KEYWORDS IN JOOMEO

Are you familiar with our keyword system? Here’s a little feature on keywords to refresh your memory, or introduce you to the subject.

IMPORT KEYWORDS (OR TAGS) FOR YOUR IMAGES INTO JOOMEO

The keywords you add to your images using photo processing software such as Lightroom or Photoshop can be retained in Joomeo. This will prove very useful when searching your albums using the search engine.

In order to save your photos’ keywords in your Joomeo space, you simply need to check the option ”import IPTC data keywords” in the “Import” section of your account preferences.

ADDING KEYWORDS TO YOUR IMAGES

You must use our keyword manager when you want to add keywords to your images on Joomeo. This can be accessed via the “TOOLS” menu or by clicking the “TAG” button at the bottom right of your Joomeo window.
ADDING KEYWORDS TO YOUR IMAGES

With the keyword manager open, here’s how to create a new keyword and add it to a photo or a video, or to all the photos and videos in an album in one go.

CREATING A KEYWORD AND ADDING IT TO A PHOTO OR AN ALBUM

Drag a keyword onto an album to add it to every file contained in the album.
Keywords added in this way will not be attached to the album but to the individual files themselves. This means they will also be attached to any other instances of the same image(s) contained in other albums.

IMPORTANT: Keywords added to files in Joomeo are not added to the source file itself. They will not appear in the IPTC data of the photos and videos you retrieve from your Joomeo space.

ACCESS ALL A FILE’S KEYWORDS VIA ITS PROPERTIES PANEL

The properties panel displays all the information associated with the selected file.


 
 

- In the heading you will find the filename of your photo, its weight in byte and the preview of the photo.

- General allows you set a note to your photo (useful when you search in your photos), indicate the shooting date, the uploading date and who has uploaded the photo into your space (you or the name of a contact).

- Legend lets you view and edit the photo caption.

- Keywords lets you view and delete keywords of the photo.

- EXIF allows you access to a EXIF data set of the photo.

A little reminder of the icons on Joomeo…


As you will have noticed, we have made a few modifications to your media library. The icons representing your albums are bigger and therefore more visible. It’s probably a good time to remind ourselves of the meaning of each one.

THE ICONS OF YOUR ALBUMS

Your album is private, you have not shared it with any contacts.
As account administrator, you are the only person to have access to it..

Your album is only visible to you and to the contacts with which you share it.
You can obviously share the album with as many contacts as you wish.

Your album is « public », which means that it is visible by your contacts.
Your new contacts will automatically have access to it, as soon as you will have added them to your contacts on Joomeo.

INFO + : To make your album « public », go to the « SHARE » tab of the album’s properties section, then click on the « RESTRICT THE ACCESS » button, to move it into the « OFF » position, as indicated below:

A photo book has been created using the album.
You can manage the sharing of this photo book in the right hand column that appears when you click on the album. The sharing options relate to all of the contacts with whom the album has been shared.

Share your photo books with your contacts

SHARE MANAGEMENT

Have you noticed? Your Joomeo space has change a little in the past few days! This is because we have added a major feature to our system: PHOTO BOOK SHARING with your contacts!
We have also used this opportunity to include some other small improvements, which we'll talk about later.

Let's focus on our topic of the day: how to share your photo books with your contacts.

A new interface for new features

you'll notice that all the albums for which you have created photo books display an extra little icon at the end of the line, as in this image

by clicking on an album accompanied by this icon, you will see a new column to the right of your grid of images … it all happens in this column!

This column allows you to launch a view of your photo book in one click.

You can also edit your photo book, duplicate it or simply delete it.

Note that when you duplicate your photo book, you add a new album to your media library containing all the photos used in the book.

The main information regarding your photo book (format, paper, type of cover, number of pages and unit price) are immediately visible and and you can place your order directly from this column.

Sharing with your contacts is managed from this column ! In 2 clicks, you can choose whether or not you authorize your contacts to see your photo book and order it.

Of course, this authorization concerns only those contacts with whom you have shared the photo book album.

IMPORTANT: You can still access all your photo books directly by the photo book manager, which is accessible via the "PHOTO LAB / MY PHOTO BOOKS" menu.

2 additional new features for your comfort

Bigger icons to make the media library easier to read The most observant will have noticed that we have significantly enlarged the icons in the media library! Your albums and your folders are much more readable, for greatly improved comfort.

Improvement of the system of deletion of folders and their contents With the same aim of offering improved ergonomics and comfort, it is now possible to delete a folder and all its contents in a single stroke!

A gain of precious time when sorting your media library. But attention: any deletion is final!Once you have validated all the alerts of our system and accepted to delete the files from your personal space, it is impossible to go back and restore those files that were found only in the deleted folder! Be careful!

Olivier Lerme, Rock Concert Photographer..

HOW TO CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF A COMPLET SET IN A FEW PHOTOS? OLIVIER LERME TELLS US MORE ABOUT THIS…

Joomeo:
“How did you become a photographer?”

Olivier Lerme:
“I came to photography through music, my first passion.

After hanging out in my newrocks in many concert halls, the urge to convey the emotions raised by the performances of the artists became stronger and stronger.
When you attend a concert, the emotions you feel may be different from somebody else’s; it’s the same when you watch a photograph.
A photograph is a snapshot, a piece of life, an emotion, a testimony, a legacy.

If we take for granted that a photograph is the equivalent of a speech, we must wonder which emotions it has to convey, the way people will perceive it, what will they feel when watching it ?
As well as a song a photograph can be felt and interpreted in different ways.

Shooting a live concert is hard work because many factors intervene.
You have to master the intensity of the concerts, the feelings of the musicians; you have to take into account the lights and light effects, and you get a very short time since you can shoot during three or four songs only and try to retransmit a whole concert.

In order to make good concert photographs, you must understand and appreciate the artist and his universe (either mainstream, pop, trash or gothic), because you won’t shoot a black metal group as jazz or blues in the same way.
You have to react very quickly and be lucky because THE good snapshot can be taken at a unique time, you have to catch the right instant in your…

What I prefer when shooting a concert is playing with the lights, waiting for the moment when the artist is perfectly lit, and the expression on his face unique.”

In this day of monsters and frightening creatures, let’s have a look to the work of Olivier through a great and strange diaporama…
