Logo for Project:Graphics LabGraphics Lab/Photography workshop

The Graphics Lab is a project to improve the graphical content of the Wikimedia projects. Requests for image improvements can be added to the workshop pages: Illustrations, Photographs and Maps. For questions or suggestions one can use the talk pages: Talk:Graphics Lab, Talk:Illustrations, Talk:Photographs and Talk:Maps.
This specific page is the requests page for the photography workshop. Anyone can make a request for a photograph to be improved for a Wikipedia article. The standard format for making a request is shown below, along with general advice, and should be followed.

Advice to requesters

All requests:

  • Please make sure your request is "legitimate" by copyright. If the image(s) are in the public domain or freely licensed, you are fine. If the image(s) are "Fair use", there are only certain things we can do with them without falling afoul of Wikipedia's fair-use policies.
    • If you are requesting assistance with a copyright or fair-use image, don't display it on this page; place {{GLNF|Name.ext}} to create a link to it. Do not add the File: extension. Our fair-use policy does not allow displaying fair-use images out of their articles on ANY account.
  • Please check back regularly to see if progress has been made or if any additional questions needs to be answered before the request can be completed.
  • If a request is done to your satisfaction, please mark it with {{resolved}}.

SVG requests:

  • Make sure your request can actually BE vectorized. Note that vector drawings are not suitable for certain applications. We generally use SVG format for icons, logos, drawings, maps, flags, and such. Certain things, photographs especially, are totally impossible to vectorize.

Photography workshop: Tagged requests
Above are image requests that anyone can help with. These images are chosen from cleanup categories located at Wikipedia and Commons.

The blue requests that say "Not taken yet " are not being worked on by anyone. If you would like to take a blue request, edit this page and locate the gallery with the requests. Type your username in the taken by= parameter of the thumbnail caption in the gallery (excluding "User:") and save the page.

Once you finish the request, upload it, remove any unnecessary cleanup notices from that file's page and edit this page again. If the image was uploaded over an older version, type "done" (in all lowercase) in the new file= parameter. If the file was uploaded with a new name, add the new file name into the new file= parameter. See {{Gl request}} documentation for more information.

An archive is kept of previous Anonymous requests. A log has users listed by number of requests fulfilled. Feel free to share suggestions for future Anonymous requests.

Hebron Church[edit]

Hebron Church
I will be completing an article for Hebron Church within the next day or so, and would like to use these images as the main images. However, these images were taken in the shade. I was wondering if these images could be sharpened and lightened slightly so that the brick façade can be shown more clearly. Any improvements to these images would be of the utmost help! These images will also be used in the DYK nomination, so hopefully one of them will show on the front page! Thank you to the graphists for all your hard work and dedication. There are other images -- Caponer (talk) 15:36, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

@Caponer: Overall I find that these images are fine the way it is. Looking at the background, I could see that either the photo was overexposed or the clouds were very bright. I tried editing these images, tweaking specifically levels (I also tried brightness and contrast) and it made a little difference that IMO makes no difference. If you want a better image showing the brick facade see this on Flickr or his related uploads of the same church. ///EuroCarGT 21:50, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Thanks EuroCarGT! That image you found on Flickr is also on Wikimedia Commons. I just liked the two here because of their scale. Thank you for your edits! They indeed look great and I'll be finishing this article soon! Thanks again! -- Caponer (talk) 13:31, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Pedro I of Brazil[edit]

Pedro I of Brazil
This is highly detailed version of a portrait of Emperor Pedro I of Brazil. The problem is that it's not true to the actual portrait as you can see here, here and here. Could someone fix that? Please, do not overwrite the previous version. Create a new file for it. Thanks, -- Lecen (talk) 18:59, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
I checked out the images you posted, and I'm not seeing the difference. What exactly did you want changed? MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 22:03, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
The links meant to show difference aren't actually the same painting, at least in the first two cases. They aren't any evidence of problems whatsoever. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:33, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

Methodist chapel[edit]

Methodist Church of Great Britain
Please remove the red date from the bottom-right of the photograph. It is not important that the sign in the image should be readable, so feel free to blur the photograph slightly. -- HazhkTalk 11:59, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - Fallschirmjäger  17:02, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
That's the obvious solution (no photoshop skills needed there). I had assumed it would be very easy to remove the timestamp without just cropping the bottom of the image, but I guess since nothing important has gone from the image... Thanks. -- HazhkTalk 18:14, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry I'm not following you, I didn't crop the image, I removed only the timestamp in PS as requested? You sure you're seeing the latest version, may need to purge. Regards, Fallschirmjäger  22:46, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm really sorry, I didn't check closely! Yes, I see you have edited the timestamp out. Thanks very much!! And additional thanks for lightening the image. --HazhkTalk 23:17, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
No problem, your welcome :) Fallschirmjäger  00:22, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Crop request[edit]

New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene
Sugary Drinks Portion Cap Rule
Could someone please crop the building in the center? (As a new image.) I believe its Two Gotham Center, which seems to be the NYC Department of Health's main operations building, e.g., this is where they hold many meetings of the New York City Board of Health. Pretty please and thank you, as always. -- Int21h (talk) 21:16, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Alberta politician photos[edit]

Can anyone pull off the workaround described here, to get un watermarked images from a certain site [ex. [2] ]. I can't seem to get this to work there something I'm doing wrong, or have browser updates since then made it impossible to do? Planning on filling in some redlinks, but would prefer not to bog down this page with watermark removal requests. Connormah (talk) 23:55, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

  • Note: In the instructions below, this is text to look for and this is text to type.
I just gave it a shot and it worked just fine. What you have to do is change viewimage.aspx to getimage.aspx in the title bar and hit <Enter>. Leave the rest of the text in the title bar, including any slashes or periods alone. That should give you a page with a bunch of gibberish on it. On that page, click File -> Save Page As.... In the Save File dialog box that opens up, at the bottom there will be a field marked Save as type directly under the File name field. You want to set that to All Files (*.*) and then type [filename].jpg in the File name field, where [filename] is whatever you want to name it. Remember to type the .jpg part! After that, browse to where you save it and check it out. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 16:54, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
@MjolnirPants: - which browser are you using? My browsers won't let me save it as a jpg, that was the main problem. Connormah (talk) 07:12, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Firefox, here. As far as I know, both chrome and IE should let you do it as well, if you follow the steps above. The part about changing the file type is the most important. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 14:02, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
@MjolnirPants: - there doesn't seem to be that option for me. I keep getting dialogues saying that I cannot save in jpg. Are you on an older version of the browser? Connormah (talk) 14:37, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
Nope. 35.0.1 here. I'm not sure how that's not an option, are you on a linux or mac system? MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 16:11, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
This might help if you're on a windows machine.MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 16:39, 26 February 2015 (UTC)
@MjolnirPants: - I'm on a Mac - is there any way? (though I could use another computer to do this) Connormah (talk) 18:06, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────@Connormah: I'm not sure. The last time I used a mac was for 10 minutes, about 3 years ago. Sorry. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 21:12, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

I took a quick shot at it, and I have to say it looks rather ugly. Would it be acceptable to edit the logos out, instead? I've uploaded an example (revert if needed). MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 15:52, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
