Hello, Paolostefano1412!

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.

Gracias chamo por tu comentario respecto a la fotografía de las Aguilas del Zulia vs Leones. Respondiendo a tu pregunta, he usado un software libre llamado GIMP para corregir algunos desperfectos de la foto, pero como es de notar, quizás la corrección de ruido ha sido demasiado fuerte. No tengo mucha experiencia corrigiendo desperfectos en las fotos. Es posible que el principal problema sea la cámara que no es profesional. Tengo una Canon SX30 IS, considero que la calidad de sus fotos no es lo suficientemente buenas como para subirlas a FPC. Por otro lado, este Sabado subiré al pico Humboldt y Bolivar, por consiguiente, me gustaría escuchar recomendaciones tuyas para realizar mejores trabajos fotográficos o algún material que pueda leer antes de salir. Un abrazo y gracias por darme fuerzas para seguir. --The Photographer (talk) 13:22, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Por cierto, este es un ejemplo de la camara chimba esa vale, no se como hacer. Gracias por tus consejos, los editaré un poco y los usare en Recursos Destacados --The Photographer (talk) 14:51, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Excelente trabajo tus fotografías, me gustó particularmente la de Montreal. Creo que tenemos la misma cantidad de destacadas, aunque te aseguro que las mías las hice yo y no mi camara (esto es una broma). Un abrazo Paolo y estamos pendiente, sería bueno verte por el grupo de wikimedia Venezuela.--The Photographer (talk) 14:54, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

A preview before I proceed[edit]

Hi Paolo,

I found another set of photos from the cemetery, which I have been working on. It requires yet some work due to some parallax errors. But should I proceed? What do you think?

An unrelated issue: I enjoy your presence on Commons. I think you are a very competent photographer, editor and reviewer. And very pleasant to interact with. Best wishes from a cold Denmark, where yet another December storm is approaching. --Slaunger (talk) 13:55, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Imagem da Torre Vasco da Gama[edit]

Não foram tiradas todas as categorias. Ficou a categoria mais importante "Torre Vasco da Gama". A partir do momento que tem essa categoria, também tem implicitamente todas as categorias onde essa categoria está incluída. Caso contrário a categoria "Towers" teria milhares de imagens, tal como categoria "Europa" ou mesmo "Portugal". Assim fica a categoria exacta para a foto.

Hi Paolo[edit]

Thanks for your suggestions on File:Tiny_Grass_Blue_Zizula_hylax_by_kadavoor.JPG. I do some sharpening as suggested; hope you like it. Jee -- Jkadavoor (talk) 06:20, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes; I noticed the huge damages when viewed large. Unfortunately I know little photoshop so depending picasa now. Now for the time being, I undo it and do a little sharpening in NeatImage while removing the noice. Is NeatImage also making same damages as picasa? I will try to experiment photoshop / lightroom soon. -- Jkadavoor (talk) 05:21, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Epale chamo[edit]

Hola Paolo, quería mostrarte una mejor forma de poner los enlaces, fíjate: [[:en:Wikipedia:Featured_picture_candidates|Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates]] [[:es:Wikipedia:Candidatos_a_recursos_destacados|Wikipedia:Candidatos a recursos destacados]] Es por si quieres hacerlo así en tu página de usuario. Por otro lado, Me ha llamado más la atención, desde que me hiciste aquellas recomendaciones sobre la imagen del partido de baseball, incursionar en la mejor manera de retocar las fotos. Tengo una cámara Canon SX30 IS, es una cámara reciente pero de un sensor pequeño, es una puente, uso CHDK para poder generar los RAW, esos raw los lanza con demasiado ruido y además de la distorsión del lente, no tengo manera de poder eliminar ese ruido, quería preguntarte cuál es la mejor herramienta que conoces para la eliminación de ruido. He bajado lightroom como me lo recomendaste, sin embargo, aún no me acostumbro a sus controles, tengo años usando GIMP para editar las imágenes, pero, desgraciadamente no acepta imágenes en formato RAW. Gracias amigo por estar pendiente de CRD, yo lo aprecio mucho. --The Photographer (talk) 12:42, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Algunas mejoras[edit]

Hoy me dediqué a prestarle especial atención al lanzamiento del ipad 3, digo lightroom 4, jeje. Me llamó bastante la atención su herramienta de balance de blancos con el que se logran aspectos increíbles, casi mágicos. Tengo tiempo trabajando en las imágenes que ya había subido a commons, sin embargo, son retoques a los JPG y como bien sabes esos retoques son destructivos a las fotos. El CHDK me saca fotos CR2 y con un pequeño script del mismo CHDK me saca fotos DNG que son las que abría con lightroom 3. En gimp para la eliminación de ruido usaba generalmente desenfoque gausiano selectivo, pero con resultados deplorables. Uno de los problemas que tengo es poder sacar la cámara por allí libremente para tomar fotos, es algo que me frena bastante a la hora de salir por motivos de inseguridad, es cuestión de inventar un mecanismo que me permita salir tranquilamente, he pensado en llevar una vianda o bolsa de comida, esa fue la razón principal de comprar esta cámara con un zoom de 35X para poder esconderme y tomar las fotos sin que nadie me vea. Voy a salir una de estas tardes y haré un trabajo especial para que veas el ruido, un abrazo amigo. --The Photographer (talk) 20:53, 7 March 2012 (UTC)


I want to discuss your critics. Maybe I understand it wrong, so you may give me some advice. "Unbalanced composition" means the house takes half an image, and another half is about empty? "Avoidable lamp", how can it be avoided? Next trouble, is there anything remarkable in a small town with 50 000 inhabitants? What can I search for, what notabile items may I find out? Thank you.--PereslavlFoto (talk) 12:46, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Butterflies matting[edit]

Hi Paolo Costa.

Nothing personal in my opposing vote.
I just think there are too many butterflies pictures in FPC page at the moment. (Like every year during northern hemisphere spring...)
Anyway, after reflexion, I agree with you, it is nor a very valid neither a strong argument to oppose.
So, I've withdrawn my oppose, and changed it for "neutral".
Good luck for this pic anyway !--Jebulon (talk) 16:21, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
Me back.
Thanks for answering.
As I'm thinking I'm slowly becaming a "sacred cow" myself...;))) I understand very well what you mean. I could agree.
But sometimes I support Llez shells, or Archaeodontosaurus animals, because I think they are extraordinary pictures, technically speaking, I'm not able to take.
As maybe you have seen, I try to upload many different pictures, with many different subjects, even maybe a bit too historical...
Generally speaking, when I'm not interested by a matter, I don't vote. This morning I did wrongly...
You are right, furthermore, with the behavior we must have with our new friends. I'll check next time.--Jebulon (talk) 17:21, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

The image Commons:Featured_picture_candidates#File:Catopsilia_pomona_by_kadavoor.JPG is updated by an edit by Paolo Costa to reduce the jpeg artifacts and overexposure. So I request you to update your opinion too. :)

Thank you very much for the help. Yes; small sensor cameras have so many limitations that are revealed when we use them to their limits (Carschten is very right). I will go for a DSLR sooner or later; but continue transferring the existing files from Flickr because there are not enough species photos here. And in a DSLR, I think we need separate lens for small, medium and large subjects; so the investment may heavy. :(

Thanks for your support.

Saludos paolo. Quería saber si estás en la posibilidad de acompañarme al Bolívar, estaré por allá en la segunda semana de Agosto, será un recorrido en invierno, por lo tanto, estará bastante nevado el ambiente, será un territorio excelente para explorar nuevas composiciones. Un abrazo, --The Photographer (talk) 13:10, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

