How do I use tags & captions to organize my library?

We've built a number of powerful tools that can help you organize and sort through your Picturelife library. Learn more about searching your Picturelife library by tag, caption, album, and attribute.

To tag an image or video

At this time, tagging is only enabled via your Picturelife account on the web.

  1. Login to your Picturelife account via a desktop web browser.
  2. From any grid view, select one or more photos so that they are highlighted in blue, OR
  3. Open a single photo to view it in full screen
  4. Click the left-pointing double arrows, located on the right side of the screen, to open the Info menu
  5. Find and click the blue words "Add tag" to open the tag text box
  6. Enter the tag word you want to use, and click the blue Add button

Once Picturelife has indexed the tag to your library (it takes anywhere from 10 seconds to 10 minutes, depending on server capacity at the time), you can then search your library for all pictures with that tag.
