WikiProject Everyday Life aims to gather photos and video clips of everyday life all over the world (and broader :) ).So finally you can travel all around the world free of charge.

And beside this project Wikimedia wiki's will have more images covering all cities of the world.

Everyday life categories[edit]



Technical recommendations[edit]

  • Usually, you will make a lot of photos and clips per day of photographing everyday life in your place (20-30 is a lot if photos have a good resolution). Put them in some directory and rename them into something sensible: Instead of having names like "DSC004321.jpg", it is much better to have them named as like "Empire_State_Building_from_West_at_night_1_(2008-04-20).jpg".
  • Generate the file with names of the images. On GNU/Linux it may be done by typing: find upload/ -type f > images.txt.
    • File "images.txt" may look like:

  • Now, we need some descriptions of images:
    • We need an image to be double licensed (GFDL and CC-BY-SA). So, it will be "hard coded" into the script. If you want to change that, you may do that from the script.
    • Date the picture between parentheses, so program will be able to date the image, too. Note that the format is YYYY-MM-DD.
    • After the name of the file, you may add additional categories after semi colon (;). Comma (,) is a separator for categories. Note that some basic categories, like date and "Everyday life in <your town>" will be added automatically. The file should look something like:

When you finish with marking your photos (or other media), you may start the program gen_upload.py by typing: ./gen_upload.py "<name of the author of the photo>" "<images.txt file>" "<place name>".
