advice for web-based image annotation

P: n/a
Hello,

I want to set up a system where I can have my family members write comments about a
number of pictures, as part of a family tree project. Essentially, I want them to be
able to log into a website (I already have the webspace, and the server runs python,
but not mod_python), see images, and be able to fill in text boxes for comments and
enter dates for the pictures. These comments and dates will then be viewable by the
others logging in, so that I can keep track of collect stories, details, dates,
etc...and also, who is writing what, when.

I've written some basic CGI python scripts, and can imagine how to do this, but I was
wondering if it would better to look into a framework like cherrypy, turbogears,
zope, etc. I have never done any database programming, but have written CGI scripts
to modify excel sheets and text files to store state. I am not adverse to learning
the database end, but I don't want to climb that hill unless I feel there is a
significant benefit. I don't have admin rights on the server, if that makes a
difference.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
thanks,

Brian Blais

How about a wiki?

So I thought about a wiki (again having no experience there either...sigh). You can
put images in a wiki? I had a quick look at pytw, but haven't had the time to really
dive into it to see if I could get it going, and if it would work for me.

Yes, generally speaking you can put images in a wiki (look at wikipedia,
it's got tons of images) but I don't know anything about pytw. The
best-known wiki written in Python is probably MoinMoin.
