I think the first submission takes about a week to be reviewed.  I remember that I when I started there two years ago I had to resubmit my sample images because they had lost it! ::)

How long does the wait for the review of the initial application take?

After going back into "Artist Earnings" Sign-up to sell images it says "You don't need to apply again. Your application is pending and it will be reviewed within a few days."

That's the only indicator that I have that anything is happening ...


Don't look for an email, that's for sure.  There will be message in your inbox on the site.  I was waiting for an email and found out on 21Jan that I was accepted on 3Jan.  I could have already had my whole portfolio uploaded and reviewed by now if they would have sent me an email notification!  Oh well.... ::)

I just got approved at StockXpert :)  We'll see how fast these guys are ... I'm uploading in batches of 5 using the web form.

I gave a chance to SPX since my last dissapointment, and my pictures are waiting since the end of Christmas :(

yeah, after the crazy rejection thing, they kind of lightened up and approvals / rejections seemed to go back to a normal level. However, I've now got a backlog of "pendings" from last year as well...

We'll see...

Crap. I just had about 20 images rejected w/o a single approval ... 45 still pending. I hope that isn't the norm as I've had just about enough of that kind of action the way Fotolia has been heading recently ...

Well, I have three last images (of a 30 image batch) waiting to be approved for 2 days beyond when the other 27 were reviewed.   ???

Also, I had a rejection for "please remove stray areas of background" rejection on some outdoor snow images.  Usually I get those rejections for isolated on white (which I try to correct, but don't complain about), but I don't understand what it is they want me to remove?  The snow in the background gives the images context. 

I also had a rejection of "too many images of the same series" for an image that was the only one of its kind.  I sent two messages via the sitemail (I can't find an email address for support) and still have not received a reply. 

I don't mind having rejections. Nobody is perfect and if the rejection is based on opinion, then I defer to the admins.  It's their site.  On the other hand, if the rejection is basically carelessness or accidental mistake by a reviewer, then I believe the image needs to be reviewed again.

Haste makes waste. :P
