How about the quality of the keywording at pixmac ? Anybody uploaded there and have some feedback on this ?

Don't be shocked, I keyworded an image of yours on Dreamtime. You missed 2 essential things. I came up with 20 more. Sometimes I act like Mother Theresa  ::)
Just my 2 cents... literally.  :P

I'm not shocked at all, I'm a lazy keyworder. I read a few articles about keywording now and try to give it more attention, but I'm probably still quite bad at it.
I didn't understand your comment about dreamtime. From your message I understand that you changed the keywords of the image directly in Dreamstime... Is that possible ?

It's always good to have a mother theresa around   ;D
Could you give me the link or id of the concerned photo, and the modifications you recommend ?

It's called keymentoring I guess. Everybody can suggest keywords for an image, but of course they have to be approved by a reviewer. The moment 10 or more are accepted, you get 2 cents. Sometimes I do it...

I forgot the link but it was a vista of a small Normandy port. I added the generic terms vista,panorama,landscape and the two main items you didn't keyword: lighthouse,pharo,tower and pier,jetty,wooden,quay. Since it's obviously a tourist destination, I also added tourism,travel. In general shots like those don't sell a lot in microstock since they're only usable in specific travel brochures etc... if you covered that place entirely, you might try Alamy RM for those type of shots.

Thanks for the keyword suggestion !! Feel free to make more. It is very appreciated. Seeing your portfolio, I understand that you don't do it for the 2c, so it's cool of you to help that way.
By the way, last week-end, I went on your website, and I really liked the way you give credit to your models, with their forte, etc...
I also got your generic model release. The one I used up to now got rejected in dreamstime because it didn't have the phone number of the model  >:(

Yes DT can be very strict on that. I got a release rejected once because the witness name was not in print. Make sure all names are in print writing. For now, I fill out all myself, except the signature. Girls tend to have tiny handwritings and when you resize the MRF, it might become unreadable.

Good advise. By print, you mean capital letters ?
I thought about writing them myself too, but didn't cause I thought it would look fake (I write everything) and then make some picasso style signature...
