Starting today, iStock contributors will be able view your approval percentages, right from the comfort of your upload page.
Go take a look, folks.

Gulp. Did just that. NOT pretty. Let me just say the switch to 250 sales for exclusivity would not have applied to me because my approval % is well below 50 >:(

77% for me but I am more careful with them than most sites.  Don't want to go through that upload process for nothing.

Ugghhhh, my approval rate is a depressing 58.46%  - - - despite my care in uploading only that which is "good enough", this number is 30% lower than everywhere else.

I sometimes have to push myself to upload to IS - especially so lately, as my new stuff seems to be going nowhere in a hurry.

79% for me. I probably should be happy with that but I've never been a C student, and I don't want to start now.

66.4% for me.

77%...  Interesting.

My spreadsheet I've been keeping since not long after I started microstock works out to 82% for IS..  I assume this is because it doesn't take into account stuff that has been 'dollar binned' and deleted?

Either that or my spreadsheet is broke.  Might check. :-)

Sharply...  I'm surprised yours is that low, you do some good stuff.

Cheers, Me.

Oh how I wish it wasn't ... I can't believe what they reject sometimes.
IS is my bane.

61.54%......... that sux! ....   however, let us all remember that many of those rejections DO finally get accepted after modification.  I assume that percentage is the initial rejections.  Many of my rejects only required a minor adjustment ( removal of a nike logo off a model's sock and nonsense like that).  So overall, we're still not so bad?        or are we....

Before this thread I thought these numbers were terrible but you give me some comfort...

Mine is 62%.  So it looks like I am in some very good company.

I am surprized that some of you (which I consider to be lot better photographers) have lower acceptance rate than me.

And I totally upload everything I have to iStock (since I hit the upload limit only couple of times in a year I have been doing this).

At last! A good development from iS, and one that doesn't bring the whole system crashing down around our ears, assign weird keywords, or take months of extra work to sort out.   ;)

Mind you, not quite so good when I see my figure ... 66%

Never mind. I take it as a call to do better.

I wonder if they will alter the search in favor of those with a higher acceptance rate?

If they haven't already, why would they now? It's not like they haven't had this information all along. Now they are just sharing it with us.

That's what I get nailed for the most  "over filtered" "over processed" .....   all this time I think I'm making it look better...  LOL   8)-tom

60.49% for me.

Is there any problem having a high rejection rate at IS?  I am not careful, like some of you are, I just wait for some sites to maybe reject for some reason I can correct.  If they were faster at review, I would not wait these other sites' inspections.

Regards,
Adelaide

It's not really a problem per se, but more of an inconvenience. The only thing stopping me from having a larger portfolio on IS is time. Uploading an image that I think will make the grade - it's accepted by five other agencies afterall - only to have it rejected (usually for being "overfiltered") wastes a week of time before I can try again with something else.

Hmmm... mine's 82.66%.  I'm disappointed with that.  It was 86% until last week when an inspector decided to reject three files for 'artifacts'.

ARTIFACTS?  I NEVER have artifacts or noise.  NEVER, NEVER, NEVER.

Three files sent off to scout......

Inspector must have been out on the town the night before......

Heh, mine sometimes get rejected for having artifacts even after I downsize from 17MP to 2MP!
