The upgraded tagged photon facility at the MAX IV Laboratory is presented. The pulsed electron beam from a linac system is stretched in the MAX I ring and the electron beam hits a thin aluminium foil in which bremsstrahlung is produced. One of two available magnetic spectrometers is used to determine the energy of the post-bremsstrahlung electrons. The tagged photon ranges from 10 to 180 MeV with an energy resolution of about 300 keV. Rates as high as 4x106 photons s-1 MeV-1 have been used. The experimental area and facilities are described as well as examples of ongoing experiments.
