A couple of years ago, inspection times for film-editorial images were very, very slow.
Then, they became as fast as digital ones.
In the last month, it seems to me, they've became very very slow again.

Am I the only one having several editorial photos in the queue older than four weeks???

I see you have one from the 20th July and a few more recent ones still pending in the queue, but I'm not sure what the typical time period is for film scan editorial inspections. If you send contributor relations a ticket they may be able to provide more info on the situation.
Hopefully a passing editorial inspector may be able to shed some light on things but my guess would be that iStock perhaps don't have that many film scan editorial inspectors and as people take holidays at this time of the year which can affect queue length, it may just be a case of having to be patient a while longer.
