EDIT: Looks like this is an Shutterstock issue. Sorry for the confusion

Just started using this. It seems great.
Although I noticed on one batch of images it said they were uploaded but 1 images was missing in Shutterstock.
Will this happen often? I will have to go through and check which image is missing.

This happens sometimes due to Shutterstock ingestion system issues. Don't worry though, the system is watching such files and will re-upload them automatically if they do not appear at the website within a week.
If you want to re-upload earlier, you can select the file, assign 'ready' status for Shutterstock to it and re-upload it manually.

From FAQ :

How do I specify the batch name for iStock and Dissolve in M+?

I thought iStock was off limits ??  No longer allowed !?

Getty blocked our API keys to access their API.
If you happen to have working API keys you can specify them in settings and upload to ESP with SS/M+.
We cannot provide them nor do we encourage using this feature in any way.

I have been testing this recently. I have noticed that Pond5 continually misses some of my uploads. Uploaded 17 and 10 are available. etc
If i reupload the files pond5 tells me those file names have already been uploaded.
Anyone else with this issue?

Write to the author.  He is incredibly involved and responsive.

That's a classic Pond5 bug, their processing is slow and unstable in general.
If the system notices that an uploaded file didn't appear at the agency website within a week - it'll automatically re-upload it given you didn't remove it from M+.
So don't worry and let the system take care of your files :)

Hi, thanks for adding me to the beta users group. I've added the following agencies, Shutterstock, Dreamstime and Adobe. Upload 10 photos to each of the agencies all with titles, descriptions keywords and categories. The following is what happened when I checked each agency site.

Shutterstock - no keywords, no title, no categories
Dreamstime - no photos uploaded at.. this may be a known issue
Adobe - no titles, not all keywords included (example one photo had 30 keywords, but only 23 show up on the adobe site), but some keywords appeared that were not my keywords

Love the concept, the design and the friendly ease of use, and totally understand we are in beta

Probably you've checked it too quickly.
Uploaded files will always lack metadata if the agency doesn't fill the fields automatically. It's the same as if you would upload files manually.
After uploading the files the system will check the agencies websites every 15 minutes or so to see if the files have appeared.
Once it finds the files there it will 'submit' them, filling all the fields and sending them for review.
So all you need to do is just to wait for the submission to happen (should have happened by now).

And of course some agencies are slow with processing the uploaded files (like DT) so if the files did not appear yet it means the website is still processing them and the system will submit them once they appear at the website.

Hi, 24 hours later still no images on Dreamstime that I uploaded.

Bug - when typing in the title or description field and want to go back and add a word in what you have already typed, you can only type one character at a time, the cursor jumps to the end of the text after each character you type. Hope this makes sense.

Is there better performance with a certain browser?

1. The system will automatically re-upload files if they didn't appear on the agency website within a week. So just let it be :)
Alternatively, you can change their status to Ready for Dreamstime and re-upload manually.

2. It is a known Safari bug. We thought we've fixed it but it seems it still happens... Will think what we can do about it. It's kind of a 'blind debug' since modern versions of Safari don't work on any OS that can be installed on a regular PC.

Thanks, Niakris, shifted to using Chrome and that text/title issue goes away.

One thing I've noticed is that the drop down for categories for DT doesn't seem to stay in alphabetical order.
Also entering my login details for Pond5 and the site is not saving the login info.

DT: Will fix that, thanks for letting us know!
Pond5: Did you fill the FTP password field?

What kind of files do you take? Only photos? Or also videos?

Can we also download our own files back down from the cloud? So would it also be an online backup?

It looks really interesting and might save me time or allow me to add more agencies.

Hi,

I purchased a Stock Submitter subscription. It is no longer available.

I am also unable to report the problem through your software. It just gives an error.

You should add your contact information to your website! There is no way of contacting you!

Please fix.

They had a major database crash today. They are aware of it, and are in the process of fixing now.

Is it possible to arrange the file tree in alphabetical order? I can see this becoming an issue if I create lots of folders. Thanks
