Second funding period of Meta-Image
October 2012 - September 2013:
The focus of Meta-Image is shifting towards optimizing the software for research in the field of Art History.

2012/01/06

After two years of intensive preparation we are very happy to announce the public release of Meta-Image via zur Webseite prometheus. Every user of prometheus can now use Meta-Image to mark details of images, to link these details to each other or with text comments. Starting with a prometheus image collection clicking the Meta-Image button mounts the Meta-Image Editor, where motifs can be identified and marked, metadata can be added and linked image networks can be created by using Hypertext linking. An Export function generates a HTML-site where the links and connections of the finished Meta-Image project can be followed up. See short screencasts on this site to be introduced to the most important functions of Meta-Image.

Another part of the project was the renewal of the presentation-tool of prometheus. It has been enhanced by a light-table function which allows to compare images or image-details directly by juxtaposing them on a canvas.

Meta-Image is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) under the project title 'Meta-Image – A collaborative environment for image discourse' in the program Scientific Library Services and Information Systems (LIS).

We are looking forward for your feedback and your experiences with Meta-Image.
