The spaces were removed in the Tags in the returned photos from PhotosSearch. For example, if the tags are "blue flowers sky" and "blooming funny", the tags that we can get is "blueflowerssky" and "bloomingfunny". Could anyone help solve this? One work around is to use the PhotoID from PhotosSearch and then use PhotosGetInfo to get the original/raw tags. However, this is very slow if we process a large number of photos.

Thank you very much in advance.

Just tried to search answers from the Web and found this page: http://www.wackylabs.net/2006/07/flickrnet-api-library-203/
Looks like in an early version there is a Photo.RawTags field, but now it is gone in v3.4 and v3.5. Now we can only find Photo.Tags, in which spaces were removed and thus cannot be used.

Flickr doesn't return the raw tags in a call to flickr.photos.search, only in flickr.photos.getInfo or flickr.tags.getListPhoto.

The Photo.RawTags was badly named, as it was actually the clean tags, not the raw ones. It has since been renamed.
