Keywording your images

Good keywords = good sales

Clients rarely search for images by browsing categories. They are more likely to use the search feature.
Good keywording is critical to good sales. Keyword with as many relevant terms as possible and your image is more likely to show up in the search results and thus more likely to sell. Include variations of words like 'pray', 'praying' and 'prayer'. Our editors do their best to add keywords we think are missing, but it's your job to try to give us the best keywords you can. Do not include keywords that are irrelevant to your image, or it may be rejected.

Romanization of Hebrew and Yiddish

We quite commonly use Hebrew and Yiddish words. There are no hard and fast rules in Hebrew-to-English transliteration, and many transliterations are an approximation due to lack of equivalence between the English and Hebrew alphabets. So we recommend to include as many variations as possible. Following are example of such words along with their variations:

Chanukah,Hanukkah,Hanukah,Hannukah,Chanuka,Chanukkah,Hanuka,Channukah
Chasidic,Hasidic,Hassidic
Kippah,Kipah,Kippa,Kipa
Matza,Matzah,Matzoth,Matzo,Matzoh,Matze
Parashah,Parasha,Parshah,Parsha
Pesach,Pessah,Pessakh
Safed,Tsfat,Tzfas,Tzfat
Shabbat,Shabat,Sabbath,Shabbos,Shabbes
Shavuot,Shavuoth,Shavuos
Sukkot,Sukos
Tallit,Talit,Tales,Talis
Tefillin,Tefilin,Tfilin

Keywording Tools

We suggest the use of the following tools. Just enter one or more keywords that best describe your image, then select images similar to yours from other photographers and let the application fetch more relevant keywords for you.
