What’s New in Mylio?

It’s the season of giving, and in this release, Mylio is pleased to give you the power to do more. We have been busy adding support for the RAW files of 24 new cameras (see below) just in time for the holidays. We also added Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which is a fancy way of saying Mylio lets you search for words in your photos and PDFs. Want to search for the name on a road sign or parade banner? Mylio has you covered. Can’t remember where you cataloged that PDF or that screenshot of a quote? OCR to the rescue. We also improved the notifications in Mylio to help you stay up to date on the progress of your library.

New cameras added:

Canon EOS R

As usual, we’ve been making improvements and bashing bugs to enhance your Mylio experience. Some of the improvements include a new tour, a revamp of the Free Up Space on Camera Roll screen, and the filter now includes events. Some of the bugs we bashed include fixing an issue where XMP files would be left as standalone catalog entries, fixing an issue when external drives could not be added as devices on macOS, and fixing an issue on mobile when local Previews would be slow to load.

 

See the complete list of changes and bug fixes in the link below, and as always, enjoy your photos!

Importing Apple Photos Library on a Mac

Importing Full Photos Library

Mylio makes importing your entire Apple Photos library into Mylio easy. With macOS Catalina (10.15) and newer, Mylio’s Photos import tool will watch over your original images to keep the two libraries in sync with one another.

  Note:  If you are running macOS Mojave or older, you may need to see the “Importing a Selection of Photos” tab. If you are also using iCloud Photo Library, please see this article to make sure it is configured to work alongside Mylio.

This process will not copy your photos from Apple Photos to Mylio. For this reason, Mylio has a unique relationship with your Apple Photos library in order to ensure your photos are safe inside and outside of your Mylio Library. In general, Mylio has read-only access to your Apple Photos library. Here are the guidelines for how Mylio and Apple Photos communicate:

  • When importing your photos, Mylio references the original images. It does not duplicate the image.
  • When importing, Mylio will make a Mylio-specific Thumbnail or Preview, depending on your setup.
  • If a photo is deleted from Apple Photos before Mylio is opened, the photo will not be imported.
  • If a photo imported from Apple Photos is deleted in Mylio, it will not be deleted in the Apple Photos library but will be deleted from within Mylio on all devices on the account.
  • If a photo is deleted from Apple Photos after being imported to Mylio but before the Original has synced to another device, only the Mylio-specific Thumbnail or Preview will remain and creates what Mylio calls a Lost Original.
  • Live Photos are properly synced and displayed
  • Portrait mode photos are properly synced and displayed
  • Video effects like Timelapse and Slow-mo are synced and playable in Mylio as long as the videos are stored locally (either in the Photos app or the local Mylio folder).
  • Changes made within Photos post-import will be reflected in Mylio automatically. This includes edits.
  • Metadata added in the Apple Photos application are specific to Apple Photos and are not available for Mylio to import automatically.  Instead, see the other tabs in this support article for exporting your images to include this metadata.

Import Your Photos Library

  1. Be sure the Photos application is closed.
  2. Open Mylio and select the Import icon from the top right corner of Mylio.
  3. Within the Import menu select Aperture / Photos.

  4. Mylio will search for your Photos library automatically. If Your Photos library is not found, select Other Library… and show Mylio where it is.
      Note:  Mylio can only import the System Photo Library on your Mac. If you do not see your Apple Photos library here or have multiple Photos libraries to import, see the  “Granting Mylio access to Apple Photos” tab on this page
  5. Select your Photos Library and click Continue in the bottom right.
  6. Once the information has been confirmed, select Start Import to begin the Photos import.

  7. Mylio will automatically begin to import your Photos library inside a top-level folder named “Apple Photos”. Inside “Apple Photos” will be a folder named after your Photos library.
  8. Once completed, Mylio will display a blue information bar that says “Library Import Completed” and you can close the information window by clicking the “x” in the corner.

