File:Betula pubescens Ljungdalen August 2011.jpg[edit]

Request: When I nominated the image for QI, I received the following comment: The white fringes probably strengthened by sharpening could be fixed in photoshop (if you just have). Using some darkening brush with the sky color would most probably do the trick. I dont have photoshop, and I do not know how I can fix it. Ankara (talk) 12:01, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): The sky is already rather dark on a CRT monitor with proper gamma adjustment. If anything, I'd increase the brightness slightly.

Remove ruler in image[edit]

(images moved to bottom)

I took this picture of a heron and fish jumping. I tilted the camera approximately 39.483 degrees. Does it look okay as it is, or should the rotation be fixed somehow? One method I tried already is rotating the whole image layer and then filling in the blank areas with white. Others I have thought of are an oval crop and rotate, possibly with feathered edges and different fill in textures for the background. I could also copy/paste water, tree, and rock sections to fill in the gaps after rotating. I can probably do it myself in GIMP, but I would just like opinions on how it would look best.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:25, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

How about this? Rotated, cropped boldly and copy/pasted water roughly. You can copy/paste water more elaborately. ―― Phoenix7777 (talk) 00:04, 9 April 2012 (UTC)
Considering the educational purpose of wikimedia commons, pictures should be rectangled in almost every case. (Filling the whole resolution of the canvas with image content.

Question about distortion[edit]

Request: See how photos one and two show a distorted tower? In reality it's a straight and narrow tower (see photo three or Category:Largs Pencil). Is it possible to make the tower appear straight? I'd like a nice quality picture of the tower for an article I'm working on, but the only pictures that show the tower straight are from far away, and aren't all that great quality wise. What is the term for this optical illusion? Is there a GIMP-plugin that tackles instances like this (or some other free software)? Would a straightened picture look any good, or is it better to just leave them be and get a photo taken farther back?--Brianann MacAmhlaidh (talk) 10:03, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

The technical term for this is "perspective distortion". If in the future you want to try it yourself, here is a GIMP tutorial--Vera (talk) 12:27, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

There is the {{MakePanorama}} template for requests like these btw. Also, when uploading a lot of pictures, I recommend using Commons:Commonist. When I went through your uploads I also created File:McDonald Road library, Edinburgh-006.jpg. Hugin is an open source stitch program you could use yourself.

Request: I've visited, and photographed the library on two occasions. Amongst the 31 uploaded photos are several consecutive sets to - hopefully - be converted.

I'd also welcome any advice/tips on how best to take photos for use as panorama source material; Are there tricks to 'get round' pesky things like parked cars when photographing from accross the street, or ways to move further up the street before taking a second shot? That's why I've popped the whole lot here for someone to play around with. --Brian McNeil / talk 08:46, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):Please don't dump an assignment like this, try to be more specific. There are images in these batch that obviously can't be used for merging, like the first. Or details like the close ups of windows. When making panorama shots, all photo's to be merged should have been taken from the same stand point. Otherwise you get a really unnatural looking end result. I've sorted them in groups now. These templates actually belong on the file pages itself. --Vera (talk) 15:15, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

