PhotoPrism® is a server-based application for browsing, organizing and sharing your personal photo collection. It makes use of the latest technologies to automatically tag and find pictures without getting in your way. Say goodbye to solutions that force you to upload your visual memories to the cloud!

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

Runs Everywhere

Our clearly structured user interface makes browsing and organizing your personal photo collection as easy as it should be — whether it’s on a phone, tablet, or desktop computer. PhotoPrism feels like a native app and, of course, you can also add it to your home screen.

Smart Search

PhotoPrism automatically classifies your pictures using a pre-trained Google TensorFlow model. Browse and filter your library by Date, Location, Camera, Lens, Folder, Label, Color, Quality, Keywords, and many more criteria. Pictures marked as private, archived, or under review won't show up in search results to reduce the noise.

Maps & Places

The app 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 recently 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.


Link Sharing

Share albums with your friends and family. You may create multiple links for each album, and optionally set an expiry date.

Remote Access

WebDAV clients, like Microsoft’s Windows Explorer or Apple's Finder, can connect directly to PhotoPrism. This mounts the originals folder as a network drive and enables you to open, edit, and delete files from your computer or phone as if they were local. You may easily sync your pictures with Nextcloud as well.

Metadata Compatibility

PhotoPrism intelligently merges Exif and XMP metadata found in photo, video, and sidecar files. Supported fields include Title, Description, Date, Location, Camera, Lens, ISO, F Number, Exposure, Focal Length, Subject, Artist, Keywords, and Copyright.


Duplicate Detection

Don't worry about duplicates: PhotoPrism automatically detects and skips them while indexing. Related files that belong to the same picture may be stacked automatically, either based on their file names, time and location, or unique image id.

RAW Image Support

PhotoPrism may automatically convert RAW image files to JPEG so that they can be displayed in a Web browser. We aim at providing excellent support for all RAW formats, independent of camera brand and model. In addition, PhotoPrism supports TIFF, PNG, BMP, and GIF files. Please let us know when there is an issue with a specific device or file format.

What's coming next?

Our vision is to provide the most user-friendly solution for browsing, organizing and sharing your personal photo collection. The roadmap shows what tasks are in progress, and which feature requests are going to be implemented next. Please give ideas you like a thumbs-up, so that we know what is most popular. Ideas backed by one or more eligible sponsors will be prioritized as well.
