+ Fixed a bug in model release list saving
+ Added possibility to change default metadata reading priority.

Metadata reading priority

Previously, StockSubmitter was reading metadata in the order causing least problems.
But in some rare cases some users were experiencing problems with metadata, so I've added a possibility to set some type of metadata to be readed first (EXIF / IPTC / XMP). To set it, use combobox above directory list in main program window. Default (old) order is called "Auto".
If metadata is being read correctly using "Auto" order, don't change it.
If you're expriencing some problems (metadata is read incorrectly / displayed weirdly) - try other options.

Title: Re: Releases
Post by: Niakris on March 30, 2011, 07:09
 ;)

Dreamstime is not allowing submission of more than 18 images per week anymore due to high upload amounts.
StockSubmitter didn't know about this limitation and was incorrectly increasing submission counters for Dreamstime before today's update, when I've fixed it (added right processing of the error message DreamsTime is giving in case of reached limit). So if you have your submission counters increased incorrectly, PM me your StockSubmitter registration e-mail and I'll reset counter for DreamsTime for you.
Title: Re: Releases
Post by: Niakris on April 03, 2011, 09:35
+ Added requesting of FTP uploads processing for ShutterStock in FTP mode. Sometimes ShutterStock was waiting for this request before processing any of uploaded files.
+ Added experimental support of submitting multiple files in single batch to ShutterStock in FTP mode. If it will work flawlessly, I will add this support in HTTP mode aswell. Note, what it works only for images without releases.
+ Fixed wrong sorting of directories in explorer panel in some cases
+ Added processing of error message on CreStock, displayed when user did not accept new Agreement yet.

For few days, there won't be any major changes in functionality of the program, because I want to make it more stable.
I've fixed lots of various bugs in past 4 days and added new crash handler, what is able to send crash reports to me, so I can fix crashes asap.

Please, if program crashes, fill in description of where did u encounter a crash and press "Send report" button. It will help me to make program more stable.

No I am not, just uploaded a file on their website and it is pending validation
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on September 05, 2011, 07:27
weird

try again, and if it will be stuck for more than 2 minutes, close program, take "Trace.txt" file from the program directory, open it with Notepad, remove all passwords (using Find and replace) and send it to me : mephisto123@gmail.com
This way I'll be able to find the reason of this issue and probably fix it.
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: MicrostockExp on September 05, 2011, 08:20
Ok looks like it works now :)
however I had the following things:
IS do not work anymore
123rf gives some error message but images are uploaded and submitted
any way to read the correct descripton on Veer, it displays only the file name?

Cheers
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on September 06, 2011, 08:37
I'm aware of IS issue, will fix it as soon as possible. Have very very very crap internet connection atm:(

What kind of error message you are getting with 123rf?

As of Veer, this means what files were not submitted, only uploaded.
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: MicrostockExp on September 06, 2011, 08:51
Ok I ll take a screenshot of the 123rf when i get it again.
For Veer I go to the website to do the fimal submission but on the description field it takes the file name, I on't think it is good for the search engine.

Same thing for SS, description field is filed with the title not good for search engine again :-\
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on September 06, 2011, 12:54
As I said, such descriptions mean only what these files were never submitted by the program, but uploaded by it.

Program sets such descriptions to identify files during submission process. It'll get replaced by normal descriptions during that process normally. If it does not, it means files were never submitted by the program.

Post by: Niakris on February 27, 2012, 12:53
StockSubmitter v1.2 is released.

FTP upload system is completely rewritten. It should make FTP upload more stable and way faster.
Besides that, upload statistics (progress, speed, ETR) is now more accurate.
Of course, such big update can't be released without issues and bugs. So, if you will have any issues, please write on this forum, or directly to my Skype (landofrain). And send reports ;)

Known issues:
- I am still unable to make FTP upload working for Veer. Don't know what's the reason, but it does not work even with FileZilla. If you have any useful information about this issue - feel free to send it to me :)
- GraphicLeftovers' FTP is giving low disk space error when I try to upload any file to it. Same issue with FileZilla. May be it's GL's temporary problems.

