Primary and Secondary Categories in Alamy Quality Control and technical talk Posted January 16, 2018 14 hours ago, Bryan said: The two Categories in the Optional fields of AIM offer a range of choices, but it's not clear to me how they will be used. I can't see where they appear in a search, maybe big customers have additional search fields, or are they used by Alamy sales staff? Or perhaps they will be introduced in the future? I am having some difficulty in selecting the most appropriate categories for some of my images, and feel that some additional guidance would be useful. For example does "Archival or Historical" merely apply to photos taken in the past, or is it appropriate for very old buildings? Travel covers a multitude of sins, and we also have Transport. A list of examples against each category would be good, with maybe some suggestions on what would not be suitable under each category. If we are to make full use of these categories and retrospectively complete the fields it would also be useful to be able to select only those images which are deficient. Agree with all of that. As I have said in other posts before, Alamy doesn’t really provide enough information and examples to help contributors.
