I don't know if it was suggested before, but sometimes we have several images using same set of keywords. Can we have some kind of bulk action to assign keywords? Or, if we are doing just a single upload, maybe we can have an option like "choose keyword from images" (see image below). Thanks.

It would be far easier to do this in a program like Lightroom?

Never use it. Works for vectors?

Sorry - probably not!

One work-around would be to keyword in the Quick Edit view instead of the Edit view.  The keywords show up as a running text box.  You can drag the corner handle or bottom handle to re-size the box to show all the keywords, copy and then just go to the similar image Quick Edit view and paste them in the box.  You'll still want to go into the full edit view to make additional adjustments but it's a good way to quickly copy and paste keywords.

Nice tip! Thanks.  :D

You might try a little tool that I developed for keywording (multiple selected files), dragging/droping them to filezilla or directly to an agency website: http://stockphototagger.sourceforge.net/

For your own long term sanity, you really want your keywords to be in your image/illustration/media file where possible (PNG doesn't support it, for example, but Illustrator and Photoshop do).

Keywording in Deep Meta, any of the submission tools, or on an agency web site is a bad idea as a general workflow because you'll inevitably end up needing to submit the files somewhere else in the future and then be hunting around for somewhere to copy the keywords from.

embedding them is microstock 101 - this is what the submissions tools that I use do.  You want your metadate written directly into the files.
