I am new to LO, is it normal, that the review time of your images takes over two weeks? They have not been reviewed yet. They are my first submitted images..

They were reveiwed overnight for me (that was very early on) and most new images are reviewed overnight aswell.

For me the batch from Sept.1 was reviewed Sept 2, but the batches from Sept.2 and on are still in the queue.
On Sept.6, they mentioned that, in other words, they were swamped...  here is the thread:

I just received word that the queues are longer partly because some of the staff has fallen sick.  So I guess all that we can do is try to be patient (and pray for that the staff will feel better soon).

I am too busy praying for more sales at LO.  Still a tad to slow though apparently they still haven't started their marketing.

But if we are so kind to pray for the health of the LO staff, they might do a better marketing and review our files faster. We might be blessed with more sales :-) However lets pray for the staff without expecting sth for ourself, thats the proper prayer :)

Anyone know what the current review time is? I submitted my first 3 so I could be approved. I got approved quickly overnight. So then I was thinking, cool, maybe I won't have to wait weeks for my images to get reviewed. I submitted 80+ on Tuesday, but am not really sure how long it will take. I would like to upload more, but I want to wait and see what gets approved from my first batch. So anyway, anyone know?

No specific review time average, some batches can be grouped together.  I almost waited for a month for some September batches, because they were attracting quite a lot of new photographers, me included (I waited a few months to see if the site was not only stabilizing but getting some strength and some positive review feedbacks, which it did).  So they were quick to train some new approvers, and now the review time is quite good.  The reviews are signed, and the personal feedbacks are very helpful.
Here are the waiting dates for my last reviews:
23, 26, 27, 28 Oct ---> reviewed 31 Oct
4 Nov ---> reviewed 4 Nov
10 Nov ---> reviewed 14 Nov
16 Nov ---> pending, but I don't expect it to be for more than a few days.
Hope this helps.

Holy crap! So I just checked the site again and 82 out of 83 images were accepted! That never happens to me! :)

Just echoing berryspun with my experience. Some batches took forever (weeks). But in all fairness, lately, I've been getting reviewed in as little as 12 hours. As you can imagine just by looking at the quantities you yourself are uploading, the folks at LO are loaded with work, not only reviewing all those massive submissions, but doing major work on upgrading the site! I think Bryan and the gang are doing a heck of a job.  My experience with LO has been great!!

...a quick update,  just had less than  18 hour approval at LO.  As Darth Vadar once said,  " Most Impressive! "

I've been waiting for a couple of days for my reviews.  They haven't even deleted one image I submitted by mistake (I emailed them about it).  But in general yes, they are very quick.

Adelaide

Okay, I know this is an old post... I can't resist adding to it.... I was keywording and submitting images two nights ago and I couldn't find them anywhere.... then I realized that the first ones were approved before I even finished the balance of of them.  I think I experienced the fastest reviews in the history of microstock.    Last night was almost as fast.   A couple hours!

REviews here are flying, upload at night reviewed the next morning. I also get better feedback here than at most other sights.

Wow... the acceptance at LO come even faster than the rejects at StockXpert   :D

....I can only guess that the pix at LO  weren't   "too dark" like they are when they're at StockXpert.   maybe the monitors at StockXpert need a little calibrating...

LO review is quite fast these days.  Image submitted yesterday late at night were already reviewed today.

Regards,
Adelaide

PS: don't tell anyone, but StockXpert has been approving my illustrations lately.

Fast?  My last batch waited I think 5 or more days (reviewed today).  It's not normally like this, but it was last week.

Review times indeed seem to slow down a bit. Sales are slow but steady (on par with 123RF and Featurepics, much better than StockXpert, no match for SS, Dreamstime, Fotolia and BigStock - with the same photos submitted to each of them) with about 500 photos in my portfolio. They are in the process of starting their marketing, so I'm hoping the best.

All the best,
Michael

It may be that LO has focused its efforts on stock shows and whatnot, but their reviews seem to have slowed to a crawl.

They have had a few sickness in their reviewing team and are about a week behind (read on another forum yesterday).  Bryan has been swanning off doing trade shows as well (I would prefer they focus on this side of things rather than the approvals).

Thanks for the info.  Let's hope they're all on the mend.

Have to say that my last 2 submissions to LO went through in less than 2 hours each after uploading. Thanks to Karin for her speedy work. On the other hand, SS seems to be slowing down a tad bit--about 15 hours for my last 2 submissions.

Yeah, sorry about that guys.  You're submitting tons of new images- we're flattered. While we'd love to quickly go through them all, we feel like it's important to maintain the same level of quality. We're diggin' in trying to put the extra time into the reviews.

We're also continuing to build the team to meet the increase in volume.

Thanks for hanging in there!
