  1. Keywords, my big problem

    I know that the "right" keywords are almost as important as the photo. Therefore from me as newbie a few questions to the experienced contributer: Does it make sense to use the 50 KW as much as possible, even if some very general terms are used? Or is less more? Should the singular as well as the plural be used for nouns or is the singular sufficient? For compound terms, e.g. "aerial view", you should use 2 separate single words or the compound word or both? Sorry, I know a lot of questions, but I hope someone answers anyway and thanks in advance. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator

  3. Keywording

  4. Comma between keywords

    Hi, i am new to alamy. I've been uploading my photos with metadata to this site. But, my keywords for e.g: apple, fruit, red appear as apple fruit red. Do i have to add comma between them or is it okay without keywords? Any help is appreciated!
  5. Lizard ID help needed.

  6. Hi, This is my first post here and my question refers to my initial submission to Alamy. I passed the approval process and I just finished keywording my 4 initial images. Is there a next step I need to to do place this photos for sale? Or does that happen automatically after I save all the keywords and all the information fields? Thanks Dom
  7. When I started with Alamy I was new to stock photography and foolishly uploaded and added captions, locations, tags and other attributes in Manage Images for many of my images. Is there anyway to download a spreadsheet with all this information so I can more easily add them back to my images in Lightroom?
  8. I have just been doing some keywording on some new images and adding some more keywords to images which are already on sale. During this, I accidentally mis-spelled Mediterranean. The spellchecker picked it up, but it started me wondering whether it might be a good idea to deliberately add common mis-spellings. If I can make a spelling mistake, surely a buyer might do the same; or would this be a complete waste of time and effort?
  9. My first 4 images passed QC and I have been accepted. I am filling in the keywords and was wondering if you need to put a comma between the keywords. I have found this is generally necessary but do not know the Alamy procedure and found nothing mentioned in the documentation. Also, this is my first time doing this on Alamy and I was wondering what I was missing in terms of making the images go live after I have finished this process. I do not see any button or tab to click on once I have this all completed. Again, go easy. I am a newb with Alamy. I have gone over the information that is online and have not seen answers to these specific questions.
  10. Keywords case sensitive?

    Greetings, folks, I'm new here and have a question: Are Alamy keyword searches case sensitive? I hunted around the previous posts for the answer without success. Don Douglas
  11. Is it possible to amend keywords after submission? I just noticed a couple of typos that slipped through typing on iPhone keyboard. Ooops! My fault, I know, but just wondering if there is a way to correct?
  12. I’ve been posting images to Alamy for a couple months now and I’m trying to make sense of how to optimize my keywording for improved views, zooms and hopefully sales. So far I’ve kept my keywords focused and fairly sparse to avoid coming up in searches that don’t fit the image. I’ve been perhaps a bit too successful since I’m also not getting loads of views and zooms…or sales. I’ve been reviewing My Alamy and find that with few exceptions the majority of searches are simple one, two or three word searches that result in thousands of views. Common words like “race”, “white cat”, “jellyfish”, “animals funny” and “cruise ship” are some of the most recent searches and resulted in over 14,000 views apiece. I gave up trying to find my white cat images after 50 pages so no surprise I wasn't zoomed. One searcher uses a much more complex system, for example “house colorful not fun not bird not food not dish not girl not family not man not woman not cute not animal not dog not cat not child not baby”, but his results also pull up thousands of images so the advantage of such a lengthy search term isn’t clear to me. You can comment on my keywords for any image but if it makes it easier, take a look at my keywords for this image DB6WD9 – RM. It's one of my more sparsely keyworded images. Caption: Man casting rod and reel, fishing from the beach in Fernandina Beach, Florida. Essential Keywords: man cast fishing beach rod reel surf sand sea Main Keywords: Atlantic Ocean surf waves [Fernandina Beach] [Nassau County] Florida USA Location: Fernandina Beach, Nassau County, Florida, USA Also, I'm having a lot of trouble keywording two images, DDGG98 – RM and DDGH8D – RM, since I'm not good with vehicle identifications.
  13. 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?
  14. Keywords - a Question

    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
