Uploading images

Hi!

First of all, great work on all the image uploads, and thanks for your contribution!

Second, there are a couple of notes that could be useful for future cases when you upload images:

  • When uploading images from Twitter, open the image in a new tab in your browser. The URL should start with "https://pbs.twimg" and end with ".jpg". Add ":orig" after the end (so, ".jpg:orig") for the raw, full-sized image.
  • Similarly, when uploading images from tumblr (Squid Research Labs), open the image in a new tab. The URL should start with "https://##.media.tumblr.com/" and end with "_###.jpg" where the #s are number (usually, 78.media for the prefix and _400, _540 or _1280 for the suffix). Replace the prefix with "s3.amazonaws.com/data.tumblr.com/" and the suffix with "_raw.jpg" for the raw, full-sized image.
  • Both of the above are mentioned in the upload page for the wiki (and the tumblr note even recommends a browser plugin that does it automatically).
  • As a useful note (though you did not make this mistake) - if both Twitter and tumblr have the same image, the tumblr raw images are higher quality about 95% of the time. Just download both and compare file sizes if you are unsure
  • Final note, although it's not very important, we usually upload files to the wiki so that their file extension on the wiki is .jpg and not .jpeg.

Thanks for your time, and here's to many more future contributions! -Inkrid (talk) 14:58, 16 April 2018 (UTC)

Ohhhhh. Well, I’ve tried to do that, yet I’m still a sad woomy and can’t do it properly. Do the suffixes and prefixes have to be in the description of the source description? One final question, does the fact I do all of my uploads of an iPad have anything to do with it? Have a nice day Adamsquid (talk) 11:23, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

RE: Aussie

I thought I was the only one. It is great to have more Aussies in the Splatoon community. Veemo! -InfiniteMusume (talk) 09:30, 5 July 2018 (UTC)
