Just a rant on my part that IS still can't read my IPTC data via Mac OSX 10.6.2 and CS4 Photoshop. They sent me nearly the same response as they did over a year ago:
Thank you very much for your message.
We appreciate the frustration of the meta data not being read consistently. The error is not happening for everyone, even when they use similar processes and software.
Our team continues to work on this issue.
It is truly not worth the effort for me to re-enter all the data...even for IS.
I just give up with any ranting and complains about that. (I have about 10 or 15 posts about that)
From photo images they have about 50% ratio in reading keyword from IPTC but from vector images 0%.
Actually no big deal e.g. BigStock and canStock also dont read IPTC data from Vector pair jpg images.
So I stop ranting and have opened this File Infos during upload and Copy/Paste.
More fair from iStock will bee they confession that they sys dont read it or that they are unable to fix it.
OK Bla bla about Deep Sht Meta (allways in beta) which is not develop for non Intel processor and even in future if they fix they fix they Beta status they dont support vector and movie uploads and in this case we are in same circular problem about upload...
Copy/Paste keywords from FileInfo fast as you can and forget they promise that they will fix it...
month or two before I dont know how I browse thru they forum and find Thread about another third part application for mobile phones for like dashboard or widget called
Cattle or iCattle???
And PLS dont tell me anything about my poor wannabe joke that in my language iStock means Cattle.
Anyhow I dont except any good news from them in future...
Go as you go, tomorrow is new day...
Live long and prosper V
