  • Patent number: 10389804
    Abstract: Content creation and sharing integration techniques and systems are described. In one or more implementations, techniques are described in which modifiable versions of content (e.g., images) are created and shared via a content sharing service such that image creation functionality used to create the images is preserved to permit continued creation using this functionality. In one or more additional implementations, image creation functionality employed by a creative professional to create content is leveraged to locate similar images from a content sharing service.

  • Patent number: 10366433
    Abstract: Usage based content search result techniques are described. In one or more implementations, a digital medium environment controls image searches and availability by one or more computing devices. A search is performed by the one or more computing devices to locate images made available via a network by a content sharing service responsive to one or more inputs received from a user. A search result is configured by the one or more computing devices that includes the plurality of images based at least in part on an amount of usage of respective said images by other users of the content sharing service. Output of the search result is controlled via a user interface by the one or more computing devices to the user of the content sharing service.

  • Patent number: 10198590
    Abstract: Content creation collection and navigation techniques and systems are described. In one example, a representative image is used by a content sharing service to interact with a collection of images provided as part of a search result. In another example, a user interface image navigation control is configured to support user navigation through images based on one or more metrics. In a further example, a user interface image navigation control is configured to support user navigation through images based on one or more metrics identified for an object selected from the image. In yet another example, collections of images are leveraged as part of content creation. In another example, data obtained from a content sharing service is leveraged to indicate suitability of images of a user for licensing as part of the service.

  • Patent number: 10169111
    Abstract: A unified mechanism for storing device, application, and service state, as well as a rich notification brokerage architecture includes a notification broker. Clients register with the notification broker to receive notifications for changes to state properties. When a registered state property changes, a notification broker determines which clients to notify of the state change and provides the client with a notification regarding the change. Clients may be notified whenever a state changes, when a state change meets a predetermined condition, or based on a schedule. An application may also be launched in response to a state change. An application programming interface (API) is provided that provides a unified way of accessing state change information across different components within the device.

  • Patent number: 9911172
    Abstract: Content creation and licensing control techniques are described. In a first example, a content creation service is configured to support content creation using an image along with functionality to locate the image or a similar image that is available for licensing. In another example, previews of images are used to generate different versions of content along with an option to license images previewed in an approved version of the content. In a further example, fingerprints are used to locate images used as part of content creation by a content creation service without leaving a context of the service. In yet another example, location of licensable versions of images is based at least in part on identification of a watermark included as part of an image. In an additional example, an image itself is used as a basis to locate other images available for licensing by a content sharing service.

  • Patent number: 9818044
    Abstract: Content update and suggestion techniques are described. In one or more implementations, techniques are implemented to generate suggestions that are usable to guide creative professionals in updating content such as images, video, sound, multimedia, and so forth. A variety of techniques are usable to generate suggestions for the content professionals. In one example, suggestions are based on shared characteristics of images licensed by users of a content sharing service, e.g., licensed by the users. In another example, suggestions are based on metadata of the images licensed by the users, the metadata describing characteristics of how the images are created. These suggestions are then used to guide transformation of a user's image such that the image exhibits these characteristics and thus has an increased likelihood of being desired for licensing by customers of the service.

  • Publication number: 20170132290
    Abstract: Image search techniques and systems involving emotions are described. In one or more implementations, a digital medium environment of a content sharing service is described for image search result configuration and control based on a search request that indicates an emotion. The search request is received that includes one or more keywords and specifies an emotion. Images are located that are available for licensing by matching one or more tags associated with the image with the one or more keywords and as corresponding to the emotion. The emotion of the images is identified using one or more models that are trained using machine learning based at least in part on training images having tagged emotions. Output is controlled of a search result having one or more representations of the images that are selectable to license respective images from the content sharing service.

  • Publication number: 20170053103
    Abstract: Image search persona techniques and systems are described. In one or more implementations, a digital medium environment is described for controlling image searches by one or more computing devices. An image search request and an indication of one or more personas of one or more respective users associated with the image search request is received by the one or more computing devices. The one or more personas specify characteristics of the one or more respective users themselves. A plurality of images are obtained by the one or more computing devices based on the image search request. The plurality of images are filtered by the one or more computing devices based on the one or more personas and a search result is generated by the one or more computing devices from the filtered plurality of images.
