Tips for Keywording Your Images

One of the keys to success on Ayisee Stock is making sure your images are easy to find. This is where keywording comes in. When you add keywords and descriptions to your images, you make it easier for clients to find them when they’re searching for images on a specific topic.

To get the most out of keywording, try to think like a client. What keywords might they be using to search for images like yours? Spend some time looking at the images on Ayisee Stock to get a better idea of what kind of keywording other photographers are using. Images that are more conceptual and can be assigned many adjectives are more likely to be found on the first pages of search results.

Model and Property Releases

Finally, it’s important to be aware of the importance of model and property releases. If your images contain people or property, you’ll need to have the appropriate releases in place. This will ensure that your images are legally allowed to be used for commercial purposes.

You can download a model release form on our website. If your pictures include people’s faces and the person can be identified, you need to include a model release form when you upload each image. A model release form is signed by the model, the photographer, and a witness. This is a legal document that grants you the right to feature people in your photographs for commercial purposes.

The same applies to properties. It is required if you take pictures of protected objects such as other people’s art work or on private grounds. You can find the property release form here.

At Ayisee Stock, all our images are royalty-free and can be used according to the licensing terms. This means that once a customer buys one of your photos, they have the lifetime rights to use it according to either the Standard or Extended license type.

As a contributor to Ayisee Stock, you will earn 35% from each sale of your images.


Selling your photography on Ayisee Stock is a great way to make money from your work. With a supportive community, easy-to-use platform, and global reach, there’s no reason not to give it a try. Just sign up, upload your best works, and start earning!
