Somewhere out there on the internet is a website developed by an iStocker (I think) that provides keyword suggestions based on iStock's categories. I've found links here to the site a few times, but I can't seem to locate them now. 

Does anyone know where I can find the site?

There was a thread awhile back promoting a website which I believe was findkeywords.com or something like that (hard for me tocheck since Im replying from a cellphone).  The site Im thinking of pulled keywords from a variety of stock sites that you could choose from.
For keywords I use the Cushystock 1.9x wizard which to me is all that Cushystock is good for.

Sorry, Dan...that's not the one.  The site I'm thinking of provides keyword suggestions starting with the category first, and then breaks them down into hierarchical order for further definition. 

Maybe this will help jog someone's memory......

Let's say you have a photo of a person.  There would be a section called "People" (just like there is a "People" category on iStock).  Under the people section there are multiple sections for things like eyes, hair, ethnicity, etc.  Under those sections are more keywords for further description, such as colors for the eyes/hair, the different ethnicities, etc.  The user checks a checkbox for the keywords they want to add. 

What I'm trying to do is create hierarchy keyword lists based on iStock's controlled vocabulary that I will import into Bridge and Lightroom, and that particular site would make their development go much faster.  There are some sites that sell lists, but I'm trying to save some $$$ by making it a DIY project.

I have the same problem. It seemed very useful. And I can not find it neither ???. I hope somebody will help us.

I remember a PDF file from Getty with that. I don't have it here, but at home, if you don't find it online.

Ah ha!!!   ;D  With a little help from a friend, we tracked it down.  It's on DeepMeta's website.  There used to be a link in the DeepMeta program, but the developers must have removed it.

Thanks for that. Quite an interesting app.

This looks like a pretty useful tool. Thanks for posting it!

I don't know if this is useful or not for me, but I am surprised by things I had never thought, like decade when the image was taken.

Yeah, that part was surprising. How many stock pictures are taken before 2000?

The entire Hulton Collection, otherwise some old photos which someone has model/property releases for.

I vaguely remember somebody was planning on doing something like that on their blog .. I think it was Yuri maybe. I don't know if he ever had it made though.
