Someone has come to me looking for some help. They want to be able to annotate an image with text (just like notes in Flickr) and use that to share a narrative (in this case a biography). The only thing is that notes in Flickr are limited to a small number of words and they need to able to have many more attached to each annotation.
Anyone got any ideas on how to make this happen easily?
I've looked at those too, Ann. I really like capzles, and I've passed that on my friend as well. I've also considered something like a google map, or mapness if his biography revolved more around travel.
I actually enjoy the idea of non-linear texts, texts the reader can jump in and out of - but then I'm a little strange and scatter brained so that suits me :)
Your colleague might be interested in voicethread.com. You upload pictures and then can add comments to each photo. Your comments can be textual or spoken. The comments and text then "play" like a slideshow. I'm not sure if that is the type of annotation your colleague is looking for, but it might be!
