My husband is a teacher so most of our family travel family occurs during summer vacation.  At the end of every summer, I put together a little photo book of our summer adventures. The kids love them!

The only problem is that these days I have photos on my phone, my husband’s phone, my daughter’s iPod, and my “fancy” camera.  Trying to find a way to get everyone’s photos in one place to make our summer scrapbook has become a major headache.

How to Organize Photos and Media with MiMedia

MiMedia Personal Cloud

This summer I’m getting our digital media organized with MiMedia.

What is MiMedia?

MiMedia is a personal cloud that can store photos, videos, music and documents in one awesome place.  Unlike other media sharing programs, MiMedia’s platform was created specifically for parents. So it’s easy to use and organize your memories.

How Does MiMedia Work?

MiMedia works seamlessly on phones, tablets, desktop and browser.  You can take a photo on your phone and upload it to MiMedia. Or you can take a photo on your “fancy” camera and upload it via the desktop app. Then you can access all your photos, music, videos and more from your phone, tablet or desktop.

As an example of how MiMedia works seamlessly, over Memorial Day weekend we went boating with extended family and friends. My friend took some photos of my husband, daughter and I in the water on her phone.  I wanted them for our book. So she texted the photos to me.

I added the photo with the arrow right from my friend’s text message to my MiMedia account. I didn’t even have to download it to my phone and use up valuable memory.  We all know how much memory our photos and videos are taking up on our phones so the less space I can use, the better.

Then I signed in to MiMedia on my web browser and was able to download the photo right to my desktop. From there I could edit it and share it on Facebook or upload it to this blog post!

Just like that. How easy was that?!  Now, let’s say then that I want to let the entire group of people who were on our boating trip share their videos and photos.

I can create a MiDrive for our event and invite everyone to share their videos and photos. We can even message each other and add comments to the different media. We now also have access to all the photos and videos on our desktop, tablets and phones.

MiDrive for Summer

Unlike sharing photos on social media, where often privacy and security are a concern for people, sharing through MiDrives on MiMedia is safe and secure. No one can see the media unless you invite them to.
