Has anyone noticed that the keywords on the Alamy site show up with the space missing? I have not seen this before. Can anyone tell me if I can leave them as is and be assured that they will work or do I need to go put back in the space between each key word? Right now it's one long jumbled word with commas separating each word.  I have 140 images I uploaded and do not want to go re-edit a boat load of keywords.

Are these all from this week?
The batch I uploaded last week have the comma then a space, as I 'managed' them as usual (on the 19th).
Maybe it changed since then (?).

Yes, from yesterday.

That's been happening to me for the last couple of weeks. At first I edited the space back in but that having to do that was so annoying that I stopped bothering and left the keywords with just a comma between them. I just checked and it seems that the keywords are treated separately this way once accepted so (in my experience) you don't need to re-space.

Got a response from Alamy and they said they've been tweaking things for the new system. The keywords should work fine with no spaces according the them and as Tawng pointed out.

Still, it's ugly and unprofessional looking, so why would they want it that way?

It happened to me also. Seems it is just the updates stuff as I got access to new image manager yesterday :)

I separate the keywords and key phrases with a semicolon (just for Alamy old interface) and they show up on the site as comma+space.
It means more work because I have to paste the keywords for each image uploaded to other agencies in notepad and relpace the comma+space with a semicolon but at least they show up as intended.

Whatever they do, they just can't keep it simple. Now with the new interface things are even more complicated with all the mandatory and optional tabs, supertag prioritizing, common and uncommon tags, categories, multiple values, common values..... Oh my, it hurts just to read so many instructions: http://www.alamy.com/myupload/help/AIM-InstructionManual.pdf#page=16

Good reading. The new system with supertags instead of three boxes?

I never used all three boxes, just the first two.
I thought that the new system puts all metadata in place, but no, I still have to go back and put the stars on supertags. What is wrong with prioritizing tags by ordering them, as we already do that for other agencies?
Also, batch editing images becomes even more complicated with common and uncommon tags.
