I've been a photographer for quite some time now and with the creation of smart phones line the iPhone and Android, being a photographer has never been easier. But because we create so much content from our phones, SLRs, point and shoots, etc. isn't there a better way to organize them?
Yeah, Facebook gives us the ability to put things into albums, but so does everything else (Google+ and Flickr notwithstanding).
That said, I am building an application that allows people to find all the photos they have from many different sources and use logic to show them the better photos they've taken in an aesthetically pleasing way that is not a thumbnail or a fullscreen photo.
I think the challenge will be presenting them with another photo application and requiring access to many networks of photos before the application can be see as useful to them. There are so many applications out there and with the Instagrams of the world, I don't want this thing to get lost when it can bring some real value.
