most likely so u can search ur pics
#2
So they're grouped.

but surely you have to remember how you have tagged all of the photos and you may have 1000's - am I missing something?

You usually have a list of the tags that you have used.
#5
You tag your photos with a number of keywords, which then allows for you and/or other people to search your photographs for a specific one or specific ones. So if you're looking for photos of the time you went to Tijuana, Mexico to see a donkey show, then there's a good chance you tagged them with "Tijuana", "Mexico", "Donkey" etc and thus searching for one or all of those keywords will take you to them.

great explanation- thanks

And don't forget tagging works in much the same way on this site...(if you look at the tags on yours first post)

It should do, but it doesn't.

They are grouped together, but there is no way of being reminded of what you tagged them with.

If only!!
But you can use them a bit for fav threads if you tag them ( with the same tag).

Agree you have no list of tags you used, but I guess it's going to work a bit different for the purpose of this site. But out of interest what else doesn't work with them?, seems to work ok when I use them.


The search function doesn't search tags, which is another flaw.

As also mentioned above, can be useful to 'bookmark' threads by adding a tag only you will use, then you can find all your fav posts (useful for deals).


You have to remember the tag you used, and you don't have the "exclusiveness" of a tag, so you can't be sure someone else won't use it.

True, but as I said, you have to remember the tag you used.


Sorry, deleted my post, as having had another look i'm not so sure they work the way they use to.
