Hi all,

sorry, forgot to describe what the PixelUploader does and what it doesn't do.

What it does:
1. The PixelUploader is a desktop application available for macOS and windows.
2. The software is provided "as is".
3. Basic functionality:
    3.1. Attributing JPEG-files: modify IPTC, EXIF data and save into a file;
    3.2. Supporting of batch editing and upload;
    3.3. Supporting video files;
    3.4. Export to CSV files in following formats (useful for video files):
            Shutterstock, GettyImages, Pond5, Videoblocks, 123RF, Depositphotos...
   
3.5. Uploading photo/video files to ftp servers (stocks or any ftp server);
3.6. Security safe of credentials;
3.7. Simultaneous transfers of files;
4. Сonfidentiality: merely checking update;

What it will do:
1. Add login into the application;
2. Add support vector;

What it doesn't do:
1. The app doesn't have any local or remote storage, it's business of user how the content is organized.
   The goal of the app is just attributing and uploading of graphical content for microstocks;

How do you guys handle Categories for every image/video uploaded?

Or you just upload and then go to that agency and submit the media from each site?
Title: Re: PixelUploader
Post by: pixeluploader on April 12, 2017, 11:58
yes, the answer is in the second question;
the files are filled with metadata, saved (for video it's export to CSV) and then uploaded by ftp, user himself adds the ftp settings for each stock, where he has portfolio.

There are two things I really love this program for.  One is adding metadata. It is hard to find programs for Mac (I don't like GraphicConverter or Lightroom for metadata) where you can add metadata.  PixelUploader makes it so easy to add and save metadata. Such a simple, simple, simple process.  And simple to me is key.

Secondly, I use it to send video to Shutterstock.  Again very simple to figure out how to use. 

I'm going to test uploading pictures to all my agencies and will give feedback on this later. The only program so far that I've liked to upload to multiple agencies is Stockuploader. Unfortunately, this isn't being updated by Igor now.  I think Pixeluploader will be a great replacement going forward.

Dear friend,
thanks for great software!
I use it for video attribution and one serious drawback is that now impossible to reload csv to continue work in case of interruption.
Please add drag-n-drop support for csv or for special format sidecar file (which is created along with csv on export) to reload keywords and titles for active videos/images.
Also would be nice feature to see SAVE button for backup sidecar file with entered attribution.
Please consider feature to see all files in compact list with small icons (for review)

regards and best wishes
Andrew

Hello,
is it possible add support for footages, ability to read keywords, title and desctription writed to footage by Adobe Bridge?
Title: Re: PixelUploader
Post by: pixeluploader on February 20, 2019, 17:10
Yes, now it is possible to import csv file but only in the pond5 format, for this you need to use the hot key: command + I (ctrl + I)
about "small icons (for review)" and import from "Adobe Bridge" of course we will try to add it.

all the best
