User Guide

Step-by-step installation instructions for our self-hosted community edition can be found in Getting Started. All you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.

Progressive Web App

When setup is complete, you can start indexing your pictures. Be patient, this may take a while depending on your server hardware and how many files you have.

Your photos and videos will successively become visible in search results and other parts of the user interface. The counts in the navigation are constantly updated, so you can follow the progress.

In case some of your pictures are still missing after indexing has been completed, they might be in Review due to low quality or incomplete metadata. You can turn this and other features off in Settings, depending on your specific use case.
