Edit:  You can select the tag text and copy and paste between windows but apparently only to the capacity of the tag window. Still a problem.

 

It doesn't matter if they are in separate submissions, just select the image you want to copy from, but I agree there are some tricks and techniques we need to discover (hopefully ;) )

 

If I select an image, as soon as I go to the sub I want to keyword the selection vanishes. I need to be able to copy and paste sets of keywords.

Suggest we all go to the "Help" tag on "Alamy image manager" and click on the dropdown "Instructions" then bookmark it for future reference.

It doesn't tell you how to copy and paste.

AFAICS the old trick of having two MI windows open and copying between them doesn't work. You can't have a selected image from a search and images from a new sub on screen at the same time.

Same here. I expect those of us who still use the old, pre-Flash, manage images have been left until later.

Open another window, as I do, alongside. Copy from one paste to the other. That is what I used to do. Not tried it yet with new tools. :mellow:

 

Allan

 

Let me know if it works Mark.

It was only using the Instructions that saved the day after I thought I had mucked up my submission and deleted all of the "Discoverable" images.

 

Back on track now. ;)

That's what I used to do. It doesn't work now. Only 30 characters (presumably the limit of the tag size) will paste into the new box.

It takes longer to keyword. You have to type keywords in, then click the blue square, then assign supertags one at a time instead of just filling the esskeys box.

I can't find a way to edit a tag either.

No way to copy and paste tags from one MI window to another. This is a massive problem.

Yes, if anybody has found a way to edit an existing tag i would be very interested!

 

 

 

Can you reorder the tags?

Unfortunately 'help' doesn't help with my queries.

I think we have to delete the old tag and write a new one.

Is discoverability influential in an image's search placement .

The file number is no longer shown. So I can't track down an image in my own archive.

looks promising - don't profess to understand it all

concerned that a large proportion of my images have poor discoverability

 

How do you know that your discoverability is poor?  Where do you see that?

 

Edit: Found it. I was looking in Image Manager not in My dashboard

Thank you for the alert to the change.

 

My QC rank is two stars out of three. Since I've never failed QC, I wonder what I have  to do to get three stars. :unsure:

 

Somewhat alarmed to see nearly all my images have 'poor discoverability' with no indication as to precisely  why. I'm guessing I will need to manually set supertags on all 2800 images to reach Nirvana. :(  

 

Where do you see QC rank?

0.5% with good discoverability!

 

Boy, have I got some work to do.

 

Where do you see %?

On "My Alamy".

Mine is only 1 star alarmingly, although I've just had an accidental fail with no apparent sanctions (archival submitted as stock).

Seems to me that the more you keyword spam the more discoverable your image is.  I have only 22 images with good discoverability and those are the ones when I have many many tags, which these days I would have not added half of them.
