Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates

This star, with one point broken, symbolizes the featured candidates on Wikipedia.

Featured pictures are images that add significantly to articles, either by illustrating article content particularly well, or being eye-catching to the point where users will want to read its accompanying article. Taking the adage that "a picture is worth a thousand words", the images featured on Wikipedia:Featured pictures should illustrate a Wikipedia article in such a way as to add significantly to that article, according to the featured picture criteria.

Promoting an image

If you believe an image should be featured, create a subpage (use the "For Nominations" field, below) and add the subpage to the current nominations section.

For promotion, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers in support and the consensus is in its favor, it can be added to the Wikipedia:Featured pictures list. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator and/or creator of the image; however, anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets.

All users may comment. However, only those who have been on Wikipedia for 25 days and with at least 100 edits will be included in the numerical count. If necessary, decisions about close candidacies will be made on a case-by-case basis. Nominations started in December are given three extra days, due to the holidays slowing down activity here.

The archive contains all opinions and comments collected for candidate nominations and their nomination results.

If you nominate an image here, please consider also uploading and nominating it at Commons to help ensure that the pictures can be used not just in the English Wikipedia but on all other Wikimedia projects as well.

Delisting an image

A featured picture can be nominated for delisting if you feel it no longer lives up to featured picture standards. You may also request a featured picture be replaced with a superior image. Create a subpage (use the "For Delists" field, below) and add the subpage to the current nominations section.

Please leave a note on the talk page of the original FPC nominator (and creator/uploader, if appropriate) to let them know the delisting is being debated. The user may be able to address the issues and avoid the delisting of the picture.

For delisting, if an image is listed here for ten days with five or more reviewers supporting a delist or replace, and the consensus is in its favor, it will be delisted from Wikipedia:Featured pictures. Consensus is generally regarded to be a two-third majority in support, including the nominator. Note that anonymous votes are generally disregarded, as are opinions of sockpuppets. However, images are sometimes delisted despite having fewer than five in support of their removal, and there is currently no consensus on how best to handle delist closures, except that:.If the image to be delisted is not used in any articles by the time of closure, it must be delisted. If it is added to articles during the nomination, at least one week's stability is required for the nomination to be closed as "Kept". The nomination may be suspended if a week hasn't yet passed to give the rescue a chance.

Outside of the nominator, all voters are expected to have been on Wikipedia for 25 days and to have made a minimum of 100 edits. If necessary, decisions about close candidacies will be made on a case-by-case basis. As with regular nominations, delist nominations are given three extra days to run if started in December.

  • Note that delisting an image does not mean deleting it. Delisting from Featured pictures in no way affects the image's status in its article(s).
Step 1:

How to comment for Candidate Images

  • Write Support, if you approve of the picture. A reason is optional.
  • Write Oppose, followed by your reasoning, if you disapprove of the picture. All objections should be accompanied by a specific rationale that, if addressed, would make you support the image. If your concern is one that can only be addressed by the creator, and if they haven't nominated or commented on the image, and if they are a Wikipedian, you should notify them directly.
  • You can weak support or weak oppose instead, so that your opinion will be weighed as half of a "full" opinion.
    • To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
  • If you think a nominated image obviously fails the featured picture criteria, write Speedy close followed by your reasons. Nominations may be closed early if this is the case.
Recommendations added early in the process may be disregarded if they do not address concerns and/or improvements that arise later in the debate. Reviewers are advised to monitor the progress of a nomination and update their votes accordingly.
Prior to giving an opinion, the image should be assessed on its quality as displayed at full size (high-resolution) in an image editing program. Please note that the images are only displayed at thumbnail size on this page. The thumbnail links to the image description page which, in turn, links to the high-resolution version.

How to comment for Delist Images

  • Write Keep, followed by your reasons for keeping the picture.
  • Write Delist, followed by your reasons for delisting the picture.
  • Write Delist and Replace if you believe the image should be replaced by a better picture.
  • You can weak keep, weak delist or weak delist and replace instead, so that your opinion will be weighed as half of a "full" opinion.
    • To change your opinion, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.
Please remember to be civil, not to bite the newbies and to comment on the image, not the person.

You may find the glossary useful when you encounter acronyms or jargon in other voters' comments. You can also link to it by using {{FPCgloss}}.

Editing candidates

If you feel you could improve a candidate by image editing, please feel free to do so, but do not overwrite or remove the original. Instead, upload your edit with a different file name (e.g., add "edit" to the file name), and display it below the original nomination. Edits should be appropriately captioned in sequential order (e.g., Edit 1, Edit 2, etc), and describe the modifications that have been applied.

Is my monitor adjusted correctly?

