It is much faster for me now and I even had my first side show sale after the upgrade. $3 for a medium size image, not bad, if they only would be more frequently. SY

Good to here, I must say compared to some other "upgrades" we lived through on other stock sites, Lucky Oliver's went pretty smooth, not without hiccups, but at least they were not for days off line or so, SY

I have not had a sale since October 10th. This on a portfolio of 562 pictures, selling really well on most other sites. Lucky Oliver are all talk and no action as far as I am concerned.

Sorry, I just left there.  I had all of five sales since I joined (among the first ones there).  They were all in the early days. I stopped uploading after fifty and started to get very concerned when some of my best selling images on other sites had no sales on LO but had over a thousand views on each one.  Maybe I'm just paranoid, but either way, as of this week I am no longer on there.

i ul'ded like 500 images there but it is annoying for me that some of my designs are rejected for `not including some keywords`, or something,
it really de-motivate me to ul to such a new site after getting rejected because of keywords, since i use the same sets for all sites including istock, to bigstock, and they are all accepted there
and about sales,
not mcuh, 16 sales last month, with 10 usd income for about 500 images,
so if i can ul like 50.000 images, it will start to make some difference :)

Let me explain the key word thing: Lucky Oliver uses the key word "illustration" to distinguish between jpg photos and illustrations in the search, so that somebody that searches for "cat" can decide if they want to  see photos or illustrations or both of a cat. Btw, they don't get rejected, they just get send back to your submission area to add the missing word, so that you don't have to upload them again. Hope that helps, SY

That is the point, "illustration" helps to distinguish between jpg photos and jpg illustrations, as Lucky Oliver doesn't accept any other format at the moment then jpg. The other thing is that sometimes it is very borderline if you call it a photo or an illustration because often it is a mix of the both and very difficult to decide. SY

the site is a bit quicker, still experiencing some bugs when trying to send files in for submission.  Other than that the usual, lots of views and hardly any downloads.

grrrrrrr....

Just had another one bounced back for no description.  Seriously this is becoming a pain in the butt.  The descriptions are there, but then for some reason they dissappear when they get sent in.  Been happening almost every batch I have submitted in the past month.  Worst yet though was 3 files that were sent back out of 1 batch, when I checked the files in the submit area, they all had descriptions, so I resubmitted.  They were accepted but they somehow got submitted two times each.  3 of the 6 were rejected as duplicates.. lol that was the best one yet.

So things are running quicker, but not smoother.  Really starting to thinnk twice about this one.  Have over 13000 views and a grand total of 11 sales adding up to $10 since June or July.  I keep hearing it is because the site is so new, but that's starting to get a bit old.

I think that LO made mistake with their upgrade in november/december. Those are most valuable and downloadable months in year but their site is only in part functional. Everybody knows how long fotolia was down after their upgrade. They didnt learn from fotolias mistakes.
