Hi again,

My idea is basically letting users to make their conversation more
interactive with Images and screenshot. AFAIK (to my knowledge), there is no
chat client that will let you embed a picture along with the chat

Following features can be provided:

- Letting users embed picture in chat box (drag-drop a pic in box. A pop up
will open to send, use as buddy icon(already exists) and EMBED PICTURE IN

- Take a SnapShot of picture and paste it in chat box (provide a Image
capturing icon, clicking on that will let user embed picture)

- Play around with image say using marker to show what exactly you wanted
to. (a colored pencil for marking would definitely help).


- Makes pidgin useable for people who want to collabarate and work along
with chat. Say send a screenshot of a Directory in Shared folder and
indicate other user can dload this file. etc.

- With this feature we can mimic 'Sharing Photos' feature of Yahoo!

- Take Screenshot of charts/graphs and show other users (Conference).
Something like virtual meeting.

- Boost Pidgin users. People ll migrate who are in need of this feature :)

Please let me know how the idea is. Any suggestions?
