Gottliebfotos[edit]

Hallo Peter, kannnt du mal in Commons:Village_pump#Gottlieb_free_of_licence_photos... vorbeischauen und sagen, was der Status ist? Gibt es irgendeine zentrale Koordinationsseite? Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 21:58, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Saibo, ist gemacht. Eine Koordinationsseite gibt es imho nicht. Gerade was digitale Restaurationen oder Uploads im Allgemeinen angeht, ist man hier noch im Anfangsstadium. Mir sind keine Richtlinien oder Ähnliches bekannt. P.S. freut misch zu höre, des ma hier leude trifft wo babbele so ei sprach^^
Ei Guude, Peter! die Sache mit der Lizenzierung verwirrte mich nur am Anfang, weil auf flickr so ein eindeutig zweideutiger Hinweis angegeben ist, dass nichts bekannt sei. So wie es im PD-tag steht, ist die Sache schon klarer - aber das entdeckte ich ja erst nachher. Ich habe leider keine Zeit mich hier groß zu beteiligen, wollte aber helfen die Leute zusammen zu bringen. Näheres in VP. Viele Grüße --Saibo (Δ) 22:18, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Peter! Danke für deine Aufmerksamkeit; das habe ich gar nicht mitbekommen, dass durch Carschtens Bearbeitung das Bild runterskaliert wurde. Hab's aus dem NEF nochmal neu entwickelt.

Danke und Grüße, —DerHexer (Talk) 18:03, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

hallo DerHexer, danke das du die revision gemacht hast. die schärfe ist ein zankapfel. ich arbeite gerne mit dem highpassfilter in photoshop und selektiver schärfe, sprich über eine maske. so erreicht man dezente ergebnisse. eine kontrast/tonwertanpassung in verbindung mit der schärfe ließe die burg etwas "saftiger" wirken. ansonsten eine tolle aufnahme, die gut in den artikel passt. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 19:46, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

"Making of..." Schneckenbilder[edit]

Hallo Peter, zunächst Danke für die positive Bewertung. Betreff der Frage des "Making of..." der Schneckenbilder: Ich habe eine Box mit Sand, in die ich die Schnecken lege, so lassen sie sich gut positionieren. Meist lege ich auf den Sand noch ein Tuch, z.B. schwarzen Samt, dann liegen sie bereits auf schwarzem Hintergrund. Bei sehr hellen Schnecken nehme ich auch helle Stoffe, da sonst die Schalen oft überbelichtet sind, wenn man weiße Schalen auf schwarzen Hintergrund legt. Dann werden die Einzelbilder mit Photoshop ausgeschnitten und auf schwarzen Hintergrund gesetzt. Gute Tipps findet man z.B. auch unter http://www.femorale.com.br/femorale/phototips.asp . Viele Grüße --Llez (talk) 14:35, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

vielen dank für diese rasche antwort. obgleich das photographieren von muscheln/schnecken und dergleichen eher eine nische ist, bin ich immer wieder begeistert deine bilder zu sehen. weiter so! regards, PETER WEIS TALK 14:38, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

✓ Done thanks for pointing it out. it happens to be that i know two or three tricks with photoshop. if you're interested in, i can create a solid black background version. i'll have to postpone this to the upcoming weekend though. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 19:48, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

File:Dinoceras mirabile Marsh MNHN.jpg in FPC[edit]

Hello!
Thanks for your review of this picture, and comments.
I disagree, sometimes, with your wishes of solid black backgrounds, but I think you are right in this case. Then I reverted to the previous version, wich is enough well exposured in my opinion.
Would you please show me with notes where are the masking spots ?
I work with the GIMP, and I brush the contour with a soft brush, all is hand made ! I do not work with masks, because I think the result is not precise enough. But maybe I'm wrong ?
Best regards from Paris.--Jebulon (talk) 10:30, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Sure will do so. I am currently not at my working environment, therefore i'll have to forward this to at least sunday. i see your point in non solid black backgrounds. after some reconsideration on the question of masking, i came to the conclusion that transparent background is the best solution. this will enable anyone to apply black/white/grey/gradient/whatever colour for their special needs, but is more work than using a solid background in the first place.
the aesthetical intention to use black background is because it creates the most convincing masks. the technique of User:Llez (see link in "Making of..." Schneckenbilder above) shows why. inspired by his and User:Rama's work, i'll nominate my very first own solid black background image.
to the question of masks: i use them myself quite often, especially for restoration work, and must say that this does not exclude the work with brushes. photoshop enables you to create masks with selections, brushes and other methods (like colourbiased selections, etc.) - since i don't know about gimp, i can make no point here.
i've experienced you as someone who's very interested in user comments, and looking out for advices. if you are interested i would very much like to contact you via skype. just pass some lines via mail/usertalk.
best regards from somewhere in germany, PETER WEIS TALK 19:52, 12 November 2010 (UTC)


