Find yourself on Flickr through tagging

Secretly its what most people do first when they come to a service like Flickr: they search for themselves. To see if anyone has uploaded a picture with you on it. For example the Flickr-feed of A4U Expo was without a doubt searched through by people looking for themselves (and they probably found Dave Naylor ;) ).

That will now become a lot easier with a new feature which Flickr has launched: People in Photos. That enables you to highlight people you've photographed and tag them.

You can draw a face boundary on the photo, as you do with a note, and add their names. People in Photos has been wired into your your Recent Activity, so you’ll always be up to date with who’s added you to a photo or added other members to your photos.


For privacy reasons you can even set your own preferences, including who can add you to photos and who can add people to photos you've shared. And off course you can also remove yourself entirely if you want.
