== Xerneas' MS ==
 
I was considering switching [[:{{redlink|File:716AMS.png|Xerneas' Active Mode menusprite]]}} to [[:File:716MS.png]], since its Active Mode seems to be the "default" form featured in most of its artwork, and the only form it takes in battle.

== Rain Gen V Field image for upload ==
 
Hey there, I actually asked around about this several weeks ago, but didn't get a conclusion on this. I was able to upload all the field weather condition images except for the rainstorm summoned by Thundurus/Tornadus in BW, as the resulting file is too big - the animation is about 4.5 MB due to a) 60 fps, b) high detail, and c) length of the animation. I did experiment with 30 fps, but he animation wasn't clean and the file size barely dropped anyway, even fully optimized. Are you able to upload this?<br/>As an aside on the type of rain it is, I originally thought it was a thunderstorm, but there is no lightning, so I decided it didn't fit with previous generations and reclassified it as Heavy rain instead. FYI, the games say it's "stormy weather". What are your thoughts on this?<br/>The file name should be "Rain V Field Heavy.png" (with Thunderstorm instead of Heavy if you think it should be a thunderstorm). The summary should be a location template "Route 7 during heavy rainfall".<br/>Link: [http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll1/jdthebud/JDTHEBUD/Thunderstorm_V.png Gen V rainstorm]<br/>[[User:Jdthebud|Jdthebud]] ([[User talk:Jdthebud|talk]]) 23:47, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
:So it seems that the file I have there shows a Hurricane instead - look at the Rain page for more info. I will upload a still image for now, so please upload over that if possible. I will also see how big a thunderstorm file will be, and let you know if I need help uploading that as well. Thanks. [[User:Jdthebud|Jdthebud]] ([[User talk:Jdthebud|talk]]) 09:18, 1 June 2014 (UTC)
::I was able to upload a thunderstorm image, but it only shows one kind of flash - if multiple types of lighting flashes are more desirable (the one I have has a single then a double) it would be around 3.5 MB. Let me know what you think about that, and also if you are able to uploaded the animated hurricane image. [[User:Jdthebud|Jdthebud]] ([[User talk:Jdthebud|talk]]) 04:45, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
:::Uploaded. It's a good thing that I waited to reply, then. Regarding the thunderstorm issue, I'd rather see what the product looks like before making a judgement on whether to keep this image or use the new one, although so far, I'm waiting for the image to be pruned so that I can take a look at it.

::::Thanks! However, I don't understand your last sentence. Which image are you referring to, and what do you mean by "pruned"? Also, I uploaded a anipng with two different lighting strikes here, although it ended up bigger than my estimate, as I had to balance out the time in between flashes - 4 MB: [http://i284.photobucket.com/albums/ll1/jdthebud/JDTHEBUD/ThunderStorm_V.png Thunderstorm V] -[[User:Jdthebud|Jdthebud]] ([[User talk:Jdthebud|talk]]) 08:03, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
:::::Sorry, it was a typo, I meant "purged". I also meant that I wanted to see what you created before uploading it, comparing both files. The file seems to be missing.

== My aPNG is to big ==
 
Hi,
I made a video of Astonish from XY, which I first saved as a .mp4 (~1MB). Because after searching around I didn't find a program with which I could convert .mp4 to animated .png, I created a sequence of .png files (alltogether ~11MB) and then used the program, APNG Assembler, to convert that into an animated .png file - which then was 8MB. Obviously this is way to big. Is there anything I did wrong? Or is there another way I totally missed? - [[User:Mr. Flix|Mr. Flix]] | [[User_talk:Mr. Flix|My talkpage]] 00:34, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
:Hi. Great to see we have someone else who can help us with XY images! I'd need to know the details of your 8 MB file. Is there a site you could save it in? Imgur, Photobucket or any image sharing site, I would like to see what you have so far. Do you capture and animate both screens? Because we only need the superior screen and if you're capturing both, you can save a lot of space by cropping the files. [[User:Masatoshi|<span style="color: #3363FF; text-shadow: 1px 1px 0px #aaa"><sc>'''Masatoshi'''</sc></span>]] [[User_talk:Masatoshi|<span style="color: #ED3B3B; font-family: Times New Roman;">''talk''</span>]] 02:37, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
::Have you used APNG optimizer? It helps reducing the file's size, by removing redundant parts (You should do it at the very end, though, as {{tt|editing|Changing speed of the frames seems to be fine, though, at least on what I've been using.}} an optimized animation makes it messy, due to the way program works). For example, [[:File:Fire Blast PMD RB.png|this file]] was about 536KB before it went through optimization. You should also include a first frame in the animation that's skipped in the actual animation (as I've done in the file, which is reflected by thumbnail), for the browsers that do not support anipng. Also, I am assuming you've used the 3DS capture card, right? If yes, you'll probably be asked by staff member to upload a specific screenshot, presumably a nicknamed Bulbasaur, as a proof of having it{{tt|.|Unless you've already done that, then... &quot;Doh!&quot;}} [[User:Eridanus|Eridanus]] ([[User talk:Eridanus|talk]]) 08:22, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
:::[http://felix.wiegand.name/img/Astonish.png Uploaded the image here]. @Eridanus: Is there any APNG optimizer you can recommend?
:::Now I finally see what the 'Skip the first frame'-Option is about, thanks! I will use it next time I make that animation.
:::I am already approved to upload XY-Images by Kogoro, but thanks anyway :){{unsigned|Mr. Flix}}
::::Eridanus: While I appreciate you helping as well, please let me try to talk to him first, since he was directed here. Flix: As Eridanus said, you'd need to optimize your animated png files. [http://sourceforge.net/projects/apng/files/APNG_Optimizer/1.2/ This] is the one I recommend. Just choose your OS and run it, you don't need to install it (as far as I remember). Drag the file into the executable file, and post the result. I'll see if we can use animated images for moves, or if we should stick to stills for this Generation. I'll be honest, though; with the background and the Pokémon moving, there are hardly any redundancies in those stills for the optimizer to get rid of. I hope I'm wrong. Also, please remember to sign your comments.

