LibrePhotos: Manage your Photos with AI

LibrePhotos: Manage your Photos with AI

LibrePhotos is a free web-based self-hosted photo manager app that enables you to organize your photos, upload raw images, backup them, and share them with your friends, publicly or with LibrePhotos users.

It also uses a face detection and face classification libraries that auto-discover portrait images and faces.

If the photo contains a geolocation, LibrePhoto can easily extract the location and perform a reverse geocoding using the Mapbox library that allows your first 50.000 geocode for free every month.

You can use LibrePhoto on any machine if you install it using Docker/ Docker Compose. More good news for RaspberryPi nerds is that LibrePhoto is officially supported on Raspberry Pi with an official image.
