I would like to try uploading photos to PhotoDune, and I tried to find all relevant information on how to prepare files for upload, but I managed find very little so far. Envato knowledge base is very vague (as usual), and I would appreciate if someone can point to a tutorial describing:
1. Naming convention for files (how to name JPG files that will be uploaded) if there is any? 2. What IPTC meta data should be used, how much information provided? 3. PhotoDune Submission Requirements specifies some IPTC meta elements including this one: IPTC-ObjectName. But, I can’t see this one anywhere and I tried several programs, none of the has this meta value (Photoshop, ACDSee Pro…). 4. Is there a limitation on what types of cameras (dslr, phones, compacts…) can be used?
This article on submission requirements gives some info on naming and tags – http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/193
As far as what camera you need, there is no set rule for what you can use as long as it’s at least 2MP in size and the quality is high enough to offer for sale. Unfortunately, even if you can capture 2MP pictures with your phone, the quality is rarely good enough to sell.
Thanks, but this still doesn’t answer all my questions. Can you give me more info about IPTC meta data, and especially IPTC-ObjectName?
