Large image stitching[edit]

Article(s): en:William_Lambton and en:Great Trigonometrical Survey

Request
Need to tightly stitch 8 large map portions, will be nice if background white level is used to brighten up the faded paper - images at https://zenodo.org/record/3596441 --Shyamal L. (talk) 10:07, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
A word of warning: This will take a lot of effort to achieve, since the sections appear to have no overlap, and what you'll end up with will be a very unwieldy file. I recently made this hi-res map of the Perseverance rover landing site, which is 'only' 12,500px × 12,500px (~156 megapixels). Having made it, simply trying to upload it to Commons caused repeated crashes (in the end I used bigChunkedUpload), and unfortunately the file is almost useless due to many browsers hanging while attempting to download it, or not even bothering to try. I naively thought that people would be able to easily download, zoom in and pan around like they were using Google Maps. I can see now why map websites don't try to squeeze one massive image down the network connection. It's a silly idea. Although I do think that having such a complete map, as you're suggesting, might be a valued asset some time in the future, just not in 2021. nagualdesign 01:08, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
I understand the warning but the zoomify viewer, when it works (there is indeed a problem in that site at the moment), is quite useful and seeing some of these images in context is very useful. I have had excellent work on these lines done here such as File:Greenough_Geology_India_1855_(large).jpg. Shyamal L. (talk) 13:04, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm impressed that PawełMM managed to create such a large image with such a relatively small filesize (~93MB). I also copied the {{LargeImage}} template to the Perseverance rover location map, so thanks for that. However, when I tried to download the full-size image on my laptop I was treated to a black screen for approximately 50 seconds, followed by nothing but a small, white square in the centre of the screen. I don't want to put anyone off creating a stitched image, and the lower-resolution versions will be quite useful I suppose, I just wanted to make sure you understood the problems with very large images. nagualdesign 01:00, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
@Nagualdesign, Shyamal: I tried to do this. After merging the individual images into one, the resulting xcf file is over 1 gigabyte. An exact match is nearly impossible. Further work is refused by my computer as conversion to jpg causes it to hang. PawełMM (talk) 09:24, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
I suspect that my laptop would also struggle. The pdf file would be well over a gigabyte. nagualdesign 11:52, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
I think I have shifted to using a logical stitch / overlay using Wikimaps - https://warper.wmflabs.org/mosaics/13 Thanks for the inputs. Shyamal L. (talk) 06:16, 29 July 2021 (UTC)

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

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

Request
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)

    Remove background on coins[edit]

    Graphist opinion(s)

    ✓ Done PawełMM (talk) 07:10, 12 September 2021 (UTC)

    @PawełMM: thanks, but the images still have quite rough edges; could these be smoothed down a bit more? Additionally, it it possible to remove the background altogether (as in File:INC-1867-a Солид. Валент II. Ок. 375—378 гг. (аверс).png) or is that not possible in JPG format? GPinkerton (talk) 22:31, 12 September 2021 (UTC)
    @GPinkerton: I would not want to change anything in the coin images anymore. Blurring the edges spoils the image.To get the effect you require would require repeating all the work, and the expected effect is probably not worth it. In jpg format, unfortunately you can't remove the background as in the example given, because it doesn't support transparency. PawełMM (talk) 06:47, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
    @PawełMM: OK but there are obviously artificial corners and straight lines on the edges of the coins, as well as spots of colour in places on the background. GPinkerton (talk) 07:20, 13 September 2021 (UTC)
