Do you sell photos on many microstock agencies? If yes, GO to download GO Stock
Developed by MyMicrostock & GO Software, it will help to automate repetitive tasks and save time. In this case, we no longer need to login to multiple microstock sites to upload photos and the time saved can be used to shoot and edit more photos.
Basically GO Stock helps you to upload your photos to multiple microstock photography sites via one interface by using their FTP service. Once you browse or drag photos onto the interface and click GO! , GO Stock will upload the photos simultaneously to the selected sites. Keep in mind that every stock photography site has their own setting for FTP. Always refer to the site's help page for the FTP setup.
I belong to 12 agencies. What I do is create a description and a set of keywords that subscribes to criteria for the one agency which is also good for all the others. This minimizes my time tweeking for each agency.
Thanks a lot for sharing your knowlege and for cakes :)
But I have to say that the main problem with multiple uploading (which REALLY takes time) can not be solved by any software. I mean rules for key-wording, descriptions and titles are specific for each agency, so one needs to keyword each photo several times, in fact. Besides, the final part of uploading (categorizing) takes a lot time, as well and this is also unavoidable.
In contrast to keywording and categorizing, FTP uploading itself does not require some remarkable time. I mean that PERSONAL time which one spends to upload files via FTP to one agency is VERY SHORT and almost equal to PERSONAL which one spends to upload files via FTP to 10 agencies. And this time never was a problem.
