Im looking for suggestions on how best to store keywords ready for Adobe uploading.

I use Lightroom / Photoshop as a combination for my editing and libraries and store the image keywords in the normal EXIF locations.  The obvious problem with this is LR always exports them in alphabetical order.  While this is fine for most stock sites it means i have to manually edit each one on Adobe upload into priority order.

My current system is a simply .txt file with a list of keywords for my common topics, sorted into priority order which i end up having to copy/paste into the website after upload.  This clearly is a messy system so im looking for advice on making this more efficient.  Im guessing nobody has yet created a LR plugin that'll populate priority order keywords into exported photos?

Surely Adobe will fix this soon in LR as they work to integrate their products and Adobe Stock!

I also use LR as I need to use those keywords to find my images, and then I use Stock Submitter to create an order that has the first 5 or so keywords as my priority ones. I blogged about the process here: http://www.backyardsilver.com/2017/02/stock-submitter-istock-esp-new-alamy-supertags/

As I started using keyword.io to get my initial keywords (which are in the order that they claim are based on sales against that keyword), I start with a sorted order, paste into LR and lose that order, then go into Stock Submitter and put a part of the order back!! Crazy! Come on Adobe - sort this out!

Bridge keeps your keywords in the order you enter them.

Thanks for mentioning https://www.keyword.io/tool/stock-photo-research, please note that the order is based on the likelihood of keywords being relevant for your query, not the sales!

In consequence, the top keywords are most likely the most generic ones, so you might want to double-check before pasting them :)

Nice looking site. How is it I can type in a keyword and get blank, no match, no similar, no nothing? Where do the words available come from? I mean are they harvested from sales or do you have to seed them, before the software finds the rest? Anyway, lovely design, the matching words and ability to copy is a nice treat.

Thanks :)

If you get no results that means your search parameters don't match anything in the database of currently ~ 36 million photos, vectors and videos. Can happen with some niches or typos of course :)
