Image taking guidelines[edit source]

Hey Manfegor, I saw that you are uploading a lot of images. Are you aware of Help:Editing/Taking_images and RuneScape:Images_and_media_policy?

It seems that with the two examples here:

lighting detail is high or bloom is turned on, making for very bright spots on the shoulders. I think you need to turn that off so that the colors look uniform and all equal. Can you please keep in mind also the guidelines/policies, so that all new images are taken in the same way? Thank you! If you have questions, please let me know.

Hello, Yes, I'm aware of those of course. And I can always retake the imgs, but just one issue.

  • Help:Editing/Taking_images#How_to_take_different_types_of_images - equipped item -> nowhere mentioned anything about the bloom. Only mentioned about midday skybox and AA, which was set. The Bloom only mentioned at Scenery and with Bloom off the shiny parts still appear, so the lightning quality needed to be set to low, but that one really not mentioned anywhere that I can find.
  • RuneScape:Images_and_media_policy#Lighting - Mentions only "natural lighting" (which could mean anything, also the shiny surfaces narutally shines... So natural :) ) and Daystone/Midday skybox.

Now I went back and tried to search with ctrl+f on those pages, still not much of a find for what I need.

So, sorry for the inconveniences, and I'll of course retake the images with low light details, and yes, every time a guy learn something, but I think this wasn't a "deserved" assuption that I didn't read the guides.

First of all, taking images takes also some experience and looking at previous images to see what things should look like. Not everything is detailed out on those pages, because there is no golden rule for all specific settings.
With Natural lighting it is meant that we should make sure that no enhanced lighting features are used in the pictures. E.g. we need a midday/daystone skybox without bloom. It might be a bit confusing, I agree.
I did not assume you haven't read those pages, just wanted to check whether you had seen them already ;) Dragon dagger.png AmoVos 09:57, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
I also have one further comment. It is often nicer to take equipped item images under an angle. So, not take it straigth from the front. That is really static. For example compare your images to Hope it helps, let me know if you have questions. Dragon dagger.png AmoVos 10:09, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for the advices, although I have a question. You mentioned that the image should taken from an angle, but there is some image that was retaken because of that angle, like Soooo, which method is the good method? But at the end maybe I'll just let others handle the imgs for now :) Guardian of Fortitude hood chathead.png Manfegor Quest points.png 10:31, 6 November 2020 (UTC)
Alright, so I have asked around. We do not have guidelines on the angle of equipped item images. So I guess it is just a matter preference. If an image is retaken with the sole reason of changing the viewing angle, while the previous image was just as good, this is not desirable and also not a nice thing to do as other put in the effort to take high quality images as well as adding transparency.

Okay i see, thank you very much for the help and the clear up for these things. :) Guardian of Fortitude hood chathead.png Manfegor Quest points.png 21:03, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
