  1. Been in my mind for a long time. Please help. 1) Let's say my caption have "luxury brand shops", is it necessary to include in keywords again? 2) Is supertags necessary to apply? 3) At the Optional section, there is "location". Is it necessary to apply again when caption and keywords already stated the location?
  2. Hi everyone, Alamy newbie here; something to do whilst locked down during the virus crisis! I just uploaded 2,500 images by FTP transfer, they were all titled and captioned in Lightroom before doing so but as I look at them in my Alamy Image Manager, waiting in Quality Control they are all showing file names instead of titles! Will the titles be in place once the images have passed quality control or delete everything now, find out what went wrong and start again?
  3. I have been having discussions with other photographers about live news captions. I normally take the view that as long as I cover the 5 “W”’s, who, what, when, where and why I am OK and generally shorter is better for busy picture editors. If a newspaper is going to use one of my pictures of a cabinet minister then it is normally attached to some sort of policy/announcement and all they need is a name title, location date Thus “ (date) Julian Smith MP PC Secretary of State for Northern Ireland leaves a Brexit meeting at the Cabinet office Whitehall London” is sufficient. Or “London 20th August 2019 Pro democracy Hong Kong demonstrators outside the Cabinet Office in Whitehall London.” If the photo is not is not so obvious, such as a recent Essex Custom Culture show (excuse the oxymoron) I would put in details thus “(date) 1937 Model T Ford on display at the Essex Custom Culture Show in Brentwood, Essex. The custom Culture Show is an exhibition of British and North American culture from the early thirties to the sixties.” However i note some photographers put much much more detail in their captions. For example Julian Smith MP PC Northern Ireland Secretary leaves the Cabinet office in Whitehall after a Brexit meeting, escorted by a police officer with anti Brexit protesters in the background” i know there is no completely correct answer but what are contributors views?
  4. Hey all, it's about a year ago that I made my first submission to Alamy. With over 6000 photos online and with only a few sales yet I'm thinking about improving keywords and captions. Do you have any ideas what I can do better, should avoid or what mistakes I should definitely correct? Please note that I have already read the guides on keywording on Alamy. Or do I just need more patience? Cheers, Caspar
  5. I am about to put a number of abstract images onto sale through AIM and I am not quite sure how to caption and/or tag them. They are all microphotography images of (largely) organic matter and whilst the identify of the "raw" material is apparent in some of them, for the most part, this is not. I have produced these with the aim of making interesting, colourful images and, to some extent, seeing what can be done via this media. My intention was not to produce scientifically authenticated images for educational purposes, rather interesting (to me at least) patterns and shapes. Some of these could be used a book covers but there is no category for that use so my questions are these: 1) Should I identify what the raw material is in the caption or just title it "abstract", leaving it to the imagination as to what it really is? 2) What should I use for the primary category? Abstract and Background or should I use what it actually is? 3) What should I use for the secondary category (if at all)? In the case of a colourful Stilton cheese rind, should I use Food? For a lovely lamb's ear leaf or opaque leaf, should I use Plants? For a owl's feathers. should I use wildlife? 4) Should I add 'book c over' to the tagging in the hope that somebody might find them for that kind of use? Any advice on the above would be very much appreciated. Thanks. Sheila
  6. Hey guys! I'm pretty new to this, and have had a few sales in the last year. But I'm looking to majorly improve what I have up and boost my sales as much as possible. Is a lack of sales just a bulk problem? (which I'm working on, I only have around 250 photos at the moment) - or is it more to do with how I'm tagging and captioning images? If anyone could take a look I'd be really grateful!

  7. There has been a tremendous amount of discussion recently on tags and captions. Many people have subscribed to the idea of going back over their images to revisit them some with apparent success. A lot of us struggle with tags and captions so I was wondering is anyone was prepared to give examples of what they consider to be high quality tags and captions. Of course these do not have to be your images but can be from someone else.
  8. Has anyone else noticed this: Alamy promises four dedicated language sites – Spanish first Spanish Alamy site now up and running. Good news! Will this mean more direct sales in foreign climes?! Should we (where possible) be including European tags in our images to take account of this (i.e. not just names of things/places, but direct translations of keywords - could then justify using up the 50 tags and turn everything green!)? I have had a quick look at one or two of my images and the translation of the captions is reasonable, but not perfect. Is there anything we can do about this? Alamy?
  9. Hi, Yesterday I noticed after editing the caption on single and also multiple files that the caption did not change to the one I entered and the files retain the name of the filename of the illustration I uploaded and not the name I put into the caption field. Is this a recently known issue? Thanks for any help in advance. Mark
