Organize Your Photos with the "Inbox" Method

According to a study from 2017, the average person takes between 3000 and 4000 photos every year. Of course, no one knows the exact number, but we do know for sure that everyone takes a LOT of photos.

10 to 20 years from now, many people will discover that their photos and memories are lost. There is a thousand ways to lose them. Perhaps they kept them on iCloud and switched to Android or to an OS that has not yet been invented today.

Or the photos are so disorganized that they might as well be lost. What can you do with a big folder of 50,000 photos, if you can even open it.

Everyone will need cloud based photo organizing services like Myra Cloud and those who didn’t start using it, will regret the permanent loss of their memories.

Unfortunately, our human minds are not designed to remember everything. In fact, they are designed to forget and “archive” memories which can only be accessed when there is a trigger. That’s what photos are!

Organize with the Inbox method

So keeping your photos backed up is of course important, but keeping them organized is important too. That’s why Myra Cloud introduced the very simple, but very useful “Inbox Method”.

You simply keep the app on and allow it to upload to your Inbox. Once in a while, when you have a moment, you access your Inbox on your desktop computer. Myra Cloud will then analyze the time taken and the location and SUGGEST folders for you.

Competitors try to make this fully automated, but AI is not that good yet. AI should be there to HELP you, not to take control. So if you like the suggestions, you just approve the new folders and your photos are organized. If you want to tweak it, you can easily and QUICKLY select and move photos from folder to folder and organize the folders however you want.

Organize by themes

Automatic organizers, always group photos based on date or location. That might work out some times, but that’s not actually how a human wants to organize their photos. It is highly individual and depends greatly on the content of the life of each person.

For example, if I play music, I would like to have a folder called “Concerts” and keep a folder for each concert, including of course the date and maybe some other information, like how many people attended or who was in the band that day.

Perhaps I want a sub folder with after-party photos that are not meant to be shared on social media, but still photos that you’d be interested to see later.

On the other hand, if you do not get a photo organizing tool like Myra Cloud, 10 years from now, all the stages will look the same, with fuzzy lights, fog machine background, dancing people you don’t know who are and you won’t even know what bands you saw. At that time, it is too late to get Myra Cloud.


A totally free photo backup service with 100 GB free space. Enough for about 10,000 photos in Full HD

No! With Myra Cloud you always maintain the original resolution that the photo was shot in. We automatically make smaller versions as well so you can more easily and quickly browse your photos.

The expensive part is the infrastructure to handle global scale and that is already done. Space is in itself not very expensive and we hope of course some people upgrade to Premium or order the occasional photo book.

For starters, the you get 50 times more free space in Myra Cloud than in Dropbox and if you need more, that’s cheaper too. Also, if you don’t want the whole world to see your private family pictures, then Dropbox might not be a good choice, as it’s scattered with “Share” buttons that no one is really sure how exactly works.

Facebook will decrease your photo quality to a level where it is unusable for print. Myra Cloud will not decrease your photo quality at all and you will maintain the original quality that the photo was shot in!

Good question. Google has a good offering with Google Photos, but if you are interested in storing full resolution photos at low cost, then Myra Cloud is the clear winner. You get 5 times more free space and when you run out, Myra Cloud is still about 3 times cheaper.

Another reason you might prefer Myra Cloud is that Google Photos is just so feature heavy that it is very slow and seems no longer to be about your photos. Myra Cloud is focused on giving a FAST browsing experience, even on low end laptops.

Not today, but very soon. Videos are not the main focus of Myra Cloud, but we will definitely support uploading videos, playing them back and downloading them again.
