I get the following useless message each time I try to submit the same image:

You must enter at least 5 single keywords or phrases separated by commas. Multiple words separated by spaces are treated as a phrase. Please ensure that your submission follows the guidelines provided by iStockphoto.

I entered 35 keywords and chose their meanings, but each time I submit I end up with the same error again.
Sometimes my title turns yellow, but it doesn't say anything about any title issue.

Just to clarify
-all 3 categories are chosen
-my title is 85 characters / 4 short sentences.
-quite long description (~1500 characters) but I never had issues with long descriptions before
-image type is chosen
-disambiguation checkboxes are chosen

Anyone any idea what is happening?
As if the torture of their submission process is not enough already.

It seems to be influenced by the disambiguation checkboxes. As soon as I change any of the detailed ones (when you click the plus symbol), I can't submit any more.

Try using DeepMeta to upload and manage your files. It's easier.

I just uploaded one via the site (as usual) and it went through first time.
Maybe just a temporary blip?

DeepMeta seems like a good idea, but it's actually a terrible option for me since I use different system to upload my images. It also requires Windows which I don't use.

I think I have to analyze what is happening to the checkboxes in my browser. By now I think this may be some plugin issue.

There is a Mac version of Deepmeta, There is something about Linux in the faq on the Deepmeta site.

If you are using other third party software to upload to iStock, then that may well be your problem.

Problem solved.
I had a bug in one of my installed chrome plugins. It removed Javascript from the checkboxes. All fixed now.

Same as last time, the problem was einstein. Maybe you should change your name to muppet?
