Tag a photo


 1 (required) Picture_ID Photo ID.  This can be obtained from the many *PIC commands
 2 (required) Text* Tag Target.  This can take on several values:
  • =me will tag yourself in the photo
  • A numeric value will be interpreted as a user ID of the tag target
  • An *exact* match to a friend's name will tag that friend
  • Any other value will just Tag the photo as text (not a link)
 3 (optional) Integer (1-100) Tag X Co-ordinate. 1 is far left, 100 is far right.
 4 (req'd if 3) Integer (1-100) Tag Y Co-ordinate. 1 is top, 100 is bottom.

See the syntax page and the parameter defaults page for information on setting your default parameters.




See the general preferences page for a list of preferences that apply to all (or most) commands.


  • Technically, (0,0) is the top left not (1,1) but the value of 0 is reserved for specifying the 'default' setting.
  • TAGPIC requires extended PUBLISH permissions: click (here) to grant fbcmd the PUBLISH permissions
