We're pleased to announce some new features in DeepMeta v3.14 that make your keywording process even more efficient.
The keyword header section now has an extra "Preferences" icon, and a selector for one of 3 different views: Keywords, Suggestions and Cue Cards. Let's have a look at each one of them.
If the JPG/MOV file already has keywords embedded, this list is auto-populated. You can manually add keywords by typing them (comma-separated) in the keyword input box and pressing ENTER.
The already existing Keyword section can now optionally show popularity for each of the CV (Controlled Vocabulary) terms:
- If none of the bars are highlighted, the term is rarely being used for images/videos/illustrations on the Getty Images website.
- The more bars are highlighted, the more popular this term is.
Having this information available, can help you more quickly determine which terms might deserve a little more attention, and which ones are more exotic and rarely used.
If a title was already entered, it is automatically used for the "Keyword Suggestions" box. You can look up additional suggestions by typing one up to 4 words in the keyword input box, and clicking the "suggestions" (lightbulb) icon, or by pressing CTRL-K (Windows) or CMD-K (Mac)
If no keyword suggestions are found for the given phrase, DeepMeta will automatically retry with less words.
When new JPG/MOV/EPS files are added to DeepMeta, it will create a thumbnail and use this to obtain suggestions in the background. What happens behind the scenes is that a visual search is performed on the Getty Images site, and the most occurring keywords are collected.
See it as an automated way to get some inspiration from fellow contributors who have uploaded similar work. It can be a great source of ideas you did not think of.
The third view, obtained by clicking the right-most "cue card" icon, shows a number of "cheat sheets", with generic terms that can apply to many different images.
These are curated lists of grouped terms, that describe a specific aspect of your work. Following categories are currently available:
- Age (baby, child, teenager, young adult, ...
- Female gender (females, girls, young women, mature women, ...)
- Male gender (males, one boy only, teenage boys, only senior men, ...)
- Number of people (no people, one person, two people, group of people, ...)
- Composition (headshot, waist up, three quarter length, full length, ...)
- Viewpoint (lockdown, panning, tracking shot, aerial view, ...)
- Positive emotions (joy, friendship, curiosity, passion, ...)
- Negative emotions (fear, pain, guilt, sadness, ...)
If you've been using DeepMeta for some time, you might remember the "Keyword Wizard" section of the old website. Many users have requested for it to come back, and here it is, this time integrated right into the keywording section of DeepMeta itself.
To illustrate how important it is to include these types of generic keywords, have a look at the search pages of istockphoto.com and gettyimages.com, used by the customers:
With the click of a mouse, they can restrict their search to images only containing these terms. You want to make sure that your image winds up in that search if one of these terms applies to it.
If you have ideas for additional conceptual groups of often used terms, don't hesitate to contact us with your thoughts. Thank you!
Clicking the "cogwheel" icon in the keywording header will bring up the DeepMeta Preferences window, with the Keywording tab selected:
It provides a number of options to turn off or on, depending on your personal preferences.
We've put a lot of effort in making this a powerful and efficient new tool to further speed up your workflow.
