Mylio Photos’ Map view shows your geotagged photos pinned to a map. Many cameras, including most smartphones, can record GPS location data when a photo is captured. Mylio Photos uses that information to create your Map view automatically. If you have photos without GPS data, you can easily add a location to the images so they appear in the Map view.

  1. Click the Map icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Zoom in to see additional detail and more precise locations.
    • Using a touchscreen or a trackpad – Zoom using a pinch-in and pinch-out gesture.
    • Using a mouse – Click the plus and minus icons at the bottom of the map to Zoom in and out. You can also use the Zoom slider located in the right sidebar.
  3. Search for a specific location by clicking into the Find Location field at the top of the map.
  4. Filter for a location by clicking on the Navigation icon in the left sidebar.
    • Use the View by option to sort the list by Name (Alphabetical) or by Media Count.
    • Enter a location into the Filter list by place name field, or click on a disclosure arrow to expand each country, region, and city.
    • Click on the location you want to view to zoom the map to the selected area automatically.
  5. To view a set of pinned photos, click or tap on the thumbnail pin to view the photos in a grid.
  6. To adjust the placement of a pin tap and hold or right-click on the pin.
    • Remove GPS will delete the location information for the selected photos.
    • Edit Location will allow you to move and adjust the placement of the pin on the map. When you’re satisfied with the placement, click the green checkmark on the pin to confirm. To cancel placement, click the red X .

Change the Map Style

  1. Click the Map icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Click the ellipsis icon in the top app bar to access the More menu.
  3. Choose Map Style, then select Standard, Satellite Hybrid, or Topographical.

Organize the Map Navigation List

The left panel navigation displays all tagged locations in your library, making it easy to browse and search places by name. However, you may notice some naming inconsistencies, such as separate entries for places like “USA” and “United States” or “CA” and “California”. This can occur when metadata has been manually entered, added by different applications such as a previous asset manager, or originates from an older camera that used a different metadata format for location. This section will walk you through consolidating these entries and simplify finding your photos by place.

  1. Open the Map Navigation by clicking on the Navigation icon in the left sidebar.
  2. If you locate inconsistent naming, make a note of the place name you’d like to change. In this example, the majority of media in the library is listed in the “United States,” but there is also a listing for “USA.” Let’s update the media under “USA” to “United States”.

  3. Click the Dashboard icon  in the left sidebar, select Library Stats, then choose Places. Locate the listing for the place you want to change, click the arrow to expand the list under “USA,” then click a number to view media with that metadata.

  4. Select the media, then click the info icon at the top of the right sidebar to reveal the right panel and access the Info Panel.
  5. Scroll down to the Places section, then click on the field you wish to edit to open the Edit Location Metadata dialog.
  6. Make any necessary corrections. In this example, we’ll replace “USA” in the “Country” field with “United States”, then click Save.

  7. Double-click the Map icon in the left sidebar to return to the top level of the Map view, then click the Navigation icon in the left sidebar. Note that “USA” is no longer an entry and that media is now listed under “United States.”
