PhotoPrism: Browse your life in pictures¶
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.
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.
