If you wish to save the photos to your PC, simply add your email and Photomyne will email you a download link you can open on your PC or Mac (zip folder download).

4. Photos saved! All done.

5. If you've chosen to save photos to your device, they will be saved to your device's default photos gallery app. On iPhones and iPads, access the photos you just saved using the Photos app.

A note on saving photos to your Android device: If your Android device has an SD card, the photo files of your album will be saved to the card. If you don't have an SD card, then photos will be saved locally on the device and will take up storage space accordingly.

If using the free app, you're welcome to subscribe to a Photomyne Account - this includes the full app's utility features, plus unlimited photo backup, web access to view your photos on any device or PC, and freeing up space on your device (cloud-only backup).

How photos will be saved on your device

The details you add to photos (title/description, location, year, names, etc.) will all be preserved within the app. Please consider the following when exporting (saving) Photomyne photos to your device:

  • The action of saving scanned photos to your device keeps the same photo order as it was on the app.
  • In most mobile devices, the photo gallery/camera roll will organize your new saved photos based on the year you assigned to the album in the Photomyne app.
  • In iOS devices: For your convenience, there's also a Photomyne photos album in your iOS photos app. All your saved scanned photos with the app will also appear there. If you have an android device, the scanned Photomyne photos will appear in your photos' default folder, as you defined on your device.
