When categorising files, please avoid placing them into several categories that are directly linked within the same tree (e.g. a parent category and a child category – like Category:United Kingdom and Category:London), to prevent over-categorization of files and over-population of categories. Usually, only the most specific category should be used. See Commons:Categories for more details. Thank you.

This is what you did for images in Category:Picton, Ontario. Since this category is already part of Category:Prince Edward County, Ontario, you don't need to add this latter category to the images. Thanks. --P 1 9 9   21:06, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Glock 17 in Holster MOD 45154999 02.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too.

Cropping imagesEdit

Thanks for the thanks. By way of information for the future, when you want to crop an image I suggest you use the CropTool that can be activated in your commons Preferences, under Gadgets. The CropTool will then appears in the left side of your screen. It saves everyone a lot of time because it transfers all the correct and appropriate information into the cropped image, such as source, licence, author, etc. It even leaves a backlink to the original and visa versa. That way all the proper information is there and does not need to be manually reviewed by volunteers. It really saves a lot of time and frustration in the first place, so try the CropTool next time. Good luck. Ww2censor (talk) 17:37, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

Many thanks for the tip. I have activated the crop tool and taken it for a test drive. It will obviously be very useful. Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 18:05, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
This would also help in uploading new versions - I'm always a bit hesistant myself when cropping anything inside the image itself (that is, aside from a black lining etc). It doesn't hurt to have two versions of the same image anyway.
On a separate note, when you uploaded a new version of [[:File:Philip-jos-farmer.jpg}this]] image, you noted it was in the public domain. I suppose that was a mistake, or am I overlooking something? Effeietsanders (talk) 14:06, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
Hello Effeietsanders -- You're right on both points. (1) A CC-licence gives away a lot, but does not go so far as to put an image into the public domain, and it was sloppy of me to say that. (2) I should stop taking shortcuts and upload separate, adapted versions of CC-licenced originals. I suppose even my intrusively-modified Philip Jose Farmer image would be unobjectionable if I uploaded it as a new, separate image (or am I still wrong?). Thanks for keeping me honest. -- WikiPedant (talk) 06:14, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

When creating a cropped and reduced version, as you did with this image, please save it as a separate file. Thanks. — WFinch (talk) 04:14, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Hello WFinch -- I try to do this for any image I consider to be archival, but I honestly didn't regard this image as archival. In any case, I see you've already done the heavy lifting. Thanks. -- WikiPedant (talk) 04:44, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Progressive jpegsEdit

Hello, just an FYI. I notice that some of the jpegs you're uploading (Charlton Heston for example) are interlaced/progressive. C:Help:Progressive says not to use this type of jpeg. (Hohum @) 16:18, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads-up. I don't care for progressive jpegs myself, but don't always check. I'll look back through some of my recent uploads and replace any that need fixing, and I'll be careful about this in the future. Thanks again. -- WikiPedant (talk) 16:38, 13 August 2017 (UTC)
PS: I see what happened. I recently installed Ubuntu and have been a newbie user of GIMP for a couple of weeks. But it turns out that GIMP has "progressive" set as the default format for saving JPEGs. The default is fixed now and I've have retrieved all the GIMP-manipulated images I recently uploaded. I'll fix and re-upload them over the next couple of days. Thanks again for catching this. -- WikiPedant (talk) 20:11, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

working on jpegsEdit

Hello WikiPedant, thank you for contributing to our projects! I set your user status to autopatrolled. Just a hint: If one crops or adjusts a given jpeg image it is not helpful to increase the jpeg compression quality when storing it. The image won't become better but bigger thereby. Better store it keeping the previously given compression value (90% or whatever it is). Regards, --Achim (talk) 18:27, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Hello @Achim: Thanks. You're right, some of my recent uploads needlessly have bigger sizes than the originals. When I started using GIMP a few months ago, I wasn't sure what to expect so I set the value to 100% just to play it safe. I'll take more care with image sizes in the future. Thanks again. -- WikiPedant (talk) 22:31, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

