    Synology Photos: force re-indexing?

    I've just moved nearly all my photos to Photos and have culled thru all the Facial Recognition/People to properly name/tag them etc. I do have incorrect time/date stamps on a lot of my photos (most of these were originally scanned in by my parents). That said, I've gone in and tweaked the...

    Synology photos is SLOW and buggy

    SLOW I use the DS918+ model, not the slowest of them all, and yet Synology Photos is SLOW AS HELL Moving to the next photo by clicking "right" arrow on a laptop keyboard is SLOW. I wait 2-5 seconds per image. What am I waiting for? Safari keeps complaining that "this application uses too much...

    Synology Photos, ghost files, cache, permissions and indexing

    Hi. I am a long time happy user of Photo Station. I liked the control it gave me over my users and all our pictures. I am used to organize and manipulate files via generic file browsers and File Station. I get uncomfortable whenever software tries to outsmart me and organize stuff behind my...

    Bulk Rotate? Auto Rotate Not Working

    Wondering if there's a way to bulk rotate photos. The auto rotate doesn't seem to be working very well for me, and I don't really want to have to do two-clicks to rotate per photo if I can avoid it. Any suggestions?

    Synology Photos, HEVC Playback not supported - solution!

    Hi everyone! Like several others I've been frustrated by the lack of support for HEVC video playback in Synology Photos (i.e. for photo/video libraries 'copied' into Synology Photos rather than uploaded via the mobile app) I decided to solve this - I've made a script that hunts through...

    Photos How to upload to existing folder in /photo?

    I do use iphone and photos. Upload seems to be limited to folders that are like "photoLibrary" /yyyy/mm format. Presumably this then should be shared storage, not in personal storage, where the same thing happens in the home folder. I cannot find a way to sent the upload to a folder that the...

    Hello everyone! Due to high load, I have application portals set up for most of the apps. On DSM 7.0 I had to configure the application portal for Synology Photos as the one for Moments disappeared, but Synology decided to make something weird - Instead of going to the log-in page of the...

    Synology Photos slow to load

    I have just updated to DMS 7 and have now got to use Synology Photos. I have a DS220j and connected to PC via ethernet cable but can take 3-4 minutes to load. Moments wasn't that good but this is worse. In fact it loads quicker using the app on my iPad. Is this normal?

    Dates are not Date Taken, but are EXIF Date and Time (original/digitized)

    When Synology Photos imports photo files, it categorizes them by Year and Month. This should be done by Date Taken, but instead it is appears to be by Date and Time (original or digitized). If this is missing, they are categorized as year 1970 and month 01. Trying to fix this by selecting the...
