You need a synchonization script which checks at every login if the
server is available. If so sync all data from server to client. At
logout time you have to do the other way around. This way you have an
actual copy on your server and your client. Problems will occur, if you
change the same foto offline and on the server.

Other possible way: Use a repository server like GIT or SVN. This way
you get a revision and history of changes as addon.
