Maybe I'm mixing something up, but I thought that you need to categorize your images at pond5 (I submit to lots of websites).
I believe to remember that I had to categorize my images, but I can't find that field during submission. I keep lists of all categories for each website locally on my PC so I wonder whenever I wrongly renamed my list as "pond5". I used those lists with a tool I have written for myself and I don't want to keep categorizing if I don't need to.

Here is the list:
"abstract",   "aerials",   "alpha channel / greenscreen",   "archival",   "animation",  "animals / wildlife",   "backgrounds",   "buildings and monuments",   "business / commerce",   "celebrities / paparrazi",   "church and ministry",   "crowds",   "clouds",   "concepts",   "elements and effects",   "explosions",   "fire",   "food and drink",   "globes",   "health and beauty",   "holidays / celebrations",   "industry",   "lifestyle / people",   "lower thirds",   "loops / vj",   "medicine",   "military",   "music related",   "nature scenics",   "news / documentary",   "politics",   "retro",   "science",   "slow motion",   "sports",   "stereoscopic 3d",   "technology",   "textures",   "timelapse",   "transportation",   "travel",   "underwater",   "cities / urban scenics",   "verticals",   "virtual sets",   "transitions and wipes",   "weddings"

Is or was this Pond5? Any idea which other website this could be? Can I throw that away? Google search wasn't very helpful.

I don't recall ever putting categories in at P5, but I could have easily missed part of their submission process.

Those categories are for video.

I don't think they have categories for photos.

Sounds like Pond5. When they redesigned the site the got rid of categories.

It takes up time and buyers rarely use them or agencies could retrieve categories out of keywords...
