PhotoPrism: Personal Photo Management powered by Go, TensorFlow & Vuetify

PhotoPrism is a server-based application for browsing, organizing and sharing your personal photo collection. It makes use of the latest technologies to automatically tag and find pictures without getting in your way. Say goodbye to solutions that force you to upload your visual memories to the cloud or pay monthly fees.

We've recently improved our search and implemented maps based on Leaflet / OpenStreetMap. Try for yourself:

Why this has to be free software

The development of every commercial product is focused on monetization.
We've built similar apps more than once and every single time the constraints of working in a profit-oriented corporate environment were an impediment.

We are sure we can do better with only a fraction of the budget. Simplicity - the art of maximizing the amount of work not done - can be very powerful. Go itself is a great example.

Our long-term goal is to become an open platform for machine learning research based on real-world photo collections.