The superseded template appears to be missing from the original at the moment. Pearts (talk) 01:20, 23 February 2011 (UTC)
1. The "folding marks" aren't folding marks at all. This type of pocket map consists of rectangular tiles of printed paper glued onto a linen cloth backing. Gaps are deliberately left between the tiles to facilitate folding. Unfortunately, the tiles in this example don't line up very well. Because of the labor-intensive nature of such maps, they are rarely, if ever, produced nowadays. Theoretically, it may be possible to digitally cut the tiles out into a collection of 36 images and try to assemble them without gaps, assuming the printer cut the tiles correctly and no information is missing. If cutting was inaccurate, gaps will still be there in the final version. (The original map was presumably printed as a single sheet, cut into tiles with a sharp blade, then glued onto the linen backing.)
2. The map has been defaced with pencil and pen markings. Are they historically important for Wikipedia purposes? Should they be left in or should they be retouched-out? They may only be there because this was the best or only surviving example of this map at the time Cartography Associates ( scanned the original.
3. The paper is very yellowed, especially along the edges of tiles. This means that the printed colors have probably also shifted over time. Should attempts be made to reverse aging, or should the image be left with its "vintage look"? At the very least, the mottled appearance of the aged paper significantly increases file size and replacing unprinted areas with a uniform, single color can significantly reduce the file size if RLL compression is used in the file.
4. If you just need a map of political boundaries in South America in 1914, would it not be better to use this map as the basis for tracing an all-new, simplified SVG rendering with 90% of the details taken out, so it uses less storage space and can be displayed quickly? As it is, the map is excessively detailed and the file size is huge, even by Wikimedia standards: It takes several minutes to download on my broadband connection and several more minutes for a fast (3 GHz) AMD Athlon processor with 1 GB of RAM and hardware-accelerated video card to render the image. Most people will never see the image in full resolution due to Internet connection speed, hardware limitations, or simply lack of patience. It may be better to use a simpler graphic on Wikimedia and just provide an external link to the David Rumsey Map Collection site. The David Rumsey Map Collection uses specialized software that Wikimedia and the various Wikipedias will probably never have, making the experience here aggravating, not enlightening.
5. If editing with GIMP, the intermediate format of choice is GIMP's native XCF format, not PNG, as it uses lossless compression, produces reasonably small files on disk, supports 24-bit color, transparency and layers, and loads faster. The original DjVu file can be converted to uncompressed TIFF on Linux systems with DjView4, slurped into GIMP, then saved as XCF while work progresses.
6. Uploading the file in DjVu format to begin with, then reverting Richardprins' marking of that file as "superseded" after the JPEG version was made available seems to amount to a contest of wills. Sure, Wikimedia supports the DjVu format, but many operating systems and browsers don't (mine certainly doesn't), unless the user knows how to install special viewers and plug-ins; most Wikimedia and Wikipedia visitors don't know how and/or can't be bothered.
7. For a full clean-up, restoration or simplified derivative work, this image should probably be submitted at the Commons Map Workshop. —Quicksilver@ 19:39, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Request: Is it possible to use the images for focus stacking? Could you please help making a clean panorama? Yann (talk) 09:20, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

They can be stacked, I got artefacts on the first run of the first half, I'll have to do some amount of manual work, and so I'd like to know which direction you'd like me to go in, do you want the design to take priority, or do you want a representation of the real-life object instead ?
That is, do you want the repairs to the artwork in real-life to be show as they are, or do you want the original artist's intentions to show instead ? Penyulap 12:21, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
I would choose the 2nd option, if a choice has to be made, i.e. the design has priority. Thanks for your help, Yann (talk) 17:56, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
It will take time working alone, although I shall do some in stages. I will outline my intent here, so that other artists can help if they want to. I'd suggest a split of the work along the lines of
  • making a good quality stencil to use repeatedly around the edges (I am doing that slowly first off)
  • making a blank marble slab upon which to place the stencil. (this is probably a good entry point for someone)
  • cleaning up the middle (I haven't examined how much work is needed there, also a good entry point)
Penyulap 22:00, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
Work has stalled, and the priority I am giving it at the moment is too low while I have other work. I'd be happy to guide anyone in learning the skills required to do this work. Penyulap 15:56, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
A good place to transfer this work would be to the German lab, they have plenty of helpers there with the skills needed and a lighter workload, how do you feel about that idea ? Penyulap 02:25, 21 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes sure. Please do it. I don't speak German, so I won't do it myself. Yann (talk) 05:31, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Request: Hi there! I've uploaded this file for an article I am working on about Simon for the English Wikipedia. I was wondering if anyone would be to improve the picture for me, or perhaps make another version of the picture, by clearing the image of the other blue/grey painting (not Simon's) that is visible behind the artist? I have also asked this question at the Wikipedia Graphic Lab. Thank you! --Loriski (talk) 23:17, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

the nonchalant artist, 'my work is the important thing, and it speaks for itself' well, if he is still alive, if you are the one who took the picture, you can get him to pose properly and put the painting on proper display if you emphasise that you are a portrait artist and his scruffiness reflects upon you. Then they pose better out of respect for you, rather than refusing to pose out of disdain for focus on the look of the artist, rather than his work. But I don't know who took it or if he is alive, but it's good to keep in mind for next time either way. I don't know how well you want the edges done, I've done some work with his hair and clothes, let me know how important it is, or if it is ok as is. Penyulap

