You can assign one or more tags to images while uploading by clicking on the Advanced button in the Upload widget and fill the Add a tag input field before uploading an image.
In addition you can add, modify and remove tags for already uploaded images, by using our API. Here's our PHP API documentation regarding tags management:
It's on our road-map to support managing tags interactively through the Dashboard.
You can now manage your tags interactively through your Cloudinary 'Media library'.
Simply hover your image, click the kebab menu icon and choose "Manage" from the list of actions.
Click the Add a tag field and start typing your desired tag name, then click enter to add the tag to the list.
Repeat this to add more tags:
Click on the 'x' to remove a tag:
We now support automatic tag names completion in the Media library. Both when adding a new tag to a resource, or when searching the media library.
There are multiple API methods available to add, remove, and replace tags. There's a guide here with more information, and if you encounter any difficulties, pleas let us know: https://cloudinary.com/documentation/image_upload_api_reference#tags
I added a tag to the video file via the Cloudinary console and then searched for it. I can find the files that were uploaded with a certain tag but not the ones that had a new tag added after they were uploaded.
Thank you for your comment. It's on our to-do list.
+1 ... as above I thought that I've found the perfect solution to our image management needs but without tag maintenance Cloudinary is one feature short.
Thanks, that is helpful. But...need way to prompt/constrain through realtime tag name lookup/type-ahead...otherwise folks tend to make up tags. Hopefully coming soon?
Hi there, I have a question regarding tags.
If I upload an image with existing metadata tags, will Cloudinary adpot those tags?
Can´t find any article with a clear answer.
thanks for the response.
Is there an ETA on this feature?
+1 ... I was thinking I had found a solution to our image mgt needs but... not without tags
Please also provide a way to view lists of images at various resolutions for simple browsing
if i want to tag all my resource at the same time is there any APIs to do that?
When uploading an image to Cloudinary you can add tags on upload or update the image later with tags. We don't keep the original image tags.
Could you please share with me how you tried to search for your images?
I believe the problem results from the delay in the new tag propagating across the database. Annoying but most likely the cause.
Can you please open a support ticket here-https://support.cloudinary.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and share some more information about your cloud name, the videos you updated and the tag name you used.
I have updated some of my assets with a new tag but the search function does not find them. I tried deleting the other tags one of my videos had and keeping just one, in case that made a difference; still nothing.
What do I need to do to get the tag search working?
