    Think I'll remove mine then. Far too long from upload to approval. Been nice meeting you all ;)

    SUGGESTION: When pricing the 4K clip with auto price on downsize put a block that shows the HD price. Allow this information block to auto real time change as an Artist experiments or changes the 4K price. Hate math when I'm just trying to keyword and data input.

    Don't try iStock Steve... A couple years ago their queue was over 90 days. So while Pond5's is MUCH MUCH slower than ShutterStock and a few others, it's still not horrible.

    Rekindle: What do you mean "put a block that shows the HD price"

    On the data input window have a block or input spot where we can put either the HD or 4K price and the other block updates immediately. That way if P5 stays with the percentage difference we can see what the percentage is in real dollars and real time before hitting submit. So if we put a dollar amount in HD it increases it by XX% and populates the 4K block instantly or put a dollar in the 4K and it decreases that amount by XX% and populates the HD spot instantly.

    Can someone tell me how you upload 500 files so quickly?

    Using my son's GB fast internet. It's worth the 200 miles drive.

    tom, one thing you can do to make your uploads faster is ensure that the files are encoded at the same rate as the originals, assuming you do edits.

    for example, if your originals have a bitrate of 60 mb/s, make sure the file you upload is no greater than 60mb/s otherwise you are just wasting bandwidth, space, loading time, etc.

    I use movavi to make sure all of my final files are the same bit rate as the originals (going lower reduces quality, going higher has no benefit).
