Paper Abstract

Searching in image databases using image content has made the transition from the laboratory to consumer software. Storm Software is a pioneer in bringing these techniques to shrink- wrapped software applications, and this presentation describes some of the methods we use in our products and some of the experiences we have had in bringing this new technology to consumers. We describe the scope of the problem we are trying to solve as well as some of the algorithms and interfaces we used. We also describe some of the rationales (based on theory as well as on user testing) we had for the various design decisions we made. Finally, we describe some of the challenges and opportunities we see ahead. Descriptions and screen shots of two software products implementing image searching (EasyPhoto and Apple PhotoFlash) are provided. Both products were developed by Storm Software.
