Embracing History.

"We created Ponga so that family stories could come to you through the memories locked up in your collection of photos."

~ Cameron Crowe

"We carry sacred memories that remind us of who we are."

~ Melinda Earlywine

"We are a community preserving images through stories to share with those who matter most."

~ Alexander Black

"Photos are like mirrors reflecting the family stories that define us."

~ Barbara Tien

"We are excited to hear your feedback and success stories! If Ponga isn’t easy and fun I want you to let me know."

~ Jerrel Fielder
We built Ponga to be a fun, creative space to create, discover, and share images with loved ones and not with advertisers. Our dream became a reality two years ago when we implemented a membership model on an already richly featured platform.

Features allow you to highlight the person or detail in a photo with a zoom and a click. If there is a URL containing information such as a location link, a resource document, or a book that goes with your image, you can add it to the picture.
We priced Ponga at an affordable price — it’s worth every penny when you’re working on a photo identification project, family history, or want to keep track of people, places, and things. All without any ads popping up to distract you!

To get you started, we’ve teamed up with some industry experts to offer gifts and a discount on your first year. We hope you enjoy Ponga!

Meet the Folks Behind Ponga

“We created Ponga so that family stories could come to you through the memories locked up in your collection of photos.”
Cameron Crowe, Business Development
"I love building a community of people who want to preserve their most meaningful moments and connect them with loved ones in the present day. It's so important to connect in this instant, experiencing what you're feeling when a vintage photo is seen for the first time, or a family heirloom discovered. Ponga does that, it connects precious moments!”
Melinda Earlywine, Community and Marketing
“Wisdom comes from retelling stories of our past with the benefit of hindsight. Ponga creates a powerful new way to reconnect and share those very old stories.”
Barbara Tien, Product & Customer Champion
“Some family trees have beautiful leaves, and some have just a bunch of nuts. Remember, it is the nuts that make the tree worth shaking.”
