To be fair and honest, I should report a 100% acceptance at CanStockPhoto from a batch of 10 last weekend. I was a test batch after a long time with a mix of just OK and good images, your typical batch and not selected for "best".

After the flood of unjust rejection posts here, CanStockPhoto probably reconsidered their rejection criteria. But it's too early to tell.

As to the "changes", CanStockPhoto will mollify its stance about the 15 keyword limit, according to a post of Duncan, and as a result of the vote on CanStockPhoto. All keywords will be used in the search algorithm, with an emphasis on the first 15. Me thinks that's a productive compromise, and as far as I know, also the politic of Fotolia (with 7 keywords).

I like that compromise too.    Glad Duncan was willing to rethink that. :)

And can report the same in the acceptance rate.  No more sweeping rejections after that batch I reported on in the other thread.

Same here. Acceptance back to normal.

Well I just uploaded a test batch of about 62 photos - older stuff, but accepted at most other sites - 48 rejections, mostly for "out of focus". Not the sort of stats that make me want to wast any more time.

I understand the aim of achieving a high "standard" of stock - the problem is when I browse through some of the material is that there are by and large a lot of average images that are presumably of a high technical standard. Will see how the sales go... or don't go.
