Managing and Searching Personal Photo Collections

Gargi, Ullas; Deng, Yining; Tretter, Daniel R.


Keyword(s): photo collections; image similarity; face detection; camera metadata; EXIF

Abstract: We present a design of a prototype system for managing and searching collections of personal digital images. The system allows the collection to be stored across a mixture of local and remote computers and managed seamlessly. It provides multiple ways of organizing and viewing the same collection. It also provides a search function that uses features based on face detection and low-level color, texture and edge features combined with digital camera capture settings to provide high-quality search that is computed at the server but available from all other networked devices accessing the photo collection. Evaluations of the search facility using human relevancy experiments are provided.
