Hi guys,

I joined canstock several years ago as well as other agency. I quit for couple of years and recently i am back to microstock world. I get quite high high high acceptance rate on istock (of course they accept anything now) etc. and half half on some others like fotolia. but it quite surprise me that in canstock, only in canstock i have a extremely low accept rate, which is lower to 0!
since per day i could only submit 25 photos using webpage and usually i got 0 accepted and 25 denied! of course the reason are various but i am quite shock why canstock is now so strict on the review of pictures.

Are they going to not accept anything in the near future?

Strangely enough my last batch was 100% accepted up to that for the last year or so very high rejection rate. Luckily easy upload process so don't really worry too much.

Strict? Don't think so.
Just a double standard over there.
They will except porno images, yet they don't except animal droppings.
Personally I'd get rid of the smut and then they'll have better business. :-\

Same here I throw them a bone occasionally and nearly all were rejected.

However I threw some at them this month and 100% acceptance.

Doesn't make any difference to the sub $10 sales each month though.

Why does it matter there are no sales there don't bother.

Getting images shot at 100 iso rejected for too much noise, and other images shot at f/9 at 35mm getting rejected for too shallow depth of field or out of focus.


I'm not sure what to think of this company

My images often get something like "This image does not appear professional in composition" or "under exposed" but as has been said not enough sales to waste time resubmitting or contacting support.

Their reviews are completely random.
Their system to attach releases is the most stupid that I know
Their sales are almost inexistent.

2 possibilities with them:
- Forget them and don't upload
- Upload and forget them

Its a shame though as though they were never great earners used to be a very solid site

How can they be great earners when most of the images that they reject are through the best sellers on the other sites (in my case)?
Do they really understand what the market asks?

They only seem to sell old images.  I stopped uploading new images a long time ago.

I think they're rejecting almost out of hand at the moment. I've just had a photo of a mallard (a species of duck, in case you don't know) rejected because I don't have  a model release for the image.....I tried to get the duck to sign a release, but it just quacked and swam off.

Then I've had another in the same batch - a swan swimming on a lake in sunset, which was rejected because there was a logo or other copyright material. There is nothing man made at all in the photo - so unless the Queen has now copyrighted all swans (and even then it wouldn't apply as I didn't photograph this one in the UK)....

Some of their rejections are possibly justified (even though I don't upload anything on CanStock that hasn't been accepted by at least 2 other sites), but some are just plain silly !!

Yeah, it would be hard to sell new images since you don't have any.  ;D
