Hi, 

good evening to you all. happy
I noticed and hear people "complaining" - talking - about how long it sometimes takes just to add a photo to a bottle.
offcourse it takes a bit of time to work on some of the pictures an upload them, but  i frequently hear people talking about foto's that are uploaded by members that take 2-3 months before they are added to the base.
Why does this take so long? Maybe cause some inactive or lesser active specialist? 


KR, cheers, "pip pip" and all of that.. happy
Henri

Hi Henri,

I guess it's because of the huge load of pictures... There are currently more than 2300 pictures pending. And not every mod/admin/specialist is also an expert in photoshop (I don't even have it on my PC...) so only some experts are processing them.
So just stay patient and have a dram happy  no image gets lost.
Cheers, Andreas

That's why you probably need to add more manpower for this jobhappy

Hey, I happened to notice this conversation. I'm pretty proficient in Photoshop (I've been using it for twenty years, also I use it professionally) and the photos I submit are usually approved pretty quickly. I always submit them as PNGs with an alpha channel so they look their best. If you guys want to throw a couple of batches of images my way every so often to work on, that wouldn't be a problem.

as far as i can see, the backlog in pictures is around 1,5 month and that is acceptable for me .

Sorry to drag this up again but I'd like to repeat my offer to help relieve the backlog if at all possible and/or wanted. I have a bit of time right now and know from experience that editing these images is relatively easy, I don't know how many volunteers there are over here but one or two more couldn't hurt, right..?

We have a backlog of about 2 months at the moment with ca. 4000 pictures waiting to be processed. I am currently counting more than 60 new uploads per day..

If you want to help the moderators in processing images more quickly, read and apply Menno's Photoshop manual:

Removing backgrounds, scaling bottles and checking for redundant images and copyright violations takes time. Even if you are quick, each upload keeps you busy for 10-15 minutes. With 4000 images, you can do the math...
