Hi Karl :)
I am wondering on Something in the future and i want to know which is the limit of this … or would it be possible to implement this in the future or o part of this :
I am explain ..
We are Hundred millions of users today to have a nice Synology NAS in our office / or Houses .
Today it exist as i know .. only 2 or 3 Tools to manage with you personnals photos .. and we search all the same needs as i could find on some forums of these products ..
- Synology propose "Moments" wich is a sort of timeline of photos .. permit you to save all the content of photos on an iPhone / Ipad … android to push them on your nas .. Lovely ..
The interesting thing about this product is this functionnality .. look you photos from everywhere .. independantly from the GRRR Icloud .. and it permit the user who have à NAS to save and synchronise and Share his photos Under the Synology user environnement . So its Private and cool .
The only problem is the way it makes directory .. one day .. one hour .. one directory ..
And you cant make albums like ALbum1 with a directory Album1 with the photo Inside ..
You couldnt make Subdirectories …
For only this Reason many user dont use it ..
Second product Always from Synology is Photostation wich is a sort of Album directory based classement for photos .. a king of result like what we could make with your favorite X3 … but we need to use a software to upload to photostation … or trough the web page .. in order to have photos displayed like you want .. ( FTP directly or using their DRive … corrupt the rights and chmods … and it put this tool at a bad level because of the rights who are not well implemented …)
A third solution i have tried is PLEX server …
which is frist develloped for videos .. but it works with photos ..
Same problem .. many problems of display for albums .. formats of images … and the only user right is using their website account system …
Thats why i am studying implement à solution for the display part with YOUR X3 …
- Is it possible to have X3 installed on a Synology ? Its seems Yes
- Did X3 have an App Android and IOS to push the save of photos like Moments make it ? No ( Maybe in the future ? )
- Today if i have hundreds albums and subalbums already created .. i put them Under the Synology/drive/MYALLSUPERALBUMSUNDERX3/
did it will function directly ?
- I have 10 Users who have all their accounts and private drive, permission rights are setup by the Synology administration
would it be possible to have X3 working for all my users ? Today if i want to make this .. i have to install 10 Times X3 Under each Drive ?
The Photostation way is interesting because all users have their own hierarchy of photoalbums with their own contents but dont want to share all with other users .. iam not talking about social network but share between users Under the Synology ..
Timeline Presentation Suck when you have hundred photo in a all life ..and all humans .. need to Class them sometime not only in a timeline way but in a sort of organised Event life … 2018/
And a last functionality really need with will be to be WebOS compatible ..
Si i try to understand the problem or difference with hierarchy between X3/WebOS/Photostation/Moments/PLEX …
Maybe i am not the only one who post this sort of need on your forum ..
Thanks for your answers ..
I am using X3 for my website and my first photogallery was your first one in flash witch was my favorite .. but technologies . develloped .. Everyday ..and i know its hard to advance in the good sens for all ..
Thanks for reactions Karl ..
