Share photos online.

Overview

myPhoto is the easiest way to share you photos on a Mac - it automatically shares your digital photo albums stored in iPhoto on the Internet with no effort on your part. The Web site myPhoto creates for you has all of the features you are accustomed to in iPhoto - captions, thumbnails, albums, a search engine, ratings, and much more.

What's new in myPhoto

Version 1.5:
  • Now fully compatible with iPhoto 2, 4, and 5.
  • Added myPhotoAssistant: this program runs in background all the time (like a daemon, for the technically inclined) and is responsible with keeping myPhoto's cache of iPhoto data fresh all the time. This is much faster than the old way, much more robust, and fixes a *lot* of bugs.
  • Added myPhotoPrefs: this is a System Preference Pane for some basic configuration options for myPhotoAssistant.
  • Added Spanish translation (thanks to Charles Hastings) and Dutch translation (thanks to Casper Kraima)
  • myPhoto can coallese multiple iPhoto Libraries into one Web site (useful for those who use third party iPhoto Library manager programs).
  • Added iPhoto-based keyword search support (in addition to caption/date search).
  • Added iPhoto-based ratings.

Bugfixes
  • Before, if your myPhoto cache got stale, viewers of your photo album got stuck waiting for the cache to rebuild and that was slow and it happened just when somebody wanted to see your photos. myPhotoAssistant eliminates this problem.
  • Before, the cache rebuilds put a lock on the site so nobody would view the site with an incomplete cache. Often times, this lock got stuck and needed to be manually "unlocked." No more (finally!).
  • Forcing a cache to be rebuilt should be completely unnecessary (I kept the functionality there though since it's always handy to have around ).
  • Before, the last photo of each album would be missing. No more.
  • Before, myPhoto's cache didn't capture all of the data from iPhoto (i.e. keywords, ratings, etc), but now it does. It was also very sensitive to changes in iPhoto's file format, making it prone to breaking with new versions. Now it is much more robust.
  • Compatible with whatever image or movie formats iPhoto will allow.
  • Before, the search engine only used the main Library as the ultimate collection to search. Not too useful for those who blocked their Library, especially now that myPhoto can have more than one at a time. Search behaves more like you'd expect it to now.

Once past the terminal mods at installation (due for change) this program does as promised. Unfortunately it only handles a simple relocation of the photos to the web site. It requires the ability to place different albums in different directories to make it a top class application

WARNING: This application will MOVE (not copy) your ENTIRE iPhoto library into your "Sites" folder without asking, and places as alias in your "Pictures" folder where it used to be. It does not back up the Photo Library before moving it. Your pictures are no longer in your Pictures folder. Better remember that when backing up your files!

It's free ! It works ! Quick and hassle free set up ! One of the best free apps that add value to your Mac experience. It will be a while before Apple get round to making an app like this so myPhoto is the best option that I have tried for sharing my iPhoto images.

This is a great application and the perfect extension to iPhoto. Easy to install and easy to administer, there is no faster way to put pictures online! I was able to put a iPhoto library of 5000+ pictures with over 100 albums online in minutes. I have used this software for over a year.

Two thumbs up! Especially after installing the PHP 4.3.10 from http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/. Thanks Michael. Jules

If you've got broadband and use iPhoto you really should try this out. Both iPhoto's built-in web export and that facilitated by third party plug-ins (free or shareware) are the best option if you can't serve the pictures on your own computer but they get out-of-date unless you export whenever you make a change. Until iPhoto can do this out-of-the-box, myPhoto is worth a try.

"Moving iPhoto Library into Sites folder FAILED!" Well so much for that. Thought you had answerred my prayers for a LIVE iPhoto Web Browser application. It doesn't work with iPhoto 4 !!!!

myPhoto 1.3 does work with iPhoto 4. The automated installer is not perfected and so it's a bit picky if your iPhoto Library isn't exactly where it expects it to be (~/Pictures/). This does not mean that you can't install myPhoto--if you check the included Read Me, there are detailed instructions for those would rather do it themselves or had some issue with the installer. I apologize for the inconvenience. -Mike

For people like myself who run their own webserver from home, this is a great application! It makes sharing our family photos so easy. We used too rarely update our online photo albums becasue it was so much work... No more! As soon as the photos and albums are organized on our home server/worstation, we're done! Setup took a little time, but it was easier than most PHP scripts. The documentation is good, and the developer has really put a lot of work into adding requested features. I really like the inclusion of the GD library which allows for on-the-fly resizing of images.
