Public Beta for Photo Supreme Online

Post by Hert » 16 Jul 20 8:29

You can now participate in the public beta of a new module that is in development: Photo Supreme Online (PSO). This is beta software and therefore should only be installed if you're comfortable running software that can/may/probably has issues. The PSO-beta is only available for Photo Supreme Server on Windows running with the PostgreSQL database.

The Photo Supreme Online is an add-on module for the Photo Supreme Server Edition using PostgreSQL as its database, currently only available for the Windows platform. Photo Supreme Online comes as a Web Service Module that serves your Photo Supreme PostgreSQL catalog in a web browser. The Web Service Module enables visitors to access your catalog, directly from an Internet Browser like Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, Firefox and the like.

The Web Service Module is a low-cost solution for smaller user groups (up to 10 concurrent users). This can be the members of your household in a home network environment, or team colleagues in a small business environment. But with the right configuration you can also open the catalog for anyone outside your network environment, like friends and family, customers, or field colleagues.

Make sure you have the latest Photo Supreme build installed.

Download the installer here (Windows-PostgreSQL only):

Hert, as I run the SQLite version (and am probably not best placed to swap to server at the moment) I can't help with this particular testing, however it's great to see the progress that you've been making on this!

This looks really exciting! I've long desired a way to allow others to help me manage my photos. I know that exists already, but this is lighter weight. Depending on how this is implemented, it could sway me to the server edition.

A couple questions:
  • Will there be any way to run this from a Synology NAS? (understood it's Windows only currently)
  • What operations will be available via web access? (I'm pretty much only interested in metadata/cataloging functions... not editing or file folder manipulations)
  • Would there be a way to check/approve changes made by others?
Looks nice from the screenshots!

Maybe in the future. Right now it only works on Windows.

Afaik, it is possible to install Windows on a Synology in a Virtual Machine. Make sure your NAS is a powerful/high-end one. I do recommend a Synology model with multi core CPU, at least 8GB of installed internal memory and SSD drives installed in the NAS. NAS configurations with less specs will be dreadfully slow.

The Web Module is intended to open up the catalog for display (like providing access to customers, or family or company departments). Catalog Management is done in the PSU software. If you want to do cataloging with multiple people then that is already possible with the Server Edition. They then need the PSU software installed.

Congrats Hert for reaching a public beta stage for PSO.
I'm happy to have been part of the early testing.

I'll try to answer any questions or if some one runs into troubles.
