Ziltag: Web Plugin that Turns Images Into Conversation
As Ziltag’s tagline, “Turn Images into Conversation” suggests, it allows users to tag & write on anything inside images, boosting interaction and engagement between bloggers and their readers. Watch the intro video.
How Ziltag Works?
Ziltag follows very simple steps while it comes to installation. All you need to do is visit ziltag.com and join for free. Once you follow the steps and enter your website URL, Ziltag will generate a lean one-line script for you. Copy the script and paste in your HTML to install it. (If you are using WordPress, you can download the WordPress Plugin and read the guide.)
When installed, every image on your website will turn “taggable”, and you can easily add information to something specific appear in the image. For example, a food blogger can add recipes, chef bio, and product link; a craft blogger can add how-tos, material intro, and purchase link; a tech blogger can add tech news, codes, and gadget reviews, all on one image and share to readers. In short, no matter running which kind of blog/website, Ziltag’s users can enrich a single image with more than one story.
Click and write
Adding tags on images is very easy and intuitive. When you find something interesting to write in the image, hover on that image and click the Z icon on the top-right corner to bring up the pop-up. Click anywhere on image and start writing. When finished, hit the post button to post your tag.
If you want to include a Youtube video with the tag, you can directly paste the link when you are writing. The video will automatically be fetched and displayed.
One click to get info
All Ziltag actions start with hovering the cursor on the image. Hover will trigger the Z icon and all tags that have been posted on the image. Click any of the blinking tag to read the content. You can jump from one tag to another just by clicking another tag and start reading.
