    Hi just installed your docker it looks great and love the object recognition, but i am missing basic functions like folders, delete photos, date search, find duplicates, are you planning to add these?
    ArmandH
    @ArmandH
    Its very slow, running on a server it takes long time to open a photo, not really workable. I notice its python with manage.py taking lots of resources (python /srv/photonix/manage.py classification_object_processor) even up to 100% cpu time, this needs to be tweaked

    Thanks @GyanP. Happy new year to you all!

    @ArmandH Thanks for trying it out. Yes I think all of those feature s are on the roadmap. I agree, there are quite a few basic features missing.

    Generally I worked on the harder database, API and AI stuff first to prove it out and now we're trying to stabilise and fill in the UI gaps. I have a contractor (Gyan) who is helping now so things are really progressing now.

    We have some settings and onboarding screens being finalised now that will let you turn off specific types of image analysis (like object detection which seems to be using 100% of your CPU). classification_object_processor, which does the object detection, does take a lot of compute but will eventually stop once it's been through all your photos. It shouldn't interfere with more important stuff happening on your machine as it is low priority but I'm sure we'll have to review that again soon.

    Great thanks Damian and Happy New Year

    Hi Damian, thank you for making this nice piece of software. I have it running in a docker container. now i'm importing about 100.000 photo's. While importing the gui is offline. Maybe it is the capacity of my machine. I have it running via portainer and seeing the logs it is busy importing :D. Can you explain me the function of the folder "raw-photos-processed" regards Roy
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Hi @R0yk3 thanks for the feedback and giving it a try. 100,000 photos is way more than I've tried it on at the moment. The importing tasks should have lower priority and allow the frontend to respond but it hasn't really been tested on large libraries yet. I would think that it's the object recognition and other analysis that's slowing things down. We have a feature coming soon that allows you to turn off parts like this. It should be released in the next couple of days if you can hang on until then. Regarding, the raw-photos-processed folder - that's for generating cached JPEG versions of RAW files that come out of higher-end cameras.

    @R0yk3
    it scanned all photo's (i think) the location on the drive is not taken as metadata. and the gui is very sluggish. Exept when choosing one of the 'filters' The filters are 'AND' in stead of 'OR' just clicking around.

    @R0yk3
    By the colors. there are two red blocks, one is called schoolbus yellow.. :D
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Oh, interesting. Should be a quick fix - I guess I never loaded a photo with school bus yellow before.
    Out of interest, would you expect filtering to be AND? Can you point to examples of other photo managers that do this?
    R0yk3
    @R0yk3
    Neither did i. But it comes back in a lot of photo's
    i guess it works with a histogram? and lights, beer and all are coming back into this filter.
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Yeah basically a histogram with thresholds. The function for determining is a bit simplistic right now so will be tweaked in future. It's a more orangey yellow than lemon. Just pushed a commit to master so there'll be a new Docker build with the fix in ~15 mins.
    R0yk3
    @R0yk3
    no hurry's
    question about the settings. source folder is that in relation to the "/data/photos" folder?
    I cannot save settings or any thing is that what it is suposed to be.
    i'm using chrome..
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Settings source folder should be the whole path (including /data/photos). It's a bit confusing now though as it needs a backend change to be properly effective.
    R0yk3
    @R0yk3
    I like it, it's stil rough but i like it. i'm not a coder so cannot help you there, but by the time you are going to translate let me know. i can translate to dutch.
    R0yk3
    @R0yk3
    I see more and more objects becoming visible. how long does it continue processing photo's?
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Thanks @R0yk3, appreciate it and will try to remember to ask you to translation. I would expect object detection to keep running for a while yet. Maybe about 5 secs per photo :-I
    ~5.8 days!
    R0yk3
    @R0yk3
    Out of interest, would you expect filtering to be AND? Can you point to examples of other photo managers that do this?
    I missed this post..
    I would expect a 'OR' but it is 'AND' because if i choose a second filter the selection becomes smaller. It would be nice to select the 'AND/OR'
    Cannot point other programs which do this.

    Hi, I just followed the installation instructions for photonix, but I couldn't see any pictures listed from the folders that I have been giving
    image.png
    All I got is this blank screen. Am I missing something?
    I have put couple of pictures in the .../data/photos folder and expecting it to showup in the home page in my library
    Jeyakumar CK
    @JeyakumarCK
    and I gave the base folder as /home/jk/Pictures
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Hi @JeyakumarCK, sorry you're having issues. Do you see any error messages in the console? Also could you run make shell and then ls /data/photos/ to confirm you have files mounted correctly?

    Is it possible to tag images in some way? I read the homepage but it's not cleer if the feature is implemented or not. In the demo it's hard to understand, because I presume some features are disabled to prevent spammers from wrecking havoc
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Hi @Fire-Dragon-DoL thanks for the question. Tagging is actually enabled on the demo site right now. To use it, select a thumbnail then scroll down until you see the heading "Tags". You should be able to then click the pencil/edit icon and add some of your own. You can see an example of the UI in this blog post under the heading "General tags": https://photonix.org/blog/january-2021-update/
    Francesco Belladonna
    @Fire-Dragon-DoL
    Ah! Thank you Damian ;)
    I completely missed the fact I was able to scroll, nice

    All I got is this blank screen. Am I missing something?

    I am having the same problem. I used the web interface for setting up "admin" account and set basePath to "/data/photos". When I use "docker-compose run photonix bash" and "ls /data/photos", I get all JPG files listed as root:root and readable. But nothing happens.... any ideas?

    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Hi @legraml, thanks for reporting this issue. I fear it might have been something I recently merged that broke things. I'll hopefully be able to look into it in the next couple of days.
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Hi @legraml, @JeyakumarCK Think I've fixed this import issue now. If you pull and run again I think it would be a lot better at detecting photos as they arrive.

    I've resumed looking at the possibility to build and run Photonix on RPi. While building it is slow, as you mentioned in #67 it is possible to get beyond Tensorflow at least. But as you also mentioned, problems occur later on.
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Hi @jensbrak Thanks for having a go. Yes building the other Python wheel packages is slow - my solution to this is I created my own PyPI server and some scripting to upload packages so they only have to built once per architecture. Are you using (or have you seen) this branch?: https://github.com/damianmoore/photonix/compare/raspberry-pi There'll be some other bits I can push to that branch soon. I think it's very close.
    jensbrak
    @jensbrak
    Ah. Well, I haven't tried that branch no - I just went along with master and when encountering Tensorflow issues I manually installed it (2.4.0 actually). Now there seems to be issues building scipy
    There's no real hurry for me, I just remembered I tried to get it up and running but failed to remember the Github issue I was following lol.
    Damian Moore
    @damianmoore
    Cool @jensbrak. These are the packages I've built so far on my PyPI server in case they're of any use: https://pypi.epixstudios.co.uk/packages/
    jensbrak
    @jensbrak
    Allright. I'll see what I can do. I'll try the pi branch too - so far it stopped at tensorflow once again - which I just omit in the build script for the time being.
