On my OMV server I have got photos from my phone which are in easy in jpeg format but I also have got photos from my other camera which are in RAW format (CR2). What I want is to be able to view these photos on the local network. I did read some fora to see what I kind of software I would need. I the fora I did read the remark: "RAW photos are not for browsers but they are for editing!" So I think I need to explain my user-case a little better.
I am relative new to DLSR camera's this means I want to learn form the photos I make, for instance I can take the 'same' photo with 3 different settings and when I am at home I like to have a look at the photos and the data of the settings to see what the effect was of the settings. This means I intentionally do not trow away all the photos with errors.
When I take a look at the photos with the kids, I just want to browse trough the photos in this case I do not care if they are JPEG or RAW I just want to see the funny moments.
It would be great if I just could copy everything to the server and have software automatically make thumbnails from the RAW photos. The RAW photos are about 25MB If I would load a page with 20 photos this will take a long time. Another reason is RAW is not supported on all devices.
It would be great If I could also watch the pictures on different devices like android phones / tablets, Windows and Linux PC's Chromebook etc.
at a later time it would be great to have the possibility to trans code movies to a smaller format if the client needs it, but this may wait for a later 'server update'
I did just try Lychee but it does not seem to do the job It can not show RAW photos. There is a lot of other software available but I do not know if the RAW pictures are automatically translated to jpeg I can also not easily find what the costs are.
your help is appreciated!
