Brightness/contrast adjust[edit]

Yes check.svg ResolvedCanoe1967 (talk) 00:30, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Request: Can brightness/contrast be adjusted without losing detail?--Canoe1967 (talk) 10:11, 31 December 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):✓ Done I think that you can see even more details after adjusting brightness and contrast.--Hic et nunc (talk) 09:00, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you, good work. I have tried a few myself in GIMP and was wondering if there are good and bad ways to do it. I just increase brightness first, then adjust contrast. All by eye. Are there any tricks to get them almost perfect for the detail that does exist?--Canoe1967 (talk) 00:30, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Often it's better to increase gamme a bit at first. Then you see sometimes details in the black parts. And then you can improve contrast. But too much contrast cuts details.--Hic et nunc (talk) 11:31, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the advice. I may try it on my own again next time.--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:29, 3 January 2013 (UTC)

Crosley Field photos[edit]

Yes check.svg ResolvedHic et nunc (talk)

Request: If possible, please remove scratches and fix coloration in color photos, which looks a bit overly green in each image. In B&W shot, lessening the brightness to make the light towers and field a little more visible would be great. Thanks! Delaywaves talk contribs 19:47, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

I adjusted color balance in all the images. —Quibik (talk) 00:04, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Thanks a lot! But if possible, could you reduce the saturation a tiny bit on "File:Crosley Field infield and LF 1946.jpg" and "File:Crosley Field left-center and scoreboard.jpg"? They just look a little too dark. The others are perfect, though. Thanks again. Delaywaves talk contribs 05:16, 17 August 2011 (UTC) ✓ Done decreased saturation a bit on the two photos as requested Warfieldian (talk) 03:26, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

OK, so, I did the 5th one a while back. And started on the last one. But these pictures are a ton of work, like a full days worth each. I know this archive should be independent from Wikipedia, but I don't see them being used. Maybe my standards are too high. Should I archive this puppy? --Vera (talk) 16:57, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I'll try to improve a bit more, time after time.--Hic et nunc (talk) 16:11, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

Request: Can these two images be improved ? The first one in particular has a terrible amount of noise. Thanks... --Bomazi (talk) 07:58, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):✓ Done Both images are unsharp and seems to consist of noise only. I reduced the noise in both images. But, sorry, it is not possible to make good images out of them.--Hic et nunc (talk) 12:10, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

A rather spectacular shot that could use a few touchups[edit]

Yes check.svg ResolvedCanoe1967 (talk) 15:43, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Featured! Thanks for all of your help.

Request: De-noise and white balance were both brought up before withdrawn from FP nomination.--Canoe1967 (talk) 20:38, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

He had the rare opportunity to literally at the top of the crossroads of the world, and used it to take a very elusive image. Even more spectacular is the fact that he also gave it free license too. Personally, I think this could make a good featured image candidate (probably on December 31, 2013 if you want to be festive), but something about it doesn't quite feel right (well, the curvature, though I'm not sure if it's supposed to be like that or not. I'm not saying anything's wrong with it, I'm just wanting to see if we can make it even better. ViperSnake151 (talk) 01:38, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
You may wish to put it up for featured and have those critics critique it for changes they can see. Keep the original of course, and upload any mods as new files. After a quick glance, I can see some wishing to remove the feet and others wanting to keep them in. A 180 deg. rotate may have an interesting effect as well, with the feet at the top to cause even more vertigo looking at it.--Canoe1967 (talk) 05:38, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
The curvature is normal for the 15mm lens that was used. I think most film lenses below 50mm are termed 'wide angle' have the same effect. I think below 20-25mm they are termed 'fish-eye lenses'. Digital cameras can vary depending on the 'crop factor' of the sensor. I think this is the ratio of image to focal plane compared to 35mm film cameras. I may be wrong and others may correct me.--Canoe1967 (talk) 17:24, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Featured image discussion seems to suggest that the white balance needs to be tweaked, and it needs a denoising. ViperSnake151 (talk) 03:53, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
You may wish to withdraw it until these wonderous workers of miracles can do the work on it. As you see from the vote count it will probably fail in its current state. This will allow you to enter it again and those oppose votes may not happen.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:15, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
Okay, I reduced noise and chromatic aberration. White balancing did lead to minor changes only.--Hic et nunc (talk) 11:54, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
Great work! It is back in FP again with 4 support and 0 oppose. This section can probably be closed after it passes. ViperSnake151 is the one who actually entered it here and there so he may wish to tick it as resolved.--Canoe1967 (talk) 14:09, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Losing 5 to 2 now. Anyone want to help support it after all the effort done? It needs at least 7 support and a 2/3 majority.--Canoe1967 (talk) 22:38, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Request: While the subject of the image is on a steep hill, this view is slightly skewed. Can it be cropped so that it is straight? The windows of the closest dorm should be able to serve as a guide, since the floor is (obviously) flat. --– Philosopher Let us reason together. 12:47, 21 January 2013 (UTC)

No, it wasn't like that, I take the work seriously, (unusual for me :) eh?) the internet is causing trouble, or commons, or both. This is often the way with large files for me. Battling the commons wozzard is often harder than making the image itself.
I do have the images, different techniques for making them selected parts lighter, but I cannot send them easily. Penyulap 09:36, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks AridV Ezarateesteban 00:23, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
Well now we have four versions, none of which are very good (except the first). At least the fourth addresses the camera tilt... even if the coloring is rather horrid. Why not simply brighten the first a smidgen, fix the tilt and be done with it? Why these other light and dark versions littered about? Seems a wasteful exercise. – JBarta (talk) 00:46, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

The purpose of HDR is to photograph a scene with high dynamic range (hence the name) that cannot otherwise be captured by a single image, and then reduce its dynamic range to produce a final image. This scene, having low dynamic range, would have been better photographed using ETTR in order to maximize the data. Also, if you do take bracketed photos with the intention of creating a HDR I'd recommend loading them as a single image, one overwriting the other. The final image can then be uploaded to the same file and this keeps everything in one place. (Unless previous versions are likely to be quickly removed, in which case I'm wrong!)

That said, I took the middle (EV0) exposure, properly exposed/developed it, removed the graffiti and cropped to a more complimentary aspect ratio. (Actually I couldn't clean the graffiti from behind the trees so I though it easier to chop the sides off!) nagualdesign (talk) 04:31, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

Before reolving this, I think there's a little housekeeping that needs done. Delete images that are not useful and any that are kept put in the "other versions" sections. Just leaving these littered about unconnected is just a mess for someone else to clean up. – JBarta (talk) 16:57, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
I think there are people who love to argue over discuss which is the only version of an image that is the correct version and the one and only image that should exist, at DR. If there are 3 different artists with three different ideas here, there will surely be more opinions on which one is the correct version elsewhere. The percentage of editors who are artists is small. The number of editors is large. The number who like to argue is nefarious. Ten articles, ten projects, only 5 choices is not really an over-supply of choices and regardless of what happens they are on the hard drive in the database just the same. Penyulap 04:44, 19 March 2013 (UTC)
I think if a person uploaded a version of an image that is quite obviously inferior to the the one being used, then it is up to the uploader to request deletion of his own file. This idea that it's ok to have multiple unused images lying around because "hey, someone might find a use for my edit it someday" is just plain silly. If an editor cannot bring himself to delete his version, then at the very least he should make an effort to incorporate them into a category or other versions section or something rather than just making a mess and walking away from it. Creating files and uploading them is grand fun... but there's a little responsibility involved too. – JBarta (talk) 04:58, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Spot left intentionally to give you something to complain about, although curiously none of the many lens flare artifacts and other faults or the lack of rotation seemed to bother you in this version that you say you like so much. Oh well.
  • As for leveling the horizon, as this image was most likely taken from a boat I actually think having the horizon tilted slightly (0.5º CW) gives it a more realistic feel than having it at exactly 90º. Of course that's just my personal taste and thus may not meet that mysterious arbitrary standard of what is considered "acceptable" for use on WP, but I'll take my chances and hope I am not reverted as having made yet another "poor" or "inferior" edit that is unworthy of seeing the light of day beyond just this page.

Not to worry, Penyulap, the issues referred to in my comment above have nothing whatever to do with anything you did which was all completely appropriate and appreciated, and you are also absolutely correct that "the ONLY opinion that matters as I keep having to remind people, is the requester's opinion" with which I agree completely although unfortunately that is not always the case with some other editors.

If you build a garage and it's crooked, you're not going to have much luck convincing me it's just a subjective thing and a crooked garage is acceptable and all just a matter of taste.

full reconstruction by Penyulap

Request: I assume you've noticed the gigantic black rectangle in the upper right hand corner. Would it be possible for someone to get rid of it? Ed [talk] [en:majestic titan] 08:44, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by Penyulap

No problem, you no doubt know a lot more about this ship than I do, if you are able to point to any photos of that part of the ship for me, I can reconstruct it using CGI.
I've started with the easy parts, what a person's head and hat look like, I can guess some more and do a bit here and there. Maybe some ship experts can help a bit.
There is a nice picture here of the wrong end, looks like a pleasant place to sit and enjoy the sun, until they fire that gun, then a short person would get their hat blown off.
Does the MINAS GERAES have a sister ship ? it may indicate the shape of the ship. Penyulap 11:38, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Can always make it a gigantic gray rectangle. Might make it a little less obvious. – JBarta (talk) 08:55, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Can also crop, which will make the problem area smaller. – JBarta (talk) 09:12, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Cropping seemed out of the question to me because it sandwiched the crewmen against the right side of the image, but I'm not an image expert either. :-)
The relevant categories are under Category:Minas Geraes class battleship. All photos of the sister ship, Sao Paulo, are fair game along with any Minas Geraes photos that have two funnels (not one). There are also more images here and here.
Given that the boat davit and main gun seems to be farther away in this picture, it seems safe to say that this is taken from the rear port side of the ship (the other option, front starboard, is unlikely, because there would be a gigantic gun directly behind these guys, which a boat right over it). Your best bet for an image may be File:Minas Geraes coaling.jpg or this small but exact image. Ed [talk] [en:majestic titan] 12:36, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
This image shows where they are standing on the aft deck facing the bow. Two similar boxlike hatches can be seen on the deck, one in the foreground and one further back. I'd say that second one is in both photos, and that it is one of the guns that is on the right side of the picture for repair. -Pen
I agree with the camera position. I shall study those images and blueprints. ....
It looks like the ship has guns fore and aft, they look to be the same configuration fore and aft on the blueprints and photographs, but the upper deck may be different.
What about moving the text as I have (hold shift and click refresh) does that weigh into how much needs reconstruction at all ? Penyulap 12:51, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Everything should be symmetrical except for the two middle main gun turrets, which are mounted en echelon. I completely skipped over that main deck photo—it looks like that is the same place. These pictures were taken at close to the same time, so it's also safe to assume that they didn't change the gun's aim... do you think you only have to rebuild the smooth-sided barbette, part of the gun turret, and tarp(?) directly to the left of the turret? And can you copy that in from the other image, or is the change in perspective (different image locations) too much? P.S. a en:barbette is the big armored thing beneath the turret itself, which holds the guns. :-) Ed [talk] [en:majestic titan] 14:06, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Here is some more. This IS quite time consuming, but anything is possible. Penyulap 16:54, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
There, I'd say that is pretty much a reconstruction, a good backbone is there, if not job done. Penyulap 18:51, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
I gotta say, while it's attractive work, it's not historically accurate. If you flip back and forth between the images, this becomes plain. I think it's better to see no information than false information. We're supposed to be making an encyclopedia... a reliable encyclopedia. I'm not really liking this. – JBarta (talk) 20:03, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Repeat after me JBarta, Lalalalalalala :)
An image is meant the same as the text in an article, it can simply describe a subject without the need to infringe copyright, it just has to get the gist of the idea across. A line drawing showing the battleship is just fine, so CGI or whatever is a fine as an advance on that description. It's just a different medium.
If you want to argue these points further it does NOT go in the request sections it goes on the discussion page. Penyulap 20:14, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
That last is a good point. Theoretically we can create any sort of made up nonsense we wish here... just hope those editing an encyclopedia article use some discretion. And again, very pretty work. – JBarta (talk) 20:31, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Re cropping, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it. There's some room to do so. Here is a quick mockup of a cropped and edited image. The benefit is a whole lot less area to fill in... and the area you do fill in is less obvious. – JBarta (talk) 17:17, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Why don't we combine the two ideas? We know for sure that the barbette and turret will be there, but possibly not exactly where the guns are, so can we take Penyulap's restoration and crop it just to the left of the guns? Also I don't have a problem with digitally restoring missing pieces of an image; I've seen User:Durova do it many times back in the day. Ed [talk] [en:majestic titan] 18:55, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Do you mean move the heavy guns to the right, out of view, or the machinegun that is up top, or both ? We have those other images and apparently the blueprints to help position them. Penyulap 19:01, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I meant the heavy guns on the right, but if you're confident they are in the right position, then I'm fine with it. :-) Just two last requests: can we get rid of the written caption on the top, and is it possible to fix the scratches on the heavy gun turret? Thank you so much for your helpfulness. Ed [talk] [en:majestic titan] 11:43, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
It seems correct to me according to the pics and blueprints, though I did wipe off a small flat section on the front of the housing.

Penyulap, your last has a wicked green cast. While Murgatroyd49's last was a little bluish, your fix is way too much IMO. I think the final color should be closer to his. – JBarta (talk) 17:58, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Really ? I was aiming for an ominous turquoise actually. Either way, so far Murgatroyd49 seems happy enough, (Penyulap tilts head and looks over the top of their glasses like a professor) and we all know that is the only opinion that counts now don't we, hmm ?
Anyhow, i was thinking the problem was simply the cache update, I think Murgatroyd49 was looking at the original version and thought something went wrong, but it was actually just the server. I was going to leave it for a day or two and see if Murgatroyd49 said anything, and then go from there, asking or whatever. Penyulap 18:14, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): It is a transitory problem on the internet, it works sometimes but not others. Could be anything, a bug, a DDOS attack, slow server, don't know. Check if it keeps happening. Or has it happened for a while ?

When you say black, do you mean the colour black, or blank / missing ? Penyulap 18:10, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

When I go to the file page, the image looks so black that I can barely see the outlines. It almost looks like a negative. When I click on it, however, and it goes to the zoom/download view, it looks fine: the monuments are a sandstone color, on a blank white background. When I tried to place the image at en.Wikipedia, it looks black in preview, so I didn't use it. It's used for an article at fr.Wikipédia (fr:Autels tauroboliques de Lyon), where it also looks black when I visit the page. (So when I say "black", I mean that's the dominant color, with gray outlines, rather like a negative image, and I can't discern the objects very well.) Cynwolfe (talk) 20:27, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't see any problems personally with the original image, but have seen many instances of what (for lack of a better term) I call the CMYK bug. Forgive me, I may not use the correct terminology here, but when an image is saved using CMYK colors rather than RGB colors, sometimes squirrely things happen when displaying the image here. The cure is simply resaving it with RGB colors. So, I resaved it, uploaded and it should be ok now (at least it will when the servers get around to updating the image). – JBarta (talk) 20:20, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

I notice now the color of the displayed images has changed slightly. For me, the new images don't have a greenish hue. Hopefully that's a good thing rather than a bad thing. (I think it is a good thing, because when I load the original image into both GIMP and IrfanView, the image shows up without the greenish tint.) – JBarta (talk) 20:48, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Cynwolfe, I had checked the French pages at the start, as soon as you brought it up here. I expect that you'll find it is your setup, the browser most likely. If you burn an "Ubuntu live CD" (just google for one) you can quickly rule out the Internet and commons as the cause of the problem. Other things you can try is to hold Ctrl and press + to zoom in (Ctrl and 0 to reset) and uploading a screenshot. If it doesn't come out on a screenshot then it's your graphics card that is a possible suspect. Save a screenshot and look at it in an image viewer. Penyulap 21:51, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. It seems that what Jbarta did fixed the problem without my doing anything on my end. I haven't encountered a similar problem with any other images. Cynwolfe (talk) 23:44, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Ok, here is irony, I've done the obvious which is to add noise to the background texture prior to rendering. 718smiley.png
however, it's mathematically pure and should do the job as intended. While adding the image and shadow to the render, I think I improved presentation a little, is this ok ? also, I can upload shadows and background separate from the image of the artwork if you like. Penyulap 07:50, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Just a comment here... this "noise" in the background of the original image is just the texture of the background and isn't something that needs to be "fixed". Not every background needs to be smooth and groovy. Some of us like a simple non-obtrusive background that doesn't overwhelm the subject. Just sayin. – JBarta (talk) 07:19, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

