With much gratitude to a generous grant from the Academy of Korean Studies the ANU is proud to announce the launch of a new website that allows users to upload, manage, share, and use all kinds of images related to Korean studies:
Although many list members will already be using other image hosting websites such as Flickr, Photobucket, Instagram or Pinterest, Pictori offers better protection, and more metadata input tools as well as geographic information, allowing users to indicate on a map exactly where a picture was taken. This feature is unique to image management sites, and it will hopefully provide a useful resource. Pictori also allows you to comment on pictures or ask for help in identifying them. Please view the About page for more information about the site, and its use.
NB: clicking on thumbnails will show the image and all known metadata (including a map where applicable). To see the full-size version of images, users must be registered and logged in.
I hope many list members will sign up and upload images that may be useful to others. If you happen to know some one who is not an H-net list member but owns an interesting collection of images/photographs, please encourage him/her to have a look at the website since we certainly developed the site with them in mind. Approving new members is done manually (for security purposes), but should not take more than 24 hours (and could take as little as a few minutes).
