How long do you spend editing pictures? Sets? The whole picture?
Scoring?
Pose combining, drawing hair, drawing clothes?

Not the most creative thread, but it is intresting to know! :D
For me...
Sets: 15-60 minutes
Editing: 2-7+ hours
The whole picture (including posing, clothes, makeup, etc.): 5-10+ hours
Scoring: I'm going to leave this one blank for a quite obvious reason
Pose combining: 30-60+ minutes
Drawing hair: I have NO idea.
Drawing clothes: 2-5+ hours

What about YOU?

Don't hesitate to post! :cheer:

I can spend anything from five minutes to an hour looking on the internet for a picture for my inspiration, or I can just get an idea in my head straight away.

When I have got an idea, I spend a while looking for CC that will fit the picture. When I make my mind up about which picture I am doing, I usually know straight away which pose I am going to use.

I download a selection of outfits and hair and then go into Create a Sim and try them out, it usually only takes me about 20 minutes to dress my Sim fully (inlcuding hair & Make up).

Depending on what picture I am doing, it can take between 10 minutes and two hours to set up my picture. On estimate, I would say the average time is about an hour and a half. I often change things around, and keep adding or taking away things. Doing the lighting, changing the lighting colour.

But when it comes to actually taking my picture, I nearly always get the picture I need in one shot.

Because a lot of the competitions I am in are Minimal-Editing, I only ever slightly edit them. I sometimes brighten or darken them very slightly, but that is all. But it still takes me quite a while, even for the tiny amount that I do.
But sometimes I do love editing my pictures, if they are for my Tumblr or a competition that requires editing. I can spend 2-3 hours editing them, and I think editing my personal pictures is the best part of the whole picture process for me. But I am not very skilled at editing, I do not know how to draw hair or add backgrounds different than what they are already on. I simply rely on Piknik.

I am actually a judge on one of my friend's competitions, but I only have to rank ten pictures from best to worst. I am glad I don't have to make comments on them, but sometimes I can still spend a lot of time scoring.
I hope to try judging properly at some point, when I have improved my own pictures.

This was a very long answer haha.

Hmm it depends. Some times I cheat and do things kind of half assed LOL. But I'd say the normal picture all together might take 2-4hrs. When it comes to the in game part I'm very spazy since I want to get to the editing part, since that's my favorite part of the whole process. But I like having in game backgrounds.

Sets: I try to only be like 15min LOL
Editing: 2-6+ hours (depending on how many sims, if I have to pose combine for all, etc)
The whole picture (including posing, clothes, makeup, etc.): 2-6+ hours
Scoring: I love to give big helpful comments so I'll say 8-10min per comment
Pose combining: 10min
Drawing hair:10-20min (depends how many times I redo it LOL)
Drawing clothes: 15min-1hr (depends on details)

I usually take 20-30 minutes building the set. Though sometimes, I only spend 10 minutes if it doesn't need lots of detail.
About 15-25 minutes posing and dressing my model(s).
I do touch ups, such as lighting, or sharpening. Sometimes I fix hair or objects that are clipping each other.
Or in some pics, I add sparkles. :D
Probably about a half hour editing, then.

Probably on the whole picture..I can take anywhere from an hour to 4 hours. It really just depends on how much work I want to put into it.

Depends on the competition, the simpler ones are a lot quicker than more complicated ones. As a general rule:

Sets: 10 - 45 minutes
Editing -
Minor touchups: 10 - 15 minutes
Full-blown editing: 1 - 5 hours
Hair drawing: I rarely do this on competition pictures, but when practising, it takes me about 2 hours to do a full hair.

I ususally spend about 15 minutes on set.

5-10 dressing/ styling sims

15-20 minutes deciding on a pose/taking pics

(touch up edit) 10-15 minutes

(Big edit, such as hair drawing and other things) 45mins-5 hours

Scoring takes me about 10 minutes each, I like to be sincere and fair.

That's about it, I try not to stress out though so I take 30 minute breaks every hour and a half or so. :D

Well I've never really timed myself, but I'm sure these are close.

Sets: 20 min
Editing: 45 min
The whole picture (including posing, clothes, makeup, etc.): 60 min
Scoring: depends on how big the competition is but one picture will take me about 10 min?
Pose combining: 5 min
Drawing hair: The best I've ever done at hair took like 30 min
Drawing clothes: Never really tried but I plan on trying super soon

Snagging the template!

Sets: An hour or more. I will make one, snap a few pics for reference, change it, delete it and restart, snapping more pics here and there... then I go out, look at the pics, pick which one I like, make changes, and that's usually the final. Sometimes I do this two or three times. I am soooo OCD.

Editing: Meh, 2-4 hours. Just enough to give whatever I just took that natural look. I love natural.

The whole picture (including posing, clothes, makeup, etc.): Days, sometimes. O.o I will start a sim, get burnt out, exit, and start on a different one. Then, I go back to it, get in CAS, get burnt out again, switch. But the getting burnt out is sometimes good, because when I come back to it, I can think of things that I could do better. Though, there are times I get really inspired and just fire through it within hours.

Pose combining: A good half hour. I take tons of pics during the process, which is always my final process, so this is much faster than everything else.

Drawing hair: I haven't really experimented with drawing hair. Except last night, when I attempted to draw in a part of the hair that got clipped through my model's shoulder. It looked... meh... and took me a good 45 minutes. I prefer to just enhance hair that's already there. Takes about 20 minutes for that.

Drawing clothes: I don't draw clothes, though sometimes I'll add little extras to existing clothes, i.e. beads, sparkles, whatever. Not usually longer than an hour.
