Picasa, the Google service that provides photo sharing on Google+, offers code samples in Java, .NET, PHP, and Objective-C. Examples can be found in the Picasa Web Albums Data API site. To supplement, tutorials show how to work with Eclipse using the Java library, work the Google Data APIs on Salesforce, and use Proxy servers with Google data client libraries.
The myriad of online photo album services that are available today have been threatening to make the humble printed photo album redundant for some time now (for example, we now have over 50 photo APIs in our directory). Despite this services like SnapFish, which offer the ability to easily print customized photo books, have remained incredibly popular. Started 10 years ago and still running strong with its new owner HP, SnapFish reportedly has over 85 million users worldwide. Now developers can get in on the action with the newly announced Snapfish Publisher initiative.
Khronos Group, open standards consortium behind some of today's most innovative technologies, has announced a new initiative to develop an open, royalty-free API for advanced, low-level control of mobile and embedded cameras and sensors. Khronos created the Camera working group to develop the API and is currently recruiting participants. All participants may contribute to the standard and the group will collaborate with other working groups to enhance its effectiveness.
