Where are the Views at?
posted by voodooshack - 15th of june, 2009
I've made my biggest push for uploads in the last couple of weeks by adding 27 new pictures of the desert in the southwest part of the USA, and it's all been for naught. Not a single one of them has had a view to this point, let alone... More...

Imaging the keywords
posted by alexhor - 18th of may, 2009
I don't know if anyone covered that subject but here is my few cents. In stock photography we are familiar with the term "keywording the images". Pretty hard task to do. Sometimes even hard to figure ten descent keywords. With time... More...
