Does that mean I'm in, as accepted??  I mean I have my account and all, and one did get approved.  I have like 55 in wait.

Also, can someone please tell me if it is possible to edit or delete a file that is in wait?  I have realized my keywording error, in that I had over 20 keywords.  I'd like to try and speed the review process along, if my keywording is holding it up.

Thank you  8)

Hi,

We do not 'approve' people we approve art.  So yes one file means you are live on the site.

There is no 20 keyword limit. We read the first 40 IPTC keywords, and edit them as necessary.     There is no way to speed the process along as we are working as fast humanly possible for reviews.  When we run out of people, we employ more, however things must be done in balance. This helps ensure long-term profitability.


Thanks,
Keith Tuomi

Thank you Keith.  That is a relief, in that I am willing to be patient, as you are in Beta.  My latest frustration is trying to upload HTTP graphics lol.  They never show up, and the page just sits and spins with no bar showing progress of upload.  I think I will just FTP them from here on.

The bigger relief is I don't have to rekeyword lol   ;D

Well things like that can happen. There is no software that I know of that let you look at your shots on your disk in a synoptic table with title/description/keywords before upload. The Vista explorer lets you do it but only for title and with add-ons also description and keywords - but it's all in 1 row.

What I advise you is to upload all to FeaturePics only first, which is very fast, and where you can then crawl thru your shots one by one and scrutinize the actual IPTC info like it was accepted. Correct typos and even gross mistakes in the IPTC on your disk then. Then erase the shots on FP and reupload, and reupload to anybody else after that.

There are many sites that put restrictions on title/descr/keywds changes even in pre-acceptance mode as the title for instance is part of the url. Better be sure before you upload to Zymmetrical and the like.

Ah! This is vital info that should be on-site IMHO. That means for instance that if you order your kwds alphabetically and it's a waterfall, and you have 50 kwds, the "waterfall" won't even be read on ZYM.

I must be perceived as a missionary by some but sorting keywords in order of relevance in your IPTC is the way to go. More sites will do it sooner or later.

Well with my new work, that's easy.  But when plundering through my stash that I have created over the past few years, it gets hairy lol.  I've been using Irfanview and double check before uploads, and correcting any errors.  It's just different, and different isn't bad.  It doesn't help that I got an impatient streak in me lol
