Does it actually add them or are they suggestions? If it does add them I'm quite annoyed. I never use dull, vague tags like "outdoors!"
Edited to add: It sure does add them. Go to your settings, then privacy, then look down for Autotags and edit to say fuck no do not autotag me. And then they disappear.

Please, it's too early in the morning... I can't find 'settings' in the new setup. To which menu has it fled?
Edit: Never mind. Found it now. Thank you, or I would probably never have found the darm ticky box, just muttered angrily and deleted those I saw. They always get everything wrong, and I am meticulous about tagging my photos. ('Outdoor' - why 'Outdoor' on every photo, even indoor ones. Who the *!?*& searches for 'Outdoor' in tags?)

Good to know it's possible to get rid of them - but, like lil_shepherd
, I can't find settings...
They only do it to annoy -
Click on your buddy icon.
Choose privacy & permissions.
Under Global settings (the first section) you'll see "Show autotags."
Select no to stop Flickr automatically tagging you.

Brilliant! Thank you! I'd clicked everything I could think of - but hadn't thought of the wee icon ('buddy' icon? really? oh, well...)
Flickr had got in ahead of me, and added the tag 'sheep'. Also 'outdoor' 'animal' and 'carnivore'.
Who knew you were so lucky to get back from Skye without a run-in with sheep?
Quite: it's why Hebridean wool is so special!
There must be some way to turn off that bloody auto-tagging...
is my guide in this, as in other things photographic!
I listed the steps up above. I should add I have a paid account and don't know what kind of options free accounts have, but I do hope that's one of them.

I'm sure there is a Tanith Lee novel featuring bone white, carnivorous sheep, but I cannot now remember which one.

There are carnivorous sheep in Diana Wynne Jones's Dark Lord of Derkholm, but they're not as scary as the ones you're thinking of sound!

They might have been venomous rather than carnivorous...
If I have nightmares tonight, I shall blame you...
They shoot laser beams out of the horns. That's why they curve 'round like that to have the points facing front in the end.
That is an awesome building!
What an amazing church, and story!
Wow, I did not know that Flickr did that -_- Now I'm going to have to go check and see what my photos have been tagged as.
But yeah, the famous man-eating sheep of Skye--you didn't know?! You're lucky to have approached so close and gotten away with your life!
Flickr works ceaselessly to produce new features, and I am never grateful! It's automated, so it's clearly doing something very clever - but still irritating and not helpful!
