Please improve image backgroundEdit

Graphist opinion(s)

@MauraWen, don't be surprised! To reduce the moiré pattern, I downsized the image file. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 15:56, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

@MagentaGreen: Thank you! I didn't know the busy background is called, a "moiré pattern". I will remember that phrase for any future requests. MauraWen (talk) 16:26, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Uploading two properly cropped, higher quality versions of some Houston photosEdit

Article(s): Houston series of articles

Would anyone be interested in uploading the higher res, properly cropped versions of the photos above? The two cropped versions don't seem to be the highest res possible.

Thanks, --WhisperToMe (talk) 22:17, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

  Done For the Rice Hotel image it seems the uploader of the low res image not only used a lower resolution but also applied some sort of filter. I'm not sure what the purpose of that file is, but a higher res crop already exists and is being used. For the Rice institue image, I did as you suggested and recropped and rotated the image using the previous high resolution upload. Auguel (talk) 00:27, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Making processed cropped scans of pages of Armenian national constitutionEdit


See Category:Armenian National Constitution raw unprocessed scans

Article(s): en:Armenian National Constitution

Please process the scans so each page is cleanly its own image. That way they can be converted into a high quality PDF which may be used at the Armenian wikisource --WhisperToMe (talk) 00:46, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
  • I may do this later (unless someone else does it first). Meanwhile, I have reuploaded the raw scans in full resolution as available in the source. Auguel (talk) 20:07, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
  • @WhisperToMe: I could do a few, but I don't really want to do them all. I assume you only want them rotated and cropped, no contrast enhancement/desaturation/etc? - Alexis Jazz ping plz 02:52, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
I found there are programs that do this including OCR and PDF output, but I can't get it to work. It'll be better if someone does that instead of extracting all these by hand. - Alexis Jazz ping plz 03:39, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
@Alexis Jazz: Just rotated and cropped are fine! I don't have access to the original documents in London. WhisperToMe (talk) 06:05, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Stone pines La BrenaEdit


I tried to enhance this pic; however the results did not satisfy me. The barks in the foreground are too dark, the sky looks whitish, the foliage is not green enough. Nevertheless, a colder looking image is not suitable for the pic, in my opinion. Could you help me to get a better balanced image?--Carnby (talk) 11:20, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
