The search for the buyers improved... but the contributor part got really confusing.

No, but they now have the long awaited category "risotto"...

I think this actually is a nice improvement for contributors, people just didn't take / have the time to discover how it works. You can batch edit dozens of files now, changing their description with a single click like on SS, so defaulting your X-price option or categories to previous file's setting is meaningless now. This makes submitting a lot faster.

Again: it now basically works like SS batch submission forms, editing, saving adn submitting multiple files at once.

Imho the whole interface is lot better, less clicks needed, almost everything on a single page, you just need rto figure it out an get used to it.

On the other hand I don't see much improvement in sales coming from the adobe deal. I have slowly increasing sales from my files "maturing" but nothing else really.

Their ftp was frequently down so I always chose the screen uploader. Now that is restricted to max 30MB total/time....less than 3 full-res jpgs. No object category and I get that incomplete indexing thing which FT didn't bother to explain that only 30 keywords accepted and 64 characters in title.

Too bad. Won't bother there any more.

We only need to assign one category. That's a good thing.  8)

yep, with millions of files, categories are pretty much useless

Can you tell me how I can see the last images download with thumbnail as it was before and the most downloaded images ? with sales stats under the image. That was much better and easier to view than now. I don't like the new layout at all.

I haven't uploaded since the changes.  Does FTP still work the same way?  With their weird password system?  Or have they changed that?  I assume it still reads the iptc data?

I haven't uploaded much lately either, and it's great I can select multiple files, but at 30MB total size that equals only 3 per upload, unless I switch to FTP, which often fails (due to my dodgy connection I assume). now instead of the % indicator at the bottom of the window I get to watch the green swirly Fotolia logo instead.  there was something odd with the indexing: changing keywords in one didn't marry up and instead changed the order in the other two.

In my account there "no" for free section, but submission stops and message tells that i have "yes" for free section and in case of rejection image will be given away for free. I deleted files. BTW FTP worked increadible fast

XS price 1-1   relates to price for smallest DL size which is fixed
and
X price 30 - 100
is for  an EL - or something???????

Your thinking is right.

Why is the web interface limited to 10 files at a time now?  Do they not want uploads?
