I think its smart thinking but hard on those you copy from ! But on reflection people get inspiration from other people's images.

I reckon it's ok to get some ideas what others are using as keywords, but just copying them is not really fair. I think you can improve your English vocubular even more when looking the words up in a dictionary.

I agree with you it is copying. But, common, it is not illegal.
Lets say I have the same keyword as another photo, the potential buyer will find both pictures. At the end he is the only one that will choose to buy or not.

In addition I must admit that I use a web dictionary www.reverso.net that give me many words

I did try, but I'm not so good in taking photos of people - that's not really my thing :(

You should emphasize

5 – Quickly read and check/correct what you have just copied

Some users just copy keywords of similar images BUT DON'T check them. For example: I tag all my photos with my user name "jdanne". Surprisingly searching for "jdanne" will find more photos than the size of my portfolio. It's so easy to check keywords with an online dictionary but obviously some members are too lazy to do it.

Dreamstime does not allow such practice and you should not recommend other users to do this. It is true that you can check the image info of other images and use as model in case you do not know how to keyword but copying word for word is not allowed. This usually results in spam.

I would:

1) Write down a list of my own words
2) Use a thesaurus to expand on it
3) Use Google Keyword checker for search volume

Probably quite a bit of work for each image but by being original you will most definitely find new opportunities.

I believe that your ideea is a good one. It is not illegal to get inspired!

In the end, you will still add your own words that better describe your pic.
