I’d love to be able to attach an arbitrary web link to a note added to a Flickr photo.
A second text field in the editing interface would be presented for the author to input the desired URL. Viewers would activate the link by clicking within the positioned frame, which would display a link tooltip along the lines of “Click to visit *url*” or “Link: http://www.flickr.com” in addition to the note text. Displaying lengthy URLs could be problematic given the space constraints of the image area. Given that they would be tooltips and not selectable text, breaking a long address into multiple lines would not be too bad.
This would be great for things which appear in your pictures:
- People – link to their photo collection, their weblog, whatever.
- Products – link to a product’s page (yes, we are consumer whores!)
- Places – link to a restaurant or club’s home page, information sites for landmarks, etc.
