The future of digital clutter - trigger happy consumers today are capturing thousands of photos a year and inadvertently creating digital clutter on their hard drives or cloud storage services. This digital clutter has become a barrier in print fulfillment and/or enjoyment of photos. We will propose a solution which is a combination of technology and the trained human eye that can take a "heap" of digital photos and transform them into a beautifully laid out "photo story" that can be printed or enjoyed on a digital display/mobile device with zero work from the user. Conversion rates of this solution for photo stories (from photo upload to print) are north of 75% in comparison to the best photo book tools that are in the range of 30%. We will discuss sharing of these photo stories across platforms - mobile, web and TV.
