Abstract

This paper reports on a system for browsing and searching image collections on small-screen devices. The system design was informed by our studies of how people organize and access image collections on desktop computers. The final system was evaluated in a user study where users had to search for images with varying degrees of precision about what they were searching for. We discovered that individual users adopt a wide variety of search strategies and that future image management tools must support users through a wide variety of interaction techniques.
