How Image Tagging Works?

Imagga Image Auto Tagging technology enables automatic assignment of relevant tags or keywords to vast collections of images and videos. A core capability of Imagga’s computer vision offering, the image tagging deep learning model analyzes the pixel content of visuals, extracts their features and detects objects of interest. The model is trained with more than 3000 objects from daily life and can be additionally trained with customer-specific tags for utmost precision.

Auto Tagging explanation

Automated image tagging is a cost-effective and time-saving solution for companies operating with massive amounts of image content often coming from different sources. Incoherent meta-data or even worse – lack of any metadata is a major challenge for companies for which image searchability is business-critical. Imagga Image Tagging API solves this challenge efficiently.
