About Bookmarklet

imageMAT is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you annotate images, organize those annotations, and share your research.

= Description =
imageMAT is browser-based and open-access, operating under a Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivative Works license. It is compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Safari and IE (post-6.0). Use of imageMAT requires registration. Once you have registered and logged into your account, you can create, edit, save, and share an unlimited number of image-annotations. imageMAT imports the URL of an image from its online repository; the tool does not store the image itself, and therefore protects the copyright of the image’s owner(s). You can cut-and-paste the URL directly into the annotation page of the tool. To make importing of image URLs even easier, we have created a bookmarklet that automatically imports a URL to your account.

The imageMAT bookmarklet is a browser-agnostic JavaScript utility that you add to your browser bookmark tab. When you click on the bookmarklet while examining an image in your browser, it automatically records the URL of the image and prepares it for importation into the imageMAT work environment. If you are already signed into your imageMAT account the bookmarklet takes you immediately to the annotation page; if you are not signed in, the bookmarklet will prompt you to log into your account and then proceed to the annotation page.

”’PLEASE NOTE:”’ ””’You must have cookies enabled in your browser for the bookmarklet to function properly.””’
