Hey I am looking for some input on the best way to load my 41,000 photos into Synology Photos.

I have tried to upload/import through the web browser but this only allows me to select 5000 photos at a time and after waiting for 45mins not one photo has been uploaded.

I am wondering if there is a better way? Would I be able to just copy the pictures into the working Photos directory on the Synology? If this is a possibility then I also have another question, do the pictures go into the folder home/photos or homes/UserAccount/photos ?

If anyone has a faster way to import these photos it would be greatly appreciated if you could share your experience.

Thanks
 
just for your inspiration, this works for me:
my photos were ( and still are) organised by year/ topic in folders on /photo (Shared folder) nothing to do with homes.
It been setup that way since ancient times, just continued this way of working by copying my photos there via mobile phone (photos mobile) or from a camera Into the folders.
I had to modify the shared folder settings of synology photo, and all photos are therefore shared. As I do not use albums, only folder view can be used here.

Thanks for the input. I just did a full export from apple photo app and have over 41,000 photos and movies just dumped in a large folder.

I wonder if I move that folder over to my DS920+ do I need to import the picture still or can I just dump them into the Photos folder and the Photos app will automatically find them?
