Imagine a single account where all your family members -the people that appear in some or all of your scanned photos- could participate in the photo archiving process, and helped to keep your family memories alive?

What is the Family account?

We wanted to offer you and your family a collaborative way of sharing your scanned albums with your loved ones. A Family account is an interactive web gallery-based account you and your family members share, based on the photographs you scanned with the app.

Think of a beautiful (but private) online photo gallery you pass around among your parents, grandparents, grandkids, siblings, etc.. Each family member recipient can then access that same photo website on their computer or smartphone, browse the photos you scanned with the app, and marvel at those precious shared memories.

But that's only the beginning. Each person you decide to share that photo website with can add details to the photos and albums on that website, and even upload photos from their personal computer to that same place.

Additional benefits include the following:

Everyone participates - Family members can access, add comments, stories, and upload photos (require your approval).

No additional cost - Only one person upgrades and the entire family joins for free.

Auto-updated memories - All your scanned memories and details (including audio and video) are added automatically to the family account, neatly organized in albums. However, you get to choose which albums of your Photomyne account will show in your Family account.

Safe & private - Use the optional password-protected access to ensure only family members have access to your photos. Also, You can choose which albums will be displayed on your family account website.

Optimized for desktop - Enjoy the comfort of your PC or Mac’s larger screen for an enhanced experience.

Custom yet simple web address - Easy to remember when accessing or sharing with others.

How is the Family account different from a 'regular' Photomyne account?

The Family account is an additional (optional) upgrade in the Photo Scan app, available to active account members and subscribers. So if you'd like to get your family a Family account, you need to have a paid plan first.

A 'regular' Photomyne account is the plan that includes all the app's premium features plus cloud-based services:

  • Unlimited scanning
  • Unlimited photo sharing and saving to your phone or PC (in print quality)
  • Unlimited photo backup
  • Access on other devices and online on your PC
  • Free up storage space on your device
  • Unrestricted photo design effects and unlimited slideshows

A Family account is an additional upgrade on top of an existing account, and offers a collaborative way for the family to access, edit, and share photo memories in a dynamic web gallery form.

So if you're interested in having full photo and album management capabilities online for your personal use or archive (including photo rotation, moving photos between albums, etc.), a 'regular' Photomyne account is what you should get. Here's more information on how to get one.
