Wrong key[edit]

When I try to upload, I get the error message "Wrong key". I have retried, as well as removed the image and started from scratch, several times. Sometimes it works, but often not. Can I do anything to have better success? --Årvasbåo (talk) 14:20, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

  • If you are having trouble with the Upload Wizard, you could try the old upload form or one of the Commons:Upload tools instead. If you continue having troubles, a post to Commons:Upload help outlining what is happening may help resolve the issue(s). ColonialGrid (talk) 14:34, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
    • It works with the old upload form - and when i reset Firefox, the problem with the upload wizard diappeared. Thanks for your input. --Årvasbåo (talk) 17:27, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
    • The problem reappeared with the upload wizard, but the old upload form is still an alternative. --Årvasbåo (talk) 14:30, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Maybe you could try clearing your browser cache? Maybe a post to Commons:Upload help may alert those with more technical knowledge to your issues. ColonialGrid (talk) 14:55, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Would I be able to upload this photo?[edit]

Hello! I was wondering if I would be allowed to upload a photograph of Louise Haigh? I live in Sheffield and I'd like to improve the articles on the new MPs as much as I can.I took the Photograph from here. Thanks in advance! Luke BassettSYC 13:14, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

  • Commons only accepts freely licenced images. That image is from a British news website that states it to be 'All right reserved', as such we must treat the image as also being all rights reserved and therefore not acceptable at Commons. Sorry, maybe you could find an image of her on a British government website that is available under an open government licence, or on Flickr under a CC licence (please note that Commons does not accept CC image with NC or ND restrictions).

How do I make an SVG of a map of the United States with 8 cities ...[edit]

How do I make an SVG of a map of the United States with 8 cities connected by lines to show an itinerary to illustrate an article? Is there a free online map making program that does this, or do I have to import a map into Inkscape and add the dots manually? --Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talk) 14:56, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Photos perdues...[edit]

Bonjour.

J'ai téléversé plusieurs photos sans bien préciser la catégorie. Exemple : la photo du mascaron de l'hôtel de Clermont, à Besançon (France) n'apparaît pas avec les autres photos de ce bâtiment. Elle est perdue je ne sais où... Je la retrouve avec mon nom mais c'est tout. D'autres photos sont par contre au bon endroit (Montbard, abbaye de Fontenay, et d'autres). Je ne vois pas comment faire. Les explications pour choisir une catégorie ne m'aident pas. Merci de m'assister dans cette procédure.

  • Could someone with better French than me please take this one? Convenience links: File:Hôtel de Clermont - Mascaron du portail.JPG, File:Mascaron du portail.JPG. Looks like two versions of the same photo at different levels of lightness, not linked as versions of the same thing, so besides the issue he is asking about there is another that will need to be explained. - Jmabel ! talk 15:39, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

Adjusting a wonky image[edit]

Hello! I just uploaded File:Battle of Ferozeshah illustration.jpg. It's a nice image, but as you can see it's tilted slightly. Would someone please adjust the image, or point me in the direction of a (preferably free) Mac application that would allow me to fix it myself? Thanks, Howicus (Look at what I found!) (talk) 22:45, 26 June 2015 (UTC)

@Howicus: The Gimp (www.gimp.org) is available for Mac, and of course free. :) I'll de-tilt it for you, tho. Revent (talk) 08:50, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Just to make it a bit easier to find (their homepage doesn't make it apparent, since it's natively a *nix program) go to http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/News/News.html and get the build there... it's precompiled, with some nice addons already plugged in. Revent (talk) 09:06, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
@Revent: Thanks for the de-tilt. I'm going to need GIMP though, it's far from the only tilted image from that book :). Howicus (Look at what I found!) (talk) 13:52, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
@Howicus: Just as a note, about editing jpegs in Gimp: when you re-export them make sure that 'use quality settings from original image' is selected, to avoid adding compression artifacts due to recompression as much as possible... even 'increasing' the quality settings will add them (and will not make the image any better, the information was already lost).

