Video: Tag Documents On The Mac With TagIt

The good and the bad thing about tagging documents on the Mac is that there are a bunch of different ways to do it.

If you want to get into tagging, I always recommend that you use software that uses the OpenMeta standard. That way, different applications can all access the same tags.

A free and easy way to get started tagging documents is TagIt by Ironic Software, the company that developened OpenMeta in the first place. This video shows how to do it.

View the video below, or click here to watch it on YouTube. If you are able to, I recommend that you watch it with HD turned on.

I use Tagit because I don't know of a more simple and convenient tool for tagging documents that is free. I specifically use it instead of iPhoto to organise my photos. This way I can keep my photos synced between Windows Mac and Linux – I use all three.

The main problem with Tagit is that openmeta data is not useful to Windows and Linux. I recently wrote a blog post about how I am dealing with this – by writing bash scripts to duplicate the data across formats. I included a script in my post.
I expect I'll add another soon. I hope someone will come up with a more user friendly solution of making photo organising more cross-platform compatible.
