MyHeritage Products Introducing the New and Improved MyHeritage Photo Gallery By Esther June 29, 2016 Share Share Copy Link MyHeritage is the perfect place for preserving your family memories. As of this week, storing your entire library of family photos with MyHeritage just got easier and more enjoyable. We have just completed updating the photos section on MyHeritage with a brand new look and improved functionality. All your photos, videos and audio files are now consolidated in a single, well-organized view. New photos section (click to zoom) To see the new and updated photos section, simply sign in to MyHeritage and click “Photos” in the top navigation of your family site. The first thing you’ll notice is the interface redesign. The new photos section is attractive and fun to browse through. Some of the biggest changes, however, are behind the scenes: we’ve used the latest web technologies to make the new photos page incredibly fast. Whether you have hundreds of photos or many thousands, you’ll be delighted to see how quickly they load and how easy it is to browse through them. Your pictures and videos are sorted by the date added to your site; the most recently added items are at the top. Move the mouse over any photo to see more information, including title, date and place. On the left, filter photos by tagged people or by album. Photo filtering options (click to zoom) Filter by person Under People, drill down further to list all people in your family tree who are tagged in photos. Clicking on an individual in the list will display all the photos that they are tagged in and moving the mouse over their name at the top of the screen will provide more information — and allow you to view the person in the family tree, see his/her profile, or search for historical records. Click to zoom Clicking on a person will show you all the photos that they are tagged in. Filter by person (click to zoom) At the bottom of the People list, you will find your media items that have not yet been tagged. Click on this entry to quickly tag them. Photos that are not yet tagged (click to zoom) Actions on photos Click the top right checkbox on each photo to select one or more photos. Then choose to download the selected photo(s), or go to “More Options” to add the selected photos to an album, or to delete them. More options (click to zoom) In the top right of the Photos page, you can search for media items or upload photos into new or existing albums. Search and Upload options In the next releases, we plan to enhance photo search and single photo view, completing the revamped photo experience on your MyHeritage family site. Photos and other media enhance your family tree and help bring your family history to life. We invite you to visit the redesigned photos section and add pictures and videos, tag them and organize them into albums, and share them with your loved ones. Enjoy!
