1. LINKING A BLOG POST TO AN AREA IN AN IMAGE ON SITE X
Through the addon the blogger should be able to link a blog post that he/she has written, to a predefined area (hotspot) in an image that is stored on an external site (called â??site Xâ?? in this description).
a) The blogger clicks on a â??link-to-image buttonâ?? under the blog post (similar to the Facebook/Twitter share button). This â??link-to-image buttonâ?? is only visible for the blogger himself/herself.
b) The above action makes a list visible (overlay). The list contains image titles from which the blogger can choose one image title. These image titles are public, i.e. shared/accessible by all that use the addon.
c) When an image title has been chosen, an image (overlay) is shown with predefined hotspots (i.e. pointer sensitive areas in the image). The user can now choose one of the hotspots that exist in the image
2. UPLOADING A NEW IMAGE AND ADDING HOTSPOTS IN THE IMAGE
Through the addon the user should be able to add an own title + image to the list:
