Photo Organiser for Large Collection

Dear all,

I'm looking for photo organisation software that can handle a lot of high res images. I have tried the usual suspects, DigiKam etc. However I have found that the performance isn't great. Large collections cause crashes etc. Do people have recommendations?

I use KDE normally.

Best wishes,

Depending upon a number of things -- size (how many) and complexity (how organized) -- you may want to take a look at DSpace (

It's kind of aimed at institutions (libraries, museums, academic) but, if your collection is huge, it's perfectly usable. There is a learning curve (not too steep) and you will need to install some software; e.g., Apache Tomcat and others, but installation and configuration is straight-forward and well documented.

Take a look at the web site and see if it might fit your needs.

Hope this helps some.

Thanks, that looks interesting. Perhaps over kill for my needs. I have been looking at Owncloud, which also looks promising.
