My first experience as a buyer ;)

Hi, Friends.Unexpectidely the day came when I began to need pictures for site designs. Now I know a little bit of how people choose pictures. At least how I do this.Here is my first impression of the process.1. I convert some of my income into credits.2. I have in my mind a draft design and a picture which is missing.3. I put the keywords in search and see what appears. If appears something different from what I expect I try different keyword combination.4. Here a part of my photographers... continue reading

Keywording - Are The tags correct?

This is old, mature, senior. I was looking for some concept ideas for old, mature or senior women on vacation in the islands. I used the following search strings "old woman island", "senior woman island" and "mature woman island". While the "mature" and "senior" returned good results; "old" brought up some beautiful photos of a young woman in a bikini. In the past I have flagged results that were way outside the perimeters that I was looking for. However, I've received comments back that, by flagging,... continue reading

A Matter of Expectations!

Hi all,I Just thought of sharing you this as I was working on a new project & of course DT photos were involved...Most of the times buyers imagine the use of the image before they download it! But the fact is that the photo doesn't always reach the final work for many reasons...1. The final client didn't like it! "Differences make us stronger :))"2. The photo needs much editing & it's easier to get another sometimes! "That doesn't make it ungood photo!"3. Changing of plans... Like... continue reading