 

Importing a Selection of Photos

This guide will walk you through importing a selection of photos or albums from Apple’s Photos. Additionally, you may want to export images using this method if your Mac is not running macOS Catalina or later or if you have more than one Apple Photos library to import.

  Note:   exporting from Photos will create new images with the edits “baked in”. The edits will not be reversible in Mylio.

The first step of moving from Photos to Mylio is to copy your files out of Photos. Note that you are copying photos, so you must have storage space on your machine for these photos.

  1. Open Photos on your Mac.
  2. Select All Photos in the top navigation bar of Photos.
  3. In this view, you should be able to select an individual photo by clicking on it one time. The photo should outline it blue.
  4. Navigate to Edit > Select All to select all images in your Photos library.
  5. With all images outlined in blue, navigate to File > Export.

    You will be given two options…

Exporting all Photos
Exporting all photos allows you to export your photos and it will include your edits directly in the photo. You will not be able to remove your edits.

When exporting all photos if you are unsure of settings, these offer high-quality versions of your photos.

  • Photo Kind: JPEG
  • JPEG Quality: Maximum
  • Color Profile: Original
  • Size: Full Size
  • Include: Both
  • File Name: Use File Name
  • Subfolder Format: Moment Name


Exporting Unmodified Originals
Exporting unmodified originals exports all of your photos without any edits that you have made applied to them.

When exporting unmodified originals, use these settings:

  • Export Original: Export IPTC as XMP
  • File Naming: Use File Name
  • Subfolder Format: Moment Name
  1. Once completed, select Export. You will be asked where you would like to save your photos.
  1. Locate the Mylio Library (in your home folder by default) and select to export your photos into the Mylio Pictures folder.
  1. Open Mylio, the photos will be imported automatically.

Importing Specific Albums

The first step of moving your albums from Photos to Mylio is to copy your files out of Photos. Note that you are copying photos, so you must have storage on your machine for these photos. If you have already exported all photos to Mylio this will create additional copies of your already exported images.

  1. Open Photos on your Mac.
  2. Select the album(s) that you wish to import into Mylio from the left side of Photos.
  3. With the album open, navigate to the Edit > Select All.
  4. Navigate to File > Export. You will be given two options:

Exporting all Photos
Exporting all photos allows you to export your photos and it will include your edits directly in the photo. You will not be able to remove your edits.

When exporting all photos if you are unsure of settings, these offer high-quality versions of your photos.

  • Photo Kind: JPEG

  1. Locate the Mylio Library (in your home folder by default) and select to export your photos into the Mylio Pictures folder.
  1. Open Mylio, the photos will be imported automatically.

Granting Mylio access to Apple Photos

If you are having issues importing your Apple Photos library, the Photos Library currently in use by the Photos app may not be set as the “System Photo Library”. Mylio can only access one “System Photo Library” so make sure that the library you want to use in Mylio is set as the “System Photo Library”.

This can be set in the preferences for Photos. In the top Menu bar of macOS, select Photos->Preferences. In the General tab you will see the “Use as System Photo Library” button.


If the Use as System Photo Library button is not greyed out, then you will need to click that button to make that library the System Photo Library.

  Note:   Switching this setting to try and have Mylio import more than one library is not currently supported. If you need to import additional libraries please see the other tabs on this page explaining how to export the media from Photos to Mylio manually.

Another possible cause that can prevent you from importing to Mylio is that Mylio has not been given permission to access the Photos Library. This needs to be resolved via the macOS System Preferences App. Once System Preferences is opened, select Security & Privacy->Photos and make sure there is a checkmark next to Mylio.

Troubleshooting: Updating Mylio

Mac and Windows

Keeping Mylio up to date means that you always have the newest features and tools at your fingertips. If an update for Mylio is available, you will be prompted to install the update automatically. If you decline to update Mylio, you will be asked again each time the application is closed and reopened. If you are having trouble using the in-app update methods, you can also download the latest installer from https://mylio.com/get-app. Installing an update of Mylio over an existing installation will not affect your photos or other user data as long as you follow the instructions listed here.

iOS and Android

Like most apps, Mylio will update automatically from the iOS App Store or the Google Play Store. However, you can manually check to see if an update is available on these devices as well.

