Pictures[edit]

Hi,let's go step by step:

  1. The pic http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Kitten_green_eyes.jpg and http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Kitten_%28green_eyes%29.jpg ,from my point of view, there is nothing wrong, if you look at the category Category:Felis silvestris catus , is filled with images of cats,we should to wait opinion of others.

The file http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Highway_%28Autopista%29.jpg ,http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Autopista_Los_Libertadores.jpg ,and http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Autopista_Nororiente_%28highway%29.jpg have their own article http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autopista_Nororiente and http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autopista_Los_Libertadores,there's not reason for remove it,is a place,is not a corrupt file.

And my photo in Arabic,maybe is not encyclopedic,regards Carliitaeliza (talk) 19:53, 11 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As to the image category, some of the pics there illustrate various breeds of cat while others should clearly be tagged and removed. The Wikimedia deletion policy lists examples of situations when an image should be deleted:
"The file is not realistically useful for an educational purpose. Examples of files that are not realistically useful include:
  • Private image collections, e.g. private party photos, photos of yourself and your friends, your collection of holiday snaps and so on. There are plenty of other projects on the Internet you can use for such a purpose, such as Flickr. Such private image collections do not become educational even if displayed as a gallery on a user page on Commons or elsewhere.
  • Self-created artwork without obvious educational use."

(Commons:Deletion_policy#Not_educationally_useful)

