Reviewing Non-Photographic and Low-Quality Images

When adding new photos a quality score from 1 to 5 is created automatically. Photos with a quality score lower than 3 do not appear in Search until you approve them (unless the quality filter was disabled in Settings)

The quality score depends on the following:

  • Known date and/or GPS coordinates
  • At least 2 MP resolution if taken after 2012
  • Photo not classified as info or screenshot
  • Photo is favorite, was edited or approved

In case you do not need the review mechanism you can turn it off in Settings
