Episode 98: Collect Photo Stories with Storyglory

Have you ever wished that you could verbally tell the story of a photo and connect it to the image?  Suppose you could do that through an app or a phone call.  And it was FREE.  There is a company that offers a way to save those photo stories by putting pictures and words together. It’s pretty amazing.   It’s called Storyglory.me

On a visit home to Minneapolis one holiday, my guest  found a box of old photos in the closet, spread them out on the kitchen table, and started scanning them with his phone. The process inspired him to found Storyglory.me

Storyglory.me helps families capture these emotional moments present in photographs in an elegant, heartfelt way with voice, photos, and video. Built from the ground up with privacy in mind, Storyglory enables family storytelling and sharing that would be uncomfortable on public and advertising-supported social media. Brad Nemer (CEO) founded the company in 2015 in San Francisco and is joined in leadership by co-founder Graham Myhre (CTO).
