I moved all my photos over to my Synology NAS (which I really enjoy) just to discover that it would take months to index all photos. So I started to look for options and while most people managed to increase the speed a bit by reducing the quality of the thumbnails I figured why not utilize some of the CPU power I have at home?

So I ended up using my Linux box to do the thumbnailing for me instead which reduced the time to thumbnail 30.000 photos down to hours.
