Dear PhotoDuners,

I ve recently uploaded some of my images of Chester to the PhotoDune library but they all seem to come under the Misc category rather than allowing me to assign “Travel”, “Architecture” etc. There does not seem to be any option to assign category on the upload form and I can’t find any reference in the Support section.

Anyone any ideas?

Regards,

Pete

Hey Pete,

As far as PhotoDune is concerned categories are a vestigial appendage. PhotoDune is going to be tag & keyword driven.

We’d have completely removed categories if we could have – but it sits right at the core of the Envato marketplace app and fully removing it was too hard, so we just set a default of misc.

I e-mailed support with this very issue and I am still waiting for a reply from them. This thread has now answered my question. I think I will give support a miss and post on the forums next time around.

This should have been made clear in a post or thread somewhere unless I missed it completely.

Thanks for the clarification John.

Photodune definitely needs a homonym disambiguator. So if I type in “lock” it should prompt me with “did you mean: lock (security device) or lock (canal)”. Similarly “model” would suggest “model (hobbies and crafts) or model (person)”

Other stock photo sites have these and it leads to more efficient searching

fillerspace you are right, but that PhotoDune still in beta version so it still has a lot to fix.
Here’s what I noticed and what I think needs to be fixed:
Sort by relevance: descending or ascending – nothing happens when you change
Also for example: in the category “Animals” from the beginning showing the same images. I do not know on which system works “Sort By Relevance”, but I hope that we will not have to constantly watch one ugly duck on the front page :-)

I also noticed that there are duplicate files on PhotoDune:

There are many such duplicates, someone has learned how to cheat the system. It is no wonder that some authors have up to 20,000 images. I just want the best for PhotoDune.
