Colombia and Kenyan imagesEdit

Article(s): [[]]

Request
Hi with the first image I need help with Why PNG? May be WB wrong, artifacts/sharpness. With the other images, I think they're very interesting. Can I please have help with categorisation, and description as I can't remember where they are in Kenya, also optimization as to which if any are quality. Thanks

Graphist opinion(s)

@E.3: Ok, it took me a while, to figure this out and I still don't know, what's the purpose with this photographs but I did some adjustment to them anyhow. I added descriptions and categories, cropped the first one and did some work on the paintings, especially sharpening, color contrast and reflexion removing. The first one is from Chicamocha National Park in Colombia other ones are from a Portuguese Wall painting in Mombasa. There are a few of them on Commons like they are summed up in Category:Murals in Kenya now. I really hope those are youre pictures, cause I found some quite similar ones on the internet (like this one). If so it, of course, still may be that you cannot remember where you took them.

The commentary on the first picture for me looks like pointless loathing for its own sake. I neither see remarkable artifacts of compression nor is there a necessity to have this file a JPG. The colors fit to the mood of the image and even the slightly grainy structure supports it. For me, this would be a Quality image without thinking too long about it. However I cropped it a bit und uploaded it as JPG so a new version would make sense at all. I hope, that's it.--Der Angemeldete (talk) 21:28, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Sharpening png filesEdit

One of the devs thinks it's a bad idea, please see phab:T192744#4923483.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 06:00, 7 February 2019 (UTC)

I commented there - and I urge anyone else reading this who thinks that the poor, blurry png thumbnails currently served by Mediawiki are an issue well overdue for 'fixing' to also add their thoughts. -- Begoon 08:26, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
Ah well - a plan to address this was kinda arrived at there, but then it all went quiet... again.... Perhaps I'm wrong and nobody really cares that much about this. Shame, if so. -- Begoon 13:47, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

@PawełMM: There is a hard edge around the blur that looks really bad. Please fix this, as it currently looks like Thatcher has been cut out of a magazine with scissors and pasted on another background. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 00:04, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Overexposed white church facade, FP candidateEdit

Article(s): en:Church of the Intercession of the Nerl

Request
?overexposed facade ?noisy sky
Hi a few wikigraphists have helped with this one, I nominated it for FP. One person replied "Very peaceful, but the white of the church looks overexposed, attenuating the view of details of the facade, and there's more noise than I prefer, especially evident in the sky. I don't think this is an FP, at least not yet." Was hoping to see if anyone was able to play around with it a little more see how we go? Thanks!----E.3 (Talk). 14:39, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
@E.3: Because nobody answered in over a month, I'll try to give an answer. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Unfortunately overexposed means lost. The parts of the facade that are overexposed are just white. The structure that was there is lost and cannot be brought back. Unless it is a camera model that can store raw images and you still have that raw image there is nothing that can be done. Noise reduction should be possible. --Andreas Stiasny (talk) 11:08, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Since this illustration was published in 1908, and J. Ellsworth Gross died in 1933, the illustration is PD-old-auto-expired|1933. As such, it would be very convenient if someone could remove the shutterstock watermarks (while leaving the "Copyright 1908, J Ellsworth Gross, Chicago" watermark). Hope that's not too inconvenient?

It's certainly not a good idea to overwrite originals, which is by the way contrary to our official guidelines. This is well known, but hardly anyone wants to follow the rules.
