Image Tagging

Give users valuable insight into your photo library by tagging images with meaningful and descriptive keywords/tags.

  • Use Cases
  • Media Sources
    Media source companies looking to sell stock images to customers face the mission critical task of tagging their large libraries of photos with meaningful meta data. Descriptive image tagging makes both internal and external search simple – effectively increasing sales of digital assets.
  • Online Publishers
    Online publishers who use images to supplement their content can drastically increase organic search traffic through image tagging. With a wealth of image content not immediately searchable, image tagging adds value to your site by exposing images to users and search engines through meaningful and descriptive keywords.
  • How It Works
  • Step One: Import Images for Review
    Our Client Solutions Team works with you to import and manage your existing library of images as well as newly generated content on an ongoing basis through our API integration.

  • Step Two: Distribution
    Once your images are imported, we distribute them to our prequalified, US-based workforce that has passed a series of qualification tests to prove competency and accuracy in image tagging. With a shared understanding of language, our image taggers focus on accurately identifying image characteristics as well as identifying the categories under which the images fall.Our image taggers are trained to follow rigid, client-specific guidelines in several categories, including:
  • Type
    Category (abstracts, patterns, black and white, animals, color splash, children, city lights, Christmas, sports, funny, travel, illustrations, love, vintage and more)
  • Style and Quantity
    • Dominant Colors
    • Style

    • Camera Angles (eye level, high angle, low angle, bird’s eye, slanted, etc.)

  • Step Three:Distribution
    Each image submitted for tagging is typically sent through a quality assurance workflow where the same task is assigned to multiple workers. Our platform manages and monitors quality in real time by filtering out spam and sending incorrect judgments to additional trusted workers for further review.
  • Step Four:Results Complete
    Once our workforce is finished tagging images, you receive accurate and descriptive tags in your desired format from our Client Solutions Team.Optimizing your online image content for marketing and search purposes is a mission critical task for both media and online publishers. Tagging image content markets your digital assets effectively with images that are easily found by users (and search engines) through improved contextual search results.
