Step-by-step installation instructions for our self-hosted community edition can be found in Getting Started. All you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows. PhotoPrism also runs on DigitalOcean, Raspberry Pi, FreeBSD, and many NAS devices.
When setup is complete, you can start indexing your pictures. Be patient, this may take a while depending on your server hardware and how many files you have.
In case some of your pictures are still missing after indexing has been completed, they might be in Review due to low quality or incomplete metadata. You can turn this and other features off in Settings, depending on your specific use case.
