Not seeing some categories in the category selection list, others used for similar images.

Hello,

I have a confusion. When I was checking similar images and their categories on Adobe, to see what keywords have been used by others, I saw that for similar images there are categories that I do not have in the category-selecting-list Adobe provided me as a contributor. For example: When checking other's rusty used tire rim images, I noticed that some of them used 'Spare Parts' as a category for tire rim image WHEN WE ONLY have the "Transport" option in OUR list. Same problem in some other categories too.

My question is, why it is different? And Why I am not seeing some categories in my list that others are using?

ALSO, it would help me to know why the lists are different? If I am not understanding something about how you work it, please let me know.

Thank you.

You can upload to Fotolia if you had an account there before the Adobe Stock Contributor Portal launched. If not, the site is closed to new contributors. Selecting categories and sub categories was a big pain point for many contributors as the process was fairly time consuming and produced little results. Most customers are not using categories to search so keeping the the main categories as generic and simple as possible is an advantage for contributors.

Hy

I think this content is from Fotolia.

Fotolia has more categories.

...Example from categories of Fotolia.:

Industry >>> Industiral Tools >>> Spare Parts

Spare Parts.jpg

Hi there,

I am using Adobe Stock to upload my Photos and not Fotolia and I saw for example that I only have the option animals, where others have the option dogs, for a dog photo.

So how can I change the category? It should be possible, shouldn`t it?

best regards

Nancy
