This book focuses on the methodologies, organization, and communication of
digital image collection research that utilizes social media content.
("Image" is here understood as a cultural, conventional, and
commercial—stock photo—representation.) The lecture offers expert views that
provide different interpretations of images and their potential
implementations. Linguistic and semiotic methodologies as well as
eye-tracking research are employed to both analyze images and comprehend how
humans consider them, including which salient features generally attract
viewers' attention.

This literature review covers image—specifically photographic—research since
2005, when major social media platforms emerged. A citation analysis
includes an overview of co-citation maps that demonstrate the nexus of image
research literature and the journals in which they appear. Eye tracking
tests whether scholarly templates focus on the proper features of an image,
such as people, objects, time, etc., and if a prescribed theme affects the
eye movements of the observer. The results may point to renewed requirements
for building image search engines. As it stands, image management already
requires new algorithms and a new understanding that involves text
recognition and very large database processing.

The aim of this book is to present different image research areas and
demonstrate the challenges image research faces. The book's scope is, by
necessity, far from comprehensive, since the field of digital image research
does not cover fake news, image manipulation, mobile photos, etc.; these
issues are very complex and need a publication of their own. This book
should primarily be useful for students in library and information science,
psychology, and computer science.
