I was pleased today to see that GL is finally ready to start taking uploads again.  What has it been, a few weeks of uploads being suspended.

Then I checked my downloads at GL and was amazed to see that I've had seven already this morning.  At $3.12 each, those are some wonderful sales, a great way to start a Monday morning!

Not sure what those wonderful folks at GL are up to today (it's widely known that their revamped and renamed site is coming soon... but did they do something special in the last 24 hours?)  Whatever it is, keep it up, gang!

I would love to upload more at GL when I get sales there but have had only four sales in the last year. Maybe because I have priced them 6,-. It is not worth the trouble it seems...

Update on my earlier post... 11 downloads so far this morning.   They don't seem to have hit all at once, and the subject matter suggests they're not from the same buyer.  I'm wondering if GL launched an advertising campaign this morning?

Why is FTP upload even necessary?  GL has just about the easiest HTTP uploading out there.  How is FTP better in the case of GL?

In my case FTP is vital.  My workflow takes advantage of my web provider and their greater Internet connectivity.  When I submit a batch to Shutterstock, I first FTP it to my web provider and then send the files onto SS from there.  Then once they're reviewed, I can send the accepted images to all the other sites right from my website, instead of having to upload them from home.  Faster, more convenient and lets me use my local bandwidth while it's going on, and all because all the agencies support FTP.

Shorter answer: I don't use anybody's HTTP upload.  FTP's faster and more convenient for bulk uploads.

Hi disorderly,

I understand your need for FTP. It's definitely faster for sending lots of files. We recently moved servers and I am still working on implementing FTP so I will let you know when it's available again. Thanks for being patient!

No worries, danoph.  I'm not inconvenienced at the moment.  I just felt the need to explain to stockmarketer why his belief that FTP isn't necessary isn't universally true.
