Keywording Locations

Keywording Locations

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 have that.


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.

Survey Prize Winner

Survey Prize Winner

Without our contributors we would just be peanut butter with no jelly, Bodoni with no serif.  This is why we are constantly evaluating the way we do things, hoping to make them better for everyone involved. Recently we asked for contributors to take part in our communications survey and lend a little feedback of their own with the incentive of winning one of our Helvetica mugs. There were some awesome suggestions that gave us ideas of what our contributors want to see.  A Helvetica mug is boxed and on its way to Bbar, who was picked at random. Get the hot water ready!  You can check out their portfolio here.


Thanks to all who pitched in suggestions and opinions!

Veer Subscriptions is live

Veer Subscriptions is live

A few months ago, we let you know that we'd be launching a new subscription offering for customers this winter. That time has come, and we're pleased to announce that Veer Subscriptions, featuring your high-quality commercial images, is now live and open for business.

Veer was already making it easier to be creative by offering customers an uncomplicated shopping experience using cash or prepaid credits. Now buyers also have the option to use convenient monthly or yearly subscription plans to make regular high-volume purchases.

We've made it simple for customers to navigate between Veer and Veer Subscriptions, so they can purchase extended licenses for your images when they download as part of their subscription plan. That means a great buying experience for the customer turns into additional royalties for you. We're also proud of the fact that the standard subscription royalties we're offering you are some of the highest in the industry. You can see a detailed breakdown of our rates here.

The image upload process remains the same. Your images make their way to Veer Subscriptions simply by existing at Veer, and your subscription royalties will be displayed in your regular dashboard. There's no fuss, and more opportunities to earn.

For more information about how Veer Subscriptions works, check out our FAQ.
