Downloading the original or optimized versions for a specific image or series of images can be helpful if you do not want to change the sync policy for an entire folder. Mylio Photos has three photo-quality sizes that can be stored on your devices:

Thumbnails – A thumbnail file is a miniature version of your photo (less than 1% the size of the Original) that is used for referencing your entire library. Every device added to your Mylio Account will have thumbnail versions of your entire library.
Optimized Quality – An optimized image is a medium-quality version of your photo (approximately 5% of the original’s size) that accurately represents your photo while taking up a fraction of the storage space necessary for the Original.
Original Quality – An original is a full-quality image file. File sizes can vary widely, depending on the resolution and pixel dimensions of the photo.

  1. Select up to 100 images.
  2. Right-click your selection or tap the kebab icon in the right sidebar to access the Actions menu.
  3. Next to Download, select Originals or Optimized.
  4. Mylio Photos will download the requested files to your current device.
