terrible import of Botticelli's Venus used throughout WikipediaEdit

According to its file usage info, many Wikipedia branches use File:Sandro_Botticelli_-_La_nascita_di_Venere_-_Google_Art_Project_-_edited.jpg. This has a max resolution of 30k x 19k which is a whopping 200 MB. But it is extremly blurry close up, and I estimate that a whole order of magnitude of resolution is completely wasted. This file in turn goes back to File:Sandro_Botticelli_-_La_nascita_di_Venere_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg which shares the same problem, and that refers to "Google Cultural Institute, zoom level maximum" as source - and there, at Google, is an actual sharp and crisp image to be found with incredible detail. Either it was imported in a rather clumsy fashion, or at a point in time when Google did not offer a better resolution. Anyway it would be a nice task to find, or do a better import, and go through the various projects and replace it. -- Theoprakt (talk) 08:29, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Covering addresses on lettersEdit

Article(s): en:Al Jolson

Request
I agree with the practice of covering addresses on letters, if the addressee is still living or has not been deceased for many years, but I believe it should be done in an esthetically more pleasing way than this. Perhaps the address area on this letter could be covered with a light grey or mottled rectangle onstead of the digital scribbles? --Schlosser67 (talk) 07:57, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

New collage of the jazz quintet that played on David Bowie's BlackstarEdit

Article(s): en:Blackstar (album)

Request
Can someone please create a 4x4 collage/montage of the most well-known lineup of the Clash post-breakup? (images above). Specifically, I'd like it zoomed in on their faces; Preferably in the style of File:Queen_–_montagem_–_new.png, File:The_Fabs.JPG, or File:LedZeppelinmontage.jpg. I don't have photoshop otherwise I'd do it myself. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance! :-) – zmbro (talk) 16:24, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

Zmbro,

Did you tried GIMP? I am a lit overwhelm by the WLE, so another wikigraphist will assume, but this is quite simple and GIMP is an open software. -- Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton m 16:35, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

Thanks Paweł, but do you think you could overwrite with a full body shot? ᴀlbanɢeller (talk) 04:34, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@Neveselbert (mobile): Done as requested. PawełMM (talk) 08:25, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@PawełMM: thanks again. Can you please blur the background also? ᴀlbanɢeller (talk) 15:53, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@Neveselbert (mobile): Background blurred. PawełMM (talk) 20:28, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@PawełMM: Thanks. I've had time to think about it, and I no longer think a full body shot is suitable. Can you please crop the file again but as a headshot with the same aspect ratio as Rab Butler.jpg? ᴀlbanɢeller (talk) 19:33, 8 August 2020 (UTC)
@Neveselbert (mobile): Done as requested. PawełMM (talk) 07:03, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Descreen/Demoivre possibilityEdit

Article(s): en:Harold_Maxwell-Lefroy en:Edward Charles Buck

Request

Would it be possible to remove the moivre artefacts in green and purple?

The result can be a greyscale image. --Shyamal L. (talk) 05:21, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

I tried but the moivre is still slightly visible.   Partially done PawełMM (talk) 06:28, 5 August 2020 (UTC)

Thank you, much better and already usable. Shyamal L. (talk)
Added one more image that could do with the same treatment. Shyamal L. (talk) 06:46, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@Shyamal: Done as requested. PawełMM (talk) 08:20, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@PawełMM: many thanks, is there a way to smooth the image to avoid regular pockmarks? Shyamal L. (talk) 08:26, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
@Shyamal: I tried. Attempting to soften or blur the image does not produce the sufficient effect. Details are lost and spots are still visible. PawełMM (talk) 09:05, 5 August 2020 (UTC)
