Hi Everyone; I seem to be having issues picking proper keywords... and I'm a little confused about descriptions... how much of a description should you include? should i post on every photo where the photo was taken. should I mention what camera used etc..? help ... can anyone offer any resources for key wording and how to figure out categories.? I obviously can figure out basic categories.. but sometimes it's hard to choose a second category.. slowly but surely I'm getting there ... Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer .. I appreciate... Have an awesome day .. ~ Dawn ~

Description should include the place if you are uploading an image of a specific landmark, building, etc. Otherwise, description should simply describe accurately what you have in your photo. Keep it clean and simple, not too long or too short. You do not need to include the camera or lens you have used. They appear in your image's exif.

I tend to use the keywords that I used in the description, and describe the photo with things that a buyer might be searching for. I'm not sure if it helps on the search engine here, but I know using keywords helps with SEO (google searches etc).

Just checked a dozen of your photos and in my opinion they all have very good infos (title, keywords, description, categories).
The more you can and be accurate (no spam) is the best thing.

Bye, Rob.

Search the boards for 'keywords'. There has been lots of info posted in the past.

If you have problems with categories, try this: rewrite all categories in to some text document. After that try to look on this list everytime before shooting, not after shooting. Thanks reading categories through you could find new topics also.
