Some pictures really are worth a thousand words, but we don't
always want to read all those words at once. We need things broken
down so that they are easy to understand. Specipic hopes to solve
Specipic is a tool that enables you to describe your pictures.
Essentially, it allows you to divide your picture into separate
parts and describe each part individually. This keeps your audience
engaged by not overwhelming them with loads of text describing
everything in the picture.
Through an easy-to-use intuitive interface, you can quickly write
a story about your pictures that is both interactive and easy to
read. A picture uploaded to Specipic becomes a mini-blog centered
around that image.
To get started with Specipic, you must be signed up.
It is free to join and only takes a few seconds.
Click here to register.
Great, let's do this!
Go to the upload page by clicking the button to the left of the
menu in the top right corner of the page, or click the 'Submit Photo'
button in the menu. Again, you must have registered and signed
in to upload pictures.
Click the upload button in the center of the page. This will open
a file browser which will let you search for a picture on your
computer or device. Find the picture you want to upload and
You should now see your picture on the page. In order for your
picture to look nice on the main page, you'll need to frame a
preview version in a square. You can click anywhere on the
picture to center the square at that spot. You'll also
notice some fields below the picture. These are used to describe
your picture as a whole and can be seen on the main page
beneath the preview. Note that you aren't describing the
different parts of your picture yet - that comes in the next
step. Click 'Upload' to continue.
Your picture is now uploaded and you can now describe all its
different parts! Click anywhere on the picture to place a marker.
A dot will appear with a circle around it, indicating that it is
currently selected. You can now describe this part of the picture
on the right side of the page. Change the color of the dot by
using the color palette next to the picture. You can also remove
the dot by clicking 'Remove'. When you are finished with a dot,
click the red 'OK' button.
When you are finished placing all your dots, click the red
'Done Editing' button to save your picture. If you decide you
don't want the picture anymore, click 'Delete this picture'
to completely remove the whole picture and all its content.
And you're done! Share your picture with your friends!
How do you pronounce 'Specipic'?
The name Specipic comes from the two words: 'Specify' and 'Picture'.
It is intended to be pronounced Specipic.
However, the word looks a lot like specific
and is often pronounced as such, but we think that still fits the
message we want to convey about the tool.
Who can see my uploaded pictures?
Everyone and anyone. You do not have to be registered to browse the
pictures uploaded to Specipic.
What personal information must I provide to sign up?
We only require your email address.
How much does it cost?
Specipic is a free tool, both to upload pictures and to view them.
I tried to upload a picture but it says it's too small.
We want people to use our site to describe their pictures. As a first
step to achieving this, the pictures themselves must be big enough
to describe. As such, our rule is that your pictures must be at least
300x300 pixels to upload.
The picture I uploaded is sideways! How do I rotate it?
Development for this feature is currently underway. For now,
you'll have to use a 3rd party editing tool like MSPaint or Photoshop
to rotate your pictures.
I want to use Specipic for my business.
Plans are in place for a professional version of Specipic which will
include things like private picture sets, customizable branding and
look and feel, and office user accounts. If you are interested in
being a part of the beta testing program, please contact us!
