Pay attention to licensing
Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content: images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose.
File:Asunder screenshot.png seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct. Please verify that you applied the correct license tag for this file.If you believe this file has the correct license, please explain why on the file description page.
- It is written on that other help page that is linked right next to that section. So I thought this one is likely to be just out of date and copied it over. Also, I just uploaded a VP9 file. While transcoding doesn't seem to be supported yet, Commons obviously accepts the new webm files.--Pink kitty111 (talk) 03:12, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
- Well we've accepted them for years. You may or may not be able to view it depending on your browser. Thumbnails definitely don't work. I don't think we should encourage users to upload such files until they actually work properly on commons (With transcoding and thumbnails). Bawolff (talk) 08:55, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

It would be very kind of you, if you could try to create an improved (brighter!) version of this "own work" of you; is it possible that your screen is a mirroring one? ... (See also the Diskussion of that image.)
- My screen type has nothing to do with it. I didn't modify the colours of the original output of pngthermal.
- Among other things this means that you have the same possibilities as I have to alter or recreate that image. I've uploaded and linked the source file.
- But really, I don't understand what you're talking about. The brightest colour is already close to saturating the red channel. And what dark colours are there that you can't easily discern? Most areas are either very bright or uniformly dark blue: Except for that one dark blue colour, nearly all the pixels in the image have a luminance value of 176 or greater. Are we talking about the same file?..--Pink kitty111 (talk) 18:19, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
- I can somewhat follow your argumentation now. I can see how the darker red and black get close to the dark blue on the other end of the scale. But I can't see much of a problem in failing to accurately discern all shades of red: They are just shades of "bad" (compressionwise). But the problem is pretty theoretical and does hardly apply to the specific file at hand, does it?
- I thought about the colour choice, too. But I ended up being pretty satisfied with the choice. But just now I get the idea, that the pink/magenta range of the colour spectrum is not used and it might be a better choice to have the red run more into magenta than towards black. We can try and convince the author of pngthermal of the idea - but I don't see much relevance for the file at hand (yet?)...--Pink kitty111 (talk) 19:24, 13 April 2015 (UTC)
