  1. I have found that I am becoming more and more unsure about keywording images the more I upload! I understand not to use words that aren't relevant and that the essential keywording box is for the most important keywords, however, I'm just not sure on what words should go in the Comprehensive section. For example - if I were to put up an image of a spring carpet of anemones that was taken in Lordship Woods Horsemonden Kent I would put the keywords of woodland anemones spring carpet in the essential field, other relevant words such as woods, "ancient woodland", "woodland carpet" "English woodland" Lordship Woods, Horsemonden for instance in the Main keywords and then Kent, England, UK in the Comprehensive section. Basically I am putting the more general terms of where the woods are ie Kent, England etc in the Comprehensive section correct - my thinking is that these terms aren't the key search terms someone would use and are too general but still relevant. Am I thinking along the right lines here? Also if I were to include trees and tree - I would put trees in the main keyword section but tree would go in the comprehensive section as again it isn't so relevant because there isn't a tree on its own. Does that sound about right or am I way off the mark? I have read the relevant pages on Alamy help as well as trawled the net for any other help (there doesn't seem to be much) so any hints or tips on this dark art would be really appreciated Thanks Lin
