The idea behind buckets is they will allow more dynamic filtering of search results - to narrow down the results to particular types of image. Similarly to exclude (for example to exclude closeup shots).
This filtering process is not currently implemented directly.
Can get a preview of images in buckets. More features to be added.
For your own images, you can also assign buckets directly from the 'tagging box' when submitting, or editing an image.
It is important to note any given photo can be in one or many buckets. But also that many images won't be in any buckets.
Guidelines for what the various buckets means, and the types of images that should be found inside.
For example a macro shot of a flower. Shows some context (if none, its a CloseCrop), but not as much as most photos.
Taken as a very close crop of a subject - often with a telephoto lens.
A photo of a flower could be "Closeup", but its only "CloseCrop" too, if closely cropped to the flower itself.
A wideangle shot - either with a wideangle lens or a stitched panorama.
A vista with no real defined subject, covers views and looking 'out' from somewhere. (to be clear this is not about the orientation, ie landscape/portrait')
A "landscape" photo will quite often be a Wideangle too, but its perfectly valid to not be wideangle.
Shows unusual or interesting information.
Taken from off the ground.
Taken under a roof/shelter.
- With the intention that images will be added to this bucket when it's known the subject has now gone.
(Note: This bucket has been renamed from 'Historic' which was easily confused with the Geographical Context of similar name)
Shows a subject not always in the location shown, ie Transient to the area. Wouldn't expect to see the same subject in an hour, day or weeks time.
Shows/includes people in the shot. Must be only where people are the subject.
Shows wildlife indigenous to the general local area (for our purposes excludes Humans)
Showing vehicles and other modes of transport. The actual vehicle/carriage, rather than simply its course/track/railway.
