Hi, I am new to iStockphoto. I'm excited to be a member, and I have a couple of questions.
1) I uploaded my first seven photos last Sunday night and they are still in the Pending Status.I read elsewhere on your site where it could take a few days for the files to be inspected. I am non exclusive at this point. Should I be nervous at this point? Do the inspectors work on weekends?
2) This may sound like a dumb question and I apologize in advance. I understand that as long as I am non exclusive, I can post on other sites. Can I post the same picturesthat I have uploaded away from iStockphoto? I looked for information about this elsewhere on your site, but was unable to find it.
Thanks in advance

You can find a lot of useful info here:
CONTRIBUTOR FAQ - READ THIS FIRST
Right now, non exclusive inspections can run to a coupe of weeks or more, although often less. Inspectors live all over the globe, so there is generally someone working at all times and yes, they work weekends too.
As a non exclusive contributor you can post any photo you like to any site, including ones that you have submitted to iStock, only exclusive contributors are barred from doing this. Please have a good read through the FAQs, there's a lot of useful info in there and they answer a lot of common newbie questions.
Finally, if you need help in future, please post in the Help forum.
