I have been unable to upload to Veer this afternoon.  FTP doesn't connect and browser upload results in an unknown technical problem.

Anyone else?

FTP didn't work for me today and I had the upload errors via the browser. I find though, that reducing JPEG quality by a smidgeon (as Veer recommends) means that the browser-based upload works.

I'm forgiving them all this because I had my first ever EL sale with them a few days back - $35 for unlimited use (yeah, I  know).

I've had trouble uploading for months now. I emailed support and they said they had a problem and were looking at it .

Still months later it doesn't work.  I use the web upload and it comes up with "unknown error" very helpfull. Tried using FTP and couldn't get it to work either.

So at the moment Veer aren't getting any of my new uploads.

As they are in the low earners category they really need to make this work seemlessly if they want people content.

Just out of interest, have you tried exporting JPEGs at lower quality? It's a PITA but I now export 2 batches of microstock-bound JPEGs from Lightroom - one batch at full quality for other agencies and then the same images in a separate batch at a quality setting of 80 for Veer. The browser uploading seems to work OK with the reduced quality JPEGs and Veer do themselves advise this in their JPEG Upload Howto.

It's been a while since I uploaded microstock anywhere and I'd forgotten this little tidbit when I was uploading to Veer this morning, until I checked the Howto again.

No I haven't tried that, sounds like a PITA.

A few of my photos I resize to help with noise, atilla's artifacts and alike.
For example I have one photos that is 12MP and file size is about 4.8MB and it still won't go through their uploader.

I've managed to get the one or two to go through, like 1 out of 10 attempts

I haven't had any success with ftp there for a while. The web uploader seems to work about 50% of the time. Rather frustrating. I did have a good month there last month though, so I am persisting despite the technical roadblocks they throw up. I do wish the ftp worked.
