Re-upload, Or Try New Photos?

Sun Mar 03, 2013 4:00 am

I am a new member, just uploaded my two photos for review. I would be delighted if they were accepted, but am realistic enough to know that they will probably not be accepted first try. It's the waiting 11 days for only two pictures to be screened that is killing me. My question is, would it be better to try to fix the rejected photos? If they are re-uploaded, do those pictures get screened sooner? Or should I pick two more completely different photos to try again?

Not sure exactly what you are asking. If your images are rejected, they will need to be re-submitted to the queue, and again wait the ~10 days for screening. There is no way for them to be screened sooner. Any other comments about fixing the images would be conjecture without having seen the images in question. For that, there is the Feedback Forum where you can post your images for pre-screening.

Sorry, I may not have asked the question the right way. I chose to upload two photos that probably aren't as good as others I have technically, but I didn't see very many photos of them in the database. (a 1947 Cessna 120, and an Aeronca in flight with snow skis attached.) The other planes I have photos of are more common and there seem to be plenty of photos of them in the database. So I thought the chances of acceptance might be better with the two not so common airplanes. Is that going to make any difference, or should I have simply gone with two photos that looked the best technically?

Rare photos / aircraft and ones that have very few of in the database are likely to be treated as such and have slightly lower standards applied to them than common photos / aircraft. Why don't you do as Dana suggested and post the links on the feedback forum to give you feedback?

As Darren said, I think it makes quite a big difference. Airliners.net is a database, and having every aircraft/registration/paint job/location would therefore be, I would think, the ultimate goal.

It's not exactly a perfect linear relationship though, new and unusual regs will still be rejected fairly often. If you're new, I would try the more commonplace photos if the ones you have now are rejected. However, if the rejection reason is for something fixable (color balance is often a simple adjustment for example) there's no reason not to make some changes then try again, apart from just the number of uploads you are allowed to have at once.
