digital photo album

A digital photo album is a software application that allows the user to import image files from a digital camera, memory card, scanner, or computer hard disk to a central database. Album software applications typically allow the user to view, sort, edit, label, and arrange photos by using a book-like interface that resembles a traditional photo album. Album applications often offer special features, such as providing the user with the ability to create slide shows, order prints and gift items, or receive free online storage space.

Many Internet service providers (ISPs), e-mail providers, and Web portals provide users with free tools to create and store online digital photo albums. Yahoo.com, for example, providers registered users with free, unlimited storage space for digital images. Users do not need any special skills or software. After promising to use their digital photo album space in a manner that meets Yahoo community content standards, users click "upload" to place their .gif or .jpeg files in their photo album. Like most other online photo albums, Yahoo allows the album creator to choose whether to make their photo album public or keep it private. Public albums are given a universal resource locator (URL) address that users can share with others.

Smart frames are electronic picture frames that use universal plug and play(UPnP)to allow users to upload, exchange and print photos directly from their digital camera's memory card. Smart frames are portable and provide an alternative to browser-based digital photo albums. Smart frames often have the same features that online albums have, making them a good alternative for users who want to view their digital photos but do not want to be limited to viewing them on a computer.