Saludos, te cuento que el viaje que hice fue una de las experiencias más increíbles por no decir la más increíble que he vivido,. He tenido la oportunidad de visitar varios lugares, ninguno puede ser comparado con el Bolívar. Me llevé mi cámara como era de esperarse sin embargo, era tal la belleza del lugar que no tomé casi fotografías y me la pasaba todo el día maravillado observando (Sin contar que no realicé los ajustes necesarios antes de viajar como configuraciones de exposición para el clima nublado o muy soleado). Las noches son increíbles, el cielo se ve como si estuvieras en el espacio cuando superas los 4700 msnm. Es interesante ver como la naturaleza cambia a medida que se va ascendiendo, encima de los 4800 casi no existe vegetación ni fauna, sin embargo, se ven cosas tan raras, especies totalmente endémicas de pájaros, insectos y hasta una raza de roedores no documentada, árboles de frailejon de más de 400 años. Puedo pasar todo el día comentandote y no lograría definir ni en lo más mínimo de lo que allí se vive. Yo nunca había subido ni el ávila en mi primer viaje, nunca había ido a Mérida (La ciudad), lo más alto que estuve antes de subir fue Caracas. El viaje es duro, sin embargo, totalmente factible si se toman las previciones como llevar las medias adecuadas, chaqueta; por los implementos no te preocupes que se pueden alquilar, así uno se ahorra tener que comprar eso que solo lo usarás específicamente. He logrado encontrar una excelente alpinissta, guía y rescatista, ha guiado a infinidades de grupos, ella me ha comentado que puedo darte su telf para que la llames y te explique con más detalle 04247049274. Es un paraíso para la fotografía durante todo el camino, hasta llegar a la cumbre del Bolívar que en esta época se encuentra nevada.

Por tus destacadas fotos y por capturar una gota de la esencia de ese inmenso mar de belleza que envuelve cada paisaje Venezolano, te otorgo este humilde reconocimiento en nombre de la comunidad Wikimedia Venezuela --The Photographer (talk) 05:52, 1 July 2012 (UTC)


Hola Paolo, Saludos desde Maracaibo, la tierra del sol amada. He estado subiendo algunas fotos nuevas a commons con mi humilde camarita. Recuerdo haber tomado una en un sitio en donde nos quedamos barados, en una posición que dudo mucho que alguien mas se atreva a tomar una foto allí, no la mires a full resolución, es algo decepcionante. Por otro lado, logre que una foto mía de baja resolución fuera bien votada en commons, sencillamente les dije la verdad, me costo reunir mucho para la cámara y ademas pase todo un día a pleno sol escondido en un monte, al parecer eso sumo muchos votos, aunque no estoy muy conforme, una foto debería hablar por si misma. Por otra parte, he visto a un usuario nuevo en commons de qui de Maracaibo subiendo fotos y creo que ya ha subido mas videos que cualquiera, sin embargo, es bueno entender que la cantidad no es igual a la calidad y es algo que he venido últimamente poniendo mas cuidado, siguiendo tu ejemplo. Tengo tiempo con fotos con mucho ruido, me acorde de tu consejo acerca de lightroom y mas aun con el casi milagroso quitador de ruido de la nueva versión 4 de lightroom, sin embargo, uso linux y aqui solo tenemos a darktable. Ando en búsqueda de algo que pueda quitar el ruido de buena forma, no se si sabrás de algo. Bueno amigo Paolo, me despido, cuidate amigo. --The Photographer (talk) 01:32, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

Saludos Paolo, he estado pensando en comprar una nex 5, sin embargo, quería pedirte una recomendación, no estoy seguro qué alternativa podría ser mejor, especialmente si vemos que esa camara ya tiene tiempo. Por otro lado para que te rias un rato --The Photographer (talk) 20:41, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Photo usage[edit]

Hello :-)

I just wanted to say "Thank you very much" for your picture:

My name is Daniel, i used that picture in my little "travel around the world" puzzle game for android.

