Hi guys, i am new to this and have uploaded some images of a Smartphone, the images were created on photoshop and designed to look a little little like the IPhone 5 and have the same screen ratio as the iPhone 5. As I am also a designer i use images like this alot to show how apps work and know the inportance of aspect ratios. The look of the Smartphone is fine as it does have many differences from the Iphone but my question is can i Tag ,iPhone 5, as i know that this is what i and many other designers with search for. I also what to be able to tell people that it has the same aspect ratio. any ideas?thanksAlexAndrews

No, you cannot keyword a non-editorial image with iPhone.  Sorry!

But, please correct me if I am wrong, I think you can say "same screen ratio as iPhone 5" in the description. At least that lets the buyer know once he looks at the image. Not as good as a keyword but better than nothing.

No, I don't think you can use any trademarked names in your title, description, or keywords unless it is an editorial image.

/OK, good to know. I thought description was more open than keywords. I guess you'd have to say "same screen ratio as the 5th interation smartphone from a popular fruit based technology company" wink


While I understand that trademark issues are involved it seems that in this case he has specifically designed his image to be useful because it is the same screen size as the iPhone5. He isn't saying his image is an iPhone5, he is using the iPhone5 as a common reference so that the buyer understands his image. This is the equivalent of saying "the building shown is the same height as the Transamerica building". We can't have images of the Transamerica building but can we not make the comparison?


Not trying to be difficult I'm really just curious. If it were mine I probably would have made the "same screen ratio..." statement. So I'm learning here.

You could put something as simple as "Perfect size for a 16:9 screen ratio smart phone" to give that buyer the information without actually using iPhone.

Thanks guys. On the iphone subject if i do upload images of an iphone 5 to istock in the editorial collection what do i put as the location and Date taken? I think Istockphoto needs a place for editorial product photos as i understand all that information is important for events or news but many editorial photos seem to be product shots or have products in them. the iphone is a good example of good editorial product photos as we use them all the time when showing app designs and when we make apps for an Iphone it makes sence that we use an image of an iphone and not a generic smartphone.
