Before anything else, I'd like to apologize if my english is not the best.

I'd like to suggest an option where we can have study vectors such as Image question → Kanji/Kana answer. I feel like it'd be a great help for those like me who are visual learners and I know this might not work for new learned words, but i wanted to try suggesting something. Sorry if this was talked about before and it's a work in progress or has been rejected. (っ- ‸ - ς)

You could do this for words that have images (most don’t), but many of the images in the renshuu dictionary don’t give you a very good idea of what the word means.

I used to like Drops because of the image based quizzes, but soon I found it frustrating because similar words would use near identical images, which were arbitrary and difficult to remember, and because the vocabulary there was so limited.

I would *love* to add this in the future, but ポールおじちゃん points out the biggest issue - ambiguity. I think the best way to overcome this is to have multiple images for the same image. If you have one picture of orange juice, it may be "orange juice", "cup", "orange", "drink", etc., but if it was 3-4 pictures of orange juice, the ambiguity would be decreased greatly.

We currently have about 19,000 pictures on renshuu, but they cover 17,000 words. That means that at most, 2000 words have more than one image.

Depending on how we grow, though, it's definitely something I'd love to try to expand! We've done image collecting activities with the community in the past, but it can be really hard for us to validate all of those images (and make sure they are valid, appropriate, good quality, etc.).

What does “multiple images for the same image” mean?

Whoops! Multiple images for each word.

You're right, ambiguity would be a big problem! I didn't think of it before because I was thinking of it as if I would've chosen the image. I hope someday we can get something like this and it works out well.
