MicrostockSubmitter / Loading NAS in SS
« on: January 18, 2018, 03:06 »
Hi Niakris,

Quick question; Stocksubmitter has trouble loading my network drives. They are mapped to letters and seemed to load randomly, i usually just close and reload SS repeatedly until they pop up. What is the best way to avoid this and have them load first time? Browsing for folder doesn't work as they aren't under Networks and the Mapped letters don't appear anywhere in the browse for folder list.

Also how do i reset the configuration? I loaded an .ssb from other win7pc to win10pc and it ran really slow so id rather wipe it and start clean.

Also hows the iStock rewrite going?

Hey Niakris,

IT guy tried all your suggestions and more, but no luck. He is pretty certain it isn't our network.

When uploading to Getty and the 'Select a Batch' window pops up, should it display all the batches in the dropdown? My dropdown is blank but I do have an open batch in their system.

On a side note
At the moment Im uploading to ESP through a browser but its a nightmare with their 'keyword terms' thing. Each of my clips has at least 10 keywords flagged for being ambigous and it seems I have to go through each clip individually, which is very time consuming. Im trying to use Stocksubmitters Istock term feature to fix these (as it remembers associations? and is quick to go through) but am not sure if i can then export an excel with this data and import through ESP's template manager?

Does anyone know of a better way of dealing with Gettys strict keyword policy or have had a similiar problem when uploading to Getty?

Tried all regions, same connection error. Uploading through a browser to iStock works fine if that helps.

Anything else I can try?

Hi Niakris,

Just to update. Played with the istock settings and ticked the "consider files without terms filled not ready for upload". I had no idea what keyword terms are but ended up finding your Istock term editor in the advanced editor settings.

I still get the same connection error when trying to upload, but now it at least asks me to name the Batch and set a Batch upload limit. This didn't popup before. It seems to pass the authorization phase and errors when the status says uploading, after about 2 seconds.

Hi guys,

Just having problems uploading to Getty iStock. I've verified my logins details, tried logging into incognito, etc. When clicking upload it pops out a Connection error message: "Check your internet connection and try again". Details say: "Code UnkownConnectionError".

This my first time uploading to Getty so not sure whats the correct way. Any help appreciated!

General Stock Discussion / Metadata Titles and Descriptions
« on: November 23, 2017, 18:10 »
Hi all,

Does anyone know what the general policies are regarding identical metadata for several images or videos? Do all titles and descriptions of videos/images have to be unique? I've tried googling but haven't found anything conclusive.

Thanks in advance!

MicrostockSubmitter / Submissions over error
« on: July 26, 2017, 19:12 »
Hi Niakris,

I posted awhile ago about the submissions error i was getting and have started uploading large quantities again but i am still getting the System/Submissions. 80% of the submissions have completed but the rest keep resulting in the error. See image. I've restarted multiple times and when i click account in Stocksubmitter it opens a browser and confirms i am on an unlimited plan.

Otherwise loving it, Thanks!

  • I'm still getting the submission error message. I've signed into my account and clicking Account/My account takes me to my login and says unlimited, but i still get the errors popping up and i dont think submissions are going through at all. Ive tried restarting the computer and relogging several times. Would restoring configuration or something help?
  • Another issue is i get a dialog pop up box listing jpg previews for upload. But as there are 361 the list is too long and the box stretches from top to bottom of screen. I cant scroll down or see where to click, so i just press enter and i think its confirming. I'm running 1080p resolution and i cant resize it or anything?

Hi Niakris,

Really loving stocksubmitter. Few questions:

  • Is it possible to have a higher FTP thread count than 10?
  • 'System/Submissions over' error - I keep getting this error saying to upgrade now but i have an unlimited subscription account?
    (You used all of your submissions.Upgrade your account or wait 30 days to submit more images)
  • Adobe Stock Login - I get authentication errors sometimes saying to login via incognito browser. I try logging in through multiple ways and restarting StockSub but still cant login. Whats the best way to get this working?


MicrostockSubmitter / Compatible Category list (Video)
« on: May 09, 2017, 21:29 »

Is there a list of compatible video categories. Uploading to 7 sites and only Adobe really has problems. 10% of the time it wont read the category. Also Videohive does the same thing but rarely. I think i've narrowed down the categories that don't register but would be good to have an official list?

thanks guys!

General Stock Discussion / Clips under 5 seconds?
« on: March 06, 2017, 00:49 »
Hi guys,

Just wanted to ask if anyone has any experience in selling very short clips. While most footage stock sellers have a minimum clip duration of 5 seconds, some accept clips that are as short as 3 seconds (Pond5, Getty, Videoblocks, i think).

Has anyone had success selling anything between 3-5 seconds? Or is it not worth the time and just best to focus on clips strictly over 5 seconds? I'd be trashing a lot of clips if i stuck to 5 thought.


MicrostockSubmitter / Re: Uploaded videos filenames
« on: February 23, 2017, 20:52 »
I cant seem to find that option? Is it in site settings or Settings/Metadata? Ill be using simple, a001.mov.

MicrostockSubmitter / Re: Uploaded videos filenames
« on: February 23, 2017, 18:25 »
Sorry just found Niakris already answered the same question that names are only changed when characters aren't supported by the FTP? Accepted characters can only be determined by testing through uploads?


MicrostockSubmitter / Uploaded videos filenames
« on: February 23, 2017, 18:11 »

Quick question regarding filenames, when uploading a video to several major stock sites, the clip is renamed during upload, to something like "UEJTQl9KU19CMDAxX0MwMDE.mov", can this be changed?
