Mylio Photos can be installed on any Windows, Android, macOS, or iOS device that meets Mylio’s system requirements. Mylio Photos+ is designed to make all your photos and videos accessible on all your devices. Each device can store Original files or sync optimized versions to save storage space.

Mylio Photos+ also offers the option to designate devices and cloud services as Vaults to protect your Original images and Mylio Photos catalog. Any device with enough storage to hold your photo library can be designated as a Vault. Common devices for Vaults are external drives and desktop computers.

Add Media vs. Add Device – What is the Difference?

Adding a Device is different from adding and importing media. While these two options might sound similar, they serve very different purposes.

  • Adding Media is the process of making photos and videos visible in your Mylio Photos Library. This is done by Moving or Copying media to a folder that Mylio Photos is watching, or adding a Linked Folder, which tells Mylio Photos to watch that specific folder. Media can also be added from online services (such as Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, and Google Photos) or from the iOS Camera Roll or Android Media Library on a smartphone or tablet.
  • Adding Devices to Mylio Photos+ adds places for your photos to live. Devices can be for viewing – such as your laptop or mobile phone, or storage – such as an external hard drive or cloud service. Devices such as desktop computers with a lot of storage capacity can be used for viewing and storage.
