Twitpic is now letting users organize their images by event, including description information and tags for each photo in the group.
Similar to a Flickr set, Twitpic’s Events feature lets users organize, define and showcase their snaps quickly and easily, all while making the discovery process easier for both humans and web crawlers. It’s a perfect way to group images for a service that’s tailor-made for on-the-go, event-focused users.
If you’re ready to start playing with this new feature, simply go to your timeline, choose a photo from an event and go to that photo’s page. On the lower right side of the screen, you’ll see two links, one for tags and one for events. When you click on the “events” link, you’ll see a drop-down box where you can create a new event or add the photo to an existing event.
When creating a new event, you can give it any name or description you like. Once you’ve added a photo or two to the event, your event will have a link you can use to share that entire group of images with the world.
This is a great feature for those of us who go to conferences or parties, on vacations, outdoors or anywhere else for our photogenic adventures.
