Type in a tag title (place, person, item, etc...) and press ENTER to add it.
4-6 tags per image is perfect.
Common terms should be in lowercase (nature), and plural where possible (cats).
Capitalise proper nouns (people, places, titles) according to the official spelling (The Lord of the Rings).
Tags should only represent a single "thing" or concept (cars and red, but not red cars, because the search function will find the individual tags on its own).
Tags should describe what the image depicts (buildings, sunset) and should not be subjective/abstract (sexy, alternative), including opinions and stances (anti-religion, anti-atheism). If the image has text in it, "text" or "quote" is enough - no need to tag the words in it.
Special characters like symbols cannot be used.
Tags should not contain links (somedude.deviantart.com) - instead use the author/publisher's name (Some Dude) where relevant. Also, no self-promotion by creating a tag for your own alias/name - if you're famous enough to deserve a tag, someone else will have made it already!
Only create tags for things people other than you would actually search for. Think about how you'd find the image. Everyone knows who Han Solo is, but it's probably unnecessary to tag Dash Rendar in an image.
Celebrities and other figures should be tagged with their full names. Models with only the first name known should be tagged [name] (who). For Japanese names such as anime characters, use the traditional order of last name-first name (Littner Yoko).
Check your spelling, even if English is your first language! The site uses American English ("color" instead of "colour", etc.), except specific foreign names (Notre Dame).
