From most stuff being accepted to virtually nothing recent being approved (either rejected outright or 'pending cutout' lol!).....

Not to mention the slightly older stuff which is still 'pending review'.....

What a mess.

Guess they barely need their own database now they use IS.

And haven't had a $10 sale for months.

Another one biting the dust.......

The sudden switch to rejecting almost everything is very annoying, and the ones they accept make no sense.  I suspect it's as you say - they now have iS so doing their own reviews is a waste of money.  The $10 sales also have disappeared.  Regular sales have upticked the past 3-4 weeks but not anywhere near what they were in 2016.  Too bad.

I upload to iStock and Canva, so my photos are duplicated then? That's why they are all rejected?

The rejections there have usually had me scratching my head. Best seller = a background, most backgrounds rejected. Some .png files rejected. Also with no information given there is no way to tell why it was rejected.

For a while sales were quite good there (numbers of sales similar to SS) and with a different sort of market than most of the other sites, but they really fell off a cliff at the end of last year (in March they were behind DT). I fear that they can just get what they want from the Getty database, so why bother reviewing and accepting and hosting their own content. The fact that the artists percentage is double-dipped down to who knows what - potentially 15% of 35% (or 5.25%) doesn't seem to bother them, although it should distress any artist. I keep hoping they will turn around but I see no evidence of it and other than hope I have no reason to believe it will happen. Also they aren't going to be getting any of my new content and very little of my old content through the Getty route.

Seems a trend..... :(

I wonder what happens to isolations from IS etc given they always used to need pngs....

Oh well. We will probably never know. Communication hasn't ever been their forte.

Shame.

For a while they were pretty decent......

I barely upload there now
.
They've gone from best to worst earner in 6 months for me.
* shame as for a long while they seemed like they cared a bit about contributors.
Not anymore.

Hi!

I started uploading back to Canva since early March and I got 0 images reviewed... Anyone had anything approved since they stopped reviewing in early December? In november I started developping illustrations I thought would do well on Canva but since then I haven't even been able to put one online, nothing gets reviewed...?

I upload via WeTransfer and get a receipt when Canva downloads them. Canva downloads, but nothing has been reviewed so far this year.

I've had at least one batch reviewed this year. I don't remember when I uploaded them though, probably January. Sales are way down though.

Update: My stuff's finally in review, with some approved. Some were submitted 2 months ago.

Where are you seeing this?
The page with the files in review is not loading for me as of today.

Weird. Today, the page is no longer working for me, either.

Maybe, just maybe, they are updating a part of the site? They did say 1-2 months ago that they are about to update the site "very soon".

I'm afraid there will be no more sales to check for on the new Canva site!

That's what I figure. I have a small portfolio there, so I can check my public author page to see if anything's made it through in the meantime.

News from Canva on the problem with the portfolio page (contributor email):

Our engineers are working hard to fix the issue, however in the meantime you can use this alternative URL to see your images: www.canva.com/h1-content/portfolio. Use this for the next week and after that the usual page should be working just fine.
