Anyone else hate tagging videos or photos, Its easier for me to go out and shoot a timelapse for 2 hours than tag one video, lol.
I just can't concentrate or something.

Hello. I use StockSubbmiter app for tagging and uploading videos. It is very useful, for photos I use Adobe Bridge. Yes, it takes some times to properlly tag your files but it is an investment. The stocksubbmiter app also let you upload to multiple sites directly. Give it a shot, they have a free version also.

It is pretty easy, when you find a workflow that suits you.  Tagging is the least of the concern when you live from stock production.

It surprises me how many "stock" shooters don't like tagging.

It comes with the territory.

As Yoda would say "do or do not there is no try"

I would argue that knowing each search engine and thereby tagging properly and accordingly is more important than the quality of your work.

Just putting that out there.

Tagging videos is really time consuming.
There is not even a standard using .csv files
How in 2017 2018 nobody has found a way to simplify the full process? I is just absurd.

A well-tagged image that's OK but nothing special will probably sell better than an otherwise excellent image that is poorly tagged.

Yes, exactly what I said.  :)

You are right and I agree, but here we are speaking about the difficulty of tagging the videos (the way to do it), not how it is important to tag correctly the images

I use Stock Submitter for video (as well as my stills) - easy as pie. As far as the more general point of the pain of tagging - I'm actually glad that many stock contributors find this hard and boring. That makes the earnings for those people willing to put the time and effort into it so much sweeter!

It can take time to assign relevant, accurate and consistent tags/keywords to stock video (or images) but it is a worthwhile exercise. Media buyers depend on metadata in order to locate relevant content, so it's essential to form a consistent approach to ensure your content not only looks great (technically and aesthetically) but that it comes up under relevant search requests. All search engines/stock websites index metadata differently, so an insight into this is also very important when creating your keywording methodology. It will definitely pay off in the long run, all the best and good luck!

I was agreeing with you!

Hi Xpiks now supports video from version 1.5 (http://xpiksapp.com/2018/01/14/xpiks-15-overview/). You can use keywords suggestion help there and have various presets. Overall people say it helps them to keyword artworks.

Is there any software that reads XMP(Extensible Metadata Platform)? My clips are already keyworded in Bridge

Tagging (keywording) is indeed more time consuming than shooting and that's why at BlackBoxGuild we have the possibility to let other members do the tagging for cinematographers.

Usually for a 15 -20 % share in the sales revenue to the tagger (curator).
This works especially well for archival projects with thousands of shots on dusty hard drives and the footage gets uploaded to six agencies simultanously.

Have a look at blackbox.global or read our conversations at www.facebook.com/groups/blackboxglobal .

+1 for Stock Submitter. Saves me a lot of time. I like some of the integrated tools they have as well.

If you go that route, be meticulous when uploading releases to the program and updating passwords to various sites. Spending more time to get it right early on saves a lot of headache down the road.

I have found their customer support to be amazing as well. They are in a different timezone than I am, but seem to get back to questions fairly quickly.
