File revisions are saved automatically, and users can download current and previous versions. A comparison tool displays changes that have been made. Comments and visual markers can be added to files, and updates can be sent via email or Slack.
Files can be searched using keywords, descriptions and custom metadata fields. Keywords can also be generated automatically. Pics.io can read metadata from various media formats and is IPTC compliant.
A support forum, live chat and email support are available. The software is priced on a per-user, per-month basis or via a pay-as-you-go model.

Pics.io gives the user the ability to add other people to the project to get help and collaboration and once they are not needed anymore the user can easily remove them. This team can contribute with their own comments and marks and the user would receive notifications of everything. Pics.io is supported on just about every platform.
There are however some better software that can do a similar job and are cheaper. Other then that I believe this is a really good software.

Angelo from AKH Photography
I used Pics.io for my personal photo business. I wanted a way to be able to collaborate with my fellow photographers and editors on certain projects and I found this software to be somewhat useful. I liked the fact that it works right on top of Google Drive, but I wanted something more to it -- maybe something more fluid streamlined. Maybe it hasn't dawned on me just yet, but I feel as if Pics.io is still not matured enough to compete with other software giants like Adobe, etc..

Pics.io was a answer for my question - "How I can work with outsorce designers". First probem that was soved - version control. I is very easy to make revisions and visual comments with this service. Google Drive allow to improve workflow speed.

Easy to add new revisions, compare it, discuss with the customer directly in the chat (they called it "activity panel"). I can finally put all images into folders (¿collections"), add tags, keywords, colors, etc. Powerful search. I create from some collection web-site gallery and send to the customers, right in the Picsio, right now.

Pics.io is build on top of google drive, so I was able to get unlimited storage just for 10$ extra. Friendly interface, nice features, as example I was able to create website with my portfolio in two clicks. Totally worth their money.