  1. Open the App Store on iOS or the Play Store on Android.
  2. On iOS, Select Updates in the bottom right, on Play Store navigate to My Apps.
  3. If an update is available for Mylio, it will be listed here. Select Update on the right side to install the update.

Sharing Original Files on a Computer

Mylio allows you to quickly and easily export images that are part of your library. These can then be used in other image editing programs or shared with others.

  Note:   Mylio cannot export RAW images on iOS and Android at this time.

Export Non-RAW Images with edits and/or Metadata

  1. Select the images you wish to export. You can also select a folder or album if you wish to export all enclosed items.
  2. Select the Share icon in the Quick Actions Bar.
  3. From the Share menu, select Export.
  4. The export dialog will allow you to change your export settings, including resolution, metadata, quality, and auto-renaming files. To export an original copy, select:
    1. File Type: JPEG, PNG, or TIFF
    2. Resolution – Original
    3. Quality – Maximum
        Note:  Original files must be synced locally to the device you are exporting from for Actual Resolution and Maximum Quality. All edits that have been made to the image will become part of the exported images. Once these options are set, select Export.
  5. Select the destination that you would like the images exported to. If you would like them in a new folder, you can do so with the New Folder option in the bottom left. Once completed, select Open.

RAW Images or Unmodified Originals

  1. From the Share menu, select Export.
  2. The export dialog will allow you to change your export settings, including resolution, metadata, quality, and auto-renaming files. To export an original copy, select:

    File Type: 
    Unmodified Original
      Note:  Original files must be synced locally to the device you are exporting from for Actual Resolution and Maximum Quality. No edits that have been made to the image in Mylio will be exported.
  3. Select the destination that you would like the images exported to. If you would like them in a new folder, you can do so with the New Folder option in the bottom left. Once completed, select Open.

Some resolutions are not available

When exporting an image, Mylio will display all possible choices but gray out the ones that aren’t available. When that happens, Mylio will indicate that some resolutions are not available.

 

Some possible reasons why a resolution is not available could be:

  1. The required file (Original and possibly Preview) is not on the computer you are exporting from.
    • To fix this, connect your computer with another device on your account that has the Original, Right-click on the photo before exporting and use the “Download: Originals or previews” option to bring the file to the machine.
  2. The original file is smaller than Mylio’s available (Small, Medium, Large) options.
    • No fix for this other than to export at the maximum resolution possible.
  3. The Original is not viewable on the machine. This is most commonly seen when a HEIC file is being exported on a Windows computer and the export file type is not set to “Unmodified Original”. Some high-efficiency format phototypes are not natively able to be rendered on Windows. Mylio can’t create a JPG, PNG, or TIFF with the original. What will be available instead is Preview quality resolution and lower assuming the preview is downloaded locally.
    • For HEIC photos on Windows, you may need to install additional software or codecs. Alternatively, you may need to export from another device (macOS, iOS, Android) if available.

Protecting Media to Microsoft OneDrive

Mylio allows you to protect your photos to the cloud by protecting your library with Microsoft OneDrive. Once this feature is enabled, any media within your Mylio Library will automatically be protected to OneDrive. If your device is lost, stolen, or broken you can retrieve all synced media from OneDrive and fully repopulate your Mylio Library – including photos, videos, files, metadata, albums, events, labels, and any other Mylio specific data. OneDrive can also be used to populate Mylio on computers that are not able to be synced peer-to-peer.

Once OneDrive has been added as a Vault it will be listed in the Devices section of the Dashboard. Unlike other Vaults, protecting your files to OneDrive does not give you the ability to edit data within OneDrive for reflection in Mylio. This feature is designed solely as a tool for Mylio to communicate with and is not an alternative uploader for OneDrive.

