For FreeBSD / FreeNAS users, an unofficial PhotoPrism port is available.

The port will compile and install libtensorflow 1.15.2 and build photoprism from source on FreeBSD.

1. Clone or download the port:

git clone

2. Build TensorFlow and PhotoPrism from source, then install:

cd photoprism-freebsd-port
make config
make && make install

When running the make config command, a CPU feature options dialog will be presented, and the default option is NONE.

3. Add entries to rc.conf:


You can add more command line parameters into photoprism_flags="" in the rc.conf

photoprism config shows all config parameters.

4. Start the service:

service photoprism start
