" Submitted last month " -what a pathetic message  :(

I have some files with "Submitted 2 months ago"...

In a funny way I am glad that you wait 2 months.
That "Submitted 2 months ago" of yours state one thing only : that you are Ai "artist" which existence in a stock industry is actually cause of this all review time problem and this whole Ai charade.

Thanks Michael, I appreciate your courtesy very much. To clarify, yes, there is a large volume of generative AI content coming in which has created a backlog in the moderation queue. As mentioned, we have recently set upload limits to give the moderation team a chance to catch up in the queue. We are looking at up to 5 weeks in some cases for review times. I'm hopeful we will get that wait time down to a more reasonable level in the weeks to come.

Thanks to most of you ;) for your patience,

Mat Hayward

Unfortunately review times are well over 5 weeks now. In fact, they are over two months now. So review times on AI images are still going up and not down as hoped for. Seems like the deluge of AI content is still increasing and they are not able to catch up and review files within a reasonable time period. Not sure why they dont simply hire more reviewers to tackle the increased volume. Seems like a simple solution and the right things to do. Presumably contributors are losing money from the heavy delays in getting the content online and so is Adobe.

I find my weekly upload of 25 images are reviewed in 1 week - However the last 2 weeks every single image has been rejected due to quality which is ridiculous as they are no different in quality from my other 8000 approved images and I have never had more than 1 or 2 rejections each week historically......will see what happened this week!

i usually expect to wait about a week for a review, makes me less likely to post stuff that is in the news and wont stay there long

Its not only review time that has taken a hit in recent times. There are mainly three items which are bad in shape.

1. Review Time (my old is Submitted 21 days ago, 86 are in review queue)
2. Pending Payment (Requested on 21st July, still in pending state)
3. Sale (Earlier every other day sale used to be. Now Nothing after 11thJuly)

Looks like Adobe Stock is in Pause mode for strange reasons. Not sure Why Adobe is facing the issues which other agencies are not having at all. SS is reviewing fast even the illustrations. May be it is workflow issue or just bad luck on the sides of contributors. I still miss old Fotolia which used to be the most contributor friendly company.
Take care Buddies. That's how life works !

Finally my payment was released on 28/29 July.

Adobe have serious issues which are preventing them from reviewing images in under a month and preventing them from not rejecting a whole batch at once, hopefully they sort their business methods out next year

It's ridiculous. Adobe has no problem, they sell, and don't need validation of new images to make a profit. On the other hand, yes, some contributors have problems not having a growing portfolio, to represent something other than a micro drop in an ocean of images.
But quality portfolios are still favored by algorithms, and that's good :)

How do I know if I'm favored or not?

Be sure that prompters flooding their AI will be very soon not favored...  ;)

The introduction with ridiculous is of course always a good argument and a good start for a discussion at eye level.

Many of my pictures are now in their third month on hold.

Summer landscapes and cityscapes from Holland that are not yet represented at Adobe and are doing well at other agencies.

So, your conclusion is to find ridiculous that Adobe don't review your pictures whereas they are doing well elsewhere...  why not. personaly, I would not blame you.

Well, if flooding the collection with useless AI images without any quality control, while rejecting real, unique photos from experienced artists is "doing well", then I would say that Adobe is doing great indeed!

good news they fixed it!  now the banner says reviews will take up to 8 weeks which is much more accurate.

Adobe definitely changed something: now instead of waiting 2 months for reviews , my jpegs are reviewed in 1-3 days, but most of them are rejected for quality control.  Before, I use to wait 2 months, but 100% of them were accepted. (Be careful what you wish for 😂)
Review times for png are now longer, 3 weeks instead of 2

My eye for my own quality control with a 30 years of experience didnt change. Im utterly confused. My only guess that Adobe hired more reviewers, but didnt educate them? Why such a drastic change?

You really need to have a thick skin to continue in stock business rejections and copycats are my daily reality now.

This happened to me last week, but only for newly submitted images. They were reviewed within 1-3 days, while I have many images still waiting to be reviewed for over a month.

But it has stopped now. I had no images reviewed in 5 days, neither new nor old.

For some reason my AI pictures does not get reviewed for a week now. Neither accepted nor rejected. I upload daily and the last month I had every day reviewed images. Did something change this year? Or is it maybe because of personal shortage because of start of the year or something?

Editorial images I believe get reviewed more quickly.

Had exactly the same thing. Last saturday I uploaded some AI-images in the same quality as some I did before (and which already sold on Adobe Stock). All of them were rejected about 12 hours later because of quality issues. This is very strange. They usually take weeks to review and now in the weekend they can review with in 12 hours?

GOOD NEWS! thx
Only consider that the time of human AI prompters maybe already finished. Adobe knows they will propose directly AI generation in the hands of their customers, with real time quality evolution.

Sure, not that soon, but they already organise the(yr) future.

Adobe is obviously interested in all the money they will keep without the royalties given to human prompters uploading rapidly outdated images generated by rapidly evolving technology.

Real photos will remain real photos.
On the other hand, portfolios mixing images generated by AI and real photographs may pose a problem for them. Maybe some -enthusiastic, euphoric, and already constantly complaining immaturely- contributors should think about it.
