AnnoTater is a Windows utility that embeds annotations in (not on) pictures (.bmp, .jpg, .gif), it can store information about the contents of a picture within the picture file itself. An annotation is defined as a note, comment, or explanation added as further clarification - that is just what AnnoTater does. It embeds text into a picture file, usually for the purpose of documenting what the picture represents. The annotation does not appear on the picture itself, but in a separate viewer. The picture needs no additional files (such as a database) to contain the annotation, it is stored invisibly within the picture. You can treat an annotated picture just like any other picture file. It will display normally in most browsers and image viewers, can be part of a web page, an email attachment, or posted in usenet. However, when a picture file is viewed with AnnoTater, the invisible annotation is extracted and displayed. AnnoTater has a search utility that will find picture files containing specified text. Just enter a word or phrase to search for and AnnoTater will find and display them. Annotations can contained embedded hyperlinks that (when double-clicked) will automatically start your web browser and send it to the specified web page. AnnoTater can copy or move a group of annotated files to another folder. For example, you may do a search for "gardenia" and then copy the matching files to a folder where you keep pictures of flowers.
