Do you like a "true story"? Yes? Oh good, then this is for you:

 

A crafthauser just emailed me this morning with a concern. She was looking around the crafthaus images (of which we have close to 29K and growing!)  trying to find a piece for potential purchase. The trouble is she had difficulties finding what she was looking for because her searches in the PHOTO segments turned up empty, even though she knew the work was definitely on crafthaus.

 

Well, this is an easy nut to crack: Everyone can search for images and find what they are looking for if and only if the artist who posted the photos actually titled their work and added TAGS underneath them. You see, on crafthaus, just like on the www someone can only 'find' images if the poster provided TAGS for them. What are tags? Tags are nothing else but descriptive words that should be added to every image when posting. Those tags are e.g.: the artist's name, the title of the work, the location, the media plus every other descriptive word you can think of that someone interested in your work might look for, such as "furniture, color, mother, ..."

 

Here's an example how to tag photos on crafthaus:

1. Click on one of your photos you already uploaded to ch

2. Click on OPTIONS in the upper right corner

3. Scroll down to EDIT TAGS or EDIT DETAILS and type in your tags

4. Click SAVE. You are done!

 

If this sounds like something you should do, please do yourself a favor and start tagging. Thanks so much!
