Is anyone else using picWorkflow.com? I've been using it for about a month now, and like it so far. It doesn't seem to be a huge improvement over what iSyndica was offering, but I'm just glad to have a bulk syndication option again.

I'm am 99.99% a vector-only artist, and submitting vectors has been pretty easy so far. I like how submitting vectors is simple, and that you CAN submit vectors.  The other syndication tools I looked at didn't support vectors.  It is 1 per syndication/upload (same as iSyndica was). There are no startup costs, so it is very affordable. When I signed up, there was a promo to get a few free credits, but I'm not sure if they're still offering that.

Here's what I like and don't like so far. I like how easy it is to add microstock sites to syndicate to. It is also fairly easy to add metadata and keywords. It took a bit to figure out their process, but once I got the hang of it, it was easy. I don't really like that they don't have stats yet, but it looks like they're working hard on that. I don't like how picWorkflow makes you pay extra to store files there for an extended period of time. Currently, files will "expire" soon after you add them to your picWorkflow account, unless you pay a small fee to keep them there. I think it is "fair" that they make you pay for this, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.  :D

Overall, it is definitely comparable to what iSyndica had going, and hopefully they will keep adding features and improving. Their customer support has been much better than iSyndica, and that fact alone is a great indicator that they will continue to be successful and provide great value to us microstockers.

What are the things you like about picWorkflow? What are some tips you have to get the most out of their product?
