I am very new to iStockPhoto. Can anyone tell me how to bulk-upload from Lightroom 5.
Thanks in advance for any advice you can send my way.

You can't bulk upload to iStock in any form. There is no FTP access or anything like that. The closest you can come is to use DeepMeta. See the iStock Tools/Apps forum for both a Window and a Mac version of this free program. It won't bulk upload but it is close.
With it you can load all the JPG files you have created in Lr or Photoshop (or both). In DM you then need to add your titles, descriptions, and keywords. Once you've done all that, then DM will upload the finished images while you do other things. DM lets you copy titles, descriptions, etc so it simplifies all of the "paperwork". Just be sure copied info still applies to the photos you paste it into before you upload.
It's a grat program and will make you iS life much easier.
