I created a folder at the top level, adjacent to the “Mylio Pictures” folder (and the “Android Photos” folder). I put some photos in to this new folder. I noticed under “Source Folders” in settings that both of these folders are treated as Source Folders.
My question is whether there is any meaningful difference in functionality between the Mylio Pictures folder and the new folder I created adjacent to it, other than the fact that when I import photos they must go in to the Mylio Pictures folder?
And… if there is, what is it?
For reference, I read the following (shown below) at What are folders? - Mylio, but it does not seem to answer my questions–and left me pretty confused unfortunately. For example:
- What does “if there is no other destination being utilized” mean? Does that mean there is no other device?
- What does “Mylio is now referencing an original file exclusive to Mylio” mean? The word “referencing”, specifically?
- My Mylio Pictures folder is not holding my Android media files, it is adjacent to them, so “The Mylio Pictures folder will also hold your … Android Media Library photos” seems not to be true.
- “Mylio Pictures is where most photos will be stored if you are using Mylio as a standalone photo organization application”, well ok, I guess, but… I think I am using Mylio that way, but why should most photos be stored there if I instead want to store them in the new folder I create which is adjacent to the Mylio Pictures folder (see the main question for this post)?
Each Mylio Library comes with one folder: the Mylio Pictures folder. This folder is designed to hold all of the images that are copied into Mylio if there is no other destination being utilized. For instance, photos that you have imported using the Copy command will be copied into the Mylio Pictures folder. This is because Mylio is now referencing an original file exclusive to Mylio.
The Mylio Pictures folder will also hold your iOS Camera Roll(s) and Android Media Library photos.
Mylio Pictures is where most photos will be stored if you are using Mylio as a standalone photo organization application.
