Smart Tags

The Eyefi Cloud Smart Tag feature automatically categorizes your photos without you having to lift a finger. When you upload photos to Eyefi Cloud, Smart Tag technology works by scanning your photos for their content and using an algorithm to automatically apply tags to your photos. Once Eyefi Cloud applies Smart Tags, you can view, search and share your photos already grouped by their content.

Additionally, the Smart Tags feature uses primarary and secondary tags. Certain phrases like "Animals," "Events," or "Food and Drink" are all primary tags. Secondary tags are associated with primary tags, like types of animals (dogs, cats, or horses, to name a few), types of events (sports, nightlife, or vacations), and types of food and drink (barbeque, cakes, or wine). Each primary tag category has numerous secondary tags to better organize your photos.

Turn Smart Tags On or Off

Smart Tags are turned off by default for new Eyefi Cloud memberships. You can enable and disable Smart Tags with the following steps:

  1. Log in to the Eyefi Web app
  2. Click your account icon
  3. Click Account
  4. Click Change your Smart Tag preferences
  5. Click Enable Smart Tags

Note: When you enable Smart Tags for the first time, it may take some time for Eyefi Cloud to process your photo library. However, any photos you upload to Eyefi Cloud after turning on Smart Tags will be processed right away.
