Here is a new feature to play with: Image Sets! You can upload a photo of your garden, landscape, wild area, etc. Then you can draw a square around each item in the photo and give a description of what's inside the box you just drew.

Also, instead of entering a description, you can type in a numeric plant ID code and that plant will automatically be linked to it from the database.

Check out the feature here:

http://garden.org/apps/sets/

Click on an image to see it in action.

Once you're viewing an image, at the top of the page you'll see a list of the plants that are mentioned in the photo (if any plants are appropriately marked in, that is). Example:

http://garden.org/apps/sets/view/1/

Lastly, in the database itself, if you are viewing a specific kind of plant that has been tagged in any Image Set, that will appear at the very bottom, below the Photo gallery. Example:

Russian Comfrey (Symphytum x uplandicum 'Bocking 14') (scroll to the bottom to see it).

Have fun!

Dave, this looks very cool! I have so many images of multiple plants that I was not sure what to do with! This gives me a quick option for them!

I am so challenged when it comes to stuff like this. I tried playing with a photo and could only draw one box for typing a name. Is it possible to draw a box around more than one plant in a single photo?

Yes, but you have to do them one at a time. So draw one box and then label it with whatever you want to label it. Then once you're done and you click Ok, you can then add a second box, and so on.

Oho! Do I detect a way to deal with the Companion Plants idea we were discussing elsewhere? Green Grin!

It's raining right now but next time we have nice weather I'm going to take shots of some of our vegetable scenes that have lots of different kinds of plants growing together.

Evan this one you posted is amazing:

http://garden.org/apps/sets/view/6/

It's a perfect example of the way I was hoping this feature would be used.

Soon I'll have it so we can give thumbs to images in this feature, and I will also enable comments so we can discuss each photo submitted.

What is the first step to creating an Image Set?
Is there a certain place we do that in?