As to motorway pics, I admit I might have tagged some of them improperly without checking their usage. I will remove the tag where used in an article. kashmiri 20:29, 11 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I thought you should know, but this user retired as a result of the above exchange. I'm not really sure what serious harm there was in having these images there, but I think it would have been better if you explained why their images were problematic, instead of essentially quoting policy. Anyways, what's done is done, I just thought you ought to know. Steven Zhang (talk) 21:44, 11 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well, are you sure that this was as a result of the above exchange and not of repeated problems with her contributions? Just check her edit history: [1] and the number of problems she run into. Her account barely got unblocked on 6 January after a year of global block (for using multiple accounts persistent vandalism) - and she already managed to receive a caution from an editor since. I kindly suggest to do a bit more of thorough research before assigning a blame. kashmiri 17:10, 12 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Well to clarify some things, :) (I took a piece of my time to respond) the subject are "photographs" if i was locked, but I did not vandalism, and I ask a little more research, the case is this: "Photographs" this does not mean that because I was blocked, my files are to be destroyed, because there is no policy that supports what you said, either to fix the problem "you mistakenly marked my photographs without checking" and this disgusted me in the sense that you did the reviews incorrectly, well if the photos remain here (is right) or not,also decide the rest of the community :) thanks for your time Carliitaeliza (talk) 17:52, 12 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I do not say your uploads were vandalism this time - I only mentioned vandalism in the context of your previous blocks. According to this and this you have been blocked twice on two wikis and once globally [2], with even further sanctions for policy violation while blocked. Yes, you have made some good contribution, no one questions that. Still, the problem has been with your continuous (mis)use of this online encyclopaedia as a social network or for own publicity. Your Wikipedia/WC user page is not meant to be your social profile, with photos of your pets, neighbourhood and your name in Arabic script. Wikimedia is not a personal image hosting server. Hence my delete tags on your pics. You perhaps recall that other editors already had to delete your personal data (home address, email address) from your Spanish user page (especially considering that you were/are a minor) - so I guess you will continue to be checked. A friendly suggestion would be to focus on meaningful and non-controversial contributions to this online Wikipedia rather than on adorning own user page. Then everyone will thank you. kashmiri 18:31, 12 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
To reopen the case, I did not use the photos as "flickr" or something to that note, just wanted to make my contributions to Commons to my user page, and nothing else, not even is my neighborhood, the cat is mine , I took a photo to a pet, as many users do this I think, as reiterated above "my intention was not to look like a Flickr gallery" was just showing my contributions I have made in Commons. Second: I have been blocked before, but that is not a "reason" or "excuse" valid for files to be removed, because a picture is of a pet, that's not a valid reason, if you misread my gallery, I I think you should have consulted or had sent me an email, and I had perfectly changed some things on my user page,have a nice day! Carliitaeliza (talk) 21:36, 12 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I will repeat it once again: please read Commons:Project_scope#File_not_legitimately_in_use. You need to understand that Commons is an educational project and NOT a hosting site. If you want a site to host your photographs, go to Yahoo Flickr, Google Picasa, Facebook, or countless other hosting sites. Apart from two photos that you linked to existing Wikipedia articles, all your remaining pictures are not being used, nor have a potential to be used, for any educational purpose - and thus should be removed as per the policy. I don't feel like discussing the policy and your actions any longer. kashmiri 00:35, 13 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"I don't feel like discussing the policy and your actions any longer." - That's probably a very good idea, Kashmiri - it seems that you shouldn't be dealing with issues like this if you are unable to keep a polite tone about your messages. You seem in the one above to be almost ordering this user to take their pictures and go somewhere else - this is far from what we wish to encourage. Refusing to discuss things anymore doesn't help, either - i'd strongly recommend that for a few weeks at least, you do some other, less stressful work on commons and stay away from deletions - if you're not prepared to discuss without resorting to losing your temper, it doesn't seem like the right line of work for you. BarkingFish (talk) 14:07, 13 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wikipedia policies have been written using language rather easy to understand. The relevant section has been linked on each image tag, quoted verbatim above and then linked again, and still the feeling is the user did not bother reading them. See her "observations" in the paragraph below: "There are thousands of other photos of cat, so mine should be there too". Kindergarten. I'm giving up. I am not going to spend more time on a couple of photos than it takes to finish this paragraph. As to your advice as to what I should do in the coming weeks, thanks for good wishes, holidays are always welcome and never enough. Still, let me continue being the lord of my time. kashmiri 23:27, 15 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
"There are thousands of other photos of cat, so mine should be there too" - And she's right. What single's carliitaeliza's image of a cat out from all the other images of a cat? If you want to go on a "Not legitimately in use" rampage, you've got one hell of a lot of images to delete. See the deletion requests you put up for Carliitaeliza's pictures - no one so far agrees that they should be deleted. There's nothing wrong with them. And if you want to be lord of your own time, use it better :) BarkingFish (talk) 00:09, 16 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
in order to avoid trouble, I'm not trying Become That my pictures in photographic gallery, Because what you said is not supported in a policy, you are trying to remove my picture, and Considering That There are Thousands of pictures of cats in Commons, well have a good day, and please try to paste a link where what you said, is supported by a policy.and try not to make the same mistakes two times, because you already made ​​a mistake with me, checking my photos as inappropriate, which are not :) Carliitaeliza (talk) 00:47, 13 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Well,after i to feel ignored,i hoped a answer and i have don't received it yet. I think, you do not understand very well, the case is "There are thousands of pictures and you just want to remove mine", that sounds weird and could be considered as a personal attack,the question is why only mine? because if someone want delete a picture and have not a good reason to do it,so well, what I think of this? personal attack? I'm wrong?,even community had voted to "keep" maybe I'm still wrong or I don't know,well have a nice day I hope solve trouble soon.Have a nice day Kashmiri! :D Carliitaeliza (talk) 12:17, 16 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

and an advice, you should be patient when we discussing about a pictures and other things related with Wikipedia and his sister projects Carliitaeliza (talk) 12:19, 16 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I routinely tag pictures for deletion when I believe they violate policies; I have tagged several dozen pics this way. If you are saying "my pictures", you clearly do not understand the concept of the Commons. Pictures here belong to everybody. Everybody can upload (within policy restrictions) and everyone has a right to propose removal. Understand the English word "common" from which Commons took its name? If you still believe these are "your" pictures, I suggest you read WP:OWN and Commons:OWN very attentively. kashmiri 10:15, 19 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

[edit]

Hi, I sourced my new version from the main site PayPal.com File:PayPal logo.svg. The look has been updated and the changes haven't trickled down to paypal-media.com. But you can easily see the new logo in the new homepage at paypal.com. I haven't re-reverted your changes yet, thought we should clarify it first. Regards, User:sagarsavla

Hi, Things seem a bit confusing. If you go to the login page at https://www.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/helpscr?cmd=_login-run you'll still see the "old" logo. Then, a document from June 2013 [3] shows both logos on the same page. However, if you look through the image history on Wikimedia you'll notice that the issue has been there for years. Personally, I would attribute the two "colour versions" to... the software (!) used at PayPal's web design department: it appears like the side effects of converting CMYK colour model to RGB which is done differently by different software (for example, I have observed that Windows Photo Viewer renders CMYK images on a RGB display very differently than, say, web browsers).
I wonder whether writing to PayPal about the issue would make sense. Regards, kashmiri 23:03, 14 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
How about if we source it from their new website: https://www.paypal-communications.com/ ? The CMYK reason seems unlikely considering that it's such an established company and since almost all displays render in RGB itself (CMYK - RGB artefacts usually crop up when making art printer compatible)
An established company - still they can't get their logo book together as evidenced by the pdf above ;) As to website - brilliant idea, will you go for an account there or prefer me to do it?
By the way, you are most likely correct as to the new colour of the logo, judging from the colour scheme of their new website... kashmiri 09:55, 15 August 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Kashmiri!
Tip: Add categories to your files
Tip: Add categories to your files

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Autosomal Recessive Dominance.[edit]

Dear Kashmiri,

As pointed out by 71.67.97.128, the image incorrectly suggested some sort of sex linkage in autosomal recessive inheritance. In fact, the probability of having a healthy/carrier/affected son or daughter is the same.

     I would like to state that this image still needs correction. The diagram somewhat still suggests some sort of sex linkage. I think  
   the correct image will be most similar to the images given in the following links.

Homozygotes & Heterozygotes.
Simple image.

Having said that, I would like to thank you for your previous correction which was necessary due to some worthless self-professed expert with no knowledge or skills of biology at all.

-Kashi Siddique.

Deletion of File:Xiaomi logo.jpg very wrong[edit]

Hello, for Commons:Deletion requests/File:Xiaomi logo.jpg, I just want to let you know that this deletion is clearly very wrong. I'm not asking for undeletion though. File:Xiaomi logo.jpg was a raster image of an early version of Xiaomi's logo (you can still find the same version in File:Xiaomi logo.svg's file history, it is the earliest version). The reasons of that deletion request are:

  • "Wrong colours and sizes": There are tons of old versions or modified versions of a logo that exist on Wikimedia Commons
  • "Not used": How can "not being used in Wikipedia" be a good reason to delete images on Commons? Images don't have to be used in Wikipedia to exist on Commons.
  • "replaced by File:Xiaomi logo.svg": So what are {{Vector version available}} and Category:Vector version available for? Should we delete all images in that category?

Clearly, the nominator's reasons don't meet any Commons:Deletion policy#Reasons for deletion and are all bad reasons, and such images clearly could exist, and do exist, on Commons. Next time, please consider reading Commons:Deletion policy#Reasons for deletion before nominating an image for deletion or performing a deletion. Thank you. --Tomchen1989 (talk) 12:00, 14 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The image was nominated as "reduntant/bad quality" (JPEG usually makes awful quality in logos, unless JPEG quality is set at 100% which is rare) and "redundant/vector version available". Both are valid reasons for deletion. — kashmīrī 12:08, 14 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Additionally, it has been 7 months since the deletion. Why bringing it up now? — kashmīrī 12:10, 14 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I believe I got the JPEG of the old version from Xiaomi's official website (normally I would upload PNG for raster image but back then I was only able to find JPEG from the official website), the equivalent SVG version (shown in File:Xiaomi logo.svg's file history) was actually converted to SVG by myself and not 100% official. JPEG isn't necessarily of bad quality. When File:Xiaomi logo.svg was updated to be the lastest version, File:Xiaomi logo.jpg might served as the sole old official version thus potentially useful thus can exist. I've just looked at the discussion, at the time of del nomination I didn't see it. --Tomchen1989 (talk) 12:47, 14 July 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, I find COM:Dupe and COM:Redundant silly and unclear, which is why I've posted Commons talk:Superseded images policy#Comments regarding COM:Dupe and COM:Redundant just now. I also agree with Commons talk:Superseded images policy#Images should never be deleted because of InstantCommons regarding the sentence "[...] make sure that the file is not in use anymore by using GlobalUsage" in Commons:Deletion policy#Reasons for deletion.

