Hi!

Is it just me?  2 weeks and more (half a month!) and my images still pending. This is very unusual.

Approval time on Big 4:

1. SS 1-2 day
2. FT 1-2 day
3. iS 2-3 day
4. DT 14+ days!!

Best regards.

I have uploaded some vectors for S. Valentine on January 23.
They are online since February 16

No, it is not just you.

Mine are consistently reviewed with 7 days of upload, been like that for over a year

I haven't uploaded to DT in a while and have a batch from March 9th that still say they have about 50 hours to go. The estimates have gone up several times over the last two weeks so I don't expect 50 hours to happen. It initially said a week (168 hours) but that's clearly not what happened.

These are photos. If "Me" gets a 7 day review then there must be a fast lane and a slow lane at DT and I'm in the not fast lane.

I don't suppose it matters much unless you have a whole portfolio to upload, but I don't remember them ever being this slow before.

DT approval time has been really odd recently lurching from a day to two weeks or more.

However Istock are also taking their sweet time the last batch took 2 weeks to approve.

I think they only have one reviewer, and they are part time only. Such is the state of microstock and Dreamstime

At one time I would have cared about the review times but with my sales (very poor) I simply don't care about it anymore on DT- the most important thing is 'Just sell our images!"   :-\

Mines running at about 2 weeks, but as on most sites, I don't really care. I upload every day, so every day something is getting approved; whether I uploaded it yesterday or last month.

Anyone familar with Londons Tube system will recognise that DTs estimated review time uses the same algorithm as the minutes to arrival board!
