How can I be sure my photos are safe?
We use Amazon S3 storage services for all accounts on Yogile, safely securing your photos in the cloud. For added safety, paid accounts also receive a second backup in Backblaze B2, through this, we can restore photos that you accidentally delete from your account.
What makes us different from other photo storage services?
Our main focus has always been ease-of-use. People contributing photos to your albums don’t need to create an account to upload their shots, making it easy for your friends and family to contribute their favorite moments without any hassle. Other photo services often make the process for adding photos so complex, your friends may avoid adding their photos just to avoid the trouble. With Yogile, you also retain ownership of all of your photos and they are kept in their original resolution.
How can I be sure that this platform will be kept up and running?
We are an independent and profitable company, not swayed by outside investors or external parties. We’ve been running Yogile for over 10 years and have stream-lined our operations to provide the best service possible. You can be sure that Yogile will be around to keep your photos safe for the long haul.
Uploading on my iPhone or iOS device is slow, what can I do?
Go to 'Settings' on your iPhone, and tap 'Camera'. Then tap 'Formats' and change from 'High Efficiency' to 'Most Compatible'. Now all your photos will be uploaded as JPG, which is more performant and more compatible with other devices, than when using Apple's HEIC image format.Click here to upgrade
