Creating, Editing and Viewing Events

Events in Mylio are based on a designated date or range of dates. By creating an event, you are telling Mylio that all photos from the specific date(s) can be grouped together. Creating an event does not alter or move your photos from their original location, albums, or folder views in any way. Creating an event also does not duplicate your photos, taking up no additional space.

This article will cover the creation, editing and viewing of events in both Events View and Calendar View.
