The software giant is going up against Google's well-received imaging applications, and has posted a job listing, seeking someone who would help Microsoft develop something new so that you can "view your photo and video collection in dramatically rich and immersive ways."

The posting mentions that Microsoft is looking to build the best photo experience across all screens, from phone to desktop. The features that Microsoft wants on its new photo and video applications include "image analysis, imaging effects, database and a cloud synchronization layer.
