iStockphoto is among the oldest micro stock agencies, it was established in 2000 by Bruce Livingstone in Canada, in 2006 Getty Images bought iStock. Unfortunately, the Agency does not support FTP upload. Here we recommend using the separately and freely available tool Deepmeta. So, one is unfortunately forced to upload their pictures again with an additional upload tool. When using your IPTC tagging tool, already created in Lightroom, you can upload images directly. You should note that uploading via the iStock Homepage can be quite cumbersome.
