How Long Does It Take To Screen A Photo?

I am not talking about the length of the que our anything like that. I am talking about how long the screener is looking at the picture for. I have always wondered this. When my first photo was accepted it said in screening for 1:20 minutes. I had thought that it would only take 15-20 minutes, but obviously I was wrong.

Are there any screeners out there that would be willing to share?

Cheers
Graham


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

I'm admittedly not a screener, but it (obviously) doesn't actually take screeners an hour and twenty minutes to screen a single photograph. Photographs are taken in groups of a few hundred at a time, and while the upload stats page may say "Photo in screening", it doesn't necessarily mean that a screener is looking at that photo at that particular time. A few months ago, it was not uncommon to see a photo "currently in screening" for over a day.

My best guess (and a screener will know for sure) is that it takes about 30 seconds to screen a single photo.

Remember, often times photos pass through multiple stages of screening. I'm guessing every time a photo is passed on, it sits in another queue before being picked up by the next screener.

That is what I was thinking.

Does anyone know how many screeners there are?

I would hope that screening times vary depending on the photo... from under a second in obviously rejectable cases to quite a few minutes when it's a tight call.

 checkmark  Yes, it really depends on photos, from seconds to a few minutes.

Hello

Quoting DeltaAVL (Reply 1):

This is an incorrect statement. For me photographs are taken in batches of 10 or 20. I don't think any screener take batches of a few hundred. If they do they are screening thumbnails  smirk 

Regards

Gary

You misunderstood, I was referring to the photo upload page when it says something like "482 photos not screened yet 162 photos currently in screening."

I had never really given a thought to this before but what Hongyin said was correct.

I did 20 earlier today, the most I ever select in a batch and these were for a first screening

I rejected 8, four with personals (two very poor, rejectable from a thumbnail though still checked properly),
I corrected the information on two, minor changes,
I passed on a comment to the next screener on three
I instant added two.

That all took me 13 minutes
