Women's Football Photos[edit]

Hey, thanks for the Freedom photos you've posted. It's nice to see articles in Wikipedia using images of women on the soccer field. If you happen to have any action shots, I'd love to add some to the women's sports pages I help maintain/create. Drop me a line on my wikipedia user page if you have a chance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Deeb. Thanks again! Deeb 10:58, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

editing comments etc[edit]

Thanks for the comments and changes at Wayne Ray. I found the Canadian Photographers Category, and as I am and have been doing photography for several decades, with photo credits in books and small magazines as well as a few shows, and a very large photo collection and archives, i thought I would put up a sample of my own. On my wikipedia user page, a friend thought it was vanity thing and asked me not to upload any more. YOU wrote "(rv - We should have an inter wiki link and a category; If there is a reason not to; please explain on talk. I don't understand, this is standard)" Do you mean a Category for Photo Collage and a Category for Photo Poems?? Also do you think this is a vanity page, how should I have approached the topic? answer on my photo talk page WayneRay 14:24, 20 June 2006 (UTC)WayneRay

Tara[edit]

Hi Rob... we haven't bumped into each other for ages but I just noticed your edit on the new page for Tara Conner... great to finally get some free images of her (although, as usual, they are less than flatterig -- what is it about these free images that makes beauty queens look blah?) PageantUpdater 01:56, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Image:TaraConneratWillowGrove3.jpg was a nice find on your part. I'm curious how you found it. I've found the Google Image search hasn't been updated in months (at least for my typical searches, like this). I largely stopped looking some time ago, as I stopped finding anything remotely new. I was starting to to get the feeling I've seen every photo on a U.S. military web site. --Rob 02:11, 20 September 2006 (UTC)
In the Miss USA year in the life page there were pics from the event... seeing them I googled "Willow Grove Air Reserve Station" -- found the website and they were on the first page! PageantUpdater 07:34, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Re: Commons as source[edit]

Ok. I didn't have any guidance before so I did what seemed right, but you make a good argument, so I'll do it that way from now on. Thanks for the input. --MECUtalk 00:25, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Request[edit]

I happened to come across this image while wandering through Commons. This particular image has severe light balance problems; also, given its dimensions, I assume it's been cropped. Is it possible for you to make available the original image from the camera? I'm certain that I could recrop and rebalance the image to obtain a superior end result. Even just doing an "auto levels" in Photoshop dramatically improves the quality of the photo. If you could see your way clear to making the originals available, I think Commons would benefit as a result. Looking through your gallery, I see that virtually all of your photographs are overexposed; this suggests that your camera is one of those that consistently overexposes, which means that you have to adjust for this in postprocessing, and it doesn't appear that you've done this. Making all of your originals available would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your consideration. I hope to hear back from you. Kelly Martin 14:06, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi. Thanks for your comments. here at FlickR. They're all licensed under CC-BY-SA, so feel free to use any. Ultimately, the solution, is for me to get a decent camera. But, if you can make anything good out of what I took, please do. I've found it overly time consuming to upload lots of images to Commons, so I've been more selective as to what I upload to Commons, and left freely licensed images on FlickR, for people do with, as they wish. --Rob 00:35, 6 May 2007 (UTC) Update: I just remembered, I did upload them to Commons (not just FlickR), and they're at Joe Ceci. --Rob 02:04, 6 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for this. I didn't even know it was possible to copy from a pdf! I'll have to go back and fix some of the others then too. Btw, prize for the beauty queen with the most public domain image? It'd have to go to Rachel Smith (!) PageantUpdater 09:41, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

