Docker Pulls Docker Stars Build Status

Photoshow is gallery software at its easiest, it doesn't even require a database.

Supported Architectures

Our images support multiple architectures such as x86-64, arm64 and armhf. We utilise the docker manifest for multi-platform awareness. More information is available from docker here and our announcement here.

Simply pulling linuxserver/photoshow should retrieve the correct image for your arch, but you can also pull specific arch images via tags.

The architectures supported by this image are:

Architecture

Tag

x86-64

amd64-latest

arm64

arm64v8-latest

armhf

arm32v7-latest

Usage

Here are some example snippets to help you get started creating a container from this image.

docker

docker create \
--name=photoshow \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-p 80:80 \
-v <path to data>:/config \
-v <path to pictures>:/Pictures:ro \
-v <path to store thumbs>:/Thumbs \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/photoshow

docker-compose

Compatible with docker-compose v2 schemas.

---
version: "2"
services:
photoshow:
image: linuxserver/photoshow
container_name: photoshow
environment:
- PUID=1000
- PGID=1000
- TZ=Europe/London
volumes:
- <path to data>:/config
- <path to pictures>:/Pictures:ro
- <path to store thumbs>:/Thumbs
ports:
- 80:80
restart: unless-stopped

Parameters

Docker images are configured using parameters passed at runtime (such as those above). These parameters are separated by a colon and indicate <external>:<internal> respectively. For example, -p 8080:80 would expose port 80 from inside the container to be accessible from the host's IP on port 8080 outside the container.

Ports (-p)

Parameter

Function

80

WebUI

Environment Variables (-e)

Env

Function

PUID=1000

for UserID - see below for explanation

PGID=1000

for GroupID - see below for explanation

TZ=Europe/London

Specify a timezone to use EG Europe/London.

Volume Mappings (-v)

Volume

Function

/config

Stores config and logs for nginx base.

/Pictures:ro

Your local folder of photos you wish to share.

/Thumbs

Local folder to store thumbnails of your images.

User / Group Identifiers

When using volumes (-v flags), permissions issues can arise between the host OS and the container, we avoid this issue by allowing you to specify the user PUID and group PGID.

Ensure any volume directories on the host are owned by the same user you specify and any permissions issues will vanish like magic.

In this instance PUID=1000 and PGID=1000, to find yours use id user as below:

$ id username
uid=1000(dockeruser) gid=1000(dockergroup) groups=1000(dockergroup)

Application Setup

On first run create an admin account, any folder and its subfolders that you map to /Pictures will be presented as a webgallery. Config settings are persistent and stored as a subfolder of the /Thumbs mapping.