File:Meet_Taylor_Mason_(Asia_Kate_Dillon)_Billions_Season_2.jpgEdit

This was nice! Thank you! Can you tell me what you did, or point me to a tutorial or something? I'd love to be able to do that. --GRuban (talk) 16:16, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Hello @GRuban: Thank you. I really didn't do much to this one, just a couple basic Photoshop adjustments: to "levels" and "sharpness". Photoshop takes a while to learn, but the basics come fairly naturally. Just start with the basics. You can find tutorials, of widely varying quality, on YouTube. A lot of the learning is just through trial and error -- Work with temporary copies of images and be prepared to ruin lots of them. Two words of advice: (1) Photoshop gives the most reliable results and (2) don't overdo the adjustments. -- WikiPedant (talk) 18:53, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
It was literal Photoshop, not GIMP? --GRuban (talk) 22:26, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
Actually, this one was GIMPed. The "levels" and "sharpen" functions are similar in both. But for other functions, like color management, GIMP is distinctly inferior. I would definitely recommend Photoshop over GIMP if you're just starting fresh to learn this stuff. -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:58, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

File:Thomas Thieme.jpgEdit

Hello WikiPedant. You cut off Thieme's right shoulder. There were a few centimeters on the right side of the picture that were superfluous, but cutting into his body like this to create a hovering face unrelated to it's surroundings was not called for, I think. I made the picture. It did not cross your mind to ask me before mutilating it... Best regards, --Gereon K. (talk) 15:04, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Hello @Gereon K.: I didn't mutilate anything. For better thumbnail display, I tightened the framing to a conventional portrait format. And I adjusted the levels to dial down the overexposed skin tones in harsh sunlight. But I have no problem with restoring your version and uploading mine as a separate image, which I have now done. Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 22:03, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Hello WikiPedant. I was not complaining about dialing down of the overexposure. Thank you for that. I just did not like the cutting off of one arm. The picture was made in the open in a filming break I had with him, so there is no need to pretend that it was a portrait situation. --Gereon K. (talk) 22:14, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

Help Cropping/Adjusting an ImageEdit

Would you be able to help crop this recent image from the commons;

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:IWoods.png

It would be of much help.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Black BIC Ballpoint (talk • contribs) 18:07, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
@Black BIC Ballpoint: Sure, done. I like this image. Not everyone may agree with my converting it to greyscale, though. Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 05:58, 19 August 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, WP, If able, I have a few more that I need help cropping and what not; they would entail the following and please help this when you can do so because it would be a big help:

Thanks so much in advance and thanks again for helping out with Ms. Woods picture (it came out so beautiful!)

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Black BIC Ballpoint (talk • contribs) 22:33, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
@Black BIC Ballpoint: I enjoy this sort of thing (and it's nice to work with well-made images like these), so I'll take them up in the reasonably near future. I'm not quite sure what to make of the non-standard notations following the copyright symbol on the Beverly Michaels and Donna Reed pictures, though. The images were obviously made long before 1977, but that doesn't necessarily mean that there aren't still valid copyrights on them. Anyhow, I'll adjust them and let someone else worry about that (if someone else comes along with such worries). -- WikiPedant (talk) 04:26, 20 August 2019 (UTC

Thanks for the help, WikiP; I have 2 more for you; This one of actress Vera Miles for her 90th birthday on August 23 which I've presently uploaded; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:VeraM.jpg

Nancy Walker finally, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:NancyWalker.gif (The top part could be cropped out and I'm sure once you'll see it you may think of other things I haven't)

Please help crop/adjust when able, thanks so much! You're awesome!

