    This thing can also happen to me at Dreamstime.

    Dreamstime is a bit of a joke really at the moment, rejecting everything for no reason, I had an image rejected the other day for, and get this! ""Your illustration has rough edges." ITS A PHOTO!!!!

    To save you the hassle of re-keyword when you upload to different agent. You can keyword them in Photoshop. Will save you all the trouble. You only need to categorise them after uploading.

    Yah. Sometimes I wish they do away with the categorising. If you realise those new microstock agencies, most of them they do away with the category.

    When Dreamstime gets busy. This is what you get for every images submitted.

    "This is a very well covered subject in our data base or the subject of your image is too specific. We are looking for images that exceed the technical quality and creativity of the images already online. Please take a few minutes to browse through the best selling images online (on this subject) and go deeper, play, have a more creative, more personal approach to it, also keeping in mind the technical quality of the image."

    Havnt had that one yet, I currently have over 100 images in the queue, when i submitted last week I got "Thank you for your upload - Current Pending time 38 days" Fantastic. Im contemplating pulling out entirely soon, its hardly worth the time, sales are ****, its gone from being my second best site to being the 2nd worst.

    iStock on the other hand, one of my favourites now, I used to hate it so much, shows how things change with time!

    I think when they have assignments going on, the approval time is very long. I have around 38 days as well pending approval. Dreamstime is not as strict on images as iStock so I basically upload everything. For iStock, I do selective upload. I love fotolia's approval time. It is fast.

    Hope iStock will become my favourite soon.

    i dont tink the assignment is a problem, they have it all the while...

    well with regards to wildstallion's comment on istock, its the reverse for me. though i am not very active there, it used to be very good to me, now its declining..haha
    so constant upload will affect portfolio exposure right?
