  1. Extra Categories?

    Hello Can I start by saying thank you to all of the regular contributors to this forum, I have been sitting on the sidelines for a while and have learnt much from your posts. My question today is whether Alamy should expand its list of categories? I know its a well set list already but I'm wondering if some major global issues like Environment should be added. Im sure we have all had shots where we would like a category just for that special "cute Labrador" shot and I'm not suggesting that Alamy open the gates on this but i just feel that this one in particular could be helpful to buyers and contributors alike. Happy to hear everyone's thoughts. thanks Stephen
  2. As I have said before I've been away from Alamy for a while and now I am just starting to update my image collection to try to bring it in line with latest Alamy requirements. Primary and Secondary categories are pretty new to me, and it does appear to take quite a while to not only set them but to set them appropriately. The question is, has anyone ascertained yet whether the time spent doing categories really worthwhile? (I have just short to 7000 images to go through). How are the categories being used? Do images with them appear to sell better? Finally, for some images I find it difficult to think of a really appropriate second category - in those cases what's the best option? Not set the second category? Set it the same as the first? Or just pick one of the others even if it is only vaguely appropriate. Thanks Ian.