There were some problems with uploading additional vector format to DreamsTime during submit.
Please re-check if additional vector format was correctly uploaded for all images submitted since today.
And keep checking for all new images submitted to DreamsTime until I'll announce it is working as supposed.

Title: Re: Updates
Post by: ginasanders on March 02, 2012, 09:54
Yes very great software!  Thanks for your work!
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on March 04, 2012, 07:33
;) 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.
Title: Re: Updates

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!

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...
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on April 23, 2012, 17:27
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.
Title: Re: Updates

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...
Title: Re: Updates

Any idea?
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on April 27, 2012, 11:15
It seems the program for some reason is not able to match file on the site with the file on your disk. Weird issue.

Title: Re: Updates
Post by: kjorgen on May 22, 2012, 04:04
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

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 :)

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 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.

Niakris

Did you increase the price of your services? I paid 20 dollars for a months to upload about 40 pictures only.
Before $20  used to last for few months....
If it is the case your service that I like is not competitive anymore.....

Some of our users are using Parallels Desktop. It works fine, you just need to install .NET Framework 2 and 4.

Submitting <33 images per month per site is free.
Submitting 34..250 images per month per site costs 10$
Submitting 251..400 images per month per site costs 20$
Submitting 401..750 images per month per site costs 30$
Submitting >750 images per month per site costs 40$

So basicly to submit 40 images per month you can either use free version and limit your submissions to 33 per month or buy any of packages to submit up to 250 images per month (1 month = 10$ per month, 6 months = 8.7$ per month, 12 months = 7.5$ per month).

Paid accounts were never cheaper than 10$/month, so i guess you either was using free account or not remembering it correctly.
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: MicrostockExp on August 30, 2012, 20:09
No I never used free account so far always paid, but I think it was not per month before just by number of submission.
Anyway if I send 40 pictures a months does not make sense to paid $10 for it... maybe you should have more price categories between 34 and 250 started at $ 5 I think lot of people will be interested...

Cheers

Title: Re: Updates

In the latest update:

+ ShutterStock support improved, the program now takes care about slow FTP processing on ShutterStock.
The program does not remove EPS without JPGs if ShutterStock reports there are some. Instead, it resets submit timer and tries to submit again later, allowing ShutterStock to complete processing of vector images.
The submit process may take way longer due to this change, but it should become more stable.
It is recommended to turn off Automatic FTP processing in ShutterStock settings, if this option is enabled, ShutterStock produces corrupted files sometimes.

+ Added limitations for simultaneous FTP uploads for each individual agency. Default is 2.

Title: Re: Updates

Well, user experience is more important.

But anyway, you need to make sure antivirus/firewall software is not blocking the program from using the network, because otherwise the program obviously can not connect to stock sites to upload and submit your images.

Launched alpha-version of new Statistics feature.
It is available in menu: Tools -> Statistics

Charts are shown in browser like that:

(http://microstocksubmit.com/statsalpha.png)

Earnings data has to be sent to program server to display charts, so StockSubmitter will ask permission to do that when you open Statistics.
This data will not be used in any other way and will be removed after displaying charts.
Do not permit this operation and launch Statistics if you don't trust the program.

Data collection is started in one of the last updates so charts can show only 2-4 last days yet.
More often you launch the program (or keep it running) - more detailed charts will be. The statistics is being built basing on balance updates (shown to you by the program in the balloons).
Statistics will be interpolated if there is not enough data.

There can be bugs/problems since this is alpha release of the feature. Do not hesitate to contact me using Skype (landofrain) or these forums.
There is no design yet, only the charts.

I want to ask on Alamy autosubmitting. Leaf has asked it before. It does not work also for me - program tries but nothing happens.

It would be great to add to "submit parameters" all the attributes that must be filled in order image is for sale (how many people on image, if there is property release, if the image is altered, license type ...). And it would be great that program fills the essential keywords automatically from the  first keywords up to the limit of 50 characters.
Submitting to Alamy is one of the worst so it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Post by: Niakris on February 28, 2013, 09:31
No, this keyword is used to find matching file on your hard drive to submit it.
Fotolia lists all keywords from originally uploaded image in IPTC Information section regardless of what meta was supplied during submit. But this section is for your information only, it does not affect approval nor is visible to buyers.
The issue you reported with DT is weird though, it should never happen under normal circumstances.

