I was uploading today and just noticed they have a bulk edit tool.  WOW.. finally!  I always dreaded uploading there since those catagories and one at a time editing took so long.  Their bulk edit tool really speeds things up, well done bigstock.

One warning though:
make sure you click 'only edit categories' if that is what you want.  Most sites only edit catagories by default, but bigstock for some reason edits EVERYTHING by default, so if you click on 20 images they will ALL have the same keywords, title, and categories unless you click 'the box'

Has anyone used the New Uploaded Images Queue & Submission Area

For me it worked great, even with suggestion area for categories.

Tried it!  Hated it! I do not bulk upload so the OLD upload system worked fjust perfect for me. I could auto repopulate the information (any) from the previous image uploaded and that was fast for me and worked great. I asked them (BigStock) to keep both upload systems, but I see now that they did not do it.

So for me, I now upload about half as fast as before. That sucks!

Also if you make a mistake it will still count against your approval rate, so be careful!

None to very little instructions for using the uploader and filling in the information fields.

No mouse over information that is useable.

BigStock ..... Please put the old uploaded back on and let your photographers choose the one they like. I do not think that would be a difficult thing to do.

Yeah, I didn't like it as much as the auto-populate from the last image, but it isn't horrible. It works better for the categories, but those were pretty simple to navigate anyway. The real time cruncher is to come up with those 7-word descriptions. The only change that I really would have loved to see is to be able to edit your submitted files. It's easy to make mistakes when you upload files. I think you should be able to fix those mistakes when you catch them.

YES! It would be nice to fix your mistakes as you find them instead of waiting until after they have been approved. A spelling corrector would fix 99% of my mistakes! The 7 word description is easy for me. Who? What? Where? When? Done!

Do you agree that having both uploaders would be a nice improvement?

Definitely would be nice to have both. Most browsers have a spellcheck built in, so they underline misspelled words in data fields. It's worth checking out in your preferences.

>>>>>>The real time cruncher is to come up with those 7-word descriptions.

   usually i just insert 'a', 'the' , 'in' etc soemwhere to pad it to 7

i do like the new bulk edit - just wish it didnt default to selecdting the first image - it's easy to overlook that and end up including it with 6 other images in a diff category

I'm finding the new uploader confusing. I just uploaded 3 editorial images for the first time and forgot to check the "for editorial use only" box on all 3. Noticed it just as I hit the submit button on the third photo. I hate that you cannot go back and edit stuff while it's sitting in the queue. I could go back and make sure I did everything correctly. Instead I have to email support. Unless I am missing something and you can now edit all information once submitting. ???

Many folks hate that you cannot edit anything until after it is approved. That is IF it is approved. And the Snapshot Reviewers are now back on BigStock. So I won't be there anytime soon.
