My images take a long time to review.
I uploaded the first image on April 10. A week later 8 of them were accepted, within a week about 4 more images were accepted. The rest are still hanging there. I now have over 60 images that are still being reviewed. I wanted to ask why they are taking so long to be reviewed. How much time should pass before they are accepted.
I also wanted to ask. What is the difference between the images in the releases tab? Are the 12 images I've had accepted that are images for sale? What is the purpose of the releases tab?
If you look through the forum you will see many people share your experiences of waiting for review.
I see that you're a first time visitor her to the Community Forum. Take some time while you're here to peruse some if the ither recent posts and you'll see that this is a frequent topic of discussion. Due to the huge influx of Generative AI assets, many of them from Contributors who are uploading hundreds, or even thousands, at a time, the backlog of assets waiting to be reviewed is enormous. It is actually surprising that you got any reviewed so quickly. The wait time is now estimated at 1-2 months. The fact that you don't know what the Releases tab is for seems to indicate that you have not read the Adobe Stock Help pages. Before you upload any more assets, read all of the info that Adobe has provided, particularly the info relating to Generative AI assets. The Releases tab is where the Model Releases or Property Releases that you've uploaded and attached to your assets are stored.
Accepted pictures are up for sale. You can look at your portfolio (https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/account, click the link:) to see what is online.
And before that they were not on sale?
Correct. Assets cannot be seen by Buyers, therefore are not "on sale" until they have been reviewed and approved by Moderators. This would all be clear to you if you took the time to read the Help pages at the link I provided above...
