We’ve made a few improvements across both the iOS and the web app, many of them features that our users have been asking for! Here’s a breakdown of the changes – we think you’ll really enjoy them!
No More Duplicates for Easier Management
Loom will now hide duplicates from your Timeline, so you can get a clean view of your entire photo and video collection, without having to wade through multiple copies of the same photo.
To make managing your library easy, Loom will display your duplicates when you enter ‘Select mode’ (either by tapping ‘Select’ at the upper-right corner, or by tapping-and-holding a photo), indicating clearly which photos are duplicates so that you can move, delete, copy or paste them across albums without confusion. It will hide them again when you exit ‘Select mode’ by pressing ‘Cancel’ in the upper-right corner again.
Hiding Albums from Timeline
You can now hide albums from your Timeline, too. Which is great for albums that are made up of just ‘photo notes’ such as screenshots or personal photos. Just hide them from your Timeline, and you’ll have a beautiful Timeline that you can always share with friends and family.
Swipe-to-select for your Timeline
When you enter ‘Select mode,’ you’ll also be able to swipe-to-select photos, just like you can within albums! So you can copy, move, delete, or send groups of photos with ease.
Know Where Your Photos Are
In addition, while you are in ‘Select mode,’ you can tap-and-hold a photo to get a quick preview of it, temporarily enlarging it and displaying which album or albums it belongs to, until you let go.
There you have it! We hope you enjoy the new features! And also, in case you were wondering: Loom only counts photos once toward your total storage amount. So if you have one photo stored in three different albums, or if you upload two of the exact same photo from two different sources, for example, that just counts as one photo. And as always, Loom stores your photos in their original resolution and format, while simultaneously creating smaller, optimized versions for ease-of-access and speed. Loom doesn’t count these optimized versions toward your storage, either!
