We propose D-FLIP, a novel algorithm that dynamically displays a set of digital photos using different principles for organizing them. A combination of requirements for photo arrangements can be flexibly replaced or added through the interaction and the results are continuously and dynamically displayed. D-FLIP uses combinatorial optimization and emergent computation approach, where parameters such as location, size, and photo angle are considered to be functions of time; dynamically determined by local relationships among adjacent photos at every time instance. Consequently, the global layout of all photos is automatically varied. Figure 1 (middle) shows an example where all photos belonged to a person are attracted and gathered dynamically around the focused photo when his face is selected. The right figure shows a snapshot when photographs of Mr. A and B were collected in a Venn diagram with red and green circles, respectively. Here, a function of face recognition is assumed to be working and tags for each of the faces are adequately given in advance. Including these, some other examples, which display digital photographs dynamically, interactively, and flexibly, are shown in the video. 2013 Copyright held by the Owner/Author.
