How can I improve that?[edit]

Citrus x limonia in a black background

Request:

I just want a help to improve the quality, how can I improve this image? (white background is not a option) --Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 12:58, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

This could be an option. Please revert if not satisfied. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 14:29, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
MagentaGreen, thanks for your attention, but this became totally artificial, and created some chromatic aberrations. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 16:38, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, then I do not know what you are expecting. Could you please be a bit more precise? In addition, chromatic aberration results from a distortion due to an inaccuracy of the lens and not of the software. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 19:45, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
The question is very simple, there is a way to improve that photo?
Shoot it in a different angle, increase light, decrease light, change exposition, change aperture...
Balance in more warm/cold colour, put more vibrancy...
Ore it's ok, it's a good quality image? Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 23:52, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

And thank you for sorting out the second image :) --Cpt.a.haddock (talk) 07:00, 25 June 2015 (UTC)
@Cpt.a.haddock: I used a barcode scanner to figure out what it said. Some of the barcodes are a bit blurry so I had to pick the clearest one and do some minor editing to extract the barcode from the image so the scanner could read it. Offnfopt(talk) 10:14, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done with the CropTool. Yann (talk) 09:00, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

@Yann: I don't think you fully read the request. The request was to remove the decorations from the image because they are likely copyvio. See the deletion request you closed for more information. Offnfopt(talk) 09:43, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
Copyright on this? That's a bit stretching... Yann (talk) 10:17, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm not the one who made the suggestion since my knowledge in copyright law is almost non-existent. I'm just repeating the statements made in the deletion request and which was the whole reason for the image edit request here. If your post to the DR would have addressed the comments about possible copyvio caused by the clipart used in the image then we wouldn't be having this conversation. I just wanted to make sure you noticed the comments regarding the reason for the edit because none of those concerns have been addressed. Offnfopt(talk) 10:34, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

I recropped this from the original file, and stretched out the contrast to remove the apparent 'grey' cast. Not sure if this is sufficient for the desired use in an infobox, though... might want it altered more, so leaving it open for the moment. Revent (talk) 08:57, 19 June 2015 (UTC)
Whatever can be done to improve it thank you for your efforts.--Wehwalt (talk) 07:14, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
I've just turned on the light. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 13:30, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
@MagentaGreen: That is indeed much better, with the denoise and all. I tried to just do a quick 'minimal' job (literally just stretched the contrast). Revent (talk) 13:42, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

✓ Done - Offnfopt(talk) 05:28, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR: there are two revisions in the upload history. The first was rotated slightly because the original picture scan orientation was off a bit. The problem with the rotate is it causes a minor pixel blur. So I uploaded a second version without the rotate, but that means more had to be cropped away. If you prefer the rotated one then revert. Offnfopt(talk) 05:38, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

@Offnfopt: Reverting my statement is an insolence, You should better abstain from this!
Everyone with one eye in his head should see the troubles with the Wiki-Render-Software. PNGs are very blurry in the preview compared to JPGs. Therefore, this format should better not not be used. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 09:57, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
