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!

Key Features

  • Our intuitive Web UI makes browsing and organizing your photo collection as easy as it should be — whether it’s on a phone, tablet, or desktop computer
  • Index all your photos and videos without worrying about duplicates, RAW to JPEG conversion, or video transcoding
  • Includes four high-resolution world maps to see where you've been, and for rediscovering long-forgotten shots
  • Enjoy privacy-preserving face detection and recognition 💎
  • Automatic image classification based on Google TensorFlow – in addition, PhotoPrism detects many other properties such as colors, chroma, luminance, quality, panoramic projection, and location type
  • Use PhotoSync to securely backup iOS and Android mobile devices in the background
  • 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
  • Because PhotoPrism is built as a Progressive Web App, it provides a native app-like experience, and you can install it on your home screen without struggling with compatibility issues

Getting Started

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

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.


This open-source project is made possible thanks to our sponsors. If you enjoy using PhotoPrism, please consider backing us on Patreon or GitHub Sponsors — especially if you have feature requests or need help with using our software.
