Using external libraries

You can add an existing photo collection using the External Libraries feature. To do so, add a new folder via our SFTP feature under /photos and then add the same path as library path for that external library. E.g. /photos/personal-library.

Also be sure to set the user’s external path as mentioned here. Otherwise all library paths will be ignored. For single user installations, this can be set to /photos.

It can take some time for all photos to be processed, if the library is large. You can see pending import tasks in Administration > Jobs.