Model/Property releases attaching is disabled right now.
We are waiting for them to finish with their new MR/PR system. As soon as it is ready, we'll get MR/PR attachment working once again.

Vectors and releases support is tested and working correctly.
Photo support should work correct too but wasnt tested because of upload limit.
If you will encounter any problems with uploading photos, report to Skype and we'll try to sort it out.

+ Metadata save system was modified.

We've taken measures to solve issues with program crashes and files removal in some cases of simultaneous operations.
Moreover, files are now backed up automatically during each save with .jpg_original extension in the same folder.
You can remove them safely if the main file is okay.
Any feedback regarding new system is welcome, especially if you had described problems before.

In the latest update:

1. New advanced keyword editor is introduced.
You can click corresponding button at Keywords section in metadata to open it.
Features of the advanced editor: drag-and-drop manual keyword sorting; alphabetical and random automatic keyword sorting; removing duplicates automatically or specific keywords manually.
IStockPhoto keyword terms editor button is moved there too.

2. IStockPhoto keyword terms editor now has "memory" feature.
It works like this:
Every time you save IStockPhoto keyword terms for some file the editor remembers your choices. If you did choose other terms for these keywords earlier they will be overridden by new choices.
When you open editor for next files containing same keywords, the editor will automatically check terms you have chosen previous time.
You can turn off this feature in program settings.

3. ShutterStock uploading improved; it should improve matching EPS+JPG on the server side.

4. PixtaStock support is updated once again. Photo and vector uploading should work again.

5. Model release list columns are now resized automatically to fit content.

Illustration/art checkbox should now properly affect upload type for Pixta.

Added mass keywords editing feature.

How does it work?
Keyword editing box no longer becomes empty if you select multiple files with different keywords. All keywords from all selected images are now accumulated in this box. When you edit them, you edit them for all selected files.

How can this be used?
Few examples:
- select some files, enter Advanced keywords editor, remove some of the keywords, deselect files. all keywords you have removed will be gone from ALL selected files without touching the rest.
- select some files, enter Advanced keywords editor, reorder some of the keywords, deselect files. all keywords you have reordered will have new order in ALL selected files without touching the rest.
- select some files, type in some additional keywords in the keywords edit box (or add them using Advanced editor), deselect files. added keywords will be appended to ALL selected files without touching the rest.

Beware, this functionality is new and it can contain errors. If you encounter any new problems while editing keywords - write to forum or message me via Skype (landofrain) - we'll sort this ;) To make sure problems are solved asap, please provide all possible details regarding the problem and reproducing it.

Hi Niakris!

I have upgraded today. Now I see, that the "Eye-Button" for checking duplicat keywords is now to find under "advanced editor". I write my keywords in Lightroom in German language. Than an automatic translate software write the english keywords. So there are some duplicated keywords. In the past I have killed dulicates keywords very quickly. Now I must open advenced editor for every image, save, close and so on.

Is it possible to make the "Eye-Button" additionally as before? I think there is place enough?

I have the same issue.
Could you also change keyword limitation? Currently one have only 50 (default) or 80 to choose from. I would love to limit my keywords to 30 or maybe even 20 I don't think it should be a big problem to give one more options. Also congrats Submitter is getting constantly better and more stable, thank you!
Search phrase doesn't matter even the most basic ones like cat, ear, water etc. no results!

I recommend to upload some images directly to the GR website, get used to the guidelines and get your images accepted first. After that you can upload images using StockSubmitter with respect to GraphicRiver requirements.

I am a newbie as far as uploading my photos to any stock agency. Tried to upload to Shutter Stock last week. I find that task daunting as yet. Got emails back today saying that they needed 7 out of the ten to be accepted, but not what was wrong with them. Oh well another day I guess. Am using a Canon 30D to shoot with so I think my tech things are ok as far as quality equipment. Not sure about sizes pixels wide and long but want to learn that. Any comments would help, thanks.

