Underwater Photoshop

Keywords are essential for finding images.

Stock photography libraries often strip out keywords from IPTC fields and enter them into their database. Adobe Bridge does something similar in that you can search your images across your entire hard drive by keyword, which is an incredibly efficient way of locating an image without having to look at it. It is therefore important to get your keywording correct the first time.

Problems to avoid When keywording try not to use too many words and try to be extremely succinct about the words that you do use.

Adobe Bridge keeps a dictionary of all the words that you have previously used so that you can whistle them up later. I do not find this terrifically helpful as it soon becomes to big to be usable. Anyway, you usually submit as many different images as you possibly can to optimize your revenue with stock libraries and therefore you really don’t want to be re-using keywords.
