It’s the 21st century, and we all have the power to produce. We take pictures on our phones, shoot videos with our GoPros, jot drafts on our tablets, write code on our laptops… We have so many tools to create, but with that comes a problem: our projects are scattered across multiple devices, drives, file systems, and websites.
Let me introduce you to Mylio, the answer to your organizational needs. Mylio is changing the way the world remembers by bringing together all your files into one convenient library so you can find everything, anytime, anywhere.
What Exactly is Mylio?
Mylio is powerful software that helps you at every stage of the photo management process. It works on any device so you can see, edit, and share your photos whenever you want. It also makes it easy to find photos fast by organizing your digital clutter in helpful ways. You can find pictures by searching in calendar view, map view, people view, or by keyword. And best of all, Mylio is free!
How Does It Work?
Mylio was created with the goal of making photography enjoyable and efficient. It does this with a powerful app that makes viewing your photos easy and intuitive. First Mylio syncs across all your devices, so you can find any photo from any device. It imports those photos (and thankfully the preexisting file structures!) from all those scattered locations and brings them together in a single, easy-to-navigate interface. The photo library software also has editing tools for touching up your photos. Then Mylio allows you to share those photos by sending them as emails or posting them to social media. And that’s just an overview! Mylio has a wealth of photo management features that let you do things your way; you may not need them all, but whatever you’re looking for, Mylio has tools that will make any photographer’s life easier.
If you’re a casual photographer, you may still be looking for a photo management system. Well look no further! Mylio’s software organizes your photos for you, helping you store, protect, and find all the photos in your library. You can make basic edits right there in the app, so you don’t have to buy a separate photo editor. Mylio also makes it easy to tag your photos; after you’ve tagged a person once, Mylio’s facial recognition automatically tags them in all future photos! You can also add flags, tags, keywords, and stars to personalize your photos and make them even easier to search.
For the Pros
For more seasoned photographers, Mylio offers a range of advanced features to improve your workflow. As mentioned, Mylio seamlessly integrates with the system you’re already using, importing not only your photos but also your file structure and tags to save you valuable time. Once imported, Mylio consolidates and protects all your photos in one library so you can manage your work efficiently. That library is available to you even without the internet, which is ideal for getting work done on the road, in the field, or on assignment. For example, you can rate, tag, and edit photos in a cab or on a plane, and once you’re back online, those changes will sync across all your devices. This means you can get work done anywhere!
As far as the specific editing tools, Mylio gives you everything you’d hope for from an intermediate photo editor. There’s the standard cropping, rotating, red eye removal, 14 filters/presets, a before and after button, face recognition, histogram & sliders, clipping, editing with brushes, noise reduction, non-destructive editing, batch editing, metadata editing, and the ability to export with a watermark. Since all of these tools work on any device, Mylio gives you the freedom to get work done anytime, anywhere.
What Makes Mylio Unique?
Mylio boasts a few key features that set it apart from the rest:
- Life Calendar
Mylio’s Life Calendar is a gift. Not only does it make finding your photos easy, it also surfaces your most popular photos for easy viewing. Mylio helps automatically organize your library by syncing with your digital calendars and displaying your media in a beautiful Life Calendar, viewable by decades, years, months, and days. Connect your Outlook, iCal, or Google Calendar, and Mylio automatically groups your photos and videos into events. Click an event title, and re-experience the joy of those photo memories.
- True Security
In our increasingly connected digital age, Mylio understands the importance of securing your photos. The first layer of protection is that your photos are synced across multiple devices, so even if one device breaks down, goes missing, or is destroyed in a natural disaster, you still have access to your entire photo library on another device. Mylio also allows you to set up a Vault, which is a secure device (desktop, laptop, or hard drive) that stores all your originals. You can also choose to sync your photos to a cloud service; if you decide to do that, Mylio automatically encrypts your photos so the cloud service won’t be able to see your personal information.
- Everything, Anytime, Anywhere
The freedom that Mylio gives you cannot be overstated. It makes all your photos available to you on any device, which is such a timesaver in the 21st century. With all your photos at your fingertips all the time, you can get so much done in so many different settings.
Want to edit your photos at the doctor’s office? Mylio lets you.

- Memories That Endure
Mylio is changing the way the world remembers. With Mylio, it’s easier than ever to find beloved photos, whether you took them a month, a year, or a decade ago. Mylio’s Life Calendar brings treasured photos to your attention by surfacing them in Calendar View. In People View, you can choose a person’s name and instantly see all the photos that person appears in. In Map View, you can see your photos on an elegant world map and zoom in to see the pictures you took in each location. All this in combination with flags, tags, keywords, and stars make finding your favorite photo memories simple and fun.
It is free to use for up to 25,000 photos and 3 devices. On top of the free version, there is also Mylio Premium and Mylio Max, which are advanced subscriptions that offer even more tools and features. The free version is a good option if you want to give this application a try and see how it works.
