I uploaded a file and it doesn't says anywhere, that maximum number of keywords is 30.

In fact, when I submit file for review and then go to  " Contributor area > My files > All my uploaded files"  and check file info all the keywords are there.

Ok, now I see, If you go with your mouse cursor over "?" it says maximum 30 keyword. But when I submit a file for review and check file info, all 35 keyword are there.

Hi all, just a quick note to let you know that you can still upload images with a maximum of 50 keywords. It's been determined that the sweet spot for keywords is between 20-30 so the number 30 you have read on the site is a recommendation and not a mandate or change. The language will be changed on the site asap.

Thank you Mat.  Very good to know.  So if I want I can upload as usual.

By sweet spot, do you mean that images with 20 to 30 keywords sell better and/or are better placed in the searches?

BTW - anyone tried converting credits?  I have several hundred credits I am trying to convert to get my monthly payout and I keep getting an error message saying I don't have enough credits to convert.  These are all credits from the sale of images.

Mat, or anyone, can you help with this?  What's up?

Mine said I had a certain number of credits available to convert but the figure was rounded up, check your balance and convert only the whole number available e.g. if your balance is 399.76 credits it will say you have 400 available to convert but when you try to it will say you do not have enough credits available. Convert 399 credits and it will let you.

That was my experience anyway.

It might be nice if they are going to completely change the interface that they give a bit of help. I keep getting errors because I haven't completely indexed, whatever that means, and I have no idea what I haven't done

...same here... no idea what I have done wrong

Converting credits for payout was working fine for me today morning. Was converting more than 700 Credits. Used Paypal for none US citizen. Possibly a software bug after the page upgrade.

Yes, you can upload as usual.

The most effective "best practice" is to add between 20-30 relevant, high quality keywords to maximize visibility in the search.

Thank you!  Much appreciated!   That was exactly what the issue turned out to be.  The cash out page rounded up to the nearest $.  When I  requested $1 less, it went through.

Thanks again Mat.  I will try to trim my future keywords to 30 if poseible. Guess my thousands of existing photos will be SOL tho.

Actually I would prefer for contributors that credits (amount we earned) would be $$ instead.

Seems you can now update keywords for existing images - isn't that new and improved?

No, keywords can't be edited.  You'll get an error message if you try.  In fact nothing can be changed except prices.  Shame, because I think having the facility to REDUCE the number of keywords would be good, particularly as they say that fewer keywords increases relevancy,  I can understand why they would want to stop people adding extra words though.

I could not upload files. Anyone else having this problem?

To me it seems like a re-skin and not a total update. I guess they had only a few months and needed a new interface so the customers can 'see' that there is a new owner.

but under the new skin there's the same old tripe.

i've mixed feelings about this, apart the Adobe logo it doesn't look "Adobish" at all ... i guess some Program Manager was ordered to make something quickly, but it will take some time before Fotolia joins the adobe family as a full time member.

Really, sure there some kind of software needs but I think it works against commercial interest. I have some slaves photos  with missing words (mistake was mine) Whats the way, deleted and uploaded again? please make the easy way like others.

Then allows us to edit the keywords, since I never heard about the policy to promote images with less keywords.

I think it's unfair for people that complied with what was allowed by FL to have now their old images search placement damaged by something like this.

hello,

is there a way to reorder keywords with the new design of Fotolia or it doesn't matter anymore?

thanks
