Photo usage[edit]


I'm about to publish a book about the Estrela Mountain Dog, a Portuguese canine breed, and would like to include the following of your photos:

I'm including photo credits in subtitles, so if you don't mind my using this picture, I'll be glad to credit it to you - but would need to know in which name. So please can you reply to my address Thank you kindly.

Best regards. Manuela Paraíso

Identification suggestion[edit]

Hey, Arp... not sure if you'd notice without a pointer: User_talk:Arp/ID-requests_Tst-1. It looks like the discussion has quietened down over the past few months, hopefully it won't be abandoned entirely. I've created a test page to try to transclude: File_talk:Orchard_Oriole_(immature_male).jpg/Identification, but I didn't want to edit your proposal page itself. What do you think?

Hi Arp, this discussion popup again in a discussion on my talk page. So I'm ping you again to know the current status of your attempt. Jee 17:47, 11 January 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Licensing Image[edit]


I hope that you're well? I'm currently working for Chump Production, a UK television production company. We're currently working on a brand new TV show, and we would really like to use this image that I believe is yours -

I would love to be able to talk to you more about this, and you can contact me on

We would be able to credit and pay you for your work, but I really do need to know ASAP if we can use it or not.

Thanks again, Adrian —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 14:56, 19 October 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Permission please...[edit]

Hi. I'd like to use your picture from the Wikipedia entry for the Harlequin Ladybird in one of my talks about alien species. Thank you for allowing this, but who should I name in the credits at the end of my show? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Benaldiss (talk • contribs) 13:11, 4 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Benaldiss. As stated here you don´t need to give me credit, but if you wish to do so anyway you could either use Arp of my full name Arp Kruithof. Cheers, Arp —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 13:30, 4 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]


Hi renaming files needs to be done appropriately. Changing a name if you identify a species does not obviate a more generic classification, and it is not an "obvious" error. Feel welcome to change the information. Alternatively have a conversation with uploader about the files that they uploaded and reach a consensus on the file renaming.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:48, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Drewth, answering from phone, not logging in...
I'm afraid I don't understand. If the image is showing a different species than the filename suggests, it would seem to me that the filename is 'obviously' wrong and it should be renamed. With that I make a point of using any naming scheme the original filename seems to follow and just substitute the correct species name in that. If the original uploader wants a different name, I suggest a new request be issued. I've never yet experienced a case where this happened, so it seems a total waste of time to go and discuss this beforehand on every misidentification. Time I don't have, and certainly have no intention wasting on bogus procedure. The name is wrong, I request to correct it. Done. Period. Wiki wiki 'member? Also I do make a point of reclassifying, changing descriptions and categories. If you think I went wrong with that somewhere, please provide a link and explain why.

Dear Sir, I am coordinating the publication of a new textbook of zoology (in Italian) and I wonder whether it is possible to use your picture published in In the case, you will be credited for it. Best regards and thank you for your attention. Loriano Ballarin
