PhotoPrism® is an AI-Powered Photos App for the Decentralized Web. It makes use of the latest technologies to tag and find pictures automatically without getting in your way. You can run it at home, on a private server, or in the cloud.
To get a first impression, you are welcome to play with our public demo. Be careful not to upload any private pictures.
Our mission is to provide the most user- and privacy-friendly solution to keep your pictures organized and accessible. PhotoPrism was designed from the ground up to run wherever you need it, without compromising freedom, privacy, or functionality:
Because we are 100% self-funded and independent, we can promise you that we will never sell your data and that we will always be transparent about our software and services. Your data will also never be shared with Google, Amazon, Facebook, or Apple unless you intentionally upload files to one of their services. 🔒
Step-by-step installation instructions for our self-hosted community edition can be found on docs.photoprism.app - all you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.
The stable version and development preview have been built into a single multi-arch image for 64-bit AMD, Intel, and ARM processors. That means, Raspberry Pi 3 / 4 owners can pull from the same repository, enjoy the exact same functionality, and can follow the regular installation instructions after going through a short list of requirements.
Existing users are advised to update their
docker-compose.yml config based on our examples
available at dl.photoprism.app/docker.
We encourage all of our users to become a sponsor, as this allows us to make more features available to the public and remain independent.
Sponsors enjoy additional features, including access to interactive world maps, and can join our private chat room to connect with our team and other sponsors. We currently have the following sponsorship options:
Visit docs.photoprism.app/user-guide to learn how to sync, organize, and share your pictures. If you need help installing our software at home, you can join us on Reddit, ask in our Community Chat, or post your question in GitHub Discussions.
Common problems can be quickly diagnosed and solved using the Troubleshooting Checklists in Getting Started. Eligible sponsors are also welcome to email us for technical support and personalized advice.
Our Project Roadmap shows what tasks are in progress and what features will be implemented next. You are invited to give ideas you like a thumbs-up, so we know what's most popular.
Be aware that we have a zero-bug policy and do our best to help users when they need support or have other questions. This comes at a price though, as we can't give exact release dates for new features. Our team receives many more requests than can be implemented, so we want to emphasize that we are in no way obligated to implement the features, improvements, or other changes you request. We do, however, appreciate your feedback and carefully consider all requests.
Because sustained funding is key to releasing new features in a timely manner, we encourage you to support our mission by signing up as a sponsor or purchasing a commercial license. Ultimately, that's what's best for the product and the community.
We kindly ask you not to report bugs via GitHub Issues unless you are certain to have found a fully reproducible and previously unreported issue that must be fixed directly in the app. Thank you for your careful consideration!
Follow us on Twitter and join the Community Chat to get regular updates, connect with other users, and discuss your ideas. Our Code of Conduct explains the "dos and don’ts" when interacting with other community members.
Feel free to contact us at [email protected] with anything that is on your mind. We appreciate your feedback! Due to the high volume of emails we receive, our team may be unable to get back to you immediately. We do our best to respond within five business days or less.
We welcome contributions of any kind, including blog posts, tutorials, testing, writing documentation, and pull requests. Our Developer Guide contains all the information necessary for you to get started.
