Quoting: "It could also be... listed "on the back of the image" e.g. if the UI allowed to "turn it around""

Speaking with my implementor hat on:

This lacks sufficient detail as written to actually implement anything. I don't know what "the back of the image" means, or what specifically you would do to "turn it around". This is handwaving, not a description of an actual implementable UI.
