You need a lot more photos on iStockphoto before you start to see some real sales. Keep uploading!

You will eventually get used to the strict standards at IS.  Their strict reviews will help improve the quality of your photography.

Like you I was frustrated at first, but I now have nearly 500 images there and hardly ever get a rejection nowadays.  My overall acceptance rate is 84% including my first submissions.

Lots of people criticise IS, but their reviewers are usually right and their high standard is one of the prime reasons they have so many buying customers.

I agree with Hatman.

Istock has forced me to become a much better photographer. They are strict but you just have to learn and improve. Better quality = more sales potential.

I've been with IS for a couple months (only 35 pics) and have recently started to focus on uploading more. For me they are just now really starting to pick up momentum.

Hang in there.

I am just now starting to upload there. Only 4 online so far. $2.30 sale though.  8)
Lots of rejections though, especially on illustrations.

Istock have by far the highest standards. I have uploaded 50 images this month over 5 sites. They have all been accepted by 4 of the sites(except one small batch waiting approval at StockXpert)  but IS rejected 7 of them.
I'm not complaining because they were right in the reasons given and I will be able to re-submit them when I adjust them but IS more than any make you improve your standards which overall will benefit all the agencies.
