Hello Opoterser!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. EugeneZelenko 16:27, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Ferrofluid image[edit]

I saw your ferrofluid on English Wikipedia and added it to the commons gallery at Ferrofluids. Thanks for that and your other great images. --Gmaxwell (talk) 08:47, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

lighting[edit]

hi opoterser,

i just stumbled over your absolutely fantastic salticid pictures; i'm the guy who created the 500+ salticid genera pages in en.wiki, and i'm trying to do salticid (and other small animal) pictures myself (pics on bottom are with recent camera), but your lighting is much, much better than mine. how do you do it? do you remove reflections in post-processing, or is that rather big flash i see in the spider's eyes something i should probably try to get my hands on? i would very much like to hear from you! cheers --Sarefo (talk) 14:15, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Astrophotography for outreach[edit]

Hi. I'm involved in the open source lunar mission Team FREDNET, a registered competitor in the Google Lunar X PRIZE contest. Among other othings, I'm currently working on some public outreach efforts. I see you've done some very impressive astrophotography. Would you be any chance be interested in doing some inspiring shots of the Moon for our team? If you're interested, please contact me at: anders at feder dot dk. --77.75.161.35 19:53, 16 December 2008 (UTC)

Your images[edit]

You take some simply amazing pictures. Keep up the good work! (and don't let Flickr get all the attention ;) Cheers, Rocket000 (talk) 21:27, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

I just ran across Phidippus pius eyes.jpg randomly. Incredible picture. Ike9898 (talk) 19:24, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Opoterser!

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.

Woow![edit]

Your pictures are amazing! Keep up the good work! Cheers Jopparn (talk) 20:36, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

FYI: Used your media file[edit]

This is a courtesy note. One of your media files is featured in a new commercial eBook in Apple’s iBooks store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/dr.-kemps-kids-love-bugs/id497852225?mt=11

I’ve contributed images to Wikipedia for over seven years now (including several POTD and Featured Images) and I designed the WikiSpecies logo. I respect your work here and the CC-BY-SA license we all labor under.

I know commercializing Wikipedia work is tricky and so I’ve taken great pains to follow your CC-BY-SA license requirements. I also plan to donate 10% of my proceeds to the Wikimedia Foundation directly. This is the very first self-published e-book created with Apple’s new tools and sold in the store.

I’ve given your file a credit line in the “Image and Video Credits” section starting at page 24 as required here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Text_of_Creative_Commons_Attribution-ShareAlike_3.0_Unported_License

This compilation features many of the finest Wikipedia media files in their exact form and not as derivative works. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verbatim_copying_under_the_GFDL#Making_verbatim_copies_of_images

If I did alter your work -- such as cutting out an insect part or adding a video sound track -- I shared a Share Alike version of the new media in a DRM-free format and listed the web address in the credits section.

Thank you very much for uploading your work to Wikipedia and releasing it for the world to use in enriching educational formats.
