Complicating matters, these images often reside on multiple devices and/or services," according to Hans Hartman, chair of Mobile Photo Connect.

"Customers are looking for more intelligent and automated solutions to aggregate their photos, enhance them, and share them in a meaningful fashion – and do this using whichever device best meets their purpose. It is up to vendors to turn these customer needs into meaningful and profitable solutions, and we're excited to offer a platform to explore these issues, to share best practices, and to pursue partnering opportunities."
