What is Click Witchey

Click Witchery is an interactive media platform which allows for more complete visual communication. Click Witchery presentations are created by highlighting an area of a graphic and linking this with graphics or other media. When the viewer views the presentation clicking once will show the sub graphic beside the parent graphic. If there are no further level to the sub graphic double clicking will cause a popup window to appear and if there are further levels the sub graphic will become the main graphic in the presentation. The viewer can then click on the hotspots and see further levels.
