Image:Seattle - Minor Hospital - 1917.jpg[edit]

Example of what I'm talking about - JM

This is not particularly about cleaning up this particular image (although that would be fine). This is a more of a question about whether anyone has a technique for cleaning up an image that is distorted like this, from a combination of paper curl, taking an image at a funny angle, barrel distortion, the exigencies of having transformed the image to get it anything approaching straight, etc. Is there a tool for this? I could easily imagine laying a Bezier grid over the photo and basically telling a tool "OK, these should become the evenly spaced straight lines". The funny thing is, I built most of what's needed for a tool like that for a fluid dynamics application 20 years ago, but it was proprietary for the company I built it for. Anyone know something like that? - Jmabel ! talk 05:39, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Request: Any way to clean up curvature like this?

Graphist opinion:

  • I think the latest version of Adobe Photoshop (CS3) has something like that. Bart133 (talk) 21:47, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Not too surprising. Does anyone know a free software solution? - Jmabel ! talk 21:59, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
      • This might work. I haven't tried it, though. Bart133 (talk) 00:28, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Looks like its intent is the opposite (putting a ripple into something that starts square). - Jmabel ! talk 03:33, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
  • Not sure about any special tool to remove it, but I was able to get it pretty close by manual transformation with a warp tool. Mr.Z-man (talk) 18:13, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Article(s): Numerous articles on en:Slovenia in various Wikipedias.

Request: The border with Croatia is drawn incorrectly. It should be corrected to comply with Image:Bay-of-Piran_maritime-boundary-dispute.jpg, and Image:Slovenia-map sl.png. --Eleassar (t/p) 12:25, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

That image is straight from the CIA factbook, it should not be edited to 'correct' the border. +Hexagon1 (t) 14:44, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Article: Brown recluse spider

Request: Any way to bring out the spider in both of these pictures by color curves, brightness and contrast? These are great pictures I took myself in high res. I just dont know how to make them look good. For the first one, the spider appears too dark when the image is made smaller (as seen at the top of the article). -- Br-recluse-guy (talk) 01:37, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: I tried something, is it ok ?--SuperManu SuperMessage 09:21, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks a lot! These are much better. --Br-recluse-guy (talk) 04:21, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Er.... "diagramm"[edit]

Article(s): one on ru.wp

Request: Make it....loke like something please. -- [[ Forrester ]] 17:00, 4 October 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: I'm not familiar with the AD-AS model, but using your image as a guide and a few other websites I've come up with the above. Does this satisfy your requirements? J.smith (talk) 23:06, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

Universal edit button[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Article(s): en:Universal edit button

Request: -- I would like an scalable SVG version of this image to be created. The universal edit button is potentially a big deal for Wikis and collaborative creation of all kinds, and yet there wasn't an article on the topic til yesterday. Please poke me on en:User talk:Fish and karate if this can or can not be done. I would love this to be done quickly (as then the article and the image could go on Did You Know, and make the front page of en.Wikipedia). Thanks. Fish and karate (talk) 07:22, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: What do you think? It's not perfect, but I'm a noob at this. :) J.smith (talk) 01:44, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I think it's awesome - thank you so much! Fish and karate (talk) 08:04, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Crop my Diggins[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Article(s): w:Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park

Request: I would like the item on the bottom left hand of the image cropped out. I think cropping from the bottom would have the least impact on the overall image. Can someone crop this for me? I'm at work and I don't have access to my image editing tools at home. -- J.smith (talk) 21:24, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion: How is this, instead of crop I useed clone stamp tool to remove the object, please update the Description and Licensing.   ■ MMXXtalk  13:25, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

That looks very smooth. Well done. I think I'll nominate this edition of the image for VI. Thanks for the help! --J.smith (talk) 23:44, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
No problem.   ■ MMXXtalk  19:29, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Image:Alaska compared to Lower 48.svg[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved


Request: This image is assembled from distorted (or unequally distorted) boundaries, which makes a poor comparison; a remake would be good. -- Reisio (talk) 07:09, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Can you explain what the issue is here? This image is based on the standard SVG map of North America, used in lots of places. No boundaries were distorted beyond whatever the map projection does, and since the purpose of this image is to compare areas it does not matter that the outer Aleutians are not shown. It is unfortunate that the source map does not state what projection was used; if it's not an area-preserving projection, it's not very far off from one. (Please reply on my talk page as I am not watching this page.) 121a0012 (talk) 03:10, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

It is indeed not an area-preserving project. ¦ Reisio (talk) 05:16, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

  • I'm creating a new version using an equal-area projection. Sting (talk) 21:24, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Done, following an Albers conic equal-area projection. Sting (talk) 00:53, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