When a player sees your image (when completing a level) there is a short sentence describing the location visible on your panorama and also you are credited directly as "Photographer". Hopefully you are fine with that, if you want any changes please contact me directly. :-)

Your photographs are fantabulous. It's great to see such high-quality work on the Commons! Chevsapher (talk) 02:38, 21 September 2012 (UTC)


There is a discussion at Commons_talk:Featured_picture_candidates#Proposal:_Change_to_FP_criteria_for_new_nominations:_disallow_.22GFDL_1.2_only.22_and_.22GFDL_1.2_and_an_NC-only_license.22; please participate. -- Jkadavoor (Jee) (talk) 09:51, 11 October 2012 (UTC)


Saludos Paolo, antes que nada, felicitaciones por tu The "Photographer's Barnstar"!!!. Yo apenas voy cerca de las 10 imágenes destacadas, aunque algo me dice que con un viajesito que me eche a la Gran Sabana con los lentes adecuados será suficiente para al menos 5 destacadas. Ahorita estoy encargado del Wiki Love Monuments, un grupo de usuarios de Wikipedia que somos de Venezuela, estamos haciendo la lista de los estados que posteriormente serán plasmadas en la Wiki para iniciar el concurso en nuestro país. Si deseas participar, puedes tomar algún PDF y comenzar a agregar los monumentos construidos a la matriz en su hoja correspondiente, colándote como responsable, algunos Estados ya han sido tomados por otros amigos de la wiki. Wiki Loves Monuments es una competencia de fotografía en la cual los participantes deben captar imágenes de monumentos y subirlas a Wikimedia Commons con una licencia libre para posteriormente crear artículos para Wikipedia. La página del evento de este año que pasó es Commons:Wiki Loves Monuments 2012, estamos haciendo esta lista para el evento del año 2013, cualquier duda me escribes --The Photographer (talk) 15:49, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Hola Wilfredo! He estado corto de tiempo ahorita pero ya estoy cuadrando un viajecito para el auyantepui en diciembre. Espero poder tomar buenas fotos para donar algunas a la wikipedia. Interesante lo de los monumentos pero no creo que pueda participar, como ves he estado inactivo por meses. Te deseo suerte para el concurso hermano, saludos y un abrazo, -- 12:15, 30 November 2012 (UTC)
Pero en donde has estado todo este tiempo que ni una sola foto has subido?, No puede ser!. --The Photographer (talk) 13:13, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Under "Seeing the world"::"US states and territories" you used the flag of the country named Georgia instead of the flag of the US state named Georgia. I would just fix it, but they disallow edits to user pages. You want this file. 20:47, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

  • Indeed. Thank you, I'll fix it right away. --Paolo Costa (talk) 15:59, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

"Happy Diwali!"[edit]

While Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights", the most significant spiritual meaning behind it is "the awareness of the inner light". It is the belief that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atman. The celebration of Diwali as the "victory of good over evil” refers to the light of higher knowledge dispelling all ignorance, the ignorance that masks one's true nature, not as the body, but as the unchanging, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality. With this awakening come compassion and the awareness of the oneness of all things (higher knowledge). This brings Satcitananda (joy or peace). Just as we celebrate the birth of our physical being, Diwali is the celebration of this Inner Light. While the story behind Diwali and the manner of celebration varies from region to, the essence is the same – to rejoice in the Inner Light! And this year Diwali and All Souls' Day come together to fully defeat the Evil! "Happy Diwali!"JKadavoor Jee 06:17, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

De vuelta!![edit]

Un abrazo Paolo, tengo tiempo sin saber de ti, hace poco vi esto, quería comentarte que esa excelente imagen según tengo entendido no puede concursar debido a que deben ser fotos subidas en el período, como lo comenta en las bases del concurso La fotografía debe haber sido tomada dentro del territorio de Venezuela en cualquier momento, antes o durante el concurso. y Solo se admitirán fotografías subidas entre el 1ero de abril y el 31 de mayo de 2014.. Es una pena, pero también una invitación para hacer buenas fotos, te queda un mes entero prácticamente. Espero verte más a menudo incluso luego del concurso. Cuídate hermano --The Photographer (talk) 01:49, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