Convert to SVG[edit]

Hello Kashmiri, I need your help, can you convert File:Petrosains logo.png into an SVG File:Petrosains logo.svg. It would be great if the SVG version of Petrosains logo is available here, thank you. -Fandi89 (talk) 01:06, 26 January 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Kashmiri,

Recently you updated File:BlankMap-World-with-Circles.svg with comment "Removing universally unrecognised entities". Thank you for that!

Unfortunately there is another file which contains same mistakes and must be updated File:First_Day_of_Week_World_Map.svg. I didn't get how to update it by myself, so could you please either update or give me instructions how to do that? Here is fixed file https://www.dropbox.com/s/f5znpj04uo7kn62/First_Day_of_Week_World_Map.svg

Thank you in advance.

Stop hegemony![edit]

Let you remind me that the first retaliatory act was committed by you when I changed the Ncell logo. I am here not to show hegemony. It's an open community and anybody willing to contribute should be appreciated nor destroy work done by them. After you tag copyright violation, I have changed the sizes of SVG logo as per Wikipedia guidance. I have used the same license used by others on the same things. I have seen SVG logos you have uploaded also have the same license which I have used.

Hi Kashmiri. I noticed that you've made a malformed deletion request. When you want to delete a page by manually using the {{Delete}} template, please remember to follow the instructions in the template, including the "Click here to show further instructions" portion, otherwise you will create a lot of work for other people.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 15:44, 17 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks, and my apologies. I edit primarily on en-wiki, and there, we have automated tools to mark items for deletion. I will try to learn the manual procedures in force on the Commons. — kashmīrī 15:55, 17 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
We also have automated tools. At COM:D, you can find info about tagging for Speedy deletion with the {{Copyvio}} tag (manual for 1 file), QuickDelete (semiautomatic tagging for speedy or standard deletion for 1 file), and Mass deletion request (manual tagging for standard deletion of a mass of files), which links to VisualFileChange AKA VFC (semiautomatic tagging and other operations for 1 or more files). All but the manual methods require JavaScript, and the semiautomatic tools work better when the user is logged in and has them enabled as gadgets, including custom settings, higher limits, saving of preferences, and custom tagging.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 16:22, 17 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Uploads by Hatab Khurasani[edit]

I have reverted your speedy tags on the uploads by Hatab Khurasani, as a free license is indicated at their source e.g. https://archive.org/details/sot-204-05.19. Of course, it is valid to question whether they are an authorized representative of the copyright holder, which is best solved with dialogue rather than rash action. I've begun a conversation on their talk page; if there is no satisfactory reply, then we can start a batch DR. (As a general rule, don't nominate highly related images individually, as that wastes everyone's time. In fact, it is more cumbersome to process a large number of individual speedy deletions than a single batch DR containing all of them.) -- King of ♥ 04:29, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@King of Hearts - the Archive.org profile is obviously that of Khatab Khurasani and is NOT the actual source or author of the imagery. It goes without saying that these images have not been created by Archive.org and that CC tag added by Khurasani there is as false as here on the Commons.
All these screen grabs have been taken from videos created by the so-called Islamic State. Even if that was true, I wouldn't expect Khatab Khurasani to admit that they are an authorised representative of the group. Also I wouldn't expect the group to occupy themselves with issues like copyright – which of course doesn't mean that copyright laws don't apply to them.
As to nominations, I'll keep it in mind – do you know of any handy script by the way? For now, the Quick Delete makes individual nominations a breeze. — kashmīrī 14:21, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Turn on the VisualFileChange gadget, which enables batch processing of files. At the top you can select actions like Nominate for deletion (open a batch DR), Copyvio (tag each image as copyvio), No permission (tag each image as npd), etc. You can then check off the images you want the action applied to, and hit Execute at the bottom.
As for your rationale, I don't disagree - it's just that for normal images, I need to be roughly 99% confident in a copyvio to speedy deletion, but for a few dozen similar images I need to be 99.9% confident because undeleting a bunch of mistakenly deleted images is extremely painful. And the fact that he has so many similar images also increasing the likelihood of legitimacy. (For example, imagine someone called RandomUser1234 who uploads 10 images whose EXIF say that they are by Bob Smith, and no images naming any other author in the EXIF. Then there is a very good chance they are in fact Bob Smith, and we should talk to them first rather than tagging their images for deletion.) -- King of ♥ 16:10, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, thanks for the hint.
In what sense uploading 50 screengrabs from an (likely copyrighted) video increases the likelihood of legitimacy compared to uploading one or two?
In my understanding, the onus of proof of legitimacy is on the uploader. As I've assessed it, false "own work" claims, false "sourcing" to own profile at Archive.org, and presence of various broadcasters' logos make it virtually 100% certain that the material is unlicensed.
BTW, I nominated only those uploads by the editor that bore a broadcaster logo. There is also no EXIF present in these images, as they are all screengrabs. Cheers, — kashmīrī 16:59, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Because uploading several dozen or hundreds of screenshots of the same program is exactly what an authorized channel would do. -- King of ♥ 21:33, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
They would do if the screengrabs were all from the same channel. But here we had at screengrabs from at least four different videos with four different logos.
I don't have much experience with the Commons, but if this happened on en-wiki, the uploader would be already indeffed. As I wrote, they must prove that the videos are legitimate; and not the rest of editors argue otherwise.
I'm leaving it at that. Cheers, — kashmīrī 23:29, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
BTW, you might like to take a look at this: [5]kashmīrī 23:34, 19 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, in a DR, they must prove that the videos are legitimate. In a speedy deletion, it is the reverse: we must ensure that there is no hope for a free license or PD. It's not clear what they are saying in the message you linked; at this point we don't know for sure whether they have authorization to release the images or not, so we should keep asking for clarifying details. -- King of ♥ 02:16, 20 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ask about reason of Your request for deletion[edit]

Good evening. I would like to ask, what was the reason of Your former request such like this or this. I can mention some examples where we have similar ones but in an unclear condition that Template (or any other) is correct as opposed to mine (i.e. Template:ARKUSZ SP-1-152 or Template:Statut Polskiej Partii Piratów.pdf). Thanks in advance. Superjurek (talk) 19:43, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, templates are regular elements intended for regular reuse on many (hundreds, thousands or more) pages. Template:Polish coats of arms by Tadeusz Gajl is a copyright/authorship template that's displays a predetermined text on over 1,000 image description pages – see here.
Your uploads, on the other hand, are regular images that should be uploaded to the mainspace. They certainly are not templates. — kashmīrī 22:18, 19 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comment[edit]

At Commons:Deletion requests/File:Al-badr flag.png, you said "Besides, you seem not to understand how copyright works. Organisations are not copyright holders; creators are".

