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.

Cropping a non-free image[edit]

1947 NZ Test team
Colin Snedden
Don Taylor (cricketer)
Brun Smith
Roy Scott
Ces Burke
Tom Burtt
Would it be possible for someone to make a cropped version of the team photo for each of these six individuals to serve as the primary means of identification in the stand-alone written about them. The cropped versions would have to comply with WP:NFCCP and be licensed accordingly. -- Marchjuly (talk) 04:38, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

X mark.svg Oppose IMHO the original picture is in all too small resolution to do that sensible. PawełMM (talk) 10:36, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

Background cleanup please[edit]

Fannie Nampeyo
Please remove the display-case clutter. Matching the deep blue BG nice but not required ;-] -- Pete Tillman (talk) 01:09, 21 February 2017 (UTC)

DK64 N64[edit]

Donkey Kong 64
Would it be possible to get a version of this photo without the background? If the shadows aren't necessary, they can be removed too. The intent is to show the promotional color of the product. It would be fine to Photoshop out/over the controller ports. czar 22:42, 4 March 2017 (UTC)

Image is too dark[edit]

Huffman House (Newport, Virginia)
Sun was right behind the house when I took the photo; it really could do with a better light balance. -- Nyttend (talk) 23:35, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
