iSyndica do many less important things but don't do (maybe can not do) the most timetaking thing: keywording. without submission prosess, iSyndica means nothing. multiple uploading can be done with fxp methods with much more cheaper. "analysis your earning" is just a "financial masturbation".

I never understood why people would pay for Isyndica. The only thing it saves is bandwidth. If you have enough of that, Filezilla does the same, and free. There is this hoax going around that Filezilla only can upload to one site at a time. It's not true. You can queue your images to all sites you want and then let it go. You can also send different file versions to different sites, like 5MP to SS and 12MP to DT,BigStock, etc... something that Isyndica doesn't do.


Signed up with them a few months back and I must say I realy like it.  Sure it seems it only saves you bandwidth, which means litle when you have a good internet connection (my case as well).  But see, I don't have the generate a 5MP version for SS off of the 12MP version I send to DT, FT, off of the 48MB version I send to Alamy: the system does all this for me automatically.  I upload my 18MP images with the keywords added in lightroom and onfigured my agency accounts so custom variants are created for me automatically.  No more * around with 10,000 versions for each agency or worse, having to manage updating keywords on all those variants.  That by itself is worth paying 20 bucks a year to me, though actually I upgraded to a premium subscription with their new pricing change.  I'd prefer is I didn't have to pay for each file transfer, but at the end of the day, I save so much time that it's a smal price to pay

Can't imagine why you would finagle over a few dollars and then waste hours and hours trying to hack something up with Filezilla and still not have any solution to upload different resolutions to different agencies, having to create all of those yoursef, and manage them (and add the * color profile and all that mess for Alamy).
Wish they did a bit more for model releases though.  It's great they added them but I still have to go tie them up on the agency site and they don't support iStock for MRs yet.

That said, I heard rumors that they're converting their affiliate program to give out cash instead of credits, so... go ahead and make me some money  ;D newbielink:http://vds.isyndica.com/Affiliate/hdrhack [nonactive] - you really won't regret it - stop wasting your time trying to figure out hacks that only waste more of your time - are you in to sell photos or to fart around?

If you are only doing stills then it *might* just be as easy or easier to upload them to agencies yourself.  But if you are doing video and contribute to a bunch of agencies, iSyndica is a godsend.

I have the fastest non-business internet connection you can buy in Kansas with 2mbit upload speed.  I can upload a single 250mb clip to Pond5 is a little more than 4 minutes. But not all sites have FTP as fast as Pond5.  That same clips takes 15 minutes to upload to one EU agency I submit to and almost 45 minutes to another.  In February I produced and uploaded well over 100 clips.  There is no way I could have distributed them everywhere I submit to without iSyndica.

And their new pricing structure is great.

Do u really resize for different agencies !??  heard of this before, but I just send my measly 10MP to ALL !!  Why do this ??

What's this about Alamy and colour profiles ??  in the dark here too !! 

I agree it's a nice package, I just have the $20 one, but it's worth 12 a yr for me to see ALL my stats laid out on 1 page !!  :)

I have come to love aspects of iSyndica, but feel stuck with the Standard subscription only for the unnatural restriction to only one Custom FTP channel (which Shutterstock must occupy).

I actually feel kind of ripped off, as their pricing page simply check marks Custom FTP channels (plural) and boast "You can configure up to 20 customized Generic FTP channels and transfer your items to any accessible FTP and Secure FTP servers as easily as with natively supported agencies." at the end of the page.

No mention of a crippling restriction to only one Custom FTP channel.

I cannot upload anything to Isyndica. I have a standard subscription, but the java or whatever uploader seems broken. Uploads terminate after a few seconds with some 417 error. Does anyone else have that problem?

FTP upload is only available for premium and pro accounts not for standard accounts.

Hey shiyali - sorry to hear about this problem.  Shouldn't be happening and if Standard works fine for you that's perfectly fine as well.  Contact us on our support and we'll work it out for you.  We're using a Flash uploader that usually works just fine but in some cases indeed has a few issues, so we'll also have a regular form post upload coming in pretty soon to address such cases.  But there might be something we can do for you in the meantime.  E-mail or use our contact form.

Cheers - S

i looked at it, but it doesnt really do much for me at  the moment -- i just set uploads at the end of the day;  my bottleneck is clicking thru indiv images on dt, big,  to add the worthless categories or on ft to tfr keywords that yhey could EASILY read themselves since they capture all the info.   you still need to do that with isyn

i played with video a bit last year, but with 100 clips, only pond has shown any results - not a sale at ss, revo; but i decide to try again, isyn will definitely be my choice
