    Project mention: Ask HN: What's your approach to personal data archiving and backups? | | 2021-09-13

    I wrote this tool to normalize folder and file names <>.

    I wrote about the rest of the system in the following posts.





  • Damselfly

    Damselfly is a server-based Photograph Management app. The goal of Damselfly is to index an extremely large collection of images, and allow easy search and retrieval of those images, using metadata such as the IPTC keyword tags, as well as the folder and file names. Damselfly includes support for object/face detection, and face-recognition.

    Project mention: Is there a free at tool for object recognizing on images? Would like to build a plug-in for our media library that tags images with keywords when uploaded | | 2022-08-04

    Feel free to look at mine:

  • libjxl

    JPEG XL image format reference implementation

    Project mention: Ways to progressively load JPEG XLs (.JXL's) | | 2022-08-11

    I think to match the speed you would need parallel decoding (multi-threaded decoding) which is not really possible with JPEG but seems to be with JXL .

  • filmulator-gui

    Filmulator --- Simplified raw editing with the power of film

    Project mention: Darktable 4.0.0 Released | | 2022-07-02

    > I don't want to do elaborate stuff like working with masks / applying filters to sections of the photo only. Only thing I usually do is increase saturation, and, rarely, brightness/aperture.

    I don't think you're the intended audience for darktable. Try


    An application and plugin to remotely control Lightroom with a MIDI controller

    Project mention: LPT: You can use an iPad or any other touch device to control Lightroom using Midi2LR (How to use Touch OSC on tablet/iPad to control Lightroom) | | 2022-07-14

    More info for troubleshooting or general info here

  • splash-cli

    A simple, command line tool to download Unsplash wallpapers. It’s not intended to be anything particularly fancy — it just works.

  • Resizer

    An image resizing library for Android (by hkk595)

  • little-backup-box

    Software that turns a single-board computer into a versatile and pocketable backup appliance

    Project mention: How to use a RP for file transfers? | | 2022-02-01
  • PhotonCamera

    Android Camera that uses Enhanced image processing

    Project mention: Android 12 vs. LOS 18 (or 19)? | | 2022-03-10

    Google Camera - most people suck it up and use GCam. The normal AOSP camera looks horrid. It sucks, but there's few other options available. Maybe try Photon if it annoys you?

  • photoflare

    Quick, simple but powerful Cross Platform image editor.

    Project mention: Simple image editor | | 2021-12-09
  • motioncam

    Motion Cam is a camera application for Android that replaces the entire camera pipeline. It consumes RAW images and uses computational photography to combine multiple images to reduce noise.

    Project mention: Done with miui eu forever | | 2022-07-22

    It's a really demanding app. Saves each frame as raw/dng files, then you use a computer to process the raw files. There's a basic program for windows and mac, but for better results you should use a video editing program.

  • rclip

    AI-Powered Command-Line Photo Search Tool

    Project mention: Natural text to image search(without captions), using CLIP model. Notebook in comment. | | 2022-05-04

    Indexing was done with this other guy's github project. It was convenient because it automatically handles things like "continue where it left off".

    Fast, cross-platform Node.js access to ExifTool

  • pi-timelapse

    Time-lapse app for Raspberry Pi computers.
