Hi all! In short, I've been deleting duplicated images on HPW: If it's 100% carbon copies or size-reduced that type of files, there's not much to argue about; however, I find the following two scenarios trickier, and would like the community's input on the matter.

I think the way to go is to follow up by adding your input to whichever sub-discussion you want to comment on, whether you think only one of them should be kept (kindly point out which one), or why both should be kept, or if there's other ways to resolve the issue, then sign your signature. =]

P.S.: I am not all-knowing. What I posted is just what I've personally come across, please feel absolutely free to add images in similar situations if they have not been posted here already, so they can be discussed. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 06:05, January 3, 2019 (UTC)

I'll update votes for items when applicable. Out of the current 47 sections, the following 2 only need two more votes if they happened to agree with the current votes, so feel free to start viewing those first to get them out of the way: 1 & 2. Another 2 already were narrowed down and only need a quick aditional deliberation: 1 & 2. There's also currently 17 cases in addition to the 40+ as stated above, omitted to reduce TOC height, and can be found under #Expiring around 15 May, 2019, with its section title being self-explanatory. On top of that, there's another 40+ (unsorted) cases listed under that section due to the current amount needing to be processed.--Sammm✦✧(talk) 01:18, April 12, 2019 (UTC)
The faster more people vote, the quicker the daunting list below can likely be shortened. The similar GIFs increased to the point there's so much to scroll through, so bear with the edit-by-film-batch instead of edit-by-individual-cases. If it gets back below 20 again perhaps that can be rearranged, but with 40+ ones, it's rather unlikely people would want to reply one-by-one anyways.
--Sammm✦✧(talk) 09:59, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
Due to the mass discovery of GIFs fitting the situation this thread is addressing (as of this edit, there were 85 sections listed), I decided to filter out cases I pretty much have strong opinions of their approach, so that they won't populate the TOC and put people off from even viewing this thread due to the sheer size of it. Please know that this is not dictatorship; I value and respect the community's consent, however, time is Galleons; some of the images are uploaded onto this wiki more than a decade ago, the number is just too large for most people to take notice. With the fact that this thread is nearing a month old and only two additional Users have voiced their opinions (which are very, very, VERY much appreciated, btw), I just don't see the point of dragging it out for democracy most probably don't care for. The cases will be under another section, and will be kept for two weeks; if you have a different opinion, voice it or I'll take the silent as consent and move forward. Also note that NOTHING will be deleted, they will all be merged into one file per case, so the uploading history will still be intact. If an action truly upsets you, you can choose to revert to the revision you prefer, but expect to argue for your case if you hadn't done so during this whole process. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 23:17, January 30, 2019 (UTC)



For .gif files, unlike unmoving images, I think even when they are depicting the same sequence, depending on how they were created, they may not be registered as "obviously" duplicates.

Expiring around 15 May, 2019

So the format would be, whichever that's listed the last, is what everything else will be merging to, as in the actual file to be kept. I will bold, green and ✓ to make it more obvious. (Unless there's a description for it to grammatically work when putting the to-be-kept first and not last, let me know.)

(I'm not sure if I should be reminding people, but please do click onto the images to see them in full size to deliberate)

Parvati Patil's Boggart (film ver.)

Parvati Boggart.gif Boggart Snake.gif

  • The visibility of the 1st is so horrible that there's no combination, larger dimension can't salvage it if you can barely see sh*t. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 01:18, April 12, 2019 (UTC)
Parvati Patil's Boggart-Banishing Spell (film ver.)

  • While the colorization of d] could have been better, it wasn't like the rest were much better, either. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 05:29, March 25, 2019 (UTC)
The death of Hedwig
  • And here's proof on how I know my books better than I'll ever be with the adaptations. I was like, wait, so they changed it? Thought she was ironically hit when she was in her cage. Anyhow; a] is laggy but I supposed you can see Harry's shock clearer. Though since this is 2nd tier canon, I don't think quality matters that much since it's only suitable to be in BTS. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 05:21, January 30, 2019 (UTC)
  • b] is a new upload, and personally I don't think it's an improvement; it felt a bit elongated. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 12:52, March 30, 2019 (UTC)
Ron and Hermione kissing
  • a/b/c all have overlapping sequences with d], with it being the longest. e] contains a different sequence, so unless I find one that included it, it'd be left alone for now. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 05:29, March 25, 2019 (UTC)
Glass to jelly

