Topix Tags Photos

by skrenta at 3:14 AM

Thanks to a feed from the Knight Ridder/Tribune News Wire, Topix.net is now categorizing news photos based on their caption text into our 30,000 geographic and 300k+ subject feeds. We're hosting the full size photos, along with zippy thumbnail index pages.

Check them out in sections like US, World, Entertainment, Sci/Tech, and Sports. Photos can be categorized into any Topix category, but the major sections will roll-up the contents of their sub-sections so they're good places to browse.

Currently we have about 20,000 photos categorized onto our site, but we're pulling the live feed and categorizing new ones as soon as they come in so more and more will be added to our category channels over time.
