Workflow advice please in Stock photography discussion and contributor experience Posted March 25, 2018 5 hours ago, RedSnapper said: Question: Why dont you add the metadata before uploading the images to Alamy? Or is there something i've not undertood about this workflow? I FTP from LR to Alamy with the captions/tags already in place km I do actually do the captions first, especially for news images. I don't always do all of the keywording and setting the optional information first. No particular reason, but sometimes if I haven't ticked the right boxes, it can get wiped by the fetch data step.
