Who Reviews?

Are the photographs reviewed by people or a computer program does any one know or are there just a set of refusal reasons assigned to each refused picture?

It's people who review. Otherwise how can a computer say "This is not what we are looking for" in some cases.
It has to be trained people who use specialized software to check for problems one by one. Maybe one guy specializes in JPEG artifacts and another in color? Maybe it is like a manufacturing line. Our photos go in past a number of reviewers who look at different aspects. And suppose the fourth one has the task of checking the composition and he finds it bad, he declines it and you automatically get a preset "bad composition" rejection.
Of course, we can't expect them to type whole reasons. They have quite a few thousand photos a day.

People just like me and you. You should trust them, if you follow their advices and read carefully the reasons you will improve your acceptance rate and also the sales!

Hi Alisonun, I'm one of Dreamstime's reviewers, and I'm a human, trust me :)

Actually, each photo submitted to Dreamstime gets to be seen at full size by at least one (human) reviewer. The rest of the review process cannot be publicly disclosed, but we're trying to fit the high standards demanded by our buyers.

Some of the refusal reasons are standard, some of them are custom written, depending on many factors.

Thanks Dudau for putting a human face on the review process.

Bound to be. Otherwise all artistic images would be rejected. Only humans can understand that part.

How many images do you have to go through each day?
It's got to be a large number!

Nospmisk, it depends on each reviewer. It's not a given norm, but it is quite a large number per average.

Do all the reviewers work in the Dreamstime office, or are there reviewers spread out in different locations?
