Digital cameras are replacing analogue ones, and electronic photo albums are everywhere on the Internet. Image browsing is used for searching the contents of such albums, but also for a variety of other tasks. Results from image browser studies are sometimes either unexpected or in conflict with previous results. Based on observations made during such experiments, we have identified and analysed a number of visual factors that seem to be relevant for the outcome of the test. This analysis identifies research gaps that need to be filled in order to support choice of appropriate browsing technique in interface design. Some suggestions for future user tests are also given.
