Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Smallbones!

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.

White margins are there for a reason[edit]

Files like File:N.A.Naidenov (1884). Views of Moscow. 58. Anglican.png were uploaded with margins for a reason:

  • margins contain the year when Naidenov took the photograph. This is critical in some cases, when there's more then one photo of the same subject. Publication year alone is insufficient (and sometimes misleading)

Please if there's a need for a cropped or downscaled version, upload it under a different name and link both cropped and original together (cf. File:Church of Resurrection near Danilov Monastery full.png and File:Church of Resurrection near Danilov Monastery crop.png). This, of course, applies to any photo stock with "inconvenient" but historical text, someone's handwriting (the Bains Collection) etc.

Same with all trim and retouching jobs - edits to File:Voznesensky 8-5 May 2009 1200px.jpg were too radical to be pasted on top of the source file. They need a different file name. BTW, the photo was made half an hour before sunset - it had to be dark to be realistic. NVO (talk) 17:49, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Warner Theater[edit]

Hi, I've been emptying Category:Movie theaters since it is a duplicate of Category:Cinemas. There was a Category:Warner Theatre, Erie, Pennsylvania so I put the pictures you took in there but now I'm not sure if they are actually the same theater. Could you please have a look? --IIVeaa (talk) 21:13, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I had also mistakenly given the wrong coordinates to the Erie theater. fixed that just now.--IIVeaa (talk) 23:52, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Coordinate correction on Tafts Lincoln the Lawyer.JPG[edit]

I changed the coordinates on File:Tafts Lincoln the Lawyer.JPG because the coordinates appeared to have been over a spot two houses from the statue. If the camera really was at that spot, let me know.

Thanks for the complement on the National Register of Historic Places listings in Southern Chester County, Pennsylvania pics[edit]

I had made a bunch of random pictures on a bike ride last fall and then realized that a couple fit into the page. That inspired me to go out and hunt down some more. Didn't realize till later that you (Smallbones) had done so much. Really a nice project you created. Had admired the File:Worth J Rural HD Chesco.JPG picture the first time I saw it. It really is an idyllic spot. Will see if I can get another shot in the spring (often ride past it or hike in Stroud Preserve which it borders). Looks like you did a thorough job of covering West Chester. And the Philly statues are great. Hoping to make it to the Philly wiknic this year. Be nice to meet.

Adding categories to my pictures?[edit]

Uh oh...I haven't been adding categories to my pictures. I wasn't aware this was something to be done, and I'm not sure how to go about doing it either. Where and how do I enter the information, and how do I know what categories are available to assign to a given picture file? By the way, in my travels through Evanston this weekend I took quite a few more to add to National_Register_of_Historic_Places_listings_in_Evanston,_Illinois, but I'll refrain until I can figure out how to categorize properly. Thshriver (talk) 01:43, 16 April 2012 (UTC)

So, is the general idea with categories to make them as specific as possible without overlapping? I really had no idea which ones to include in the list, so I took a few shots in the dark. And yes, feel free to edit away, I'm not offended at all. This is all very much over my head and I don't really understand it. Thshriver (talk) 03:06, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Hi Smallbones,

You added a picture to WLM uploaded by another user, I took the category of again see here).

The user did not provide an ID for the monument so it's not sure at all he wanted to participate (you could ask ofcourse). If you want to add an image to the contest please use the {{Wiki Loves Monuments|us}} template, not a direct insert into the category, and please make sure ID is provided.

Problem[edit]

Hey Smallbones,

I had a problem, and since this is the first time I've used a wiki of any kind and you were nice enough to provide that info about monuments I thought to ask you. On the list of Historic places for Monongalia County, West Virginia, the post photo link for the Chancery Historic District is only a picture, not an actual link to post photos and I didn't know how to change that or if I even could. Is there anything that can be done, cause I have some great photos of the district. Thank you. - Stryker33 (talk) 10:50, 05 Sept 2012 (UTC)

RE: African American Vicksburg sculpture[edit]

Hi Smallbones.

I hope this is the correct place to respond to you. Thanks for locating the sculptor of the monument. I agree all art displayed in a natinal park should be public. I tried to answer by using the "contact us" section. Not sure if you saw my comment or not. I wanted to place these pictures I uploaded in the I love Monuments contest but accidentally uploaded using the regular wizard. Does it make a difference? If so how can I correct it. I am new at Wiki uploading but have used the information many times in the past It is a great site.

