Editing Annotation Boxes

What Wildbook should this feature be in?
Zebra wildbook- although I image users of any Wildbook might find it beneficial, particularly those working on social animals.

What would you like to see?
Currently, you can manage annotations by adding or removing them from an image. I think it would be helpful to also have the option of simply editing them (by which I mean resizing and/or moving the box for a particular encounter around).

How would this functionality help you?
Particularly in group pictures, the annotation boxes created during the detection process are sometimes awkwardly sized or placed- in ways that create overlap with other animals and impede the matching process. In cases where this is especially problematic, the only recourse is to create a whole new encounter, by adding a new annotation to the image, and then to go back and delete the old one. While this sounds simple enough it involves quite a lot of steps and can actually be pretty tricky to navigate.
I think it would be really nice to be able to just edit an annotation so it better represents the target zebra.