Photo of building[edit]

Can I upload a photo I took myself of an architeturally significant building built in the 1930 decade? — Preceding unsigned comment added by SartagoSternitSartagineHostes (talk • contribs) 16:02, 29 June 2015‎ (UTC)

It depends on where the building is located. If it was taken in a country with freedom of panorama for buildings, it should be OK. If not, it depends on whether or not the architect's copyright has expired. That in turn also depends on the relevant jurisdiction, and it's usually determined by when the author died and/or when the architectural work was published.

Broken image[edit]

Hello,

I discovered the following image is somehow broken

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Carlo_Dolci_-_Madonna_in_Glory_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg

it returns 503 when attempting to fetch a scaled version via the API. If I go to the scaled image URL then the message is

Error creating thumbnail: Error code: 137

what is the best way to fix this?

Thanks,

Fred.

I was able to download the file, which opens fine in both Preview and GIMP. When I open it in Photoshop I see a guideline at the level of the bottom of the painting (the tan background covers a frame in the original source, so it might be a leftover from the construction of a mask). Since it would therefore seem to contain application-specific data, possibly in a proprietary format, I’m guessing that might be what’s tripping up the thumbnail generation and so on. (There’s very little metadata AFAICT, but a CS6/Win signature is present.) I’ll try uploading a ‘clean’ version; unfortunately that means re-JPEGing the image, but the resolution is high and I’ll use the maximum quality setting, so the damage should be minimal. Thanks for reporting it. (BTW, please sign your posts by typing four tildes ~~~~ at the end.)—Odysseus1479 (talk) 00:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Image without permission[edit]

Unfortunately this image File:George Ewart Evans, Stowmarket.JPG was uploaded without copyright permission. Although it is only a copy of an public exhibition panel, it may need to be removed. Martinevans123 (talk) 17:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

It depends on whether this photo was published and when. Ruslik (talk) 19:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I can ask the subject's daughter if she knows. But he was born in 1909 and I'd estimate he was not older than 40-45 in that portrait, so I'd guess no earlier than 1954. The photographer was the artist David Gentleman, Evans' son-in-law. Martinevans123 (talk) 20:54, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Use of images from a global standpoint[edit]

Hello,

I am developing a website based for customers in the United States, the business is owned by a client in the United Kingdom. I am located in the United States.

My question is: are all images on public commons sites available for use on a commercial level regardless of where the business address is located.

Thank you so much for you time to help me understand the rules/laws so that I do not break any.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jodi Huckaby (talk • contribs)

All images on the Commons can certainly be used for commercial purposes in USA in the country of their origin. In other countries their copyright status may be different, for instance, images that are in public domain in USA and in the country of origin in some cases may not in public domain in other countries. However such situations are rare. So, if you are going to do your business only in USA any images from the Commons are ok. Ruslik (talk) 20:06, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
In theory all images on Commons can be used in the USA. In practice, the fallout over the URAA arguments have left a lot of works that are most likely in copyright in the US that are marked with PD licenses. Moreover, I think it worth noting that many works on Commons are licensed, and the GFDL or CC-BY-SA demand requirements that may not fit his needs, and that we don't have model releases, making use of most pictures of people problematic. (It's certainly something I'm watching in my own potential commercial uses.)--Prosfilaes (talk) 20:49, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Questionable license tag[edit]

On English Wikipedia I would discuss a questionable template at Wikipedia:Templates for discussion. Is there a corresponding forum on Commons? The template I have in mind is Template:PD-EEA. According to the cited legal notice, EEA content may be re-used, but it doesn’t say anything about modification. (I am not even clear that it permits re-distribution.) To my mind this is not even free use, much less public domain. —teb728 t c 00:12, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

AFAIK the only separate XfD process here is for categories; everything else goes to COM:DR. P.S.: It might be from one of my opt-in Gadgets, but I see a “Nominate for deletion” link under “Tools” in the sidebar on the template page; this should handily tag the page, notify its creator, and create the discussion subpage, all from filling in one small form.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 00:40, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. That's really easy. It even know to wrap the banner in a noinclude tag. —teb728 t c 02:54, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Regarding the publication of images depicting National Trust Properties[edit]

The taking of pictures on National Trust Property and publication of said pictures is protected by a UK bylaw (1965). Which infers that such pictures cannot be published (in any format) without the express permission of the National Trust.

