I'm interested in possibly contributing to the Panther Media collection, but I wanna know what the back end of the site is like. When it comes to smaller agencies, easy, fast, hassle free uploading of a big portfolio is a must. How does PM compare to say, Most Photos, quite possibly the fastest, easiest site to upload to, ever! LOL (0 sales, but its so fast, can't hurt....).

personally it's one of the worst,

categories, drop downs for number of people, seperate most important 8 keywords, etc.  Similar to alamy if you contribute there. I takes me roughly the same time to go through an image as does for one on istock.

they annouced a few weeks back that there was going to be big changes within a couple of weeks.  I'm waiting to see what they bring. other than that I have a pile I uploaded and when I'm really bored I click a few through.

So this means that we will see the new upload system in a few days?

I would wait until we see update.  I have avoided them because its so painful to upload.

How will the new upload system be? Do you plan to release any API?

The painful upload is what keeps me from going all out and uploading my collection.  From the small amount of images I've gotten online there, sales are decent.

You can upload via ftp which is great, but the submission process could be faster. Sales are pretty regular for me and the min payout is low (around $30-40 USD) so its worth it for me.

The upload system looks like to me as it is still the same. Any updates on when the new system will come?

Could you share what makes it "painful"?

look at YAY Micro and compare. YAY Micro is getting it right for making the upload process as user friendly as possible. With other words

fast manual upload
no category selection
reading out iptc data
no keyword splitting

I think this would be the main things that are missing at panthermedia.

I would love to put my portfolio up on their site, but till something is improved, I'm hesitant to move. Time is money, and frankly, I don't even know if they are worth the time to upload to. I'm on several low/no earning sites, but I was also able to upload over a 1,000 shots in one or two days with ease, which reduced the size of the gamble. If they want to grow, they gotta stream line their submission system, otherwise photographers are just plain old hesitant to indirectly invest money into getting their ports submitted.

It is around the corner, in the final testing phase.

Great news - can't wait to try it out.
