There are so many ways to shoot photos these days—with a smart phone, tablet, camera, action cam—and so many places to share them, that it's easy to wind up with a huge collection of photos in multiple locations. That makes it hard to keep track of photos and even harder to ensure that they're all backed up.

These are some of the problems that Mylio, a new photo-organizing service, is aiming to solve. This new service—which is compatible with Windows computers, Macs, iOS mobile devices, and soon Android devices—was announced last night at the PhotoPlus Expo show in New York City.

To find the right point-and-shoot or advanced camera, check out our buying guide.

In a nutshell, Mylio is designed to bring together your far-flung pictures—from Facebook, Flickr, SD cards, mobile devices, computers, and hard drives—into one location. The company said the service automatically replicates pictures to a phone, notebook, or tablet so you can work on them anywhere, even when there is no Internet access. Furthermore, Mylio will automatically back up photos. 

At the launch event, the product manager demonstrated how a change to a photo on one device (such as a crop) was almost instantly applied across the copies on the other devices. Additionally, he showed how quickly he could scroll through thousands of photos. Images appeared crisp and sharp, not blurry and low-res like the thumbnail images in some other photo-organizing software and services.

Mylio is available now, in three subscription plans: a basic plan (JPG files only, simple editing for up to three devices, up to 50,000 images), $50 a year; a standard plan (JPG and RAW files, full editing for up to five devices, up to 100,000 images), $100 a year, and an advanced plan (up to 10 devices, up to 500,000 images), $250 a year.

We’ll be taking a test run with this photo-organizing system to see if it lives up to its claims, so check back soon.