:::::Ah, sorry, forgot the signing there, won't happen again. Your prediction seems to be correct, after optimizing the 8.45MB file, it was 8.73MB. Also, I just discovered that the abovementioned APNG Assembler has the options, 'Optimize palette' & 'Optimize color type', on by default, so I guess it was already optimized... - [[User:Mr. Flix|Mr. Flix]] | [[User_talk:Mr. Flix|My talkpage]] 16:59, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
::::::So I checked, they really are optimized. These files are too large to be extensively used in Bulbapedia, so I'm afraid we'll have to stick with static images. However, the task will be easier now, gotta look at the bright side of things.

== File naming ==
 
I plan to upload {{bp|clothing}} images in the near future and I was kind of wondering about the naming scheme I intend. My intention is to use names like ''"Clothing Logo Cap Black.png"'' and ''"Clothing Logo Cap Blue.png"''. I don't really know how much "proper" capitalization is a concern here in the Archives, so I don't know if it's any sort of problem to have the colors capitalized like that when, in-game, they're all lowercase. But I want to use those sorts of names so it's dead simple for the clothing template to automatically form image names without the need for any new parameters (or any operations on the parameters, like changing the case). So are those sorts of names okay? [[User:Tiddlywinks|Tiddlywinks]] ([[User talk:Tiddlywinks|talk]]) 19:48, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
:Firstly, would you mind telling me where you intend getting these images from? [[User:Masatoshi|<span style="color: #3363FF; text-shadow: 1px 1px 0px #aaa"><sc>'''Masatoshi'''</sc></span>]] [[User_talk:Masatoshi|<span style="color: #ED3B3B; font-family: Times New Roman;">''talk''</span>]] 21:25, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
::From me. Photo spots show clothes just fine. The only thing that's not really possible is male bags. [[User:Tiddlywinks|Tiddlywinks]] ([[User talk:Tiddlywinks|talk]]) 22:03, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
:::Well... we'd rather have clean shots from capture cards, instead of taking them from photo spots, as they are saved in a lossy jpg format. [[User:Masatoshi|<span style="color: #3363FF; text-shadow: 1px 1px 0px #aaa"><sc>'''Masatoshi'''</sc></span>]] [[User_talk:Masatoshi|<span style="color: #ED3B3B; font-family: Times New Roman;">''talk''</span>]] 22:19, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
::::You're right. It's not "perfect" or "ideal". But it's far better than nothing (or even the prospect of nothing for months or years or whatever). Accepting photo spot images for the time being would also allow someone who actually has a capture card to prioritize other needed images over whatever shows up in photo spots. There's just too much that needs doing and far too few people willing and ''able'' to do it at the optimal quality to be that tight-fisted about it, IMO. Imperfect images can always be improved later.
::::So can I ask you to be a bit clearer about this "preference"? Should I absolutely ''not'' upload what I have, or I shall I go ahead with what I have and with the naming as I mentioned above? If possible/necessary, I would ask that you bring it up with general/appropriate staff and return a more or less "official" position for me. Please and thank you... [[User:Tiddlywinks|Tiddlywinks]] ([[User talk:Tiddlywinks|talk]]) 23:09, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
:::::Before giving my reply, I contacted {{u|Kogoro}} about this, and we both agreed that it would be ideal to obtain the models from capture cards themselves instead of having to resort to photo spots, as the capture cards will be clearer to take pictures from, as well as being able to capture every clothing model in detail from the stores. While it's true that we might not have enough people to help, we will eventually get to it; so there's no need to rush it, we have more important things to focus on right now.

::::::Reasons are all well and good. However, they do not necessarily answer my question. I think I know it, but assumptions leave room for mistakes or exceptions or...whatever, which I am loathe to allow. So, to be sure I understand: I absolutely should ''not'' upload my images of clothing from photo spots, correct?

== X & Y Games and Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire battle sprites ==
 
Many battle sprites of Pokemon in the four games that I mentioned in the headlines are missing from the Pokemon pages on Bulbapedia. It's too long for me to list, but you and Spriteit forgot to upload the remaining images for the four games mentioned in the headline. Do you think you can find and upload the missing battle sprites (You might have to look at each of the various Pokemon pages on Bulbapedia to know which pages are missing images? Examples of Pokemon missing battle sprites includes Gyarados and Steelix. The missing battle sprites (in national Pokedex order) start at the page of Venusaur and end at the page of Hoopa. [[User:Ctc1017|Ctc1017]] ([[User talk:Ctc1017|talk]]) 02:25, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
:It's not that we forgot, it's that those were all the files that were available to us. I know what you mean, but we do not have the proper hardware to get the missing sprites from, which is why we need the help of users who do have a video capturer.
