The explosion of digital camera options available in today's market has increased the number of images captured. According to CEA research, family, friends, natural scenery and pets are the top subjects photographed. Additionally, as smartphone household penetration grows, consumers are using their cellphones more often to capture spontaneous photos. Not only are they taking more photos, but they are also emailing photos to others and posting to social networks once they are captured.