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Black BIC Ballpoint (talk • contribs) 00:15, 23 August 2019 (UTC)
@Black BIC Ballpoint:. You certainly have found some fine images, created by very capable studio photographers using those wonderful old-time large format cameras. I replaced the Nancy Walker image with a better one from the web (the distortion of the original version was caused by inaccurate aspect ratio -- the ratio of width to length -- which made her face far too narrow). I'm not going to touch the images of Vera Miles and Janet Blair. The Miles image has a clear, properly formatted copyright notice and the Blair image appears to bear one too (although the resolution leaves the text at the bottom of the image less than clear). Regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:17, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

Thank you WP for helping (I understand about Vera and Janet, I didn't even look that close for that tagline like you did). I have a new one I uploaded today that I'm sure you can help with in honor of Laraine Day;

It looks as this, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LDiHM.jpg

I hope you can help her out; it would look 10 times better without the borders plus the yellow-gray scale. Thanks so much!

WP, when LD is over, I have a new one for you that I think you'll just love; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:GaleStorm.jpg If there is anyway you might be able to crop and or make it a little bit brighter that be wonderful. Thanks and have a wonderful week!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 17:25, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: No need to butter me up. I'm retired, so life is just one big long weekend now. I'm old enough to remember some of these celebs. And I like doing this sort of thing anyway. We make a pretty good team -- you find them and I touch 'em up. -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:26, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, I'm glad too hear that; I found more for you too work on this weekend if able.

Here they are; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:McClahananWink.jpg It needs cropping all the way around

This one will be fun for you; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RogerMobleyRobertSorrellsJamesDalyTOSB.jpg The cropping for this one will mostly bring it down to just the head shots for Roger Morbley and Robert Sorrells since they don't have any lead headshots like James Daly does. If there is a way of making this file more than one too accomplish that that would be great. It wouldn't make sense having all 3 of them in the same photograph for a lead headshot anyway so I'm sure you'll find a way of making these work.

Thanks much!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 01:39, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: All done. I created the individual pages for Mobley and Sorrells here at Commons rather than at Wikipedia. If you check their Wikipedia articles you'll see that I've replaced the original group image with the new individual images from Commons. -- WikiPedant (talk) 06:46, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

Here's a new one for you; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:EHADPW.jpg It's unique because all thought there's no trimming involved to my eye it looks a little dark Earl and Angie coming from the waist up. Do you think it could be enhanced with a little more brightness so the faces and overall aren't real darkish? I'll let you be the judge of this new one. Either way, I'm grateful for the teamwork (as always).

@Black BIC Ballpoint: This is an example of available-light photography, which is a bit unusual for studio publicity shots. Here, the available light is harsh outdoor sunlight and the photographer, perhaps unwisely, posed the subjects squinting into that strong sunlight. The result is slits for eyes and harsh shadows on the face and in the eye sockets. I dialled down some of that shadowing, but there are limits -- overdoing it produces an image with a distinctly phoney quality. And no matter what, people squinting into the sun still look like they're squinting into the sun. -- WikiPedant (talk) 05:50, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

So true; I'm glad for the tweek anyway it does look a little better.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 11:49, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Here's some more too; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MontgomeryClift.jpg If that could be cropped a bit and more centered that be good and I also have this one; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:YvonneDC.jpg Is it possible too crop off a little of that left and make her more centered for this being her new lead shot?

Here's another; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:JuneTravis.jpg

Just needs general crop with adjusts/brightness

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Black BIC Ballpoint (talk • contribs) 21:34, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

I hope we can do good with these two and I'm glad you think of us as a team. It's a wonderful compliment.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 21:25, 7 September 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: OK, Montgomery Clift, June Travis, and Yvonne De Carlo are all cleaned up. Three more very nice finds by you.
Note: It would be better, BICster, if you uploaded photos that are clearly in the public domain directly to Wikimedia Commons rather than to Wikipedia. Any photo file link in Wikipedia (in an infobox or elsewhere) will still work (Wikipedia always checks in Commons if a file isn't found in Wikipedia's own photo collection). And the categories you've been adding, which generally do not exist in Wikipedia (and thus show as redlinks), will usually already exist in Commons (and thus show as bluelinks). Also, photos on file in Commons can be used in any of the other wikis in any language, so, after a while, they tend to find their way into lots of wikis to be appreciated by readers all over the world. And, also also, sometimes it's a little more convenient to work on photos (cropping, etc) when they are located in Commons rather than in Wikipedia. Give it a try. -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:46, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

