  1. Howdy--apologies for the glitch. Let's get this sorted. The UID and GID need to be valid users on the host OS, and need read/write access to the volume that you're bind-mounting to /ps/library. More details are here:
  2. Howdy, thanks for trying out PhotoStructure! I suspect you may be missing a bind mound for `/ps/config`. PhotoStructure v1.1 requires several bind mounts (which the template should guide you through), but more details about what's going on is here: Note that the next release will only require one bind mount, which should simplify this setup. More details here:
  3. Click "show more settings...", and click "edit" by "Temp/Scratch disk". Click "Host Path" and pick a directory your SSD (mine is set to /mnt/cache/appdata/photostructure/tmp/ ) Feel free to hop into the PhotoStructure#unraid discord room if you want more real-time help!
  4. You can browse by folder, date, camera, lens, keywords, ...
  5. It's designed for photo and video storage, and handles most image and video types (including JPEG, most RAW formats, and tons of different video formats). Truth be told, I made it to clean up my own mess. If she's using other software already, know that I've tried to make it interoperable (especially with XMP sidecars and Google Takeouts). Nextcloud provides as a folder view of your files. PhotoStructure is designed specifically to intelligently deduplicate and organize photos and videos, with instant browsing of photos and videos (by date, filesystem, type, keywords, and albums). My own library is tracking 500k+ files (I have a lot of duplicate files, and ~300k unique "assets"). Many other users have similarly sized libraries.
  6. Alternatively, I'd be happy to take over managing the template: there are several things I'd suggest changing. What's the friendly protocol for this sort of thing? (Also: I push :stable releases to :alpha and :beta tags to make sure people don't get left behind)
  7. I do have several users successfully running the beta on UnRaid: I just finished backing up everything from my FreeNAS box and am in the middle of converting it to an UnRAID box, specifically to help support y'all. I suspect the issue may be due to opened-by locks from an ungraceful shutdown, or auth issues from the new UID/GID code.
  8. @whitedwarf , thanks for sharing! I'd love to see your configuration, if you'd be willing to share:
  9. Not yet, but several beta users have brought up this issue also: Feel free to vote on that, any other items, and add your own ideas as well!
  10. Sorry about that! I've only validated those build instructions on Ubuntu and macOS. I actually changed how HEIF support is handled in the next version of PhotoStructure: you'll just need to install the libheif-examples package, which provides the heif-convert tool: (I'll add installation instructions for Unraid in the linked page soon).
  11. PhotoStructure from within docker can only access files and directories that are bind-mounted into the container, so if you want it to see your stuff, you need to add a bind mount to that stuff. I may be misunderstanding what you're asking, though?
  12. Does /mnt/user/Photos have a .nomedia file in it, perhaps? PhotoStructure respects those: If not, I'd echo my previous reply:
  13. @DuzAwe try the info tool to see if PhotoStructure is unexpectedly filtering out your directories or files. This article may help as well. If you're still stuck, email me your logs and I can take a look at what's going on.
  14. Nope, it doesn't, but you can compile in support. Note that Live Photos aren't supported yet (ironically, due to lacking video control support in Safari that I need to figure out a workaround for). Edit: The next version will have improved HEIC support. Oof, yeah, I actually just switch to tiny thumbnails (which isn't a fix, I know). I'm going to add different "views" of child tags. One will be iconic, so subdirectories with more than a handful of direct children are more comfortably navigable. That is a reasonable hope! I've actually added "browse by filesystem" to the next release, which gets you some of the way there. I've also added Album extraction (if you have Google Takeouts, or have used something that exported IPTC or XMP album tags). I think with the addition of new tags that are essentially "saved searches", you'll get the Cuba browsing experience that you deserve. Sure: set the `excludedRootTags` library setting to include "Camera" and "Lens". I'm making the navigation bar dynamically include or exclude root tags in the next version. Thanks for your feedback!
  15. Also: PhotoStructure has it's own support forum:
