This will depend on the way your back-end and your current content handling works.
We have worked hard to make the API simple and straightforward to use. You can have your first requests hit the API in 5 minutes, and can have a simple integration up and running in a few hours.
In some cases we have had users who took a few days to perform a deeper integration.
Because we handle all the content processing and analysis on our end, and because we can easily hook into existing image stores such as Amazon S3, Azure blobs, Cloud Storage or any CDN, most of the work is usually to adapt your content handling and moderation pipeline, and to define the moderation rules you want to implement.
See our Quick-start page to start submitting content to the API.
