Just like Google Drive, Nextcloud is not a real alternative to Google Photos.6
With Nextcloud, you have to install and maintain the service/server yourself or pay a 3rd party host to do it for you. This requires some technical knowledge, willingness, and some investment upfront. Nextcloud is not "register an account & go", unlike Google Photos.2
Not really a photo management app.4
