PhotoPrism: Browse your life in pictures

Apache License Code Quality Test Coverage Build Status Documentation

PhotoPrism is a server-based application for browsing, organizing and sharing your personal photo collection. It makes use of the latest technologies to automatically tag and find pictures without getting in your way. Say goodbye to solutions that force you to upload your visual memories to the cloud or pay monthly fees.

What to expect

  • Clearly structured Web interface for browsing, organizing and sharing your personal photo collection.
  • Import everything without worrying about duplicates or RAW to JPEG conversion.
  • Reverse geocoding and automated tagging based on Google TensorFlow.
  • No monthly costs. No proprietary formats. No privacy concerns.

For the early birds

You are welcome to get an impression and provide early feedback. Step-by-step instructions can be found in our User Guide. Developers can skip this and move on to the Developer Guide.

All you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux and Windows. Note that we just started working on the UI and features are neither complete nor stable. Leave your email to get a release notification.

Why this has to be free software

The development of every commercial product is focused on monetization. We've built similar apps more than once and every single time the constraints of working in a profit-oriented corporate environment were an impediment. We are sure we can do better with only a fraction of the budget. Simplicity can be very powerful. Go, the programming language we're using, is a great example. It is heavily influenced by the ideas of Niklaus Wirth.

Simple, elegant solutions are more effective, but they are harder to find than complex ones, and they require more time, which we too often believe to be unaffordable. — NIKLAUS WIRTH, CACM, FEB. 1985

How to contribute

We welcome contributions of any kind. If you have a bug or an idea, read our guide before opening an issue. Issues labeled help wanted can be good (first) contributions. Let us know if you need additional information or permissions on GitHub to perform a task. There are no stupid questions.

We are open to sponsorship proposals to improve our funding while we continue working on our first release and beyond. Ideally it also enables us to offer perks for contributions and explore new ways of organizing product development.

In exchange, we would love to share our knowledge and experience with you or your team, either on-site or remote. We can also help you getting existing photo collections tagged or build an API that integrates with your infrastructure.
