Wow, good question, I was just about to post a thread about it.... I just joined StockXpert, and I honestly can't stand their categorizing system... of course there is a chance I am doing something wrong.

Now first I ftp. Then I process, then my 50 a day files go to a folder, once i click on that folder I have to assignd categories either one by one or I go to the full list and apply categories to batches (also a painful process)... is there a trick I am missing? Or is their categories system really that painful?

thanks :)

ChasingMoments,

I'm afraid I can't help as I've been stuck at 65 images in "pending" ... now I used the web form to get them there. I have no idea why they haven't ever moved anywhere else. I've been wondering if its because I haven't categorized them ...

If someone knows that this has to be done for them to be approved could someone please tell me. I thought after I had uploaded with IPTC data attached through they're web form that all I would have to do is wait until they were approved ... then categorize if I liked ... Please let me know if I am wrong as its been a couple of weeks with those images sitting in their queue ... it could be that they're just way behind on approving new batches of photos ...

I never add catagories. Maybe thats why my sales stink  :-\

My last batch was approved within 48hrs. Previous two took up to 10 days. I would however click on one of your pending files and ensure the IPTC did in fact make it through with the file.

I always use the web form (I never upload more than 4 images at one time anyway) and I always add categories upon uploading.  Now, I think it was said somewhere that categories are not mandatory - or am I mistaking this with another site?  Have you checked their FAQ?

Regards,
Adelaide

that is correct, categories are voluntary

I've had several accepted there now so it seems to work with the webform (very easy) and I haven't added any categories but plan to add them ... but it didn't appear that they were a requirement prior to the images being approved.
