The 'new' feature on many photo sites, like Flickr, is notes, somehow integrated with the photo. Not really integrated, but that is how it appears on the page, like on this collection of 'mine':


http://www.flickr.com/photos/curt-dk/3884282440



When I look at the original picture on my desktop, I can't help wishing to have the same feature on my computer (because I can't remember all 37 car models). But I have never before taken any interest in this, so I don't know if there are any desktop editor+viewer with this feature, 'notes'.

Do you know if I somehow can have "create, point at, and read  NOTES" on my desktop images?
Edit:
the notes must be concentrated on areas of the picture, not on the entire pic' as one. Like the example.

Curt, XNView allows you to add comments to your photo's as descript.ion files.   Brian

- hmm... I just removed XnView a couple of weeks ago because I never have been all satisfied with it. Guess I will have to give it one more chance, again again :-) Thanks for telling!

- does these 'descript.ion' files take for me to use some third party program?
I have not yet found anything connected to '.ion', in XnView.

RMB on any picture and choose Describe... (Ctrl+D).

I didn't check XnView for such feature but some filemanagers (TC too) handles such files when you are moving/copying your images.

I think Curt is looking for something to easily generate something like image maps where he can add multiple notes to an image, for specific locations within the image.

Most tools, if they allow you to add notes only allow you to add one note per image, and not select an area of the image to apply the note to and a second area to apply a different note to.

I don't know of any tool that does what he wants for cataloging purposes. I only know of ones for creating html image maps for displaying on the web.

The Windows built-in "Tooltip" extension goes by file type.  I did one to comment downloads.  The supported extensions are mostly archive file formats for that reason.  For some reason I included .gif and .jpg .. but as noted, it's only one comment per file that pops up in the tooltip.  To do it something would have to import each image as a control or picture onto a toolbar, kind of like how Browser Chooser shows the name of the browser when you mouse hover the icon.  It has to be something that supports hotspots or each pic is a separate control.

edit: if you're curious you can take a look at my tooltip program:

Just as I got it perfected 64 bit is kind of killing it off.  You have to use a 32 bit Explorer instance to see the tooltips in Vista64 or 64 bit W7.  So it's kind of orphaned.

edit2: an aside, one thing lost going from WinHelp to HtmlHelp in Windows is the WinHelp supported hotspots.  For one of my programs I had a picture of a dialog box and mouse hover on each control showed tooltip text in the help.  A pretty cool feature. afaik there's no way to do it in HtmlHelp.. or at least no easy way.
