You have to sign up for this service, but it's free. Once you do they give you code to put in your website so that you can tag elements in the images on your site.

Tags are small bubbles that appear when you touch them with your mouse, and can contain a description and a hyperlink. This can be used to take users deeper into your site. This will be useful for news images which you want to tag based on the content in the images.

I can easily see how this can be used on many types of stories.
