Image Metadata

Fotonotes allows text to be associated with areas of JPEG images.
It allows you to embed stories in a picture and, as you roll your mouse over the image, sections are highlighted and the text appears .... Now, think about how Fotonotes can be used to embed metadata in images so that they can be related by database functionality.
MPEG 7 is supposed to have metadata abilities. This might be less a metadata tool and more of a linking or annotation tool, still valuable but not the same. Seen at the Shifted Librarian.
