George Munday Posted February 5, 2017 Share Posted February 5, 2017 I'd like to preface this by saying I like the new Alamy Image Management system. It's taken a little time to get used to, but seems to work well and I particularly like the ability to add phrases to tags.But I do have one query. Checking through my earlier images, their "Discoverability" levels are mostly indicated as "On Sale" with an orange bar. I gather that it's preferable for them to be "On Sale" with a green bar. To do this is simple enough, all I need to do is bring the number of tags up to 40 and 'Eureka' it changes to green. If I add 50 tags, then an image's discoverability is fully optimised.In AIM Q&As, It's stressed that all images should have at least 5 tags and serious contibutors will add many more, but I've always understood that tags should be pertinent and reflect the nature/location/concept etc of the image. Then question I've always asked myself is "Are my tags relevant to the researcher/buyer?"The briefing about this aspect is not completely clear, so before I spend hours in front of my monitor - rather than shooting new stock - does the orange/green bar really matter from the viewpoint of selling our images? Please can someone advise. Many thanks George Munday Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
