Synology Moments User Setup is pretty straight forward compared to Synology DS Photo.
- Install the package Synology Moments
- Enable user specific access from the administrator user account in DiskStation Manager
- Download, install, and configure Moments app from app store.
- Insert Photo
- Make sure you purge your years of mobile phone photos of redundant and unnecessary pictures before backing up. This is actually really quick procedure on the iPhoto “photos” and Google’s Photo app because you can drag your thumb over several photo to mark for deletion. I organized two years worth of photos in less than 20 minutes.

Synology Moments User Setup Summary
Synology Moments user setup is hands down way easier to setup and use than DS Photo. I’m not sure why all the crummy app reviews. I will continue to play around with this app and update this post as things evolve.
