Hello,

I'm just wondering how long does it take to get your images approved (or rejected)?

Couple of days, a week, more?

Thank you!

5 days. I'm fanatical about timing. 5 days is about right.

I uploaded on the 14th of July 2 images on of them got rejected on the 18th and one got approved today the 19th....

 

so 4 to 5 days approximately, so the best way is to use up your upload limitations and keep snapping and keep them lined up....

Mine took mostly about a day, sometimes 2, not counting weekends - except yesterday, when one pic took only 3 hours!


 What's the record?

I'm glad you asked the questions I had the same issue.  It seems to be taking about 5 days.

I don't know what Gannet77 is smoking but I want some. With the queue as big as it is (in the 18000s) it is taking 5-8 days. 40 inspectors for that many photos, I feel for the inspectors.

So, do exclusives get preference from the inspectors? How long does it take for their photos to get checked? I reckon, with more and more photographers submitting, iStock should think about employing more inspectors.


Mine take about 5 days.

Yes, exclusives have a separate queue. It is running at about 2 days currently. Gannet77 is no doubt uploading film scans, which have their own queue also (as do vectors) which tends to be much faster. Keep uploading a few each day, the week will go by fast enough, and soon you'll be receiving responses every day as they make their way through the queue...
