Is it possible to tag or index files and photos in Dropbox?

Helpful | Level 5

Has DB finally come up with a way to TAG or INDEX files and photos?   It makes ZERO sense to have to copy a photo multiple times to  different folders and label that individual folder.   It would make more sense to be able to just tag / index it like:  #mark #vacation #New York.   This way I could just search #mark and pull up every photo Mark ever appears in or search for #New York and pull up every picture ever taken with the tag New York.

 

Well?  Has Drop box done this YET?

It would save DB so much on physical storage space as users would not have to have multiple copies of the same photo.

No they havent.

 

Also, it doesnt cost them any more to have the file uploaded once or a million times - they only store it once due to how hashcheck works Even though we dont see it it also works across accounts as well!
