  • Non-graphist question: Interfase, assuming it is within copyright law, do you still want all of these images done? If not, this thread should be archived 30 days from now. Softlavender (talk) 13:10, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
    • Yes I want. All these images are very old and in public domain because the authors of them are unknown. I think some of them could be used in the articles about Nariman Narimanov and his son. --Interfase (talk) 16:09, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Remove smearing from a scan[edit]

Article(s)
en:Ancient Chinese wooden architecture, en:Tokyō, en:Dougong, en:Shen Kuo, en:Yingzao Fashi etc
Request
Several scans of ancient documents have a bad smear. I tried removing it by mixing channels:
  • Red: 0.2 green + blue
  • Green: 0.4 green + 0.65 blue
  • Blue: blue
as red is badly smeared, green is slightly smeared but has least noise, and blue is not smeared but has most noise. The smear is gone (as above) but there are some artifacts and the colour is not quite right. Can anyone do better? Cheers, cmglee (talk) 04:26, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

File:VGcaplet.jpg - Crop image and censor content on device's display to fix copyvios[edit]

Article(s)
en:Pelican VG Pocket
Request
This image appears to have copyright issues in its current form. To resolve the issues, the following adjustments should be made:
1. Losslessly crop the image so that the imagery on the depicted packaging is de minimis.
2. Blur or otherwise censor the content (particularly the "SPACE INVADERS" graphics) on the display of the depicted device. Ideally, this would be done losslessly. (Another option might be to save the retouched image as a PNG file, however, there might be issues with indicating that the PNG version has replaced the JPEG version.)

I am a bit unclear on what you want done here. If the collage needs to be deleted because of copyrighted images, you should nominate it for deletion. BMacZero (talk) 15:56, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
@BMacZero: The collage doesn't need to be deleted. The collage can omit ones that are deleted and then become larger without the deleted images. --George Ho (talk) 00:29, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

The requester leaves at least the decision on the last point to the graphist. Indeed, this is overly generous, but I'm missing one of the magic words.

Reminder to use the {{section resolved|1=~~~~}} code when a thread is resolved[edit]

The code {{section resolved|1=~~~~}} must be used to force the bot to auto-archive the thread in 30 days. The code is easily visible at the bottom of each thread in the editing window (commented out until it is desired). If only the "Done" code is used, the thread will not get auto-archived. Please remember this so this page doesn't get filled with nearly 50 threads as it has in the past. Thank you! Softlavender (talk) 07:41, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

This panorama was stitched together from images that were taken with a polarizing filter - the panorama is light in the left and gets dark towards right (= luminance ?) - this is the effect of the polarizer. If someone could remove the effect of the polarizer and normalize the luminance across the horizontal line that would be great. Thanks! --Kozuch (talk) 12:53, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

  • The kink through the eyes is irreparable. Therefore, the other kinks also remain unprocessed. Another problem I see is that the original uploader denotes the file as own work. MagentaGreen (talk) 14:14, 16 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Hello, could you tell if the marks on the forehead are personal marks or from picture damage? Dianakc (talk) 16:41, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
Hi @Dianakc, I can't judge whether the stains on the forehead are of the person or caused by damage to the image. In total the quality is just too poor to make such statement. The low image quality is also the reason why I have deliberately avoided further reconstructions. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 21:36, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
