PhotoShow, your web gallery. PhotoShow is a free and open source web gallery, that you can very easily install on your web server. It doesn’t even require a database to work. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install PhotoShow on your Synology NAS using Portainer.
Install Portainer using my step by step guide. If you already have Portainer installed on your Synology NAS, skip this STEP.
Go to File Station and open the docker folder. Inside the docker folder, create one new folder and name it photoshow. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Inside the photoshow folder create 3 new folders. Follow the instructions in the image below.
Log into Portainer using your username and password. On the Portainer left sidebar click on Stacks. After you click on Stacks, a new screen will open. Click + Add Stack. In the Name field type in photoshow. Follow the instructions in the image below.
version: "2.1" services: photoshow: image: linuxserver/photoshow container_name: photoshow environment: - PUID=1026 - PGID=100 - TZ=Europe/Bucharest volumes: - /volume1/docker/photoshow/config:/config - /volume1/docker/photoshow/photo:/Pictures:ro - /volume1/docker/photoshow/thumbs:/Thumbs ports: - 8039:80 restart: always
After you paste the code in the Web editor, change the value for TZ (Select your current Time Zone from this list).
After you paste the code in the Web editor, change the value numbers for PUID and PGID with your own values. (Follow my step by step guide on how to do this.)
Note: If you have your docker folder in a different volume, then change /volume1/docker/photoshow/config according to your settings. For example: /volume1/docker/photoshow/config or /volume1/docker/photoshow/config etc.
Note: The “photo” folder is actually the folder where your photo gallery is stocked. Change the path where your photos are currently stored.
Scroll down on the page until you see a button named Deploy the stack. Click on it. Follow the instructions in the image below. The installation process can take up to a few minutes. It will depend on your Internet speed connection.
If everything goes right, you will see this message at the top right of your screen: “Stack successfully deployed“.
Go back to STEP 1 or you will deal with karma 🙂.
Now open your browser and type in http://Synology-ip-address:8039/ Follow the instructions in the image below. Create new account before proceeding.
Enjoy your PhotoShow!
