I feel I am ok at it but could be better. Are there any apps you could suggest or methods that work well for you?

Hi,

By saying you are OK, what tools you use and some comment on them?

Some of what I use:
aikeywording.com

i like shutterstock's suggestion tool, i use it to quickly get to 50 keywords and make sure i include a few important ones of my own, then copy over to other agencies

This is a huge topic and the question cannot be answered so simply.
On the one hand, opinions differ widely here, and even if we leave out iStock for a moment, there are differences between the agencies here too.

The easiest way would be, you post a few examples from your portfolio, then one could look specifically whether improvements are necessary here.

I do my own tagging, after trying a few apps, on Shutterstock. In my opinion, the suggestions here are still the best and, in my experience, are also adapted to certain trends. But even here there should be many different opinions.

There were only ever two tools, as far as I know, that used actual data on what buyers searched for when buying. They have now both been retired.

All the rest are much of a muchness (based on what other people have used) so whatever you find easier. SS's one is fine.

What were the two tools?

I only use Shutterstock keyword tool. It's helpful. Although they made a couple passive aggressive changes recently.
1. They reverse the keywords order when you copy them, so that the most relevant ones would be in the end. It doesn't matter for Shutterstock, but it matters for some other stocks.
2. They now give you the worst, ugliest pictures from the very bottom. Obviously they were created by beginner stockers. And we get the keywords from them.
Also, I don't like training Shutterstock's search engine by inputing keywords, picking relevant images and picking more relevant keywords.

There is a very nice keywording tool from Jacob Lund.
