;) We would never make such great software without the help of our users ;) So thank you ;)

In the latest update:

Images preparation and submit was partially rewritten.
In result, images preparation should now work way more fast, especially in large upload batches.

Important notes:
1. Minimal resolution of vector previews for Fotolia is now 15 Mpx, like on the site. Previously, StockSubmitter was upsizing small images for Fotolia. But since this is long process, we decided to remove this functionality.
Besides that, maximal resolution of vector previews for ShutterStock is 25 Mpx. 123rf has similar hidden limitation: if vector preview is too big, the vector will be silently discarded, and will never get to unfinished list.
So, we recommend to generate vector previews in range 15 - 25 Mpx.
2. All images, uploaded before update, will not be submitted to some of the agencies after the update. Please, remove them from unfinished lists and re-upload. It is caused by change of submit method to these agencies. It affects: Fotolia, DepositPhotos, 123rf, DreamsTime, Lori.
3. We are currently discussing with CreStock slight change on their site. If we will have agreement, CreStock submit will work just like other stocks submit, and images preparation for CreStock will work fast. Otherwise CreStock submit will stay the same as now, and it will keep increasing total image preparation time.
4. Issues with video submit to CanStockPhoto are solved.
5. Fixed the problem with cloning model releases on DreamsTime.

+ GraphicLeftOvers FTP upload is now working properly. Make sure you filled FTP login and password fields in site settings. You can find their values on the site in "Upload" section, at the right side of the page.

Due to recent changes on the sites, DepositPhotos, IStockPhoto and ShutterStock did not work for some time.
StockSubmitter is now updated, submit to these sites is working correctly again.

I've been using your software along several months and it seems great for working with stock agencies!

Here are some notes:

. When I check files for uploading to 7 sites at the same time the program uploads to them simultaneously, as a result of that I get timeouts many times (low bandwith for each site). Maybe it could be better a maximum of 2-3 sites simultaneous upload, and then the other pending files... (yes, i can do it manually, ;-)
. Some times the software seems to use the thumbnail for getting data, so it keeps saying the size is too small for some sites.... and I need to close and open again stockSubmitter
. Its a little confusing checking which photos are already uploaded to which sites, maybe there should be another excel-like view with thumbnail and columns with stock agencies (sortable) for getting in the same view all that stuff


Thanks and keep updating!

Set lower FTP thread count in program settings.

It can be caused by problems with reading metadata from the files.
Write to me via Skype so we can discuss this issue further

Set status to ignored for all sites except the one you want to see. Smiles in main window will show you the status for the site which is not ignored.

Hi again!

My setup for FTP Thread is 2.

Another one.... Depositphotos gives an error, "Login authentication failed (530)", And I've not changed my user/pass, in fact, it works fine through website... maybe something has changed.

I'll keep you updated with suggestions!

And about skype, I'm using a desktop here and I've not any microphone!, is it possible to use it as messenger (chat)??, if it's possible I'll install it...

Depositphotos gives same error when trying to connect through any FTP client. So the problem is no their side.

And yes, sure, I am using Skype as messenger mostly.

Deposit seems to work now...

Another site that I cannot get working is Pond5, stockSubmitter uploads files fine, but they are never submitted, are you aware of this?

Thanks for your support Niakris!, in fact, I've joined several new sites because your software works with them...

I've just uploaded two videos to pond5 for testing.... and one of them has been submitted, and the other one keeps without submitting when I enter in my pond5 account... it keeps in state "needs edit"...

Any idea?

It seems the program for some reason is not able to match file on the site with the file on your disk. Weird issue.
Mind writing to me via Skype to discuss this issue further?

There seems to be a problem with Fotolia and Istock.
Fotolia keeps submitting even though I don't upload pictures. I filled up my account yesterday - and today I got a message that I had used all my credits...all 377 :O
(I checked Fotolia, and luckily there wasn't 377 pictures in line for approval - only the ones I had actually uploaded ;) )
With Istock I keep getting "Unknown error". Sometimes the uploaded picture is submitted, but mostly I get an error. Saying 'the site has probably changed formats. Please update to a newer version'. But there is no updates :)

Otherwise I love your software! You have done an amazing job! :)

I have just updated IStockPhoto support in StockSubmitter in order to address the issue you have described. It should work now properly.

Issue with Fotolia, however, was not reported before. Send me your registration e-mail (one you supplied during registration in program) using forum private messages or Skype and I'll reset Fotolia submit counter for you.
If it will happen again - message me via Skype immediately.

v2.0 is not supported anymore.
Keep using v1.2, it is getting close to planned v2.0 functionality.

isignstock and photodune are not supported yet.

Not yet, sorry. You can use VirtualBox with MS Windows to run the software though.
