This letter proposes a mobile application framework named erasable photograph tagging (EPT) for photograph annotation and fast retrieval. The smartphone owner's voice is employed as tags and hidden in the host photograph without an extra feature database aided for retrieval. These digitized tags can be erased anytime with no distortion remaining in the recovered photograph.
