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.
- 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)
