Download the Taggad app for photographers

Make sure that you have the correct version of the photo tagging and upload app installed on your mobile device and that you hardware setup is compatible with the event you will be shooting.

Log in as official event photographer

Every event has a unique login password. Every photographer has a unique username (e-mail address). Before sending any photos to the event, make sure you are logged in to the correct event.

Sync your camera clock with the event timer

The Taggad app uses visual identification in combination with data from the event time-keeper to achieve fast and accurate tagging of participants in the photos. Therefore you should always make sure you camera clock is in sync with the time-keeper of the event.

Camera settings

Only jpg photos are analyzed and published by the Taggad app. Bare in mind that full resolution photos are much larger and slower to upload than what is needed for most events. Check the recommended file size with the photo leader for each event.

Select photo point

In order to create at well structured photo publishing services from the event photos, each event has a pre-defined set of photo point. Make sure you have selected the correct photo point before sending photos to the app.  

Select offset

At some events the participants wear visual markers (QR-codes) on their bodies for individual tagging. In most cases, this is not the only source of personal identification. As a complementary tagging method, or when QR-codes are not used, the event’s timing stations are used as input for the tagging algorithms, Therefore, select the timing offset of your photo point in relation to the closest timing station. -30 seconds means you are taking photos ~30 seconds before to participants are passing the selected timing station, +20 seconds means you are shooting 20 after they pass the timing station.

Connect your camera to your phone

A automatic, fast and reliable flow of photos from your camera to the device with the Taggad app is crucial for a successful delivery. The faster the flow from camera to the app, the more LIVE and valuable our photo services become to our customers. Connecting cameras with phones can (or cannot) be done in a number of ways. Check your hardware and test the photo-flow well in advance before any event. Some, but not all, connection methods are mentioned and discussed here.   

Start tagging

When your camera-to-phone flow is set up and the app settings are in place you start the tagging in the app. When tagging is activated ALL photos that are sent to the app are published LIVE. So make sure to take any test photos before tagging is started. You can always stop tagging whenever you want.

Take photos

When tagging is activated it’s time do you what you came for, take great photos! Enjoy! 

Stop tagging

When you have finished taking photos on your photo point, or if you want to take a break, you stop the tagging process. After the tagging process is stopped, no new photos are analyzed or published by the app.
