Hi,

I've been selling microstock photos for a while now and I've used the color labels to mark which photos have been edited, which need to be edited and which have already been uploaded and which ones have been rejected.

Things however are getting a little complicated as some agencies (plainpicture for example) require exclusivity and have a rather more complex approval process which means I need to specifically also tag images I've submitted (approved and rejected) to avoid mistakes.

There are not enough color labels to keep this and I can't use tags as they are used to tag the photos. What are my options? How are you managing your photos?

Thanks,
Guy

To locate fast some particular images I put an "*" or 2 or 3 or 4 in the field "copy name" that is generally blank
Of course you can write anything you want there, like "plainpicture/accepted" for example.
Then I use the text research, in this specific field, to find the images having these *
Not very simple, but it offers some interesting possibilities.

Adobe Bridge?

In my opinion LR is by far the best for this sort of work, much better than Bridge.
I use a label system similar to yours, for your specific need (exclusive agency) I would use a collection
