For Betta Recovering.jpg in VIEdit

We can improve the image but it is too noisy. In any case we will have tried. You can pay the last version I paid if you do not like it. Have a good day. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:46, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

@Archaeodontosaurus: Sorry for the late reply, but thank you for your help. --Boothsift (talk) 19:33, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2018 is open!Edit

Dear Boothsift,

You are receiving this message because we noticed that you voted in R1 of the 2018 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in the second round. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2018) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked.

In the final (and current) round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2018.

Round 2 will end 17 March 2019, 23:59:59.

Click here to vote now!

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 18:04, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Hi, You submit very good image in VI, but for my personal taste which is not a rule, I would be sensitive that they are used at least once in another project that COMMONS. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 06:29, 27 March 2019 (UTC)

File:Big Guns at the Imperial War Museum (geograph 4108391).jpgEdit

Hello. I suspect it wasn't deliberate, but in addition to brightening this image you've also reduced it from 3000 × 4000 pixels to 450 × 600. --bjh21 (talk) 17:03, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

@Bjh21: Thanks for the notice. --BoothSift 19:03, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Your new version isn't an improvement. It's got the right number of pixels, but it looks like it was made by scaling up the smaller one, rather than by adjusting the colours on the original. For instance, where "DIEU" below the royal arms is easily readable in the original, it's completely unreadable in the new version. --bjh21 (talk) 22:24, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

Enlarging images is not helpfulEdit

I've noticed a few recent cases where you have overwritten an image with an enlarged version of the same image. This is not helpful: it doesn't add any useful detail, but (at least for JPEG images) it increases the file size and adds an additional layer of compression artefacts. If you need to display an image in an article at a size larger than its natural one, you can do that by specifying a size in the image link. For instance, in User:Bjh21/Geograph and Photograph of the Year, I use [[File:Islands of mud, East Hoyle Bank - geograph.org.uk - 237266.jpg|800px]] to cause the reader's browser to display the picture 800px across rather than the original 640px. In many cases, you haven't even enlarged the orignal picture, but have apparently enlarged a lower-resolution version, so that the result is fuzzier than the original. This is particularly obvious in the Wesley plaque where the original was readable but your enlargement was not.

In the following images, your enlargement was accompanied by an improvement, so I've not (yet) reverted them. You might want to consider whether you can make the same improvements starting with the full-resolution version and without enlarging:

In the following cases, your enlargement was not accompanied by any improvement, so I, or someone else, have reverted the change:

Please could you refrain from doing this kind of thing in future? --bjh21 (talk) 12:57, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

@Bjh21: Oh gosh, thank you. On Photoshop, the results were much better, but I guess I may have uploaded the wrong image for all of these. Thank you and Podzemnik for catching these. --BoothSift 18:03, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

FPCEdit

Hi! Please be more careful about what you chose to nominate at FPC. It may be all fun and games to you, but all your 'withdrawn' nominations make extra work for us who maintain the page. The withdrawn nominations are not processed by Bots, a human has to do the closing and archiving. Thanks! --Cart (talk) 09:26, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

@W.carter: My bad, that was not my intent. However, I withdrew because I asked Archaeodontosaurus. Sorry--BoothSift 22:55, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover!Edit

 

Hi Boothsift, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.
