Hello, hoping someone can help with my issue. I am trying to add more details to my images on the Alamy Image Manager but when I come to 'save', it isn't saving. Have tried on two different computers and the same thing, just won't save any changes. Has anyone else had or having this problem? Any suggestions please? Carl.
George Munday posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceI'd like to preface this by saying I like the new Alamy Image Management system. It's taken a little time to get used to, but seems to work well and I particularly like the ability to add phrases to tags. But I do have one query. Checking through my earlier images, their "Discoverability" levels are mostly indicated as "On Sale" with an orange bar. I gather that it's preferable for them to be "On Sale" with a green bar. To do this is simple enough, all I need to do is bring the number of tags up to 40 and 'Eureka' it changes to green. If I add 50 tags, then an image's discoverability is fully optimised. In AIM Q&As, It's stressed that all images should have at least 5 tags and serious contibutors will add many more, but I've always understood that tags should be pertinent and reflect the nature/location/concept etc of the image. Then question I've always asked myself is "Are my tags relevant to the researcher/buyer?" The briefing about this aspect is not completely clear, so before I spend hours in front of my monitor - rather than shooting new stock - does the orange/green bar really matter from the viewpoint of selling our images? Please can someone advise. Many thanks George Munday
