Hello, I have been here since the beginning of June and have had 1 accepted and a few rejected. The feedback on the rejections did help. Question - what is Disambiguation ? I have one photo there. Is it in some kind of holding pattern?

you might want to try to ask this sort of question on the "Help" forum, you will most likely get more feedback.
Disambiguation is on your keywords. When you add your keywords you will often get a choice of variations of a keyword denoted by a +, click on that and you will get more options to disambiguate your keyword. for example "orange" will give you a choice of (descriptive colour) or (citrus fruit). tick the "orange" that applies to your keyword and also pay attention to the (citrus fruit) as that is a keyword that is also accurate. "bird" would give you many choices but also take note of the (vertebrate) next to bird as this is a valuable hint for another accurate keyword. "florida" will also give you many choices where the location is in the state but also take note of the (southern usa) which again is another accurate keyword.
good luck with this, it is annoying to say the least, but a little effort in mastering the keywording process is almost more valuable than taking nice quality photos.

New here and excited for the connection. I love art - maybe not the greatest but it affects me so much that I spend a great deal of time on it.

Does anyone know if there are any plans for a RESTful API?
I would like to integrate more stock photos into my site: ZenImg

Hello fellow iStockers!
I have recently been accepted into iStockphoto with my 2nd attempt. My 1st attempt was back in 2005! I've got 2 images approved since then. When I received my very first "acceptance notice" email, I jumped up for joy.
Happy shooting and uploading!

Hello all, I'm fairly new here and having a blast so far!
I have been accepted as both an audio and photo contributor. I'm working on growing my portfolio and coming up with new concepts.
I'm not really sure about how the friend and networking part works just yet but have been lucky enough to get some downloads and nice reviews.
Thanks to all the forum contributors, I have learned a ton from reading these posts!
Im excited to be a part of this! Thanks!

Dutch, 19 years old and started in May with Istock and loving it so far. Even though things go slowly at the moment, I may not complain with already 6 downloads after 12 photos accepted. Unfortunately I don't always have enough time to get out for photography, but the downloads and earnings are definitely an encouragement to do this much more often.
Very great to be part of this big community
