I downloaded the update yesterday but can't see how I get it to install. Have sent an email to your website.

Suggestion - can updates be constructed so that when you download the new version it just auto updates?

Hi
I have answered you in the support forum. No need to "install" it. Just unzip and open xpiks-qt.exe

Yes, there will be auto-update implemented in future versions.

Latest version doesn't search on editorial images. Is there a bug? or on purpose?

Hi

Can you confirm that at the same time old version was able to provide you with results and new version is not capable of doing so? If yes, can you send me the logs please and provide with the request itself so I can repro it?

Hi, really appreciate your work on software.
I have question about 123RF, just registered there with 3 photos accepted. Later I put some bunch of photos trough Xpiks and uploaded to Alamy, Fotolia and 123RF. Alamy and Fotolia got the photos just right over ftp, while photos sent to 123RF (connection test and everything else was green and OK) uploaded but were nowhere to be found on 123RF... Do you know what could have caused this?

Hello,

I don't even know if it is possible but are you planning to add keywording option for video?

Any future version that could work with video too? We like the combination of keywording from different sites.

If future version will include video import (even if only screengrabs are in thumbnails), it would be great to export metadata in .csv form.

Well, I can't even get the program to open. As soon as click on it, I get a message that "xpiks-qt has stopped working".

This still happens even when I've disabled my Avast shields. :/

Hi,
I've been using the software for a bit and it is really good! Would you be able to add capability of opening PNG files and adding metadata? Some agencies and most PODs accept PNG files as well.
Happy new year to all :)

First time ever i see a warning now. My computer is blocking xpiks. What`s wrong with xpiks?

"The computer was protected by Windows

Hi. Xpiks is same as before (open-source, safe). The correct question is what's wrong with your Windows ;)

It would be great to have it connect to Lightroom (as plugin?)

OK. Have downloaded the update. But see no exe file to click. :( Please advise.

PS Please can you do an auto install thing in future?

Hello. What do you mean "no exe file to click"? What exactly have you downloaded? For the Windows you should extract the archive somewhere and inside you can find xpiks-qt.exe. Double-click it and you're done.
Automatic updates have just been implemented in 1.4 Next update will be executed automatically.

ok!  It says xpiks-qt but there was no exe designation which confused me - doh! However, have clicked that and it has gone ok.
Thanks for doing auto update for future!
:)

Please check your Windows settings for showing Known file's extensions.
Cheers

Are you planning to automate the submission process (categories, pricing selection, and all the agencies specific metadata)?
That's the main reason I'm sticking to Stocksubmitter, but your user interface is definitely cleaner and better ;)

Yep, this is planned though I can't give you any estimates right now because there're some outstanding tasks (video support) not yet finished.

There's a new bugfix release of Xpiks available - 1.4.1. This release focuses on fixing bugs related to the new UI. Also Windows users unfortunately will be able to enjoy automatic update experience only starting with this version due to the bug in 1.4 release. Please update via website! Enjoy!

I have been using xpiks and it has really been helping on my workflow. Thanks for that.

I am glad to hear you are working on video submission. Could you also make it possible to see editorial images when searching images for keywording?

thank you! I've been using this for a few days now and it runs absolutely fine on an old macbook. the interface is really well designed.

Not really - right now microstocks don't allow searching for editorial photos separately from all photos. You can try adding "editorial" when searching in keywords suggestion.

With the newest 32 bit version of Xpiks, when I open the Suggest window to search for keywords, I receive an 'SSL connect error' when I try to use iStock or Shutterstock's search functions. Oddly, it works fine if I select Fotolia. The error doesn't occur in the previous version I was using 1.3.3.
