Hello contributors! It's been a while.
It's chilly and rainy here in Seattle, but no, we haven't been
hibernating. We've been working hard - looking at lots of new
images, adding more contributors into our fold, and getting ready
for some big improvements (more to come soon).
Check your inbox because the February newsletter has arrived!
We're already thinking spring in this installment; it's never too
early to shoot seasonal images that can be used next quarter.
The newsletter can also be found here.

Here's something you may not know. Our site will ask you to
clarify some terms before submitting your images in your Workspace.
This clarification process is called "disambiguation." Read on to
find out why we do this and how it helps your images be searchable
on our site.
The holidays are fast approaching! For this installment of our
Contributor Newsletter, we show you ways to take advantage of
festive-wintry-gastronomical occasions to get some great shots.
Think winter holidays, sports and awards season. We even asked
contributor Ruth Black (who was featured
here last month) to
give us some insight into her own standout food styling. Check your
inbox or read it here.

It's all about location, location, location! Buyers are looking
for fresh and recent images of places near and far. Since they ask
for them by name, proper identification is important when
keywording. If you can find it on a map, we probably have it in our
controlled vocabulary. Have images of the island Santorini? Go even
more specific and tell us if it's Fira or Oia. How about incredible
shots of the Great Sphinx? Keyword the iconic landmark as such and
we'll take care of broader terms like Giza, Upper Egypt, and Middle
East. How about the working class city of Youngstown, Ohio? Yep, we
When identifying places by their proper names, it's good to make
sure images "look" like what they are, or contain something iconic
that your average travler will recognize. If the image is very
abstracted, universally common, or of something atypical of the
location, you probably don't need to include the name.

formations near and far. How many do you know by name? Get inspired
to explore and shoot, wherever you are on the planet.
