Yeah but I'm not the one maintaining it. If Plex has a security issue it will be fixed quickly considering it's one of the top apps in the world.

You really equating having a Plex server to opening a direct line to a PC on your local network?

I'm getting into photography and want to be able to access my photos remotely.


Running your own hardware for this as others have said is a royal pain, and if not also using cloud storage as backup very risky.

I've been on SmugMug for over ten years storing about 50k photos. Getting into photography my suggestion is to be ruthless in culling and discarding the "almost good enough" photos. You will never use them in the future, trust me on that.

SmugMug's layout can be nicely customized and albums at full resolution download reasonably quick. Plus, I can give family or friends a secure pswd protected web page for birthday, vacation or other photos.

I have a "pro" account, am not a pro but when I started that was the option for unlimited storage. IIRC they use Amazon AWS for storage. SmugMug has lots of pro users like wedding photogs.

I'd really discourage the home NAS route, been there done that and not worth the time, hassle or risk.

Look into nextcloud if you want to do it yourself for free. Just need a domain and a reverse proxy and then you dont have to worry about security or google scanning your data. Can drag and drop and sync files from your phone or any pc.
