I have an Idea! This is something I find really hard to work without, and I'm sure many of you photographers/retouches will agree.

I would like to see a "note" section for photos whereby you can actually keep a small detail of notes regarding said pictures. I've bumped into many scenarios where this would have come handy, one of those scenarios was now. I have two family wedding photos that I will need to edit (Face swapping to correct closed eyes!) And I'm just choosing pictures to process. I'd find it so handy to be able to right click on the image/side panel or even in the film reel? part at the bottom and "add note" whereby you can write what needs to be done, or your reasoning to pick the photo etc. I have to rely on using note pad and writing in the image numbers and then adding a note. I then worry about loosing the notepad and forgetting what i am to do. I also think that handwriting support would be good for a note section, as many, well I at least use a tablet quite often, and switching between pen and keyboard can be a bit of a pain....

I do apologies if this is badly structured, I'm not the best when it comes to that, especially at 2am
