I uploaded File:Basic outpatient TMS setup.jpg on commons to be used in Transcranial magnetic stimulation. There's several pictures of coils but none of the actual setup. Could somebody please add it? I'm blocked. Thanks.

Technophant No, that's called proxy editing. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 13:59, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
User:Chrissymad, 'Wikipedians in turn are not permitted to post or edit material at the direction of a banned editor (sometimes called proxy editing or proxying) unless they are able to show that the changes are either verifiable or productive and they have independent reasons for making such edits.' I'm not trying to edit war by proxy. This is obviously a positive contribution. Please wp:ignore all rules or at least this rule and find an appropiate place for the image. Thank you. ~Technophant (talk) 14:19, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
If that was a high-quality image of a subject needing illustration, I would have ...independent reasons for making such edits. However, File:Basic outpatient TMS setup.jpg is not a high quality image. It is blurry, and MOS:IMAGE states that such images are not encyclopedic and shouldn't be used. --AntiCompositeNumber (Ring me) 14:27, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
It's somewhat blurry, but adequate for use at lower resolution. I tried to remove the blur with freeware but haven't been able to. Since there's no other image that's similar it could be used until another image is created. Basically, I'm trying to contribute. I have tremors and most of my images have quite a bit of blur despite my best efforts to hold the camera still. Somebody with photoshop should be able to fix this. Edit: I've asked at Village Pump for help deblurring it. Will update if fixed. ~Technophant (talk) 14:50, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
Hey Techno if you use a stand and timer that will get rid of the blur. Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:20, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
