I could not find a truly dark theme (light on dark), but I think it would be nice to have one.

Moonlight and Onyx are our darkest themes currently. Many of our UI elements invert their contrast when selected. That makes it difficult to just use dark colors. We also have to change this logic, otherwise you have a black font on black background. All in all, this wasn't easy and important enough to delay our release. Might do this later though, when there is time and funding.

That's how PhotoPrism looks in a dark desktop environment. The Onyx theme is pretty much dark and grey already, nothing that burns your eyes. Most "bright" screen area is covered by pictures. Those are not under our control... We've intentionally kept the UI grey to avoid bias in terms of darkness, brightness, or colors (unless you've chosen to use the Raspberry theme).

Thanks for your efforts!

My idea was to have a theme that is really dark around the photos, as that often makes them look better. But I agree that it's not an important topic :)

In fact, I've seen screenshots of users who had it all dark... maybe they've applied a patch locally and don't use other themes to avoid contrast issues (as mentioned above).

It would be awesome to have a theme that rely on the user's settings to enable dark mode automatically at night, see prefers-color-scheme. It could be added to current themes.

@lastzero Feedback on the Shadow theme:

  1. The initial loading screen is white and, ideally, would match the background of the chosen theme to avoid the bright white flash.
  2. Darker! Please consider a "Night" theme with a nearly black background for a slick darkroom vibe.

Did you try the Vanta theme yet?

@lastzero Whups! I somehow completely missed the switch to a multi-arch image and my instance hasn't updated in a while now. 😳 Vanta is great, and the loading screen flash is solved. Thanks for all the hard work! <3

Hey,
could we maybe get a photoprism dracula color theme?
Or would this be doable if I become a higher level sponsor? (I have read that you could then put something on the feature request list, if this would be doable and feasible I would check out that option as I am currently only a „small“ sponsor)
