Create higher-resolution versions of the details of The Ambassadors by Holbein[edit]

Article(s): w:The Ambassadors (Holbein)

These details of objects in the painting w:The Ambassadors (Holbein) are JPEGs cropped from a 30K pixel scan of the full painting; much higher resolution versions could be made by combining parts of the the nine tiled versions of the painting.
These images are extremely large and I don't know how to manipulate them myself. If possible the crops should be in PNG rather than JPEG so there is no quality loss from the tiles.
The ones linked in the request are just the images used in the English Wikipedia page; there are many more to fix in Category:Details of The Ambassadors (Holbein). Thanks! DemonDays64 (talk) 06:48, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Print damage on photos from 1980[edit]

Article(s): nl:Spetters

There is some marked development or printing damage on the face of the second person on the left on the first image, and some similar print damage on the side of the face on the second. I fear I would be too liberal with the cloning brush there. Milliped (talk) 17:34, 7 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you! Looks great! Milliped (talk) 20:39, 7 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Accurate colors request[edit]


Could someone fix the coloring on this photo and remove the watermark on the bottom left? The photo has a filter on it that blows out the whites and has inaccurate colors (look at the Ethiopian flag from bottom to top). Thanks.--Ue3lman (talk) 07:49, 18 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Sherlock Holmes Image[edit]

Crop and Remove Background, please. Languageseeker (talk) 03:13, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

✓ Done @Languageseeker: What exactly do you mean. After all, these images, with the exception of the first one just taken, already had cropped extracted copies with transparent backgrounds. PawełMM (talk) 08:34, 19 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Defense image retouching[edit]

Article(s): en:Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, en:List of United States Army three-star generals from 1990 to 1999, en:List of commanders of I Corps (United States)

Need colour correction for these images. These images either have too much yellow or too much blue (can't tell) and do not match higher quality Defense Department portraits of the 1990s. In particular, the portrait of LTG Waller, from the Lewis Army Museum website, comes from a series of official Army portraits with disjointed colouring (see the bottom part). That portrait needs that colour disjoint removed as well, and should ideally be [this type of colouring]. SuperWIKI (talk) 05:02, 21 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Adjust color to fix a harsh red color cast on this image[edit]

Article: en:Havasupai–Hualapai language

Would it be possible to fix this image's color cast? It also seems a little dark, like it is underexposed or the contrast is too high. --HenryMP02 (talk) 00:29, 25 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Santa Rosa[edit]

Blurring or blacking out the copyrighted advertisement right at the center, which violates COM:DW (image can be still usable even if it is blurred).--JWilz12345 (Talk|Contrib's.) 01:50, 6 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

improving the image resolution for a WWII photo[edit]

Article(s): en:Alesh Jermar

please, improve the image resolution for inclusion on Alesh Jermar's Wikipedia page
this ID serves as a service record of Alesh Jermar in a resistance organization in Czechoslovakia during WWII; it has historical value ... --BlissfulBlueLotus (talk) 19:12, 9 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Graphist opinion(s)

Hmmm... Where is the image to be improved? Link is broken, there aren't any images in named article, and I can't find anything with similar name. - Gabuxae (talk) 17:54, 10 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

It looks like it was deleted in mid-December (Commons:Deletion requests/Files uploaded by BlissfulBlueLotus). – Pbrks (t • c) 04:38, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
And after more than half-month posted here. There is definitely something wrong with requester's mind. I guess that can be {{Resolved}}? - Gabuxae (talk) 05:40, 12 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I am the contributor. I apologize, I am new to Wiki and still learning how to go about everything. Yes, this image was removed and I am trying to get it undeleted. I thought that File:AleshJermarVELA.jpg still exists within Wiki but it appears that I need to upload it again. Would I upload it again through the Wikimedia Commons into this request itself? Wikimedia Permissions considers undeleting this file but questions the resolution. I hope that perhaps you may be able to help with improving the image resolution. Please, let me know how to proceed. Thank you. BlissfulBlueLotus (talk) 16:05, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
You was told in Deletion Request linked here - Do not reupload unless you make/get permission, or you risk being blocked for repeated copyright violations. - Gabuxae (talk) 17:32, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. We have been working through the copyright issues with Wikimedia Commons Permissions. We thought that this Photo Lab may help us resolve the image clarity so that this document can be restored to the Wikipedia Page. Since I cannot reupload this image, are you able to access it from the deleted files yourselves? If not, how would I get this image to you? Please, let me know. BlissfulBlueLotus (talk) 18:39, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not admin, I can't access deleted files, and I'm not going to work on file which is not here yet. I believe resolution is questioned as evidence that this file is not really yours, so anthing I can do won't help. - Gabuxae (talk) 19:12, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you for your time and information. BlissfulBlueLotus (talk) 00:27, 15 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Clean up old newspaper cartoon[edit]

Article(s): en:Colonialism

It would be helpful if anyone could clean up the horizontal slice across this cartoon, which is presumably the result of damage to the original newspaper (or, alternately, find another version of this image, since Satterfield's work was published in many papers, but I don't really know how one could go about doing that). If, while one is repairing the slice mark, one could also make the overall page somewhat... cleaner, that would also be good, thanks. DS (talk) 18:48, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]
