In most situations, one of the Device Sync Policy Presets will be suitable. However, if you need additional control over media quality (e.g., optimized or original) available on a specific device, you can create a Custom Device Sync Policy using QuickCollections.

A Custom Device Sync Policy can be configured in many ways. Here are a few examples:

  • Keep all of the 5-star photos of your favorite people on your phone as optimized quality Images so you always have a high-quality version to view and share.
  • Keep your media marked with 4-Stars, 5-Stars, and Pick Flags backed up at original quality on a cloud service.
  • Keep all Raw photos from a specific camera captured within the last 90 days on your laptop so you can edit and work with them, even when you are offline.
  1. Click the All Photos icon  in the left sidebar.
  2. Click the funnel icon in the left sidebar to open the QuickFilters tool.
  3. Add the QuickFilters you’d like to use in your QuickCollection. In this example, we’ll create a QuickCollection with every Raw photo in the Mylio Photos Library captured in the last 90 days.
    • Click the disclosure arrow next to By Date, then Date Range and pin Last 90 Days.
    • Click the disclosure arrow next to By File, then By FIle Type, then Photos and pin RAW.
  4. Click the QuickCollection icon and choose Save as New QuickCollection. Enter a name for your QuickCollection, then click Save. In this example, we’ll use the title Raw Recent.
  5. Click the Dashboard icon  in the left sidebar.
  6. Select Devices, then click or tap on a Device Card to open the Device Settings, then select Device Sync Policies.
  7. Scroll down to the Image Policies section. You can adjust the sync policy separately for:
    • Original Images – An original is a full-quality image, video, or document file.
    • Optimized Images – An optimized image is a medium-quality version of your photo (approximately 5% the size of the Original) that gives an accurate representation of your photo while taking up a fraction of the storage space necessary for the Original-quality file.
  8. In this example, we’ll modify the Sync Policy for Original Images. Select Original Images, then under Image Policies, click the button to Add QuickCollection To Sync.
  9. Scroll to the QuickCollection you created in step 3, select it, and click Add. Mylio Photos+ will automatically start syncing* the selected device based on your QuickCollection.
