Many Footnote members are uploading historical photos and graphics that they want to share with the Footnote community as Spotlights. The images often contain many persons or items of interest and by annotating them, others can see the names of the people, places and items in the image.
Sometimes members wonder why only one face or item appears in their Spotlight when it is seen on the “Recent Member Discoveries” list.
The problem is caused when a Spotlight is created and then the member annotates the image. The Discoveries list is designed to only show one posting by a member at a time. Thus only the most recent addition, comment, upload, story page or annotation appears on the list.
When you create your next full image spotlight that will also contain annotations, be sure to create the annotations before you create your spotlight. Then your spotlight will contain the entire image rather than just the content of our last annotation.
