WooCommerce Image Annotator


If you want to add more value to your WooCommerce site by giving more reasons for your customers to buy your product, this plugin is right for you. It will allow you to extend the way you expose your product through annotation of those products in live pictures.

Best of all, this plugin is accompanied with a friendly and responsive user interface for both the frontend and the backend sides. You can annotate, save, display your image, then go back and edit it by adding different products on top of your image.


  • This shows a single annotation. You can see how things are labelled when the user hovers on top of the product.

  • This shows the gallery view of all annotations. You can see that when the users hover the annotated images, they are prompt to click to ‘Shop the look’,

  • This shows the annotated image clicked from the gallery view. As you can see, it displays the annotated image in a popup box. On the left side, we can see the image with all captions. On the right side, we can see all the products annotated within this image.

  • Here is an example of the shortcode that you can use to display the annotated image or embed them into existing posts.

  • This shows the editing process of the annotation. As you can see, it is as easy clicking, dragging, and drop in the rectangles. Below the image, you can see a box called ‘Select Product’, there you can add, reorder or remove the product that are in the pictures.

  • This is an example of the annotation on a mobile device, note how the popup box has been replaced with a larger image, and the product are displayed below the image. This shows that the plugin has been carefully refined in terms of responsiveness and user experience.
