  • Piwigo

    Manage your photos with Piwigo, a full featured open source photo gallery application for the web. Star us on Github! More than 200 plugins and themes available. Join us and contribute!

    I use https://piwigo.org/ hosted on a cheap web shared server that I am using for a few websites already. I have the photos backed up locally as well. I suppose you could run your own webserver from home (violates most ISPs TOS) if you need a huge amount of space.

  • Photonix

    A modern, web-based photo management server. Run it on your home server and it will let you find the right photo from your collection on any device. Smart filtering is made possible by object recognition, face recognition, location awareness, color analysis and other ML algorithms.

    I work on one of these projects called Photonix which has Ai auto-tagging, location awareness, RAW processing and we just launched our first apps for Android and iOS. We're working on adding our own syncing to the mobile apps but you could also use something like NextCloud or Syncthing for the actual uploading.
