Fill in Title, Description and keywords. Each keyword is to be confirmed with <Enter> key. You can also use phrases such as blue sky.

Connecting file with stock agency

A file has to be connected with at least one stock agency. If the file is saved as exclusive in the stock agency, set the exclusivity in the form as well.
