I am new to Dreamstime and my first picture upload had a 30 hour wait. All my pictures were accepted, and so I submitted one more about a week later and it said I had an 85 hour wait. They went up and were mostly all accepted as well. The next batch said I had a 89 hour wait and it was around 24 or so hours after the 89 hour wait that they finally went on and all of those were excepted except one. So I calculated the accepted ration and it came out to 94% and my profile says 50% for some reason and they wont tell me why. And now when i try to load a single image it takes over an hour for it to upload per image. Does anybody else have any of these problems? Are they really that slow or is it something im doing, thanks.

the time is approximate based on factors such as time of the week, and the queue in front of you.

It is best to preload at Dreamstime and then release a few at a time. If you load 50 by FTP and submit 5 a day, by the time you get to 40 or so the review time will be almost immediate.

Preloading locks your place in the queue.

I do usually have pending time over 100 hours but thats just a joke, because in fact it usually needs longer then week to get reviewed.

I didnt get that "FTP preupload"? It doesnt really matter if I do upload via FTP and fill all other info immediately or later. The picture still have to wait about week in the queue. Uploaded pictures get pending time immediately after upload so only help is that you know you dont have to fill all description immediately but could wait couple days.

With DT and others so far behind in the number of online images compared to SS, they need to tone down their reviews on trusted sources (people with large portfolios and high acceptance rates) in order to get through the rest of us faster.
