It's annoying seeing work which hasn't been linked back to the photographer.  Any way of introducing a mechanism by which images can be 'tagged', resulting in the lovely hyperlinked willstrange (etc) beneath the piccie?  Perhaps the ability to add copyright notices could also be granted. PMing models doesn't always work.

When I saw the title I thought this was going to be about photographers not tagging models. My response to that would have been that, for me as an example, many of the people that I have worked with are not on here so cannot be tagged. Seeing what it is about I'd support the idea. Some of the people on here that I have worked with are new and do not know about tagging the photographer / MUA and what you are requesting would get around this, possibly. I presume that the model would have to confirm the tag. Otherwise you might get some people tagging themselves in tagless images falsely claiming them to be theirs.

Really? I'm not talking about commenting.

When you upload an image you can add links to both a model and an MUA.

'This section allows you to enter the names of the people involved in the shoot if they are a member of Purestorm, please enter the members user id number, not their username, which can be found on their profile and it will appear as a link to their profile, if you need to enter more than one userid in a box then seperate each one with a comma.

I think he means tagging yourself when people have forgotten to fill that section out. So the person uploading images can already do that, but the viewer can't

Yeah, you're right about the confirmation thing, though perhaps the burden should be on de-tagging, judging by the number of unread emails that people talk about (not a comment on models in particular by the way, the tagging could work both ways).

Although it would be possible to do it, I doubt that it would be done. Can't think of any other site that allows that kind of tagging. If a photographer has a good working relationship with a model then it wouldn't be difficult to simply request the tag.

Facebook does! Not quite the same I know :P Certain photographers that try to hide the name of their models won't be pleased either.

Facebook does have privacy settings in place to deny people tagging should an individual wish to. Also, a whole Facebook profile can be set to private and/or for friends only which is different to Purestorm.

Social Networking sites are different to Modelling sites.

Hence why I said, 'not quite the same'

You are right. They are different in many ways. Purestorm has paid membership (although some are free members), modelling sites are not necessarily about friendships (although friendships are made), images on social networking sites are usually candid (although some treat Facebook as a 'shop front' ), contractual agreements (model releases etc) are often signed when modelling images are created, if a photographer pays a model they are not obliged to list a model as a credit (and vice versa if a photographer is paid), Facebook has more severe censorship etc.

So to tag on Facebook is to say, 'hey, I'm in that photo!', and Purestorm is more about a working relationship which doesn't always have to have any reference to the other person/s especially if paid. Also, not all models featured by photographers are on Purestorm, and vice versa.

Are you this rude in real life? There was no call for that. ""

That was weird.  I just read this whole thread, it seemed to be a fairly mundane discussion, then out of left field comes this...    is there some hidden rudeness no-one else can see?
