Tagging and You

Meta what? We need your tags! Here's the how and the why.

There are literally thousands of Lomographs being uploaded to our Photos page but most of them are undocumented – meaning untagged. This poses as a problem because photos are unsearchable if there are no tags. Your photos won’t show up on tags, cameras, “films”/photos/films or locations page. Even more, they wont even show up on Photos but merely in your Homes. The community will only have a chance of seeing your work by clicking random photos, but that’s all they will be, random!

If you want others to marvel at your work – then we highly recommend that you make sure that you fill in the meta data. We recommend a minimum of 3 tags, the camera used, the film, and the location the photo was shot at. Please do note that from now on these will be a requirement for rumble entries as well.

    Why do some tags not shown up in the albums although they were all correctly filled up in the lab??
