I would like to replace Google Photos with something self-hosted.

Use case is syncing photos from smart phones and building albums to share with the family.

Albums should hold references to the original image as to not clogg up storage space with unnecessary copies. Albums should be editable by multiple persons.

Nextcloud and Owncloud do not live up to their promise. The respective photo app is just a fancy viewer for the files app.

Any alternative would be appreciated.

Asking @downey for expertise:
Imagine you want to know about the World Wide Web Consortium -
you visit the page "w3.org" for the first time and imagine you are not an expert.
You want to know where to get updates and scroll down the footer.
Please do not click the giant blue bird. Just tell me if that is fair.

hints:
• World Wide Web Consortium is the Thing with 0 posts and 0 info in mastodon
• ActivityPub is the w3c recommendation
• the web is NOT twitter

UK Version
Having always found it a bit intrusive when someone came into the office and shouted "Good morning" or similar, I rarely or unwillingly did so - On Mastodon and elsewhere on the social web, numerous people wish (me) a "Good morning" etc.
Should I politely shout that to everyone too?

DE-Version
Nachdem ich es immer als etwas aufdringlich empfunden habe, wenn jemand ins Büro kam und "Guten Morgen" o.ä. gerufen hat, habe ich das selten bzw. ungern gemacht - Auf Mastodon und anderswo im Social Web wünschen (mir) zahlreiche Menschen einen "Guten Morgen" etc.
Soll ich das höflicherweise auch allen zurufen?

Unfortunately, it looks suboptimal to find a way that suits my workflow and requirements. For others it may look completely different.

That's why this is not(!) a criticism - the software/apps/servers are partly under development and I fully understand the challenges in the for transferring data between different systems and applications - it's just an informative hint.

I started writing the first thread about planetary habitability, but quickly realized you all need some background on how we *find* planets first!

So sorry to everyone who voted for habitability, but we’re doing HOW TO FIND AN EXOPLANET 🔭 today!

I promise this will make the habitability thread next week make even more sense (1/)
