A new LiveJournal client released

Hi All,

Our company has recently released a new version of a LiveJournal client, called FotoTagger, that enables you to label a digital image (a photo, for example) on a local computer and then publish it to a LiveJournal account.

These labels can include identification notes, comments, remarks, links to Web resources that contain additional information, or whatsoever. So if you need to memorize something captured on a photo, I think it's a really great tool. Usually we write captions and explanations next to images meaning this information is disjointed from the image it describes.

Since FotoTagger provides an ability to integrate an image and a text, the comments are always stored with the photo as a single entity. They cannot be lost when sharing or moving a file. On the other hand, the pictures are not spoiled with the comments because they could be hidden in a click so a pure original photo is available at any time.

Once an image is annotated, it can be published to LiveJournal in a few clicks directly from the FotoTagger interface. Moreover, an ability to hide/show annotation labels is available to you so your readers can decide whether or not the annotations should be shown.

This is an example how photos annotated with FotoTagger can look aftyer uploading to LJ:

Listing FotoTagger on Downloads page

Hi again!

As you can see from my previous post, we continue to develop and support the FotoTagger image annotation tool. Since May, when the first version was launched, FotoTagger gained new features and was downloaded by tens of thousands users. We also provide technical support so all users who send us requests or questions receive our assistance.

We believe FotoTagger has matured and it should be included onto the Downloads page. Is there any reason why it is not there? If there is something that prevents FotoTagger from appearing on Downloads, please let us know.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

FotoTagger Team
