I’m looking for some sort of best practice tips or documentation for setting up Mylio on Apple MacOS & iOS platforms.
As I am adding more photos/videos to my Mylio library, I found out the hard way that Mylio doesn’t let me view compressed RAF (Fujifilm raw format), CRW (old Canon raw format), WEBP, AVI, etc. so I have to convert them to a different format (eg. DNG, JPG).
It would save me a lot of time and help me plan better if I knew those limitations ahead of time.
Also looking for tips on what you should NOT do with Mylio. Previously I manually added photos from my 4TB external drive (vault) to /home/Michael/Mylio sub-folders (2002, 2003, …) on my Mac (non-vault) because I thought Mylio didn’t copy some photos as I see only XMP files. Later I realized because my Mac isn’t setup as a vault to store originals, it shouldn’t contain actual photos, so I started deleting all the photos under /home/Michael/Mylio sub-folders on my Mac, I found out that this is a BAD move as it also delete all the originals from my 4TB external drive.
It would have been nice if there’s a document on what NOT to do, so users wouldn’t repeat my mistakes.