It looks like corrugated card background, sorry, I have redone the next render without that look, is it the right direction otherwise though ? I can try to squeeze in some more hues, I should examine the numbers that it is producing on those grains to see how far apart in spectrum they are, and make them smaller as well.
I'm uploading a plain background now..Penyulap 08:00, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
If you must go the "smooth and groovy" background route, might I suggest the shadows be a little (lot) smaller and less pronounced? And the "shelf" a little less rounded? More like a shelf that such a piece might actually sit on and less like a waterslide. – JBarta (talk) 16:29, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

Article(s): Thailand

Request: The following request was originally posted on the help desk and I was subesequently redirected to submit here in the Graphic Lab:

I have uploaded in Commons an image of Wat Chaiwatthanaram which is a historic temple located in Ayutthaya, Thailand. This image is currently being used in the main Thailand Wikipedia page as part of the history section. I have been considering submitting the photo for the featured photo review and have been reviewing the photo submission guidelines. So far, the only adjustments I have made are two cropped versions where the top and bottom of the image have been trimmed. All other aspects of the photo are as originally created. One area of the photo that may need help is the far right structure near the edge of the photo, where some lack of focus and minor distortion is apparent. The featured photo submission pages mention that there are photo experts that may be able to review the photo for potential improvement if I make a submission to the help desk. Can someone please take a look at the photo and advise if you feel any improvements can be made. Any other opinions are welcomed.

Per the help desk's recommendation, I have uploaded the original photo at this URL:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WatChaiwatthanaram_2292_original.JPG

Examples of cropped images that have been used in the Wikipedia Thailand web page are located here:

Everything about the movie is CC-by-sa except the DVD cover. Most elements of the cover are free licence or PD. I think they just wish a DVD cover made from scratch to be legal. "Artists conception" may be needed in all captions. We could use my latest image File:Protest info image draft.png and a similar caption linking to their image page and the laws involved.

Possibly I shouldn't have used the term 'protest'. 'Information campaign' may be a less harsh term. My yellow on black my seem a little harsh as well. I have brought up similar issues at Mr. Wales' talk page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Jimbo_Wales#Wisdom_needed concerning the need for works made from scratch to replace all the fair use ones that are being deleted there and 3D sculpture images being deleted here. Technically we can't host http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Oscar_statuette.jpg over there because free licence images are available if we have one under FOP or contact the rights holders to provide official images. The WWE fans over there may fight a battle by putting the Oscar image and others up for deletion. If that happens then the issue may be noticed by far more editors. So far no one on Mr. Wales' talk page seems concerned but the WWE project is very concerned as they are losing many images for their articles.--Canoe1967 (talk) 14:06, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Oh good luck getting some sense out of that editors talkpage. I can't help, I tried asking Jimbo himself what I would think is a pretty straightforward question about some artwork he was the subject of, and I did get a response that is true, but I can't say I could make heads or tails out of it. I can see you're query there is met with nonsense but when I first opened the page, it lined up with the section below, regarding bullying destroying the project, I'll tell you now, that's a subject not worth raising because it is policy to back it up, or ignore it. I can't see how you'll get much chatter and input in public venues over there, they are all soaked in blood (Colosseum type figurative blood, not that girl who killed herself over Internet bullying type blood). You'll need to persist with the fans is all you can do I guess, or start an alternative wiki like wikialpha. That is the straightforward perfect solution, search engines find them just the same. Penyulap 14:57, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
I am hoping Mr. Wales will respond there. I used his page only because the WWE is not responding to emails from other editors. He may contact them himself or have a connection that can contact them. I changed the link in my image above to the url of an official Oscar image from the Academy site. I may put the same version in the Oscar article on April 1. They may think it is April Fool's vandalism but technically it is not. It would just provide information as to why we can't host a fair use image of the award and at the same time provide a link to an image that readers can see. Is my yellow on black the wrong choice of colours? The font size and format could be more balanced as well. Would anyone here with better skills than I like to try one? We may also wish to re-name it 'information image' as opposed to protest.--Canoe1967 (talk) 15:19, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm sure it could not be uploaded as "LadyJaneFranklin.png". I went through the Upload Wizard. Can it be renamed? A filemover can, but he might not because it's not a valid reason for renaming. You can try though. Alternatively, if you know something I don't, you are more than welcome to attempt uploading the file yourself as "LadyJaneFranklin.png" (or anything else you wish) then request my upload deleted as a duplicate. – JBarta (talk) 01:36, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

That's great. Thanks! — Cheers, JackLee talk 06:24, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

The following was moved from en:User talk:Centpacrr:

Your version of 06:11, 13 June 2013 is an improvement over your last version, but you leave/introduce odd color issues. There is purple in the ceiling and the floor, the plants are a strange blue-green and the black appliance on the floor has a significant purplish hue. At the moment I believe my version is the superior to Kevjonesin's or either of yours, but I will hold off on reverting yet again and give you a chance to make improvements. If you're going to upload additional versions, please do the courtesy of uploading a version that is at least equal in quality to what is there already. – JBarta (talk) 06:33, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

