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|Example.png|caption|align=left}} 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.

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.

Whiten more scans[edit]

A couple more scanned old illustrations that I would like to get whitened. This time I have left them just as they came through the scan, so the ink needs to be darkened too -- I figured it was best to leave the processing to someone who knows what they're doing.
