Hello everyone,

For those interested I developed a free open-source tool to help photographers with the keywording process. I called it StockFlooder.
Here are the features to this date:
- Get suggested similar images
- Get suggested keywords
- Upload to your favorite stock photography websites with embedded keywords
- Monitor your earnings

The keywords are embedded in the JPEG files so they will automatically be added on the websites.
You can upload to multiple websites at once (via FTP).
The software is developed in Python so it should work on Linux, MacOs and Windows. (some dependancies need to be installed though)
The software is still in development so please bear with its remaining bugs and report them on the sourceforge website (the earnings monitor does not work so well for now).

You can find the software and view some screenshots here: newbielink:http://sourceforge.net/projects/stockflooder/ [nonactive]

Thanks for commenting.

Seems promising but some install instructions would be welcome

I managed to download the files, install Python on my PC but still no success: Once I click one of the .py files in the folder, a window opens briefly but then closes again. Indeed an installer would be very helpful since most photographers might have only limited programming/administratin skills.

Your program sounds very interesting so Id love to give it a try!

Have no idea how to install it, I even hardly know what Python is. You should make the installation file, exe or something. Now, when Prostockmaster is stupidly connected with Lightburner (you have to pay big monthly fees) you can make hay selling your keywording program for lets say $10.

At least provide a compiled version otherwise i'm afraid nobody will bother with it.

I'm new to Python but I did a test install on my windows8 laptop
installed python 3.3 from here http://www.python.org/getit/windows/
and PythonQT4 from here http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/software/pyqt/download
I downloaded your files and unzipped them

When I open and run stockflodder.py in python gui shell I get this

Traceback (most recent call last):

Too bad noone seems the tool to even get to run!
z00b, Id really appreciate some feedback from you since we did not hear back after your initial announcement several days ago!

Hi guys !

Sorry for not answering sooner.
I'm really busy these days with writing my PhD (on a totally different topic).

To be honest I never tried this software on Windows, so I cannot guaranty 100% it works.

I will still be too busy in the next two months or so to make a fully functional and packaged version.

My intent for releasing this version was for people with computer skills to test it out and report bugs, but in the end the timing is not great.

I promise I'll work on a release version this fall.

Meanwhile, if people with minimal python skills wanna keep trying the software and report bugs, please do so.

Keep in touch !
