The amount of imagery that is available via various content providers grows at a staggering rate. Contemporary handheld devices allow accessing these con- tent providers anytime, anyplace. Moreover, using the build-in camera, one can easily contribute to these online image repositories. The present lack of consistency in how repositories are accessed for retrieval or syncing complicates inter-operability between devices and systems. JPSearch, a recent standardiza- tion initiative within the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) committee, resolves this predicament by defining the interfaces and protocols for data ex- change between them, while restricting as little as possible how those devices, systems or components perform their task.
