Hi Everyone,

We are in the midst of switching to a new image processing system that works along the same lines as our video and audio processing mechanism.

How this works is:
Via FTP:
1. Upload your files into FTP.
2. Go to the upload page (yes the captcha is a necessary step)
3. Pass the captcha challenge
4. Click FTP Settings / Check FTP Upload Results
5. Click Continue >>>
6. What this does is our system will transfer the files from your FTP folder into a queue.

Via Web form:
1. Upload your files into FTP.
2. Go to the upload page (yes the captcha is a necessary step)
3. Pass the captcha challenge
4. Click Web Form Uploader
5. Select the items that have to be uploaded
6. Check the appropriate check boxes and
7. Click Upload!
8. What this does is our system will transfer the files from your computer into into a queue.

Why is a queue necessary?
We have an increasing number of digital files to process and work with. Due to the popularity of "upload once, send to many" apps out there, these apps are really good at uploading and then processing files concurrently. What happens is that our servers will literally max out on CPU resources and this results in even more angst as your files are corrupted due to failed graceful processing.

Why is captcha necessary?
To allay the auto processing of the apps above. We will work to ensure that the apps will eventually be able to process your files automatically too but we're switching to a new system, so for the time being, do be patient with the system as we work to iron out the bugs.

What's are we working on actively?
Various items:
1. We are currently working to improve the system so that you receive a message on the ESTIMATED time before your files are available for MR attachments/describing/keywording. This is proving to be a challenge as we have to determine the existing queue length and then estimate the time you need for your own files to arrive at a logical estimated timeframe.

2. I do believe that the messaging for the various error detection are a bit vague as well. We are working to make sure that we will give you proper error reports in the future.

3. The system messaging must also be a lot more intuitive because a lot of contributors are so used to processing things in real time, we hope to change this with better messaging to you so that everyone understands that there IS A QUEUE, and you have to send the files in, and come back later to complete the steps.

What don't we recommend?
We advise against refreshing the page continuously as it will generate even more errors. We advise you to be patient, click once and let it take a short while as the system churns through the queue. We too are testing the system so that its robustness and responsiveness is up to par with your expectations as well as ours.

I also note that you might be worried if you missed out certain files due to this problem. We have begun to keep track of your original file names quite some time back. We can give you a CSV dump of all the files you have sent to us and you can identify which files are missing from your portfolio rather easily. Please email
[email protected] if you need your CSV file to conduct the reconciliation exercise.


Thank you for your understanding! Please give us a week to iron things out and get the system back on its feet again. We haven't restricted any uploading or processing.
Alex

I just tried it and cant get past the captcha. It keeps redirecting me to the starting page where I have to choose what kind of media to upload.

Ill check back in a month...

Are the buyers having to jump through all of these hoops?

Because if so they wont be looking for any images with all of the hoops that will be in their way!

Well, I did manage eventually to get to the images are in the queue page (although it kicked me back a step a few times for no apparent reason).

You really should remove the text that says "you will not see this again unless you log out" since it seems to be completely untrue.

Good luck getting a fast, reasonable, reliable, and stable upload system working. With your extra 30% or so I expect nothing less.

It's encouraging to read that got your images to the queue page Tom  :)

I have tried for some days now, with photos that were uploaded using FTP. The files upload OK but all I seem to get when I try to process the uploaded files is: "Uploading...Please Wait...". And I have waited for many hours.

If I connect the FTP, I can see that my files are still there.

Did you try anything different? Or did you just try many times, and suddenly it worked?

My files are moved to pending now. I had been logged out, probably by the 123RF system, and when I logged back in, they were in the pending queue.

Figured I would give it a try again! :( :( :( :( :( :(

    Filename    123RF Filename    File Type      Uploaded      Status    Action
1)   064_1.jpg      Stock Photo      Time left: 5 mins    
2)   019_1.jpg      Stock Photo      Time left: 5 mins    
3)   033_1.jpg      Stock Photo      Time left: 5 mins    
4)   045_1.jpg      Stock Photo      Time left: 5 mins

Been spinning and working 5 minutes for well over 15-20 plus minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

This spinning is just a waste of time and my internet service which is DATA limited so it just burns up DATA doing nothing that I pay for each month and 123's easy upload process was thrown out the window for what may even be more piss poor then what they have over on BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got hundreds to upload and can't do a dam thing like this so it looks like time to wait till the cows come home and maybe then it will be fixed or maybe we are going to have to wait till hail freezes over???????????????????

Wow. After 2 weeks someone posts some useful information. Just tried it in IE and it is working. Also didn't ask for captcha since I was already logged in.

Thanks, Yuliang

I use Firefox and it works to the point of the waiting forever for the files to go from processing to completed!

The old way once queued you checked the box and saved all done but this way is a joke.

I have tried with Firefox.

The beginning of the upload process seems to work, but after a while I get this:




Edit: despite the "Failed to complete processing" message the file is in the pending folder now
