Thought I'd put a few up there since they are still doing better than istock with nothing new for a couple of years. FTP wouldn't work at all and the web based uploader crapped out if I tried to upload more than one pic.

I still upload to them.  Slow sales but 50% royalties and usually fast reviews.  They're nowhere near iS, but have picked up a little the past few months.  The multiple-image uploader usually doesn't work well with more than 2 or 3 at a time.  I use ftp - no problems that I can remember (it's been a few weeks since I uploaded anything there).  I would try ftp again - maybe something wasn't set right.

Do you use the default directory they list under My FTP? I don't have my old config for ftp. If I try to upload without the directory, I get access denied. If I try to connect with it, I get, can't access that directory.

A week later and the only response from support is there is a test image in my new files area. Been there for several days. Unless they think that 'proved' it worked, I don't know the purpose. Tried to upload 2 images yesterday via html and it errored out, so I guess I'll continue to not upload anything to them.

Hello Darryl!
I answered you 01 Feb, 03 Feb, left you a message in your correspondence box, tryid to call you (the phone number is wrong).
Today I resent my messages to your 2 email accounts. Please check out your junk box.
I was answering you to your msn account (today - to msn and gmail).
I uploaded a test image into your account 01 Feb without problems.
You can leave me your correct phone number in your correspondence box - I will call you.
Thank you, Elena, FeaturePics.com

thank you elena, this has been handled, as I said in two of my emails today. I did not get any emails until today and then they all showed up in both accounts. I get a great deal of mail daily in both, so I don't think the problem was on my end. I keep my spam folder cleaned out.  The # actually isn't wrong, I had just traded phones with my wife who you spoke with and got my # where you left a vm.

As stated in one of my emails, I only have 2 msgs in my correspondence box, the original welcome msg from way back and a tax msg re 2012. It shows 1 unread msg, but I don't see any way to see it or delete the current msgs. My only option is reply.

Thanks again for recreating my ftp folder which is how the problem got resolved.

     Haven't  uploaded  lately.  No  view  -  no  sales.  Port will  stay  -  can  always  hope  things  will  get  better.

Same here: hardly any sales and silly rejections reasons. Not worth spending time there.

« Reply #12 on: September 12, 2013, 09:25 »
I still submit there. Uploads are easy, rejections very rare and I want to support a site that pays 50% royalties. Downloads are slow, but certainly on par with the other low sites.  I will continue as long as uploading is easy and hope it picks up.

« Reply #13 on: September 12, 2013, 10:55 »
Same for me. Upload is easy and fast. Few rejections, and about one sale per month. I continue uploading there.

Featurepics= RIP!...YEAH I KNOW, Elena is great, easy uploading, fast reviews, minimum to none rejections, fair commission, but getting a sale there even though I have close to 1,000 pics on the site, is like pulling teeth. I stop uploading a couple of months ago and won't pull my complete portfolio just because I've been with them for such a long time, not because is worth uploading anything there if you want to sale your photos. What a shame!!!

They were about 50% of what I made on 123RF last month - unfortunately more to poor sales on 123 than great sales on FP, still they are ticking along slowly for me.

I upload a few images once or twice a year.  They usually sell something each month and I get the occasional payout.  Still worth it for me.

« Reply #17 on: September 14, 2013, 07:58 »
reaching payout every 5-6 months with ~5000 portfolio

     Made  a  sale  in  Aug  that  i  found  when  i  check  the  site.  Almost  gave  up  hope.  I  uploaed  a  couple  more  with  more  to  add  later.
