There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

Date[edit]

Please do make a difference between a date of taken and date of publication of a photo. The field "date" in {{Information}} template means primarily the date of taken. The entry "published on October 12, 1888" cannot be replaced by "1888-10-12", but may be by "published on {{Date|1888|10|12}}". --ŠJů (talk) 23:47, 6 July 2009 (UTC) (Asi jsem ti to raději měl napsat česky, než abych se pokoušel o angličtinu, ale snad tomu lze rozumět.)

Thank you & diky - o te sablone jsem nevedel, a budu ji pouzivat. Zmenu formatu jsem delal proto, aby se datum zobrazovalo v prislusnem jazyce, ale je pravda, ze to muze byt matouci (fotka ci obraz mohly byt vytvoreny daleko driv). Diky, --Sapfan (talk) 18:49, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Martin H. (talk) 23:56, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

    • Hi Martin H., thank you for your comment and for a careful inspection of images. I am the uploader of the picture. The signature inside is of Mr. Jan Vilím who lived 1856 - 1923 according to National Library of Prague, therefore if he is the author then the picture is surely in public domain. However, I am not sure if he really took the picture - most likely, he just prepared it for printing. There are many pictures in Czech magazines of the late 19th century with this signature, but attributed to different authors (e.g., see File:Jan Antos 1899 Mulac.jpg or File:Jan Koula 1895 Langhans.png) or published anonymously. We can include him as an author but this is something what even the original magazine editors did not do. Tell me what to do - there is always an element of risk with anonymous works younger than 140 years but I believe, together with German Wikipedia, that for works older than 100 years (in this case, 110 years) it should be acceptable.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Sapfan!

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.

Watermarks[edit]

Hi Sapfan, please understand that there are serious reasons not to upload watermarked images. -- Ies (talk) 17:01, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Hi Ies, thank you for letting me know about this issue. The watermark in the pictures comes directly from the camera and shows the day (of month) and time of taking the picture. There is no copyright in them (date + time is just too trivial to be protected). I made a mistake as a digital photography newbie in 2003 to switch it on - and now most of my pictures from this period are damaged in this way. Thanks for pointing me to the site with instructions on how to remove it, I will try it on my next pictures. But anyway, most of such pictures are historic and non-repeatable (many depicted railways have been dismantled or are unpassable by now, and pl.wiki articles dedicated to them are often without illustrations), so I think they can provide value to visitors even if they are far from "quality images". What do you think? --Sapfan (talk) 17:23, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Images from ANNO[edit]

Hello Sapfan, for uploading new images from ANNO I recommand to store the original size of the page of the newspaper. You find the symbol "ORIG" in the top-right corner. So you get a better quality and a higher resolutions of the images. See my new uploadings for Leopold and Sigmund Natzler. Best wishes, Walter Anton (talk) 02:34, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Walter, thanks for the tip - the updated pictures look much better! Btw, how did you remove the redundant objects from the background? What software did you use for it? (I used brightness/contrast and eraser in GIMP but your result is much better - how did you do it?) Best regards, --Sapfan (talk) 18:24, 4 February 2013 (UTC)
Hello Sapfan, for black and white prints and drawings, e.g. from historical journals, it is often sufficient to copy with IrfanView pure white spots on the dirty sections. Sometimes I also use the eraser of Windows Paint for simple work. In special cases, such as the settings for brightness and contrast, I use my old version of Adobe Photoshop 6.0. Best regards, Walter Anton (talk) 22:16, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

File:Opalenica 20001014.jpg[edit]

Hi! I've found the following picture: File:Opalenica 20001014.jpg. I'd like to ask you if you know the number of the locomotive shown on this picutre? Bests regards. Pawel Niemczuk (talk) 12:30, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Pawel, I am sorry I do not know it - I never put it down, and the picture is unfortunately with a very low resolution. Przykro mi. --Sapfan (talk) 17:18, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
