What is ThingLink?


With ThingLink you can easily annotate image and video content with notes and rich media links.

Over 1.5 million publishers, businesses, and educators use ThingLink to create interactive news photography, maps, posters, family albums, infographics, shoppable product catalogs, and much more!

You can share ThingLink images to social media channels, blogs, and keep following how people interact with each link on each embed location. That's pretty cool!

If you are more into curation, you can use ThingLink to start your own interactive channel and feature images and videos that you find particularly awesome.

One image tells more than a thousand words. With ThingLink you can turn any piece of visual media into an engaging story.
