I am new- My stuff has been sitting on approval for over 5 days now

I uploaded 22 images on 7/16. they started off at 156 hours. It is now 7/21 and my images are saying 124 hours.

why is the approval time so long?

More contrributors with more images. Be patient - it takes time.

I had a image that took 3 weeks plus to get approved so all you have to do is wait, wait,wait!

Good luck with you time at DT as I see you are new here.

Hiya Sophie


It does sometimes take a while for all of us to get reviewed but rest assured your time will come. I have seen reviews come very fast on the other hand. In most cases they come in pretty close to their ETR give or take regardless of what the hours say. You could be surprised any moment now! ;)

Welcome Again and dont forget to Enjoy and have Fun Here

This place is not a joke, you can submit only high quality images - no noise, no lens flare, good composition, e.t.c. Others agencies request all this, too. You can not submit some cheap snapshoots and earn big money, in stock photo it is wrong! You can earn from other contributors, it takes time and work... What to do or not, it is your choice!

I am sorry, but if it is like that try to learn from your refusals. Get over your pride and be honest with yourself... it works!

He needs to be paitient. pending time are just estimates.

Some i submitted today have less pending time than some i submitted 2 days ago.

I've noticed pending time goes faster if you don't dwell on it.

Good luck, Sophielarue! :) Sometimes we all have to wait days until the images are approved...

Sophie don't give up, I started here in November 2009, I'm just an amateur photographer learning, I only have 14 images on line, but so far I have sold nine! I find this is a good place to learn, every one is friendly and offer help, encouragement and good tips. Hang in there. :)