P.D. Estoy preparandome para ir a Caracas este mes próximo, estaba pensando en que podríamos encontrarnos para hacer algunas fotos juntos, qué piensas?. Feliz día --The Photographer (talk) 19:20, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
Saludos Paolo, gracias por responder. Quería decirte que podría ir en día de semana, a excepción de sábado y domingos a Caracas para hacer un recorrido fotográfico contigo. Quería saber si estarías disponible, sino, no te preocupes en otra ocasión --The Photographer (talk) 12:41, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Wilfredo se me hace imposible ahorita, estoy trabajando extraordinarias entre semana, tendré un período fuerte de varios meses y los fines de semana tengo mis programas personales. Seguramente habrá un chance en el futuro, un abrazo. --Paolo Costa (talk) 05:12, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
No te preocupes amigo, perdona la insistencia. Espero poder ver más trabajos tuyos por aquí, recuerda que eres el usuario de commons con las mejores fotos de Venezuela --The Photographer (talk) 10:35, 10 May 2014 (UTC)
Todas las fotos las he tomado y subido durante el tiempo del concurso, algunas aparecen con fechas de toma vieja porque la camara tenia la fecha equivocada y solo me di cuenta hasta después, aunque esto no es penado por el concurso. Pudieron haberse tomado en cualquier momento, lo importante es que las subas durante ese lapso. Espero que mi participación estimule la sana competencia, por cierto, La Usuaria @Beria: es mi esposa y fui yo quien le dijo para que esté pendiente del concurso, ella también se ha animado a participar. Con respecto a las fotos con tilde político, considero que estas situaciones pudieran resultar interesantes para algún grupo minoritario de turistas. Espero ver fotos tuyas pronto dentro del concurso. Un abrazo. --The Photographer (talk) 04:25, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Saludos Paolo. Felicidades por tus fotos. Espero poder verte más a menudo por aquí. Quería comentarte que en Junio planificaré un viaje para Amazonas. Yo se que andas ocupado según me comentaste, sin embargo, no está de más avisarte. Un abrazo --The Photographer (talk) 01:48, 19 May 2014 (UTC)


And when you fully back to Commons/FPCs? I'm eager to see your new macros! Jee 03:52, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi! I don't think I'll be posting on FPCs at least for now, I'm a little busy. But you can check out some new pictures I uploaded for the Wikitravel Venezuela contest:, the first ones on this page are all mine. Have a nice day Jee, best regards. --Paolo Costa (talk) 06:14, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Wow! That is a great news. This is wonderful. Jee 16:49, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Paulo - My name is James Durston, I am a travel editor at CNN in Hong Kong. I am running an article online soon and wanted to let you know that I will be using your picture of Mt Roraima in Brazil, if that's okay with you. I will of course credit you as requested and send you the link to the article once it is live. Many thanks - you can find me on twitter if you have any queries.

That's ok Mr. Durston, my pictures can be published as long as the license terms are respected. It will be good if you to notify me once the article is released and send me a link to it. Hope your article comes out great. Have a nice day. --Paolo Costa (talk) 14:19, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Thank you Paolo - here is the link to the article:
If you need any other license conditions implemented just let me know. James

New level {{User PH-4}}[edit]

Hi ; new level 4 for you ?--Medium69 You wanted talk to me? 00:12, 12 December 2014 (UTC)


Sin noticias[edit]

Saludos Paolo.

Hace algún tiempo que no se nada de ti, y esta situación no se si tenga que ver conmigo o lo sucedido en el Concurso de Wikimedia Viajes Venezuela. Yo quiero expresar mi rechazo a la organización de este evento, en la manera de como fueron seleccionadas las fotos, cosa que reclamé y por ende fuí bloqueado en Wikipedia en Español. Del mismo modo, yo quería pedirte disculpas si en algún momento, en cualquier situación, pude haber hecho algo que ocasionó tu partida de Wikimedia Commons. Yo sinceramente estoy también muy desilucionado con la actuación de Wikimedia Venezuela respecto a este concurso. Espero tener noticias pronto --The_Photographer (talk) 12:16, 13 April 2015 (UTC)


Ciao Paolo, sono incappato per caso nelle tue splendide foto, e dalla tua pagina utente ho notato che sei anche un viaggiatore. Che te ne pare di collaborare a tempo perso con Wikivoyage? Sicuramente avrai modo di fornire indicazioni e informazioni utili. Fammi sapere, --Andyrom75 (talk) 09:22, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
