    Synology Photos app ONLY not accepting imported SSL Cert?

    Hi there, So I had an earlier issue that my connection to Synology Photos was super slow locally. This was because I was using an external address to access the server instead of an internal IP, but in terms of keeping the connection the same for the mobile app, it was required for me to keep...

    Photos Question regarding DS Photos

    I have set this up and log in is via the local IP address, e.g. etc. I have hopefully correctly set a firewall route that only allows access to the NAS on the LAN. So, my question is this, please, I cannot seem to find the answer, when not on the local network, so not on Wifi or...

    Change space and view after login to Synology Photos

    Just wondering if this is happening only to me. When I log in to Synology Photos I get the Shared space page: After that, I need to manually switch to Personal space. And on top of it, I get the folder view although my last setting was timeline view (so switch it manually again, every time):

    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.

    Synology Photos, ghost files, cache, permissions and indexing

    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?
