Graphic Lab workshops can now be easily translated. Your help is welcomed!
The Graphic Lab helps improve all graphical content used by Wikimedia projects stored on the Wikimedia Commons by picture retouching.
They work to improve the quality and clarity of images that are proposed to them by the community. This work most often involves extracting key elements from photos, removing distracting elements, and improving the general appearance of images. Creation and editing of drawings, diagrams and maps are also within the scope of this project if the requests are clear and the work is feasible.
For a better view of the capabilities of the Graphics Workshop, see examples of prior work.
Requests for image improvement are placed on one of the available workshops. Once on that page, you may click the "request" link located besides the workshop link. Fill in the template and save the page. This will add the request to the chosen workshop. You may also visit the workshop page and follow the manual procedures. A Wikigraphist will sign up for the work, perform the requested actions, and, after approval, replace the original image with the improved one.
All help is welcome!
