Newbie Discussion / Usability of keywording programs?
« on: March 22, 2013, 04:55 »
Hi everybody!
Finally I got my own testing images online and now I know roughly what the uploadprocess will look like. Actually... I don't like it. The reason is the keywording. At the moment I use ProStockMaster. Unfortunatley the keywording delivered by PSM is only effective with depositphotos. Shutterstock and Fotolia won't accept the keywording. Before I upload a whole bunch of photos I'd like to optimize this workflow to minimize my keywording and uploading hours. What can I do? Is there a program, that delivers better and more accepted keywords?
Thank you for your answers in advance!

By composings I am not talking about single photos but pictures made of several photographs like those in the portfolio of Vizerskaya:{%2225%22%3A%226%22}#a80ef49

Is she an exception because she is famous?

Hi there!
Im thinking about my portfolio and how to distribute it. I am quite into composings and I already have seen some on microstock sites. Can you tell me if those microstock sites are a good place for them?

@jsnover: You are right. Look - I stacked it so it would be extra sharp. I wanted to be extra good, exaggerated and became worse   :/   Well, I'll do the shot again. Practice is everything. Thx you guys!

thanks for posting the graph

Thank you for all your responses!
The noise comes from CombineZP imo. Right now I used one of the original Photos. This one is far better I believe. I removed the dots (came from the paper, other images haven't had those dots) and cleared some other dots. Now there are some left inside the injection and the BD-sign. But I would say that I head in the right direction?

Photo Critique / Re: Rejected on IS again

I got in after my 2nd rejection. I believe one of the main reasons I got in was my descrition: I told the reviewer why this picture was uploaded by me and what I want him to show with it.

Here is the picture:

As said: Pretty new to the microstock-scene and ready to learn. After 2 failed attempts this is one of the fotos who got me into istock. Well... the first 2 rejections led to some thinking about what Stockphotography is about - this is one of the results.
One observation made by me is: Most stockimages are a litte overexposed (+2/3), only a little. Would you agree on that?

@admins: Just wrote a long text - and couldn't read verification. After klick on 'Request another image' the whole text was gone... just a hint. I am sure about this beeing a but, not a feature    :P

To make the long story short now: Me noob, sent in picture, was rejected by fotolia, technical issues. I Photoshopped this picture (sharpened it) and to guarantee maximum sharpness CombineZP was used (5 pictures into one, resulted in a 20mb-jpeg). Could one of those 2 points be the reason for the rejection? And ist some psd as some kind of post-production useful at all?

Thx for your answers.

PS: Pretty sure that this question was already asked but couldn't find anything. I believe this could be important - some notes could be helpful therefore in one of those sticky topics. Just mentioning and don't take this as an insult - just writing this using some short sentences in my 2nd attempt (now: ctrl-a, ctrl-c  ;)   ).
