The Church has a new service project you can do from the comfort of your own home! Easy and fun, it is designed to help organize the Church’s vast media library.
According to an article on LDS.org, the Church has been collecting more than million high-quality images in its media library database over the last several years. However, many of them are not properly titled or categorized, making it difficult for members to find what they need. Members around the world use the media library to find images to use for lessons, family home evenings, blogs, and gospel-sharing efforts worldwide.
What It Is
The process the Church would like help with is referred to as photo tagging. You use a special website to look at photos and provide information. You won’t be the only one adding information, so don’t worry. What you submit helps ensure accuracy and completeness! Each image is reviewed by at least five volunteers. This process is important because all of the search information you provide helps members find the perfect image faster.
How It Works
