Patience.

You need this when waiting for images to be reviewed and when waiting for sales if your going to see any progess in microstock. iStock review times are currently 7+ days for me but in the past as short as 4 days. It can be fraustrating waiting a week for a photo to be rejected but this only adds to the importance of submitting only your best content.

Generally Dreamstime  will review images faster than iStock but at times i can be just as long.

If you are looking for faster review times try Shutterstock and Fotolia which are a couple of days.

Believe me, you want them to take their time.  Seems like when there is a push to cut down on review times there are more rejections along the lines of "When in doubt, throw it out". 

If the reviewers aren't under the gun they may be in a more accepting mood... :)

I once almost fell off the chair when I had one turned around in one day. Never happened again.

When I started with iStock over three years ago I was anxious and frustrated that review times there were usually around five days ---IF ONLY I COULD RETURN TO THAT! A couple of weeks ago it actually took two full weeks for a review. The photo was accepted, but still, two weeks?

when I started, it took two weeks for each review, thereabouts. and of course with a few rejections, they then make you wait out a certain length of time like a month or three months or something like that. it took me five attempts to get on iStock. that was four years ago.

I'm having some weird experiences with them at the moment... I have some images that have been waiting for 8 days, but I put another batch up last night and some of them been approved by this morning. The rest of last night's batch are all still at pending status. I'm wondering if images in certain categories either get prioritised or pushed through to certain reviewers... maybe there's relatively little traffic in the categories that my accepted images from last night fall into.

I have 2 pending since october  :D  I'd raise a ticket but, for some strange reason, lack sufficient enthusiasm

"Fill it; Shut it; Forget it" used to be the catch phrase of a 2-wheeler ad to highlight the higher mileage of the vehicle. With IS, I follow the "Upload it; Submit it; Forget it" mantra :)

PS: It used to take 10 days for the review of images. Currently it takes around 8-9 days.

More than 8 days + for me for image. According to the other agencies, that's long.
