- Select a photo or group of photos then go to the Photo Menu in the top menu bar. Mouse over Open With then choose the editing application you wish to use. If you don’t see the application you’d like to use, choose Other…. Navigate to the application using Windows Explorer or macOS Finder, then choose Open.
- Edit as desired with the selected application. When you’re finished, choose Save As or Export, give your edited photo a unique file name, then save the edited photo to the same folder as the Original. Mylio Photos will see the new version and add it to your library automatically.
Using an External Editor with a Catalog/Editing History
Mylio Photos cannot see edits made in external photo applications. Edits must be exported from external editors to be visible in Mylio Photos. If you prefer to make use of a third-party catalog to preserve your edit history and want to see your edits in Mylio Photos, you can export a JPG Display Copy for Mylio Photos.
Creating a display copy:
- From the external application, use the Export or Save As command to create a JPG and append _display to the file name (i.e., photo1.jpg would become photo1_display.jpg).
- Save this file to the same folder as the Original photo file. Mylio Photos will stack the Display Copy and show the edited version in your Mylio Photos Library.
If you need to refine your edits or export a full-resolution copy of your photo from your external editor, open the application you used for editing and export directly from that application.
