Photos[edit]

Awesome, yeah I think there is a way to get wikipedia to compute here, not sure how though, I'll see if I can find out. Anyway, yeah take any of those pics for articles. If I would have to advise you on what to do I would say give it a shot. I have a lot of fun exploring places off the beaten path, so far mostly northern Illinois, but there is more to come I am sure.A mcmurray 19:08, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Try something like [[en:Wikipedia|Wikipedia]], that works.A mcmurray 23:22, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
Actually, the easiest way is adding w: in front of it. Like w:User:Carptrash leads to your Wikipedia userpage. You can also pipelink it, so it looks like User:Carptrash. :) --Ebyabe 00:45, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Carptrash!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Greetings Carptrash, I was just visiting Monks Mound last weekend and it appears to me that your photo of St. Louis as seen from the top of the mound is flipped. The Arch should be to the south (left) of the silver Edward Jones dome and most of the city skyscrapers. See this fixed version.

St. Louis photo, flipped correction

--DawnMarja (talk) 17:14, 21 September 2011 (UTC) Thanks for catching that. A lot of my pictures taken in the past were slides. They are easily reversed during the scanning process. I shudder to think how many more that there are like this, but immediately feel better knowing that you and others are out there, peeking over my shoulder. Good work.

File:Hiker (Newman).jpg[edit]

Your comment says photo taken from "Kvaran, Einar Einarsson, ‘’An Annotated Inventory of Outdoor Sculpture in Washtenaw County’’, Independent Study, Eastern Michigan University, 1989". Obviously the statue itself is in the public domain, but do you know the copyright status of this particular photograph? If that was the first publication, it's possible that the photograph is under copyright. Thanks, cmadler (talk) 14:01, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

  • After you left me a talk-page note on en-wiki, I went to your user page and realized that the "taken from" is your own work! Perhaps you could clarify that on the photo description. (So many people call things "own work" when they've just scanned from an old book that I don't really trust it without further explanation...sad.) Thanks, cmadler (talk) 16:27, 30 January 2012 (UTC)
i am not even sure how I just ended up here - but you've made goods points, and I am glad that I found them. I am often inclined to dwell on the fact that the Inventory mentioned abouve is mine because it is not exactly a published source. Howevrr I am sorry that I caused you to have to check and double check up on me. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 01:30, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.
Thanks for uploading File:Queen Victoria statue, Orange Walk Town, Belize.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for speedy deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. (You can get a list of all your uploaded files using the Gallery tool.) Thank you.

Hi, you have to add a license template for your own fotograf to that image. I just replaced the bogus {{PD-URAA}} with {{FoP-Belize}}, but thats only for the statue. The license for your fotograf is missing. regards. --JuTa 08:51, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
PS: A recommanded license is {{cc-by-sa-3.0}} but there a a lot of other possibilities. --JuTa 08:54, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
