    Hi all, I've been a lurker for quite a long time, and now have dived into the ecosystem and purchased a Lumia 720. Since I'm new to the OS, I have this question - can we tag a contact to a photo in the photos/gallery app? I'm not taking about Facebook tagging but tagging pictures to the contacts on my phone.

    You mean if you can make a picture a contact picture? Sorry if I tangled that up, but you can, open the contact, tap the circle with a pencil and tap on the existing photo to replace it or on the tile that says "add photo". Then choose the photo of your choice from the gallery :)

    No, that's not what I meant. I'm sorry if my question came across as confusing. What I meant was whether there is a way to tag people in a photo, so that, the gallery can be viewed by people like, say, a person xxx is in so many pictures. Another example would be to go to the People hub and select a contact, then swiping to the Photos section to see the pictures that they are tagged (present) in. Currently, only Facebook pictures get pulled in for the contact. I wonder if there is a way to have the locally stored pictures pulled in for that contact as well. Thanks for the reply though.

    I am also looking for such a feature, but as far as I know, we do not have this feature in WindowsPhone8. Need to wait and see if they can release any update to make this possible. But Microsoft is very slow in releasing the updates.
