STELLA - Consumer Photo Clustering and Visualization
An interactive framework for organizing personal digital image collections. We introduce the detection of bracketing (two or more photographs of the same subject, made using different aperture/speed settings), and a novel clustering algorithm (based on Ward's algorithm) to exploit image sequence information in each roll of film. Images within a roll of film (and accross rolls) are clustered hierarchically and presented to the user, who modifies the clusters to organize his collection.
