How long is QC waiting time on average

Recommended Posts

What is the average waiting time for images to be approved. How long would it take for, let's say, 100 pictures ?

From one day to ten days, depending on your approval history, the queue you end up in, upload errors, and pressure of busyness at Alamy. Generally a few days for me, but I don't upload 100 images at the same time. If longer than 10 days there is a good chance / risk that one of the images has failed QC and 28 days in the bin can be expected before you can deal with the culprit, check and reupload the images in all the waiting batches that will fail if one image fails.

I don'tb think the number of images effects the time taken for your files to be QC'd. I've sent 300+ and they've been available the next day. At first it used to take a few days. As Niels says, it goes off approval history. Good incentive to check everything at 100%  :)

I submitted 44 images on Tuesday afternoon and they where ready for tagging this morning (Friday). Just waiting for the search engine to pick them up and make them available now.

As said, number of images makes no difference. Over the last 4 weeks or so I have had submissions go through next day, three days and 5 days. So, for me, I guess an average would be 2/3 days. If I upload on a Sunday evening, they are usually ready for key wording on the tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning.

 

I dont tend to worry too much about QC time unless it goes over 7 days.
