AI Powered Facial Recognition & Photos Clustering (like Google Photos) for your Frappe sites.

Try on Frappe Cloud


Clone the repo and run docker compose up in the demo folder to spin up a demo instance :)


You may follow these steps to try out Photos:

  1. Login to Desk
  2. Upload a new Image file
  3. Navigate to the latest Photo Document
  4. Scroll down to see the human faces detected
  5. Click on each face to show label & more information
  6. If label is not set for a given ROI, add it

Installation is pretty straightforward IF you’re accustomed to Frappe Apps:

  1. bench get-app
  2. bench --site photos-site install-app photos

If you don’t know that and still want to try it out, here’s the Frappe documentation for the same -
