Enhanced Image Commenting is now live! Draw a box around any area of an image you want to comment on and start a conversation about that area; others can reply to your comment or start their own conversational thread, just like the way NowComment handles text. And you can make general (Whole Image) comments too.

This feature only works on newly uploaded documents.

We'd love your input on:

  • interesting image categories and commenting applications you think are a good fit for this powerful new feature
  • any ideas for making image commenting (and NowComment) easier and better!

We hope you enjoy it!

Hunters in the Snow, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, 1565


Bruegel’s breathtaking panoramic painting shows a scene set in harshest winter. The weary hunters of the title are returning home at the end of a disappointing hunt (the rewards of their labours, as we see, are meagre, and even the dogs look a little sorry for themselves, though the expansive view they and we are looking down on is spectacular and uplifting). The scene is described with striking spareness, the poet picking out details that make up the composition as a whole, making us aware of "Bruegel the painter" bringing these elements carefully and strikingly together.

Hunters in the Snow, William Carlos Williams (1962)

The over-all picture is winter
icy mountains
in the background the return

from the hunt it is toward evening
from the left
sturdy hunters lead in

their pack the inn-sign
hanging from a
broken hinge is a stag a crucifix

between his antlers the cold
inn yard is
deserted but for a huge bonfire

that flares wind-driven tended by
women who cluster
about it to the right beyond

the hill is a pattern of skaters
Brueghel the painter
concerned with it all has chosen

a winter-struck bush for his
foreground to
complete the picture

[Note the use of line breaks to separate lines but carriage returns to separate stanzas.]

Small Images (under 50x50 pixels)

don’t support the image toolbar, but you can still make whole image comments by making “Whole Image” comments (double clicking on the image or paragraph number). Note that images inserted into Microsoft Word can increase in size, so something that “should” be less than 50x50 may turn out to be bigger than that on NowComment. Copy-and-pasting HTML content doesn’t cause that kind of bloat.

Coming Soon:

  • Mobile enhancement to allow drawing of new Areas
  • Enhancing video commenting similarly
