I see that one keyword in iStock's CV is Full Frame.
I wonder if you could give me some indications on when and where this is used correctly, and when and where this should not be used. It is not too clear to me.

When the whole of the subject fills the frame, then that is 'full frame'. For example, when a vase is photographed in vertical format and takes up nearly all of the viewing space.
It does not apply to close-ups that show only a part of the subject.

Thanks. What would then be the difference with the other CV word Whole? Whole asks to be "disambiguated" with either Full length or Whole. Perhaps I can used Whole - Whole to indicate many whole apples, for instance, meaning not bitten. But full length? In what would it differ with Full frame?

I would guess in an instance that you had, say, a scene of a woman looking at a full length (shoulders to feet) dress, since it isn't filling the entire frame.
