Colour-correction on this, please!Edit

Remove blue cast, add yellow component to colourise to make background vegetation natural green, while retaining foreground dead twigs as grey-buff (I already tried playing with it in photoshop, but couldn't get anything natural-looking!). - MPF (talk) 12:49, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

There is no color cast, but it's a deliberately derivative work and doesn't meet the essential requirements for a good image. Sorry for my harsh judgment. Regardless best regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 21:27, 25 July 2016 (UTC)

Mismatching pair of frames in a gifEdit

Note the "Perrow" parameter as well as the following template is not used on Commons.
{{scroll gallery
|Green_heron_neck_stretch_frame_1.gif|1. frame
|Green_heron_neck_stretch_frame_2.gif|2. frame

Re-align frames so it doesn't jump with each frame, if possible, please! - MPF (talk) 11:04, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

The background of the frames is a little bit transformed to suit each other and the second frame is slightly rotated. But that is not enough for smooth playback. The animation results with only two frames a horrible wriggling. Instead of an animated GIF I would embed the frames as in the example above. Regards, MagentaGreen (talk) 11:37, 7 August 2016 (UTC)

@MPF: I did something and uploaded it to a test file. Please upload over the other gif or to a new file if you like it. If the image has changed, just scroll down the file history. btw: thanks for categorizing all those bird images I upload!!! Amada44  talk to me 11:17, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
That's a huge lot better, thanks! I'd be inclined to upload it on top of the original, as the original is faulty, not worth keeping as a separate file from the repaired version - MPF (talk) 12:36, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

Photos of a white sheet are greyEdit

The images (created by an unknown artist in magazine "El Cascabel", in Lima, Peru) reflect the fiscal crisis in Peru, 1872. I want to put it in (en:User:Keysanger/sandbox9) an article (in spe) about the Saltpeter Monopoly.

On the book the sheets were white, but the images are grey. Can you make it clearer (again)? How did you it?. Thanks in advance, --Keysanger 11:53, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
S U P E R !!!! Thanks, again. --Keysanger 11:10, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

Please restore the white area in upper rightEdit

Article(s): Canadian Northern Railway

Please rebuild the white section in the upper right (removing it or cloning from below, using the rest of the vehicle as a guide). It's a wooden railway caboose. --Oaktree b (talk) 02:15, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

 Done I removed it but I removed the Window too as it would have been difficult to reconstruct it. revert if you don't like it. Amada44  talk to me 11:58, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

  • I don't like using the idea of using the Harper's original. I rather prefer using the tiff file. Would it be a slight improvement to the current one?--KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:39, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
Sorry @KAVEBEAR:, no real improvement will be seen as there is such lack of detail in the tiff file and it is very unsharp, so all you will end up with would be a higher resolution image, less sharp and less detail. Ww2censor (talk) 10:30, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
I only just noticed this request here. I had already seen your request at w:WP:GL/PHOTO and uploaded a version. However, Ww2censor is correct that no real improvement could be made using the tiff. I used the original source given on the file page, not having seen your preference here. The result is an improvement, but not stellar - a better source would obviously be preferable. I'm not entirely sure why you don't like the idea of using this slightly improved version until/unless a better source is found, but, as I noted on the upload, please feel very free to revert if you don't prefer this version. --Begoon - talk 00:13, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank this is fine. It is still an improvement from the original.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 00:37, 23 September 2016 (UTC)
