Step 4: Add Some Images

Add some images by clicking the project dropdown and selecting “add images”. Once inside the image upload page, upload from your local computer or by taking some snapshots from your local webcam. Once you have uploaded a few images, click the orange button “tag images” to advance to the annotation stage. Don’t go crazy adding hundreds of images on your first run. Keep your first project simple by including only a few images, you can always go back and add more images to your project if needed.

Step 5: Tag Your Images

Tag your images by first creating a few tags. For this example we will create two tags, “Open USB Drive” and “Closed USB Drive”. Once these tags are created, we can drag and drop tags by simply clicking and dragging on the image. Complete this process for all the remaining images and then click save.
