I have been using Stocksubmitter to upload and submit my video files to different agencies. I would like to try another option and came across Imstocker.

I have read about the submission process . It seems a little more complicated with the plugins, but what I really want to know is that if I need to deal with the CSV crap . In stocksubmitter or directly uploading I can just introduce the metadata , upload and submit. I don't need to introduce data in CSV sheets not export it to csv sheets to import later. I don't want to deal with that.

Is it possible to upload and submit through Imstocker without any CSV creation, interaction,exporting,.....just introducing the metadata in the program, upload and submit like in Stocksubmitter? If this is so I would love to try it out. If not I do not want to waste my time

Thank you

Yes, it is what plugins do. They automatically upload and transfer metadata to microstock agencies without additional actions. They also can upload and attach releases.

For now there are plugins for submission to Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Pond5 and Getty/iStock. You can try it by yourself. There is free full-featured 30-days trial in ImStocker Studio

Thank you very much. I will try it for sure. I am used to stocksubmitter but with escalating prices of that software I am looking at other options.....

That is why I moved to ImStocker. They have the best pricing model out of all of the available tools.

StockSubmitter supports more marketplace auto-submission functionality, but I don't mind doing the final on-site submission process myself. It's mainly the multi-marketplace upload functionality I need, the final submission process doesn't take nearly as much time.

Yes. The price looks very good and I would jump into it with an autosubmission for my videos instantly. But reading through the instructions it seems you still have to deal with CSV templates, exports, etc which is not my thing and another step for errors. I rather pay more and have the assurance that everything will go where it has to go . If someday the video upload process is as streamlined as Stocksubmitter i will for sure give it a chance. Maybe a plugin is on the works to make this possible.

I have been trying out the software and I have to say it is quite good. It is simple to navigate, uploads to agency are quick and the interface is quite modern. You can select the jpgs attached to video files. CSV export is a breeze and already preconfigured for many agencies. I have not tried the submit plugins yet

I had a few questions after the start that were answered very quickly on their telegram support page. Quicker than stock submitter through the chat service. Impressed.

Will I jump from StockSubmitter yet? Not yet, but I keep an eye on it. The largest problem I encountered was to reorder keywords (very important for Adobe stock). I usually submit more than 1000 video clips when I am back from a trip. They are separated by subjects. The problems with Imstocker is that if the files don't have the exact keywords they do not appear on the general keyword panel so you can rearrange them. That forces you to go one by one and rearrange. In Stock Submitter you can select 20 files and even if they have different keywords all of the keywords appear on the keyword panel, you rearrange and every file will have their own keywords rearranged.

This is a huge time saver for me and the reason that for the time being I will still have to stay with SS and pay much more than with Imstocker. I have been told that they might add this feature in the future, so i will keep an eye n it.

It would take me more than a few days to go over +1000 files to rearrange individually, so a large package at SS even if quite more expensive than Imstocker is worth it .

I really like this program and I can see myself using it in my workflow as my main upload/submit option in the future if they can iron out. Also a digital signature would be great so that Norton or Microsoft Defender do not see it as a threat.

Kudos for this development and also for their amazing keywording web site.
