Article(s): en:Pueblo Opera House

I'm sorry that I know nothing about image editing. Could someone please crop out the "Mrmac" and "" at the very bottom of this image and then re-upload it? --Deor (talk) 15:56, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Straightened, cropped, min spot cleanup at File:Grand Opera House, Pueblo, Colorado crop.jpg. -- Begoon 16:27, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

If we're going to use this, then getting rid of the in-picture caption to the top-left would be advisable. Fancy drawing some sky, Begoon? There's also a textual code (?) to the bottom-right, less important but not greatly required. We're just wanting the building, not defacements added by the printer. --Tagishsimon (talk) 20:58, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
IMO I think it is good how it is. If it were a photo I could understand removing those elements, but this is a postcard, those elements are part of the postcard. Offnfopt(talk) 02:07, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Heh. That was the reason I left them in. The caption at en:Pueblo Opera House says "1912 postcard with a photograph of the Pueblo Opera House", but creating a version without them would be easy enough - in fact, I did one at File:Grand Opera House, Pueblo, Colorado retouch.jpg, with a couple of additional smears/ghosts fixed. Now you have a choice... -- Begoon 03:22, 10 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks Begoon; very clever ;). --Tagishsimon (talk) 21:08, 10 October 2016 (UTC)

Crop, greyscale denoiseEdit

Cropped versions

Article(s): Kalakaua

Let me know if this is largest scan possible from the source or are the JP2 ZIP files format larger. Please crop, greyscale and denoise theses image. Restore them to the level and quality of this version from lower resolution scan. Upload over original files. Thank you. --KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:19, 23 October 2016
Please take a look at the first one and let me know if that's the kind of thing you are aiming for. (That's from the scan in the zip, but the JP2 is no better than what you uploaded) -- Begoon 09:54, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
  Comment @KAVEBEAR: I wonder why you would want to ruin such finely engraved images by wanting them made into soft jpgs. To me they look much worse. I would just have only cropped them. Ww2censor (talk) 10:03, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
I think that's a fair point - they should certainly be done as separate images if they are done - I assume KAVEBEAR wants to use them as portrait pics. At this point I can't get a decent result anyway without losing detail. It's also possible I misinterpreted quite what was asked for, which is why I'm clarifying. -- Begoon 11:07, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Maybe a simple crop is all that is necessary.. Does the greyscaling make it better or worst?--KAVEBEAR (talk) 15:40, 24 October 2016 (UTC)
Personally I think the cropped versions look just fine, in fact better than the descreened sort of slightly out of focus versions. They could still be greyscalled if you wish. Ww2censor (talk) 08:47, 25 October 2016 (UTC)
I played with an FFT filter to try to remove some of the moire interference you get with, say, File:Princess Kaiulani, The Legends and Myths of Hawaii (1888) (cropped).jpg and the original, when viewing at 50% or full size. You can get something like File:Princess Kaiulani, The Legends and Myths of Hawaii (1888) (cropped and FFT).jpg without losing too much detail. I'm not an expert with Fourier transform filters and I didn't spend ages on it, so it might be possible to do that better. If that were greyscaled you'd lose most of the effect of the colour interference too: File:Princess Kaiulani, The Legends and Myths of Hawaii (1888) (cropped and FFT, greyscale).jpg. -- Begoon 09:21, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Lighting up selectivelyEdit

Article(s): [[]]

Please lighten up selectively and gradually the upper part of the image to rend it uniform. Thanks --Wolfgang Moroder (talk) 07:36, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

@Moroder: I have uploaded it to a test file (which will be overwritten). Please upload it over the original or to a separate file if you like it. Amada44  talk to me 09:35, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

  Done Terrific job, will post it on FPC. Thanks a lot! --Wolfgang Moroder (talk)