What's new:
- Photos and vectors are now uploaded via HTTP. It should solve FTP processing issues (previously sometimes files took too long to appear in unfinished section; EPS or JPG files got lost; some images got corrupted)
- The program now submits all files in the unfinished list page by page and does not stop after first page

With this new depositphotos procedure any chance for a video upload?
Thanx
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on May 23, 2014, 07:16
It depends on them only. I asked them to add displaying of original file names in unfinished media list. It would allow to make video submission possible and won't require their developers to spend more than 5-10 minutes.
However, they didn't respond yet.
You can write to their support and request the same thing (displaying of original file names in unfinished media list) if you want to speed up things.

Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on June 06, 2014, 06:51
This basically means that the program can't write metadata to images.
1. Please make sure you're starting the program by Start -> Programs -> StockSubmitter menu or by shortcut copied from there and not by anything else.
2. If that does not help, try reinstalling the program from the website: http://stocksubmitter.com/ (http://stocksubmitter.com/)
3. If that does not help either, please contact me via Skype (landofrain) so we can try to fix it.

Well, the only difference when uploading regular RF image and editorial image is one check box "Editorial use only" on the first page just below browse.
I am not programer, but on istock you can use only HTTP (not FTP for images). So if you can check that box before uploading, that will be enough. Everithing else is the same.

Normally it should be automatically solved but if it couldn't three times in a row it'll ask you for it.
You won't need to enter it again once you'll enter it successfully once.
So keep trying to enter it correctly and eventually you'll get in.

I used to be able to upload to Vectorstock despite their 30 keywords limit, and the images would get accepted even though they had 30+ keywords. The keywords would be trimmed on Vectorstock's end. Now, it's become impossible to upload because Stocksubmitter says I don't meet the requirements.

I don't feel like deleting keywords from my files solely for Vectorstock, so could you perhaps not make it a requirement?

It should greatly increase speed of the metadata writing and eliminate program crashes due to the concurrent access to files, incl. during autosave.

Please report any problems you'll encounter, we'll resolve them asap.

Is there a way I can prevent this from happening?

Let me know when you'll send the report please.

As of general advices, I'd recommend skipping uploading of problematic file and going on with other files.
Most likely this file will be successfully uploaded later (after several days when Dissolve will purge partially uploaded files).

It is caused by the iStock answering with internal server errors and gateway errors to authorization request.
We probably have to wait until they fix that.

Videos can now be uploaded to YouTube.

By default StockSubmitter watermark will be overlayed. You can choose your own watermark (any PNG with alpha channel will work) or turn off watermarking completely.
Any text specified in "Portfolio links" field will be appended to description of all videos.
Videos will be uploaded in original resolution.

During 2015 we continued to actively extend program functionality and making microstock contributors life easier. These efforts were not left unnoticed: our user base is constantly growing and has reached more than 2000 active users. More than 25 millions of files were submitted using the program to microstock agencies during 2015.

Despite constant user base growth we keep our famous support quality that many more other commercial products are lacking. We are not going to compromise support quality and speed of developing and updating our services.

To achieve that we're expanding our team: we've already hired a dedicated developer for Mac OS X version of the program to let our Mac OS X users to use the program natively without the need to complicate it with virtual machines. In the new 2016 year we're planning to expand the team further to provide our users with the same high quality while developing new services. Some new services for professional users and studios are already planned to increase their earnings.

Expanding the team is of course costy and it's not possible to grow extensively like in other areas because microstock industry is a very narrow niche and it's possible size is limited.

Considering all of the above, high end subscription plans will be corrected since 15th January 2016.
Professional subscription plan will cost 40 per month and its submission limits will be increased to 1000.
Unlimited subscription plan will cost 60 per month.
Low and middle end subscription plans (Starter, Lite, Casual) will be left intact: we understand that beginner contributors and those who contribute to microstock agencies irregularly cannot allow themselves to spend more money for their work automation tool.
High end subscription users will soon have access to the new services that will (as we believe) compensate increase of the subscription cost by increasing earnings.

All active subscriptions purchased before 15th January 2016 will not be changed.

+ Implemented support for displaying captcha for Envato agencies.

