Dropbox is continuing to swallow up other companies, this time acquiring photo storage site Loom. Loom emerged as an alternative to EverPix after its demise in late 2013, and I gave it a try for a few months. A review for TUAW was in my queue when the acquisition was announced.

Loom was a pretty good service, though I had some syncing issues that eventually caused me to drop it. The customer service, however, was stellar, and Loom was adding new features constantly that made it far more useful than when I first tried it in November. Loom cited Dropbox's new Carousel as one of the reasons behind joining the Dropbox team, and Loom is a fantastic fit for Dropbox.

Loom users can continue to use the service until May 16, but existing users already were sent instructions on how to migrate their photos to Dropbox with no service interruption. Free users will receive an equal amount of free space on Dropbox. Paid users will get the same amount of paid space on Dropbox for free for a year. Users also can request copies of their entire library -- albums and all -- in one zip file.
