With the development of Web 2.0 technologies, the sharing of photographs has increased. In this paper, the authors evaluate the art of photography, analyze how to develop intelligent photograph sharing system, and explaine the requirements of such systems. The authors present an architecture of an intelligent Web 2.0 based system and in future hope to add more modules for retention of users on the system. The system focuses on Web 2.0 usage, web mining for personalization service, and brings a different approach to collaborative filtering.

2. Development Of Photography

The traditional photographic process that has defined image reproduction for over 150 years and involves a long drawn series of chemical reactions. That begins with the capture of light on silver film and ends with transferring of the image onto paper or a transparency through the development processing. The final image is analog, which means it is composed of continuous gradients. There are number of issues related to traditional photography; the costs of films are high, there is no possibility to take an instant view of photographs taken on a screen, like digital cameras. In addition chemical processing of these films in darkroom is time consuming as well as not an easy process. Most importantly archiving these analog images in digital format is harder.

The traditional way to take a picture has not changed much with the advent of digital cameras (Merril, 2005) or has become a little easier, just point and press the button on a camera with automatic focus feature. Most digital images still start out from traditional media. However, digital photography offers more options for being creative with the end product, the images can be altered or digitally enhanced according to the photographer’s context in different ways easily and more artistically using readily available softwares. In addition, digital images can be easily saved on a digital storage medium and add to personal collection, or share them with friends and family via email or with any of the available photo sharing websites. There are number of approaches presented in the literature for sharing digital photos. An approach that includes tabletop interface is described in (Balabanovic, Chu, & Wolff, 2000) although it is good for sharing photos but it lacks the portability. Leonard and Marsden (2007) present a mobile application allowing users to share their digital images with other users. The approach synchronizes the display on multiple mobile devices in asynchronous way and limited to only to maximum of four users at a time.
