Upload your image (s) as before.
a) If you use Web Upload, your pictures will be automatically accepted
b) If you use Web FTP Upload, you must, as before, then still import your images from the tab “FTP Upload” into the system, and they will then be accepted automatically.
IPTC information embedded in the file
If you've used IPTC information and it's complete, your image is now fully active and on sale. The traffic light on the picture in your account is green / yellow.
If the minimum requirements for metadata were not met your your image has the status "incomplete" and it can not yet be found in searches. After adding the minimum metadata (caption and at least 8 keywords) the traffic light on your image will change to green / yellow.
This status, indicates that your image is live, active and on sale, but has not passed through screening, yet. A rejection of an image or it being sent to "amend" (red / green) is still possible. After successfully completing the screening process the traffic light changes to green.
If you have model or property releases (MR / PR), then, as before, they still need to be added, otherwise the images will be displayed with the status No Model Release / No Property Release, which is detrimental to the sales potential. As soon as you have added an MR and / or a PR, the release status will be automatically updated, and after the next search index update the status "Model Release Exists / Property Release Exists" will be displayed.
If an image is to be classified as editorial, you must mark it as editorial immediately in the image processing screen as before.
No IPTC information
If you did not use IPTC information, your image will now be uploaded, but not yet on sale. It has the status "incomplete".
You can now add the metadata to your image as before. Once you have added the keywords, the caption and, if applicable, model or property releases or editorial classification, your image will automatically be searchable after the next update of the search index, and the traffic light on the image will change to "yellow/green".
For SEO reasons a minimum of metadata is required for activation, consisting of at least a caption and eight keywords.
"Green / yellow" indicates that your image is live, active and on sale, but has not yet passed screening. A rejection of the picture or it being sent to "amend" (red / green) is still possible. After successfully completing screening, the traffic light changes to green.
