Mylio Keeps the Improvements Coming

Mylio Keeps Improvements Coming

Awhile back I started using Mylio to keep track of my images across all my devices. When I first started using this program, it was mainly due to its speed when handling three quarters of million images. It’s never been as robust as DXO Opics Pro or Lightroom for adjusting images, but the Mylio crew keeps working to improve their product on a regular basis. Not sure if Mylio will ever have the same power for editing your pictures as the two programs

Every image I've ever shot with me on even an iPhone if I want it there. Nearly 3/4's of a million images on an iPhone for goodness sakes. Hard to believe.

mentioned above, but I’ve found with the past couple of updates, Mylio does a respectable job fixing most issues I have with my pictures. Things like toning down highlights, cropping, changing white balance, captioning, keywording, etc. It’s especially useful for things that need to get out quickly, photos going out in emails, forum posts, and Blog posts, like this one.

Equally impressive is their new FREE MYLIO ACCOUNT which you can use for no charge if you’re shooting JPEGs only and don’t go beyond 25,000 images. You can also sync up to three devices with this account, which for most people might be their desktop, iPad and iPhone, or maybe a laptop instead of the desktop. I’m finding this program to be an indispensable tool for keeping track of all my pictures and having them with me at all times. Mylio is worth a look, and now that you can try them at no cost, with no time limit, how can you not give them a shot? Here’s a link to all the new features. Personally, I’m super excited about alternative options to Adobe.

    Just an update. I contacted Mylio support and JP was able to get me pointed to my NAS drive with just a couple of simple steps. As you said, they have excellent customer support and now I can’t wait to see what it can do. Thanks for the help Dan – and JP!

      Freddy, Mylio has Apple Care like service with no charge! I’ve found them to be simply amazing.

    Quick follow-up. Downloaded the program and got my photos ingested into the system. (It took almost an entire day for several hundred thousand images and videos, but I watched college basketball games for entertainment while Mylio worked!) I LOVE THIS THING! True to it’s promise, my “life” in photos popped onto the screen and I cannot explain the pleasure at being able to easily and quickly see decades-old images that I’d forgotten about. The “calendar” feature is so much fun. Can’t wait to explore the features of Mylio. (Another Huge Plus is that my wife is now very happy and can access all our “family” photos of the kids growing up and the adventures we’ve shared on her own computer!) Not only is Mylio great for organizing photos, it’s a wonderful tool for increasing family harmony.)

      Dean, I know what you mean about the calendar view. Pretty cool. Glad you are giving it a try. We need more people onboard for Mylio to gain steam and compete with Adobe. Depending on the size of the storage on your phone, you can take thumbnails of your entire Mylio library with you as well. I have my entire 700,000+ library on my 128gig IPad.

    Hi Dan. Well I finally took the bait and downloaded Mylio to check it out. I immediately ran into a problem when selecting photos to include. Mylio will not recognize my Synology NAS drive so it is dead in the water for me. The only other software that I have used that does not see the NAS drive is Booksmart by Blurb that I use for making my books. In that case I have to copy the images I want to use from my NAS to my iMac. And that is a pain. So you might want to pass this on to the Mylio team. I see Kevin Gilbert is no longer with Mylio. That was a surprise.

      Freddy, hang tight, Mylio should recognize your NAS. Have you contacted support? They have one of the best support teams I’ve ever experienced. The only restriction I know of is that ALL your images need to be on that NAS and if they are you will be good to go. http://mylio.com/support-center/team/.

    Now you’ve done it. You’ve got me “thinking like Dan!” Yesterday I signed up for a Mylio account and will begin the process of linking my photo library to all my devices. By the way, Jordan Ayan has written a great “missing manual” entitled “The Official Guide to Mylio” that I read before subscribing to Mylio. (I have the Kindle edition, but it’s also available in book format.)

    Your earlier posts concerning Mylio peaked my interest this latest confirms the wisdom of my decision to subscribe. Thanks for opening my eyes to this new tool.

    Best wishes,
    Dean

      Dean, I’ve always considered you a trend setter:)
