  • Put Babel boxes on your user page so others know what languages you can speak and indicate your graphic abilities.
  • All your uploads are stored in your personal gallery
  • Please sign your name on Talk pages by typing ~~~~
  • Use the CommonSense tool to find good categories for your files (then other people can find them too!)
  • To link to an image page without embedding the image, type: [[:Image:Foo.jpg]], which produces: Image:Foo.jpg
  • If you're copying files from another project, be sure to use the CommonsHelper
Nuvola filesystems trashcan full.png Made a mistake?
  • Did you want to rename or move a file? Simply upload the file again and mark the old one like this: {{bad name|correct name}}

Over-categorization.svg
Start hand.svg
When categorising files, please avoid placing them into several categories that are directly linked within the same tree (e.g. a parent category and a child category – like Category:United Kingdom and Category:London), to prevent over-categorization of files and over-population of categories. Usually, only the most specific category should be used. See Commons:Categories for more details. Thank you.

This is what you did for images in Category:Picton, Ontario. Since this category is already part of Category:Prince Edward County, Ontario, you don't need to add this latter category to the images. Thanks. --P 1 9 9   21:06, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Right, P199. I see that now. No arguments. Still getting used to how nested the categories are here. Thanks for fixing it. --WikiPedant (talk) 21:41, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Commons:Valued image candidates/Clearwater Beach pirate ship excursion.jpg[edit]

I canceled your change. The last remark does not invalidate the media you have. As it is, your image is valid as the value of image. Si tu lis le français, la dernière remarque qui t'a été faite n'invalide pas le support de l'image. En l'état, elle passera comme image de valeur. --Medium69 You wanted talk to me? 00:37, 16 December 2015 (UTC)

Cropping images[edit]

Thanks for the thanks. By way of information for the future, when you want to crop an image I suggest you use the CropTool that can be activated in your commons Preferences, under Gadgets. The CropTool will then appears in the left side of your screen. It saves everyone a lot of time because it transfers all the correct and appropriate information into the cropped image, such as source, licence, author, etc. It even leaves a backlink to the original and visa versa. That way all the proper information is there and does not need to be manually reviewed by volunteers. It really saves a lot of time and frustration in the first place, so try the CropTool next time. Good luck. Ww2censor (talk) 17:37, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Many thanks for the tip. I have activated the crop tool and taken it for a test drive. It will obviously be very useful. Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 18:05, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
This would also help in uploading new versions - I'm always a bit hesistant myself when cropping anything inside the image itself (that is, aside from a black lining etc). It doesn't hurt to have two versions of the same image anyway.
On a separate note, when you uploaded a new version of [[:File:Philip-jos-farmer.jpg}this]] image, you noted it was in the public domain. I suppose that was a mistake, or am I overlooking something? Effeietsanders (talk) 14:06, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
Hello Effeietsanders -- You're right on both points. (1) A CC-licence gives away a lot, but does not go so far as to put an image into the public domain, and it was sloppy of me to say that. (2) I should stop taking shortcuts and upload separate, adapted versions of CC-licenced originals. I suppose even my intrusively-modified Philip Jose Farmer image would be unobjectionable if I uploaded it as a new, separate image (or am I still wrong?). Thanks for keeping me honest. -- WikiPedant (talk) 06:14, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

When creating a cropped and reduced version, as you did with this image, please save it as a separate file. Thanks. — WFinch (talk) 04:14, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello WFinch -- I try to do this for any image I consider to be archival, but I honestly didn't regard this image as archival. In any case, I see you've already done the heavy lifting. Thanks. -- WikiPedant (talk) 04:44, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Progressive jpegs[edit]

Hello, just an FYI. I notice that some of the jpegs you're uploading (Charlton Heston for example) are interlaced/progressive. C:Help:Progressive says not to use this type of jpeg. (Hohum @) 16:18, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't care for progressive jpegs myself, but don't always check. I'll look back through some of my recent uploads and replace any that need fixing, and I'll be careful about this in the future. Thanks again. -- WikiPedant (talk) 16:38, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
PS: I see what happened. I recently installed Ubuntu and have been a newbie user of GIMP for a couple of weeks. But it turns out that GIMP has "progressive" set as the default format for saving JPEGs. The default is fixed now and I've have retrieved all the GIMP-manipulated images I recently uploaded. I'll fix and re-upload them over the next couple of days. Thanks again for catching this. -- WikiPedant (talk) 20:11, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

working on jpegs[edit]

Hello WikiPedant, thank you for contributing to our projects! I set your user status to autopatrolled. Just a hint: If one crops or adjusts a given jpeg image it is not helpful to increase the jpeg compression quality when storing it. The image won't become better but bigger thereby. Better store it keeping the previously given compression value (90% or whatever it is). Regards, --Achim (talk) 18:27, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Hello @Achim: Thanks. You're right, some of my recent uploads needlessly have bigger sizes than the originals. When I started using GIMP a few months ago, I wasn't sure what to expect so I set the value to 100% just to play it safe. I'll take more care with image sizes in the future. Thanks again. -- WikiPedant (talk) 22:31, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

File:Meet_Taylor_Mason_(Asia_Kate_Dillon)_Billions_Season_2.jpg[edit]

This was nice! Thank you! Can you tell me what you did, or point me to a tutorial or something? I'd love to be able to do that. --GRuban (talk) 16:16, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello @GRuban: Thank you. I really didn't do much to this one, just a couple basic Photoshop adjustments: to "levels" and "sharpness". Photoshop takes a while to learn, but the basics come fairly naturally. Just start with the basics. You can find tutorials, of widely varying quality, on YouTube. A lot of the learning is just through trial and error -- Work with temporary copies of images and be prepared to ruin lots of them. Two words of advice: (1) Photoshop gives the most reliable results and (2) don't overdo the adjustments. -- WikiPedant (talk) 18:53, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
It was literal Photoshop, not GIMP? --GRuban (talk) 22:26, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Actually, this one was GIMPed. The "levels" and "sharpen" functions are similar in both. But for other functions, like color management, GIMP is distinctly inferior. I would definitely recommend Photoshop over GIMP if you're just starting fresh to learn this stuff. -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:58, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

File:Thomas Thieme.jpg[edit]

Hello WikiPedant. You cut off Thieme's right shoulder. There were a few centimeters on the right side of the picture that were superfluous, but cutting into his body like this to create a hovering face unrelated to it's surroundings was not called for, I think. I made the picture. It did not cross your mind to ask me before mutilating it... Best regards, --Gereon K. (talk) 15:04, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Gereon K.: I didn't mutilate anything. For better thumbnail display, I tightened the framing to a conventional portrait format. And I adjusted the levels to dial down the overexposed skin tones in harsh sunlight. But I have no problem with restoring your version and uploading mine as a separate image, which I have now done. Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 22:03, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Hello WikiPedant. I was not complaining about dialing down of the overexposure. Thank you for that. I just did not like the cutting off of one arm. The picture was made in the open in a filming break I had with him, so there is no need to pretend that it was a portrait situation. --Gereon K. (talk) 22:14, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
