Hi! I'm a newbie here. How do you delete an image from your portfolio?

Click on photo, click on ‘Optional’ tab, then Delete. It’s not particularly obvious. Be aware that the image will still be for sale for six months but you won’t be able to edit it once you click on Delete.

With only 6 images uploaded so far, I would be thinking of adding more rather than getting rid of any. But if you insist, follow Sally's advice. Also, you can make it pretty impossible for a client to find your photo by removing almost all your caption and keywords. But you have to leave something in those fields or the system will keep your original words. Just make the remaining words complete nonsense or just words which do not exist.

 

I'm afraid no clients are even the slightest bit interested in your exposure settings. Save yourself the bother. Similarly, some newcomers seem to think clients might be interested in what camera was used. They really are not!

Alamy frowns on this. It may be a breach of contract.

Just sayin', is all.

Just clicked on your portfolio, watch your keywords. It's easier to change them when you only have 9 images but a lot more difficult when you have thousands!

 

In this image of a single yellow flower you have: purple, red, rose, bunch, decoration, pink, sweet, white, sunset and woods that you definitely don't need and autumn, summer, field, fresh, herb, leaf, morning, rural, foliage and spring that are dubious.

 

Don't add key words just to make the discoverabilty bar turn to green, this will hurt your CTR and your rank.

 

Cheers, John.