  • Unfortunately, that statue of William Penn is by Frank Gaylord, who vigorously enforces his copyright for his work. Since U.S. law does not recognize an exemption under panorama (e.g., copyrighted works included as part of a larger panoramic image), I fear the Penn statue cannot be depicted. - Tim1965 (talk) 20:25, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
no, i fear you are mistaken. vigorously, lol, you mean he succumbed to the siren call of a contingency fee lawyer? (and got his just deserts) panorama? - see Commons:De minimis, but i see smallbone's crop makes the point nicely. also since it's 1982, it could be public domain, if no notice, published in newspaper, and not registered within 5 years [11]; see Template:PD-US-1978-89. apparantly not registered [12] Slowking4†@1₭ 15:04, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

That would be Lightroom tagging some of my pics with a watermark. I'm still getting used to the new software, I'll be more aware in the future, and I'll re-upload the H. H. Warner Building PIC! :D Also, I have no clue if this is the correct way to correspond or not so feel free to correct me. :D

Wiki Loves Monuments 2012 - Old State House, Boston, Massachusetts, USA[edit]

Hello Smallbones, I hope this is the proper venue to contact you. My girlfriend is a representative of The Bostonian Society, the organization that maintains Boston's Old State House, and she stumbled upon this very interesting contest. She asked if I would reach out to someone involved with the proper team to ask if there was a way that the Old State House can aid or somehow officially recognize this contest and encourage its visitors to participate. I apologize, this request isn't very well-worded, but if you could reply here at your earliest convenience, I would most certainly appreciate it. Hope to hear back from you soon, GlassCobra (talk) 01:23, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Your faith in bots seems misplaced[edit]

The night you asked me to stop adding the unreviewed cat to pictures, I uploaded 8 more of my own (without the cat). 2 days later nothing has been done with them, and the total count is off by 15.

Thanks Samllbones[edit]

I am not sure if I am in the right place to respond to your request from the general page on the Monument contest. My question had to do with a photo I uploaded to general commons by mistake as I was trying to contribute to the collection of photos from the list of NHR for Monroe county Fl. My user name is capedoryus and the image I deleted was Armory. I tried to link the photo to the contest but could not so I deleted the photo to enter the photo in the contest. The concept of a contest is not important but I would like to have the photo in the NHR listing. (NHR National Historic Register) Thanks for all the work you do.

Thanks! Saw some of the other local photos and was in awe of all your pics. Keep up the great work! I take pics in chambana mostly for use as skins in 3d models for Google Earth. I thought some might come in handy for the monument project. Narasinha (talk) 15:25, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

thanks !!! also, in reviewing your laurel hill cemetery photo [25], i failed to find it on the siris list [26]. more info would be nice. Slowking4†@1₭ 21:48, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
I'd have to say it's part of the architecture, see File:Spink tomb West Laurel Hill.JPG. Probably pre-1900 (cemetery opened 1869, but doesn't put dates on the tombs). Despite what William Penn might tell you, ever since the WMF opinion came out, I always look for copyright notices. Never run into one yet in a cemetery. See the *West* Laurel Hill category. Smallbones (talk) 22:33, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
i guess i'm spoiled by adams memorial; siris is so extensive, it's remarkable when they don't have it. could be under the different name. i would say it has some artistic merit beyond generic figure, this could be paul manship.
i'm with you, the sculptors don't much care, even Frank Gaylord didn't register, it's just that the rules changed the presumption. and people take the last installation as publication rather than first. (another lost argument here [27]); so now we have to get emailed permission; hard to see the point. i think i got most of the sculpture "monuments", even the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Alby_Gallatin.JPG (very polite sculptor).
and it's not that they can't shoot gaylord, it's just put it on flickr, and pick one for "non-free" english wikipedia. (starting with the one there - we could refight "minimize fair use" <sigh> ). Slowking4†@1₭ 21:48, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Hey, thank you for your help[edit]

you were right. and thank you for your help. When I uploaded only one picture I was able to choose the license to cc:0, but when uploading multiple files, that was not an option. anyway, see you around :) Drorzm (talk) 23:51, 30 September 2012 (UTC)

Uploads in the deadline[edit]

Hello Peter,

I was contacted by a little turtle which couldn't get two files [30] [31] inside the contest in time, for a difference of less than a couple of minutes. She apparently started the submission a little before the deadline but finished after it. See my talk her talk.

IMHO we should accept them as valid submissions, but I don't feel I should be taking that decision, so wanted to check with a WLM-US organiser first.

Best regards

Platonides (talk) 20:17, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Both look like they started uploading on time. I hadn't realized that there would be a delay. Both are now included in the contest, one has been nominated for further consideration. Sorry for any misunderstandings. Smallbones (talk) 21:08, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Thank you both for reviewing my submission concerns, Platonides and Smallbones. -- LaPetiteTortue (talk) 14:36, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, but I dare to disagree with your opinion, Peter. Deadline is deadline, and pictures that didn't make it should not be part of the competition. I know that it's harsh, but that's the rule; you can see yourself what happens if we grant people liberty to break it. odder (talk) 21:02, 4 October 2012 (UTC)

O of IA[edit]

Order of Independent Americans

In the file you uploaded, you asked to be told what "O of IA" stood for. It is the Order of Independent Americans. The refs I found (blog, Flickr description, 1947 obit) would not pass as reliable sources, but they offer a place to start if you need it.

