In that case I'll just put all the favourites in my tags:
sunset, robin, gerbera, landscape, scenic, puffin, stitchwort. Should get found in every single search then Smile)

Yeah, that's why I spent a week developing this. So you can claim "first-to-find-a-bug" prizes Wink

BTW "IE issue" should be fixed now

That's weird. I've just typed in "East Anglia" as a tag search and only my own images appeared. Either that means I'm the only person in East Anglia who's used those words as tags....or I've been doing something I shouldn't have!

It's a terrific facility. I'm off now to search for "Snowdonia"...to get some inspiration for my hols.

Well done, Tomas.

As I said - not many photos is tagged. Be patient. This is mostly user-run system and it depends on you guys how usefull (or not) it is

Tom, my point seems to have been lost in the flow...

Can you arrange things such that a search on two adjacent tags e.g. "x y" yields a subset of a search on "x,y", instead of being two independent searches?

Hi everyone,

Tom has spent a lot of time and effort in developing this - and it is still a work in progress, with lots more which can be added if the tagging is used correctly.

Cheryl, I know you were only joking but it has highlighted a serious point we do need to make though:

If this is to be a success for everyone there is no point in just adding popular tags to your photos. These tags will be deleted, the member will be prevented from using and being a part of the keyword search and it will simply spoil it for everyone else.

Thanks for your comments and input so far, and well done Tom! Smile

ok..it is hard to explain but let's say we have "new york". If you put it together we know clearly that your photo is related to New York. If you put it separately "New, York". It can be related to York in the UK as well. There would be many other good examples but believe me that I spent a lot of time planning this and this is probably the best approach we could have chosen. Every approach has its disadvantages though. I can post some articles here about problems connected with tag phrasing and searching if anyone's interested Smile Our approach will prove useful when there are lots of photos tagged and we will start doing more operations such as looking for synonyms, plurals and similar words...

Stay tuned!! Grin

Will it be possible to tag the images when you upload them? Just a thought, one less link to click on.

I'm with Tom on this issue - his example is quite clear as to why.

Take other examples, 'Buckingham Palace' , 'Eifell Tower'

Would you want it to return say a portrait of Eifell and a tower or as I assume the Paris landmark.

In the example joolsb used I would suggest 'Jurassic Coast' as this is a generic term for this location and 'coast' as two separate tags.

Advanced searches - A OR B AND NOT LIKE C is probably overkill at the moment for this site.

yup - I can confirm that Tom, thanks.

Bug hunting of the kind you have in hand can be a soul destroying pastime - I think I'll stick to my own kind! Smile

Its looking good though Tom and you've certainly struck a chord with your "customers" - I was amazed at the speed the "Tag Target" was reached
