Hmm... Do not see any secure login yet... As for other issues - I really like John's reaction time :) Comparable only with Zym's one :)

I do not see what are you talking about.

On unsecure top page you have:

<form id="loginform" name="login" method="POST" action="http://www.cutcaster.com/login">

To be able to see https you have to be a member

Jack, this is really strange statement. I am a member, and I want to log in securely. How can I do it?

I've looked at how other sites do it and no sites have a secure login.  Check out SS or SV for example.  Not throwing them under the bus ;-)  You log in on a http url.

What I think you could mean and something I will change tonight is the registering for an account on a HTTPS page.  is that what you are talking about?  The register process?  Most sites don't do this but if you think this will protect everyone better, I have no problem doing it.  Its a minor change.

John, i believe shutterstock is indeed using ssl (https) if you look at their code, you'll see that the "action" referral on the login button does point to https:


<form method="post" action="https://submit.shutterstock.com/login.mhtml">

tho after that, all urls seem to be http

This is common misconception - site owners think that redirecting login to https is safe (SS,FL, etc.). In reality it is on the same level of safety as not having ssl at all.
To be safe the place that _takes_ password has to be also secure. For now only Zymmetrical got it right.

UncleGene, i've always wondered about that but never taken the time to learn... seems to me that the http page passing data to the https page is still sending it unsecured to secured, but since the start is unsecured, then the data passed to the secure page isn't secure until it gets there and therefore isn't very secure... am i right?

Not exactly. And sending request to https is secure even if it is sent from non-secure page. The problem is that unsecure page can be spoofed itself, you as user are not going to check where the form sends your data every time before you submit :)
Granted, this hack is not trivial (requires a router takeover) and nobody will do it for #15 site, but if John is planning to go eventually on top - it make sense to be prepared :)

Great to see the way John gets things done.  I hope he is as good at getting buyers to cutcaster.  My portfolio will be on there when the FTP is sorted out.

I've just noticed that FTP is now working. An unusual folder system but it works!

Is this site already working? What about sales here?

Cutcaster upgraded their upload system. It makes the upload much more streamlined. It also added lists for pending and rejected photos. FTP works fine too. If a file has IPTC data it skips the description step and you can go right to the submit step. Here you can still edit the information individually or in bulk. I think the Cutcaster team did a very nice job.

I think they are moving to a new server, maybe it is temporary. Contact John or their support. John is usually quick with the fix or answer.

They just put in community voting to compete with MP.  And your photos were voted off the island.   8)

Has anyone else had images vanish from their cutcaster studio?

I uploaded a handful several weeks back before they added their new upload system. they were approved and listed there, now my 'studio' is empty. they are not listed in the rejected images either. Apart from my profile details and avatar there is no sign that I ever uploaded anything!?

They are migrating data to new servers. Check you stuff on Friday. I have a number of images missing as well, but I am told they shoukd reappear when the server work is done by week's end.
