I just had a 100% rejection after waiting weeks... So after 6 years 4500 files and 150,000dls ......and now I get mass rejections?....I say SS has become clouded with future flops like skillfeed and Offset. SS should get review times back to normal and stop using barn yard animal as reviewers.

Since dropping my crown, i've been communicating w one of the content managers and was told that now silhouettes even need property release. Seems like they are tightening reviews which i think is a pain but good on the overall nature of this business. harder to abuse copyrighted content.

But how does one provide an original when they create it entirely with software? If they want releases like this they need to require them for every single vector submission. Not some weeks and not others. I can make ink drawings and ink-like drawings. They can't tell which one has an original. So then they've got to require everything has a release. To me, this is unprofessional conduct.

I've been lucky so far, only having run into these rejections once.

I have the same problem, 95% of my work is created with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. How exactly do I provide an "original"?

At istock, they wanted you to take screen shots of your work in progress. It was a pain and that whole process prevented me from even designing for istock submissions.
I always thought istock had it a little too strict that prevented me from creating cool digital files that i had a hard way of proving i made it.

Yuck. I suppose I'll play along if that's what it comes to.

The 2-3 week review times makes this whole situation more frustrating.

Indeed. I'd rather just resubmit and resubmit until they complain before I go through that hassle.
