Photos & Videos on Plex

Family photog, Instagrammer, avid GoPro-er, or professional—no matter where you fall on that spectrum, we have what you need to easily and automagically keep your photos and videos organized and beautiful. With Plex you can easily search, browse, and share your entire photo library on any device, including your big screen.

Timeline view

Say goodbye to searching through folders upon folders to find that photo you are looking for! Chronological clusters make it easier than ever to see all your precious memories in the order that they happened. Scroll quickly through your whole photo collection, watching time go by as quickly or slowly as your fingers decide in our beautiful mosaic layout. Currently in Plex Pass preview.

The magic of automatic photo-tagging

Our image-tagging technology makes it easier than ever to rediscover old memories and search through all your libraries, regardless of how many photos you have. Using object and scene recognition, Plex tags your photos based on subject matter (kids, sports, sunsets etc.), then lets you click on the tags to see other related images. In addition, Plex supports Places as well (locations, including longitude and latitude). This makes for fun, serendipitous discovery of old or forgotten gems that you otherwise might never see. The possibilities are endless!

Hassle-free automatic camera upload

Automatically upload photos and videos from the camera roll on your mobile device to your Plex Media Server with Camera Upload. Ensure safe backup of your memories to your local storage at home (or in the cloud with the Plex Cloud beta) and eliminate the hassle of uploading with a cord—it all happens as soon as you connect to WiFi. You are now free to stream all of your photos and videos to any other Plex app for the ultimate slideshow anywhere!

Privacy and peace of mind

All of your photos and videos are stored in one place that is yours and yours alone—your Plex Media Server. Whether you store them in a physical local drive at home or in your own cloud, there is no question of the privacy and security of your files. Not only does Plex have zero visibility into your media libraries, but your content is protected with end-to-end encryption when you stream it to any device, giving you the peace of mind of knowing that you are in control. Priceless!

Original quality in any format

Add and manage as many photos and videos as you want, without sacrificing a pixel of quality, as long as your server has the space. Plex can handle virtually any file format you throw at it. Most cloud solutions compress files when you upload them so they never look as good as the day you took them. Not Plex! Now, all those hours of glorious scuba footage and sunsets, no matter how ginormous the file size, will be right at home on your Plex Media Server and ready for streaming.
