"Point a Person" feature
« on: September 17, 2004, 05:28:07 am »

Is their a way to list the names of people in a photo and then point that person out when you click on the name?
Maybe it could be done in a new window or by themes?

For an example follow this link and then click on a persons name. Look for the pointer over the person in the photo.

I found this feature useful in old family photos.

Would require image maps to be created and stored in the db. Doesn't exist, and sounds extremely complicated to me. I see little benefit for mainstream users, so I guess this won't go into the core code of future versions. You (or anybody else seeking this feature) are welcome to post a hack though.

Yeah, this would be one of the best futures on my CPG system also!!!

I'm making photos of people on diverse situations at parties and on the street. So, when one of the photos are used for a magazine, I need to have a modelrelease of the person on the photo. So this is what I'm thinking about:

- Shoot the photo
- Give them my website
- They register
- They Login
- They search for the photo
- Point with cursor on the photo who they are.
- Under the photo will be the Name of the persons...

It can be also some kind of dating site system... but that's for the future. Wink

My idea to devellop it:
- table with user_photo info
- wich person on wich photo (there can be more than one person on 1 photo)

So technically something like to use the coordinates on the photo and the horizontal position of the person to use for the position of the photo.

For an example of this function you can have a look at one of the biggest Party community in the Netherlands:
