Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Hpeterswald!

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.

US Navy photos[edit]

Hi, When you upload photos from US Navy websites (such as File:HMAS Anzac (FFH 150) is underway alongside a dhow in the Gulf of Aden..jpg and File:HMAS Sydney (FFG 03) during Pacific Bond 2013 (2).jpg) please remember to include a weblink to the source. Without this it's very hard to use the images in Wikipedia articles as the copyright status can't be easily verified. Regards, Nick-D (talk) 10:43, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

AACTA Awards 2014[edit]

I attended the AACTA Awards 2014 and was one of the photographers in the Photo Pit with media accreditation grated by Niki White the PR company for The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards.

File:Lara Bingle and Sam Worthington on 2014 AACTAS Awards red carpet.jpg

The original download of this file contains the full EXIF file with my details. Hpeterswald (talk) 05:18, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

That isn't a problem, but you should give permission (via OTRS) for Commons to use this sort of work as it is extremely similar to, if not the same as, images posted elsewhere with copyright notices, which is why this was tagged. When you upload images, be sure to put {{subst:OP}} in the permission box after you file an OTRS request. This will keep it from being deleted prematurely. On another note, when you upload pictures of people and the subjects are identifiable and still alive you should also include the {{Personality rights}} template in the summary section. Thank you, The Haz talk 06:45, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I have applied to OTRS

How can I add {{subst:OP}} if the file has been deleted and I cant upload the same photograph ? Hpeterswald (talk)

Request the user that deleted it to restore it. You can't request OTRS for it until it is restored anyway. The Haz talk 08:31, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

You requested speedy deletion because the image was identified as copyright Getty images. However, I do not see why you thought that. The photographer claims it is not true. I've accepted the photographer's word. Do you disagree?--Sphilbrick (talk) 21:45, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I would like to add that it is not true that permission via OTRS needs a restore in advance. Many members of the OTRS team (like Sphilbrick and myself) are also administrator at Commons. When we receive a valid permission, we can restore a file and tag it as confirmed. Jcb (talk) 21:58, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
Just going by what I was told in the past. Since you say it's incorrect, it's incorrect. Also, I wrote that the image was available from Getty images because they list ones that are virtually identical (the photographers were all standing together). There were also similar copyvio images uploaded by other users at the same time. However, this user has since noted that he was in the same location and that they are his photographs for which he submitted an OTRS to clear up any confusion in the future. Simple mistake for which I apologize. The Haz talk 00:04, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Ok, no problem. Jcb (talk) 17:29, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Easy mistake, Many thanks 'The Haz' Hpeterswald (talk) 06:07, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Image of F35 mockup, 2014[edit]

Re: File:F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter Mockup on display at Centenary of Military Aviation 2014.jpg

I noticed this image in w:Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II. I downloaded it and wanted to edit it a bit. In doing so, I noticed that the image, as uploaded, had some issues which are best solved by obtaining a version of the image earlier in the creation process than exists in the file on commons, if such a version exists. The specific issues are A:what appeared to be artifacts introduced in the demosaicing process; and B:jpeg compression artifacts. Given the lack of Exif data in the file, I was unable to determine what camera was used to take the picture, and thus whether it was even possible that there might be a version which does not have these issues. However, the histogram of the image implied that some processing had already been performed. Given the level of what appears to be ISO noise, I am not expecting there to be a RAW format version available. I was wondering if you might have a version of the image which is either in RAW format (preferred), or one that is not jpeg compressed to quite such an extent.

If you are wondering what type of edits I was making, aside from image quality enhancement, I found a crop to using only the lower 2800 pixels to be more appealing (less uninteresting sky, and puts the nose of the plane almost exactly at 1/3 below the top of the image). I will upload a version which only has this change so you can take a look at it.

Thanks. Makyen (talk) 17:30, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Great Job, It was actually before sunrise and the flash failed to go off :( Hpeterswald (talk) 23:43, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I have uploaded another version which has been processed a bit. Lots of trade-offs. See if you like it, free free to revert it.
From your comment, I have assumed that there no other version of this image exists which is closer to what was actually on the sensor (i.e. no RAW image, nor an image which has not been as compressed by JPEG). Having a version which is closer to what the sensor saw would help considerably. Among other things, there is clearly some color shifting which has occurred (e.g. excessive blue tint in the dark areas of clouds), for which is difficult to compensate. Basically, a portion of that issue is that the sky just does not look right, particularly for a pre-sunrise shot. This implies that the colors are off in the rest of the image.
BTW: What did you use to take the picture?
Thanks. Makyen (talk) 04:22, 21 March 2014 (UTC)
