Hello, Kathleen5454!

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.

Your uploads[edit]

Hi, there's some of these taggings that look bad to me, and don't really need deletion. I've caught a few, but by no means all of them. You can refer folks to Ticket:2011030410000804 if they have OTRS access and need to look into this, though I think the copyright holder has changed the licenses on Flickr to help, so the OTRS ticket may not strictly be necessary. Courcelles (talk) 03:01, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Also, when you specify a source, life is easier on everyone if you link to the specific image page on Flickr, and not a gallery or set page. Thanks. Courcelles (talk) 03:02, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Hey, the taggings are not bad, their role is to draw the attention to the problem so it can hopefully get fixed without deletion. Those taggings have perfectly played their role and reached this objective, because the flickr account owner is changing the licenses as we speak. -- Asclepias (talk) 03:34, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
No, they were valid taggings at the time, but I don't find tag-bombing someone to be a best practice, either. You also applied a lot more tags than you gave Kathleen notification of here (which would have made my life easier, I'm still not sure I've gotten all of them.) I've also found two that are still on Flickr with non-commercial non-derivative licenses, File:PhotoShopCarnival.jpg and File:ProgressiveBloggersBBQ.jpg, and would need to be nominated for deletion if that is not changed.

My uploaded images[edit]

Hi Asclepias: I'm not sure why you've tagged my many (60 or so) uploaded Wikimedia images for deletion. They all have a Creative Commons license as required and it is listed as such on the photographer's Flickr account (which has his personal name and company name on the account -- the profile page). What else do you require? --Kathleen5454 (talk) 01:49, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi Kathleen5454, I did not tag them directly for deletion, because I guessed that you might perhaps know the photographer and, if so, you might try and convince him to change the licenses. I placed a "no permission" tag, which leaves you a delay to fix the problem if possible. As I explained in my first message in another section above, the problem is that you are not using the licenses attributed to those images by the flickr account. Let us take for an example the image File:Huskiesatrest.jpg. As you can see if you click on the license information on the flickr page, the licence under which this image is offered is the license "Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)". But, per Commons internal policy, it is not possible to use on Commons images that have licenses with the NC restriction or with the ND restriction (you can see Commons:Licensing for the details). When you uploaded this image to Commons, you stripped it of its original license, and instead you presented it as if it were offered under the license "Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0)". In this case, if such a substitution of licenses is not authorized by the author, it constitutes a violation of his copyright. The possible resolutions of this situation is to either delete the images from Commons, or to have the photographer himself explicitely agree to change the licenses. If you can contact him, you can ask him to change the licenses attributed to the images directly at the flickr account (to a license without the NC and ND restrictions) or to send a free licensing declaration by email to Commons through OTRS. If he does change the licenses on flickr, then make sure you indicate that new license and version on the description page on Commons and place the Template:Flickrreview, so that the changes will be verified, thus ensuring that the images will stay. I already did that for a few of your uploads that were not problematic. You can see for example File:WoodpeckerHoles.jpg, which was already offered on flickr under the license "Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 Generic (CC BY-SA 2.0)" (and since then has apparently changed to the license "Attribution 2.0 Generic (CC BY 2.0)" on flickr). I hope everything is clear and I hope we will be able to keep all those fine photos. -- Asclepias (talk) 03:24, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, Asclepias: I did have the photographer send an email as requested (re: permissions), and I did have him change the permissions from his Flickr account. I'm unclear still as to how to get FlickreviewR to review the 60+ images again. Please advise? (Your note on that regard was not quite clear to a newbie like myself). And thanks for your patience in this. Still learning.
--Kathleen5454 (talk) 03:32, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
From what I can see, another user has already done it for the current images. But, to answer your question, here is how a flickr review works. To request a review of an image that was uploaded from flickr, you only need to add the template {{Flickrreview}} to the image description page. This template will normally trigger a verification bot who will look at the source page on flickr and it will leave a validation message on the page here if the licenses match, or it will leave an error message if the licenses don't match. For example, if you look at the history of File:WoodpeckerHoles.jpg, you see this modification, where I added the template and then, in the next modification in the history, you see that the bot transformed it into a validation message. -- Asclepias (talk) 04:05, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

I had a quick last look for tonight at a sample of the images, to see how things looked after the license changes on flickr and after the passage of the review bot. Most images look ok and validated now. The bot seems to still have a problem with the recognition of some image sizes, for example with those that were posted on flickr on their side but were rotated differently on Commons. However, this is minor and nothing to worry about. Tomorrow, I'll try to get someone who has the right tools to look into that and correct it (if someone has not already done it during the night). All should be well. -- Asclepias (talk) 09:02, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Got it. Thanks for the detailed explanation. That helps. re: the images that had to be rotated on the Commons. I'm not sure how or why that happened. The images were ok on my system and ok on Flickr, but rotated in the uploading to Wikimedia. The only difference from those (few) images and other images I uploaded (which did not rotate in the uploading) was that I used Chrome and not IE (could that be the issue?). In any case, happy to have someone more experienced take care of that issue and hopefully that rotation issue won't happen in future. May go back to IE for uploading. Thanks. --Kathleen5454 (talk) 13:57, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Just upload using whatever tool you prefer. Eventual rotation if needed or other technical adjustments are relatively trivial. The bot is only having some trouble because, at the source on flickr, the "original size" version of some images is oriented on the side to start with. And the bot apparently doesn't see when a 2x1 image is the same as a 1x2 image. But don't let that trouble you. In cases where the bot cannot complete a review, a human reviewer will do it. The only major point really is the conformity with the licenses. Now that you master that part, everything should be fine.
A few details and suggestions:
The photo of the Elvis doorway was a special case, because it also involves the copyright of the person who created the image painted on the door. So, Commons could not keep that one ([1]).
On some pages, I added a mention of the original title that the photographer had given to his photo. This is because the CC licenses require that the original title be mentioned by the reusers when the work is reproduced. So, when an original title is identifiable and when the file name on Commons is different from it, it is good to mention the title in the description page.
If you want, you can have a look at your uploads ([2]) and see if everything is as you like and as it should. For example, the categorization bot has added categories to some images, but that is approximate. You can of course change and refine the categorization as needed.

Your Flickr uploads[edit]

Hello Kathleen5454!

Thanks a lot for your contributions! Thank you for transferring images from Flickr to Commons! Two hints ahead:

  • Always upload the highest resolution of a photograph that is available on flickr
  • You can use this tool for your flickr uploads. It makes the hole procedure much easier and faster for you!

Thank you for your support! Greetings, High Contrast (talk) 00:18, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
