Merging File:VanEyck-PortraitGoldsmith.jpgEdit

Hi billinghurst, please merge just the other way, as i questioned, as the other is smaller with same pixels and there I made the final artwork--Oursana (talk) 08:13, 22 April 2017 (UTC)

The practice has been where images are the same dimensions to keep the larger-sized file due its compression being less.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:33, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
where is that stated, by same pixels there can not be compression, the bigger size is due to other information. I can show you cases, where you kept the smaller file, which is standard commons--Oursana (talk) 08:42, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Revision of File:ALucas Cranach the Elder - A Faun and his Family with a slain Lion - Google Art Project.jpg--Oursana (talk) 16:41, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
You will excuse me if I don't recall the exact decision-making process of the time. All I can suggest there is that I went with your request to delete your (contemporary) recent upload. You will see in the archives of this talk page how I have for the past seven years applied the criteria for which duplicate has got deleted, and there are a variety of hierarchical criteria that one can apply. I didn't see it the way that you did, and within the limitation of the available tools, that was the way that I went. I don't see it as a significant issue. Re to where are the instructions ... Commons:Deletion_policy#Duplicates and the previous renditions, which have shortened to now say etc.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:19, 26 April 2017 (UTC)


Hi, I have undone a series of your fixes, e.g. here, because these templates were actually broken by your edit. Jcb (talk) 22:22, 24 May 2017 (UTC)

Thanks. AWB's preview clearly wasn't showing me something then. That whole series of uploads is problematic for their implementation of creator and category. Such is life.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:46, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
