Bryan Posted December 10, 2017 Share Posted December 10, 2017 I often come across newspaper photos that I find very difficult to locate within the Alamy catalogue, some are impossible (maybe having left the agency?). They do present an interesting challenge, but are also a source of considerable frustration! The problem exists because they do not include some keywords that I would normally associate with the image. There are issues here, the contributor may be selling a concept and the image may contain elements that are not directly relevant and so are not included etc. In other words we are looking at the situation from different angles. I hesitate to draw attention to these shots in the forum as it implies a criticism of the contributor, and, after all, they have found their way into publication. Is it worth highlighting these in the images found threads - maybe with the statement , "suggest Check Keywords", or should we just let sleeping dogs lie? Personally I would welcome this kind of useful feedback on my photos, as good keywording is essential, but not everyone might feel that way.
