I noticed that too. Same object and then shot at 30mm, 35mm, 40mm, 45mm, then turned to 30 degrees left, 35 degrees left and so on, and then turned to all possible angles to the right and shot 20 times..... it's crazy, I think they should reject such stuff, no wonder, some people have 20k+ images.

For example: http://www.shutterstock.com/portfolio/search.mhtml?gallery_landing=1&gallery_id=1256674&page=1&safesearch=1&sort_method=newest

This is just ridiculous, what they're accepting.

Another 1.9 million files accepted in the last month and they are rejecting too much?

it's the new generation of photographer that grew up without the ability to have rejection or failure because it might single them out and be discriminatory and/or hurt their feelings. ever notice how they call it an inspector and not an editor? editor's reject work that is weak, imagine that. i remember when 10%-15% was a very good acceptance rate and now the new acceptance rate is 80%++ and the whining over the other 20% of rejection is just a little bit over the top.

what a joke that is, and yep ridiculous sums it up. gee whiz i have 6000 images of the same shot on SS. and now i will come to MSG and whine because they did not take them all, there should have been 7000 of the same thing and they rejected me. boo hoo.

Anyway, posting so many images of the same thing I think it's a mistake. If I was a buyer, I wouldn't bother to look at portfolio of someone, who has a whole page of same thing, shot 100 different times.

that is not a mistake, that is lack of editing.

Ok you win that is hilarious.  35,000 pictures of one piece of weed, he would probably have the same amount of sales with that collection edited down to 20 images.

The point is that SS accepts way more images than they should.  If you can't get images in now you need to re-evaluate what you are doing.

Anyhoo...

I agree completely it's about incorrect reviews, accepting way too many images.  Just do a search of basically any common keyword and sort by newest it's pretty much a guarantee that there will be many many examples of huge amounts of similars accepted when just one or two would cover the concept or subject.

go easy on him, he is from the generation that has never known the process of editing images and has a sense of entitlement that every shot he takes is acceptable.

the following article pretty much sums it up...

They are accepting too many images - in some cases.
They are rejecting too many images - in some cases.

All in all their review process is broken.
That's what it is about.

Just keep resubmitting they will eventually accept everything.   ;)

And iStock is not accepting everything? They accepted some of my images, that even I myself would reject them.

if you yourself rejected them, then who submitted them? or is it a habit to submit work you would personally reject?

I agree they should be rejecting more, you won't ever hear me complain about a rejection, ever.  Just because they will accept an image doesn't mean it's worth my time or self respect to upload it.  I don't think you do yourself any favors by submitting sub par work and what's even worse is complaining that it was rejected.

ETA:  I meant in general all the complaining about rejections for what is surely sub par work, that part wasn't specifically aimed at you.

I do think that is true.
When you look at the latest accepted images it's clear some reviewers will accept just about anything.

Seems to be the fashion.
I wonder what's the hidden agenda?

Ah you're only pissed because he drowned out all of your maryjane shots :D

Love the guy's FB page  Stock Pot-Ography  :o ::) ;D

Now if he shot catnip I'd really like that  :)