That is often not correct. A creator working for an organization will usually have a Work for hire agreement in place so that the organization will be the copyright holder. In the case of a logo for a terrorist organization, who can know what its actual status is, but PRP requires us to assume that the organization owns the copyright. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 21:54, 22 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jim: (1) The creator will always retain copyright – the organisation might have an automatic copyright assignment (licence). (2) This may work in situations where the organisation is a legal entity (i.e., established on the basis of local legislation), however I sincerely that Al-Bard is an entity with any standing in the law (i.e., it doesn't hold rights and obligations). — kashmīrī 22:36, 22 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
(1) You are splitting hairs -- while it is true that in most countries the creator owns the copyright in perpetuity, a work for hire license will give all rights and control over the copyright to the organization for which the creator works, so the creator's continuing ownership has no real meaning.
(2) In many countries a group of people who share a common cause has a legal standing as a voluntary association. Such an association can hold the rights to a logo. .     Jim . . . (Jameslwoodward) (talk to me) 12:36, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Incorrect. (1) Unless officially incorporated, associations are not legal persons and cannot own a property, be it material or intellectual; (2) for a voluntary association to be recognised in law, its object (purpose) must be lawful. So, a crime syndicate, a rebel group, etc., are not "voluntary association" and also will not be able to claim copyright protection.
Al-Badr, being an illegal crime group, is not a subject in law and cannot own IP rights or copyrights (as it cannot enter contracts). — kashmīrī 21:49, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I noticed that you uploaded a file using the name File:Yevgeny Prigozhin (13-06-2023).jpg. A file by this name already existed on Commons. Overwriting an existing file should not be done except when making minor, uncontroversial corrections, so the file has been restored to its previous version. If the file that you attempted to upload is within our project scope and is in the public domain or published under a free license, please upload it again under a different name. Thank you. For more information, please see Commons:Overwriting files.

@Belbury, that's precisely what I did - these were all minor, uncontroversial corrections, essentially a touch-up. It seems you have reverted simply because you didn't like the changes, and not because I violated any policies, right? — kashmīrī TALK 11:27, 17 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No, it was because of the guideline that the template directs you to, Commons:Overwriting existing files. The bullet list at the top says that overwriting an old image with a new one is permissible for:
  • ✓[OK] Minor improvements
    • ✘ Except for digital restoration
You can read Commons:Overwriting_existing files#Exceptions specifically for an explanation of that. Belbury (talk) 11:37, 17 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Belbury: With due respect, but what I did was not digital restoration. Digital photograph restoration is a process of digitising non-digital content. The guideline spells it out: If digital restoration work is being done on a historical document or artwork....
What I did was precisely minor and uncontroversial color correction, noise reduction, perspective correction etc.. — kashmīrī TALK 13:31, 17 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would have described your work there as en:digital photograph restoration, in that you're starting from a slightly blurred photo of Prigozhin and using your judgement to introduce new information to it. Where the original shows some kind of ambiguous dent or mark on Prigozhin's cheek, your restoration interprets it as an almost yin-yang-shaped pattern on flat skin.
If you're using AI to sharpen and add details to the image, that seems like it would fall under the spirit of Commons:Overwriting existing files#Exceptions to the minor changes rule (Artificially upscaling or enlarging using any tool, including AI-based or deep learning services).

@Belbury: I humbly ask you to re-read Digital photograph restoration, paying special attention to the type of source content required for the process (hint: analog), as well as to double-check the meaning of "upscaling or enlarging".
I'm quite certain that use of graphics software to improve sharpness, enhance detail, increase colour depth, etc., is perfectly within policy.
Since you've objected to my work (even though the current image is inferior IMO), I'm leaving it at it. — kashmīrī TALK 02:41, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Fully agree that the original is inferior! It's just my understanding of the spirit of Commons policy that if we add detail to an image while improving it (even if that image began as a digital one, and its width and height remain unchanged), then it has to be a separate upload.
Since we're reading things differently and the policy page by itself doesn't, I think, go into enough detail to answer the issue either way, I'll raise a discussion on the policy page. Belbury (talk) 08:57, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you continue overwriting with digital restorations in violation of COM:OW, you may be reported and the autopatrol right that Abzeronow gave you may be removed or you may be blocked.   — 🇺🇦Jeff G. please ping or talk to me🇺🇦 13:14, 19 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
