Crowdsourced tagging tool makes photos searchable

ga('send', 'event', 'Life Hacks', 'article', 'article-industry-impression', {nonInteraction: true});

It’s not much good having a vast collection of photos if you can’t organize and search through them in an intuitive way, but tagging capabilities have so far proven beyond the scope of most photo sharing websites. And while digital photography makes it very easy to shoot thousands of images, most digital photographers lack the time and patience to tag those individual photos. Tagcow aims to provide a convenient solution by automatically tagging users’ photos with descriptive keywords that can later be used to find them. Tapping into the power of crowdsourced labour, Tagcow uses Amazon.com’s Mechanical Turk to tag photos, applying a combination of human taggers and computer technology. Photos are typically tagged within 24 to 48 hours of submission.
