How I automated my microstock process and reached profit.

I have more than six months experience working on microstock.

At The first weeks I had sent my photos via a web form, it was very slow and not


Uploading of small amount of photos on just one stock took a bunch time and required constant control.

Next, I learned about the possibility of uploading photos by the protocol FTP - it allowed to speed-up the process. Then I discovered the IPTC meta tags.

By this time I was already registered on 4 stoks, i need to write notes about files

uploaded to a website and so on. Uploading of photos take all my free time and not

allow to make something else.

And then I got to thinking - how can streamline and automate the uploading of files on multiple stocks simultaneously.

so, I am IT-guy and very lazy person;) i decided to write a script that will do all this dirty work for me, and I could spend my time with more pleasure.

As a result, I received the script for the command line that runs on Windows, and on Linux.

That's what he can do:

- Add IPTC information to the photos from a text file.

- Download, reconnect and continue downloading of files if connection was broken.

- Upload files to one or more stocks in full automatic mode.

- Hybernate laptop when upload finished

And that's not all :)

In further i'll add the ability to speed-up uploading in several times,

and you may completely switch-off the laptop, but the files will still be uploading to the stock ;) (It will be possible when setting up your VPS server)

PS: Yes, I know that there are many similar programs, with a better interface and a lot of features, but they have the following disadvantages (for me at least):

- Too cumbersome and not convenient.

- Does not always work stable, and some of them is not work at all.

- They are cost an arm and a leg :) and require money every month.
