We describe the application of ethnography and experimentation to the specification and evaluation of a browser to support collaborative sharing of photographs in family contexts. In an extension of this mixed-method approach, we adopted an ethnographic stance to the posthoc analysis of couples’ interactions recorded during the experimental studies. The experiments and post-experiment analyses yielded usability enhancements and unexpected interaction patterns among couples in categorising and retrieving photographs that led to browser redesign.