Oh, thanks for fixing those and I'll make a mental note in the future. At the moment, I have a new one that I found for you too see, have, and enjoy doing; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:JaneGreer.jpg In future, I'll be sure to upload in the Commons here that there wouldn't be an issue. I hope you'll take pleasure in this one and (as always) I look forward too our next collaboration whenever that might be.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 21:47, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: Jane Greer is done. I also moved this image to Commons, where there already is a "Jane Greer" category. (I'm not a regular file mover, though, and find this task a bit too much of a pain in the neck to make a habit of.) Till next time . . . WikiPedant (talk) 23:33, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing Andrea King. It turned out great. When your time permits, would it be possible for you too help me move this file into the commons for Earl Holliman; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:EHinWC.jpg I see the others there but this one.

@Black BIC Ballpoint: I activated a file exporting tool that semi-automates the process and was playing with it a bit, moving some of our previous images, but I missed that one of Earl H. It's moved now. If you spot any more, just let me know. With this exporting software, it's a fairly simple task. For now -- WikiPedant (talk) 05:45, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

And this of Jack Elam; https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:JackElam.jpg Perhaps crop the top, make it more centered, and do you think a little brighter is possible? Same as always, I'll let you be the judge.

Finally, this of Janis Paige; https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Janis_Paige_by_Clarence_S._Bull,_1944.jpg

If it can be cropped down to a sort of headshot that be great.

— Preceding unsigned comment added by Black BIC Ballpoint (talk • contribs) 00:22, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks in advance!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 23:02, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

OK, all done. (1) I think I deserve a minor public service award for removing that atrocious green border from the shot of Holliman and (a very young-looking) Anne Francis. (2) The Jack Elam photo was trimmed a bit on 2 sides to improve the composition, but it's a lower resolution image so there are reasonable limits to how much smaller one can make it. I lightened up some of the harsh shadowing, but shadowing sort of works with Elam since he played rugged and often villainous types. (3) The Janis Paige shot was good fun, since it needed to be rotated and cropped a lot and then some missing background drawn in (tilted shots like that are seldom effective -- looks the photographer was drunk or the subject is supposed to a psycho). I uploaded the modified version as a separate file, since the image was so extensively changed and then put the modified version in the infobox at Wikipedia's Janis Paige entry. You come up with truly high quality images! This really is fun. -- WikiPedant (talk) 05:41, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

I found a new one for you; 1. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DeweyMartin.jpg 2. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PeggyLEE.jpg 1) Think it might be possible to adjust it to a nice headshot since the turtle-neck is so frumpy? The tone good as is or could be a little brighter? Per tradition, I'll let you be the judge. 2) Cropping and whatever else is needed from your perspective. Have a good day!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 17:26, 21 September 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: Done and done. I uploaded a separate, cropped, version of the Dewey Martin image, with some selective adjustment to the exposure levels, for you to use as you see fit. Personally, I think the original full upper-body portrait of him may be a more effective representation of his persona -- It's well composed and captures his masculinity. In any case, both images show the turtleneck. (Hey, back in the 60s I sometimes wore dorky turtlenecks like that!) Dewey Martin was in one of my favorite old Howard Hawks westerns -- The Big Sky (1952). Those were the days. -- WikiPedant (talk) 04:04, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

That's awesome!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 13:57, 22 September 2019 (UTC)

Mostly general cropping and adjusting; will let you be the judge as always if additional lighting is needed.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 12:53, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: Another great find, BIC-meister. By far the highest-quality image of Jayne Meadows on Commons. I reworked it a bit. But I've never cared for the photographic affectation of tilting the subject to a precarious angle, so I created a more heavily manipulated extracted version (which I prefer) in which I corrected the vertical alignment and also did a little retouching:

