When the iStock website was still active and accepting submissions from contributors, I was sending both commercial and editorial images. However, when they made the move to the weird ESP site, I could find no way of marking my images as editorial. I tried different browsers but could not find the editorial option. So eventually, I gave up and only submitted commercial images to ESP. However, I do shoot a lot of editorial so I'm probably missing out on some potential income. Despite that, I still made a payout some time back (my first and only with Getty.)

Ive heard of something called Deep Meta but don't know much about it. Does it work similar to Stocksubmitter? That might be a way that I can submit editorial images again.

Try a look at the video intro to see if it would work with your workflow.

Thanks for the link. That looks like a good system and straight forward too.

Out of curiosity, what does 'signature plus' mean? At one point, the narrator of the video selects the country that the photo was taken in and says that this can be nominated for 'signature plus.'

Also, whereabouts can I download this software legitimately? In other words - from a safe source.

Signature plus is exclusive non-editorial content which is deemed to be of a higher quality (usually expensive to shoot, models, sets etc, but it could be just a one-off stunning image) and can be mirrored onto Getty. (Exclusive editorial content is mirrored onto Getty and isn't eligible for plussing.) However, reading in various forums shows that selection is remarkably inconsistent.

Why wouldn't you download it from the actual DeepMeta site?

To be honest, I wouldn't know where the DeepMeta site is. I could do a search for it but chances are, I might come across a copycat site and end downloading malware or something else nasty.

Got a link to the official site?

Yes, the link posted by JetCityImage is the official one.

With the move to ESP, editorials now need to be upload together in a batch that's specific to "Editorial images". You cannot mix Creative and Editorial in one batch.

In DeepMeta when you create a batch, select "Editorial Image":



The latest version of DeepMeta also adds a very useful feature, called "Multi-Edit", allowing you to edit multiple files at the same time, with support for Undo/Redo.

Its excellent software...its a sad commentary on IS that a third party needed to create such a thing but I'm very grateful they did.

Very good narration by the way!

Google brings up all sorts of results - official sites and copycat sites and pretty much everything else.
