How to Tag Photos on Flickr


Flickr allows you to share with family and friends. After adding them to this site, you can organize them by date. Later, when you need to view certain photos, you can simply bring up photos taken by a certain date or a word designated by a tag. What are tags? Tags are keywords that help you find photos. On Flickr, you can assign up to seventy-five tags to each photo or video. Adding a tag to photos is quite simple.

  • Bring up a photo that you have uploaded to Flickr. Make sure that you click on the photo to enlarge it.

  • Click on “add a tag”, which is located to the right of the picture. You can choose from tags that already exist by clicking on the words “choose from your tags”.

  • Type a tag that you would like to associate with the photo in the box and click on "Add." Make the tag word appropriate for the picture. For example, a picture of your dog Josh should have a tag of “Josh”. If Josh is at the beach, then add a tag called “beach”.

  • Type more than one tag to each photo. This will give you more options when searching for a photo. For example, if Josh the dog and Mindy are in a photo, type the words Josh, dog and Mindy as separate tags. This way, if you need to search any one of these, all you need to do is type in that word and the photos will come up.

  • Try searching through your photos. Scroll down on the search bar and click on “Your Photostream”. In the search bar that pops up, type in a tag word for a photo that you would like to look up. Notice that photos with that tag pop up.