@Black BIC Ballpoint: OK, moved this one to Commons (File:JeffDonnell.jpg) and touched up a few specks and spots (didn't need much IMO). The original image is still sitting in Wikipedia's photo collection, but it is flagged for deletion and someone with appropriate authority will likely remove it shortly. (I can copy a file from Wikipedia, but can't delete one.) -- WikiPedant (talk) 19:46, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

WP, when able, could you transfer these files to the commons (I totally forgot about);

And, I found a few new pics for you too play with;

Have a good day and will talk later on!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 22:48, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

I found some new pictures;

This one of is of Glynis Johns (in honor of her and her 96th birthday tomorrow);

These 2 of her as well which I did here on commons;

Thanks!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 18:28, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: -- All done. I didn't know that Glynis Johns was still with us. Well done, Glynis! -- WikiPedant (talk) 06:03, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

Here is a new one, I uploaded just now;

Per tradition, I'll let you tweek/adjust whatever you feel is fit--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 19:41, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

I found one more for you;

That's all for now; have a good week!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 13:31, 6 October 2019 (UTC)

Here's a new one, I came across;

Have a nice day!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 09:35, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: -- This is another nice, old-time image. I removed a couple specks, but am not inclined to make any other changes. The framing and sepia tint look good to my eye. Best regards -- WikiPedant (talk) 23:21, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

I found some new ones for you.

Look forward too the outcome when you're able.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 23:53, 16 October 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: -- Earl's looking better all the time. Note: In the case of File:EARLHOLLIMANforPW.jpg, you didn't grab the largest version of the image available on the external site (I fixed it). BICster, keep an eye peeled for that. Best -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:59, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, WP. Yes, I agree, Earl does look better all the time; he's awesome.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 11:42, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

I found 2 new ones for you;

I hope you'll enjoy this one. Have a nice day.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 14:52, 19 October 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: -- For differing reasons, I don't see any reason to fiddle with these two. (1) The B&W shot is a gorgeous portrait that is technically excellent IMO. (2) The hand-colored shot, like so many of these shots from the 30's and 40's, is unnatural and pretty much impossible to make more natural. It is what it is, but I dislike the fact that in these shots, people tend to end up not looking entirely like themselves. -- WikiPedant (talk) 04:48, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
@Black BIC Ballpoint: -- Changed my mind about image #1. I didn't change it, but added a separate, cropped version to use in the infobox of her Wikipedia article. -- WikiPedant (talk) 03:24, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Help Adjusting/Cropping Images (New Section)Edit

Wiki,

I found some new pics for you that need your help; you'll enjoy this beauties;

These 3 might be a bit of a challenge but if you can bypass the watermarks and what not it is worth a shot (if not no biggie; all the ones in the first list above will be fine/dandy):

I hope this will be to your liking and give you some enjoyment in the doing. Until next time. Here is a new one I found;

Hope you're doing well, it's been a few days know and I'm surprised not in hearing from you and seeing your adjustments on our traditional photo finds from yesteryear. I hope you'll be back in your groove again and that you're happy-healthy. Hope too hear/see your pic touches soon.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 20:02, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

Here's a new one of Earl Holliman;

Just needs cropping-adjusting and a touch of brightness.

