The most requested feature for Immich has just been implemented by this guy!

Now using Immich makes much more sense since you’ll be able to sync with Immich your existing photo galleries!

    saying you shouldn’t use it

    The disclaimer says "Do not use the app as the only way to store your photos and videos.. It doesn’t say not to use it.

    In other words, don’t (yet) trust it like you might Google Photos or iCloud. Make sure your images are syncing to your Immich server, and make sure you back them up.

    I’ve been using Immich for a few months now, and couldn’t be happier. I have a 2N+C strategy for my data (what many people call 3-2-1). My Immich server writes all synced photos and videos to my primary NAS, which in turn is synced to my secondary NAS. Once a night, I sync copies to a cloud storage service.

      Point taken about backups. I wouldn’t self host something like this without backups.

      Backups are obviously a good idea, but it’s a pain in the ass having to restore your data. A disclaimer like this implies that restoring from backup will be a regular thing. That’s why I was curious about peoples experience with it. How frequently does it wipe your photos?