Newt catching Niffler.gif Glass to jelly spell.gif

  • This is not finalized; the 2nd is currently in favor because it's just so much more visible. The 1st contains some sequences that are in fact a bonus to be included, however, it also include some that aren't needed to showcase the scene. In short, it's a tad bit too long. Starting from where the 2nd began would suffice; ending at the niffler clearly being stuck, without cutting back to Newt and show how he tried to pull it free, would be more ideal. The quality of the 1st is at a clear disadvantage, so unless it has a better cut (it currently doesn't), it would not be the one kept. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 01:47, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

Finestra.gif Giphy-0.gif

  • While the 1st may feel "most relevant", the 2nd one is better storytelling that can help comprehending what the spell was actually for... by just a little. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 05:29, March 25, 2019 (UTC)

  • Initially no preference. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 08:53, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
    • c] was a new upload, though when in small size less obvious, it may be a truer representation of the scene? Dunno, I've only watched the film once and I really don't remember. =P --Sammm✦✧(talk) 11:40, March 26, 2019 (UTC)

Temporarily unsorted

So the below was a batch I dumped in haste yesterday before my laptop could crash and forgot to sign to mark the timestamp. In the editing history, I expressed that "I'll sort [them] tomorrow", at the time, I intended to actually sort them out by films and describe them. As one can see, adding 3 more cases that I didn't include in my last edit, there's a total of 51 cases; and I think that's just again too much for this thread to load smoothly. I'll still "sort out" the ones that I'll include the "expiring soon" batch, and will at least sort out the below in order of general appearance (from what I'm able to remember anyways), so the numbering after said edit will be different since some are relocate accordingly. I hope I'll get to these once the expiring batch is taken care of to free up some space. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 18:42, February 1, 2019 (UTC)

So at the point of the timestamp for this update, there's 40/41 cases below. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 03:23, February 6, 2019 (UTC)
At the point of the timestamp for this update, there's 45 cases below; may deliberate a bit more to see if I can move some to the expiring batch. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:33, February 15, 2019 (UTC)

Help speed up the process

Was tempted to proceed the following immediately after seeing the new vote, but had to remind myself that this post hasn't actually been posted for a month. I'll wait just a couple of days to hit the 1-month mark. =] --Sammm✦✧(talk) 16:10, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Fake Moody killing a spider

Killing curse spider.gif (+2) 150px (+0)

  • I thought the 1st one was good until I found the 2nd one, but I suppose some people would want to see fake Moody's face lol. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 11:36, January 14, 2019 (UTC)
  • I prefer the first one, the second one looks a bit like a meme xD And I don't think anyone's gonna forget what Moody looks like any time soon. The first one has a better motion and quality, so. 민태준 - 슈가 (Inconvenience me here!) Slytherin ClearBG.png 20:24, January 17, 2019 (UTC)
    • Ahhh lol, sorry if the comment seemed confusing, I meant that I can see people wanting to include it was him casting the spell, since the other one only shows the wandpoint. I'm sure dedicated fans would know who was casting regardless though. (I don't prefer the 2nd one lol) --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:47, January 17, 2019 (UTC)

Arthur Weasley attacked by Nagini

(I felt like I might have seen more files for this scene, so keeping the gallery format for now. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:48, January 17, 2019 (UTC))

  • a] contains a longer sequence that includes Harry getting the vision.
  • b] has the cut before the strike (without blood)
  • c] is a new upload, which I'm again not amused by, and not particularly of better quality or higher visibility.--Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:39, April 12, 2019 (UTC)
  • d] has the cut after the strike (with blood).
    • Am wondering if all three are needed. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:48, January 17, 2019 (UTC)
    • I would actually vote for d], but I dislike the edited colour. I think I should go with a], it's laggy but it has more in it and it isn't edited. 민태준 - 슈가 (Inconvenience me here!) Slytherin ClearBG.png 20:24, January 17, 2019 (UTC)

Remus Lupin's Moon Boggart

  • Originally there were 4 GIFs for this scene; narrowed it down to 2 (a] & c]), reason as stated in Forum:Treatment for similar images/Archive 1#Remus Lupin's Moon Boggart. Just want the community's opinion on whether or not we really need one GIF specifically for "Moon Boggart only" or if it's okay to use the extended sequence for it. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 21:14, February 14, 2019 (UTC)
  • b] is a new upload that has little value considering what's already on HPW. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:39, April 12, 2019 (UTC)

