thanks for reaching out. Feedback like this is always super valuable for us! Your name sounds Brazilian, am I right about this?
I’ll reply to your points in chronological order:
- We’re actually refactoring the front-end of our annotation environment at the moment. The new version will have such a cross when you create labels. It’s still under closed beta, but if you’d like to try it out, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Then I’ll make sure to give you access to the beta.
- Adjusting the brightness of images is a very good point. I forwarded this to our product team. Until we have this implemented, You could do this easily in pre-processing, though. Of course, this would mean some manual work for you, but with the time our assistants save you, you still should be faster than using other tools
- You can adjust the opacity for annotations already. When you click on the pen next to a class name, you can edit the class’ color and its opacity when you click on the arrow next to the rectangle:
- Also, your last point is a good one. I forwarded it to our product team as well. But again, you could solve the issue with a workaround: You could create two different projects; one for the classes which our assistants should be trained for, and one for the other ones. As long as the filenames are the same in both projects, you could merge the two JSONs you get after exporting your annotations. You’ll need to do some manual post-processing, but it still using Hasty should save you some time overall, taking the speed you gain from our assistants into consideration.
Generally speaking, how are our assistants working out for you? Are they producing good results? Did you pick up that they’re constantly retrained and improve over time?
Thanks again for your feedback, and I hope that my answer could help you.
Have a good Sunday,
