Hi Franky.

I don't know why, but my DM doesn't start. I hit the icon, it seems to start but doesn't open anything and no process is running. So, before installing again, is there some workaround to try? File to rename as .old to generate a new one? Something like that. :0) Not sure if it has something to do with some Java new update or other new installed application conflict.

Thanks and have a great weekend.

You could try to reboot and then start DeepMeta. If that doesn't work, you could try a repair and if that fails a restart.
DeepMeta uses the .Net framework, and does not rely on Java.

Good luck!

I am having a strange thing happen with lightbox links ... when I upload to IS the link has this in it "/lightbox%20images" but when I fetch file data from site it comes back with this in it "/lightbox%2520images" and obviously the image is not visible. Is this a DM thing or a site thing?




This definitely happens on upload, as in it is in DM correctly but the image link  is changed when it gets to IS ..... any ideas?

Using spaces in filenames and directory names in web addresses can be problematic.
"%20" is one way that spaces are represented in URLs.

Percent signs are also problematic.
"%25" is one way that percent signs are represented in URLs.

Save yourself a lot of grief and change your "/lightbox images" directory to something like "/lightboximages" or "/lightbox_images". Or "/turnips", or anything without spaces

I keep getting this message every time I try to upload three or more model releases on a Mac pro laptop. What should I do?

Unfortunately for about the last 24 hours I can't seem to upload any new files to iStock with Deep Meta. I am not sure when the problem might have actually started happening though (in the event it is a server related problem) as I haven't tried to upload anything for the last 7 days. I imagine this is an isolated problem to my machine though and that other people are not having any Deep Meta upload problems?

What happens is I start to upload what is in my file upload cue and it just sits there trying to upload the first file and just continues trying to upload the first file indefinitely and never completes the upload. There are no error messages though. Eventually I just quit the program and restart to stop the process.

I have tried to restart Deep Meta and then restart the upload about 10 times already with the same result. I have also rebooted my machine a few times, as well as having disconnected and reconnected my internet connection a few times and unfortunately the problem remains the same.

Cheers for any troubleshooting ideas you may be able to offer...

OK I will give that a go Theasis, but until now it hasnt been a problem, so something has happened recently to change how the text is rendered on the way through DM to IS.


Done ... thank goodness for Find and Replace

In control panel, where you'd uninstall, sometimes there is an additional option "repair". If it's not there, yes, just do an uninstall and reinstall.

Looks like your system complains there is not enough RAM memory to load/manipulate the image. This could mean you don't have much memory in your system (or other apps are using it), or the image is particularly big.

You could try closing some applications, or do the same action right after a fresh boot.

There seem to be no other reports of upload problems at the moment, so it may be caused by a network condition on your end. Can you do other actions with DeepMeta, like fetching file data from iStock.?

I ran some of my usual encoding tests, with foreign and special characters, and got exactly the same result as you did: %11 got replaced with %2511.

After some digging, I found out this may actually be good news (apart from the trouble it gave you, sorry about that). A few months ago, iStock has been working hard to finally fix the encoding bugs that were in the iStock API since the beginning. They have managed to fix these, but somehow those fixes didn't make it to the actual site (yet).

From what I see now, it looks like those fixes have been deployed. If so, this is a great moment! I have had to invent work-arounds to all the encoding issues, and had to switch these on or off independently, depending on the iStock site conditions. I had about 16 of these, some for the description field, others for the keywords, title and editorial caption. Of course, these only worked partially: encoding issues must be taken care of at the root of the problem.

I'll contact iStock about this, but if this is what I think it is, I'm very grateful for the hard work iStock developers did in nailing these pesky issues!

I have now switched the DeepMeta configuration to disable all these work-arounds. These settings will load in DeepMeta when it starts up, so you will have to restart DeepMeta.

Let me know if you now still have these %25 issues.
Fingers crossed ...

Cheers Franky. I figured the problem was limited to my connection. I am doing a stats fetch right now and it is working, albeit it very slow and it took far longer than normal to get it started. Perhaps I just have a very slow server connection right now via DM for some reason and maybe even an upload would complete if I let it run for a long enough time. I am heading out right now and I will leave DM connected for a few hours and see if it completes a couple of uploads while I am out.


What is interesting though is that I don't have any other internet speed issues. Web runs normal, email is normal, and the iStock site loads in my browser at normal speed. So it seems like the speed issue on stats fetching is an isolated issue as well as perhaps a very slow uploading issue as well (assuming I can get a file upload to complete). I will report again later when I get back as to if the uploads were successful.


Cheers...

I just wanted to update that eventually I was able to get a few files uploaded today via DM, but it took around 3 hours to complete 4 files. Normally it is no more than about 4-5 minutes for a file to upload. I am not sure where the problem actually lies at the moment, but I feel my internet connection is working normally overall and at usual speeds for other internet tasks. Thanks again for your help and I am sure it is an isolated problem I am having so I am hoping eventually it just resolves on its own somehow perhaps. Best wishes...

Great, thanks for reporting back. I suppose it could just be the iStock API servers being very busy or so. I believe they are separate from the servers that host the iStock website. This might explain you're getting normal network speed for most sites, including iStock, but sluggish response from DeepMeta.

It's just a possible explanation, I don't have any inside knowledge on this.

Thanks for looking into Franky. I cant check the lightbox thing at the moment ... I did as Theasis suggested and got rid of the %20 space at the source. Hopefully they are all sorted now.

Hi, Franky. On the subject of Views, I wonder if there is a way to get DM to track views from people not logged in to the site, as used to be the case? I find it useful to know if there is interest in my images, regardless of whether or not the viewer is logged in? In particular, it's a way of knowing if exposure on Internet search engines is having any effect.

The view count listed by DeepMeta is the same as the count shown at the site to the owner of the file. This is also what the iStock API reports. It may be that over the years, iStock has changed the way views are registered, but as far as I know, there is still only one view count.

I suppose other metrics would be welcome to contributors, but the iStock site would have to implement them, and also make them available through the API. To be honest, I don't see that happening, at least not short term.

PS. I agree those counts would be very useful. I wasn't even aware counts of non-logged in users are not registered, as you say. I assumed the view counts were simply broken during some time.

You had some dialogue with Brenda a while back, Franky, at a time when iStock's programmers were still saying that nothing had changed with the recording of views since September 2012.

This story changed a month or so ago. While views continue to be mis-reported (according to the old way), views now work in a new way. Apparently, you have to be logged in and registered with iStock as a buyer before your image view will count. Which explains why many uploads remain stubbornly on '0 views' after several weeks and months.

By the way, is there a distinction between buyers and contributors? Or are we all members, who contribute and buy impartially?

Thanks for your reply, Franky.

Hello Franky (and everybody... )

I just go around my older photos that have no view and I wanted to update the wrong keywords or those lacking.
I notice that when i put my keywords in French in DeepMeta there were often errors in translation (for example "mystery" gives in French "Dassault Mystere Falcon" instead of "Mystery" normally).

and I went to see the photo page of IS, in fact some of keywords are incorrect.

==> So, is it possible to enter a portion of the keywords in French and an other part in English (U.S.) to be sure of the translation and good referencing images ?? and is it inconvenient ?

in fact I've realized that many of my photos don't appear in search because of the translations ...
I know that discussion about putting keywords directly in English took place but I can not find where ...

thanks
