Blog Post & Tips: How to Collect Similar Images with Tag Groups

  • DZM by DZM admin

    Hi zooites!

    I've come to realize lately that one of the more useful features of the current generation of Talk is not very well-advertised or widely used. Certainly nobody's fault here... I myself didn't fully understand it until just the other day!

    With "tag group" collections, also called "live" collections or "keyword" collections, you can create a collection that is automatically populated with all of the images containing a certain hashtag. This is a great way to locate tagged images without having to rely on the (currently rather buggy) search system.

    In case there's anyone else out there who was unaware of this feature, or who has never tried using it, I've put together this blog post explaining what tag groups are and how to use them. I hope you find it helpful!

    Let me know if anyone has any more questions on this topic! 😃

    This is a great feature, which I have already used to create a few collections.

    It is pity that "or" statements are not possible in defining Tag Groups. This would make it easier to collect similar tags with different spellings or punctuation. For example (#punch-through or #punchthrough).

    I wish that were a feature, too. If auto-generated collections are a thing in the next Talk, I will lobby very, very hard for "or" statements.

    However, it is likely that there will be a more advanced and user-friendly method for making collections from hashtags! 😃
