  1. Wow Marmot, you should check that carefully.... By the way, if I do a search with my pseudonim or name, nothing appears. Is that normal? I would have expected to see my pictures haha.
  2. Hi again I'm not finding keywording with MI difficult, but it's much faster with Lightroom. I have read about an Alamy plug-in for Lightroom. I have to try it.. Thanks!
  3. Yes, but in my previous example, in both cases I don't have releases, so what's the point of specifying that one requires it and the other don't, if I don't have releases for any?
  4. After the release of some of my new pictures, I have seen that all what buyers can see (in pictures that requires property release as well as in which don't require it) is Model release : No Property release : No And the button saying that the buyer should know what to do. So what's the point of saying, in the Manage Image, that the picture needs property release and that I don't have it? If I say a property released is not required, the effect is going to be the same and the buyer is going to see the same information. I'm just saying this because I could save a lot of time, in the sense that by now I don't have property releases for any of my pictures, so yesterday I was worried checking picture by picture which one could need property releases, to say "yes, it is required; no, I don't have it" or "no, it's not required" If in both cases the result is going to be the same for the buyer, what's the point of distinguishing between both options? Thanks!! Best
  5. By the way, under my name it still says I have 34 images, but if you click you can see the last ones (about 150 in total). Is this normal??
  6. Well, after this morning I can say that the problem still occurs but it seems to be random, because I have writen one by one all the keywords in all the remaning pictures since yesterday, and sometimes they show up together, sometimes don't. Anyway, doing a search with individual words works well, so I think the best thing is not to worry any more about it and just write keywords in the fastest way as possible.. I don't expect any sales, so ... Thanks a lot, once again, for your support! Best
  7. I have to say that I only have one image published this morning (the one from Vienna, with the problem), the others were uploaded in October 2014 (from Chicago, some with problems, others without). I have now other pictures as "ready", so let's see what happens with them tomorrow. The problem is that I don't remember in which ones I used the copy/paste and in which others I used the batch editor (is there a way to add a keyword to a picture that already has keywords?? I don't think so, it's horrible! that's why I started to do copy/paste, much faster), so I have to test the behaviour of the keywords with individual pictures along this week. I'll keep this post updated with the final conclusions
  8. I have copied the string of keywords from the Manage Image of one picture with the problem to Word, and no special characters appeared. I saw just the words separated by blank space, like in the Manage Image. So I'm not sure about how to fix it for the pictures I have already uploaded. In addition, how long does it take to refresh the keywords in the results page? Anyway, I have looked for one of my pictures using only 3 of the 4 keywords that are grouped and the picture was found, so I guess that it's not too important, since pictures can be found by not using all the keywords of the "group". Probably this was what spacecadet was talking about before...
  9. I don't see anything wrong. I just write the words one after the other, or sometines I copy-paste from previous pictures, but in the Manager Image what I see are single words separated by blank space, and no other symbol. Probably I should try to re-write those that are problematic, to see if they split...
  10. And I forgot to say that I don't use square brackets, just blank spaces
  11. Hi again, I upload the pictures with no metadata attached, empty, and then I write the keywords one by one in the Manage Images tool. Spacecadet, the problem is not that I see essential and main keywords together, which is ok, the problem is that I write, let's say 3 or 4 words as essential, and then in the results page they appear as a sentence, not as individual words. Thanks to all of you for your help
  12. Hi again! I'm writing the keywords for some new pictures (what a boring and hard task!!) and I have realised that for some of my pictures, once they are on sale, the essential keywords appear together in a single keyword, but this doesn't happen with other pictures. In all the cases I write the essential keywords separated by a blank space, no commas or other symobls. As an example: E9J6HC: one keyword is -chicago grant park skyline- all together. E9J6JJ: all keywords are individual In both cases, both the essential and main keywors were writen separated by blank spaces and no commas or ". So, I cannot understand why in some cases the essential keywords are grouped together and in the other cases they're not. In addition, I don't know if this is relevant to the final ranking of a picture. Thanks again for your help! Best
