h2. DeepZoom or Annotation?
What we should do first, DeepZoom or Annotation?
The question was settled: both at the same time

h1. Ideas
Dominic: What are all the reasons you would want to annotate an image of a painting?
I want to get as full a list as possible. Do you have a comprehensive list? E.g.
- Interpretation,
- Technique
- Identify features (icons)
- Bring attention to…… damage, marks, inscriptions

h2. Vlado's ideas
Maybe far-fetched ideas:
- an image annotation creates a conceptual sub-object that could have its own semantics, eg:
-- "this here is the King of England which can be deduced from the lions on its robe" (actual annotation at [Image Annotation Tools#Shared Canvas]
-- "this is a Woman's Head"
-- "this has IconClass X"
-- "this is painted by X, in the role of understudy"
-- "this uses Technique X that's different from the technique in the rest of the painting"
-- "this Head X is similar to that other Head Y in another painting"
- an image annotation may be correlated to painting coordinates, so that the annotations of several images can be correlated (but how exactly?)

Collages of several images are used often:
- in [Raphael#Lightbox of all paintings]: to compare paintings
- in [MFPMFP]: to explore or illustrate an arrangement, eg of a tryptich or altar
- in [Image Annotation Tools#Shared Canvas]: to put together pieces of a manuscript that are often stored in different institutions
