It looks like Google Photos is no longer going to be an option for me.

What’s your weapon of choice for storing your photos? My criteria:

  • Easily back up photos taken on my Android phone (ideally automatically).
  • Make photos easily searchable, preferably using image recognition.
  • Not lock me into a specific ecosystem (like Meta or Apple).
  • Not require paying to rent space.

Google Photos is great on the first two but fails on the last two.

@peterdrake

If you’re not concerned with privacy, you could put them on your own public server and let google’s spider crawl through them and then use google’s public image recognition/search.

@Pat I'm not overly concerned, but full-on public to the world seems a bit much.
