Hi. An editor at English Wikipedia has identified the source of File:Ac.earlymelb.jpg as being the State Library of Victoria.[1] The work is out of copyright, so there are no issues there. However, I noticed that they have a version available for download in TIFF format at 59.2 MB (5,246 x 3,943) compared to our own low quality 36 KB (357 × 263). What is the best method of uploading the higher quality version? The higher quality file will need to be cropped either before or after upload as it strays beyond the boundary of the picture.

I notice that there are two variants of this file available at Category:Enterprize (ship, 1829). Should I just crop the border on the higher quality version and upload it as a third file? From Hill To Shore (talk) 09:25, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
Request withdrawn. I've found the answer that says unless it is an exact duplicate, it should be uploaded as a new file. As I have cropped the higher quality file, I will upload it separately. From Hill To Shore (talk) 10:29, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

Autopatrolled rights given[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically marked as "reviewed". This has no effect on your editing, it is simply intended to make it easier for users that are monitoring Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones like yours. In addition, the Flickr upload feature and an increased number of batch-uploads in UploadWizard, uploading of freely licensed MP3 files and an increased limit for page renames per minute are now available to you. Thank you.. - FitIndia Talk Mail 14:31, 23 February 2020 (UTC)
