Keymentoring: What a Neat Feature!

posted on 27th of july, 2010

A month and a half short of a year of being a contributor here at Dreamstime, this place continues to awe me! Over the weekend I had a few downloads and one of them was this image—

five credits it earned me, I was very pleased! I will find out later that there was someone else behind the scene who connected this image to the buyer.

As a part of my learning process, I always check the keyword the buyer sought after. In this particular download, that word was “nautilus”. Nautilus? Hmmm, I know for sure I did not enter that as a keyword. Must be a translation of one of my keywords to another language—what a feature—I automatically assumed. So I went to the back to the image with the intention of adding ‘nautilus’ as one of the keywords. Voila, it was there already, along with other keywords that I knew for sure I didn’t think about then nor now! Then I remember, DT has that keymentoring feature, at no charge to us, fabulous!

So, thanks again DT for having these features available to us—just another proof that you folks know what you’re doing! Big thanks also to my fellow member, whoever you are, who took the time and suggested keywords to my image (or should I say images as I’m sure if I check all of them, I’ll discover more). And of course, to the buyer who downloaded this image and also to all my buyers, thank you so much for the smiles each of your download give me (not to mention the extra cash I never thought this hobby of mine will generate me).

About me

My name is Juvy. Jennifer, the name on my profile, is my youngest daughter—she is the inspiration behind my creative work, not only in photography but also in many other things. As a very close friend of ours put it, Jennifer brings out the best in Juvy. So if you like my images, kudos to Jennifer; otherwise, well... we have Juvy to blame for. A little about me: I am a wife and a mother, first and foremost. By profession, I am an accountant, but wish that I am a photographer instead! I love capturing candid shots of people--I think this was a result of that wondrous experience called ... [Read more]