  • Unsure, 1st one contains a longer sequence and looks clearer, but I can see the 2nd one illustrating the scene of being buried by a bunch of letters better lol. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:40, January 28, 2019 (UTC)
  • Prefer the 1st one, second one is quite filtered, 1st is more accurate. CosmicChronos Talk to me Contribs 14:35, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Hermione Granger performing Oculus Reparo

  • Editing-wise, c] is probably the best one; wouldn't have minded trying to include Hermione, but I don't think the editing of lip movement in a] is accurate. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 07:57, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
  • a] is pretty laggy compared to c], I'd go for the latter. CosmicChronos Talk to me Contribs 14:35, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Lumos Solem

  • a] is larger in size but not exactly clearer. b] includes incantation--Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:58, January 30, 2019 (UTC)
  • c] is a new upload, which I almost picked as the one to be merged to, however, the incantation seemed a bit too short? --Sammm✦✧(talk) 01:18, April 12, 2019 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (film)

Gilderoy Lockhart performing Brackium Emendo

  • a] is largest in scale, but b] contains lip movement of the spell being cast, and c] only contains the lip movement; I'm guessing it's best to keep a] & c] and ditch b], unless a better upload replaces any of them --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:49, January 28, 2019 (UTC)

Sirius Black on Daily Prophet

Prisoner of Azkaban - Sirius Black.gif 150px

  • 1st one larger in scale but laggier and weirdly looped. (BTW, not recognizing the specific Daily Prophet article, is there a page for it on HPW?) (nvm, found it, though I don't think I agree with it's treatment; apparently it's the film's substitute for BLACK STILL AT LARGE.) --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:58, January 30, 2019 (UTC)
    • If the inclusion of where this scene took place (on the Knight Bus) is important, I found this (source) that's at least better put together then the 1st GIF on this wiki. Personally I actually think it's more distracting to not focus on the newspaper lol, so some input would be nice. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:21, February 3, 2019 (UTC)

Boggart-Banishing Spell on a Severus Snape Boggart

  • Not sure if I have a preference. d] is largest but transitions less smooth. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 07:57, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Trio laughing during a Hogsmeade weekend trip

  • a] has the best sequence out of the current 3 but not winning by much and is pretty low quality comparing to the other two. b] & c] have relatively good quality, but I think the cut and loop were compromised it's because of that, and just looked plain awkward. Don't think I have a preference for any of these. I think the scene itself probably could have a good GIF out of it, but just not the 3 above lol. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:49, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
    • I found 1 (source) to be a more balanced colorization and fuller sequence, but as it played out, the trio didn't look like they were having a blast as they were in those poorly looped ones, which is understandable and truer to the scene anyways lol.
    • Also found 2 (source) to include the sequence just a little before the one above, which was what I gathered and to me makes a lot more sense. It includes Harry coming out of the cloak. Only issue is that you don't see the trio really start laughing.
      • Will keep looking for better options. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:21, February 3, 2019 (UTC)

Harry approaching Buckbeak

150px File:Buckbeak Harry.gif

  • 2nd one is watermarked. Also feel like there might be more of those around. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 23:00, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
    • So the slight distinction is that in the 1st one, while coming close, Harry hasn't actually gotten to touch Buckbeak before the scene was cut and looped. No real solution yet but the 1st one can perhaps at least be replaced with this (source) so it's of higher quality. That's the last resort though, hopefully will be able to find one that contains both sequences. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:21, February 3, 2019 (UTC)

Hermione and Harry in the Hospital Wing experiencing time-change

Turning time.gif Time travel.gif

  • Wouldn't be surprised if there's more variants lying around. Unsure which one has a more accurate timing, but the 1st one likely has more authentic colorization. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:40, January 28, 2019 (UTC)
    • Upon closer inspection, while they may have overlapping sequences (sorry, it's just too similar after all lol), they actually include quite different ones as well. The 1st one Harry distinctively looked up and towards the far left (our left, his right); whereas the 2nd one Hermione's left hand also touched the Time-Turner briefly. The lighting while possibly still having been altered, but I forgot it should contain lighting change to begin with. Not solution yet, but I found this (source) that showcases the time changes well, and not just with people around them looking like they were moving really fast, but with the lighting. Have not found ones that are sized similar to the current two though. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:21, February 3, 2019 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (film)

Reappearance of the Dark Mark

  • Def. b] over a]; c] contains the conjuration though I feel like it might have been spread up, and it also cut short of the snake-tongue sequence. Wish there's a better version of it to represent this scene as one. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 18:00, January 30, 2019 (UTC)

Harry vs Dementor

Harry casts Patronus spell.gif (+1) 150px (+1)

