1. Introduction

Digital camera has become an indispensable commodity for each family or individual in recent years. With the advance of digital capturing/storage, people can take pictures at will and have been more accustomed to record everything by photographs rather than text. Nevertheless, large amounts of photos without appropriate organization draw a potential problem for information access. Due to the difficulties of accessing or organizing such a huge amount of photos, we have urgent needs in advanced content analysis and presentation techniques. Intuitively, the easiest way to access these disordered photos is through a photo slideshow. In conventional photo slideshows, photos are displayed one-by-one, according to alphabetical or temporal order. Therefore, photos taken in the same scene or having the same topic are separated into different slots, and the browsing experience is cut off. The proposed system that automatically generates music-driven photo slideshows, in which photos having similar characteristics would be displayed in the same frame, and the demonstration of photos proceeds as the pace of the incidental music. Tiling multiple photos into the same frame emphasizes the atmosphere of viewing experience, because the coherence of a frame is elaborately maintained. Collaborative photo presentations that are synchronous to music beats even improves the enjoyment of photo browsing. Because a frame is tiled by multiple photos, we called the proposed presentation tiling slideshow.