See NT claimed photographic access rights via the link below:

http://www.nationaltrustimages.org.uk/photographic-access

In particular: "Images taken at NT properties may not be submitted to photo libraries, agencies or on-line providers or provided directly to image buyers."

I assume that [commons.wikipedia.org] is for all intents and purposes a "photo library" even though it is intended for free and open use.

I have searched on [commons.wikipedia.org] but have not been able to locate a statement from the National Trust that permits the publication of these images or their republication under commons license agreements. I also notice that the majority of these images have been reproduced from Flickr and geograph.org which also do not have specific permission.

I wish to reuse many of these images under the CCL and GNU Free Documentation License agreements on my own website but do not wish to break the access rights stipulated by the National Trust.

Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

I don't think Commons would have any problems accepting such photos because it falls under non-copyright restrictions. The section from the byelaws is:

Hawking 17. No unauthorised person shall on Trust Property sell or offer or expose for sale any commodity, or article or for the purpose of trade or reward take any photograph.

which to me implies that if you don't receive any payment for the photo yourself then there's no violation. A separate section forbids taking photos inside their buildings without permission. --ghouston (talk) 10:51, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Thank you

I assume this copyright issue is also covered by UK government legislation on the matter of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1988/48/section/62 which states that:

62 Representation of certain artistic works on public display.

(1)This section applies to—

(a)buildings, and

(b)sculptures, models for buildings and works of artistic craftsmanship, if permanently situated in a public place or in premises open to the public.

which to me implies that you can still take (and retain copyright of) pictures of the inside the premises as they are open to the public.

Most of the photographs of NT buildings on Commons are covered by freedom of panorama. In theory, the NT could write to Commons or the WMF and ask that other images taken by the public inside their buildings are removed (it's a debatable area of copyright, despite the quote from the copyright act above), however in the light of the fact that where they allow the general public to take photographs in their properties, they appear to neither inform, nor agree contractual conditions on the photographers (such as not posting the images with unrestricted licenses on Flickr, or uploading to Commons), they seem uninterested in enforcing possible arcane rights.
Rather than talking hypothetically, you could try writing to Tim Parker, pointing out that Wikimedia encourages our volunteers to take photographs of their properties as part of the well respected global Wiki Loves Monuments programme, and ask him to confirm this is a good thing and that the NT has no interest in challenging copyright for any Commons photographs taken for the benefit of public knowledge. :-)
Don't forget to publish the letter and any replies on Commons so it clears up any future doubts... -- (talk) 11:53, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
I wrote to the NT, of which I am a member, a couple of years ago. They were quite adamant that taking photos for personal use was fine, but that publishing any photos taken on NT property was strictly not allowed. Thus, all interior photos (of which there are many at Wikipedia) were a contravention of the terms of admittance to that property. When I pointed out there were many already here, the NT copyright office said they would "turn a blind eye to past infringements". What you are supposed to do, they told me, is to request use of an image from the NT official image library. Martinevans123 (talk) 13:21, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Typical behaviour of public administrations: creating nonsense rules contrary to their mandate, and having to turn a blind eye, as they can't really force anyone to apply them... :( I have seen the same in France. Regards, Yann (talk) 14:44, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
They also told me, however, that they were in a "long-running dispute with Wikipedia" over image use. But they would give no further details and I've never seen any public discussion, or even admission, about this. Martinevans123 (talk) 16:28, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
Good news then. Having a long history of turning a blind eye, and being on the record as saying that, makes it virtually risk free for volunteers to upload their photos. If the NT wanted to take an unpaid Wikimedia volunteer to court for damages, with this background it would be a non starter. Of course we can be nice, if the NT ask then we can have a deletion request and test the evidence in more detail. -- (talk) 23:06, 1 July 2015 (UTC)
It was a "blind eye" only for past infringements. But I have seen frequent transgressions since, all apparently unchallenged. I felt that I could not reasonably upload any and "plead ignorance", having deliberately asked them Martinevans123 (talk) 15:27, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I guess a lot of National Trust buildings are quite old and would be in the public domain. For such buildings it seems to me that the only issue for unpaid photographers is the banning of taking photographs inside a building. It's not a problem for Commons hosting the files (since Commons didn't take any photos, so hasn't broken the byelaw, and besides that is out of reach in the USA.) However it seems that in theory the National Trust could take a UK photographer to court and have them fined 20 GBP (or whatever the current amount is, if acts of parliament have changed it.) --ghouston (talk) 05:38, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
The best thing would be to ask them about images uploaded from an anon account, and suggest that either they issue public take down notices to set a precedent (it being impossible to sue a ghost) or our advice to volunteers will always be to ignore all NT restrictive statements unless written by a named lawyer, as they both misunderstand copyright and fail to comply with The Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015. -- (talk) 15:53, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure that the byelaw gives them any right to make take down requests, especially against a 3rd party that didn't take the original photo. --ghouston (talk) 23:33, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

