> On the statistic page you can find an overview of the use of the images of the KB collection highlights

The main goal is to have for every collection highlight a folder with the hires single images. This sometimes results in extra folders with lowres single images or with lowres or hires openings When available the hires images of the openings are downloaded also (put together in their own folder). The single pages (the recto or verso of the pages in the book) are then cut out of the openings images with the Wikimedia Commons crop tool. In this crop tool the precies cutting method is used. Needless to say every cropped image is in itself uploaded as a new image. By using the croptool the information of the originally uploaded picture (with the book openings) is always linked to the newly cropped single page image.

Naming the images[edit]

Ideally the names of the images are constructed as follows: Name of work - Inventory number- page number(s)
