At the moment it costs the same as Stock Submitter (and no more if you use both). It basically means that if they support the agency, then the app uploads just one copy of the file to their servers and they onward upload and submit to the agency. Maybe not a great advantage with still photos, but it makes a big difference with videos

SS is free up to 33 images per agency, which I seldom go over.  So M+ would be free for me as well......?

Yes, it's using exactly the same subscription model and they share the same accounts.
So you can use your SS account to log into M+.
They can also be integrated to keep using SS interface while the uploading and submission process is actually performed by M+ under the hood.
You can also sync the agencies login credentials and releases database from SS to M+.

123rf: if the files have _ready_ status after uploading it means they were not really uploaded - there was some error that you can check using the "Errors" button.

Okay. I'll give it a try.

Okay.  I have a few questions about M+

1. When I upload to M+ via SS, the status indicator in SS is not registering the agency stats.  Is this normal?  If it is, how do I track what has and has not been upload to M+ via SS?

2. Since I have had so much problem with SS, I am not sure what has or has not been uploaded using SS.  If I upload images to M+ and submit images to agencies, that are duplicates of images that have already been uploaded via SS, what happens?

Shutterstock will reject duplicates, although it is not a great plan to send them many duplicate files. Better to sort out where you are with them and then start clean with M+

Yeah, that is a good idea.  I see that M+ syncs back information to SS about the stats of images.  That is good.  One my hugest battles is keeping track of what has been uploaded and what has not because I have such inconsistent results using SS. I think I am going to like using M+ a lot better.

I have another question.  If I am running SS on a desktop and a laptop (for travel) will M+ sync the stats of images with both installations if they are logged into the same account?  For example.  Say I am traveling and capture a bunch of images that I upload with my laptop.  When I get home I always back up my images to my desktop for safekeeping and long term organization.  Then say, I open this folder of images that were uploaded to M+ on my laptop in my Desktop SS app, will they show the same status as the images in M+?  Is that status information (i.e. ready, uploaded, submitted) stored locally in the image metadata?

Sorry - I don't know the answer to that

All the status information is stored locally in the image metadata, yes. In JPEG previews, specifically.
So if you have a video (for example) on two devices and want to copy the status information and metadata from one of them to another - it's enough to copy the JPEG preview.

All of the non-standard metadata is stored in the EXIF UserComment field in an encoded format.

Is there any way to edit this data to mark images as submitted that I know for 100% positive have been submitted by SS, but SS failed to register this information on the image?

It's not easy if you would like to do it manually.
You can do it in the SS interface.

The option in the interface can only be applied to ALL agencies, not to specific ones.  It would be awesome of you added to option to adjust the status of each individual image to each agency.

You can do it by clicking a specific agency status and selecting a new one :)
