Is it safe to use Photonix with my existing folder structure?

Photonix doesn’t make any changes to your existing photos – it only generates tags and other data in it’s own database. If you upload photos through Photonix’s web or mobile interfaces then Photonix will add the uploaded files to your photos folder but they will remain unmodified.

If you want to be extra certain that Photonix can’t modify your photos you can bind the folder as a read-only Docker volume using something like -v volume-name:/path/in/container:ro in Docker run or adding :ro to the end of a volume path in your docker-compose.yml file.

I love this project! My dream would be a photo organizer / tagger that just goes through all photos at night and automatically detects and learns the contents.... I will follow you for this project and am happy to test any versions.
