Keyword Tags for Videos and Photos

This information only applies to you if you purchased your Website Tonight account after October 26th, 2010. How to Find Your Original Purchase Date

Did you know that Website Tonight allows you to tag photos and videos with keywords to describe and organize them? For example, lets pretend you create a new gallery for each car show that you attend. You could go through each gallery and add tags like “Corvette” or “Nissan” or “Muscle Car”. Then you can sort your images by tag, so you can select the Corvette tag and see all the Corvettes from all the car shows you’ve attended. You can even tag entire galleries at once. So if you tagged all the images and videos from each car show with their location or the name of the event you could sort them that way also. Tagging media helps you keep organized, and it also makes it easier for you to share your photos and videos. Tags display in the sidebar on the gallery home page. From there you can view all of the tags associated with your media and the number of times the tag has been used.
