News Release – May 25, 2023

Reimagined and redesigned, Mylio Photos changes the way the world remembers.

BELLEVUE, Wash. – Today, Mylio shipped a new version of Mylio Photos that makes it easy to gather, organize, search, and enjoy even the largest photo libraries. Using all-new tools built with machine learning, finding the perfect photo is intuitive, fast, and fun.

“When your photos and videos are well organized, you no longer worry about losing track of your important memories. This reduces the stress that so often comes with disorganization,” says David Vaskevitch, founder and CEO of Mylio. “The technology we’ve developed is so intuitive that anyone can use it. We’ve built a whole new organizational approach based on human memory and machine learning. We see an opportunity to change the way the world’s photos are organized and preserved. With that in mind, we decided to relaunch Mylio Photos as a free application available to everyone.”

With this release, Mylio Photos provides every essential photo management tool in a single, intuitive app, available on every major platform — for free. No strings attached. No hidden charges and no more limits on the storage count of photos and videos.

Manage Your Memories and Protect Your Privacy   

At Mylio, two core principles of the design process are: organizing media around the way the human mind works while protecting personal privacy. Here are some of the ways Mylio Photos delivers on those values.

Local AI Processing: In Mylio Photos, every AI tool runs exclusively on users’ local devices. Their images and data never leave their control. Mylio never indexes or resells personal data because the company never takes possession of it. Our AI tools do not require the cost or privacy risks of the Cloud.


SmartTags: Mylio Photos uses computer vision to index the content of photos and videos. AI object recognition finds over 1,000 activities, objects, and properties in images. Tagging images with this information making searches much faster and far more precise — with most results in less than two seconds. 

Optical Character Recognition: Mylio Photos can read the text inside the picture. A search can read writing on signs or clothing, to unlock more details about an image.

Face Tagging: Find and identify people inside photos, with total privacy. Face tags make an entire image library searchable by person. A user can even search for combinations of people in a photo.


QuickFilters: Use details hidden inside most photos and videos (e.g., GPS, EXIF & IPTC data) to quickly organize them. Sort by date, folder, location, file type, person, camera, lens, and much more.


Photo DeClutter: Burst mode helps get just the right photo but leaves a lot of digital clutter in its wake. Identify burst mode photos and visually similar photos with Photo DeClutter, then choose to delete or hide rejected photos. To help identify the best shots, AI creates SmartTags which identify dark or blurry shots and people with eyes closed or no smiles.

Social Media Recovery: With Mylio Photos, users can reclaim and back up all the personal images and videos they have posted to major social media sites — including Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, and Google.


SafeShare: While all the data embedded in photos is valuable for searches, it has a darker side. Sharing details like the names, addresses, and times of a photo with the world can be risky. SafeShare protects privacy by giving precise control of when and where personal data is shared. All personal details in a photo can be stripped before re-sharing to the internet or social media.

A Strong Foundation for the Future

Today’s release is a preview of the new tools coming to Mylio Photos in additional releases over the next year. The Mylio Photos team continues to innovate and push the limits of what’s possible with photo organization and management. Other planned updates for the year include:

  • Private Photo Sharing: Secure transfer of original photos with precise controls.
  • Camera to Cloud Support: Connect and collaborate with new photo-sharing and transfer technology from Adobe.
  • New AI Search and SmartTags: New tools for searching and finding photos, including searching for landmarks, sporting activities, birds, and much more.
  • New tools for family heritage: Support of data and organization standards used by family heritage websites and genealogy tools.


Mylio Photos (Version 23 – Preview 1) is available today for macOS, Windows, iPadOS, iOS, and Android . The application is free to use with no limit on the files it can index and organize. It works with local storage and attached hard drives.

Mylio Photos is a free application with no time or storage limits.

Mylio Photos+ is an optional premium plan that expands the capabilities of Mylio Photos. With it, a user can connect all their devices into a single image library.

Mylio Photos+ enables a single, secure, storage-optimized library that is available on every device and protected from device loss and catastrophic disk failure.
