Using Smart Tags
Learn about Smart Tags and how to use them to easily search and filter your photos and videos in Elements Organizer.
Elements Organizer analyzes photos and videos in your catalog and automatically generates tags for them. These tags are called Smart Tags. For example, Elements Organizer generates Smart Tags such as Family, Children, Park, Beach, Smile, Ocean, Flowers, Sunset, Garden, and Soccer.
Smart Tags make it easy for you to search based on the content in your photos and videos.
Easily search photos and videos
After you import your photos and videos, Elements Organizer analyzes your media and automatically assigns relevant tags for them called Smart Tags. You can then easily filter and find photos and videos based on these Smart Tags. You can filter through the Smart Tags in the search window or type a tag in the Search bar to find related photos and videos. To access the Search window or the Search bar, click Search in the upper-right corner of the main window.
Your photos and videos are displayed in the Smart Tag panel of the Search window. These are stacked based on the people, place, events, things, and more that are in your media.
To search for a Smart Tag, type its name in the Search window. For example, to search photos and videos that include a house, type 'house' in the Search bar.
Analysis of videos for Smart Tags takes longer than it does for photos. In case you don't see a video with a relevant Smart Tag, allow Elements Organizer some more time to complete the analysis.
Edit or share a photo or video
From your search result based on Smart Tags, you can edit, share, or add the photos and videos to an album:
Click to select or double-click a photo or video to open and view it in full-screen.Note:
If you open a video from the Smart tag search result, it plays from the part that is relevant to the applied Smart Tag. You can drag the time lapse slider to the beginning of the video to view it from the start.
For example, if you search the Smart Tag "house" and a video in the search result has a house present at 2:05 minutes, the video plays from this time when you open it.
Remove a Smart Tag
If you want to remove a Smart Tag that you're not satisfied with, right-click a photo or video in the Media view. Select Remove Smart tag and then select the name of the Smart Tag that you want to remove.
For example, the following video includes several Smart Tags (family, colors, pencil, doctor). However, the Smart Tag 'doctor' is not relevant which you can remove.
