I just took a peek at my images on thinkstock to see how many of my more recent files had made it over & how many were missing....does anybody know how the keywords get done over there?  They are definitely not all the same ones I would use (or used) on iStock when I uploaded the images.  For example "they" used the word "photography" on a food image.  I never used that word for any of my images let alone on a FOOD image.   Is there any way for us to edit our keywords on our images on the partner sites?  Seems like proper keywording might be helpful.

Photography is a normal keyword for a photograph ... differentiates it from an illustration.

to my knowledge, once the photo has migrated to PP, it is impossible to change the keywords. That is why it is important that the first submission keywords to be accurate and precise, because change in IS made on later will not be effective on the PP.

- Why do some of my keywords change when my files transfer to the partner sites?
The partner sites use the Getty Images Controlled Vocabulary (CV). While iStock and Getty Images have similar CVs, they are not identical. Some of our keywords map across to different keywords when they transfer to the partner sites.

Thanks.   Not sure I am completely happy with the Getty keywords but guess we're stuck if they suck huh?
