Self-hosted image library to easily upload, collaborate, and share images on your terms.

Chevereto is a self-hosted multipurpose multi-user, full-featured image sharing solution and an alternative to Google Photos and similar services. It can be used to create a myriad of applications or to empower existing systems, all around the concept of users sharing image content.

Easily start hosting your own image library in the cloud with Linode’s Chevereto Marketplace App.
