Sorry, I forgot to mention that we were following Leaf's specifications  for the new submission process.
Really appreciated...


Thanks Elena, I am going to upload some images pronto :)  It looks really good and is very little effort to get images onto the site. 

Do you have any input on how to price images ?

one more question.

Is it possible to upload to feature pics with a regular ftp program, or do i have to use the web browser one? 
The web browser format seems to work fine (however only with Internet Explorer, Firefox had an error) but it makes browsing the net extremely slow while images are uploading.  Using an ftp program, the browser is still able to run at a decent speed.

Regarding prices:
We have sold images from 10 cents up to $50, so it is very hard to say the criteria visitors are using when decide to buy an image.
We have a page with our statistic
http://www.featurepics.com/Stat/Stat.aspx,
and it will be much more useful when we have serious traffic and stable sales.
$1-$5 range definitely works; $5-$15 works for artistic images.
Again, we are learning with you.
Thank you!
PS! I love "Spell Check" button on "Post reply" screen...:)

Yes leaf you can use a regular ftp program. Instead of giving everyone a unique ftp account they give everyone a unique folder. Just right click on the "Click here to open a FTP window" and copy the shortcut. That will give you your FTP folder. I have used WS FTP Pro from the beginning without any problems. Hope that helps.

Firefox/Filezilla (Netscape family) and our Microsoft environment are in disagreement somewhere :).
We should find what is going on...
(ftp is the simplest protocol I had deal with, but I couldn't understand Filezilla's commands - OK, it is another story)

FTP clients - may be we should make a list of recommended programs. We will be back to this subject.

Well I would say I was in the wrong place last week.  I haven't been posting lately because while installing a laminate floor in my home about 10 days ago I cut about 1.5 cm off my middle finger with a table saw.  Ouch.  :o  So typing has become quite difficult, but I am glad I could help.

Sticker - but did it make a good stock photo???

Elana - on the my Earnings page, how about the photo reference number linking to the photo.  I have no idea what photo number 67865 is (I made up the number but you get the pint).  NO rus but just something for the techies to think about when they think everything is sorted.

Oops. I am sorry to hear about the accident....
Hope you feel much better now. Elena

CJ, please check your earnings page. All references should be there. Let me know if this solution works for you.
Still feel very bad about Stricker77s....

is your ftp program still working strikker?  I am trying to use filezilla and it connects fine, but when i try and upload images I get an error. :S

allright I guess I answered my own question.

I tried using the filezilla and connected but couldn't upload without errors
i tried using an old version of ws_ftp (a free one) but it didn't work
and now i downloaded a trial version of the new ws_ftp and it seems to be working.

allright, nothing like have a conversation with myself :)  I have a question for strikker though,

which version of ws_ftp do you use?  and did you have to purchase it or is there some free version that they offer.  I couldn't find anything that had more than a 30 trial.

ok, a question for Elena now.

What do you want us to do if we have more than one model release for an image?

I use the WS_FTP_Pro version.  I haven't tried anything else but someone else had the same problem and I think they got it working.  You could possible ask them what they use.  It is on FeaturePics forum
http://www.talkmicro.com/viewtopic.php?t=191&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0&sid=e0d346e8f5a6a249f0e253c7b94c844a

I haven't used it for a few weeks but I plan on using it tonight.  I have some great new pictures of some wacko who cut off part of his middle finger. :)  It works with IE so I can't imagine it not working with any generic FTP software.  Very strange.  I used the freeware AceFTP before I switched to WS_FTP_Pro, it was an excellant program for being free.  The only reason I switched was the need to be able to scheduled FTP uploads.

If I haven't uninstalled it already maybe I'll try it to, and give a report.

Hope that helps,

Mark

well i recieved my first sale on feature pics today :) (with around 250 images online)

still debating about if it is worth my time there, but they have made the upload process very quick, and listen to our feedback, which makes me want to see the site grow.

I have about 40 photos up and I get a lot of views - One has 15 or so and its been up for a week only...which for me is pretty good - but no downloads.  Does this seem to be the same for anyone else?

Ichiro

I think you are getting a little impatient.  ;) , but don't we all.  With about 200 images I was getting about 1 sale a week at $4 last month.  This month I only got two sales.  So with 40 images you should expect less than 1 sale a month at FP.  But it also depends heavily upon how much you priced them and how sellable your images are.  I just don't want you to get discouraged.  Keep taking pictures and uploading them.  Set a goal to upload 10 20 or 30 images a week.  What ever works for you and concentrate on building your portfolio.  Once you have 200 - 400 images then worry about which site will bring in the maximum amount and will work for you.  By looking at April's sales, upload to the top 5 or so.  Then go from there. 

Good luck and keep taking pictures,

Mark

Hey guys. I was thinking of joining FeaturePics.com .. Anyone making good sales there ?

it's pretty slow there i think.  Good comissions, but perhaps they don't have much left for advertising....
