Manual or automated image moderation: Which one fits my company?

Image moderation can be done manually or automatically. With manual moderation, every photo goes through human moderators who check the submissions’ quality. Automated moderation, on the other hand, makes use of a program that performs that same checking, sorting, deleting, and other function that its human counterpart performs.
Both types of moderation processes are efficient and widely used by online communities catering to various kinds of audiences. However, the type that suits your company best depends on the kind of website you run.

Manual moderation
The basics of photo moderation explains that the manual process works best for small communities, websites that publish original content, and brand pages that need to uphold strict ethics or viewer discretion.
Websites dealing with sensitive content or hold photography contests require conscious judgment about each entry’s quality and appropriateness. As this is something that unmanned computer programs cannot provide, an image moderation team is what you need.
Automated moderation
Automated moderation is advisable for websites that receives thousands of photo submissions a day and those that need to publish multitudes of posts following a schedule. This will work for you if you only need a photo moderation software capable of:

•   Sorting files

•   Detecting inappropriate content

•   Searching duplicate content

•   Making auto-enhancements

•   Checking captions and metadata

•   Recognizing faces

Is there a third option?
As programs don t have the human capability of making conscious judgments, you could integrate the two photo moderation processes. Avail of an application that can report posts that don t pass your website’s standards and have a team of moderators check the reported submissions, engage with your community, and implement posting guidelines. This way, you get the automated moderation’s best features for efficiency and manual moderation’s mindful judgment.
