    When I upload a folder to Synology Photos using drag and drop, 95% of the time, the app auto sorts these folders into a Year/month folder format. This has saved me a ton of time, and I LOVE this feature and the app as a whole. Occasionally it hangs up while loading, so i have to babysit the...

    Synology Photos Enable Share Link is being redirected

    My share links from Synology Photos are redirecting to an IP address that I don't recognize, looks like it belongs to a Fios router. I copy the link, set it to Anyone Can Download but the link ends up in a different IP address. I haven't had this problem prior to the change to Synology Photos.
