  • Symbol support vote.svg Support In my opinion, each of these pictures may be nominated as FP candidate individually. But I think it is more interesting as a set. Miniatures made between 1503 and 1508, for the Book of Hours (a book of prayers) belonging to Anne of Brittany (1477-1514), Queen consort of France. I've done some slight restoration by enhancement of colors, removing some spots, dusts and tears, add a correct black background, add a scale, and so. Please notice the very high resolution (each picture is a stitching of 247 images). In case of interest, I advice to have a look on the whole book (many other marvels to bee seen)-- Jebulon (talk) 17:27, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Wonderful set! But are you sure about the number of images in each stitch? Maybe 12, in this case? (I go often there and stitch old maps and charts; you need a lot of patience and hard work!) -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 19:58, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Thank you Joaquim. Please open one pic on the BNF website at the highest resolution available, and count the total number of 256pxX256px squares I've had to upload and stitch together, with no possibility of mistake... It appears that a "script" exists (I've heard about PERL or "Python"), but I don't undestand what it is and how it works...--Jebulon (talk) 20:14, 8 February 2013 (UTC)
      • Look for example at this case: [1]. At maximum resolution, you need to put together 12 images. But you have first to displace the navigator tool to the bottom, so you can use the whole space. Each individual image is much larger than 256x256! I use the 'print screen' key to transfer each image to the graphic application and then stitch all of them by hand. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:44, 8 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support An excellent example of a featured set. I think adding individual images under other versions will help re-users to find them while visiting any single picture. JKadavoor Jee 13:33, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg strong support Very good! But if every photo is a stitch of 247 single photos why do you upload "only" in 3.168 × 4.808 resolution? Commons should benefit from your great work. Furthermore details of your repro setting could be interesting for other photographers (which lens, which lightning, which software, which setting, ...) and could be (if you like) added in the description. Nonetheless: Thumbs up! --Tuxyso (talk) 11:23, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Thank you Tuxyso. These pictures are uploads from the Website of the French National Library. At the highest resolution, you can only upload little squares of 256px X 256px, and stitch them manually (with GIMP), very carefully, like a puzzle (or make a "screen print", and stitch too, see Alvesgaspar comments above). This was the first part of my job (very difficult). The second part was in improving each picture (cleaning, removing dust spots, correcting dirt, enhance the colors, the contrasts etc..., again with GIMP). Please have a look on the description page of one of them (no matter which), and follow the links. Then you could make the comparison between the result and the original.--Jebulon (talk) 15:08, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting info.svg Info I have reset the images in the canonical order of the Gospels in the Bible: (Matthew, then Mark, Luke, and John).--Jebulon (talk) 15:11, 13 February 2013 (UTC)
