I discovered Piwigo 3 years ago and, since the beginning, it was a pleasant surprise. I am using it for my private photos database on a Synology NAS, around 340 GB and 70.000 pics.

A longtime search for a suitable photo gallery brought me to Piwigo. This is the only gallery that gives a collector incredible help with the possibility of integrating an easy to use SEARCH engine into the collection of photo's.

Just wanted to thank the development team behind the ever growing Piwigo community. Piwigo is easy to install, easy to learn and use, and most importantly gives a good user experience to visitors of your gallery site. Plus many well designed "plugins" to customize to a galleries need.