sound problem with a video file, thought we fixed it but nope[edit]

This week, students from Wiki Learning- Tec de Monterrey uploaded a video about contributing files to Commons shown here to the right. Intitally, they (we, Im involved as an advisor) uploaded the files without the soundtrack. I told them to upload a new version of the file, with the soundtrack. Both versions appear on the page, but if you click on the main thumbnail, you get the version with no sound. If I click specifically on the new version, I get the sound. Anyone know how to fix this?Thelmadatter (talk) 22:39, 1 July 2015 (UTC)

Transcode status shows errors. It looks like Mediawiki is unable to handle the codecs used. Can you upload the file using something else than OPUS audio codec (Vorbis for example)? MKFI (talk) 06:37, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Copyright help regarding File:T-14 Concept Art.jpg[edit]

I would like the file to be deleted from Wikimedia Commons, as I believe I cannot find nor provide adequate information on the author and any copyright claims on the image. I have not declared this as my own work and have cited the author's name and website, but I still think it is my duty to submit this so there are no possible future issues with this image.

Rights expired?[edit]

I have a question about the file File:Cover of Muse by Mary Novik.jpg. It asserts that the file is in the public domain but this book released in 2013 and according to the publisher's website, is still available for purchase. I'm not sure if they were referring to the painting used in the book's cover or not, so I just wanted to ask a question about this. I know that typically book covers do not fall under public domain but I don't know if this is different for book covers that use paintings. I was going to use this in the book's article, but I'm going to upload a different file with a non-fair use template (to Wikipedia, not commons) just in case. Tokyogirl79 (talk) 07:15, 3 July 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done Right. At least more information about the painting needed. File tagged. Regards, Yann (talk) 07:18, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
  • I've also asked the author on his main Wikipedia page. I figure that it's usually just safer to upload covers as non fair use as a CYA type of deal. Tokyogirl79 (talk) 07:24, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) I find that assertion extremely unlikely: AFAICT the background image is not an old painting but a photo-composite. The copyright page (as previewed at Amazon) says “Cover images: (woman) Malgorzata Maj/Trevillion Images; (Avignon) created from a photograph by Richard Susanto/Shutterstock.com”—so even if the design itself were below the TOO (which I don’t think it is) the included imagery is still presumably copyrighted. I’d have tagged it for speedy deletion as a copyvio, but that might be a little rash … since it‘s been here a year and a half, I don’t suppose another week will hurt.—Odysseus1479 (talk) 07:37, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
