Places

At the bottom of the General settings tab, you may choose your preferred map style and animation length for Places. PhotoPrism includes four high-resolution world maps to see where you've been, and for rediscovering long-forgotten shots.

To enhance your photos with location data such as state, city and category, we've also launched our own geo-information service based on OpenStreetMap. A future release will additionally provide public events' data, so that albums of popular music festivals, or sports gatherings, can be created automatically.
