Quick access mechanism for collaborating using imbedded images in diverse locations
When collaborating the user desires rich ways to communicate the information they share. The ability to specify color and fonts and to imbed images into email or other forms of collaboration has become common. Quick access to common images used when communicating has become common as well and is often provided through a menu or palette that the user has access to. What is less common but obvious is for the end user to be able to customize such menus or palettes.
The idea is to allow within the customization of an image palette the ability to reference images anywhere. Images added to the palette can be found locally, on a server, or on the internet. The interaction with the palette (after its been customized) is indifferent to the location of the image and is a composite of images at diverse locations.
The advantage of providing an image palette in this manner is twofold. First, it gives you the opportunity of not having to maintain the image locally on each hard disk that needs the palette. Secondly, it doesn't require the actual image file to be sent when the image is web based. Just the link can be sent thus saving on transfer amounts since just a link reference to the image is being sent.
