Yalta summit 1945

Joseph Stalin 1878-1953

The de facto leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. Among the Bolshevik revolutionaries who brought about the Russian Revolution in 1917, Stalin was appointed General Secretary of the party's Central Committee in 1922. Through expanding the functions of his role, Stalin managed to consolidate power following the 1924 death of Vladimir Lenin, while eliminating any opposition. He held this nominal post until abolishing it in 1952, concurrently serving as the Premier of the Soviet Union after establishing the position in 1941.

Franklin D. Roosevelt 1882-1945

The 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945) and a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression and total war. A dominant leader of the Democratic Party and the only American president elected to more than two terms, he built a New Deal Coalition that realigned American politics after 1932, as his domestic policies defined American liberalism for the middle third of the 20th century.

Winston Churchill 1874-1965

A British politician, best known for his leadership of the United Kingdom during the Second World War. Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, he served as Prime Minister twice (1940–45 and 1951–55). A noted statesman and orator, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British prime minister to have received the Nobel Prize in Literature and was the first person to be made an Honorary Citizen of the United States.

You will only need to edit one image in the editor, then you will be able to use different sizes of the same image in your website as the plugin will automatically detect image dimension , scale and reposition spots on it, you can also use it with fluid images & adjust spots with window resize.

You have image with lots of details , want to point visitors to a specific part in it , you can now have a direct link to your spot like:

http://www.yoursitename.com/page.html#SpotName

by giving your spot a name in the editor. When navigating to this URL the plugin will automatically scroll the page to where the image is located & trigger spot!

Note that if the browser is already pointing to one of this links, clicking it again won't reactivate spot. if you want such effect use javascript instead, see next section
