Alamy Posted April 6, 2016 Share Posted April 6, 2016 Hi Everyone, We wanted to give you an update on some upcoming features of the new contributor tools. We've been working very hard on this for the last year or so, taking into account the requests and ideas from you. Please bear in mind that things are still under development and there is still further testing to be done, so things may change based on the outcomes there. We also wanted to mention that we've been working with several prototypes of the new tools already and we've undergone rounds of internal and external testing, including with a group of Alamy contributors. (No need to let us know if you want to be a tester, we will get in touch with you based on what we need, eg, number of images submitted / worked on with current tools etc) We appreciate your first question may be - "When will the tools be ready?" - please appreciate that fixed timescales are not possible but the tools will be ready at some point in 2016. Could be sooner rather than later though, we'll let you know. A few features of the new tools: A complete overhaul of Upload, Track Submissions and Manage Images No flash - it's gone Simplified restrictions An "editorial only" tickbox (can be used for RF and RM images) Far fewer mandatory fields (you can get images live and searchable MUCH quicker) An "exclusive to Alamy" tickbox Ability to add / remove single / multiple keywords to batches of images without overwriting existing data Live feedback on the 'discoverability' of your images based on your data + many more we'll be able to share with you once further testing is complete. Hopefully you're as excited as we are about this, but please appreciate we can't answer any further questions at this stage. It makes more sense to provide help and answer questions when you can actually have a play with the tools yourself! Cheers Alamy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
