  • Google Drive misplaces months' worth of customer data
    This is not for everyone, but I host my family photos myself, most recently with this: I have been doing this since 2007 (started on a different software, called "gallery". Was able to migrate from gallery2 to gallery3 and now piwigo), and so far no major issues. Advantage: I can easily share photos with family, no need for iCloud, Facebook, or indeed any service- they just need a web browser... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago

  • I created UltimateHomeServer - A K3s based all-in-one home server solution
    A couple additiona maybe?: - Piwigo great for photo management. Could be used as an alternative to Google Photos - Nexcloud for file sharing. Replacement for Google Drive. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Is there a way to create a mass photo storage system that can be accessed anywhere?
    I use on a old PC that I installed Linux on. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Organization of projects, photos and models?
    I have on my list to evaluate self-hosted image clouds Piwigo and Photoprism but they don't bridge the photogrammetry gap either. It might even be more time consuming if I have to download the assets I'm working on first. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Jack's strength of will scared the Tok'ra (7x16 Deathknell)
    I haven't used any recent Macs since they switched from Intel processors. My newest Mac is a Mini from several years ago that's running Ubuntu and serves as a Piwigo photo server. It may also run Apache, but it's been so long since I set it up that I can't remember if it runs it's own Apache or if it uses the one on my main webserver. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Haworthia as Memorial: Honoring the life and passion of u/thinkhama
    If you are a web developer interested in potentially volunteering your technical skills to assist in creating a public web database of Hama’s collection, please get in touch as well. (Currently I intend to prototype the database with a tool such as Airtable, or Slab, but I am also curious about CMS-driven gallery tools Piwigo.). Source: over 1 year ago
  • Portfolio and Behance question
    This is correct. If you want to roll your own solution, take a look at something like Piwigo. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Why does immich create a new file structure?
    Piwigo lets you use the file structure. Use the synchronise option to import the file structure as albums, then you can create virtual albums (associate to album feature) and tags. Https:// Source: over 1 year ago

    I looked around for ages for something with the ability to import images from an existing file structure and the best thing I could find was Piwigo. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Google Photos alternative with (good) facial recognition?
    PyWigo doesn't seem to have facial recognition. Doesn't look great, IMO. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Baby photos
    In that case, cloud services like Nextcloud(8gb), Filen(10gb), and Image only services like, , Photoprism , Piwigo are a no-brainer. (all of them are listed at Source: almost 2 years ago
  • What do I need to know before publishing a website portfolio?
    I use the open source photo management software called Piwigo. I use to use Flickr because that is where the majority of my photos are right now and I didn't want anything fancy. But with Flickr closing down soon (unless you but a premium package) I started looking for something that was similar in appearance. Piwigo has been around for more than a decade only I just learned about it now. You can configure... Source: about 2 years ago
  • A list of alternatives to Google products. Privacy tips, tricks, and links
    I've been looking myself. What I have in my notes as the best option so far is tied between: - PhotoPrism - - Piwigo - PhotoPrism seems a lot more polished and has some face/location tagging that sounds useful (I make frequent use of the search feature in Google Photos and will likely miss that feature the most). While both have their own upload system internally,... - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Files – Single-file photo gallery and file manager
    Two more noteworthy alternatives that focus on photo gallery: * * I’m using the first one as personal album and it works very well, including things like infinite scroll and link-based album sharing. The latter is more sophisticated and has a native accompanying app but I found pigallery easier to work with. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Photo ordering software for a photographer
    Piwigo with extensions may have at least some of these features. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Google photos alternative
    PhotoPrism is a good option something you've mentioned above in your OP, along with NextCloud Photos (I've never used this). Piwigo, Lychee, and of course Synology Photos is pretty popular. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Managing LOTS of Image and Video Files Efficiently? Program Suggestions
    Https:// is pretty solid, and decently fast on fast hardware. You can tag, search, etc. But of course there's still tons of heavy lifting to sort it all. Source: almost 3 years ago
