Sync files with other Apps

In settings you can connect your PhotoPrism instance to other services with WebDAV support, such as other PhotoPrism instances, Nextcloud or ownCloud.

When syncing, your files are uploaded or downloaded to/from another service, so your files are duplicated.

If you want PhotoPrism to read from the same folder as another service, without making copies, you can simply mount this folder as PhotoPrism's originals directory.