I have altered the description of the file to reflect the order. Thundersnow (talk) 04:11, 6 October 2012 (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

Please answer my Question[edit]

Hi there my friend! I have a Question and need an answer as soon as possible. I'm translating all NFL teams wiki articles to Arabic wiki, can I use their logos to put on the Arabic wiki or not? b/c it says that the team's logos are all under COPY RIGHTS? ... for example, can I use this logo File:San Diego Chargers logo.svg in the team's Arabic wiki article or not (without creating any problems for myself)? And can I use the NFL logo on the Arabic wiki article? --- I'll be waiting for your answers, Thank you very much! --Qrhoo (talk) 04:49, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

I'm not an expert, especially about the Arabic Wiki. Each Wiki has its own rules. In the English Wiki, I think this is acceptable under the "fair use" exception to copyright, but "fair use" images are not acceptable on Commons. Possible solution: copy the logos from the English Wikipedia to the Arabic and use them there, if fair use is acceptable on the Arabic Wiki. Another possible angle: SOME of the logos may be out of copyright, e.g. the Bears and the Packers may have started using them in the early 1920's so the copyright has run out. Or other teams may have forgotten to renew the copyright. But it's very likely that any team's logo from after 1960 would have a copyrighted logo. So in short, go by the Arabic Wiki's rules.

No FOP for 3D sculptures installed in the US after 1977[edit]

  • There is just no Freedom of Panorama (FOP) for sculptures in the USA for sculptures and 3D art works installed after 1977 according to US copyright law. That is why This image was deleted from Commons and placed here on wikipedia on a non-free fair use claim instead. This image of artifacts at the Vietnam memorial was also deleted.
  • In contrast, a Vietnam Memorial artwork remains used on Commons. Why? Because at the base of the artwork is the statement that it was created and installed in 1976--thereby meeting US FOP laws that 3D artworks and sculptures are copyright free if they are installed by the end of 1977. However, if you do have permission from the sculptor itself, then I imagine the image may be kept. I will give you the benefit of the doubt, however. Regards, --Leoboudv (talk) 08:24, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes there is explicit permission from the sculptor for anybody to photograph the sculpture. Smallbones (talk) 12:26, 4 May 2013 (UTC)

Wrong venue mate[edit]

en:Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Blocked_admin_meatpuppeting_to_block_account.28s.29_here.3F is the wrong venue buddy. If you have an issue with me on Commons, the correct venue is COM:AN/U, not en:WP:AN/I. And if you decide to take the issue to COM:AN/U here, then you best be sure that you have your facts straight, because if you don't shit can boomerang right back at you; particularly when one looks at that thread you are setting yourself up for it looking like cross-wiki harassment. So go ahead, and do what you think needs to be done, but please don't talk shit about me on a project which is totally irrelevant to the issue at hand. russavia (talk) 03:39, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Namechanges[edit]

First, I'd like to thank you for being polite and reasonable. Second, I'd like to apologize for the factual Hall/Mall error - mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I genuinely believed that you had made a spelling mistake, and took advantage of what I thought was a needed correction to make the name more precise and -- this part is important -- less ambiguous.

My philosophy on filenames is that they should be as precise as is necessary for them to be informative and unambiguous, so as to facilitate use by humans. You may find these talkpage posts (from April 2013) to be informative; the tone is slightly more hostile than our current exchange, because it's a response to a mildly hostile message.

File:Goddess of Democracy DC defy censorship.JPG[edit]

Can you please fix the licencing of this photo, and any other images of this statue that you have uploaded, as it should be licenced under CC-BY-SA-3.0 and GFDL at the very least. You can't release it under CC-0 given Thomas Marsh's release. If you are not sure how this should be licenced and attributed, then feel free to drop me a line and I will be glad to help. Thanks, russavia (talk) 02:20, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

I've released my photo CC0. If you think that the license is otherwise incorrect, please ask another admin to fix it, but you should stay as far away as possible from any image of this statue, given your previous actions with it.

If I was unclear above, let me be precise. Stay off of my talk page. Smallbones (talk) 03:30, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, you can not release your photo as CC0, because this goes against the CC-BY-SA and GFDL licence. In regards to the CC licence that Thomas Marsh has authorised for photos of the statue to be made available under. If you peruse the [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ CC-BY-SA-3.0 licence, the important part of this is:
"ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original."
What this means, is that you have to licence the photo under the same licence. Now, you are able to waive your right to be attributed as part of this licence, but you are not able to release the photo into the public domain using CC0.
Does this make sense to you? Would you like some help in fixing the licencing requirements on this photo? I am full bottle on the licences, so am happy to help you with this, if you so desire. russavia (talk) 04:29, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Quit hassling me and stay off this page. Smallbones (talk) 04:36, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Smallbones, you have to understand that this issue can't be ignored, and it is indeed an issue. I am happy to fix the licencing, as I have stated a few times, but I need to know without a shadow of a doubt whether you wish to waive your right to attribution. If this is the case, please affirm that here and, again, I will be happy to fix the licencing. russavia (talk) 05:43, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
Already fixed by @Jkadavoor. Thanks, Jee! odder (talk) 10:24, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

Actually, Russavia is half right. The file must have a CC-BY-SA license for the sculptor's copyright because that is what he gave us. It can have a CC-0 or CC-BY-SA for the photographer's copyright. As it stands now, attribution is required for the sculpture, but no attribution is required for the photograph, which is, I think, the way you want it. .     Jim . . . .
