Got a spare minute? The Archives need some love. See the to-do list to find a way to help.
If you upload a new image make sure you name and categorize it properly. If in doubt, ask an admin or see our FAQ page.
Hi, I'm trying to upload an image but it's telling me I don't have permission to create a new page. The image I'm trying to upload is a formula to replace the formula currently on a page (I've made the formula a bit clearer). What do I do? Thanks - unsigned comment from Albigatin (talk • contribs)
- You have to be autoconfirmed in order to upload images. You can edit pages such as fixing spelling mistakes and adding in missing summaries. In the future, it would be best to ask me on my current talk page instead of the ones I archived. Pattyman (talk) 23:11, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
anipng over 2MB
I am trying to get an animation of the thunderstorm in BW (from Tornadus/Thundurus roaming), but I can't get anything useful into a file under even 3 MB - fully optimized - even at 30 fps due to the high detail. Is it ok to have that large a file size? I know I would have to have you or someone other staff upload it. Jdthebud (talk) 06:19, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
- I don't think I'll be able to upload that image (sorry), as I tried uploading other images over 2 MB but they didn't work. You can ask a Senior Administrator or higher if they could do it. Pattyman (talk) 23:50, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
I uploaded an English version of File:Pokéwalker battling.png, exactly as I found it here (image) (except for trimming it and making it a png). That image had a gray tint, not unlike the Pokewalker's screen. Abcboy is expressing concern about the battle image's colors matching the other image on the Pokewalker page, which likely came from here, where the images do indeed use pure black and white. If you ask me, though, that's a fairly trivial concern (heck, they'll still be in different languages either way...). As something of a purist, I just don't think the image should be essentially altered from how it was found. My problem is, I don't know if the Archives have any rules or anything about this. So I bring the question to staff: is the whitened image OK? Tiddlywinks (talk) 04:14, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
- To me, it isn't much of a big deal with the gray tints on the Pokéwalker screen images, its not like they're blurry or anything. However, since a majority of the English version ones have the grayish background, it should be kept that way, and the Japanese ones keep the white background. The Archives do have a rule regarding drawing on images, as they should be left the way it is instead of drawing on them. Pattyman (talk) 04:41, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
- Just an addendum, was trying to keep it consistent not only with that image, but also with images like Category:Pokéwalker route images and File:Pokéwalker Settings.png. But I understand, the images should be kept the same as when they came from the official source. --Abcboy (talk) 22:19, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
