It has taken me a while, but I finally have a setup that uploads the pictures on my phone to my own photo gallery site.
1. Server application
I use an open source web gallery software called Piwigo. I have created a private gallery where I upload all my photos. Then I can either associate new pictures to galleries or move them to galleries. Piwigo doesn’t have an auto sync feature though. This means when a new photo is uploaded via ftp you would have to login and push the sync button. To fix this I found this perl script and put it in cron. This way every hour the sync button is pushed automatically.
2. Phone application
I found an Android app called Folder Sync Lite. I set this up to sync my camera directory from my SD card to my upload directory in my Piwigo install. I don’t need this to happen right away so I set it up to auto sync every 6 hrs. I also setup Folder Sync Lite to sync deletes. This way when I delete bad pics from my phone they also get delete on the server.
I really like this setup because my phone is with me all the time. This means you may be seeing more pictures from me.
