Image guidelines - downsampling[edit]

Hello. There have been many inconsistencies regarding the evaluation of images in Commons, mainly on the issue of resolution and sharpness. I think we should agree upon a uniform policy, and try to reach a consensus. I started a new discussion on the matter of downsampling, if you would like to share your view. Thank you.

Uma pergunta[edit]

O motivo da pergunta é que eu teria promovido a sua imagem da aranha. O problema é que não sei se é necessária uma descrição científica completa (não "sp."). Posso eu promove-la? Para mim a imagem é muito boa. --Miguel Bugallo 14:54, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Vou promove-la. Deus e os usuários dirão--Miguel Bugallo 14:55, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

2012[edit]

Hi Joaquim,

I don't support ur images but I drop you a word to start 2012 in a good way. OK that's not appropriate a joke. That said I hope you didn't find my comment too harsh (went over it afterwards and that's what I thought on a second run). Hope you enjoyed the end of year celebrations with the people you cherish. May 2012 bring you happiness, good moments with your family and friends and, why not, a lot of FP ;) - Benh (talk) 20:39, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Hi Benh,

Une bonne année pour toi aussi, avec toutes les belles choses que la vie nous offre: le vin, les fromages, les Nikons, etc... Peut-être je dois profiter de ta bonne humeur pour tenter une ou deux photos à FPC!... Serious now, may this starting year bring you all the success and joy for you and your loved ones.

Just wondering[edit]

You have lots of helpful criticism in the Featured picture candidates, and I appreciate that you take the time, but when was the last time you voted Symbol support vote.svg Support on one of them? Thanks, Pteronura brasiliensis (talk) 14:36, 19 January 2012 (UTC).

  • Nice to have a Brazilian otter at my door, thanks! It is true that I'm no longer very active in FPC. But I remember having supported (at least) two nominations recently: one by our winter pano specialist, with a headless boy in a beach; and another of an interesting and almost abstract minimalist composition by Dschwen. I went through the FPC list today and agree there are at least a couple of pictures worth of the FP status. But I don't think you really need my vote to add to the already long stack of supports! The truth is the longer you stay in FPC (and I've been around for some time now) the hardest it is to feel amazed. Maybe my criticism is indeed more helpful than my support? Alvesgaspar (talk) 09:30, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
I understand that, but when a picture appeals to me a lot, even if it does have stacked votes, I vote to show my appreciation. Pteronura brasiliensis (talk) 14:36, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

  • But that wasn't a 'coup de foudre' at all, just the honest and calm expression of an opinion. I agree that my vote wasn't particularly helpful (especially for the nominator's ego), but that's what happens when the reason for opposing (or supporting) is subjective. Some say 'no wow', I prefer to use other equally empty expressions like 'no magic' or 'little excitment'. Yes, I'm aware that my vote has spoiled a long and beautiful stack of green symbols. So what? Should that be a reason for not opposing? I really don't think so. I wonder why people give so much importance to the way I vote as if I were more or less than any other user.

FYI: Used your media file[edit]

This is a courtesy note. One of your media files is featured in a new commercial eBook in Apple’s iBooks store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/dr.-kemps-kids-love-bugs/id497852225?mt=11

I’ve contributed images to Wikipedia for over seven years now (including several POTD and Featured Images) and I designed the WikiSpecies logo. I respect your work here and the CC-BY-SA license we all labor under.

I know commercializing Wikipedia work is tricky and so I’ve taken great pains to follow your CC-BY-SA license requirements. I also plan to donate 10% of my proceeds to the Wikimedia Foundation directly. This is the very first self-published e-book created with Apple’s new tools and sold in the store.

I’ve given your file a credit line in the “Image and Video Credits” section starting at page 24 as required here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Text_of_Creative_Commons_Attribution-ShareAlike_3.0_Unported_License

This compilation features many of the finest Wikipedia media files in their exact form and not as derivative works. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verbatim_copying_under_the_GFDL#Making_verbatim_copies_of_images

If I did alter your work -- such as cutting out an insect part or adding a video sound track -- I shared a Share Alike version of the new media in a DRM-free format and listed the web address in the credits section.

Thank you very much for uploading your work to Wikipedia and releasing it for the world to use in enriching educational formats.

Help with an annoying anonymous little...[edit]

...Let's just get to the point, shall we? I do need your help, Alvesgespar. The anonymous user: User:121.1.45.2 has been saying quite libelous and defamatory things to my Commons:Requests for comment page. Seriously, we're talking about a convicted sock puppet here from Wikipedia. Then I have this person who I have tracked to the PHILIPPINES, MANILA, QUEZON CITY saying unnecessary things which could be seen as a personal attack. See here and here.


Said:[edit]

Neutral Party Spectator I must say, I shall give TrebleSeven my vote, for charm, humor and the "love" I could sense behind those lines. I believe he already has learned his lessons and he won't continue to be "disruptive" after this. Maybe he will keep-up his charm.

"wah wah" that and "wah wah" this[edit]

hahahahaha

I believe you must be profoundly "mellow" and funny.

This is obviously sarcasm, there's no way he supports me and finds me funny. He's just trying to provoke me. What exactly should I do about this? TrebleSeven (talk) 19:35, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure whether you are amused or distressed with the situation... Also, I wonder why you are knocking at my door: I'm not an administrator and don't have any special powers or awareness for solving this kind of conflict (some would say on the contrary...). If you really want to investigate if this user is hiding behind an anonymous IP address, maybe you should present your case to Commons:Requests for checkuser. However I would advise you to think it over first and make sure that you don't have anything to hide yourself. Best wishes, Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:26, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Sharpening fringing[edit]

Hi Alvesgaspar

Thanks for your comment on http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Common_Lime_Butterfly_Papilio_demoleus_by_Kadavoor.JPG on the FIC page. I'm very new to photo editing; just learning the terms. I did some noise removal and sharpening (using NeatImage because I don't know Photoshop)after getting some comments in my previous image and noticed a lot of damage that this sharpening create. Whether I should avoid sharpening and only perform noise removal or I have to use other methods for sharpening?

Alternately I'm happy if somebody know post processing well are ready to help me (us because these works are common to all) :)

Regards, -- Jkadavoor (talk) 05:44, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi,Jkadavoor

Please continue to submit your excellent photos, your nominations have improved dramatically in the last weeks. As for sharpening, and other image manipulations, we should use it with parsimony because they destroy the original information. White fringing around the edges is a common subproduct of sharpening. Sometimes it can be avoided, or minimized, but often it has to be corrected afterwards. It can be done by hand cloning (the only way I know) or by using some tool. I don't think that the expensive Photoshop application is needed (I don't have it myself), there are cheaper solution (some of them free). You will find other users in FPC much more competent than me and ready to help with your photos. But the best way is to buy a fishing cane and learn how to fish... Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:16, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks so much for your encouraging words. -- Jkadavoor (talk) 05:50, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
