Do you have comma and space or just comma?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When I copy and paste my Alamy keywords it comes out like this without any space:

 

UK,Britain,British,England,English,Suffolk,East Anglia,East Anglian,Ipswich,town,centre,urban,urban area,city,historic,arch,arched,archway,building,buildings,architecture,architectural,street,arcade,United Kingdom

 

Do you keyword like this or leave a space? I have always left a space after each comma.

 

What is the 'industry' standard? I do this work in Photoshelter and send to Alamy and elsewhere.

I think either on its own is sufficient- I only use a comma myself. Of course if you use a phrase tag you need both, but I'm pretty sure a space next to a comma is ignored if not removed.

Unless I''ve missed the point- I don''t have images elsewhere.

When I copy keywords from Alamy and paste to IMatch it automatically adds the spaces. Mario Westphal, the developer of IMatch, is a stickler for keeping to standards (XMP, IPTC, etc.) so it probably is the industry standard.

 

On a side note - IMatch also automatically removes duplicate keywords which is handy for cleaning up the duplicates left over from the 'Essential/Something/Comprehensive' debacle.

I just include the commas like you, no spaces. Don't think it makes any difference.

Space after comma. I set up Lightroom to separate keywords by comma but still by habit type comma and then a space. Alamy doesn't seem to mind.

Comma, no space.
