Sacko has created an innovative, patent-pending technology that allows
users to identify and label people within digital photos. Sacko's
ability to capture, store and retrieve this data enables it to change
the way people find, view and share digital photos online.
After uploading a photo or while viewing picture, users
have the option to identify individuals within a photo. The
sacko.com website provides an innovative mechanism allowing
users to circle each person in a photo.
Users can change the size and location of each circle to match
the individual’s size in the photo. When the client chooses
to save his/her data. Sacko ascertains the location of each
person in the photo base on the corresponding circle. Sacko
stores this information.
Searching for photos
Users may search for photos containing any single person
or combination thereof at the click of a mouse. The user can
add more contacts to his list at any time and conduct searches
for them. Sacko returns the search results as thumbnails that
can be clicked for a full view.
Sacko’s technology powers a completely unique interface
for viewing photos.
interface allows users to simply point the cursor at an
individual within aphoto and determine his/her identity.
When a user views a photo, Sacko generally displays a
list of names of everyone pictured who has been labeled.
When the user points at a name in that list, the Sacko
interface highlights that person within the image. Alternately,
if the user points at a person in the photo, the interface
displays the person’s name. For privacy reasons,
each user has the option of using a screen name, email,
full name or remaining anonymous. Furthermore, clicking
on a person in a photo initiates a search for additional
photos containing that person, which Sacko automatically
finds and returns to the user’s browser.
Sacko allows all users to control what photos are shown to other
members. Sacko provide the ability to make albums public (viewable
by anyone) or private (viewable by only the members with whom
you explicitly share it with).
In addition, Sacko provides photo-level security, allowing member
to prevent other members from searching and retrieving specific
photos of themselves. This feature enables members to find all
photos of themselves, while at the same time, allowing users
to manage what photos other member view.
With this level of security, Sacko offers the most efficient
and secure way to archive and enjoy photos online.
