Extend Image Value by Tagging with Rich Content
Image tagging is a popular new way to make pictures on a website more informative and engaging for users.
Now, website owners and designers can bring that engagement to their own images with the iPicture jQuery plugin that allows users to create interactive image walkthroughs that use the pictures already one their websites.
iPicture makes it incredibly easy to overlay little tooltips and hints on top of the image, which will appear to viewers as small circles with a + sign in the middle (see image below). When users scroll over these icons, they’ll see additional information that comes in the form of various types of rich content, such as HTML, photos or even videos.
The plugin is easy to integrate into a website and can be customized and extended using CSS. Even the individual tooltip icons, themselves, can be altered to match the look and feel of a site.
