Trying something new with images

VICKSBURG, MISS. — I’ve been storing my images in a Gallery installation for quite some time, but I’ve decided to experiment with the built-in WordPress functionality. I’ve just converted my Sword-billed Hummingbird post to the new system. When you click on a picture, you’ll be taken to a page with a larger version and (bonus!) a comment box. I’m not finished with (or committed to) the process, so let me know if you have any comments. One thing that seems to be missing is the ability to tag photos. Has anyone figured this out?

Update: So far so good. I found a plugin called Media Tags to handle tagging. Not as ideal as having native support, but it works for now.

Also, if you want your picture to appear in the comments, all you have to do is create an avatar linked to your email address with Gravatar. Otherwise, you get a pretty geometric design (an improvement, I hope, over the bland gray figure).
