Phil Posted August 21, 2014 Share Posted August 21, 2014 Alamy's keywording guidelines tell us - "We no longer require our contributors to specify whether the image is a cut out in Manage Images. Cut outs are now identified by a technical solution and retrieved in the search engine when buyers select 'Cut Outs' in the 'Image Type' menu in the left hand sidebar tool. We have found using technology produces significantly better results, however we can only identify cut outs on a white background." Can anyone shed any light on how the "technical solution" used to ID cut outs works? Should we add "cut out" to our cut out images keywords? Browsing/searching the "Cut Outs" category seems to return mixed results depending on whether or not the selected Image Type includes "photo" or not as well as "cut outs" and also whether or not the search field contains "cut out" in addition to the search term. Am I overlooking something? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