Simple crop[edit]

Request: Could you please crop this a bit? Besides the billboard itself, I'd like some pixels from the surrounding building, and I'd like a little bit of the parking lot as well, so it would help if you left in the entirety of the pole that supports the billboard. See here for an approximation of what I'm meaning: I'd appreciate it being cropped to the area within the box that I drew with the annotation feature. Nyttend (talk) 03:39, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm, it seems good old hugin is not behaving itself and I am no good at stiching pictures if not in automatic mode so I may accept your kind offer. I was wondering: is there a place/way to upload the images that make up the tinpanum so that you can have a try at putting it in place? I was thinking whether you could try to make a version of the archivolts only (similar to the one you already made but removing the part of the tinpanum (I am thinking it could be used in any article on archivolts or architectural elements) and another one showing both archivolts and tinpanum (with the extra images I would upload). Let me know if it would be ok or if it would be too much work, I do not want to be a bother...--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 16:53, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
Just upload it as a new file. I can delete it afterwards. I'll give it a try to remove the tinpanum. cheers, Amada44  talk to me 15:56, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
In the end I think there is no need to delete them afterwards as they may useful pictures after all. The ones you could use to fill in the missing bit of the tympanum are [5], [6], [7], [8], [9] and the one taken at a time closest to the ones for the archivolts (and possibly from the most similar angle) is [10]. You could also use [11] and [12]. Not sure if there may be some missing part of the puzzle. If there is, let me know and I will see if I may have it too.

✓ Done Okay. It's done. --Hic et nunc (talk) 15:35, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Actually could you make them more compact like the original there is a lot of white space outside the oval.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 09:03, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
That's no problem. I'll do it next week, I think.--Hic et nunc (talk) 10:30, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, now I reduced the grey space but left a bit. I think that a complete removal wouldn't be good. But if you wish cropbot could do it too.--Hic et nunc (talk) 11:48, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
Do you have grey backgrounds on some of these or are they white I can't tell?--KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:57, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
It's light grey as the background of the boxes in galleries and image boxes.--Hic et nunc (talk) 08:03, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

City of Virginia Beach Seal[edit]


The first image, Hanukkah Lamp, has already been fixed. See above for the request. It was totally black. Now only 418x600 is black but that isn't used so it doesn't matter.

I've now found another image, City of Virginia Beach Seal, which is also totally black. The full size image is OK. It is only the resized image. I suspect this is something wrong with the image conversion program which makes the smaller images from the uploaded image. Maybe someone should investigate to find the bug. But since it does not happen very often it may be easier just to leave it and reconvert any faulty images as they are found.

p.s. What does the second image look like on your computer? It could be that some computers display the image OK and some don't.

--QuentinUK (talk) 15:04, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

I think the second one is an instance of Category:Bug 24854 fixed temporarily and the first one can be fixed using double revert (revert the file twice to clear the cache (action=purge wont work)). --McZusatz (talk) 15:57, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

You lost a lot of detail in the background (it is too bright) but the car looks good. Fortunately my previous try was too dark in the region of the car and the background was fine. Therefore I merge the two results into one file. . Should be ok, I think. --McZusatz (talk) 13:55, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
I think that the result is pretty good, as the car is in the shadow and the background in full sunlight. Yann (talk) 08:22, 24 December 2012 (UTC)
I tried again and hope the result is a bit better because the colours are more natural.--Hic et nunc (talk) 11:17, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, maybe the colors are better, but the image looks overexposed again and the contrast is bit too sharp I think. --McZusatz (talk) 13:38, 28 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I reduced the contrast a bit and tried to reduce the overxposure effect. But Yann already wrote that the car stood in the shado
