Title
(EN) VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF PHOTO ALBUMS
(FR) REPRÉSENTATIONS VISUELLES D’ALBUMS PHOTOGRAPHIQUES
Abstract
(EN) Systems and methods for selecting representative photos for a photo album are described. An example computing device may include a display, a logic device, and a storage device storing instructions executable by the logic device to, for each known individual recognized in one or more photos of the album, determine an affinity score for that known individual indicating a connection of that known individual to a) a user of the computing device and b) a context corresponding to the album. The instructions may be further executable to select one or more known individuals based on the affinity score to be included in a subset of the known individuals recognized in one or more photos of the album, and select a representative photo of each of the subset of the known individuals to be included in one or more of a highlight photoset and a cover photo for the album.
(FR) L’invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant de sélectionner des photos représentatives pour un album photographique. Un exemple de dispositif informatique peut comprendre un écran, un dispositif logique et un dispositif de stockage servant à stocker des instructions exécutables par le dispositif logique afin de déterminer, pour chaque individu connu reconnu dans une ou plusieurs photos de l’album, un score d’affinité pour cet individu connu indiquant une relation entre cet individu connu et a) un utilisateur du dispositif informatique et b) un contexte correspondant à l’album. Les instructions peuvent également être exécutées pour sélectionner un ou plusieurs individus connus en fonction du score d’affinité à inclure dans un sous-ensemble des individus connus reconnus dans une ou plusieurs photos de l’album, puis sélectionner une photo représentative de chaque individu du sous-ensemble des individus connus à inclure dans un ou plusieurs éléments tels qu’une photocomposition de présentation et une photographie de couverture destinée à l’album.
