All your photos, organized and at your fingertips.

Overview

Mylio keeps all your photos organized and at your fingertips, bringing the million moments of your life back together again in a Life Calendar.

Features:
  • Find Any Photo, Fast - Photos can be like puzzle pieces, scattered across different devices, and places like Facebook. Mylio acts as a photo organizer to put the pieces back together again to make a whole picture, then makes that picture available on all your devices. Now you can find the one you want in seconds.
  • Discover Your Life Calendar - Put those scattered moments of your life back in order, and into a calendar where you can make sense of them. Find things you’d lost, tag life chapters and people, rate your favorites, or clean out what you don’t want. Anything you do will sync across all your devices.
  • Make Your Pictures Perfect - Watch your pictures pop with easy-to-use editing tools and filters. Tweak photos fast with one-click presets, or fine tune them to pristine pixels. Edit on any device, anyplace - even offline. The best part? Mylio edits are non-destructive, so original images are always safe.
  • Spread the Love - Use Mylio as a launch pad to connect with others: quickly and easily post to social media; tell stories with video or slideshows; show your work in a portfolio; use it as a photo organizer to display your products in a catalogue; build a collage and print it -- really big. Or, just send an email to Mom.
  • Achieve Photo Peace of Mind - Know exactly how many copies you have of your original photos, where they are, and whether you should consider making more. Mylio’s unique protection system works privately, off the internet, using device-to-device syncing. Your stuff stays where it should be - with you, and in your control.

What's new in Mylio

Version 3.5.5815:
  • We’ve Upgraded to Notifications: Instead of banners, Mylio’s new notification and activity center keeps your alerts and progress out of the way so you can continue to enjoy your media without disruption. You choose when you want to open the Notifications and Activity Center to see what Mylio is working on and any issues you should be aware of.
  • Folder Events: Quickly populate your Life Calendar™ by using the “Show Folder as Calendar Event” button. This automatically creates an Event in your calendar containing images from that folder. You can even save filters to display only the images from a folder that you want in the event!
  • Easier Sync Controls: Control what images are on what devices using Mylio’s new Sync Policy Settings. Tap to Sync allows you to easily change the quality of folders, while the Sync Panel gives you full control of all of your devices. Not looking for too many options? We have you covered with an improved auto-optimization process and Simple Custom options as well. Check out these changes by opening the Device settings from the Dashboard or Sync Panel (if enabled).

This is a very good app if you have a need for what it does.

I've been looking for an easy to use DAM since the demise of Aperture. It needs to be easy to use as the people I live with aren't that interested in learning Capture One and, frankly, the performance of Lightroom is poor. This is further complicated by the range of devices used - point and shoot camera, Phone and a DSLR. 70k images in one Library, mixed Raw and Jpeg.

The very good: it's fast. I can whiz around through the library really quickly, It has 'good enough' editing tools for the Jpeg shooter and you can also use any app you prefer at all for the job, you're not limited to it and Lightroom only. I'm not impressed with the Raw processing, no problem. I can send the images to DXO PhotoLad or Luminar, process them and save them. They show up in Mylio in a few moments - as in, like less than 60seconds. So, it's not limiting in any way.

The cool: (and sometimes misunderstood)... you can share that Library to any other Mac, PC, iOS or Android device you have, and you do it over your home network, not the internet. (You can also do it over the Internet but - and some are confused by this - it is not compulsory.) The sync works and is fast. You can choose to have originals on all the devices, or small versions. You can do organising work on any device and it will sync back to all the others when you're in your own home/network. This is amazing. It just works. Apple should buy this.

To use Mylio you have to register with them. This is quite common now, you do the same with ON1 PhotoRaw for instance. It's their basic protection. It also means that adding a device simply means signing on the device. Then choosing what to sync. Libraries up to 25k items are free. From there to 100k items are about $10 per month. Yes it is a subscription app. If you don't like that, then fine, nothing here for you. If, on the other hand, you think it's good that they have a sustainable business plan... and that you won't have to move to something else if they collapse in a few months, then it might be worth it. For much larger libraries, yes it is more expensive again.

You do not pay to edit raws, you can send them to another processor without paying. If you want to process them with this app then you pay, and there's an added shortcut to Lightroom.

Your files are stored in folders in the Finder. No hidden library, no ingestion and so on. You can, for instance, easily surf that library with any app you prefer, edit and save, and the changes occur will show up in Mylio in a couple of seconds. So there is no lock in.

The bad: no stacking, there is a bit of a learning curve.

I can see no reason to have to register an app that is simply a photo viewer. Especially when there are free apps such as Phiewer that do an admirable job. No, thanks.

It's not "simply a photo viewer", and is a *much* more complex and feature rich app than Phiewer. It's a Digital Asset manager with non-destructive processing and a whole wealth of other features. It manages - not just views - Raw and Jpeg images. It shares your images across all your devices. And that's just the beginning. That comparison is not remotely accurate.

Image import is easy enough, from Apple Photos and loose images in folders. Haven't tried devices yet (cameras, etc), but that's not my focus. Basic editing, browsing, tagging, all seems familiar and snappy. The app itself can be customized within reason, from overall look to picture display. Finding an image by date is neat, and so is creating albums, managing events, etc. At first glance, the app feels mature enough to manage pictures -- something Apple doesn't seem to want to offer anymore. From the point of ease of use, I give this app praise. There doesn't seem to be a way to use the app without giving them your email and letting it connect to the internet. If I was interested in online-features, I'd say "ok", but I don't want to share my data or metrics with Mylio, and I don't let my production setup connect to the internet. Looking at the programs console and Little Snitch, Mylio wants to connect home quite often (mostly during import). I have more than 25k images, which means I either use the mobile device version (nope), or pay a MONTHLY FEE. I see no pay-once-and-done option, and I am not going to shell out about USD 250 per year to manage only 500k of my images (or about USD 100 for 100k images, or nada for just 25k). I cannot fathom what causes the difference in the number of images (which, reading forum posts around the web, had been increased in the past years, leading me to believe the limit is arbitrarily calculated). My various collections combined are way over the 500k limit (which Apple Photos can handle). I wonder what happens to my images if I stop paying, the company goes under, or [insert event here]. Yes, I could store more images without paying top tier, but I do not want them on my iDevices, where space is rather limited. You also pay for RAW stuff and Lightroom integration -- again, monthly. The same counts for the ability (!) to connect to a cloud service (which you have to pay separately). I understand that programmers need to get paid for their work, perhaps code licenses, administrative and online distribution costs (oh, and good marketing). Make me pay once, charge me for pro stuff, let me pay for upgrades down the road. So far, this program looks promising for the casual user, not if you have a rather large collection of pictures to manage (even semi-professionally). This relates directly to me disagreeing vehemently with a subscription model for desktop software capabilities (I agree with subscriptions for a valuable service, like online file storage, news services, entertainment, etc). The world may be moving towards a subscription industry, but I contend this to be the works of marketing specialists and not end users. The only use I would have for this program is image management, and it does so rather well, already so much better than Apple's Photos. Again, if you are a casual user with mobile devices, this program sounds fantastic. Every collection grows, so keep the file limit in mind.

Using it as a replacement for Aperture and Photos to organize photos and sync them between Macs and iOS devices. Sync has been working reliably for me so far.
