Piwigo is a good replacement for Flickr to host your own online photo collection if you have lost faith in cloud providers

With Flickr recently being bought out and the possibility looming of my 9,700 photos being moved and having all my social media links broken, I had a look at some free open source alternatives.

I found Piwigo which not only has a very rich selection of plugins, but it also has one that will import my Flickr photo albums complete with each photo's caption and tags.

I've captured a few screenshots from my album to give an idea of what some of it looks like (there are numerous other themes to choose from). So this is my first link to my self-hosted photos at https://photos.gadgeteer.co.za/index.php?/category/piwigo.

There is also direct upload/export support from digiKam to Piwigo. Photos can be auto resized smaller on upload to save space. More nfo on Piwigo itself at http://piwigo.org.
