To ask questions or make a suggestions, see the talk page of the graphic lab page.

This specific page is the requests page for the Photography Workshop. Anyone can make a request for a photograph to be improved. The standard format for making a request is shown below, along with general advice, and should be followed.

Watermark removal[edit]

Article(s): Lots are used

Request
Can someone remove the watermark from all Category:Files from The Bui Brothers Flickr stream ? They are extremely annoying. Thanks.--Sinistrial (talk) 18:50, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

This is not a realistic request, due to the large number of images. If you want to go through the images and add the {{watermark}} template to the images with a watermark, that will add the images to the "Images with watermarks" maintenance category. If you want to make a request for a specific image you need for a article you're working on then you can make your request (ideally should be 1-3 images), but asking us to go through 300+ images, find the ones with watermarks and edit them all is not a realistic request. I clicked through a number of the images and many aren't being used in articles. Please limit your request to images that are for use in a article or needed for a project/project tasks, etc. Offnfopt(talk) 10:05, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Chinese Exclusion Act[edit]

Request
Hello. We have a cropped and poor quality version of a political cartoon. Nevertheless, the original is available at the Library of Congress. I could import it as is, but maybe a graphic designer could restore it a bit? (the picture looks very dark). Okki (talk) 05:57, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Okki: What's wrong with just uploading one of the high resolution jpg versions, such as, https://cdn.loc.gov/service/pnp/pga/02700/02758v.jpg that looks like it does not need any work. There is an even bigger 150Mb tiff version from which you can create a very high quality (6232 × 8425 pixels) jpg. Ww2censor (talk) 10:28, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
I had the impression that we could do a better job (on colors, visible craquelure right in the middle...). Okki (talk) 10:47, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
What does better job really mean? Should it not be more accurate colourwise instead of exaggerated, in which case perhaps one should start out with one of the images that were photographed with colour patches and a grayscale: https://cdn.loc.gov/service/pnp/cph/3g00000/3g02000/3g02000/3g02045v.jpg Ww2censor (talk) 12:54, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Request
Is anyone interested in correcting the tilt in this image? It's not mine but I think a correction would be appreciated! --WhisperToMe (talk) 14:18, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: essentially what you are referring to is an optical illusion. The photo is taken at an angle to the road and building, so you get the impression the building is tilted but it is not. Look at the trees and the perpendicular parts on the left of the building and you see they are vertical though perhaps there a very slight tilt showing on the left side, maybe it is a half degree off. Personally I would not bother. Ww2censor (talk) 14:32, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Aha, I see. If it's not actually tilted then no change needed! WhisperToMe (talk) 14:57, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

✓ Done If optical illusions are something which should not be edited, then please revert back to the original photograph. Edit: Okay, i found out that perspectives can be changed in wikimedia images. — ThiruN (talk) 10:07, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

Could the strong color banding be removed? --ArildV (talk) 10:44, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
@ArildV: I assume you are exporting the file from a raw through Photoshop. Try exporting it with no noise removal in the sky, or if that's not enough, with a tiny bit of noise added to the sky and with highest jpeg quality. Noise or dithering are the way to go to prevent banding if the information is actually present in the original (as it should be here).

That median filtering was a tad too destructive here, don't you think? The eyes, hair and collar are needlessly affected from the median filter. Median filtering is definitely good here, but I recommend applying it only selectively. What I usually do in cases like this is put a copy of the non-filtered image on top of the filtered one and use the eraser on the spots that need cleaning. Make sure the top image has an alpha channel first, though, otherwise it won't work. I also recommend checking out the "repair" section of tools in G'MIC, especially the "remove hot pixels" one, if you happen to not have used them before, they're great. —Quibik (talk) 17:27, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

@KAVEBEAR, perhaps I should say thank you to you because you're so much taking care of the imaging in the WP. Above all, you are the one who asks here. So it is (unfortunately not the first time) in your place at least, to say „Thank you“ and indeed to me! Is here an completely lack of good understanding?

Photo montage[edit]

I´m refering to the recent wikipedia entry in portuguese: Políptico das Sete Dores de Maria, and at the first image in it. I think should be better the readers could have an image of the original ensemble, like the existing in the english wikipedia entry: w:Seven Sorrows Polyptych.

The sequence of pictures should be like the indicated at the first image of the article and at the Galeria (1):

Template.
Central image.

The pictures are the following: Central (indicated in blue): File:Quentin Metsys - Virgem das Dores.jpg

@GualdimG: Are you sure this is the right template? The central blue shape is rectangular, while the actual central image is slightly square. As you can see, one doesn't fit the other, so there is no way to arrange the pictures while following this pattern. --ArgonSim (talk) 16:29, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

There are a few other options linked on those pages. I'm not sure it works on any other language wikis - I tested the dewiki and it does not work there but the multiple image does work on the ptwiki.

Hi @Abutalub, in my opinion, there are two possibilities. Complete removal or weakening of the background. What do you prefer? Apart from that, I will save the file in JPEG format, which results in a sharper rendering. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 16:55, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Gikü: You can essentially achieve the same type of result on your own with the template w:template:photomontage without making a single montage image and any individual image can be changed at will. Remember that your selection of images, that very considerably in resolution, need a lot of work resizing them to a similar size to create a montage while the template I suggest can seamlessly use images of totally different resolutions. There are a few other parameter options linked on the template page. The "photomontage" template works on the rowiki, which I think is where you are most active, and I've done a test there on my ro sandbox at: ro:Utilizator:Ww2censor/sandbox. There are several parameters that can be changed and, because the images are different proportions, you may want to crop some, without having to change the resolutions, so they are more similar in size. In that case use the CropTool on commons images by adding CropTool to your page by activating it in your Preference under Gadgets. If you can work with my test just post a "section resolved" template as noted below. Ww2censor (talk) 14:31, 27 February 2017 (UTC)
