Keywords are so important!

We all know how time consuming keywording can be, but it really is a vital stage of uploading that should be given just as much thought as the taking of and the processing of the image.Yesterday, I had a spare hour and so thought I would look at some of my images to see if I could improve the keywords.I removed some and also added quite a few new ones.I also had a go at using Yuri Arcurs really useful keywording tool to see if this would make any difference to the words that I was coming up... continue reading


keywordsI was wondering how you will act for entering keywords and titles of your images, especially when it comes to a series of images quite similar to each other or who are from the session with a similar concept.In general I write a description and keywords on a Word document with the description and keywords, and insert directly into the raw fiels before work, so that once worked and loaded the image I choose only the most appropriate categories and you're done, but at the end of the games... continue reading
