How can I improve that?Edit

Citrus x limonia in a black background


I just want a help to improve the quality, how can I improve this image? (white background is not a option) --Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 12:58, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

This could be an option. Please revert if not satisfied. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 14:29, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
MagentaGreen, thanks for your attention, but this became totally artificial, and created some chromatic aberrations. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 16:38, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, then I do not know what you are expecting. Could you please be a bit more precise? In addition, chromatic aberration results from a distortion due to an inaccuracy of the lens and not of the software. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 19:45, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
The question is very simple, there is a way to improve that photo?
Shoot it in a different angle, increase light, decrease light, change exposition, change aperture...
Balance in more warm/cold colour, put more vibrancy...
Ore it's ok, it's a good quality image? Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 23:52, 7 September 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I noticed it has black "things" in the reflection. It is distracting. -- Deadstar (msg) 12:37, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Deadstar and the center of the cut fruit is "burned". Then I ask, Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton: which is the scope of the picture?--Pierpao.lo (listening) 09:21, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Corrupt fileEdit

Article(s): Oriol Hernández


It says is a corrupt file. When I click over the file, it loads a little bit, but it seems like the file cannot be used. Could it be recovered? --Coentor (talk) 09:34, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

I have reverted it to the older, smaller, version which was working. I would suggest you try uploading the file again, perhaps the transfer got interrupted or something. -mattbuck (Talk) 23:56, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
No, I mean, the reverted one is other photo. The original file corrupted, and if Someone checks the old version, sill see that it loads a little, until it finally fails.--Coentor (talk) 16:07, 7 November 2014 (UTC)


I might could be increased be glad for the focus on the mill and the quality would be increased. --FritsHG eh?
Graphist opinion(s)
Well, I did something. But overall image quality is quite bad. Not much can be done. Amada44  talk to me 14:01, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Removing the watermarkEdit

fr:Lucy Berthet
Is it possible to remove the watermark? --Yann (talk) 13:48, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

✓ Done - If you don't like the cropping you can revert it to the previous version. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 16:39, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Good. You can upload over the old version. Regards, Yann (talk) 16:55, 13 April 2015 (UTC
I would not like, because it is a separate file. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 17:04, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
With your new file, the old one is useless. I don't think we need to keep them separately. Regards, Yann (talk) 18:56, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
I often made the experience that better arrangements are made with hindsight. How else can a simple way of comparison be made? The information for other_versions are given in both versions. I would to prefer to keep it, Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 19:25, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
