Tagging Images

Why add tags? 

Tagging photos is a way to identify who is pictured and helps track coverage. This data is used to generate an index which lists the page(s) the person in the photo appears on. Before you start tagging images, check with your yearbook adviser to see if you should wait until they've uploaded the Portrait Database or a Student Roster. For more details, read Coverage Reporting: Where do I Begin?

While on a page, select an image and click on the Tag icon to open the Tags menu. This menu option only appears when one or more photos are selected. 

Type the name into the field and press Enter on your keyboard, to add the tag. When adding multiple tags to an image, separate the names with a comma – Julia Roberts, Anna Faris, John Travolta. 
Note: Name suggestions will appear if portraits or a student roster have been uploaded to the project or if you’ve been actively tagging images. Select the correct name and press Tab or Enter to add the tag. 

Tags assigned to the selected image are listed at the bottom of the Tags menu. 

Tags can also be added while managing photos. Navigate to Candids from Manage My Photos after clicking on the Photos panel or from the Dashboard

 

Select the image you would like to tag and click the Tag icon. The tag window opens on the right side of the screen. 

Type the name into the field and then press Enter on your keyboard to add the tag. When adding multiple tags to an image, separate the names with a comma – Julia Roberts, Anna Faris, John Travolta. 
Name suggestions will appear if portraits or a student roster have been uploaded to the project or if you’ve been actively tagging images. Select the correct name and press Tab or Enter to add the tag.

Existing tags are listed at the bottom of the tag window.
