Title: Instructions, help video and links for new Alamy Image Manager
Post by: Alamy on February 06, 2017, 08:49
Hi everyone,
 
It's great to see so many of you using the new image tools on Alamy to upload and annotate new content as well as go back and apply those optional extra tweaks to the older images.
 
We appreciate there may be a period of time where you need to get used to the new system and the newer ways of doing things, so hopefully these links will help.

just used it and it's much faster and better then it was before so good job for making things easier for us contributors.Thumbs up!

One thing I don't like as much as everything else, it would be nice when selecting a picture, if I dont hold down shift key then the one that is already selected (finished working on) is automatically diselected, so I dont have to manually diselect picture every time.

I know it is written how many images are we working on at the moment, but this bothers me a little.

If someone want to select more then one image, he can just use shift key or select more as you shown in video, if not then selecting one picture automaticaly diselect other.

Thanks for good work and sorry for my english!

Some problems

The ability to delete multiple tags in one go would be nice

The ability to apply tags across several images doesn't seem to work properly I followed the video and deleted some tags but the image manager doesn't show up duplicates.

Your you tube screen shows several images across the page but I have to close the favourites bar in order to get that kind of space.  It would ber nice to able to increase/decrease column widths

I would like to know more about how to edit the images with "Poor Discoverability".

What are the likely causes of Poor Discoverability?

Thanks!
