Alternatively to movie format, use slideshows: Women in Korea (PPT), Colonial Korea (PPT), Modernizing Korea (PPT).
2. Discussing with students (image + question prompt): PDF includes pop-up annotation with suggested answers.
3. Contributing (you add location, names, event; or pose questions): http://picasaweb.google.com/oldphotos.jpkr
4. Browsing rapidly entire groups of images: "browse-rapidly" link at left
