Hm , ftp uploads multiple files at a time but i somehow doubt that's your question  ;D ?

If u were thinking batch submitting , i don't think it can be done on site (only one at a time)  but stock submitter may help u with that so u may want to check on microstock services part of the forum.

Sorry if i misunderstood your question...

ftp would work, I will check out microstocksubmitter. I meant to....thanks. I was hoping they had an upload system like SS, which is really easy and allows batch uploads

I always preferred ftp over on site uploads , in the beginning I ran into many bugs so i was mainly using ftp for most sites...

Stocksubmitter does categories and can not only upload but submit files also and it saves you a lot of clicking, but submitting option is not free.

If u have lots of uploading to do u may want to consider to try it , for me the price matches my needs and it help me much especially on sites that dont have batch submitting but u have to go one by one.

If you go to My Files and then Indexing you can add model releases, catagories etc in batches.

try this from their site: u can see your details in : http://www.fotolia.com/Member/FtpUploadContent

URL   ftp://submit.fotolia.com
ID (login) *   *****  ( its a 5 digit number in my case maybe its 6 digit now im not sure)
Password**   Your login followed by your password (ie: if your login is "login" and your password is "password", your ftp password will be "loginpassword")
* Your FTP connection ID (login) is not your Fotolia login name.

Hope it helps

can you further explain the password part...I have my 6 digit number, but nothing I input for password works. I don't find the instruction clear or I'm misreading it

As password for the FTP account you have to use both your login name and password for the regular website login, written together as one word.

So if you log into the FT website with username SNP and password let-me-in, your password for your FTP account is SNPlet-me-in

That should work.

They do have batch upload, choose upload multiple files and select all images you want to upload

yeah, that password bit of theirs is unnecessarily tricky.

you can batch edit using the "indexing" feature.
however there's no opt out on the categories, not that I've found.
