Tell Me More


Zoph (Zoph Organizes Photos) is a web based digital image presentation and management system. In other words, a photo album.

No cloud needed

Zoph is built with PHP and MySQL. You can run it on your own webserver or you can use third-party webhosting. The important part is that you are in control. No cloud needed.

Organize your photos

Many people store their photos in the digital equivalent of a shoe box: lots of directories with names like 'Holiday 2008', 'January 2005' or even 'Photos034'. Like shoe boxes, this is a great way to put your photos away, but not such a great way to find them back or even look at them. Zoph can help you to store your photos and keep them organized.

All of your photos

While most photo album projects are primarily targeted at showing your photos to others, Zoph is primarily targeted at keeping your photos organized for yourself, giving you granular control over what you'd like to show to others, on a per-album or even a per-photo basis.

Zoph is open source

Zoph is open source, free software, licensed under the GNU GPL v2. Development is done using Git, via the GitLab site.

If you want to help with the development of Zoph, you are invited to fork the GitLab project. Even if you're not fluent in PHP, you can probably help!
