As a buyer of images from Dreamstime, I feel that many photographers are missing out simply because they are not using the right words to describe their photographs. Two examples: 'Young woman PITCHING fat' instead of 'young woman PINCHING fat' is a spelling mistake that changes the meaning completely. Also, when I wanted images of people slipping over on an icy surface, I was shown a photo of a woman dozing with her eyes shut. The description was something like 'Woman is SLIPPING' (rather than 'sleeping').
I fully appreciate that English is not the first language of many contributors, but a little care surely can pay dividends, because quite a few images cannot be located by an obvious word search. I often find what I need purely by accident.
Thank you, Pakamak, for a very precise observation. We, contributors, certainly need to take this into account. Especially your last sentence should cause the concern to many of us. Once again thank you for your thoughts. Of course it's impossible to fully avoid spelling mistakes, but I truly hope we'll do our best in order to make the buyers feel comfortable and easily find what they need.
Thanks for the feedback, even I am guilty of that in some of my previous uploads.
Just a question for the veterans, I can fully appreciate the importance of the right spelling in the caption but we are human and mistakes happen. Would having the same word properly spelled in the keywords not show up the image?
