On average, how much time do you spend on a picture?

With just my regular post-processing without anything special being done to the picture, I'd say no more than 1-2 minutes. If I really think it's a great or cool picture I'll try different effects on it, but rarely do I spend more than 5 minutes on a picture.

Of course there are always exceptions; extreme acne, fixing clothing with the clone tool, etc.

Deepnds on how badly I screwed it up. I try not to for more than a few minutes, even though this one of Mally I"m trying to fix is throwing me for a loop. I'm on day 3 I think.

I usually just sharpen and adjust contrast if needed. About a minute per pic for most of my shoots I would say. There are times where it takes longer, and when I first started out it was a looooooooooooot longer than that. I find that shooting in RAW reduces my processing time.

I am with everyone else. 1-2 minutes unless I am doing something special.

For most of my shots its normally just a quick edit of levels and I'm done. So that doesn't take long. If Im trying to do anything interesting though, I take ages. Im still learing all the post-processing that you can do so I play around with tons of different settings. Then sometimes when I look at the edit the next day, I feel like starting all over!
