    AI-Powered Photos App for the Decentralized Web 🌈💎✨

    I’m pretty happy with so far. It’s self hosted, has features I really wanted such as maps and face recognition for grouping photos. Only issue is the lack of a mobile app for viewing photos but their mobile web version is not that bad. I’m using an app they suggested to sync my photos from ios and have photoprism automatically import and process the new photos. Do try it out.

  • photos-app

    Mobile apps for ente Photos

    Super happy with Folks at ente are amazing.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • gphotos-sync

    Google Photos and Albums backup with Google Photos Library API

    Technically there is no way for a lossless synchronization/export out of Google Photos apart from using Google Takeout to the best of my knowledge.

    For reference check the best effort project and the "Known Issues with Google API" section.
