The Fotki search engine uses photo tags when you or someone else is searching for a particular topic of interest. If a photo's tag matches the searcher's request, the photo comes up in the search results.

For instance, a photo of Balrog can have such tags as "Balrog", "Tolkien", "fantasy", some date, etc. In fact, choice of a tag has no limits: one can describe anything with them.

You may assign any photo any number of various tags and easily manage them.

Search by photo tags is executed through the "Photo Tags" page and can be done two ways, depending on whether you know which tag you are looking for or not.
