Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Uncyclopedia:RadicalX's Corner?
Ketchup1

The prize for the highest quality image manipulation is a bottle of Heinz Special Ketchup.

Post images/concepts/ideas for images here before placing them on VFP or if you just want some advice on how to make them better.

Use {{reef|filename.ext|width in pixels|image name|caption|artist's username}}. Make sure you sign your comments with ~~~~.

  • Since some of the images on VFP are becoming of such low quality, it is proposed that this page be the equivalent of Pee Review for pictures.
  • If you think an image is good enough for VFP but needs some improvements or you simply want some advice on images, post them here and anyone who can be bothered will add some comments for improvement etc.
  • In general, follow VFP Guidelines before posting here. However we are not that bothered: one of the purposes of this page is to advise on suitability for VFP.
  • Please read HowTo:Get Your Image Featured before nominating your own image.
  • Also it would help if you suggest whether you plan to ultimately place the image on VFP.
  • Archives for this page: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.


Pro Tips

A simple procedure for producing professional quality composite images;-

  • Google...image...search
  • Get the GIMP. Like MSPaint, it's free. Unlike MSPaint, it doesn't suck.
  • Get a graphics tablet. 6"x9" tablets go for $100 and up. You wouldn't write a novel with a mouse, why would you draw a picture with one? A hundred bucks will save you hours of fighting poor ergonomics (mouse bad, pen good). Your wrist and fingers will thank you.
  • Use the highest-res source images that you can find. A 1000x1000 image eats RAM, but the end result will be superior to the same 'chop with 200x200 pixel source images.
  • Increase the size of your picture to 400% while working on it (if high-res source images aren't available).
  • Save often. Or, to put it another way, save often.
  • Always paste into an empty layer so you can tint and fade that layer to match the original.
  • Lowering the contrast can help blend the two layers.
  • Use an eraser set to low opacity to fade out the hard edges of anything you paste (dont over do it).
  • When you're happy with how it looks, collapse the layers, and add your new pic as a new layer over the original one, then use an eraser (set to low opacity) to rub out the top layer to reveal your modifications (This helps to blend the two pics).
  • Simple colors modifications can be done this way too (B&W etc).
  • When you're happy with how it looks, collapse the layers for the "final" version (be sure to save both a one layer image, for uploading to Uncyc, and a layered image, so that you don't have to start all over if you need to tweak it).
  • Use a despeckle/salt and pepper filter to pick out any hot pixels.
  • Sometimes a very small amount of blur works well at this point.
  • Reduce your pic to 400-600px (large enough, but not stupidly big). Don't save as GIF unless you really have to. GIFs sucks. JPG is better, but can suffer from bleeding/pixelation on high contrast areas. PNG is best. This is why no one ever uses that format.

So, I'm wondering if the image looks good, also, if funny. Also, I know the Sophia stuff is kind of old. Also, how is your day going? Woody On Fire! Wood burning Talking Woody Stalking Woody 17:21, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
I only know that it's potato because of the title. Otherwise, it just lookslike the roof is oddly coloured. If the potatoes stuck out more, it might work better. My day is going awesome. I took a big dump. Then I said, as I walked out of the restroom, "Wooh. Don't go in there for a while." I'm classy. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:01, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Maybe change the spires for french fries. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:06, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, changed the poatoes for now. Are they looking better? I think they look more contrasty (not sure if that's a word, but whatever). Tried the fry spires, but couldn't get them to look right at all. I might try them again, but If I do, I'll probably need to take a picture of a fry myself. Trying to find a good image of a fry is no fun. Woody On Fire! Wood burning Talking Woody Stalking Woody 19:54, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
It's still not potatoey. At best it's potatoish. Without context you wouldn't know what the joke was. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:10, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
Baby steps. It's better than the second cousin twice removed of potato it was earlier. Well, do you have any suggestions on how to make it look more potato-like? Woody On Fire! Wood burning Talking Woody Stalking Woody 20:14, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
I've given you all I have! I'm just one man! Woe! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:54, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
Woe is you indeed. Well, changed the spires a bit. But I'm not sure if I like them or not. Y? Woody On Fire! Wood burning Talking Woody Stalking Woody 20:45, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
At first I thought it was cheese. Hmm, I have the mental image of potatoes being all dark and dusty with spots and bits sprouting out - maybe make the domes a bit less geometrically correct by using the top half of some really out of shape unpeeled potatoes. Also, try having some full potatoes skewered on top of the spires for extra potatoeyness. Alternative: make the turrets crinkle cut crisps! Just a few suggestions, it's coming along pretty nicely. -- Hindleyite Converse 21:25, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I got cheese from the spires as well. It might just be that I need to get a new potato or two for this one. And thanks for the suggestions. Woody On Fire! Wood burning Talking Woody Stalking Woody 17:10, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, you might consider changing the whole building into brownish yellowish colors. If you want to make the potatoishness more obvious, you could change the dome to more accurately show the image of an authentic potato. You don't have to limit yourself to the boundaries of the real building, for instance the dome could reach higher and be slightly irregular.

Needs fineprint of some sort. Maybe make it as a box, and have that foil/bubble thing that pills have sliding out of it (but with cheerios instead of pills). And after that, which sounds hard to do, you can buy me a pony! Yay! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:45, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
All right, done that. How's it look? (That foil/bubble thing took a lot of effort for a novice like myself.

The person has no shadow, but the mule does. Freaky. Also, I think that you might have "women issues". Freaky. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:58, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd considered adding a shadow, but then I realised that, if you'd look closely, the person is on top of a hill, and the mule's shadow is both small and behind him, meaning there's no need for a shadow because it's on the other side of the hill. And I don't have "women issues", it's just a play on swear words. Sir Not A Good Username360 Stress KUN 20:52, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Like, I get the meaning of this image (as explained by the caption), but the image itself doesn't really fit the description. Is there some way of showing the sleeping dog's ownership of the mule? Perhaps if the mule had a leash that the dog was holding. Also, the dog doesn't look very doglike. I think this image has real potential, but the current execution of the idea is a bit lacking. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 21:49, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
I know the dog doesn't look the donkey's owner, but I couldn't find an approriate image of a dog reared up as if riding on the donkey... perhaps if I were to find such an image, it'd be better... I'll troll around GIS, see if I can find one. Also, what do you mean the dog doesn't look "dog-like"? Sir Not A Good Username360 Stress KUN 22:51, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
There you go. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:15, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Alright, I've fixed most of the problems... how is it now? Sir Not A Good Username360 Stress KUN 00:47, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks great except the dog looks really out of place. It also doesn't look like the dog could possibly be alive. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 01:19, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
IT'S... ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sir Not A Good Username360 Stress KUN 02:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree that the dog doesn't look right yet. The link Modus gave has some promising options. I think your best bet would be to use a different dog altogether and make him look like he is actually in the saddle. --Dame Sonjesig.pngCherry-blossom.gif 14:51, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

This is your Tigger on Drugs

I nomm'ed this for feature because I thought it was worthy. Apparently, it wasn't funny enough. So now I'm doing what I should have done first, get it reviewed. I was told that Tigger's euphoric state conflicted to much with the "This is your Tigger on Drugs" message and it looked to much like a Phish fan's bumper sticker. What do you think?
