Replacing images Edit
Please don't upload the same images of existing images with the only difference being in HD. You can upload this as the same image and not a double one and only add the template of the remastered image to the image description. You can see what I talk about at your previously uploaded images. We only upload the same image in HD when there are new special effects or new graphics. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks. Tom (talk) 21:54, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
- Why is it that Aatrek can do the same thing? I'm only trying to improve the quality of the site.

- You can upload the HD images as new versions of the existing files, rather than duplicate files. Just put in this remastered image|TNG in the caption for each image. That way the new HD versions replace the low-rez versions currently used in the article pages. - Lava Lander (talk) 01:04, May 19, 2014 (UTC)
- If I go to one of the pages that I edited today and replaced the low rez images with the same image but in HD I can do so if I use that tag?

- Can someone give me a walkthrough on how to do this?

- First, use the "source" option when editing. Go to the file description page for the image you want to replace. Click the "File History" tab. Use the "Upload a new version of this file" link under the history box. After the upload, edit the page to add the template as described above, or as seen on this, and many, many other pages. - Archduk3 01:47, May 29, 2014 (UTC)
