In this following paragraph, the WG tries to address an annotation  
problem with the PhotoStuff Image annotator. It seems unrelated to  
the title " 5.1 Use Case: Management of Personal Digital Photo  
Collections" which says *personal*. How someone will be able to  
install Jena, a java application, etc for annotating the photos?

Regarding the actual content of the image, various vocabularies can  
be used depending on the respective thematic category. The example  
shows a photo that has content from the beach holidays thematic  
category. For this reason, a beach ontology and the PhotoStuff image  
annotator [PhotoStuff] can be used to describe the image content.

In terms of personal annotation, examples like Flickr have shown a  
not perfect but workable solution for annotating images. It's why it  
would be interesting to have specific reviews from people creating  
these services to have their opinions about user-needs-driven  
development on their softwares. I think they gain a tremendous  
experience on a large scale and certainly that the assumptions we  
could make.
