Stockuploader was the best tool for uploading images and video to multiple websites.  And it's free.  Unfortunately, it ends its life Dec. 1st because  Sharky wants more time with his son.

That really sucks.  I for one really really really appreciate Sharky's efforts in creating this. 

What can we use after stockuploader is gone ?  There are no alternative free solutions. 



Igor's response below:

Hello everybody!

Stockuploader will not work when the site is down. it will be full of errors popping up and eventually crash. Since to upload you need internet access, i never really thought about the possibility that the webpage might not be reachable.
In the next days ill release a update that will give a error message and close the program if the site is not reachable. still better than a crash.. :D

The custom version for PC is already coded (Yesterday i was home alone for a few hours.. :D, that rarely happens..) and I might be starting to mail it out anytime soon.

It works with a name-tied-license and does not connect to the site in any way. Its completely disconnected from the webpage.

At first i wanted to give stockuploader to anybody who helped up to the moment i sent the email out. But given the HUGE amount of requests i got (over 100 emails in 2 days) and the huge amount of requests that landed in the trash (Such as "hey i think i should get a free full version because I used it every single day) I decided to give the people the possibility to donate until december 1st to get their copy. Any donation is fine.. even 1$ for a coffee. Also there are people who dont use it yet, and may start using it before december, and those would not have the opportunity to get the program after december. You may ask, why dont i give it just for free to everybody or release the source code? here are the answers:

1) I do belive strongly that giving is one of the most important things in life. And I appreciate who decided to give back to me without being forced to do so. There are people that donated 20 or more $ after about a week of usage, and there are Others that donated 0$ after 2 years of DAILY use. Well, I think that if stockuploader has to go, its mainly because there are too many people that take and dont give back. And once that this point is reached, I have the feeling that those who actually donated, and kept everybody afloat should be getting something for what they did. I speak of donation, but when I talk about donation i am also including everybody who did anything for stockuploader such as reviewers, translators, beta testers, and so on.. 

2) While i do belive in freeware, I do not belive in open source. There are countless hours of work behind the program, and I dont feel like putting it online and wait for the first guy to take it and start its own site profiting from my own work and maybe even selling the software. Moreover the program includes a license bought with the donations. (chilkat ftp2 library) and I cannot share the license online obviously.

Hope you all understand.. :)

I mean it with all the best intent.

Best regards

Igor

Simple just keyword and title the images then use the uploaders provided by the various agencies.

It's what I do it's no big deal

Won't it still work? I assume it just won't be updated any longer, but surely it should work as long as the OS stays the same.

Sounds like a great idea to make a  version that'll work after development is stopped. Where do we head to donate?

Will this include a Mac version too? I tried to get into the forum over there to touch base but alas, I haven't log in since we beta tested the Mac software and can't remember my login and stuff.... Anyway, If you are doing a Mac version, I will definitely donate and keep on using this software.

Sorry for the late reply, i was on vacation! Yes it includes the mac version too! Pc version will be sent out this week or at max the next, and then i will start editing the mac version. Dont know yet how long it will take for the mac version but i will follow the same order as the requests that come in.. By the way, i remember you so just type in the username you use here and it is ok even without donation.. :) thanks for your help!

They're being sent out in a day or so after you apply. I got mine in a day or less.

Weird. I got a donation confirmation from Paypal. I sent all those details through, but when I went to the site now, I get a message saying:

Donation Confirmation

Thank you for your donation!

Sorry, there was a problem identifying this donation. Please contact the site owner for more information.


The donation would have come from kennypaul2002@yahoo.com

Has anyone found a suitable replacement for MAC that adds keywords to files? The Photos app on MAC does it but it's not as good as stockuploader :(

I rely on Graphic Converter for keyboarding, building HTML catalogues and other tasks.  Inexpensive yet well maintained by its developer.
