Hi guys!
just wondering, of the 5 agencies to which i currently upload (SS, P5, SB, AS are the other 4), Dreamstime is by far the one that takes longer between workflow stages. What i mean is that it takes as many as 7 days for me to be able to tag and complete files on the site after i uploaded them through ftp... is it like that with everybody or am i doing something wrong?

also, since they approve the clips until i actually see them online on my portfolio, another many great number of days goes by.. thanks!

For me, Dreamstime is one of the easiest to upload.  Probably the only reason why I stay with them as they are one of my lower earners.  The fact that they give you 80 keyword minimum rather than 50 means less editing and less deciding which of two keywords to need to discard.  Also, DT does not use duplicate words.  I dont have to include "redwood," "tree" and "redwood tree."

I don't go through their ftp, I just upload through the website with photos that have been pre-populated with keywords in their meta data.

There's a bit of delay for videos to show up on DT after upload, but it definitely shouldn't take more than 24h, it's usually a couple of hours for very large files.

Ditto that.

They were having some website issues this month... Maybe is related?
