It's unacceptable that we need to go trough files 1 by 1 and submit them this way. I don't care about the "advanced" feature like "populate fields", it's unacceptable and laughable. It absolutely sucks.

I'm thinking about to stop uploading to Dreamstime, since the earnings are not so rewarding anyway. And even if they are, making the submission process faster and easier is just a normal thing to do and it's absolutely a must.

I agree with you. They need to update their submission section.

However, I open the images in separate tabs and use shortcut keys to navigate through windows to speed up the process.
Though this is also tedious but still a better option than none.

True, I have DT submission anxiety and always leave the process for "later".
On the bright side they review images in only a few hours.

Exactly. ALWAYS my last submissions.

I dropped DT becase it's insane that they have such an old way to submit. There is no batch edit, and you have to select those categories, different titles/descriptions, and so on.

DT sales are so tiny (for me) that it hardly matters...

However, I started using StockSubmitter (and am now using the beta version of the web version of it) last October.  I now just enter once, and SS takes care of all the agencies, including DT.  Thus, DT now quite literally takes me zero time to submit, so I went ahead and did it.

By adding roughly 1000 new images to DT, I now get as many as one new sale per week!  (yes, I make about $1/mo with those extra 1000 images -- like I said, so tiny it barely matters...)