I would also point out the previously reddish-purple flowers are now grayish green. – JBarta (talk) 06:43, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

The subject of this image is Chan Chun Sing, and his face and hands in both your and Kevjonesin's versions are deeply off color and nowhere near to natural skin tone. The room and the stage on which he is speaking are clearly not being illuminated with white light, and in fact the "black appliance" on the floor is a Tango 700 multi-color stage lighting instrument which is providing some of the colored light being reflected by the plant and the rest of the room. The room is also clearly intended to be fairly dark to enable video of the subject giving the speech to be projected on a screen behind him.
You reverted my previous edit because you said it had too much of a magenta hue which I desaturated. While the plant and other things in the room are still not going to look the same in colored light as they would in white light, none of these things are the subject of the image either. There is no way that a room illuminated by colored light is going to look the same as if it were illuminated by white light not should it. The subject is the speaker, Mr. Chan, and therefore it is the color of his skin that should look correct. Also please notice that the full size awards ceremony image is also not being used anywhere in WP, but is instead just as the source of the detail of the speaker which is being used as an infobox image for the article about him.
For all of these reasons I find that the two versions I uploaded are not inferior as you say, but are in fact the superior ones because the more accurately depict what the subject of the illustration (Chan Chun Sing) looks like. The OP apparently also agrees with this because shortly after I uploaded these new versions of the images he marked the request "resolved". Centpacrr (talk) 07:27, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
As usual, instead of addressing the problem, you just spew forth assorted nonsense. I'm going to revert again to the more normally color corrected image. I have no objection to someone improving on my edit or uploading a superior version. It can be done and I welcome it. But don't upload badly done work and try to convince me it's supposed to look that way. – JBarta (talk) 07:50, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I will say this, the face color in mine can certainly be colored better (I didn't do any region-specific coloring). In that, yours may be an improvement. But let's not color the face while trashing the rest of the image. – JBarta (talk) 07:58, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
As I pointed out above a room illuminated with colored lights is not going to look the same as a room illuminated with white light and there is no way to make it look so. The subject of the image, however, is Mr. Chan. That's what people are looking at and should be made to look natural. The photograph also appears to have been taken way out of temperature (white balance) which is an additional issue. So why don't you make the rest of the picture the way you like it and when you have done so I will take care of the skin tones. Centpacrr (talk) 08:23, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
You're just assuming the room was flooded with magenta lighting. The bad color probably has more to do with the way the camera took the picture than the lighting in the room at the time. At any rate, what's most important is a natural and realistic hue to the entire shot.. and not introducing even more color issues in the process. As far as the face color, yes, mine is as the camera took it (less overall color adjustments). It's not all that bad, but some subtle color could be added. Your coloring is a little over-done in my opinion, but generally on the right track. – JBarta (talk) 08:31, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I truly don't what it takes to please you, but if you want him purple I guess that's just the way it's going to be. It's all yours now. Centpacrr (talk) 08:54, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Now you've resized the original for no particular reason. I reverted that. Your compromise on the face color is fine, but there is no need to resize the image. If you wish to resize the head crop I have little objection. Also, as I said, I thought your face coloring was overdone. I would be happy to see the face toned up a bit if you wish... but subtly. The face color should also fit into the whole image and not be reminiscient of an oompa-loompa. – JBarta (talk) 08:57, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I've contributed four versions and you've reverted them all in favor of yours with the subject having purple skin so it looks like that's the way it's going to stay. Centpacrr (talk) 09:41, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Why did you resize the original image in your last edit? Why did you not meet me halfway on the face coloring? – JBarta (talk) 10:17, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
I apparently resized the image by 12 pixels from 612x612 to 600x600 when I saved my last edit. This was inadvertent and I don't know how it happened, but 2% also seems to me to be an insignificant change and does not in any way diminish the image. I also desaturated the skin tone from my original toning and find my last version not only perfectly acceptable but even a little washed out. (Perhaps you need to check the calibration of your monitor if it looks too saturated for your taste.) As I noted above, however, I have now uploaded four different versions and you have reverted them all to your purple skin version. Since I have been unable to please you with any of them even though the OP apparently approved of my original version by marking his request resolved after I posted it (you appear to have been reverted that as well), my uploading of a fifth version seems likely to meet the same fate. So unless somebody else comes along, it looks like your purple skin tone version of Mr. Chan stands. Centpacrr (talk) 11:15, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
You don't know how the resize happened? Just an innocent accident? I feel ya... accidental resizing happens all the time ;-) Well, look on the bright side... it gives you cause to stomp your feet and say I can never be pleased. – JBarta (talk) 11:26, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Why would I or anyone intentionally resize an image by only 2%? But again, sir or madame, you have completely missed the point. As a courtesy to the OP, however, I have uploaded a larger natural skin tone "infobox" version of the image of Mr. Chan to Commons as a new separate file so that the requester has the option to pick which one he likes better. (I have not uploaded a new full size version as that image is not being used anywhere in WP so it seems unnecessary.) Hopefully this will end this latest adventure into WP omphaloskepsis. Centpacrr (talk) 11:40, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
That's a good question.... why would anyone intentionally resize the image? Only the person resizing it would know for sure. Since you seem to have given up on a compromise over the face coloring, maybe I'll give it look myself. – JBarta (talk) 11:53, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Oh, wow, I'm flattered that so much attention is being paid to this photograph. Personally, I prefer the version with the redder skin tone because it (perhaps paradoxically) looks more realistic, but I appreciate the efforts to remain true to the original photograph and the circumstances in which it was taken. I guess having two versions of the photograph is a good compromise. Thanks again all round. — Cheers, JackLee talk 12:04, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

By the way, I don't suppose you work on illustrations, do you? I've got an outstanding request over at "Commons:Graphic Lab/Illustration workshop#Coat of arms of Malaysia (1963-1965).jpg". — Cheers, JackLee talk 12:08, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
Whichever version you prefer, Jacklee, is fine with me. As the OP requester, you are the final judge of what works best for you. Both images will always be available for however you may want to use either or both. The newer version is a bit larger than the other and is perfectly square (260x260). Despite all the niggling among the editors, everyone in here is trying to do their best.

