The challenges of searching the increasingly large collections of digital images which are appearing in many places mean that automated annotation of images is becoming an important task. We describe our participation in the ImageCLEF 2010 Visual Concept Detection and Annotation Task. Our approach used only the textual features (Flickr user tags and EXIF information) to perform the automatic annotation. Our approach was to explore the use of different techniques to improve the results of textual annotation. We identify the drawbacks of our approach and how these might be addressed and optimized in further work.
