AI Auto-tagging on Assets (Auto-Tagging)

This article explains the auto-tagging feature, the main use case, and how it can be set up in your Media Library.

Updated over a week ago

Auto-tagging is a way to generate suggested tags and categorize your assets in an intelligent manner. AI-based Auto-tagging reduces the amount of work needed to properly tag assets in the platform. The Auto-tagging service is based on Amazon (AWS) Rekognition.

(There is a separate help article describing Metadata and (manual) Tags.)

When you set up the feature, it will thoroughly analyze each asset. Suggested metadata tags are then displayed based on the results.

Please note that the file formats supported by the auto-tagging feature are: .png, .jpg, .tif, .tiff, .jpeg, .mov, and .mp4.

By following the steps described below, you’ll be able to use the AI auto-tagging feature to enhance the assets in your libraries.

Setting up Auto-tagging when Creating a New Media Library

When creating a new Media Library under ‘New’ in the top-right corner of your Libraries section, you’ll be instructed to name and choose a Workflow template, or link it to an available Guidelines. You’ll have the option to activate the auto-tagging toggle in the same modal.

Auto-tagging in Existing Media Libraries

To start using auto-tagging in your Media Library, you would need to activate it and also generate it for the existing assets. This can be done by clicking on your Media Library Settings on the Power Bar and then toggle to activate the Automated Tagging field under the Suggested Tags section.

The auto-tagging feature should begin working after a few minutes. Generated tags will appear under the ‘Metadata’ section in ‘Suggested tags’ in the lower information panel within the asset viewer.

When clicking on the ‘Suggested Tags’ you will discover newly generated tags. The recommended tags are easy to accept or reject. If you find there are some that don’t actually fit with the image or video, you’re able to easily eliminate them from the list by clicking to deselect them.

If you deselect a tag by mistake, you can recover it by clicking on the tag once again. However, if you refresh, all the unchecked tags will be completely erased.

Whenever the feature of auto-tagging is switched off, the suggested tags will not appear on the right-side panel.

Understanding Auto-tagging Notifications

"There are no tags assigned yet"

This status will appear when the feature is enabled, but tags were not yet generated for the asset.

"In progress"

When the feature is enabled and tags are being generated, then the ‘Suggested Tags’ section will have a label saying that the tags are ‘in progress' and therefore being generated.

‘Suggested tag generation for this asset has failed..’

When the feature is enabled and the tag generation was not successful for some reason, then an error message saying "Suggested Tag generation for this asset has failed” will appear. In this case, don’t hesitate to contact us:  

When a format is not supported, the ‘Suggested Tags’ section will not be displayed.

In case you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team.