Jacklee, I made an .svg file of the coat of arms for you (using Adobe Illustrator) and uploaded it on Commons as "The_Coat_of_arms_of_Malaysia_(1963-1965).svg". For some reason just the transparent background shows up on the host page but if you click on it the image shows up in your browser. I must have done something wrong but I don't exactly what. Perhaps you can go to the page and figure it out. Centpacrr (talk) 14:00, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
  • Hey Jacklee, I also felt that some of "the red tone"—perhaps counter intuitively-gave a more natural look. Perhaps there was actually some such tones in the environment rather than it all being camera error. So I merged some of the previous versions and then did a bit of my own tweaking and uploaded it. Didn't see that this section had received more comment and been flagged "resolved" until I came back afterwards. Anyway, it's there now. --Kevjonesin (talk) 14:24, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

I would do it myself but hugin is crashing my machine since the last update. Many thanks in advance.-- Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 13:27, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks, that made it easier. I run an old monocore (Pentium 4) computer. Anything helps. If I'd really been on my game I'd have asked you to package them all as a single .zip (or .tar.gz) file and place them in file hosting somewhere (I use my Google Drive for such sometimes.

Hello again. It seems my hugin is back in business and I managed to put the pictures together. So the goal has changed somewhat. Unless someone can come up with a better version (very welcome), the version I have just uploaded would need a bit of work to make it final. The model would be this tympanum. I would be grateful if someone could remove the black background, add the small pieces that are missing from the outer archivolt and trim the edges similar to the model to keep just the tympanum, archivolts and side statues. Thanks a lot in advance!--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 20:03, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm breathing a bit of a sigh of relief. Was looking into Hugin a bit more and started to suspect that I'd bit off a learning curve. I'll do a bit of trimming for you. That's already in my skill set. :  } Have you an image taken from farther back showing more of the building in which this arch resides? I'd be curious to see the context. --Kevjonesin (talk) 21:40, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Not an expert myself, I mostly stick to the default values... You can see the full gate at its category page in Commons, there are several pictures showing it in full.

I'm sorry, Rowanwindwhistler, but I must concede defeat. My old computer just doesn't have enough under the hood to effectively edit a file of that size in GIMP.

What are your thoughts? Is that the way you'd like to see it developed? --Kevjonesin (talk) 14:55, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I think they are fine. I just added a few comments on the English wikipedia site with my point of view now. I have no preference on the version (whichever the community thinks reflects the portal best is perfect with me). I would just try to remove the bottom part with no relevant information when it comes to the decoration of the portal (as you did in your lower resolution example) if possible and if it is not too bothersome. And I would keep it big so that we can zoom in to see the details (the main goal of putting all these pictures together instead of taking just one that covered the whole portal). That's all really. Many thanks! --Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 16:17, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

  • I see what you're getting at, Penyulap. Something like what I did with Opened scallop shell-(dark bkgrnd).jpg.
Unfortunately, not applicable in this case though. Here's the composite from which work has progressed: CatedralDePalencia --Kevjonesin (talk) 01:18, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
A link to the thumb page would be better. Then I might see that. no, I was just suggesting to the uploader, that if they would like, it may be possible to fill in the rest of the picture with the stonework as it exists in real life, but fuzzier and a little darker to indicate it is not the focus of the pic. It's not even worth making unless the requester would like the idea first though.
Actually it may be a smaller size if I did it, it would need a machine with a lot of memory to do it full size, I would have to look into that a bit to do it right. Penyulap 04:37, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
A thumb is provided in the file history of ADmpanoDeLaPuertaDelObispoCatedralDePalencia.jpg. It shows the original upload by Rowanwindwhistler before cropping. As one can see, the original composite didn't include any significant amount of the surroundings. I suppose one could attempt to synthesize something from a texture sample but I suspect most attempts at such would come out looking contrived and end up distracting from the featured feature. I suppose one could pull in stuff from one of the lower resolution views which shows more of the building but it would be tricky to get the perspective, distortion, color settings to line up and one would have to blur it quite a bit to hide the pixelation. Wikipedia:Hugin (software) may shine some light on the topic as well. --Kevjonesin (talk) 08:19, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

I leave it to others to tweak the filepage info (e.g. cross link "other versions" section, etc.) and to make the further requested graphic edits. --Kevjonesin (talk) 12:44, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

like this ? if you can suggest a border, I can add something, I just don't know what style. There is some brightening to do too.

