    Hey guys, I've been racking my brain over this for the past couple of days. Right now I use IFTTT linked to several social accounts, one of my recipes it a dropbox to tumblr photo post. The recipe works great, except for tagging. All my images uploaded this way all have the same generic tags. What I want is to set specific tags for each photo. I see in IFTTT that it does allow you to add a tag of the filename (without extension) which is close to what I want, but you can't have files with the same name. Ultimately it turns into name, name(2), name(3) etc.. this is frustrating because if people click the tag, they wont see any posts related to the topic. I'm wondering if there is some kind of work-around for this? Perhaps I need to loop it through another recipe, I just don't know what it is yet.

    Ideally I want something like this.. Let's just take football teams as an example. I want to bulk upload files like Steelers1.jpg, Steelers2.jpg, Broncos1.jpg, Broncos2.jpg, Raiders1.jpg, Raiders2.jpg etc.. (but having more than 2.. dozens of each team name), uploaded to dropbox then posted on tumblr and tagged accordingly, Steelers, Broncos, Raiders (without the numbers). I hope I am making sense. Finding a solution to this problem would help us all a lot when it comes to getting targetted followers.

    Let's try and figure this out.

    Thanks.
