iStockPhoto.com / Can't Upload with DeepMeta
« on: July 09, 2009, 03:52 »
Many colleagues are reporting failed uploads by DeepMeta and also on the official IS forum seems other people report the same.

The problematic thing is that administrator Slobo declared "I would say that support for third party software is far down on iStock's priority list. Besides, it kills the queue. So, from iStockphoto's perspective it only brings good, no need to rush.".

Is this meaning that we have to come back to the cumbersome and time-consuming web upload?
Is that a move by IS to clear the approval queue?

What do u think?

Hi All,

anybody using iStock RSS feeds of latest approved images embedded in your own website?

I am investigating the potential of SimplePie for my Joomla-powered website but from a quick review seems IS RSS feeds are not handled properly...

Any other idea will be highly appreciated.

there is anybody having experience with the IS Payoneer card in Europe in terms of cost of transactions?

The pricing scheme on the site say that for transaction outside US the fee is "$0.00 + upto 3% of transaction amount". What do exactly translate in real life?

There is anything else hidden that I should know?

Thanks!

Software - General / Anyone wants a Cushystock license?
« on: October 21, 2008, 14:09 »
Dears,

I am giving away for 50% of retail price a license for latest version of Cushystock.

With no offense for the developer who made truly excellent job, only after the purchase, I realized that Cushystock is not the tool i am looking for.

For those interested, payment on Paypal.
Regards,

Dear All,

I just purchased a license for CushyStock and started to familiarize with it.
I have tried to import a portfolio from an agency and Cushy is asking me to match each image he retrieve from the web with a local JPG file.
Is this meaning that I need to feed Cushy with all the folders that contain the JPG images?

Is this also meaning that i need to keep for Cushy a set of folder with all JPEG for his management?

If YES this is quite disturbing for me as my Archive is made of RAW+TIFF, all JPG are deleted after submission...

Thanks,

Antonio
