Photos are often a means to remember personal events, and the creation of photo albums is the attempt to preserve our memories in a nice book. For a long time people have been creating such photo albums on the basis of prints from analog photos arranged in an album book with scissors and glue and annotated with comments and captions - a tedious task which in these days is getting support by authoring tools and digitally mastered photo books. Relying on the content of others such as printed travel guides, news papers, leaflets, but also friends and family the personal content often has been enriched, enhanced, and completed. This is the starting point of our work: with digital photography and the increasing amount of content-based and contextual metadata of personal photos we can now use this metadata to actually support the targeted and semi-automatic inclusion of interesting, related information from content of others, e.g., from Web 2.0 communities, and offer and add it at the right spot in the personal album. In this paper, we show how photo album creation can benefit from leveraging information learned from many users in regard of the album's content, structure, and semantics.
