To edit your uploads, log in to your account, go to your dashboard, and click on “UPLOADS.”
You’ll find an “EDIT” button next to each item you’ve uploaded. Clicking this will take you to the “Edit Item” page, where you can update your metadata (see fields below for each media type). You can also update the title, description, keywords and price from “My Uploads” by clicking on each of these fields.
- Title (required)
- Description (optional)
- Keywords (required)
- Camera model or software used (optional)
- Date Created (optional)
- Location City (optional)
- Country (optional)
- Image Credit (optional) – name of artist/copyright owner
- Pricing (required)
In the “Title” field, enter a precise and descriptive title, 40-80 characters long, in English. (e.g. “African Oystercatcher Bird Feeding in Estuary, Eats Worm, 4K”).
If you’re adding a title for editorial content, please use the following format:
CITY, COUNTRY – MONTH/DAY/YEAR: Factual description of the image content (e.g. “PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC – 05/11/2017: Runners at Prague City Half Marathon”). Then scroll down to “Curator Notes” and leave a note for the curator indicating that the clip should be marked Editorial Use Only.
Setting Your Price
You have the freedom to set your own prices for your media, and you’ll earn an industry-leading commission on all sales.
If you’re unsure about how to price your files, you can change the Pricing Method to “LET POND5 SET MY PRICE” and we’ll take care of it for you. You can always change the prices later on if you want to experiment with different price points.
You can add up to 50 keywords to describe each uploaded file (the minimum is 5), but you’ll reach the best level of performance with 10-20 descriptive and precise keywords. Type in a search word to add a keyword and select it from the drop-down menu or hit “Enter” to add it.
Pond5 uses image-recognition software that can generate keywords automatically for your uploaded media. Please review all auto-generated keywords and remove any that don’t apply.
Note: You can disable Automatically Suggested Keywords on your Preferences page.
