Hacking the Future of Photography

EyeEm, Canon and Imaging Mind host Photo Hack Day 4 in Berlin

The fourth annual Photo Hack Day in November in Berlin, Germany, saw dozens of developers, designers and creatives gathering to ‘hack the future of photography’ in the form of a 24 hour coding marathon prototyping new photo applications. One of the main themes or challenges of the day was ‘create’, encouraging participants to harness the latest web and mobile technologies to create an experience for photographers at any level to shoot and learn on the go.

EyeEm is a global community of 15m+ photographers of all abilities who share, interact and learn about photographic image making. There are 60m+ images on the platform, where community members showcase their work to anyone interested in licensing photographs.

In July 2015, EyeEm announced the Discover feed for iOS and Android platforms – a specially-curated collection of stories, photographs and tutorials created to enhance the experience and aid recognition. And among other exciting developments, the Open Edit album now allows any community member to edit their photo with the EyeEm editing tools and then upload and share it. Photographers can share their editing process and allow others to apply those edits to their own photos.
