How to start a test

Go to My Tests. (You must be logged in to see this page.)

There, look in the top left of your screen for a + New Test button.

Once you've tapped the "New Test" button, follow the steps on screen, starting with adding or selecting a photo.

Note that adding a photo is not the same as starting a test. Follow all the steps until you receive a confirmation that your test has started.

If there is no "New Test" button when you first sign up to Photofeeler, simply follow the steps on the screen.

How to resume a paused test

To unpause a test - while looking at your paused test, notice an + Add Votes button in the top right of your screen.

When you tap this button, a menu will appear. Make your selection, then you will receive confirmation that your test is active.

How to add "the one on the left" or "the one on the right"

When setting up a Social test, you're asked "How many people in this photo?" On that screen, select "Multiple." A dropdown will appear.

When setting up a Dating test, you're asked "Who is in the photo?" On that screen, it says "Multiple people" next to a check box. Check that box, and then you'll be able to say which person you are in the photo (on the left, right, or in the middle, from the photo viewer's perspective).

Testing multiple photos at once

If you're a Karma user, you're restricted to testing one photo at a time. If you've purchased Credits, however, you can test many photos at the same time.

When you have multiple tests running at the same time, Photofeeler spaces out those photos in the voting queue. This way, voters won't see pictures of the same person too frequently.

It is possible to have the same person vote on more than one of your tests, but it would be very unusual to have many of the same people voting test-to-test.

If you're worried about voters seeing more than one picture, you can test them one-at-a-time. But this is typically only a problem for a specific kind of test (e.g. if I edit my background in one photo and then show the real background in another photo, in which case seeing both photos would "give away" my deception).

How long does it take to get results?

Votes can be faster or slower depending on lots of factors, like how many and what kind of photos are currently in the queue versus which demographics are currently most represented in voting, and how many tests are getting priority via Credits. Consequentially, test speed can vary day-to-day and hour-to-hour.
