Photobucket, the free media-sharing Web site for uploading and sharing, and linking and finding photos, videos, and graphics has introduced a new tagging feature for photos.
Photobucket is a unit of News Corp's Fox Interactive Media. The new tagging feature allows users to label a particular person or object within the uploaded file. Moreover, users can also link the file to other external sites for further reference.
Basically, tagging allows the authour to organise media files with the help of multiple words that describe them the best.
Before the introduction of this feature, Photobucket allowed users to search by headlines. So many a times, users looking for a monument called 'Hawa Mahal in Jaipur' would not find it because the photo was titled 'Hawa Mahal in Pink City'.
Jaipur is also known as the Pink City but the search mechanism would not recognise it as the photo was not tagged with the word.
Tagging will now allow users to add both Jaipur and Pink City to the photo. Similarly, users will also be able to add a tag to a particular person or object in the photo.
Moreover, if users insert a photo from Photobucket into some other site, the tags and the attached links will automatically follow there.
