Default PSA - Submitting Photos for the first time

Hello,
I recently sent a small order to PSA to have a few photographs authenticated for the first time. My question is will these orders be tracked the same way as cards? The reason I ask is that my shipment was signed for on November 2nd but does not show in my Order Status section. It does show that PSA has received my package within the "track my package" section in the PSA website. Just curious if anyone can advise me. Thank you!

You are not alone. For whatever reason, PSA (photographs), even though they use the same PSA order tracking system as PSA proper, do not upload the order until the order is essentially complete. My personal experience: Package received, no news for 2-3 months, then the results are uploaded to a newly created order number, followed by a day or two later, upload the tracking, then the order ships.

I've had photo submissions that basically entered the system for the first time when it was complete.

This is correct.
I've had a few photos at PSA for a couple months now that still do not even show as received, but I know they have them as I had someone at PSA confirm they had my package.

Is PSA taking months to do photos now? Even when they had their years long backup on cards, it seemed the photos were getting done in about 3-5 weeks or so.

FWIW, I've sent three photo submissions in this year, each only containing 2-4 photos. The first two submissions took 5 and 4 weeks respectively. My current submission is on week 8 now, so hopefully it's finished soon.

Perhaps you guys can clarify for me? Does it really cost $50 to submit a photo and another $30 for the encapsulation? I have a few snapshots I'd send in but not at that price.

Yes, that's the lowest value tier.

Wow. $80 to slab a photo. Regardless of what you think about slabbing photos or the Type system, that is a ridiculous price.
I have to assume they raised prices to try to cut the volume. Seems that prices out most photos from ever being certed/slabbed. Hard to justify spending $80 to slab a photo worth under $500.

Maybe BVG as an option? I have a graded photo but it does not use the Type system, just says original photo.

It has always been pretty close to that price; definitely no bargain.

They do, the main problem is they dont know how to name a photo half the time. Is it a snapshot or a type 1 Or an Original photo? I have seen both called both. Dont get me started on companies that dont know a type 1 from a type 2 or 3 Etc. Theyre all guilty of that.

Another big issue is bvg slabs feel like they were sitting in a warehouse from the 90s. They arent clear and theyre extremely bulky. Wish they would team up with csg or something for photos. Would be a great duo.

The Type system was invented by Henry Yee and Marshall Fogel. It has been copyrighted and licensed to PSA exclusively since 2007. As far as I am aware, none of the grading companies are legally allowed to use the type system without their consent.

Snapshot generally means what? Mine has the Kodak Velox on the back.

In baseball terms essentially it means it was taken by a Spectator or fan in an Informal setting. 99% of the time with a small handheld camera and much of the time being Kodak branded in the 40s and onward. Usually no special pose or anything like that (though you see snaps with posing that are very beautiful and desirable) basically a photo me or you would take today on vacation or your mom took of you as a kid in your baseball uniform is a snapshot.
Your photo is just that as well, looks like it was taken by a family member. Not the media or a pro photographer.
