Even the BigStock button no longer works now. Wonder if if a new version of PicNiche will be available sometime , beacause I love the tool!

Yes, it's great and bobbigmac has made some recent small adjustments. However, I believe that he said that it is getting expensive and time-consuming to maintain and that he is not upgrading all areas. You could send him a message. Hopefully those who are using it are paying for it now and then via make a contribution.

I think, it's worth paying for it. Would be nice, if the tool would work like 2 or 3 years ago.

I regularly use it for keywording and I really like it. Uploading/distributing to the agencies, however, never worked for me reliable enough. Far too often meta data got randomly lost in space creating a time consuming mess. But I haven't tried again for almost a year. So maybe this bug is fixed now. I use my bluehost (symbiostock) account to distribute stuff to the micros via SSH script, which is a nice extra benefit I get out of self-hosting.

Will have the Bigstock button fixed sometime today/tomorrow. They've changed their design so I will figure out a new spec for it soon :)

Fixed Bigstock.
Probably will never get round to adding further features to this toolbar, the changing agency sites (anyone who used the ImageDeck will know what I mean :) ) and the time required to maintain around changes is too much for a free toolbar (even the approval process for firefox addons has changed so much that pushing a client-side update takes aaaages (weeks) for them to approve and release), but if any of the pollers stop working please drop me a message and I'll update asap. I generally catch the big 6 pretty quick, but can be tricky to find a spare half hour or so to 'code' and apply an update.
Thx for the heads up :)
