Thanks. But the button "Management Area" had been replaced by "Contributors area" :)

Desperately need to capability to set keywords, categories etc on multiple images at once, and to easily copy them around from one image to another.

as Brg1990 asked I want to know also if I have multiple files isn't there a way to edit more images at once and then submit. I mean set categories for 10 images at once. Is like indexing feature on other stock agencies.

How can i submit multiple files at the same time? One by one making 570 images is very long time....
