PhotoPrism: Browse Your Life in Pictures

License: AGPL Build Status GitHub contributors Documentation Community Chat GitHub Discussions Twitter

PhotoPrism® is an AI-powered app for browsing, organizing & sharing your photo collection. It makes use of the latest technologies to tag and find pictures automatically without getting in your way. You can run it at home, on a private server, or in the cloud.

To get a first impression, you're welcome to play with our public demo at

Feature Overview

Getting Started

Step-by-step installation instructions for our self-hosted community edition can be found on - all you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.

Our latest release not only includes facial recognition, it also comes as a single multi-arch image for AMD64, ARM64, and ARMv7. That means you don't need to pull from different Docker repositories anymore. We recommend updating your existing docker-compose.yml config based on our examples.

Back us on Patreon or GitHub Sponsors

Your continued support helps us provide services like world maps and develop new features. GitHub now also offers one-time donations. You're welcome to contact us for other options.

Also, please leave a star on GitHub if you like this project. It provides additional motivation to keep going.

Thank you very much! 💜


Our vision is to provide the most user- and privacy-friendly solution to keep your pictures organized and accessible. The roadmap shows what tasks are in progress, what needs testing, and which features are going to be implemented next.

Please give ideas you like a thumbs-up 👍 , so that we know what is most popular. You are welcome to submit specific feature requests via GitHub Issues if you have verified that no similar idea or todo already exists.

Ideas endorsed by silver, gold and platinum sponsors receive a golden label and will be prioritized.


Follow us on Twitter or join our Community Chat to get regular updates, connect with other users, and discuss your ideas. Don't be afraid to ask silly questions.

Getting Support

Please use GitHub Issues only to report clearly identified bugs to us. If you are not sure, first use GitHub Discussions or ask in our Community Chat. Sponsors receive direct technical support via email.

When reporting a problem, please include the version you are using and information about your environment such as browser, operating system, installed memory, and processor type.


We welcome contributions of any kind, including bug reports, testing, writing documentation, tutorials, blog posts, and pull requests.

The Developer Guide contains all information necessary to get you started. Issues labeled help wanted / easy can be good (first) contributions.

Because we want to create the best possible product for our users, we have a set of guidelines to ensure that all source code submissions are acceptable. They include step-by-step instructions for submitting new features, bug fixes, and documentation improvements.

Reviewing, testing and finally merging pull requests requires significant resources on our side. If it's not just a small fix, it can take several months.
