Submitting photos

posted on 16th of november, 2011

I thought that it would be much better to divide the submission process. In the first stage you have to submit just the photo without keywording with a small description. The editor will check if photo is acceptable based on the technical qualities. On the next step you keyword and geo-tag and everything else and another editor helps you with that.
My feeling that this will make submission less time consuming for editors and for photographers.
Because it really is SAD when you spend like few hours to geo tag and keyword photos just to get a review that your photos are not technically sound or interesting or (enter your alternative here)

Time is money. I think my idea can help both in terms of money and time!
What do you think?

I know this activity it's time consuming and it became frustrating when the image it's rejected, but I think Gmargittai is adopting the best strategy

Keymasters program is different) And who knows when these mysterious keymasters will finish their work.. I never tried it. I think I should)

Well, maybe you are right and I should think more about was is suitable as a stock photo. For now I am not that good in it so I spend a lot of time keywording/

But anyway. I think that this two stage process will improve both keywords and pictures.
