Remove watermarks[edit]

Article(s): en:Kata Tjuta

Remove watermarks from photographic images
These are all images uploaded by User:Cemendtaur snapshots from Australia, and they all have large visible watermarks. Visible enough that I noticed it when viewing an image at en: Kata Tjuta, and once I’ve noticed it it’s apparent even in thumbnail view. They look like the sort of watermarks that would be hard to be remove, which I think is intentional, so the other option would be to remove them from any articles they are in (which are not short of images) and delete them.--JohnBlackburne (talk) 05:15, 19 April 2018 (UTC)
I requested that the uploader read COM:WMD and consider overwriting their watermarked uploads with unwatermarked versions.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 05:56, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Cropping and removal/alleviation of digitization artifacts[edit]

Article(s): en:Gillette and fi:Gillette, possibly other language versions as well.

Request
I'd like these pictures of key figures of The Gillette Company to be cropped and "prettied up" as much as possible. The images have distracting artifacts (especially the one of Gillette), some of which were probably introduced by the digitization process (done by Google) and some that are just inherently there due to the photos being printed on paper. I know little of image editing so I can't even tell the names of the operations that are needed or possible for each of these images.
The images aren't of amazing quality but they're the best ones I could find. I extracted them from the downloadable .tar archive of The Gillette Blade company magazine collection, available on Archive.org.
A cropped version of the picture of Gillette already exists here and that one could be replaced with the improved version. Pictures of Nickerson and Joyce would probably be new uploads. ---- Veikk0.ma (talk) 12:48, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

@PawełMM: Sorry I meant a profile portrait like this. Since JPG is a lossy format can you recrop from the original image? Thanks. Neveselbert (talk) 21:05, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
@Neveselbert: Recropped as requested. PawełMM (talk) 05:56, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
@Neveselbert: There was no loss, CropTool crops losslessly. The original photo really is that blurry, possibly due to focus on the water glass or flowers.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 08:01, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
@Neveselbert, Jeff G.: Recropped losslessly. PawełMM (talk) 17:36, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
@PawełMM, Jeff G.: I think I'm going to have to pass on including this photograph on the list of prime ministers, the quality is quite abysmal and she isn't even facing the camera. If you could delete this image and maybe retouch File:Premier Thatcher, Bestanddeelnr 932-7045.jpg (removing the lens flair at the top) that would be great. Thanks anyway Clin Neveselbert (talk) 00:39, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Reupload the file with transparent background[edit]

Article(s): he:דגל ישראל

Request
For some reason WikiCommons cannot make this image displayed with transparent background although in any other photo viewer or editor (e.g. Photoshop) the background is transparent. See File talk:Flag-of-Israel-TB-Zachi-Evenor.png. Please fix this problem, and if possible: preserve the EXIF of the file. --MathKnight (Talk) 18:35, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
Apparently it is a bug in all Wikimedia projects, in which PNG can't display transparent background unless in original size. Developer or expert Common user may update on the situation handling and solving this bug. MathKnight (Talk) 17:17, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Chromatic aberration[edit]

Article(s): all the articles they are currently used on.

Request
Fix the chromatic aberration/purple fringing. Wikigraphist that takes this request should be aware CAs are not fixed with the clone tool. I made {{CA cleanup}} to categorize these photos in Category:Images with chromatic aberration problems, but since nobody is watching that (yet) I'm making this request for images that are currently in use. Note that the composite dive photo is cropped, so you may want to load the full photo (first revision) to fix the CA. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 10:45, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

I am updating the biography of William Blake Richmond, artist. The image of his sculpture "Greek Runner" is dark. I would like readers to see the sculpture more clearly. I would appreciate your advice or assistance with this image.
— Preceding unsigned comment added by MauraWen (talk • contribs)
✓ Done @MauraWen: but you should check your display settings. Just like the previous image (File:Tsitsi Dangarembga 2006-11.jpg) it's not that dark. Unless these minor increases in light are exactly what you want, in which case carry on.. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 19:08, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
A lightening of the sculpture and blurring of the background were added. PawełMM (talk) 05:57, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz, PawełMM: thanks and thanks! It never occurred to me to check my own display settings. I will look into that. I may be back later with two more Wm Blake Richmond portraits that I believe (right now) are too dark. Also, (and not that it matters), those two pings did not ping me. Hmm! Just happened to run across your replies. MauraWen (talk) 16:52, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
@MauraWen: yes, I think I added the ping afterwards without re-adding my signature. (Wiki doesn't send a ping without a fresh signature)
@PawełMM: impressive, but I think the statue is a bit too light now, like someone aimed a massive floodlight at it. There are also a lot of really strange things happening around the edges. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 17:14, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Article(s):William Blake Richmond upgrade (draft in my En:Wikipedia sandbox-User:MauraWen/sandbox William Blake Richmond)

Request
Please lighten and crop a bit from the bottom. I pushed my display settings to the highest brightness (per Alexis Jazz's recommendation). I still find the portrait to be too dark to include in my Wm. Blake Richmond article. When I download and edit the image myself, I am able to distinguish Morris's clothing more clearly and the details in the painting. thx MauraWen (talk) 17:05, 28 July 2018 (UTC)
