Abstract: The number of photos has significantly increased in the recent years together with the problem of how to manage them: a picture can be printed as is, arranged into a more interesting photo book or shared through the web. Digital photos have the advantage that can be easily stored and shared with family and friends from different cities or countries but we must consider that many people do not even see the PC screen as a convenient vehicle for synchronously reviewing and sharing of photos with others. This paper presents a framework to bridge the gap between digital web albums and printed photo books. The idea is to allow the user to create, at the same time, a photo book for later printing, and a multimedia presentation to share with friends not only the taken pictures but the experiences they told. The paper presents smilingPhotos a tool for this double authoring: the user creates a multimedia slideshow which can be enriched with audio (music or spoken) comments, transition effects, animations and definition of the layout of the images. The result can be shared across the network, or automatically translated into a static photo book suitable for printing. (More)
