Title: Good programm for keywording, uploading, submitting
Post by: Anya on August 14, 2017, 06:51
Hi there,

I'm not new to microstock, but  I only manage to produce 20-30 photos per month. Up to now I have done all the keywording and uploading myself, but finally I want to fasten my workflow. Therefore I am looking for a programm to help me with keywording, uploading, submitting, and maybe even some sales statistics.

Can you recommend something? Would Stocksubmitter be a good choice for me?

Thank you for your help!

I use Stock Submitter all the time now - great program. I wrote about it here:

I'm a bit biased since I built both, but for keywording have a look at https://www.keyword.io/tool/stock-photo-research (https://www.keyword.io/tool/stock-photo-research) and for uploading at https://dropstock.io (https://dropstock.io) and let me know what you think :)

Sorry, that I did not react sooner. After a change to a new computer nothing works any more like it did before. Very stressful!
@Steve: Thank you for your reviews, that helps a lot!
@rjung: I'll try to have a look into your programm soon.

Give Xpiks a try, very easy to use and free.

Unfortunately, only StockSubmitter offers automatic submission (filling of all the metadata fields on the agency website and sending the files to review)

Unfortunately, even after buying stocksubmitter you wouldnt be able to get support from either the developer nor their "live support" ...and neither does Nikaris answer messages sent to him. They just dont like people who suggest new options, point out bugs, etc.
The software would not attach model releases to files at times (more often than not) and would submit images that way after which the agency wold reject your photos / videos. Now as you know  pond5 likes to have videos renamed after they had been sent once so  there you go , you can go try again.

The idea behind stocksubmitter is great but the support is terrible.

Most of our users would disagree with you.
You can always contact me on mephisto123@gmail.com or in Telegram (Netherspite) and get a response within minutes (unless it's night time in EEST  timezone), even on weekends.
If you still experience that release problem you can try contacting me to resolve it.

I do apologize for jumping to conclusions way to early, most of the errors I am facing on a daily basis is due to sites malfunctioning and not processing attached releases. Support is still lacking but should be back to normal soon, I was told.
