I have tried deepmeta and qhero and stocksubmitter.

can anyone recommend a software program or servide that makes the disambiguation process the easiest?

thanks

id like to know this also.  i only use deepmeta.  I've experimented the hero and the ESP site but didn't even see where the option to disambiguate is on those services.  deepmeta has had off and on technical issues with disambiguation.  i wish getty would drop that whole requirement.

Sadly there is no easy way to discombobulate keywords.

Getty will never change

Do video submissions no longer require disambiguation, or am I just not seeing where to do that on the ESP upload form?

I haven't disambiguated keywords since the change to the ESP upload process.

Are you getting a lot of refusals then?
You disambiguate in the ESP via the keywords part. The keywords with a broken dashed line around it needs to be clicked and disambiguate. The ones with a clean box around them are fine.
If I leave one that still has the dashed line around it, it gets refused via the reason above.

There aren't any other options. You'd think transitioning to ESP they would have scrapped that ridiculous system but no. At least I don't need to choose from any of the woefully inadequate categories anymore though...

What I do to speed things up a bit in DeepMeta is add a blank image along with the batch. Then tick the keywords in one file, copy and paste them to the blank one, strip out anything not common to the whole batch and paste them back across all the files from that one.

Saves a lot of time repeatedly ticking common words. Doesn't work flawlessly anymore though and a few words for some reason don't get replaced with the ticked version but I reported the issue and hopefully it will be fixed in time. Still quicker than doing it all manually though and I usually only have to 'disambiguate' a couple words per image rather than a dozen.

If there's a word you use a lot in your metadata that you notice always needs to be 'disambiguated' to something else for ESP ie 'render' has to be changed to 'computer graphic' then add that to the metadata to start with too. Other than in cases where the word suggestions are horribly unrelated it probably won't make a difference on other stock sites and saves time in the long run.

I've found submitting faster than it used to be actually and review times aren't weeks anymore so if something good came out of all this nonsense it's that.

I never even noticed the dashed lines around some keywords.  I see it now.  Thanks.

But I never had a rejection for not disambiguating.

Hi All, I'm Kasper from qHero.

From what you guys are writing I would definitely swing by qHero, even if you already tried it. I'm surprised to hear that the disambiguation step has not been clear to all of you, but to get that out of the way - there are three steps: General, Releases, Terms. The last one is the disambiguation step, where you disambiguate your keywords into "iStock terms".

qHero semi-automates the disambiguation step, so after the auto-generated list of keywords, and attaching a model release, all you have to do is scroll through the list of terms in step three and the Yellow ones are not yet disambiguated. In a test I literally just did about 30% of the keywords were not auto disambiguated. This will get better and better, but qHero is still the fastest way to go - especially because you can disambiguate "in bulk" by choosing similar files.

Let us know what you think!

Best, Kasper
