Custom sync preferences can be used in a variety of ways. For instance, you can set all media rated 5 stars to sync original photos.

With Mylio, you can take your entire photo library with you. Custom sync preferences are not designed to limit which photos are syncing to your device, only what quality of the photo is syncing. To not display an image at all, please see Hiding Unsynced Folders.
