I'm looking for photo transfer/management apps to replace my reliance on Google Photos. I tried Shoebox but it's not quite doing it for me as I can't easily share images from it. PhotoSync likewise is certainly doing what it's intended to, but it won't replace my need entirely. I don't mind using a couple apps - for exaple, photosync for the syncing bit and something else for organizing.

What I want is to be able to:
- back up photos from my phone so I can clear space
(This can be cloud based or to my pc)
- share photos with either a direct hotlink, copying the image, or with easy access to the file directory
- organise photos into albums or groups

Any recommendations? @switchingsocial I'd welcome your thoughts or boosts :3

@Rai @switchingsocial

I've had a decent experience with #nextcloud. It runs kind of slow on a #raspberrypi and you don't get the machine learning recognition of faces and images that come with Google, but the app on my smartphone syncs easily.

"you don't get the machine learning recognition of faces and images that come with Google"

Maybe it is a good thing that Nextcloud doesn't do this?

Heck knows what Google does with that kind of data :blobastonished:

@switchingsocial @Argus @Rai Can I introduce you to OpenCV? Those algorithms can also be self-hosted.

Case in point, here's a Nextcloud app that does that: github.com/matiasdelellis/face
