Image annotation script (108)

Since I put it into testing over at the ABe board already, I might as well make a thread here to discuss my latest project.

In a nutshell, it's a script for putting notes on images. This is from an idea of whispers', about collaborative translation - several people can work on a translation by creating and editing notes for text on a comic page. There are probably other uses too, if someone can be bothered to think about them.

It's definitely not done yet, but it's open for public scrutiny for bug testing and to gather ideas for features it needs to be useful. Some signs of it being unfinished are:

  • No deletion of notes, and no reverting to older versions.
  • Lack of other unspecified backend features (for instance, discussion threads for each image)
  • It would be useful to have differently coloured notes, but that's not done yet.
  • Some newline issues with certain browsers. Not sure which ones, but that should be easy enough to fix.

Well, have a look. Try not to mess it up too badly. If you want to do some heavy testing, add a new image to work on.

Does your browser display the picture of this?

My IE6 and Firefox1.0.3 don't, even though the image file itself can be reachable via

Strangely, after I access this URL, the former page also works. And when I click the reload button of the brower, the image disappears again.

Seemingly this happens only when the image file is stored in the image board of iitran.

Possibly... redirection does something.

Perhaps they made some changes to's antileeching and inadvertently cut off access?

Yes, that's it. I'll talk to squeeks about it.
