Photo requests[edit]

Do you do photo requests in Copenhagen? If so, I have some ideas.

Thank you WhisperToMe (talk) 06:42, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi WhisperToMe, Thanks for your request. Unfortunately I live quite far away from Copenhagen (3-4 hours travel distance), so it is not within my normal reach. I know Jebulon was in Copenhagen one week ago, and took a lot of photos there in nice weather. If you are lucky he already has what you are looking for Face-smile.svg. And regrettably I cannot out-of-my-head come to think of any active Danish Commons user photogaphers located close to Copenhagen. -- Slaunger (talk) 12:02, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the tip! I'll go ahead and contact him :) WhisperToMe (talk) 14:26, 6 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi,

I have updated now the EXIF-data. I find your conditional oppose nevertheless largely inappropriate. --Wladyslaw (talk) 20:48, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

Wladyslaw, it is required that a EXIF ColorSpace tag is set to sRGB and also that a colour profile is embedded for sRGB. Without this all browsers will not display the correct colours on a calibrated monitor and especially so on a wide-gamut monitor. I know it is possible to configure GIMP to save JPGs with this required data as I've done it myself. You can use Jeffrey's Image Metadata Viewer to check that files are defined properly. At FP we expect our images to represent the "finest" on Commons, and getting the colours right is absolutely part of that requirement. I have embedded an sRGB colour profile into this image for you. -- Colin (talk) 21:17, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
Hi Wladyslaw. Thanks for the heads up on the updated image file. I find that your critique of my conditional oppose is unwarranted since adequate embedded color space data in the EXIF is a prerequisite for browsers and applications to correctly represent the intended colors on various display systems. Considering that you are a long term participant at FPC I am surprised you are questioning that our most excellent images (one in 3000) should have adequate metadata. -- Slaunger (talk) 05:38, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Colin: We already had this discussion. I tried out to save the Color Space in Gimp. All description did fail. Here I have copied the EXIF of one image to the stitching. What you have exactly done with embedding the sRGB colour profile into this image is not comprehensible for me, sorry. Beside of this it's not acceptable that your edit extinguished my copy right information and other camera data only because of this Colos Space info. Please fix it or I'll revert your edit. --Wladyslaw (talk) 06:29, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Taxiarchos228, Colin. It is correct that some metadata, like copyright and other camera details are absent from the EXIF in your edit Colin. And I have no problem with this discussion taking place here. -- Slaunger (talk) 06:53, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Taxiarchos228 I based my edit on your first file version (as I assumed the only thing in the second version was an added ColorSpace tag). The first file version contains no copyright or camera details -- I didn't remove anything. I see now that your second version contains far more EXIF data. I'll fix this tonight, and if I have the patience, try to figure out again what you are doing wrong in GIMP. I do recall that GIMP was not intuitive and was misleading with some of the information it displays. But it certainly is possible to get GIMP to save files properly. Perhaps another solution is to ask to see if any other FP regulars use GIMP successfully, and they can help explain their workflow. If you used Lightroom or Photoshop there would be less of a problem, as it embeds a colour profile by default. I see you use PtGui also. What do you use to process raw files, or do you just use the out-of-camera JPGs? -- Colin (talk) 07:44, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
Colin: For processing the raw files I use the NIKON Capture Software (either the version NX-D or 2). What was the sense/necessity of your new upload although I have uploaded the image with colorspace-info in the EXIF? For me it's much more easier to copy the EXIF-info of one single image to the stitching result than to configure GIMP which I maybe will not use any more in a year (I think about of changing, but not because of the EXIF-problem). --Wladyslaw (talk) 11:56, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Wladyslaw, two things are required. First is to correctly set the ColorSpace EXIF tag to sRGB. But the second is to embed an ICC profile into the JPG. I agree that it is best to start off with a JPG/TIFF that contains all the info, rather than fix it at the end. There should be an option on NIKON Capture like "Embed ICC profile" when you save/export the JPG. See this web page. Once you do that, then I believe PtGui will pass that information through to the output TIFF/JPG and (fingers-crossed) GIMP won't mislay it either. -- Colin (talk) 12:43, 29 April 2016 (UTC)
Okay, thx. I'll try to consider this in the future. --Wladyslaw (talk) 12:56, 29 April 2016 (UTC)

I reuploaded the image with embedded color profile. --Rettinghaus (talk) 08:38, 28 April 2016 (UTC)

@Rettinghaus:: Excellent! Sorry, but I did not see your message before the nommination was closed, but I see it just made it over the promototion threshold anyway, which is good. -- Slaunger (talk) 06:26, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
