According to IDC’s worldwide forecast, more than 1.3 trillion photos will be taken this year — and “keeping up with all those pictures is a challenge for everybody, professional and amateur alike,” says MyLO, a start-up offering a new service for “for taking care of all your pictures… for your life, and the life of your images.”
The Mylio software runs on Windows and Macintosh computers, and iOS phones and tablets (Android is in development). You can import all your photos from your computers, mobile devices, and services such as Facebook and Flickr. From there, changes made to your library of photos or edits on individual images are reflected throughout your network instantly, the company says. New photos captured on your phone automatically show up on your PC; photos copied from your camera to your computer are instantly viewable on your phone.
Bellevue, Washington-based MyLO says its service also “automatically protects your pictures so that they are safe even if your computer is stolen, your phone is lost, or your house burns down.” Back up is automatic across storage devices and an optional cloud service.
The software also provides basic and high-end photo enhancement tools, as well as Raw image editing.
The cross-device synching service is sold on a subscription basis, with prices starting at $50 per year. A free trial supports up to 1,000 files on three devices.
