Add image region tagging

Description (last modified by sebastian) (diff)

Create a way of selecting a region of an image, and attach a tag to that region.

Other Information:
A big part of the increased effectiveness of social media sharing / tagging has come from tags that have contextual relevance to a specific region of the image. There are currently no standards for this data, so facebook, microsoft, google, etc. have all come up with different implementations, almost none of them are client side, and as far as I can tell none of them are portable between services.
One of the first attempts at making this data embedded in images was by Greg Elin, called Fotonotes. (

A good option would be to come up with a relatively open and obvious structure for the data, and allow the user to download it along with the image file, unloading portability to an outside application. There are probably many other solutions that would fit this need as well.
