The modern digital photography equipment for shooting an image only records the attribute information and shooting data of the digital image, and does not include information such as weather conditions at the time for retrieval. Even photos taken by new-generation smart devices and more than high-end digital cameras only record GPS (Global Positioning System) information for review and application on the map. Therefore, this study presents a memory-friendly life film editing system to record a user’s video, time, location (GPS coordinates), and event (synchronizing electronic calendar or daily fascinating notes in a day). The information is automatically imported into the video diary modified by the storyboard. The user is free to enter interesting events in the memo, and use this information to perform accurate recall video retrieval. The automatic life film editing system can freely select the time, location, or events to retrieve all eligible recall videos, then select the desired recall videos and time slice to export a life film for viewing.
