Lately I am  experiencing a strange problem while uploading to IS. I was wondering if it was just me?
Some files take ages to upload and sometime they   don't even seem to be  uploaded at all. And then they suddenly appear among my unfinished files in edit page of IS? it drives me mad as it make the slow  uploading process even slower >:(

ETA: it's nothing to do with file size or my internet connection speed.But it might be because IS's servers might be busy don't know!

I'm not having any issues but I'm using the DeepMeta program. I find it's the only practical way to upload to IS. Now if I could just get past the "Too feathered or too rough" issue.  ::)

I'm having problems uploading to Istock as well ...

Video / Footage uploads there is a nightmare ... Exclusives only use the FTP method ... Non Exclusives the Nightmare Webpage method

I just painfully watched it upload a shot .. with this method for hours .. got bored went out .. came back ..  tried to move to the next step to put in the details and it asked me to log in again as I have been away and it lost the upload ... Start again ...  then to jump through the hoops regarding a jpg picture as well showing you did the work .. that nobody else asks for .. its like they are making uploading as difficult as possible so people give up and go elsewhere ...

I tried yesterday to upload the same stuff and kept getting an error ... something about header error .. so uploaded elsewhere instead

They must be losing loads of potential footage sales because of the problems they are causing people

Nightmare .. I hope they get it together for footage

Only those non-exclusives who don't apply for an FTP account.  ;D

Yes, it's true, as a non-exclusive you can apply for a video FTP account. Look on the right-hand side of the Upload page, and you'll see a heading labeled "Video FTP account".

Just what I need, more competition ....  :D

The address you need to use is: video-ftp.istockphoto.com

Hopefully that will "resolve" (ouch) your problem.  ;D
