    It won't cover you uses right now probably, but I'd be interested in how my photofield app fares on the 2tb dataset too. You can mount your photos as a read only volume, so it's low risk to try it out. I'm planning to add some of the features you mentioned eventually, but feel free to open feature requests if you are interested!

    Added issue #34 for RAW file support. Do you happen to have some .CR2 samples you could share with me? I don't often shoot in RAW, so I'm interested in how you would expect it to work, is this something that is usually configurable as I presume RAWs can be processed in many ways? Or is it enough to have a "good enough" default just so that you know what file it is?

    For what it's worth, I added issue #23 in the repo on this, so subscribe there if you're interested. 😊

    Hey, sorry, it got a little buried among others, but I got them, thanks! Opened issue #30 for it.

    Since then I've slowly refactored parts of it to make it even faster and easier to work with: added support for embedded jpeg thumbnails, made it load faster than Google Photos, added support for collections of millions of photos+, and replaced OpenSeadragon with OpenLayers to make it work with slow browsers (e.g. on Smart TVs), among others.

    Thanks and good idea! Added it as issue #31.

    Yeah that's definitely rough on mobile. On PC you can use left/right arrow keys. Added it as part of issue #26, thanks!