  • Hi
    Thanks for answering.
    I've read your message after opposing your cigars, I hope it does not worry Clin... By the way your masking work looks excellent to me.
    GIMP offers the same possibilities as Photoshop, I suppose. But I am a relative newbie, and did not try all the options yet.
    I understand what you mean with "solid black background" and the usefulness of transparency. I agree. But I think that a personnal choice of another background for a nomination in FPC is part of the work of art (please don't laugh !), and makes a "global" picture. Maybe should I have to propose two versions in file page, with a transparent one available ? Not a bad idea...
    Skype: please don't forget that I'm very old. Computer, OK. Migration from PC to Mac, OK. Digital photography, OK. Touching up, OK. Wiki language, almost OK. I know that Skype exists, but that's all... Furthermore, as you can see, my english is very bad (und mein Deutsch ist gar nicht besser !). I can read and write in english and german, a bit in spanish (with a dictionary), but to speak is different... Using a keyboard gives time, and corrections are possible. My (personnal) computer is in a sleeping room, and I can work at it only at evening or night because of my job.
    But you may contact me here, or by e-mail. It will be a real pleasure.
    Best regards from somewhere(else) in a rainy Paris, at job (a saturday, what a shame !!)--Jebulon (talk) 16:12, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

    • that's alright. i get your point in not using skype - my "working hours" are rather strange as well. but due to all that timeshifting there's always someone online and offline. the spots you fixed where the one i saw as well see annotations for other spots. changes on levels could improve the whole image. thanks in advance. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 18:22, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Black levels in masking[edit]

Hi.
First, thanks for review-s-, even if... Sometimes... well, no worries at the end. It's only a game...
Your questions: Yes, I see the three circles very well, and not the fourth.
I work home on an Imac 27 in., evenings and week-ends. Sometimes I make comments (no work on images) from my office (Shhhht !), with a lower quality monitor.
My post processing software home is GIMP.
The problem is me, not the settings. I did not really learn how to mask, and I dislike to use the "selection" tools: I use successive black brushes, a soft one, near the object, then harder and harder. After that, I use at the end the selection tool (lasso) and the "black" (or others...) color pot. That's what I did'nt do for my last statue (I was not careful enough, this nomination is my mistake).
I'll be back with this picture because I like this delicate scenery very much.
Regards.--Jebulon (talk) 10:36, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

alright - not seeing the fourth circle kind of explains your vote on my panorama. i think this in a general issue for dark areas in pictures. users with poor colour calibration or deficient hardware could not possibly see the masking you did - or the whole dynamic range of my panorama. selections and masks can be learned from tutorials all over the web, so don't worry. to my reviews: yes they are rather short and direct. i do not use emoticons to relativise my statements. my critique is on the image not on the people creating them. if browsing through fpc from time to time i've got the impression that this has not reached everyone yet. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 11:19, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
I don't understand very well. Must we have a special setting for looking at your pictures (need of an emoticon here)?
How I review: I open very quickly the image, then I don't know who is really the author before reviewing (even if, now, I begin two recognize some personal "brands" without formal signatures...). I try (I repeat: I try) to be as fair as possible, and I'm not interested (in review) by people at first. If I'm not interested at a subject or a picture in general, I do not vote. But your own signature is very...visible and is a bit disturbing to me.--Jebulon (talk) 15:06, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Not my pictures in general, but for the panorama seeing all four circles (speaking in terms of the guideline) was recommended. If deficient hardware/software darkens images - one's own working environment anticipates the decision on an image's technical quality. someone seeing only two circles could not make an appropriate statement on the technical quality of an image with low available light (like my sunset). on the other hand someone with such a setting can not discover problems in dark areas of an image (your selection). perhaps this clarifies why i think colour management and display are critical to find a verdict (oppose/support/neutral).
How i review: open every image in photoshop, check on 100% for details, problems, errors do the same with the original if available and post my verdict. amongst the very active people on commons some names refer to a special kind of photography style and items. you can expect certain qualities and compare to other images by the same user. still the aforementioned verdict comes along with the analysis of the picture.
to the question of signature: i see this very much as a counterpart to a handwritten signature. the guideline on signatures encourages people to create their own - i read it and then decided to create one. yes - red, white and black are very dominant and visible. if the guideline changes or i unillumined infringe them, i'm happy to change my signature for the better. until then - regards, PETER WEIS TALK 17:11, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Lambis millepeda[edit]

Hallo Peter Weiss,
what do you mean with "reconsider adjusting levels"? All pictures in one line as in some previous? I changed the arrangement mainly for two reasons. The arrangement in one line looks good in some species, but not in all (only if the high of the last two aspects is smaller or equal to the first three, if it is grater, it does not look very good). The second reason: I have seen, that meanwhile my pictures are used in wikimedia taxboxes. The arrangement in one line leads to a very narrow, small image. In the present arangement the shells are better visible.
So I decided for this arrangement. If you meant someting other with "adjusting levels", please let me know.
Kind regards. -- Llez (talk) 18:10, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

hallo Llez,
der einfachheit halber schreibe ich dir das mal in deutsch. es geht hier nicht um deine komposition und die arrangierung der muscheln. levels bezieht sich auf das histogramm - kommt davon wenn man zu lang in photoshop unterwegs ist... das histogramm hat noch spielraum für den weißregler - den einfach mit photoshop/gimp/etc. mehr in die mitte bringen, so dass er am rand des histogramms angrenzt. der eindruck der dabei entsteht ist dann saftiger, lebhafter, kontrastreicher. für mein empfinden auch realistischer - aber das mag geschmackssache sein. danke übrigens für das making of der schneckenbilder. meine momentane nominierung habe ich damit erstellt. habe für den hintergrund meinen schwarzen wintermantel genutzt, und das ganze in den schrank gelegt - hat das licht sehr gut aufgesaugt. mit photoshop noch ein wenig die schwarztöne hochziehen und das wars. die wahl der linse muss ich allerdings noch mal überdenken. gerade in sachen reprographie soll ja einer 100mm FB gut sein, da nahezu verzerrungsfrei. irgendwelche erfahrungen/denkanstöße?
regards, PETER WEIS TALK 18:35, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Downsampling[edit]

Hi Peter. You recently voted against my FP candidate image on grounds of downsampling. May I ask you how do you check when an image is downsampled and why is this bad for FP images? --Murdockcrc (talk) 08:06, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Hi Murdockcrc, i usually look at the metadata provided, then check for the highest resolution available with the body and return a verdict. i understand that one can select a lower resolution within the menu of a camera, still very few people do so, imho. downsampling is bad because it is most commonly used to hide problems like digital noise, lacking sharpness, etc. - assuming good faith i don't believe you did it for this reason. the more fatal reason for downsampling being bad is the re-usability of an image: be aware that websolutions are not the only way of reuse. by providing the highest resolution available you ensure that people can use your image for high quality printing, plus you increase your chances of having one of your images published in print media.
    the guideline cleary states: Images should not be downsampled . i therefore oppose every downsampled image, if there is no strong argument against it (historic singularity, high educational value, other kind of significance). even if the original resolution could not achieve featured picture status, uploading the higher resolution (if available) can help others and their projects.
    p.s. the canon 5d mark ii is a great body - i'll c&p that userbox you use. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:30, 4 December 2010 (UTC)

FPC Turbinella pyrum[edit]

Hallo Peter, zunächst herzlichen Dank für die positive Beurteilung. Ihre Bemerkung "please provide metadata/exif." bezieht sich vermutlich auf die technischen Daten des Bildes. Bei Einzelbildern werden diese ja automatisch eingelesen. In diesem Fall (und bei den anderen Schnecken) habe ich 5 verschiedene Fotos über Photoshop zusammengesetzt. Dabei gehen diese Daten verloren. Eine weitere Schwierigkeit besteht darin, das fast jedes Foto etwas andere Daten hat. Z.B. in diesem Fall: 4 Bilder sind mit ISO 64 aufgenommen, die Frontalansicht mit 100; Die Brennweite bei Dorsal- und Lateralansich betrug 28mm, bei den übrigen 32. Belichtungszeiten: Dorsal 1/100, Lateral 1/80, ventral 1/40, Hinter- und Vorderseite 1/60. Lichtwert Dorsal und lateral -1,7 Schritte, ventral +0,3, Hinteransicht -1,3, Frontalansicht -0,3 usw. Es wäre also eine sehr lange Beschreibung, und hier müsste jeder einzelne Wert händisch eingegeben werden. Haben Sie eine Lösung, wie es einfacher geht, ob das alles automatisch ausgelesen werden kann? Bin für jeden Tipp dankbar. Viele Grüße --Llez (talk) 18:55, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

hallo liez, ich erkenne ihren punkt. das photoshop die exif/metadaten "frisst" ist nicht nur bei kompilierungen mit unterschiedlichen bildern ein problem. alles a mano einzugeben wäre in der tat zu zeitaufwändig. die andere option die ich sehe, wäre die gemeinsamkeiten in einer kamera infobox aufzuzeigen - sprich kamera modell, linse und was sonst noch gemeinsam ist. das automatische auslesen der exif/metadaten und die sinnvolle einbindung in wiki templates ist da schon etwas schwerer. es gibt programme die zum auslesen und speichern im excel format in der lage sind (z.b. hier) - zielführend wäre allerdings eine freie software die so etwas kann, das ganze aus dem excel-format o.ä. dann ins template einzubinden, wäre vermutlich das geringere problem. mein vorschlag an sie: starten sie einen thread auf dem village pump oder schildern sie User:Magnus Manske das problem. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 20:51, 6 December 2010 (UTC)
Um nochmals auf das Thema zurückzukommen: "Ximonic" hat vorgeschlagen, die Kategorie "Taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ1" zu listen. Zunächst hielt ich die Idee für gut und habe einen entsprechenden Kommentar dazu geschrieben. Inzwischen bin ich aber etwas anderer Meinung: Die Kategorie ist nicht sichtbar, so dass auf der Beschreibungsseite der Hinweis weiterhin fehlt bzw. nicht leicht auffindbar ist. Ich habe mir also nochmals Gedanken gemacht und bin nun auf eine leicht zu realisierende Möglichkeit gestoßen, einige Metadaten ohne großen Aufwand mitzuliefern. Am Beispiel Turbinella pyrum ist dies bereits geschehen, und glaube, das ist eine gute Lösung. Ich werde die anderen "Schneckenbilder", sowie ich Zeit habe, nach und nach auch so "umrüsten". Falls Sie also mal Zeit haben, schauen Sie nochmals auf die Beschreibungsseite von Turbinella pyrum, und hier besonders auf die Ergänzung im englischen Text sowie die aktualisierten Metadaten. Auch in Zukunft werde ich die Bilder in dieser Form einstellen. Viele Grüße --Llez (talk) 12:54, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
ahh verstehe. eine durchaus probate methode das zu machen. merkwürdig das das hinzufügen der metadaten die dateigröße ändert. meine lösung bisher diese hier: File:Wanfried Panorama edit.jpg. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 15:09, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

Oh that's wonderful all the best to your family and child =) Thanks a lot for investing your time in creating that svg file. Some hints hardly visible in the jpg version available: the eyes have smallish white circles in them (like reflections from the light, see File:Tear_system.svg for example), and the mouth features a red tongue (same as background colour), the face should be white as well. proportions and shapes are good, but i recommend you wait editing until i have called the officials and asked for a higher resolution jpg to help you creating this file. but no hurry, family is more important than wiki-related stuff. consider adding a template to your user page, indicating that you won't be around for a while (see:Template:Wikibreak ). regards, PETER WEIS TALK 16:43, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Hallo Peter!

Du hast das verlinkte Bild nicht noch zufälligerweise im 2/3-Format mit 2000 Px auf der kurzen Seite da? Es steht auf KEB, und ehrlich gesagt, hat mich das "schlauchige" Format von einem pro abgehalten, ein 2/3er Bild bekäme es. Wenn nicht, ist es nicht schlimm, aber ich dachte, dass eine Nachfrage in Ordnung ist. :-) Grüße, Grand-Duc (talk) 16:47, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Danke für deinen Kommentar. Ich habe soeben auf KEB geantwortet. Wenn jemand lieber ein 2/3 Format haben möchte, kann er dies gern haben oder selbst erstellen (meine Bilder sind zumeist in der Public Domain). Für den Artikel finde ich das schlauchige Format interessant. Es weicht vom traditionellen Portraitdesign ab und lädt dazu ein, ein noch besseres Bild zu schießen. Solang kein wesentlich besseres Bild vorhanden ist, ist es eine annehmbare Übergangslösung wie ich finde. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 17:23, 25 February 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Christoph Braun!

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.

your signature[edit]

Hello Peter Weis, may I ask you kindly if you could change to a signature that is (e.g. here) not that uncommon and non-standard that it directly catches the reader's eye and stands out from the "crowd". Mainly: Remove the black background please. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 17:09, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

hi saibo, this has often been an issue. afaik there's no policy against it (only some regulation if you try to set your font size 200%). if there's some official policy against it, i'm quite happy to subordniate. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 17:26, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
Hi Peter, I did perfectly know that this is not an offical policy (it is not metioned in Commons:Signatures). But not everything has to be policy to be followed. ;-) At least you do know that I am not happy to see such black boxes on talk pages. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 20:51, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
i understand and respect your pov on the issue. others feel offended or at least distracted by this layout as well. unless there is an official policy my signature will remain the way it is. a compromise might wind up in the prohibition of individual signatures at all - i could live with that solution. i strongly encourage you to start a discussion on the talk page of the official guideline you referred to. maybe this will end in a proposal for adopting. regards, PETER WEIS TALK 21:37, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
I also do understand the reasons for having a "styled" signature - my signature is styled, too. ;-)
Currently I am not that annoyed from signatures that I would like to invest my time on this topic to get a new policy section accepted. I also do think that not everything must be fixed policy. We all interact with each other and if you (taken as an example) notice one day that many people do not like your signature you will eventually change it. Have a nice weekend! --Saibo (Δ) 23:35, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
I'd also like to weigh in that this annoys me. It's the equivalent of shouting at a meeting. No, there is no firm rule against it, but it's still obnoxious. - Jmabel ! talk 01:46, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
I'd rather like to compare it to Monty Python's SPAM. It's unevitable and everywhere. There were discussions on this issue off-wiki and I appreciate the controversy on this niche topic. It shows that people also care about smaller issues. As for a solution: from my point of view it's either everyone shall do as he likes or no personal signatures at all. Also I very much encourage you to start a discussion on this topic and change the policy on this topic. Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 10:13, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

COM:NARA/Restore[edit]

Hi Peter. I am hoping to get you interested in Commons:National Archives and Records Administration/Restore. As we begin to undertake a major contribution of NARA images, it would be awesome to see as many of the good ones improved upon as possible. Probably the most significant bunch of files to come out of this is the group of 130-180 MB ultra-high-resolution TIFF files of the US Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights, the National Archives' most prized holdings. These six files have never been made public anywhere before! :-)

I know almost nothing about image restoration, including how many people there are around here doing them, or how laborious the process is. So, if anything on that page sounds crazy, please feel free to change it. Actually, beyond just doing image editing, if you want to take ownership of that effort, including finding other volunteer image editors to help with it and identifying images for the project to work on, I would really appreciate it. Dominic (talk) 21:17, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Hi Dominic, thanks for the hint! I started working on File:My Tho, Vietnam. A Viet Cong base camp being. In the foreground is Private First Class Raymond Rumpa, St Paul, Minnesota - NARA - 530621.tif Don't expect any wonders, got some other stuff to do, and restorations take their time (if done thoroughly). I won't produce masses. 1 restoration a month is doable at the moment. Once I've got more time I'll be able to take care of more stuff. Is there a reason why you created a new information template? Is there a reason why it doesn't feature several entries (for example: other versions)? Does it infringe reabability by bots? Regards, PETER WEIS TALK 18:24, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Peter, I can't thank you enough for your work on that photo. It's fantastic. I think the before and after images will make a very good slide when I give presentations, demonstrating the kind of value added when content is donated to Commons! If you have any more information on the restoration process, such as the total time involved, software used, techniques employed, etc., I would be grateful.

I imagine you've found the answers out by now (sorry, I forgot to check back, I guess!), but there is indeed an "other versions". The reason for the new template was because having parameters that map easily onto NARA's metadata fields makes automating the process of translating its catalog records into wiki code in a structured way much easier.

File:Flickr - …trialsanderrors - The hippopotamus, 1874.jpg[edit]

The background on my Flickr images is here: Commons:Flickr batch uploading/Images by Flickr User trialsanderrors. ~ trialsanderrors (talk) 11:00, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

I received your email. Let's keep the conversation here to keep all the information in one place. About your questions: All files taken from my Flickr accounts are jpg conversions from the original tiff files at the LOC with varying levels of digital restoration (the original sizes are no longer visible on Flickr because I discontinued my pro account). My position is that even if I could claim copyright for derivative work I waive it for Wikimedia Commons, so no CC or other creator's license should appear in the info. There should be a link to the Flickr image but solely to establish that the version is not an unmodified version of the LOC file. My interest is mostly in seeing the "File:Flickr - …trialsanderrors -" removed from the file names and the proper (LOC-related) licenses attached to the files. User:Howcheng did most of the work on those that have already been corrected, but he can't be expected to do them all. ~ trialsanderrors (talk) 14:37, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

".VERNETZT#ZUKUNFTSCAMP" auf Kampnagel Hamburg - persönliche Einladung[edit]

Lieber Peter Weis und alle Hamburger Wikipedianer -

wir möchten Euch gerne auf die große Eröffnungswoche auf Kampnagel aufmerksam machen und persönlich einladen teilzunehmen: vom 26. bis 30. September werden sich auf Kampnagel Experten aus den Bereichen Wissenschaft, Politik, Philosophie und natürlich Kunst zu .VERNETZT#DAS ZUKUNFSTCAMP] versammeln: eine Bestandsaufnahme unserer digitalen Gesellschaft und eine Sammlung von Antworten auf die Frage: Wie wollen wir „.vernetzt#“ leben? Demokratie und Euro-Krise in Zeiten von Internet, neue Visionen digitaler Kommunikation und Gesellschaft sowie die partizipatorische und gestalterische Macht des Einzelnen – das sind nur einige von vielen Diskussionsinhalten des „Zukunftcamps“, das von uns zusammen mit der ZEIT Stiftung als großes Bürgerforum geplant ist - bis auf die Vorstellungen abends ist der Eintritt umsonst und es gibt extra Formate, an denen Zuschauer selbst Themen einbringen können. Eingeladene Experten sind u.a. Stéphane Hessel (Autor von „Empört Euch!“), Lina Ben Mhenni (tunesische Internetaktivistin), Richard Barbrook (Politikphilosoph), Alexis Tsipras (Vorsitz linkes Parteienbündnis aus Griechenland), Wolfgang Kraushaar (Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung), Holm Friebe („Zentrale Intelligenz Agentur“), uv.m. Abends gibt es zwei besonders spannende Aufführungen zu erleben: einmal ASSASSINATE ASSANGE beruhend auf mehreren Interviews das die Regisseurin Angela Richter mit Julian Assange geführt hat sowie Hintergrundrecherchen zum „Deep“-, oder „Dark-Web“, und zweitens einen Tanzabend des Choreografen Hofesh Shechter UPRISING/THE ART OF NOT LOOKING BACK. Am Freitag, den 28.September, gibt es im Anschluss an die Aufführung von „Assassinate Assange“ ein entsprechendes Panel DARK WEB, DEEP WEB, INVISIBLE WEB das Euch vielleicht besonders interessieren könnte.

Es würde mich sehr freuen, wenn wir Dein Interesse für die Veranstaltung gewinnen konnten und Du bist herzlich eingeladen mich wegen Kartenreservierungen für die Aufführungen zu kontaktieren – darüber hinaus wäre es auch toll, wenn Du gbffls. bei allen Hamburger Wikipedianern auf diese Veranstaltung aufmerksam machen würdest- wir hoffen, in Hamburg und deutschlandweit, den Diskurs zur digitalen Gesellschaft neu anzuregen!

Hello Peter Weis, Viewing the contents page of the newsletter this month in GLAM I notice there is no German section yet. I noticed you are one of the authors of earlier versions and maybe you can write this time as well about the GLAM related things happening in Germany in the past month. Also Wiki Loves Monuments can be described. I hope Germany can be written about too. Thanks! Greetings - Romaine (talk) 22:24, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

PS: It would be nice if you are interested to mention your name here (for Germany) if you are willing to write some editions in the future as well. Romaine (talk) 22:30, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
Hello Romaine, thanks for pointing this out. I'm currently working on an article about the QRpedia press date in the Hamburg Museum. I'm afraid I won't be able to make a statement on WLM since I wasn't involved in this process. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 22:37, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
Ah that's great! :-) Very interesting, I would like to see QRpedia been more spread around the world, I think it is the future. I understand not everything can be written by every one, but QRpedia is greeat too! :-) Romaine (talk) 22:53, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Could use some advice[edit]

Hi there Peter, I could use some advice on this issue --> User_talk:Cirt#File:Mr._Hankey_the_Christmas_Poo_says_Howdy_Ho_and_Happy_Holidays.jpg, any input you might have would be appreciated as I respect your views on these matters, -- Cirt (talk) 14:19, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

✓ Done Unfortunately it's rather unlikely to keep these files on the Commons. You might want to consider asking the copyright holder though. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 16:21, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thank you. What about those that are Cosplay? Can those be kept? Can I upload more of those? -- Cirt (talk) 17:58, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
It depends - Commons:Copyright_rules_by_subject_matter#Costumes_and_cosplay provides some thoughts on this issue. In the end it remains a case by case decision. You might upload some which you deem suitable and requests comments on Commons:Village pump/Copyright. Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 02:01, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Template:Artwork and mass-produced art.[edit]

Hey, Peter! While I appreciate your work, do be a little careful using LoC information for prints: {{Artwork}} was made for paintings by and large, for mass-produced artworks, though, institution and location are meaningless, since this sort of work can, and likely does, exist in many places; Instead, source alone should be filled in, otherwise, it's kind of misleading. Likewise, Accession number is, again, a field that presumes there's only one copy; instead, this too should be rolled into source.

Finally, when the LoC says "1 print (lithograph)" the medium field should be reduced to "lithograph", because that's what the medium is; "print" is an entirely generic term.

Basically, treating these sort of works too much like painting actually makes things a bit confusing. =) Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:48, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Hej Adam, thanks for your remarks. @Artwork The {{Artwork}} template's use has changed over time. Commons still lacks a decent metadata standard and many GLAM institutions tend to use this template for their metadata. Institutions and people like me are looking for a proper way to transform their metadata to Wikimedia Commons without mutilation. Both {{Information}} and {{Artwork}} are limited - personally I consider the latter to be more suitable. @location&institution I don't think they are meaningless at all. We are not showing a generic representation of a certain artwork (even if mass-produced), but a digital copy of a unique item. And this item has a certain physical location and its digital copy was provided by a certain institution. I don't see how an artworks' dissemination should be an indicator for the location and institution parameter. @Accession number Abusing this paramter for LoC's reproduction number is a pragmatic approach. Creating a separate artwork template (see {{NARA-image-full}} for instance) or adding a new parameter sounds like a bad idea to me - this might harm usability and consistency a lot. I think we could add the reproduction number to the notes parameter instead if you don't like the accession number solution. Any thoughts? @"1 print (lithograph)" +1. {{Technique}} could be a suitable solution. Feel free to suggest features over at meta:MARCsman. In MARC21, physical description is specified in tag 300, see http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd300.html - ideally the MARCsman tool would automatically add Category:Lithographs. It would be marvellous to find people who are willing to establish a suitable metadata standard for Wikimedia Commons. A niche topic for the average user, but nonetheless important for the increasing number of GLAM cooperation. I'll continue using {{Artwork}} and welcome constructive feedback like yours. Maybe we'll end up with a proper solution after all. Metadata isn't rocket science =) Regards, Peter Weis (talk) 03:53, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

This Month in GLAM: January[edit]

Hello Peter Weis, You have written before for the newsletter This Month in GLAM. I see Germany is missing regarding the edition about January 2013, do you perhaps have any idea what GLAM activities were done in Germany in January? Can you perhaps write about those? Or do you know who I can ask to write about it? Thanks! Greetings - Romaine (talk) 15:19, 7 February 2013 (UTC)

So. Schickt erst mal mit bearbeiten. @Unterkategorie +1 Habe gerade Category:Making of Sammlung Historischer Fahrzeuge Braunschweig angelegt. Die Mail von Medvedev "Bilderflut" hast du ja jetzt gelesen. Ich denke dass die Mail schon als Position gegen das Verfahren "erst mal alles hochladen" zu lesen ist. Im Ton und in der Sache finde ich die Mail von Medvedev allerdings durchaus berechtigt (ich gehe davon aus das er die bisherigen Diskussionen zum Thema nicht kennt) - kein Vergleich zum Gebashe rund um die Fotoflüge und andere Diskussionen. Werde wohl noch mal per Mail in die Runde antworten und versuchen das zu Kontextualisieren und vor allem auf Medvedevs Fragen zu antworten - ich habe nicht den Eindruck das hier jeder den gleichen Sachstand hat. Raboes Ansatz unterscheidet sich ja noch mal von dem von Martina, auch dazu wäre es vermutlich nicht verkehrt die Beweggründe bzw. den Workflow zu erklären. Insofern lese ich die Mail von Medvedev als Sammlung ernstgemeinter Fragen und Diskussionspunkte und nicht als unterschwelligen PA auf den Workflow von Martina oder Raboe.

Re: Letter of recommendation[edit]

Hi. In Italy we give them out, mostly because of some sites managed directly by the ministry, with which we had a formal agreement. The international team can't give you one, but depending on the sort of letter you need the chapter should be able to do something like this (or not be able for lack of contracts with the entities in question). Remember that it's still quite a bit of work. --Nemo 11:06, 12 September 2013 (UTC)

Hi Nemo, thanks for your fast response. Would be great to get something official and global from WMF for that matter. A simple form stating that user:x is a wiki photographer would definitely help. I think it would be quite tough to create a more sophisticated certification system of sorts. Local chapters could help as well, especially considering local laws and regulations. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 11:16, 12 September 2013 (UTC)
The WMF will never do this. At most they'd do it in English, look at their shop.wikimedia.org which is impossible to translate by design. With your chapter you have very good chances, just be nice and don't expect them to send you one within 1 business day. :) --Nemo 12:28, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
I think it's not a high priority issue right no, so action from WMF is most unlikely. Given enough pressure (i.e. requests) they might do something. WMDE provided a request for accreditation the very same day I asked for it. Germans are German. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 19:54, 15 September 2013 (UTC)

Wiki Loves Monuments 2014 startet in Kürze[edit]

LUSITANA WLM 2011 d.svg

Hallo Christoph Braun,

in Kürze ist es wieder soweit. Der nun schon traditionelle Fotowettbewerb Wiki Loves Monuments wird im September zum vierten Mal stattfinden. In ähnlicher Form hatte unlängst der Wettbewerb "Wiki Loves Earth" eine erfolgreiche Premiere. Zu allen bisherigen vier Wettbewerben haben seit 2011 gut 3000 unterschiedliche Teilnehmer (User) ihren Beitrag geleistet. Du warst dabei, und bist auch herzlich eingeladen, am bevorstehenden WLM-Wettbewerb wieder dabei zu sein.

