We’re also excited today to introduce a cool little tool that lets you add notes or annotations on photos. The tool is super handy for identifying people within a photo, since you can highlight an area of the photo and type in a name or description of the highlighted area.
The notes only appear when your mouse hovers over the image. When your mouse hovers over the note, you’ll see the note text appear.
The notes are stored alongside the other information you enter about the photo. If the photo is public the notes you add will also be public.
Here you will find informational, and sometimes fun, posts from the folks behind the scenes here at Ancestry.com. We hope you’ll notice just how passionate we are about family history and about the products we’re building to help connect families over distance and time.Visit Ancestry.com