Like this ? I find it very hard to crop the left edge, because of the 'rule of thirds' or whichever one applies, her eye is like locked to the centre and it is hard to move, it's hard-wired into my bwain as a photographer. Penyulap 05:53, 13 July 2013 (UTC)

Making a flipped version to face the text rather than facing off the page is a good idea too. Penyulap 06:34, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
You know, I never really liked doing that. I realize that sometimes it's no big deal, but it just hits me as unencyclopedic... especially if there's a part in the hair or one side of the face is different than the other. Even if we don't immediately notice a difference, maybe there is one we're not seeing. All in all it's safest, simplest and most encyclopedic to present as is and just deal with the inconvienence of her being turned the wrong way. – JBarta (talk) 08:53, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

It was possible. I tried with two different programms. The results are similar.--Hic et nunc (talk) 12:08, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
I took a different approach. I basically glued the top of the tower onto the other image. I suppose at quick glance it's Ok... but don't look too close or you'll see a little perspective wierdness. – JBarta (talk) 14:06, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
Thank you both. The problem (that I also got when I tried) is that Version 1 & Version 2 show a slightly tilted tower while Jbarta's attempt shows no bending of the tower but it does show some stretching of the tower top... Just wondering but, would it be a way to either minimize the tilt or reduce the effect on the top of the tower? Maybe not, just asking in case you find it feasible (I am no good with hugin's parameters)...--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 17:18, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
I reduced the roof angles a bit. (And I didn't use Hugin... just good old fashioned digital fiddling). – JBarta (talk) 18:17, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
And I edited the version 1 again to reduce the tilted tower.--Hic et nunc (talk) 08:48, 8 August 2013 (UTC)
I think the new Version 1 is probably the one that looks more natural? I gave hugin a try again and it seemed to me the stereographic projection was the one that gave me the best panorama. However it seems it was too big and the stitching failed on my computer. If you think trying stereographic is not really worth it I think I will keep the new version one.

Picture is on a Dutch domain. (That doesn't necessarily prove anything, but it's a good place to start, and it does end up resulting in a coherent translation.) "Prinses Kaiulani, nicht der K---" in Dutch translates to "Princess Kaiulani, niece of K---" in English. I'd say the chances are pretty good that the first word is in fact "Prinses". The name is pretty clear and so is "nicht der". The only remaining mystery is who is "K---"?

Request: Dark line between the white snow and blue sky (see images note). Possible to remove?--ArildV (talk) 10:32, 7 April 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Took a shot at this by moving the sky down a couple pixels, then a slight blurring of the sky, but I'm not really liking the result. The file is so huge and I didn't want to upload my edit, but you'll find a cropped portion of it here. The dark line (actually white in some places) is likely cause by unsharp masking somewhere along the line. As far as "imperfections" go... it's a fairly minor one. – JBarta (talk) 10:30, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Crystal Clear action loopnone.png moved from vp Penyulap

Request: With photoshop elements 10, I have problems joining File:Journal de Bruxelles nr 142 1800 (414).png and File:Journal de Bruxelles nr 142 1800 (415).png to create a downsized File:Journal de Bruxelles nr 142 1800 (414, 415).png (middle white space removed). The fotomerge options seem to demand a common merge area to work. Under elements 8 it was no problem as I could manually align the two before joining. Has anyone handy solutions? I dont know if the mentioned paint solution would work with png files. (make a big empty file and paste the two files in it). Smiley.toerist (talk) 13:11, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

A much bigger ambition is to join the files File:Borinage SNCV.png, File:Hainaut centre SNCV names.png and File:Charleroi SNCV SNCB maximum extend.png or File:Borinage SNCV openstreetmap.png, File:Hainaut centre SNCV openstreetmap.png and File:Charleroi SNCV-SNCB openstreetmap background.png. They are exactly the same scale, precisely aligned and the same colour lines. They have different heights. Smiley.toerist (talk) 13:11, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Combined pp 414-415 of the text. Darkened it a little and uploaded as JPG. PNG's can be problematic on a wiki (as you can see). For this, a low compression JPG is not only completely adequate, it's a lot less trouble. – JBarta (talk) 03:17, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

I use png not jpg because jpg is unstable. I have to do a lot of manual cleaning between the letters after the initial scan. The rerendering after every edit creates a lot of noise. A clean white space doesnt remain a clean white space. One can always make a jpg version for practical use and keep the png version as master copy. Smiley.toerist (talk) 08:12, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
A clean white space will remain white for practical visual purposes, though minor (and invisible to the naked eye) artifacts may exist. This image is however not so valuable and sensitive to invisible perfections as to require a "master copy". I think a simple JPG will do the job for any concievable use. Plus there's the issue of piss poor PNG thumbnail renderings of PNG images by the wiki software if one were to rely solely on a PNG. – JBarta (talk) 08:34, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
It turns out I had saved it as a PNG before also saving it as a JPG, so I uploaded that PNG over the old.... and now it's showing up because it's been cropped slightly and has slightly less than 25M pixels. – JBarta (talk) 20:04, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

It probably can't. Wish I could find a better archive image of the newspaper. Thank you.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 03:31, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
Actually Kavebear, this is a very simple reconstruction. The pencil drawing in this image is similar to the newsprint, the same techniques would apply to this job. I've done a much larger work where the technique had to be faithfully reproduced in colour rather than just black and white, if you think of the written words in this image as the 'smudges', then you can see in the reconstruction what's been done, especially where the text is written across the ocean waves. The waves required redrawing all across the image, it was a lot more work than this image, which is trivial by comparison, and would take about 15 or 20 minutes to do, (except for the reasons outlined on the top of my talkpage). This Matelita, she wasn't a great figure of hope amongst her people was she ? Penyulap 09:03, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Article(s): en:Oscar I of Sweden, sv:Oscar I, eo:Oskaro la 1-a (Svedio), also there's a Thai article on... something (I don't know, I don't read Thai - maybe it's about Sweden, or Oscar I, or daguerreotypes?).