Gray contrast test image.svg
In a discussion about the brightness of an image, it is necessary to know if the computer display is properly adjusted. Displays differ greatly in their ability to show shadow detail. There are four dark grey circles in the adjacent image. If you can discern three (or even four) of the circles, your monitor can display shadow detail correctly. If you see fewer than three circles, you may need to adjust the monitor and/or computer display settings. Some displays cannot be adjusted for ideal shadow detail. Please take this into account when voting.
Highlight test image.svg
Displays also differ greatly in their ability to show highlight detail. There are light grey circles in the adjacent image. If you can discern three (or even four) of the circles, your monitor can display highlight detail correctly. If you see fewer than three circles, you may need to adjust the monitor and/or computer display settings (probably reduce the contrast setting). Some displays cannot be adjusted for ideal highlight detail. Please take this into account when voting.
Colortest.png
On a gamma-adjusted display, the four circles in the color image blend into the background when seen from a few feet (roughly 75–150 cm) away. If they do not, you could adjust the gamma setting (found in the computer's settings, not on the display), until they do. This may be very difficult to attain, and a slight error is not detrimental. Uncorrected PC displays usually show the circles darker than the background.
Note that on most consumer LCD displays (laptop or flat screen), viewing angle strongly affects these images. Correct adjustment on one part of the screen might be incorrect on another part for a stationary head position. Click on the images for more technical information. If possible, calibration with a hardware monitor calibrator is recommended.

  • Comment On the one hand, it's a brilliant restoration. On the other, I do think the original colours (File:Nadar, Sarah Bernhardt - Getty Museum.jpg) make the details pop a lot more, especially the hair/background distinction, and I'm really, really not a fan of arbitrary conversion to greyscale of images that weren't originally. I don't suppose you saved a copy of the restoration before levels and saturation? As it is, I think I'm kind of leaning neutral. I certainly do not want to oppose it. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 15:19, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
  • @Adam Cuerden: I usually correct the levels and the saturation before doing the restoration. And what make you say that the original is not greyscale? To me, the only colors there is the frame. Regards, Yann (talk) 17:28, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
  • It's sepia. There's two or three chemical processes that can be used, one gives more brownish tones, the other the more almost blue-balanced tones of modern greyscale. This appears to be one of the browner-toned ones. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 18:36, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Metal Slinky

Voting period ends on 22 Jul 2019 at 23:27:22 (UTC)

Original – Metal slinky
Reason
This is a Commons FP of the Slinky toy that's currently used prominently at the Slinky article. It demonstrates the Slinky's nature as a pre-compressed spring, its ability to sit with both ends on the floor, and its typical appearance at rest. This was nominated for FP 13½ years ago (see Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Spiral), but it failed because it wasn't then in a high-EV use and because some voters thought it wasn't a particularly appealing image. It now has a use with high EV, and images with anything less than high quality can't become FPs on Commons, I think we need not worry about concerns that its general quality is poor.

Lillian Feickert

Voting period ends on 21 Jul 2019 at 15:45:30 (UTC)

OriginalLillian Feickert, c. 1912
Reason
As you may know, the 100th anniversary of suffrage in the United States is next year. That means preparing for it is not a bad idea. Feickert has a fairly well-developed biography... but her image looked like this: [1] - That's... not ideal. I think it's a very nice photo of its type, and certainly does the fade better than Nell Mercer. Downside is the composition kind of needs a little space around it. It's something around 500 dpi by my figuring, so pretty good resolution, even if it's not amazing size otherwise.

  • Delist - it is almost identical to the recently promoted image, it does not provide almost any new EV to have a slightly different angle. Should every building have a featured image taken from the front, then a few steps to the left? Mattximus (talk) 15:13, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
    • This is nearer a 45° angle, and shows the structure of the building much more clearly in my eyes. The Greek Cross shape is basically impossible to make out from the new FP as there's no depth. Perhaps both shouldn't be FPs, but the rush to remove this from articles seems a mistake. In fact, the new FP is super misleading - although in an unavoidable way - as to the overall shape as it makes the nearest side look very different from the entrances left and right, as the roof can't be seen from the low angle. Oppose Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 15:46, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment – I am leaning to delist, two things can be better, the deep blue sky doesn't look natural, for a 45 degree angled shot the shadows lean into the view rather than lean away (a photo from the other side or a better time of day can fix this). About not removing this photo from article(s), I agree, it is informative and shows another dimension. But we can just delist it. Bammesk (talk) 03:00, 12 July 2019 (UTC) . . . DelistBammesk (talk) 03:56, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Oppose per Adam Cuerden; comparing this with the front-on view, this is the much better of the two. It allows a good portion of the left-side of the cathedral to be viewed, and the new image is over-bright in the whites. Delist the other one, and keep this one.  —

  • Comment – the tops are noticeably brighter than the bottoms, and look somewhat overexposed (especially the right window). The colors are vivid, I am no expert but I think that's Ok for 1870s. Good EV. Bammesk (talk) 00:27, 11 July 2019 (UTC)
    • The lighting is often unavoidable: It really depends on what's outside of the cathedral. If it's in a built-up area, getting perfect lighting can be impossible. Adam Cuerden (talk)Has about 6.8% of all FPs 11:57, 11 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose – too much, and too little at the same time. Viewing the whole, all those names are distracting, while in a close-up look, there's not enough info, and the font is too large. --Janke | Talk 21:07, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
    • It sounds like you want a dynamically-generated scaling map like Google Maps or OpenStreetMap. Unfortunately, static maps cannot change their information density or font size based on the zoom level, so I'm not really sure how your feedback would be actionable.

  • Comment – Meh. – Sca (talk) 21:50, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Comment – I am leaning to support. I don't see big improvements and I think any change will be good and bad depending on who's looking at it. Also, SVGs, fonts, browsers, and operating systems don't always behave well, this coming from CIA probably displays well on most computer platforms. Bammesk (talk) 01:21, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
