Welcome to Sidepic

Sidepic keeps photos separate.
It’s that simple.

Download on the App Store

Sidepic stores photos separate from your main library.

It’s perfect for photos you don’t want cluttering your main photo library. Like pics you don’t want synced by the Photos app, images you gather from the web, or any other photos you want to keep separate. Sidepic keeps photos on your device so they are always available, just off to the side.

Photos App Friendly

Import pictures into Sidepic from the Photos app, and export back to the Photos app, too.

Add from Anywhere

Send photos to Sidepic from any app supporting iOS actions — open the share pane and tap “Save to Sidepic”.

Pasteable Photos

Copy an image to the clipboard from any app, then paste it into Sidepic as a new photo.

Sync with iTunes

Connect your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to iTunes, then drag and drop images between your computer and Sidepic.

A simple solution for separate photos.

Import pictures from your Photos library.
Paste a photo from the clipboard.
Add photos via iTunes when connected to your Mac or PC.
Save to Sidepic from apps that support iOS image share actions.

Delete multiple photos (from the grid) or single photos (when viewing).
Looks great in both landscape and portrait orientations.

More Details

Sidepic is pretty simple and easy to use.
But there are a few details to keep in mind:

Does Sidepic password-protect photos?
No. Sidepic is not intended to hide photos or keep secrets. It’s not password-protected, disguised as a fake app, or anything else sneaky. It’s just a simple and convenient way to keep photos separate from the Photos app.
How does Sidepic organize my photos?
Sidepic stores photos as one big collection of pictures, ordered by the date they were added. The newest photos are at the bottom. (Tip: tap the empty space below the photo grid to quickly jump to the last row of photos.)
How do I use the Save to Sidepic feature?
First, make sure you’re using another app that supports sharing images — it won’t work if the app shares links or other kinds of content. If you see the standard iOS action for saving an image (to your Photos app) then saving to Sidepic should also work. Swipe the row of gray buttons so you can see the right-most “More” button. Tap “More” and turn on the Save to Sidepic action. You can also reorder the actions to move Save to Sidepic higher in the list.
Are Sidepic photos backed up?
Photos in Sidepic are backed up as part of your normal iTunes or iCloud backup. If you don’t want your Sidepic photos to use up iCloud storage space, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage and exclude Sidepic.
