Hey Fediverse, I'm looking for a easy-to-use cloud solution for my boomer parents to store photos taken with their phones.

– Images must be accessible on Android phone and Windows PC as local folders (no browser app)
– Must show up as a gallery folder (no standalone app) on their phone into which they can simply move their images

I'd do the initial setup of course, I'd just like them to be able to synchronize images with their PC via gallery without having to jump through hoops.

Any ideas? 🙏


Update: Holy crab, thank you for all your fantastic input! :blobcatheart:

Thanks to your suggestions, I'll be going with Syncthing; it pretty much fulfills everything we need.

I'm also Nextcloud-curious, but will try that some other time (for this issue it feels more like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut). Will tweak Syncthing here and there to suit my parents' needs, and then we're good to go.

Thank you so much, everyone, I super appreciate you taking the time to help me! 🙏
