When you upload an image, you must complete these three fields. Each field has a different role to play in helping customers find your image.
Choose a very short title which exactly describes the subject. Let’s look at this example:
The most appropriate Title would be something like “Woman on Telephone” as this describes exactly what the image is about.
This is how the Title appears in Google. We have drawn a red box round the Title. Notice how the Title has appeared in three separate places – excellent for attracting visitors directly from search engines.
And this is how the same Title will appear within FreeDigitalPhotos.net:
The Description field is optional, but we recommend it is used. There are two benefits of this field:
- it can be used to describe the image in full, using words that are not acceptable in the Keyword field. For example, it would be acceptable to say “Blonde woman sitting on a bench with brick wall in the background”. We would not allow “sitting, bench, brick, wall, background” as Keywords because they are incidental, but it is OK to use them in the Description
- words in the Description are picked up by search engines such as Google and can help attract visitors directly from search engine results pages.
The keywords are used by our site search and accuracy is vital to maintain the quality of our search results. We are publishing a more detailed guide to keywording shortly.
Our website recognises the IPTC standard for these fields. If you have already added this information in Photoshop or other software, you do no need to re-type the information. We will automatically retrieve it from the IPTC meta data.
