@MrHenko I don’t know if it has everything on your list, but the Synology NAS software has two different tools for storing and sharing photos and albums. One is called Photostation and the other is Moments. I use my NAS for storing/backing up photos from iDevices but I don’t use it for sharing so I’m not sure how close a match it is.

@ronguest That sounds interesting, but am I right in assuming it’s for the Synology NAS only? I currently don’t use a NAS (I have an old Drobo gathering dust on a shelf) and I was hoping to solve this with either my Linode or an always on MacMini. Original post.

@MrHenko Yes, that is for their NAS.

@ronguest Then that’s not exactly the right solution now, but your post gave me an idea. I seem to recall FreeNAS being a software based NAS, and there are probably other similar products as well. Maybe one of those has a photo sharing feature. Original post.