Is that possible for all PDFs? I've had success with one but can't get it to work with others... PageantUpdater 21:36, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure, can you given some example(s) of a PDF it doesn't work on? --Rob 21:58, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
I've tried it with the this pdf (pic of Chelsea & Shelley) and this one (Miss Florida). Neither works. PageantUpdater 22:46, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Are you using Adobe Reader version 8? I had no problem doing it. I just clicked on the image, and then right-clicked, and selected "Copy Image", than pasted into an image editor. I uploaded three image updates. I didn't update Image:Chelsea Cooley Shelley Hennig GTMO.png, because there was improvement in quality that I could see. But Image:Kylie Williams.png, Image:Kylie Williams 1.png, and Image:Kylie Williams 2.png look better in full resolution. --Rob 23:45, 16 March 2008 (UTC)
Aha! I realised that the first one I did at uni (with version 8) and the rest I tried to do at home (version 7). Thanks for that. PageantUpdater 01:45, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Blurring face in image[edit]

Hi! I was just wondering, would you object to blurring the face of the person-who-looks-like-a-minor in Image:Aryan Guard 05.jpg? Someone related to the whole thing asked via OTRS if I could do it for them and reupload, and out of courtesy I felt it would be appropriate to ask you first.

interior images of Florence buildings[edit]

hi there Thivierr ,

I was at the Uffizi just two days ago, and they made it VERY clear that any photography of the interior in any way is completely forbidden. Now this has been the case in many buildings that I visited in Florence and Siena, including various churches, etc. I am not making up these rules, if interior images are not allowed then they clearly should not have been taken in the first place. Gryffindor 11:06, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

Nobody is disputing that's what they told you. They have the legal right to ask a photogrpaher to leave, or refuse entry. But, they don't own copyright of photos they didn't take and didn't commission. This is a common issue, that's already been dealt with. --Rob 14:05, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
I am completely aware that I work for the Commons and not the museum, thank you for reminding me. Fact remains that if photography is not permitted in the interiors in the first place (and I am not talking about scans of paintings etc. only of images of the rooms themselves), then what are these images doing if they are not supposed to exist in the first place? Gryffindor 14:50, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi there. We had a discussion once about the usage of interior images in museums. Now that the issue has been made clear, I have put a note to inform other users about the Commons usage. Do you think the note is fine the way it sounds? Category:Interior of the Villa la Petraia? Gryffindor 14:06, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
Hi that seems just fine to me. Also, I wish to apologize for previously being rude to you. --Rob 16:08, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
No apologies needed, really it's totally fine. It was a misunderstanding, I now understand how the situation works but I just think it would be good for other users who might have similar concerns to inform them with this note, it would save the Commons some work I hope. Glad to hear you are fine with it. sincerely Gryffindor 11:13, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Library and Archives Canada non-public domain images[edit]

Possible Photo Deletion[edit]

Hi! I wasn't quite sure how to fill some of the things out when I started, but I think I might've updated it correctly. The photographer was Michael Hrizuk and we do have a signed agreement that the rights have been fully turned over to me, so I can distribute as I like. I hope that clears it up. This is my first time using Wikipedia, so I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all. It can be a little confusing. The 'Niki Barr' page really needed to be updated because a lot of the information was really out-dated and didn't portray the artist accurately. I'm updating new press, as well, and all will be credited. Thanks!

Deleted Photos & Artist's Rights[edit]

Reason for removal of other photos... Though I'm still trying to grasp the concept of Wikipedia, there has to be some rights on the artist's (Niki Barr) behalf as to what can be posted and not posted? I mean that in a very non-aggressive sense, but more to learn how exactly the rights are distributed on this site. I am all for the photographer's rights and will post properly, now that I know. However, the photos posted on here previously were posted without permission by 'Niki Barr'. Is there a process one would have to go through to have those rights approved?

Deleted Photos & Artist's Rights[edit]

No one is fighting over anything here and I'm sorry if the words came across as such. I didn't intend to argue at all and don't intend to. I'm just trying to understand Wikipedia better, as I'm very new to it. Anyways, the recent photo was posted, mostly because it was an image we have the rights to and it's one of the few of just Niki. Most of the others are of the full band, which should probably be properly filed under 'Niki Barr Band'. Many of the performance photographers of Niki Barr are often unknown, as they're mostly fans photos. I might be able to dig up some artist released photos we have, though. Can photos be posted if the photographer is unknown? Thanks for your help in this! Nikibarrband (talk) 02:51, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Thivierr!

