Take the time!

posted on 22nd of june, 2010

As I mentioned in my last blog article > Re-keywording has to be done!, I am re-keywording my images now!
I can´t believe which keywords I´ve chosen in the past... :O
And now this means for me double the work!

So, please, don´t make the same mistake as I did! Always take and investigate the time to add precisely Keywords, a good Title & Descrition, and don´t forget to chose the right Categories!!! This is very important, because you can´t change the Categories later!!!

Thanks for reading!

I upload to some 5-6 micro stock agencies so it makes sense to take the time (YES!) and make a card with the title, description and keywords for each image I upload. That way I automatise (?) copy& paste the uploading and can use keywords from similar images to new ones...No big sales for now but I don't have yet 100 uploads...

This is something that has almost become a part of my process (if I remember). What I do is when I'm iffy about a submission or just plain in a hurry, I only put the minimum 10 keywords with the intent of going back when accepted. So, thanks, pal, for the reminder.

Yes, I'm still fighting with key wording and categories. Usually I do look for photos which are somewhat
similar to my downloads to get some "inspiration" as a starting point.

Probably native speakers find the correct keywords more easily but I'm not a native speaker.

I keywords for my pictures, I like less to choose cathegories... but you're right they're really important ;)

I'm waiting for the precious news about sales on the photos that you've changed much in the keywords! Thanks again ;)

Hi Brad! Yes, that could be a possibility. I totally agree with you, it´s better to get them right in the first place!

I believe you can e-mail support to change categories for an image, but it would be better to get them right in the first place :)
