@ MjolnirPants: I had another crack at it to replace the colour without introducing magenta and green fur. Let me know what you think. nagual design 04:39, 24 February 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
I'm not sure. The blue and green in the fur looked like highlights and added some complexity to the image. But that's a subjective judgement. Objectively, the blue and green were artifacts from the lens flare (the green around the ears here shows this very well, and you can also see that this is true of the blue if you look carefully) so there's good reason to get rid of them; they're false colors. It looks a little flat to me right now, but in all honesty, it's for an encyclopedia, so it's probably better this way. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 14:20, 24 February 2016 (UTC) Reply reply

Please note that, as expected, Centpacrr has reverted the image back to his version with a pink background and multifaceted edge that looks like it's been cut out with a guillotine (and of course his signature 'agma' adjustment). I'm sure he does it to provoke a reaction but I haven't got the energy. If you're not happy with that then you'll have to tell him yourself. nagual design 17:45, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
You need to look more carefully sir. It was not "reverted" to an older image but is an altogether new version with the edges refined, the background set to 255-255-255, and the face of the coin cleaned up by removing multiple specks of dust, bits of lint, and other debris that you left on it,. I also removed the artificial drop shadow the you had added to it for some unknown reason. Sorry you didn't actually bother to look at the new file before assuming that it was something else. Please be more careful next time. Centpacrr ( talk) 18:43, 3 March 2016 (UTC). Reply reply
Actually your first version had a striped background and your latest was mostly #FEFEFE, but both rendered pink on Wikipedia. Go figure. I saw your flyspecking. It's a shame you have to mar decent, hard work like that with silly contrast adjustments, but the worst part was the edge. The request was basically to cut out the coin, and not only did you do a half-assed job of that part, but when I uploaded a smoothed copy you 'reverted' to having a multi-faceted edge, as though you don't give a fuck. I mean, get rid of the drop shadow by all means, but don't do it badly.
The drop shadow, if anybody's interested, is actually fairly standard with images of coins. There have been dozens of requests over the years to "remove the background" on pictures like this, and that generally means "make it look like the photo was taken on a plain/white background". I vaguely remember some discussion about this a few years ago and that's how they've been done since then - or at least how I've been doing them. Normally nobody objects, but CP is just getting pissy because he was offended the other day. First he begins refusing to sign his posts or whatever, next thing he's all obsequious, or sulking.

@ Nagualdesign: I think if the OP wants a drop shadow, they can ask for one. Common or not, not everyone is going to just assume a drop shadow will be added. Also, Centpacrr did remove some legitimate dust and scratches, and the contrast tweaks looked good, and didn't take anything away from the image.
Fair enough. nagual design 19:57, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
@ Centpacrr: You really need to start using quick mask instead of the polygonal lasso tool when you select elements in an image. I've seen you do it this way many times, and it looks bad every time. Also, when you remove dust & scratches, be sure not to remove actual details, as you did with this one. In addition, please color correct your monitor. What you apparently see as white looks like pink to the rest of us. Finally, use the damn {{ I take}} template! There's literally no reason not to, unless your intentionally trying to annoy people, which could get you blocked.
The current version is one I uploaded, taking inspiration from both of your edits. This fueding needs to end. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 19:27, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
MjolnirPants, please do not think that this is any sort of feud on my part. When somebody does a sloppy edit around here I'll likely redo it and/or tell them about it. Not just that, but sometimes people do good edits that I think I can improve upon, so I do. The problem is that Centpacrr cannot take any form of criticism or having his work 'overwritten', and I don't care much for people's egos, so we end up going through the same motions whenever CP does a poor edit. Most of the time I've learned to keep my lip buttoned and just do a better job of it, but when he turns it into a revert battleground I'm not going to remain silent. Since you have redone this image I'm going to assume that you agree with me on this occasion. If you can try to keep score I hope you'll see that I'm not the one being disruptive, and if it is me then please tune me in, but please don't imply that we're as bad as each other! nagual design 19:57, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
Pink background

Okay, if we can just put our differences aside for a moment I'd like to get to the bottom of the pink background. I have an inkling that this might be some sort of encoding issue. If I save a copy of either of Centpacrr's uploads then open them in Photoshop the background is definitely pink, but when the full-sized image is viewed in a browser it renders as pale gray. There are also a few stray blobs here and there and areas of pink, but I find it peculiar that the colours render differently. So, Centpacrr, may I ask what editing software you use? If it was Photoshop I'd suspect that it was a colour space issue. Basically, make sure you tick "Convert to sRGB" when you save jpegs. nagual design 20:25, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply

Photoshop CS5 Extended v12.0 x64 13" MacBook Pro (LED screen) OSX 10.6.8 All images saved as RGB jpg least compression (12); White background set manually to 255-255-255. Centpacrr ( talk) 20:37, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
I assume that by "set manually" you mean that you first made a selection and then used Fill > White (or Background color if that was set to white), which might suggest it was a selection issue. Had you used the magic wand, quick selection tool or similar I might suspect that some pixels were actually only partially selected, but it's obvious that in this case you used the polygonal lasso tool. I'm baffled as to how you could have introduced those artifacts, to be honest. The only thing I can think is that you used the brush tool and thought you were painting white when in fact you'd selected #FFFDFE, but that still wouldn't explain why it renders pink or grey depending on the software used. The only advice I can offer is, when it comes to working with pale tones tilting your screen back can help squeeze a little extra dynamic range out, so that you can easily see the difference between pure white and off-white. nagual design 21:11, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
I've just realized that you referred to the compression setting as "12", which suggests that you're using Save as.. (Shift+Command+S) to save your images. If that's the case I suggest you start using the Save for Web & Devices (Alt+Shift+Command+S) dialogue, which is much better at avoiding weird compatibility issues. And remember to tick Convert to sRGB. nagual design 21:22, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply

Otherwise known as "sRGB IEC61966-2.1"
However, this shouldn't cause a problem with a background colour set to 255-255-255. I'm wondering if the colour profile is actually corrupt / adjusted / tampered with. The profile creator being HP seems odd. A good version directly from ICC is the bottom one here. ( Hohum  @) 21:19, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
I still think this looks like a color calibration issue. I didn't notice any speckling or mottling; the background color on both versions Centpacrr uploaded was FFFDFE at every pixel I sampled. It's barely noticeable, but on my personal computer, you can just see the difference when compared to pure white. On my work computer, I can't see any difference (my work computer's monitor is not color calibrated). I'm guessing it wasn't the filling that was the problem, but the picking of what appeared to be pure white.
I also checked the other two versions, to see if it's a browser issue, but both of them display pure white at every pixel of the bg. MjolnirPants Tell me all about it. 21:30, 3 March 2016 (UTC) Reply reply