+ Added a window to specify extra metadata fields (country, 3D render flag)

The window is available via "Other parameters -> Other metadata".
Country will be used for agencies that require specifying it (for example, Fotolia).
3D render flag will make program submitting the illustration as photo to iStock (according to their requirements).

+ Country remembered in the other metadata window will be used as a default country for releases if remembering all the release fields is disabled.

+ Added directory rename command in directories' context menu in directory tree.

+ Images selection control from keyboard is improved.

If leftmost or rightmost image is selected in a row and you try to press left or right arrow keys - the program will move the selection to the previous or next row automatically.

+ Selecting release in attached releases list will highlight it in all releases list as well now.

+ Drive labels are now displayed in the directory tree.

+ Vector keyword checking for raster images can now be disabled in settings.

+ Images are now uploaded to agencies in the order they're displayed in the list (sorting will matter).

+ Added "randomly" sorting method for images in the list.

+ Added an option to "Use description instead of title" that replaced an old similar option and is now working for Fotolia and VideoBlocks.

+ Added an option to specify a note for an image.

You can set it in image's context menu and view in image's popup tooltip.

+ When searchbar is opened the focus will automatically be set to the query string field.

+ You can control selected image from any program part now using Alt+Left arrow and Alt+Right arrow keys.

+ Release file orientation is now preserved when automatically downsizing releases.

+ Fixed many other small issues.

+ Added support for 500px agency.

+ Attached releases management interface has been improved. There are now 3 controls:

1. Input field where you can begin entering release name. Program will start showing dropdown list with matching releases and release groups sorted by usage frequency. Choosing any of them will attach corresponding releases to files. For 1 selected release it will be added, for multiple selected releases they will replace currently attached releases.
2. A minus button: clicking this button will open menu with the list of attached releases; selecting any item will remove image from attached.
3. A button with dots: clicking this button will open releases editing and attaching window just like "Releases" button did before.

+ When submitting to VideoHive, the program will automatically cut forbidden phrases from the title:
slow motion, macro, close-up, Hd , 1920, 4K

+ Added "Show in folder" command to context menu for releases in release editing window. It will open Windows Explorer highlighting the release file.

+ Added "Force upload" command to the context menu for images, allowing to try to set "ready to upload" status for selected agencies and start uploading there.

+ Added support for uploading video to CreativeMarket.

You need to upload the video to Youtube with StockSubmitter first so it can be used as a video preview.
Unfortunately, if you had uploaded the video to Youtube more than approximately a month ago you will have to re-upload it as the program was not storing the Youtube video ID.
You can check if the program has the Youtube video ID stored easily by checking its CreativeMarket status - if it doesn't have it the status will be red with the corresponding mesage.

The program can add a watermark to the JPEG preview of your video (by default it is a transparent image with semi-transparent "VIDEO FOOTAGE" text). You can choose your own watermark in the CreativeMarket settings in the program.

The program can also add a link to the newly created CreativeMarket product to the description of the video on Youtube if the corresponding option is enabled in the program settings for CreativeMarket (it is enabled by default).
StockSubmitter will look for a first line with a link (any link) in the description and will insert a line with a CM product page link before it. The line will look like: "CreativeMarket: link".
If there are no links in the description the program will add the link in the end of the description like this:
"Download this and other video clips without watermark here:
link"

If you have ideas on how to improve this video description modification algorithm you can send your suggestions to me via PM / email (mephisto123@gmail.com) / Telegram (Netherspite)

@Roberto

It is planned to add an option to add all the files with the same filename as the main JPEG file into the ZIP archive that the program prepares for vector images when uploading to CreativeMarket.
Right now you can enable adding AI, PNG, PSD, CDR, SVG in CM settings. And EPS+JPEG are included automatically.

@jonbull

Do you send crash reports?

Categories are saved in a custom EXIF field by the program. There are no standard fields for the Categories so they are getting transferred to the agencies during the submission step.

IPTC metadata is being read by the program as well as other metadata standards like EXIF and XMP.
Title: Re: Updates

+ The program will now use Title field for submitting videos to Dissolve by default.

You can choose to use Description instead (like it was before) in the Dissolve settings in the program.

