Does anyone know how long it will take for Shutterstock to approve my photos if I submit my 10 pictures this week? 

Very scared.  Don't want to get rejected.

can't say i do, but I don't think it should take TOO long.  They seem pretty determined to not let the cue get the best of them.  The regular image cue is genearlly between 1 hour and 3 days.

As well, is their approval based on technical aspects of the reviewer's preference of what they want to accept?  I hate getting the response we're not looking for these photos at this time - its a real pain because StockXpert did that to me but they only give you so many options and I have so many photos I can't put in.  Its a lose-lose if you guess wrong.  Being new at this, I have lost many times so far.

I believe it took about 10 days for me.  I missed it by one image so I have to wait 3 months.  It's not the end of the world but I wish I would have been able to submit images for the past 3 months.  They will review the images on both quality or technical standards and subject matter.

Just submitted my ten to Shutterstock.  I hope they get by.  I'd just like to thank everyone who's helped me along so far, especially leaf and striker77s.  Thanks a lot for giving me advice on this stuff.

I really hope I'm not rejected from them too, because I'm already feeling a bit dejected from the StockXpert rejection.

I really enjoy this kind of stuff, but it seems that maybe I'm entering too late or something.  I don't want to sound pitiful so I'm going to stop and hopefully Shutterstock will make me smile :)

Thanks again to all those who offered their advice so far.  I really appreciate it.

My three months wait is almost up waiting for a second chance at shutterstock, so for sending the next ten any ideas. I was thinking of submitting my top ten sellers at iStock. I sent my top five sellers to Stockxpert and they were happy.

If it gets into Istock, it should get into shutterstock.  i thinkn it is a good idea to send in best sellers.

just double check for noise.

shutterstock likes their images with NO noise
istock takes general low noise images.

Maybe you already stated this, but what kind of camera are you using Ichiro?

According to the EXIF info from some of his photos that he posted, he is using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.

Well he should have nice clean images as long as the ISO is kept down.  The rebel XT has an excellant sensor.

unless of course he is taking pictures of blue skies, or at night time.

or if you are jacking up the ISO...

or if you shoot underexposed and try to compensate in a RAW converter 2 stops up.

Yes I am using a Digital Rebel XT.  I try to keep the ISO at 100, its native ISO.

Isn't it the case with most, as in 80% of cameras available (or more) that they are noise prone at night or in blue sky situations?

Yes, that is true.  Anytime the visual amplifier is turned up on a camera, you will get noise.  It's sort of like turning up a stereo real loud without any music on (you get a lot of hissing).

Blue sky situations are a little different though.  Noise results from the multitude of color variations.  So it really isn't noise, it just looks like noise.
