|20100266155||Method and Apparatus for Assembling a Targeted Set of Photographs - Apparatus and methods are provided for automatically dividing a collection of digital photographs into subject-specific sets. Before an event at which photographs are to be taken, information identifying some or all subjects is submitted to an automated facilitator. The facilitator generates slates comprising machine-scannable tags or codes, with each identified subject having a unique slate. At the event, for each subject a first photo is taken that includes the subject's slate; any number of photos is taken afterward. The photos are uploaded to the facilitator and scanned to identify the slates. Every photo that follows a slate is associated with the corresponding subject, until another slate is identified. Subjects are provided access codes with which to access the facilitator and view their photographs, purchase copies, order merchandise, etc. Access codes may be separate from the slates, or may be human-readable forms of the machine-scannable tag within the slates.||10-21-2010|