  • 1st one has a longer sequence and is seemingly more authentic (cut-wise), but I think people can argue the 2nd one shows the Dementor a bit clearer. Dunno. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 11:36, January 14, 2019 (UTC)
  • I prefer the second one, the graphic and quality is smoother. 민태준 - 슈가 (Inconvenience me here!) Slytherin ClearBG.png 20:24, January 17, 2019 (UTC)


  • b] is larger in size, but I feel both of them are somewhat "laggy" if that makes any sense. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 07:13, January 3, 2019 (UTC)
    • So I found this and this, neither being close to the film's aspect ratio, but I think comparing to the two we have on HPW, their motion are way more fluid and not looking like they were randomly pausing. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 11:09, January 3, 2019 (UTC)

  • The cut scene is real, I believe, and I prefer the first one. 민태준 - 슈가 (Inconvenience me here!) Slytherin ClearBG.png 20:24, January 17, 2019 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (film)

Bellatrix establishing an Unbreakable Vow between Severus and Narcissa

  • I feel that a] is so subtle that a high quality unmoving picture can do its job. b] one is marked as User image but I'm pretty sure that was not the intention when it was first uploaded, felt c] would suffice. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 16:50, January 30, 2019 (UTC)
    • Originally this was going to be processed with a batch of files; upon closer inspection, b] shows the sequence where Bella started the spell, which c] does not, plus, I also don't know if the cut scene of c] is authentic or edited, so moving it back for opinions! --Sammm✦✧(talk) 09:04, February 13, 2019 (UTC)

  • 1st one contains a longer sequence, but seems laggier. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:48, January 17, 2019 (UTC)
  • I prefer the second, it's less laggy, and whoever made the first one made it into an endless loop. I'd be fine with it, but it doesn't look good on a kiss. 민태준 - 슈가 (Inconvenience me here!) Slytherin ClearBG.png 20:24, January 17, 2019 (UTC)

Severus killing Albus

  • b] contains a longer sequence than a], though both look heavily edited that I sort of wish something better is lying around. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:40, January 28, 2019 (UTC)
  • c] is a freshly new upload, which I am not amused for it to be happening, just saying. The one good thing that came out of this, is that it confirmed my thoughts that b] is edited in a way that makes little sense, omitted the sequence of Dumbledore actually getting hit by the spell. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 21:45, February 9, 2019 (UTC)
    • c] got updated and became an unlooping GIF, which, is worse then before. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 12:52, March 30, 2019 (UTC)
  • d] is solely the sequence of Dumbledore falling, which I personally don't see the value. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:49, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
    • So far, none of them are ideal, c] would have had an edge if the spell at least looks greener, missing the lip movement for the incantation, I can't say the GIF clearly showcased the Killing Curse, even though we all know it does. Replacement would be appreciated but please just replace any of them instead of uploading them separately. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 21:45, February 9, 2019 (UTC)

  • 2nd one is partial from the 1st one, but I'm guessing it has a truer colorization. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:49, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

  • I have no recollection of this scene so I have no idea which one is more authentic. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 08:53, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

I Open at the Close

  • 1st one is larger in scale but unfortunately has a watermark on the top right.--Sammm✦✧(talk) 21:23, January 28, 2019 (UTC)

Hermione vs Antonin Dolohov

  • I am actually unsure; the more I look at it, the more I think those two may be depicting scenes one after the other instead of the same sequence, unless it's heavy editing to make them look less identical, but def. from the same duel. Documenting it in case a compromise is found along the way. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:40, January 28, 2019 (UTC)

Harry and Hermione Disapparating

  • I wish there's a version that's in between the two, the 1st one is more visible but also looked onerously edited, however, I also don't remember the original scene being this dark as the 2nd one. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 06:53, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Harry messing around with fire

  • 1st one is larger in scale, but the 2nd one contains a longer sequence. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 23:03, January 3, 2019 (UTC)

  • Don't really think I have a preference. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:49, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Ginny looking concerned

  • Let me start by saying I don't understand why this scene needs a GIF. Don't have a preference. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 08:53, January 29, 2019 (UTC)

Neville beheading Nagini

  • Originally it was between a] and c] with a] unfortunately slightly distorted. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 05:21, January 30, 2019 (UTC)
  • With b] now found, I'm unsure. It's also distorted, but it contained an additional sequence with Nagini about to strike. (IDK if it's genuine though; not familiar enough with the films.) --Sammm✦✧(talk) 22:48, February 1, 2019 (UTC)
