10th Anniversary

Around ten years and a few months ago, I was sitting in my college dorm room, looking for a way to host my photos on my web site in an elegant way. There were a few projects around, but none of them were quite right for my needs. Out of that problem, some feedback-gathering blog posts, and some late nights of coding, Zenphoto was born, with version 0.1 released ten years ago as of yesterday.

Since then, Zenphoto has grown bigger and more widespread than I thought possible, with hundreds of thousands of installations, over 1.4 million pages linking to, 75,000 forum (...)

Introducing ZenphotoConnect

This was of course our traditional April Fools Joke.

ZenphotoConnect is turning Zenphoto into its own media social network! We plan to launch it in May. Every new installation of Zenphoto will then automatically connect to our server on


ZenphotoConnect will display the latest images from all Zenphoto users all over the world. The best is it will be completely respecting your privacy, even by strict EU laws. There will be no accounts with any submission of private and personal data because it is all based on the open standard that is the RSS feed provided by each Zenphoto install anyway. We will also only display downsized thumbs with title, site origin and description excerpt so users are always taken directly to your site for the real deal and your own site's benefit.

You will be able to subscribe to those sites you like best and create your own personal image stream. There will be a plugin to display your stream on your Zenphoto site and on your Zenphoto backend overview page.

With ZenphotoConnect we will bring the Zenphoto (...)
