Poor Image: Series.Doctor Who get usage counts

 1 Wack'd, Mon, 11th Aug '14 12:45:18 PM Relationship Status: You're a beautiful woman, probably
Is there any chance we could get some sort of consensus on exactly how closely cropped the pictures of the Doctor are supposed to be? Some are head-and-shoulders, while some get everything from the waist up. I'm more of an advocate of the former, really, as most Doctors have assorted outfits and it's the face that's the important bit, but in any case some consistency would be nice.

I made a mock-up of a head-and-shoulders version, for comparison. It's the same height and width as the current one, and the only picture I swapped out was Tennant's because the source image crops out his entire left shoulder. Granted, I don't think most of these work well as headshots, but I assumed they were voted on or something and I wanted to respect that.

I don't know that there's ever been a vote so more options might be nice but I like consistency and I think the suggestion looks good.

In which case, I'll set about making a new mock-up with better head shots.

No, the other one.
Old thread for reference.

Here's the suggestion at 350 px...had to do it as a high-quality JPG, would've been way too big as a PNG even optimized.

I knew I should have made 9's face bigger. [up] looks good.
Image Source. Please update whenever an image is changed.

Alright. New version, with more head-shot appropriate pictures.

I like version #7.

7's pretty good, too...not sure which I prefer.

Both are good. I probably prefer the OP, wikisized in #5.

 12 Wack'd, Tue, 12th Aug '14 11:10:23 AM Relationship Status: You're a beautiful woman, probably
If it means anything, my preference is for 7. Properly black-and-white 1st and 2nd Doctors, no more lobster-faced 3rd, no more 4th at that absurd angle, and an acknowledgment that 8th was in things besides the TV Movie.

[up] Good points — I missed the black-and-white technicolour for the 1st and 2nd doctor.

 14 Wack'd, Thu, 14th Aug '14 6:55:09 PM Relationship Status: You're a beautiful woman, probably
So, how exactly is it determined whether or not it gets used?

Generally speaking, an image must have a consensus. The current image was chosen in an IP thread, too, and since this is very similar and an improvement, it's probably going to be approved soon. We just need more votes and then a mod (Willbyr in this case) can call it and close the thread.

No, the other one.
I've thought for about as long as the thread's been open, and I'm still not sure which one I prefer. Probably #5, but #7 is good too.
Check out my fanfiction!
In uffish thought
I prefer 7 to five, and I like the consistency in having them all be headshots, but I prefer the current overall because of how it formats Capaldi's image; in the suggested layout, it seems kind of tacked on and floaty. Still, any of them are good with me.

I personally prefer #7.

No. 7 is a winner.

I like the new version.
I too like Wack'd's version. Is this enough consensus yet?

Yup, we're good. The new pic's swapped in and the tag's adjusted. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
