Watermark removalEdit

Article(s): Lots are used

Request
Can someone remove the watermark from all Category:Files from The Bui Brothers Flickr stream ? They are extremely annoying. Thanks.--Sinistrial (talk) 18:50, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

This is not a realistic request, due to the large number of images. If you want to go through the images and add the {{watermark}} template to the images with a watermark, that will add the images to the "Images with watermarks" maintenance category. If you want to make a request for a specific image you need for a article you're working on then you can make your request (ideally should be 1-3 images), but asking us to go through 300+ images, find the ones with watermarks and edit them all is not a realistic request. I clicked through a number of the images and many aren't being used in articles. Please limit your request to images that are for use in a article or needed for a project/project tasks, etc. Offnfopt(talk) 10:05, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Fly Like an Eagle by Steve MillerEdit

Article(s): en:Fly Like an Eagle (song)

Request
I have not yet created File:Fly Like an Eagle by Steve Miller US vinyl A-side.png. I have here a JPEG image of the side label, but I could not upload it here because the outer and inner area looks too creative to be uploaded. The outer and inner areas must be blanked out. However, I believe that PNG does a better resolution and can display well without opaque background. You can upload the image, and then I will modify the file description. --George Ho (talk) 09:34, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for creating the image. However, I still don't see the big word "Capitol"; it looks faint. You must have added a lot of contrast or lessen the brightness. You can also remove the opaque background and make it transparent. --George Ho (talk) 21:07, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
The opaque background is removed. A watermark, the big word "Capitol" was also removed. PawełMM (talk) 23:25, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for removing the "opaque". However, the "Capitol" part was essential to the label. It should not have been removed. --George Ho (talk) 06:33, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
@George Ho: Done. PawełMM (talk) 17:01, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Could you resize this photo: it's too long. I think only upper body picture (with the flowers) is OK enough. Merci. Leonprimer (talk) 11:36, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

  Done: you could probably have done this yourself with the Crop Tool. Please mark with {{section resolved|1=~~~~}} if happy. Ww2censor (talk) 15:14, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Watermark removal,Edit

thanks alot , but there is still a watermark writing up left in the first photo (not very clear, it says "corbis" or something like that).--MrJoker07 (talk) 07:20, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Looking the PD license tag on the image and not going into any possible intricacies, it seems plausible enough that the image is in the public domain. Assuming this, I uploaded a dewatermarked version of the Getty Images picture. —Quibik (talk) 20:35, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
I don't have time now as I off for a few days away but that Saudi Arabia copyright tag is definitely wrong. The image was taken in the US: "arrive at LaGuardia Field", so I doubt it is even PD in the US. I'll investigate more when I return. Ww2censor (talk) 00:23, 25 November 2016 (UTC)

Article(s): en:Somethin' Stupid

Request
I uploaded the image. However, the small size makes the compression too obvious. I need a lossless PNG version, but the opaque background must also be replaced with transparent one. The inner circle must be replaced with transparent background. --George Ho (talk) 05:49, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. Either need more cleanup, or upload the one with the black circle border retained, or something. I see some... I don't know how to explain it briefly. --George Ho (talk) 08:12, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Or maybe use this? --George Ho (talk) 08:17, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
I found other alternatives: this and that. --George Ho (talk) 08:22, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

Poorly done. Do you have the 45cat account? With that, you can view the larger size of the image. If that's not necessary, here is one from discogs. --George Ho (talk) 23:34, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

@PawełMM:thanks. Where's the rest ?--Anass Badou (talk) 17:07, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

  Done the rest. I cleaned up all the images in that category (mostly coherent noise removal using FFT) and re-did the watermark removal a bit more thoroughly by recovering the watermark template. If there are any other images that need watermark removal, then you can find the template at [1] (plus another one). To use it just center it on the image and set layer blending mode to "divide". —Quibik (talk) 01:29, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
