Tag Photos of Yourself in Flickr

Tag Yourself and Your Friends in Flickr Photos

First Facebook, now Flickr. The online photo site has just released a new feature: People in Photos. According to the site's blog, the feature allows you to tag other Flickr members in your photos by entering a member name or email address and adding the tag, similar to their current "notes" feature.

I'm generally not a huge fan of photo tagging — mostly because there's always the potential of being tagged in an unflattering photo (and there's always the pesky gray line of whether or not to tag a date). Luckily, Flickr feels my pain: you can choose which members are allowed to add you in photos, and who is allowed to tag people in photos you've shared. Plus, if you remove a tag of yourself from a photo, only you can re-tag the photo with your name.

The Flickr FAQ page contains more details and specifics. I'm already getting tag updates from friends in my Flickr feed — it's a great way to discover new photos of people you know.

My only complaint is that you can only tag people who have Flickr accounts.

Picasa Web Albums allows for this as well, integrated with their face recognition technology. I'm not sure if other people can tag your photos, but you can tag who people are.

i like flickr for the ability to browse through random photo streams and see cool things. i don't really care who the people are. i would not tag my flickr photos.
