How to Link Slideshows to Scrapbook Layouts

You can use a Microsoft tag on your layout to link your scrapbook page to an online slideshow - what a great way to share even more photos with your friends and family! And creating a Microsoft tag is quick, easy, and free.

  1. Go to
  2. Click on MY TAGS, then TAG MANAGER.
  3. Log in using your Microsoft Live ID.
  4. Click "Create a Tag."
  5. Give your tag a name and choose your tag type.
  6. Fill in the requested information - URL or text, start/end dates, etc.
  7. Click on the Download button.
  8. Choose your image size and file format.

Just like that, you're ready to use your custom Microsoft Tag. Add it to your layout, include it on a card. When scanned with a mobile smart phone, the tag will take you or loved ones directly to a website set up to share your photos and videos with family and friends.

The tag on my layout goes to this slideshow of my daughter's first year. What will you link to with your tags?
