Blue Ringed Octopus...Great Barrier Reef
Today we are releasing a number of updates for the Image Library.  

The big news is that we’re now making the shared images in the image library available for everybody’s use.  This means anybody can dress up their post by pulling from the tens of thousands of images in the library.  There are some really wonderful images there, like all these images of wildlife I found in the image library.  Putting an image in your story is an easy and very effective way to get more readership.  We find that stories with images share much better and grab users’ attention better once they find your story.  If you see an image in the library, it's available for your use.  

We’ve also overhauled the search so that you can find the image you are looking for quickly.  Now that we have more than 70,000 images in the library, many are feeling the need to search on specific attributes, say who uploaded the image.  Or, try filtering on staff_uploaded to find quality images purchased for use on Daily Kos.  Open the image library and click into the search box for a list of attributes you can use to refine your search.  

Also part of this release:

  • You can now edit the attribution on multiple images at once.  So, if you are uploading a batch of images from one source you can get proper attribution on them all quickly.
  • Deleting an image works again.
  • Few other small fixes.
  • Image Library is now linked from everyone's welcome back box.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
