Since I started submitted images to the Micro stock agencies in November, I have noticed the delay times for their reviewing of images is increasing. I am currently with Fotolia, Dreamstime, and istockphoto. I have unscientifically noticed Fotolia and istock taking longer. Dreamstime provides a time to go estimate in their system, so it's easier to track. When I first start loading with them, the delay was 4-5 days. In December, it increased to around 7 days. Yesterday I loaded images and it has increased to 10 days. Wondering if anyone else is notice this slow down, and I'm wondering if it is due to an increase in traffic (either due to high volume of input, or less staff due to the holidays?).

I have found that this constantly varies. Dreamstime often says 5 days then 3 hours later they are online. Other times it takes the full time period. You'll see this change all through the year. Right now it is probably because they are behind from all the holiday submissions, with less staff than normal.
