Ars Technica featured article reviews Photonix

We were thrilled to be featured in an article right at the top of Ars Technica’s homepage from Wednesday 23rd June until some point in the weekend.

The article runs through all the self-hosted solutions that exist for moving away from Google Photos.

This put is in front of a much wider audience than we've ever had and this has been proven in terms of traffic and mailing list sign-ups. We were mentioned 2nd in the list which is also a bonus.

I'm amazed I hadn't heard of Photonix before - it seems perfect for my photo library. Great work, and congratulations on this release!

A question: do you expect it to work well on ARM SBCs like Raspberry Pi 4?

Looks awesome! I'll definitely give it a try, thanks!