Allein in Deutschland wurden in den letzten drei Jahren im Rahmen von WLM rund 100.000 Fotos zu den insgesamt ca. 850.000 Kulturdenkmalen bundesweit hochgeladen. Jährlich haben sich mehrere Hundert Wiki-Fotographen daran beteiligt. Auch im kommenden Denkmalmonat wird dies gewiss wieder der Fall sein. Der Tag des offenen Denkmals am 14. September bietet bundesweit vielfältige Möglichkeiten, Denkmale nicht nur von außen, sondern auch von innen zu fotografieren. Denkmallisten sind dabei ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt und zugleich auch Ziel der Einbindung der Fotos. Auch in diesem Jahr sind wieder neue Denkmallisten hinzugekommen, die hilfreich bei der Planung von individuellen oder Gruppen-Fototouren sind und auf eine Bebilderung warten, wie z.B. zu Görlitz oder Zittau. Unter den Landeshauptstädten fehlt nur noch Stuttgart. Aber auch hier ist Licht in Sicht.

In der Mitte Deutschlands hat die Denkmallandschaft der thüringischen Landeshauptstadt Erfurt nun das Licht der Wikipedia-Welt entdeckt. Mehr als 50 Tabellen enthalten 3.700 Denkmale. Allein die wunderschön restaurierte Altstadt umfasst 1.800 Denkmale. Eine von WMDE geförderte WLM-Fototour nach Erfurt am Wochenende vom 29. – 31. August lädt herzlich ein, diese einzigartige Kulturlandschaft zu dokumentieren. Mehr Informationen findest Du auf der Projektseite.

Wir freuen uns auf Deine weiteren Beiträge für Wikimedia-Projekte.

Viel Spaß beim größten Fotowettbewerb der Wiki(m/p)edia wünscht Dir das Orga-Team.

( Bernd Gross, 16. August 2014)

File:Portrait of Henri Frenay, head and shoulders ppmsca.13371 edit.jpg[edit]

Hey there! I was eyeing this, and was pondering it for restoration. Then I realised - it's already restored really well. I just wanted to check: you're the person I should credit when I nominate it at the English Wikipedia Featured Pictures, right? Adam Cuerden (talk) 06:20, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi Adam, yes I restored this image. Back in the day I used {{retouched picture}} or simply add a sentence to {{Artwork}}'s note section to indicate my work. If you know of a decent way to attribute the restorer, please let me know. Would be great if there's a sustainable approach that includes a file's metadata. FYI If you are still looking for a new restoration project I would suggest having a look at Category:CH-BAR Collection First World War Switzerland - all images were replace by positives, but the underlying full resolution tiff negatives are still available through the file history. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 13:51, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
I usually just name myuself in the "author" or "photographer" field. Anyway, I'll be nominating that soon. (And, CRAP. File:Abfertigen_einer_Meldung_durch_Brieftauben_-_CH-BAR_-_3240471_-_restoration.jpg was done off the reduced copy. I need to restart it.) Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:05, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
Looks like we could use an extra field in {{Information}} and {{Artwork}} to indicate editors of restorations, derivative works and such. "Edited by" or something similar could work. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 17:37, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
I think {{Artwork}} is the bigger problem. Information uses a more generic field. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:52, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Neither provides a designated field for secondary authors, which would improve machine-readability. That's especially relevant for licences under which authors of derivatives have to be mentioned too, e.g. Creative Commons licences. I appreciate your comments on this so far; maybe we should have this discussion at a more frequented page. Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 06:55, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

If you haven't seen, check your talk page on en-wiki. =) Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:43, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Dial Aaaaaaaargh! for Nikon[edit]

Heeey!

As you might've noticed, I'm finally making good use of the Edinburgh photography workshop training. However, I've a friend here who made the terrible, terrible mistake of buying a Nikon. Are there any "M for Manual" training notes or such for that? She can even read German, if that's all that's available. --Brian McNeil / talk 12:31, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

@Brian McNeil <grin> Good to see that you keep taking pictures - wish I had more time atm to do the same. There are several fairly basic tutorials such as this one or that one. If you could find out what Nikon model she uses, I could find a more suitable tutorial. Additionally it would be good to know if she's more interested in the general mechanics behind manual mode or specific use cases (e.g. night photography). Regards, Christoph Braun (talk) 13:01, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
  • I've got to really like taking photos; well, now that I've a DSLR it's an actual joy. I've even got a Wikinews Featured Article out of it, plus — hopefully — another in the works.
In a unmistakably Scottish approach to learning, I'm filling out Category:Pubs in Edinburgh. This has the added bonus of getting invited to half the small pub gigs in the city, and see a lot of my photos regularly used. --Brian McNeil / talk 13:27, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
