Amazon compensates users for their time labelling images whilst a non-profit site entices users by coverting the task of labelling into a game. Google has just released its own image labelling product, so users can annotate a large database of photos online. The 'free labour scheme' is described as follows:
"Welcome to Google Image Labeler, a new feature of Google Image Search that allows you to label random images to help improve the quality of Google's image search results."
To researchers, such initiatives can provide insight into ways of getting annotated datasets with little effort or expense.

Note: it is worth distinguishing the term "users" from "contributers".
