Do you want to add tags automatically to your images and galleries? Sometimes you may want your photos to be tagged automatically, so it saves time for you. In this article, we will share how to add automatic image tagging in WordPress.

By default, WordPress images and photo galleries don’t have the feature to add tags automatically. However, the Envira Gallery plugin connects with the image tagging software from Imagga to add automatic image tagging to your site.
Adding Automatic Image Tagging

To access this addon, you must have Envira Plus license or higher.

Upon activating the Addon, you should go to Envira Gallery » Settings. In the Tags tab, you need to check mark Imagga: Enable Auto Tagging.