+ QuickMeta requests will be prioritized now.
Thus, even if there are simultaneous uploads/submissions the QuickMeta will have no delays because of full requests queue.

+ Added an option to include all available formats into archive when uploading vectors to CreativeMarket.
All files with the same filename (as the main JPEG file) and different extension will be included.

But the JPEG previews weren't removed or changed at all. I checked the JPEG date to be sure, the last modification date was 2013 and I'm sure the metadata was still there last year. Somehow the metadata was stripped from all JPEGs within certain folders (the oldest videos).

Not blaming StockSubmitter or anything, I'm just wondering how it could have happened.

Ever thought about adding stats to the package? I pay several hundred dollars per year for stats analysis With the level of active support you provide I am sure you could compete. You would have to provide keyword analysis, RPI, RPD, STR, matching up files across sites and the like so no small task, but a possible route for expansion of services, bringing everything under one roof.

@Noedelhap

But if the JPEGs were not modified since 2013 they couldn't be stripped off metadata? May be it is just not displayed for some reason? Can you try different metadata read priorities (top right combo box in the main window)?

@thepatriast

The program doesn't know about sales and downloads and thus cannot sort based on that.
You can already sort alphabetically (and it is the sort mode used by default).

@Justanotherphotographer

We had considered this. Unfortunately, it would require too much time and money investments to make it a viable feature and it is highly unlikely the profits will cover the costs.

Maybe i can get used to this "dark" one. My main problem is that the look of the buttons give me the feeling that they are disabled, grayed-out. Probably i can get over it over time..
It's just strange for me that the "Black" skin is the one what's gone as for me it always seemed that it was the one on a higher quality level, never understood the existence of the others.

I like this new colorful status bar under images. The eye have to get used to it, but it makes much more sense than just one status icon for every image.
Also I like the new function the error messages are not mixed among submission windows but grouped under the errors button. It would be even better without the blinking. Turning red and showing a number is enough alert in my opinion. Some times the same errors are repeating over and over again, and I don't want to open them all the time, as i know exactly what's there. But if i don't open them the blinking is distracting.

I would still very much like to see a function that when the focus is in the thumbnails area pressing letter key jumping to filenames starting with that letter. It would be even better if i could start to write more letters of the filename, just like in a Windows browser window.
I know that there is the working search function now, which I use a lot, but in many occasions this method would be much faster and simpler to find the file I want.

For a long time I see unreasonable % values from time time on the progress bar of uploads. Some cases i'm really sure that the percentages just cannot be true. In some cases it even goes beyond 100% :)

Now I caught a screenshot of an obvious case of error.
One upload had been active to Videoblocks. I started the upload of a new file to all agencies. The Shutterstock upload started with a progress percentage of over 50% immediately. The FTP status window's progress bar shows that the upload is still at its very beginning.

seems it does not work still. waited few days already. I did also tryed to launch alamy and pond5 in incognito mode, to write capcha there, however it still asks for it in stocksubmitter. And you really cant do anything there, i was signed up the captcha with alamy, and 3 seconds later it pops up again, like please login and write captcha. Annoying, please check.

And what is up with updates? it says that there is 1 update ready to be installed, no matter what how many times i launch program, like i launch it, update it > close it and re-open - same thing, it says there is update, but nothing changes. Everything is started up with administration rights, first time this issue

What's the problem exactly with Pond5 for you?

For Alamy, try authenticating twice, then immediately send a report using Service -> Report an issue.

Update issue was resolved yesterday.

I'm facing a funny situation, stock submitter is  not allowing me to upload .mp4 4k videos to Videoblocks. They do accept these videos and I've used LR timelapse to make stuff that has been uploaded and accepted. Any help or suggestions

What is the exact error message do you get?
Also please show a screenshot of the tooltip to the problematic footage.
Just shows the format is incompatible with this site (videoblocks). Doesn't allow me to upload. Uploads fine on all other sites and gets submitted.

No, I mean mouseover the problematic footage and take a screenshot of the tooltip.

These are the tooltips I'm getting. The video just to the side of this one has also been exported by the same program in the same format but it got uploaded and submitted easily

My issue is why is it not uploading to Videoblocks?

