Today I finally uploaded my first 20 images, then reviewed them, edited some keywords, shortened some titles to less than 50 characters, figured out the rights and submitted them.
It took since March 4th, 2010 when I joined until today to prepare my images for upload. I had already submitted a few dozen images to another stock site but, wanted to re-do my files from the top to make sure I was submitting the best images as well as title, descriptions and keywords.
I am very new to the world of stock photography and stock images and am learning a lot every day.
I was a bit surprised to learn that the time for my reviews wouldn't be for 4 to 5 days.
As the message boards said, there is a lot of activity going on right now. Other waiting times can be shorter. It just depends.
