Is your media library a mess ?
With Piwigo, you can centralize, organize, share all your media files. Easily and safely.
Your online administration panel allows you to upload files to Piwigo easily, quickly, in one click. You can also, if you wish, synchronize a directory on your hard drive, or import files from one of the compatible applications - digiKam, Lightroom, Shotwell...
Download the Piwigo mobile app for Android or iOS and upload photos to your photo library directly from your smartphone: very useful for teams in the field!
With Piwigo, you can allow third parties to upload files to your photo library, without giving them admin rights. This will save time to your teams and service providers (forget emails and large file transfers!)
Piwigo supports many image (JPG, PNG, TIFF, RAW, etc.) and videos (MP4, MOV, OGG) file formats. You can also import your PDF documents (brochures, presentations, graphic designs...), as well as source files (PSD, AI files, etc.), and any other type of file.
With Piwigo, create an unlimited tree structure of albums and sub-albums to store your files. You can classify the same file in several albums, without creating duplicates. Albums are displayed in the order that suits you, regardless of their name or creation date.
In addition to albums, Piwigo allows you to categorize your files using tags or keywords. You can combine multiple tags to search for a file in your photo library. Our users love tags and use them in a wide variety of ways to organize their photo library and facilitate discovery.
Display images from your photo library on a world map with Piwigo! If your photos already include geographic coordinates, it's automated. And if not, no problem: you can assign them manually. It is both very practical for finding a file, but also for offering your users a fun and interactive way to navigate through your photo library.
Piwigo offers a very powerful search engine, which allows you to filter your photo library by combining many properties: title, file name, description, date, author, tags, albums... An album search engine also allows administrators to easily find an album.
Each file is associated with a set of properties: title, author, date, description... You can add custom fields, manage copyrights and their expiration date. Some properties are automatically imported from the file metadata (EXIF / IPPC); others can be added at any moment, individually for each photo or in batches. You can edit or update a file without losing its properties.
Each user can set aside their favorite photos to find them at any time. They also can create personal collections, ie selections of files for a one-time or recurring need. This allows everyone, independently of albums and tags, to personalize their use of the photo library and to save time, whether they iuse Piwigo daily or occasionally.
With Piwigo, invite an unlimited number of users to your photo library, and customize their permissions according to their needs. Administrators, contributors or simple visitors: you can manage different levels of access, organize them into groups, and customize everyone's permissions very finely: upload and download, access to albums...
Need to share a file or album with someone outside your organization? You can send them a download link by email with a limited validity period, even if they don't have a user account on your Piwigo.
Piwigo allows you to create beautiful public photo galleries, for photographers who want to exhibit their work, or for organizations who share their photo library on the internet. But your photo library can also be completely private, and accessible only to identified users. You can also mix the two approaches, with a private part and a public part: it's up to you!
Choose who has the right to download the files present on your Piwigo. For each user, you can determine if they only has access to view files (in low definition), or to download. You can even prohibit any form of downloading, by disabling the right click on your photo library!
With Piwigo, teams can collaborate and exchange online in different ways: by rating files, discussing via comments, sending albums by email...
You can choose from nearly 30 themes, or templates, to customize the display of your gallery. In addition, each theme has many configuration options, starting with the choice of colors. Because each photo library is unique!
Homepage, login screen, custom banner: you have many default options to customize your gallery. You also have access to a hundred plugins or extensions to customize your gallery! Contact form, copyright management, slideshows... Choose the plugins you like and model your Piwigo to your image, according to your needs.
We offer each enterprise customer a graphic customization of their gallery, to adapt to their needs and their brand identity. For those who wish, we can set up advanced customization, developing custom features. And if you have knowledge of CSS and PHP, you can also do it yourself!
With Piwigo, you have access to easily understandable graphs, to visualize the traffic on your photo library. View the history of visits by day, month or year, and see the popularity of your Piwigo grow over time. An advanced search engine allows you to view activity in detail over a given period, and find out which albums, tags and photos are the most popular.
With Piwigo, all actions performed on your photo library are traced and logged. You can monitor user activity on a graph, and monitor all their actions in detail: addition / deletion / modification of album, photo, user...
If the statistical tools integrated into Piwigo are not enough for you, you can very easily connect your Piwigo to a third-party statistical tool. Piwigo connects to Google Analytics and Matomo.
You don't want your data to be available to anyone on the Internet, and that's okay. We implement numerous procedures to protect our platform against any hacking attempt. In addition, we are very attached to confidentiality: we do not use any third-party cookies and are 100% GDPR compliant. Photos, email addresses and IP addresses will never be shared outside of Piwigo.
We chose OVH, a french company, to rent our servers. In the hosting market, OVH is number 1 in Europe and number 3 in the world. Each Piwigo.com account is hosted on one of our dedicated servers: we fully control this server and it is not shared with other OVH customers.
Your data is backed up and copied to a standby server, located on a physical location other than the main server. When a fire destroyed several OVH data centers in 2021, no data was lost.
At Piwigo, we are against "locking in" our customers. Therefore, you can at any time recover your data to host it elsewhere. If you want to stop your subscription, and host Piwigo on your own server, we even help you "move" your data.
