Many approaches have been proposed to connect mobile phones with interactive tables. Most rely on having the phone placed on table all times, which may hinder the overall user experience with applications on phones in general and with photo sharing ones in particular: privacy, intuitiveness of use, and technology limits are on stake. We introduce in this paper an approach which allows users to have the phone in hand when interacting with photo manipulation applications on tables, supported with natural gestures of throwing photos off the phone onto the table and dragging them into it to enhance the connected relationship between the two physical entities even when placed apart.
