Synodontis victoriae again

Post by lfinley58 » Tue Dec 05, 2017 10:53 am

Hi,
The photo owner's names are switched for the two pictures that were recently "caption corrected."
Also, the stamp illustration is reversed so that the wording on it appears backwards.

These are issues that will require access to the original figures, which I don't have access too.

As for the backwards stamp, that can be expected because the convention here is to upload all photos with the fish facing left.

That said, it highlights another issue on this CLOG page, and that is the fact that the "close up of head" photo was not uploaded facing left. That can also be fixed only with access to the original photos.

Cheers, Eric

Hi Eric,
Thanks for the follow up. I didn't think that the owner name change would be such a problem - HH (Silurus) for the stamp; Mark Smith for the photo. Oh, well.

Re the pictures: I can see the difficulty there. To take one with writing (or a photographers embedded name) and reverse for the facing left format does create sloppy looking problems. I am thinking about maybe saying more on this topic later in another post.

So, what has happened here is the pictures are in the wrong place. If the pictures were swapped then

a) The owners of the pictures would be correct and
b) they'd be the right way around in both cases

Looking at it now.

That's it fixed, swapped the captions back over and all is now well hopefully.
