Can anyone upload? FTP doesn't work and I don't see where I can upload on the site itself....

Uhm good to know payouts are working now. That's the only thing that got me worried since at the end of the month I need that money to pay for my new flat.

On the contrary to everyone else here, last week was my best ever week at fotolia and this week is no different so far, hope it keeps that way or better.

An important note for those that seem confused by the sizes, the small size at fotolia IS NOT BLOG SIZE, is WEB SIZE! 800 x 600 can almost cover your screen.

Last week was also my best week ever and this week is going well also.  ;D

as FT have pointed out, they sold '10,000 pictures' on the day V2 went live.....
Companies rushing to use their credits while they still can, perhaps?  They didn't say "purchased new credits", did they?   Would be more interesting to know how many new credits packages were sold.

I still can't find any upload button anywhere on the site.
I'm sure they've lost a LOT of business with this whole mess.

A glitch that favors a top contributor, who'd have thought ::)

Not just the top contributors.  I've sold 20 so far today with a portfolio of less than 500.

My sales are up on FT as well, but only to the $200+/month level.

Is anyone else having problems getting the site to load today?  Or is just me?

I've sold 0 so far today with a portfolio of less than 500. In fact, I've only had one sale for the week. But I'm still new, so maybe a lot of people don't know I exist. And yeah, the site isn't loading for me either.

I've been selling for about a year now.  I nearly gave up uploading as the sales were so slow at the beginning but the last few months have really taken off.  Even now new images seem to take a while to get going.

Fotolia's site is working again. Maybe they fixed something?

Oh, and can I see a link to your Fotolia portfolio fotografer? I'm curious to see what your clients are buying. Thanks.

Down here in Australia FT was slower yesterday than V1.

Today (Tuesday morning) we have no access at all.

Still running very slow.

Just wish it would be sorted, it's getting a bit tiring.

The blog link at the top of the page on the US site links to blog.fotolia.loc/us

loc?  How can such a mistake be possible?

Things are improving, I guess.

Payment requested yesterday was already credited to MB.

Uploads have been resumed and categories are easier to pick.  However there is no description anymore, and the title field in being filled with the description.  Wrong IPTC fields?

Regards,
Adelaide

The site crashed three times today while trying to upload, first tried 10, then 5, then one at a time.  Probably clogged with all new uploads.

I'd rather remain anonymous here as I then feel I can say what I like about any site but my portfolio is almost 100%  people shots(not business).

I finally got a payment yesterday, and they made a mess off it. The payment has been deducted off my earnings twice. I am waiting to see if it hits Paypal twice before I complain to support. In the meantime, my earning stand at MINUS $58.70!
The credits I earned between the 11th and the 13th June still have not been approved.

How many have noticed that previously accepted files now have keywords missing, I remember reading about keywords somewhere but I thought it was a problem of newly submitted images. I have 3,500 files at FT, am I expected to fill in the blanks? I have only checked less than 10 but half had blanks

It makes D/A at iStock seem like a walk in the park.

The only bright side with thoses with small portfolios it would be chance to correct keywording mistakes

Not only missing keywords but a lot of pics already keyworded are not showing up in search.

Yes, the whole keywords/search thing is yet another disaster.

I am amazed that anyone would actually consider uploading anything to FT given that nothing seems to actaully work, and even the upload process apparently has the IPTC fields mixed up or missing.  I certainly won't be sending them anything until such time as I am sure the thing works properly and that FT have survived this awful mess.

Yup, they screwed mine up too. I use a different email address for paypal than normal email, but when you put in the request, it asks for your paypal email. I put that in, and they sent it to the wrong place.

Rather than give them any opportunity to make it worse, I just opened a paypal account under the new address. It will take a few days to make it work, but better than giving them a second crack at it.

I agree with not uploading, I am over a 100 images behind now, and not sure they will ever  get them. It's going to take some time for them to gain any credibility.

just as a note: in case you didn't know.  You can have multiple email addresses with each paypal account.. so you wouldn't have to open a new account if you didn't want to.

Your a star Leaf,

No sooner had I added the new email address to my paypal that I looked at my email to see that Fotolia had sent payment to my contact email address, not my paypal address.

payment all sorted now and received.  Very quick - only about 2 days.