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.

Kat Von D[edit]

Hello, i saw you fixed this pic here, i wandered if you could do the same for this one? Thanks a lot. --Bls2009 (talk) 10:18, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

I took both photos, but it was User:Äppelmos who fixed the one image. --Rob (talk) 23:58, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

You regular and "fixed" versions of the Kat Von D pic have been uploaded separately. You should either delete the one or upload the "fixed" version as an update to the old version (also while specifying how the changes were made). Perhaps the easiest thing to do would be to upload the "fixed" image as an update to the old version, and then delete the "fixed" version. This would require changing the articles linked to the "fixed" version. I could do it for you if you don't object. Jason Quinn (talk) 20:56, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

The reason for two separate version, is that somebody else fixed the image. Normally, when doing this, it's recommended you create a different name. You normally only re-use the name, when you alter the image yourself. However, it's a minor (but good) fix, so I'm fine if they're put under one name. If you feel it's better to do it, as one name, please go ahead and do it. In fact, I'd be fine if you just deleted the old version entirely, as I see no real use for it. So, whatever you feel is best, I'll support. --Rob (talk) 23:47, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

It seems that you are the uploader as well on Flickr as here. There are two ways to fix this problem. First you might change the license at Flickr, or second you might send a permission throug OTRS. Kind regards, Lymantria (talk) 16:22, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
I appreciate all the good work you and others are doing to cleanup copyvio. However, I think what's happened here is separate people have managed to create a mess, no individual would ever do by intention. I personally took this photo and uploaded directly to Commons. I properly tagged and described it. It is beyond question a free image. At some other time (not sure order) I happened to upload it to FlickR. I left it as "All Rights Reserved" on FlickR, because frankly, it's easier to do that. Now, for some reason, somebody decided to add a link to FlickR and request a review, which is frankly a stupid thing to do. Now, suddenly it's being reviewed, failed, deleted, and it's crop version is deleted. Under no circumstances will I "fix" this. There is nothing whatsoever to fix.
In fact, I can tell you that there are many other self-created images I uploaded to Commons that I have on FlickR (or elsewhere) marked "All Rights Reserved". These images were all uploaded under a free license to Commons. Elsewhere, I don't worry about how they're described. Often, on those other sites (mainly FlickR) they're mixed with other images that are truly "All Rights Reserved" so it's simpler and safer to say "All Rights Reserved". Once uploaded under a free license (by definition) the fact it's uploaded as "All Rights Reserved" elsewhere is legally meaningless. Pretty much every self-created image I've uploaded to Commons could be (in past or future) uploaded elsewhere as "All Rights Reserved".
The real problem here, is that people should not be editing the legal declarations of other people. If I create an image and upload it, it's for me to describe it, and declare where it came from. If I fail to do the job properly, then it should be deleted. But, nobody should come by and mess up what was previously ok. --Rob (talk) 21:23, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
I am sorry about the mistake, I assumed the photos were copyrighted on flickr and therefore unuseable. I apologize for the mistake and misunderstanding, and have fixed the two photos. - Aaaccc (talk), 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Commons:Deletion requests/File:Picture of Amy Fisher.jpg[edit]

I see that you blanked your nomination from this page. Was it your intention to withdraw the nomination? If so, you must also remove the {{delete}} tag from the file and the DR from the day's log.

You comment

"I clicked "Nominate for Deletion" and didn't know this was already done. We need an easier interface."

If you see a blue link on the discussion page of any image, almost all of the time there will be a {{kept}} box which links to an earlier DR. So, simply checking for a blue-link discussion will solve your need.

Questions? Feel free to ask here, as I will watch this page for at least a week.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:45, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
