4/18/14 – I was informed by this company they are NOT hiring right now. I will try to update when and if that changes, thanks!
I’ve been following a thread at Work Place Like Home regarding a photo tagging opp. You can read the thread yourself here, but it does appear that people are reporting getting paid. From what I’ve been reading, you do have to take a test to get approval to do this and not everyone is passing, so the test may be a little challenging. BUT the pay is hourly ($8 an hour) and the work sounds basic enough — just describing objects in photographs. I also get the feeling that this is just an extra money thing because work may not always be available, so if you have another job, I would hang on to it.
Here is some information from the job listing:

The job posting is still up, but there is a chance that they will have all the workers they need very soon and take down their posting. It originally appeared on Craigslist a month or so ago and has since been deleted from there. Just wanted to throw this out there in case anyone was interested!