The video on the right of this one is exported from the same program. But it uploaded and submitted easily

I've started the program after more than a week of break and I was surprised to see that more than half of my site settings had disappeared. There are much less sites listed now.
Can there be any specific reason for that?

Could happen if something had removed some of the program configuration files.

I cannot submit or upload to Pixta for more than a day.

There is no way to get past authorization.

This Electron window (which is painfully slow btw..) just sits there and never disappears like for exampla after Fotolia login

yeah but it's Pixta fault I simply started to ignore them, they are such a small earner not worth the hassle anyway.

For me it's not the smallest among the agencies I submit to.
Strange thing is that Stoicksubmitter is telling me that some contributors have successfully
 submitted in the last couple of hours.
I just wonder if i'm doing something wrong, but i cannot think of what it could be

Just can't get anything to run. Just seizes up.
Will uninstall and reinstall. If that fails - anybody know of a good alternative?

Almost everytime Stocksubmitter starts up, it says something like 'it's been a long time since you've made a backup of your configuration settings', even though I do a backup every time. The message comes back too often. There doesn't seem to be a way to turn off this warning either.

This extra click at startup annoys me a bit as well

It happens just once a week, not so many times.
It can save you a lot of headache if the program gets terminated incorrectly and the configuration will be reset.

I think it would be enough to remind me less often. Site configurations are something what i change maybe 2 times a year

It's not about site configurations (restoring them is not really a problem usually).
It's about other data (database of uploaded images paths for submitting them, releases database, balance history). Losing all of it will most likely be a disaster.

I see
Can not it be automated?  Like I give the path once, and it always save there after that without any windows coming up

I would recommend to have multiple backups, not just the latest one. In case one of the backups will be corrupted or something nasty like power cut will happen during writing the backup.
Besides, creating a backup takes significant time so if the program will just do it silently upon startup some users may think it hanged.

Post by: Noedelhap on October 10, 2017, 02:55
I have no problem creating a backup every week or so, but I get the popup every single time (i.e. every day) on startup, even after making a backup yesterday.

What about automatically creating a backup (like an autosave, say five backup files, and then repeatedly overwriting the oldest ones)? The program could say 'Creating backup' at the splash window.
Or at least giving users the option 'Don't show this again'? I understand it's important to backup image data (although power cuts and freezes don't happen often). But this popup window is getting annoying like a spam mail or cookie wall.

When I first asked about backups , this is what  I got:

All of my files are stored on a network NAS which is 24/7 on with hybrid RAID + there are 2 local backups to computers on network. Furthermore my NAS is synchronized with backblaze so a cloud backup of FILES THEMSELVES is created. But I click on "no I dont want to backup data" at the startup of the program. Backing up files themselves is I suppose sufficient? If statuses of images by agencies are stored in files themselves then all is good. (video has a seperate file, i know).

Cheers,

I have a small feature suggestion:

Above the sites list there are the boxes to tick all sites at once for uploading or submitting. For the upload column there could be one more tickbox which only engages for upload all the site where Stocksubmitter can handle the submission too
Title: Re: Updates
Post by: Niakris on October 10, 2017, 22:07
@Noedelhap

Are you sure you're creating a backup successfully in response to that backup suggestion dialog?
Because if you do so it definitely shouldn't ask about it for a week.

@nd3000

Statuses are indeed stored in the images themselves.
However, there is other important information that you would want backed up I think. Please read my post above about that.

@Desintegrator

I will consider it for inclusion in the future updates, thanks.

Also there is a bigger issue where some warning window or something would be needed
There is this button labelled "RT QuickMeta". I have no idea what does it do or how to use it, but sometimes i click it accidentally and then all my work in the selected file's metadata gets totally messed up. So much that i have to start from scratch. Is it's very annoying.. sometimes there is a lot of thought in properly keywording a file, then all the work disappears without any warning.

There should be a warning window coming up with that button. Even better an option to hide that button, and make it the default setting. It even took me a few occasions of just wondering what had happened to my metadata until i realized that it's triggered by clicking a wrong button.
