  1. I'm a recent contributor and new to key-wording. In a previous post on Key-wording - some-one mentioned the importance of having Key-Words in the correct order. Could you please comment / explain this. Thanks Tony
  2. Greetings everyone, I remember that long-long time ago there used to be a way (or am I dreaming?) to download one's meta-data (i.e. titles, keywords and such) in a single file, edit it and re-upload. Is it still that way? Does anybody know how to pull this one out? Thank you!
  3. What can retrospectively be done about poor keywording, spam and poor search results? E.g. do a search on Grey Whale sorted by 'new'. See any Grey Whales? Similarly 'Blue Whale' - not one actual 'Blue Whale' in the most recent 200 uploads. A huge amount of overlap and nary a whale in the overlapped material. Surely buyers are really put off by this sort of thing. (I could give plenty more examples). Or is the idea that if you choose 'new' rather than 'relevant', your search result doesn't actually have to relate at all to the search term?
  4. Most software allows the use of the ctrl-z shortcut to correct mistakes and slips of the finger (it undoes the previous action). Unfortunately this doesn't work in Manage Images (although other short cuts, such as ctrl-v for paste, do). I've lost count of the number of times my fingers slipped and I lost the keyword I was cutting and pasting from, say, comprehensive keywords to main keywords! Is this just a Windows problem, or is it a problem across the board? Dealing with this would be very helpful in improving efficiency and productivity.
  5. I am not good at conceptual keywording. I have added "big" and "small" but they do not seem to have any traction. Do you have any suggestions?
  6. Hi every one - just saying hello, I've just recently been accepted as a contributor to Alamy. I'm new to stock photography, and I'm trying to get my head around the rules / conventions of Key wording - any advice appreciated! I've noticed there is a key word plugin for Light Room. Is there a plugin for Aperture? Do any members use Aperture for key wording images, if so could you offer any advice on how you use it / work flow. Thanks
  7. I should know this by now and I'm sure it would have been covered in the old forum. As an example - if I put White flower flowers, will it be picked up in a search for white flower and white flowers? Or should I put white flower white flowers? John
