All About Jazz Tip: Tagging Your Photos

SOURCE: Published:
Tags are an essential part of the All About Jazz gallery and are the primary means by which your images are found.

Follow these useful tips when tagging your images:

It's best to tag all images with any combination of the following information: musician name, venue name, event name, photographer name, city name. Photos tagged with a city name will appear on the city's Jazz Near You page. e.g. philadelphia.jazznearyou.com

There is no limit to the number of tags you can associate with an image. Just separate them with commas.

A tag is limited to 32 characters. A-Z, 0-9, or spaces. No special characters, no accented characters. Everything is converted to lower-case.

If you are a musician, and upload images from your musician profile page, AAJ will tag your images with your name for you.

This is a jazz website, so please don't include tags like “jazz" or “jazz image" or “jazz band." Avoid overly-vague tags.

Do not use a famous person like Miles Davis to tag your images. That only makes finding Miles Davis images more difficult for others.

You can tag several images at once from your Manage Images page.

If you haven't tagged your previously uploaded images, please tag them now.
