Image:X-ray by Wilhelm Röntgen of Albert von Kölliker's hand[edit]

Dear Old Moonraker, I am currently writing a not-for-profit book chapter for University College London (UCL) and would be delighted if I could use this great image of the hand x-ray. Would this be ok? Thank you, Joseph —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 18:10, 9 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Roger Fenton[edit]

with histogram adjusted and artifact removal

To give you a taste of what can be found, here are some interesting faces from Roger Fenton's Crimean War photographs. I like to set the Library of Congress previews to thumbnail format; click and scroll down when you see one you like to find out whether that has a high resolution version. Best regards, Durova 04:54, 10 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks for taking the trouble to let me know what's available—the images certainly repay examination at high resolution. Old Moonraker 10:42, 10 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Old Moonraker!

Thank you for providing images to the Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to the Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on the Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. 13:49, 10 March 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Old Moonraker!
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:


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]]

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").

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.

Shakspere signatures[edit] Hey Old Moonraker! I've created a new version of the six Shakespear signatures. How do I replace the one we have? Tom Reedy (talk) 23:07, 21 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've uploaded the file in two different formats: File:Shakespeare_signatures_labelled.TIF and File:Shakespeare_signatures_labelled.JPG, but I can't make them work on the page. Do you know what I'm doing wrong? Tom Reedy (talk) 15:42, 22 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, couldn't work it out. I tried re-uploading it: File:Shakespeare signatures labelled-2010-22-01.tif, (now for deletion) but that didn't work either.--Old Moonraker (talk) 17:44, 22 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If I e-mail you the file could you upload it? My e-mail address is on my wikipedia talk page. Tom Reedy (talk) 22:34, 22 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hollar panorama[edit]

Hey, Ol' M-:

The illustration on the Globe Theatre page needs some tweaking:

---The correct title is "Long View of London," not Southwark.

---The illustration is a only sketch for the later, engraved version.

I own a full-size reprint of the final six-sheet panorama. I suppose I could shoot a detail of the Globe (and the "Beere Baiting") to use; but though the 1647 original is obviously PD, I don't understand the law re. exact, unmodified repros of it.

Also, I'm too Luddite to change the caption on the ill. so I just made a note of it on the discussion page. Can you help?

Yours for Chuck Jones' Wagner, Jim Stinson

I meant to use the sketch, rather than the Antwerp engraving, as more immediate (and without the need to fix the name switch), but "Southwark" was a mistake. I'll look at en:Globe Theatre again. Thanks for the notification. --Old Moonraker (talk) 09:36, 19 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Here is the source and page number... p.17 ILO-OSH 2001 Any chance this graphic can be put back??? Thanks. Kurt Dundy (talk) 07:05, 14 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yep, there it is. The copyright notice is on page 6: "Copyright © International Labour Organization 2001", so I don't think we can use it. More on copyright at Commons:Licensing. Best. --Old Moonraker (talk) 19:54, 14 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
