Foss image browser


Hi gang,

I’m looking for a image browser for accessing my nearly two decades of digital photographs stored on my home server.

I’ve tried a few “gallery” type apps but they all rely on uploading images, rather than working with an existing collection.

I’ve been using Photoshow but it really struggles with the size of my collection.

Should support desktop and mobile browsers.

If you are looking for a in browser type viewer, I have been using pigallery2.

It gets images from a directory structure, so you can just pass it a folder, and it will auto populate and does not need to move anything. It does need a database, but only for thumbnails and whatnot.



That’s perfect! Got the docker image running now, so much faster than photoshow, and it looks a lot nicer.

Thanks for the tip.