 

Uploading Encrypted vs Unencrypted

Before deciding on an encryption method, it is important to understand that Mylio utilizes OneDrive as a Vault for your files. Mylio does not preserve your file structure when uploading, and changes should not be made to the uploaded files on the OneDrive website (even if uploaded unencrypted). This protection method is solely meant to protect your Mylio Library and not designed to give compatibility between the two services.

Uploading Encrypted


Mylio’s default behavior is to upload your photos as encrypted files. If your images are uploaded encrypted, Mylio will encrypt your files in a way that Microsoft is not able to read these images, keeping your library fully secure. This ensures the highest level of protection as Mylio is the sole key to locking and unlocking your images.

Encrypted OneDrive protection uploads your files as “other files” and not “photos”, which means you will see a series of “.bin” files in your OneDrive. These are your encrypted files.

Mylio protects your images in the cloud with AES 256bit encryption. Only your Mylio account can be used to unencrypt these images.

Uploading Unencrypted


Mylio will upload your files directly to OneDrive in full, original quality. These images will upload as their actual file-extension and be viewable by OneDrive. Mylio will not be needed to view your images. However, your file structure and folder structure will not be visible in OneDrive.

Working with OneDrive in Mylio

Adding OneDrive as a Mylio device

1. Open Mylio on a computer or mobile device and open the Dashboard.

2. Select the plus sign in the top right of the Devices section of the Dashboard.

 

3. Select OneDrive.

4. Mylio will display the Add Cloud Storage options. Here, you can decide if you wish to upload your files as encrypted or unencrypted. Once decided, select Add OneDrive at the bottom of this window.

 

5. Sign in to the Microsoft account that you wish to protect your files to.

6. Once signed in, Mylio will display OneDrive within the Dashboard as a Vault.

Restoring Mylio from OneDrive


In some cases, you may need to restore your Mylio Library from OneDrive. This may happen if your device is lost, stolen, broken, or if you are starting Mylio on a remote device that cannot connect to another device via a peer-to-peer connection. By signing in to your Mylio account that has previously been protected to OneDrive, Mylio will automatically download your media in the quality designated by your device’s default Sync Policy. You can adjust the Sync Policy for individual files or folders if you wish to keep higher or lower quality photos on your device.

  1. Open and sign in to the Mylio account previously associated with OneDrive.
  2. Open the Dashboard and ensure OneDrive is listed as a Vault.
  3. Mylio will automatically begin to download your Mylio catalog and library to the new device.
      Note:  this process may take time. To speed up syncing connect to another device via a peer-to-peer connection that has your Mylio Library.

 

Unregistering OneDrive

If you wish to unregister OneDrive as a location that Mylio can sync to, you can do so from the service’s device preferences. By unregistering OneDrive, you will prevent Mylio from protecting any new media to OneDrive. Media currently on OneDrive will not be removed from the service.

  Warning:   If OneDrive is unregistered and then set up again your library will need to fully resync to the service.
  1. Open Mylio’s Dashboard and navigate to the Devices section.
  2. Select OneDrive and open the Device Settings menu.
  3. Select Unregister Device.
  4. Confirm that you would like to unregister the device by typing in your Mylio password.

The Quick Actions Bar

 

Mylio’s Quick Actions Bar gives you one-click or one-tap access to tools that you may need to access often. The Quick Action Bar can be seen at the right side of Mylio when the Details panel is closed and split between the top and bottom of the Details panel when opened.

 

The Quick Actions Bar list of actions will change depending on what you have selected. Here are some of the actions you’ll be able to find in the Quick Actions Bar.

 

  1. Toggle Details Panel – this button will open or close the Details panel
  2. Rating – Opens the Rating bar for quick access to tagging, labeling, flagging, or pinning your selection
  3. Share – Share the selected image or set of images via email, social media, or even directly to your computer’s file system. Sharing on a mac computer also has Airdrop and iMessage options.