Will catch up with you later and hope you'll be back soon.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 21:07, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: Not to worry. I'm just a bit busy right now. But I'll chip away at them. Lots of interesting stuff here. -- WikiPedant (talk) 00:19, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Oh, good, I'm glad. I look forward too the outcome of all these in good time. I hope you'll have fun with them and once these are done I'll see if I can find you some more. Will catch up.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 00:40, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Here's one I have that I forgot too add to the above list:

Will talk soon.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 01:04, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: I'll skip the 3 watermarked images. There is some software to help remove watermarks, but doing a really good job can be quite time consuming. And I'm pretty satisfied that these images are not good candidates for use in Wikipedia, anyway. Earl's article is sufficiently well illustrated IMO and I don't like to invest effort in images that are unlikely to have much usage. -- WikiPedant (talk) 02:55, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

Oh, that's fine; I figured it be worth a shot but at least I found you other goodies that can be easily done with not so much time consumption. Plus, in the first row, I found some Earl's (himself and with others) that are gems and will look good once their get a tweeked. Yes, I agree, Earl does have good imagery for his (goodness knows the only reason, I did so much of him is because he's bar-none my #1 favorite actor). I'm glad your chipping away is working out good so far (Audrey and Richard turned out JUST BEAUTIFUL!). I look forward too seeing what more you'll prove with the rest of the lists-names and sometime next week per promise I'll see if I can find you a little more. Will talk later and I look forward too the rest of the outcomes.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 12:29, 25 October 2019 (UTC)

When you have time this week, after Virginia Field and Virginia Mayo are completed, I have some new ones for you too play with:

Have a good week and a Happy Halloween on Thursday. Will catch up later on.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 19:47, 31 October 2019 (UTC)

Happy November! Too kick off the month, I came across a couple pics for you. This is what I got:

As always, I'll let you takes these and judge on how they ought to be taken. I hope you'll like them. Will talk another time.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 16:33, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

When you return, WP, could you please help transfer this file too the commons; it's not in here yet for whatever reason,

Thank you!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 13:49, 5 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi, WP, Here's 2 new ones;

Have a good one!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 13:51, 9 November 2019 (UTC)

I found a few new pics for you to play with when time permits:

Have a good week!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 18:28, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: I'm getting a bit reliant on you for all these nice images, BBB. I've always had a fondness for old Sterling Holloway, who did Disney voices when I was a kid and also (somehow, this has always stayed with me) played an eccentric inventor in a 1950's Superman TV episode, where he cooked up an artificially intelligent very 1950's computer named "Mr. Kelso". Way before your time, I'm sure. Thanks again for the good stuff. -- WikiPedant (talk) 05:27, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

I'm glad too hear you say that. It makes me feel good knowing I can bring you some enjoyment in the format. That episode of Superman with SH was indeed LONG before my time but I do recall seeing it once in reruns and I agree it was fun watching. I have a new one for you:

If it's possible too redo it and make a separate file with just a headshot too be used in her Wiki article that'll be fine. Per tradition, once I place it in your hands I'll let you judge what should or shouldn't be done with it. Catch you later!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 19:15, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

@Black BIC Ballpoint: OK, I put an extracted version out there for you to use in the article if you wish. It's not a headshot, but it's about as tightly framed as I think I can go, given the resolution of the original. (Hmm, maybe the cropped version is a little too low-res. Do you want me to back off a bit on the crop?) -- WikiPedant (talk) 01:39, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

It came out great; the crop came out good!--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 09:18, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

I found this one too;

Hope you'll enjoy it.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 00:06, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Help Adjusting/Cropping Images (Section 3)Edit

Here's is a new one;

I think it may need some cropping at the side and perhaps above head too make it more centered. I'll let you decipher. Will talk later.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 13:50, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

(Perhaps a bit of bright since it looks a tad dark?)--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 16:21, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Find below a list of goodies, I found for you featuring The First Lady of Song:

Second Row (In Honor of another Famous Jazz Artist):

Third Row:

Fourth Row:

Fifth Row:

Sixth Row:

Seventh [AND FINAL] Row:

These ought too keep you occupied for the next week (if not 2). These are all gems and I know you'll enjoy having them. I'll catch up with you after Thanksgiving, if I should find anymore pics that I think you'll enjoy. I hope you'll enjoy tweeking these pics later on. Have a good one and happy re-imaging.--Black BIC Ballpoint (talk) 16:21, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
