Wrong Image and Right ImageEdit

Right use first, checking my watchlist found File:P52 recto.jpg had been replaced by User:Soerfm for color, crop - when the archivist at Ryland specified untouched image and approved on Commons by User:MichaelMaggs. I reverted the image to my upload of 2007. Since you gave access to my own Pope card, I will presume to become a bother not of Discordia but Chaos concerning a long-standing wrong image File:Matthew Paris - William Marshal.jpg. This image is of Richard Marshal, the son of William the Marshal (greatest knight whoever lived). On the talk page for w:William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke as early as 2011 the error was mentioned and nobody changed anything resulting in at least 48 pages that are mislabeled. Question is what happens globally if I replace image with inverted shield of William illustrated by same Matthew Paris with the same file name. It appears I could upload replacement with the different image of shield and epitaph and edit text to match. All captions on every use of new file would not match. I could change the en.wkipedia to fit but what about the other languages. This replacement would be to ease the embarrassment of the author under royal favor, Elizabeth Hallam-Smith CB, who confused the two Earl Marshals on p. 27 of Four Gothic Kings which I traced to the original upload (maybe 2005) referring to discussion on w:User_Talk:Athrash. I could re-enter the present mislabeled battle scene on w:Richard Marshal, 3rd Earl of Pembroke and other pages such as medieval horsemanship.

Hi. I am finding it difficult to understand your question, but perhaps a pointer: when in doubt, upload a separate image. It's considered very poor form to overwrite an image that isn't an unambiguously clear improvement (e.g. simple edit) of the base image especially if that image is in use on sister projects, and doing so (even more especially when that will likely render the captions incorrect) is likely to be considered vandalism. See COM:OVERWRITE. Cheers, Storkk (talk) 10:46, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I will upload new file under new name and forget courtesies to her honorable Companion of Bath, then find out how to nominate old file (erratum plain and simple) for deletion. - REAL TUBE  | Talk 16:52, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
@Realtube: If it's just the filename that's wrong, that can be fixed without a new upload... if the rename is unlikely to be at all controversial, you can use {{Rename}}. If it could be considered controversial by anyone, you can raise the point at COM:VP. Storkk (talk) 18:06, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
