incamerastock Posted June 19, 2013 Share Posted June 19, 2013 Hi Alamy, Just noticed an unintended consequence of the new changes to the searchability of pseudonyms which means more work for us! I'm sure this was an oversight.... Manage Images no longer allows us to look at our collections using a pseudonym and keyword combination. It has always allowed us to see: A) everything under one pseudonym (by using the dropdown selector); or B)everything under one keyword by typing the keyword (or a phrase) in the search box; or C) by typing the pseudonym and keyword into the search box we could see all images of that keyword within a given pseudonym Option C) is now no longer available as the new engine does not recognise the pseudonym. So for an agency like us or a contributor with a large collection broken down into pseudonyms they can no longer "manage" keywords or attribution at pseudonym/subject level which is a problem. For example: Let's say that we wanted to know how many images of London we had in PseudA; select a few of a certain area, change some keywords and move them to PseudB. Prior to the changes we'd call up Manage Images and type: "PseudA London" This would return the images where London was a keyword within our PseudA. We could then see and manage those images as a unit within a single pseudonym; or select our 30 or 50 or whatever and drag them to the batch window and set them to PSeudB. Save it and job done. Now, we can't do this so we would have to do that search on the main site, make a list of all the image numbers we wanted to alter and do them one by one... Not good! Could you flag this up as a problem please. That's quite a large chunk of functionality we've lost. Thanks J Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
