How do I tag people in my photo?
You can tag people as you’re sharing a photo or to an existing photo. There isn’t a way to tag people in videos.
To tag people as you’re posting a photo:
After you’ve selected a photo and added effects and filters, tap Tag People from the Share screen.
Tap on someone in the photo.
Start entering their name or username and select them from the dropdown menu. If you don’t see the person you’re looking for, tap Search for a person.
