"Software for tagging photos"


US
          

Hello all,

I need something that will tag people in old scanned family photos just like the tagging that you can do in Facebook.

Can anyone recommend something?

Thanks,

Beck

Hi Beck,

since nobody else hasn't answered yet, I do. I think the tags in Facebook - as far as I understand them - are not included in the images but stored separately. To store them in the file requires certain features from the file format and I'm not sure if a JPEG file format, for example, can hold such data. However, it does store some data.

Perhaps I misunderstood you. Could you elaborate a little what kind of information you would like to tag?

Best regards,
Kari

"Tagging" an image is not very clear. You can add a caption, keywords and values pairs, or there are various software products like Picassa or Nikonians Annotate that can select and area of an image and add associate a comment with that section. Picassa can even search for faces and add name to the faces.I do not know if the area marking and comments marking techniques are unique among products.

Thanks for the replies guys.

What I'm doing is scanning old family photos. I want to be able to click on the faces in the pics and assign names - like Uncle Joe, Grandpa Goober, etc.

And I'd like to share these pics with other family members after I tag the cast of characters.

Since it it not standardized, then you and your family members will need the same software and you will need to be able to export the images with the tags.

OK, so Picassa or Nikonians Annotate will do that?

Thanks, Beck
