Face-taging now also in Flickr

I started using Flickr as the service where I show off my photos not too long ago. I liked the simplicity of it and the ability to integrate the photos into my site without any problems. Feature-wise Flickr is minimalistic at first but the more one work with the service, the more one find that can be done to organize and show off your work in a good way. And now it got just a bit better.

Face taged in photo and also a small list of persons above the tags in the lower right part.

Face-taging in Flickr is just as simple as adding a regular tag, and to be completly honest they are almost the same thing. What do differ a face-tag from a regular tag is that faces are beeing organized and linked to profiles which makes it possible to also list pictures of specific people. You will also be notified when someone tag your face in a photo and you have the ability to remove all tags for yourself in all photos at Flickr if you identify that they are beeing missused. It is also configurable wheter it should be possible to tag your face in photos and who should be able to do so.

Add face-tag

Adding a face-tag is just as adding a regular tag.

All in all this was a nice new feature which is not very new or inovative but still good to have in a otherwise very good photo-sharing site. Keep the good things coming Flickr!