Request:

This photo is understandably very poor condition, and cleaning it up would probably be quite a task; however, due to its immense historic value, I think it's worth doing. Perhaps if we keep the original and add a cleaned version? --DS (talk) 14:39, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Are there any Scans with higher quality/resolution or color images? --McZusatz (talk) 16:50, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
I scanned this from a book ages ago. Maybe it can be scanned with a higher resolution, but since it's already scanned from a digitalization, it would probably be better to find a higher resolution source. /grillo (talk) 07:21, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
And obviously there's no version in colour... /grillo (talk) 07:23, 10 October 2013 (UTC)
I tried to clean it without totally destroying the character of this old daguerreotype. --Hic et nunc (talk) 14:13, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
Yes, of course the original photograph is meant to be greyscale. However I thought of a colored scan/photograph of the original. This could make cleanup easier. Do you know whether the original still exists? --McZusatz (talk) 18:14, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Color tone advice[edit]

Is there a way to get close to normal color tone with the three right images in Category:Rick Remender? We are discussing which to use for an article at w:Talk:Rick Remender. To me they are good enough now but others on the talk page may wish a third better version than the two they are looking at now. Feel free to overwrite File:Rick Remender April 2013.jpg which I did quickly in GIMP. I just slid +10 from magenta to green, in color balance, midtone only. From other images in the set I may be able to see if halide or sodium lighting was used in the arena. Although the camera used flash I think the ambient light affected the tone.--Canoe1967 (talk) 12:53, 30 July 2013 (UTC)

Rick Remender - 01.jpg
The middle file looks good for a standard article. For lighting generally, redder color spectrums are for more attractive emotional things like nights out at a restaurant. Blues are more clinical like hospital situations. The middle looks good for a general article imo fwiw.
actually, the middle for the thumb in the article, and the left one for the fans who want to adore ;) (like this, just copy the code for the best effect for the most readers) Penyulap 13:27, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
I think File:Rick Remender - 01 edit.jpg is just fine. – JBarta (talk) 13:47, 30 July 2013 (UTC)
If we find a white section in an image can we compare it to 6500K from w:Color temperature and then adjust temperature from there? The discussion seems to have died out with m:The Wrong Version in the article.--Canoe1967 (talk) 21:13, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Small request[edit]

Article(s): AK-74 rifle

Request: Could somebody correct the levels and enhance the brightness? Thanks in advance

Graphist opinion(s): Adjusted as requested. Centpacrr (talk) 20:08, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

We seem to have an edit war brewing over which edit is preferable. Others are requested to look at the two edits posted (Centpacrr's and mine) and offer their opinion. Maybe this can be resolved by consensus rather than edit warring or multiple versions. – JBarta (talk) 22:25, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

The problem is that JBarta materially altered the coloring of this image from that of the original source file located here. As the original image is the "best evidence" of the proper coloring, without proof positive to the contrary arbitrarily altering the color based on unsupported speculation is an unencyclopedic practice. Centpacrr (talk) 22:56, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Here are a whole bunch of images of similar rifles. Does that satisfy the green issue? – JBarta (talk) 23:09, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
No not to me as the wood in the two rifles in the subjet image appears to be very much lighter ("blonder") than in any of those other examples. The "best evidence" is still the original image. Centpacrr (talk) 01:32, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
Another image of a similar rifle with the same type of wood. Might even be the same rifle shown in the top of the disputed image. – JBarta (talk) 08:00, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
While I don't want to decide on the color issues Jbartas version might have, I have to say that Centpacrr's version is drastically overexposed and his modifications exceed the available dynamic range by far (resulting in unacceptable color artifacts). Sorry, Centpacrr...
If you can't agree on Jbartas version (which is more pleasing than the original subjectively) then it would be favorable to revert to the original for the time being. --Patrick87 (talk) 04:57, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
I'm happy to leave it up to User:RussianTrooper, the OP requester, as he is the one who knows what he wanted, I simply tried to meet what I understood his request to be which was limited to levels and brightness, not color. As the requester whatever he decides is fine with me. Centpacrr (talk) 18:06, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
I think the final version done by Centpacrr is just fine. Thanks for the work. However, as for Jbarta's work - it is not bad at all.. and may be could be uploaded separately --RussianTrooper (talk) 14:26, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
You know, we're supposed to be building an encyclopedia here... not running a therapy service. Doubling over backwards in a misguided attempt to be nice about an obviously problematic edit does no one any good. – JBarta (talk) 18:19, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
All I did, JBarta, was to fulfill the OP's request the way he made it. We all know that you see every request made in the Graphics Labs in "your own way" even if the requester approves (and to the exclusion of) what another editor does to meet it. Oh well, as I have said many times before there is not, as you still seem to believe, only one way to do things (i.e. your way) thus making every other version "inferior" and unacceptable. (Also thanks for another dose of your amateur psychiatry but again that is probably best kept to yourself.) Centpacrr (talk) 04:54, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

It seems as this request has been halted and no action is performed here so i suggest that it's archived.

London Portal icon[edit]

Article(s): en:Template:Portal/Images/London

Request:

The image which is currently used as the icon for en:Portal:London is too difficult to identify as Big Ben the "Elizabeth Tower" when shrunk to the size of an icon. Could a new file be made of a close-up, cropped somewhere below the clock face (possibly with a gradient effect at the bottom?) and with a transparent background?
