PhotoPrism: Browse Your Life in Pictures

License: AGPL Code Quality Build Status GitHub contributors Documentation Community Chat Twitter

PhotoPrism® is a privately hosted app for browsing, organizing, and sharing your photo collection. It makes use of the latest technologies to tag and find pictures automatically without getting in your way. Say goodbye to uploading your visual memories to the cloud!

To get a first impression, you're welcome to play with our public demo at demo.photoprism.org.

Key Features

  • Our intuitive user interface makes browsing and organizing your photo collection as easy as it should be — whether it’s on a phone, tablet, or desktop computer.
  • Index everything without worrying about duplicates or RAW to JPEG conversion.
  • Privacy-preserving face detection and recognition.
  • Automatic image classification based on Google TensorFlow. In addition, our indexer detects colors, chroma, luminance, quality, panoramic projection, location type, and many other properties.
  • Includes four high-resolution world maps to see where you've been, and for rediscovering long-forgotten shots.
  • WebDAV clients, like Microsoft’s Windows Explorer or Apple's Finder, may connect directly to PhotoPrism so that you to can open, edit, and delete files from your computer or phone as if they were local. You may easily sync your pictures with PhotoSync as well.
  • Because PhotoPrism is built as a progressive web app, it provides a native app-like experience, and you may install it on your home screen. There's also a community-maintained native app in development.

Getting Started

Step-by-step installation instructions for our self-hosted community edition can be found on docs.photoprism.org - all you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.

New Release 🌈

The latest release not only includes facial recognition, it also comes as a single multi-arch image for AMD64, ARM64, and ARMv7. That means you don't need to pull from different Docker repositories anymore. We recommend updating your existing docker-compose.yml config based on our examples.


Our vision is to provide the most user-friendly solution for browsing, organizing, and sharing your photo collection. The roadmap shows what tasks are in progress, what needs testing, and which feature requests are going to be implemented next.
