Swipe Up to Skip
Skipping an image means it's not uploaded/saved to your Backstory account.
The original image on your phone is not modified in any way.
When in doubt, skip! To finally enjoy your memories, cut down thousands of images into a manageable number.
Organizing your images is now easy. Get Backstory!
Tap to Save
After tapping an image, a screen appears allowing you to tag it, change sharing settings, and add a caption. These steps are optional.
When you save a photo or video, a full-resolution copy of the image is uploaded to your account and becomes viewable in your memories.
The original image on your phone is not touched and remains on your phone.
The Bulk Organize feature allows you to select multiple images and apply the same changes to all of them at once.
Skip multiple images. Save multiple images. Apply the same tags to multiple images.
You've taken thousands of photos and videos, only save the special ones to cut that number down.
The better you do removing excess images, the better Backstory will do when creating your Memories.
Skip images, a lot! Your future self will thank you.
