Screener inconsistency

Sat May 05, 2018 11:45 pm

Post an image and it's rejected for over sharpening. Fine, reduce sharpening. Post again. Next screener rejects for another reason not detected by the first. Fine make changes. Next post rejected for over sharpening and something else?
This is getting ridiculous. Images are now at camera settings and being rejected for over sharpened. Recent times I had a high acceptance rate. I have not changed anything in processing yet now none get passed.

Every photographer has different display settings. Every screener has different display and settings. Where is the consistency. What one person see on their screen will be different to a high % of viewer.
So now I'm at the point where an image must have blur added to get passed these over zealous screeners.

Got a lot of Oversharpened as rejection reason these days as well, but I don't know why the photos were still being rejected for Soft after reducing the sharpness by not much.

Fully agree, had the same experience recently. Image rejected for "blurry/oversharpened" -> appealed and rejected for being "soft", edited again and rejected for being "oversharpened", edited again with slightly less sharpening and rejected again for "blurry/soft", edited again with previous settings and got accepted. All I did (beside fixing the additional "overexposed" rejection reason) was adjusting the sharpening within a range of +/- 3%!

To me it also seems that there's currently no screening consistency and that it's more important to reject images rather than accept them.

Hi Andreas,

Was the experience you mentioned with the OY-KAT?

I just stopped uploading after 13 years exactly for that reason. Take a look at my recent odyssee. It became more and more a waste of time.

Hi Andreas,

I've had a look at your OY-KAT images and agree you got the raw end of the deal so to say. The original upload was just a bit soft and the appeal result was correct in my eyes. After that, it should've been an easy acceptance. Sorry for all the trouble.
