Hello, Schwede66!

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.

Twelve Local Heroes[edit]

Hi Schwede66, the names of the sculptors of the statues in Category:Twelve Local Heroes are missing. In addition, as these sculptures are still copyrighted, you should add FOP-cat or -template at upload. --Túrelio (talk) 08:19, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Natürlich, aber warum hast du dann auf meiner Disku eine Notiz hinterlassen ;-). --Túrelio (talk) 08:24, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Ok, the name of the sculptor is Mark Whyte. No trouble adding this detail to the uploads. I sense, however, that there's a bit more to this. In particular, I don't know what that templates do and where they go, and whether there are any copyright or intellectual property issues. Can I suggest that you edit the File:Twelve Local Heroes display.jpg for me, so that I can see what needs doing? What else do I need to know?
And I left a note on your talk page as I didn't assume that you'd immediately watchlist me. Schwede66 08:30, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I had already added FOP-cat to those images already uploaded. But it would be easier if you add Category:FOP to the description text at future uploads, as I assume that you copy-paste most of the description at upload. --Túrelio (talk) 08:32, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I see. Easy enough. But where do I record the name of the sculptor? Schwede66 08:48, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
There is no fixed policy for that ;-). You could add it to the description; only take care that it is clear who is the depicted and who is the sculptor. Or you could add it to the author entry, such as xxx (sculpture) / Schwede66 (photo), or you could even add it to the source entry, such as {{own}} from a sculpture by xxx. To be sure, one way of attribution is enough. --Túrelio (talk) 09:19, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

┌────────────────┘
Ok, that's sorted. Thanks for all your help! Maybe you could help with something else now. I've found those photos on Flickr and have asked the photographer to change the licence for it to be suitable for Wikipedia / Commons. This entry shows the conversation. He's now asking a question that I don't know the answer to. Can you advise, please? You can comment here (if you don't have a Flickr account) and I'll pass it on. Thanks for your help! Schwede66 17:44, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Die Lizenz auf Flickr ist jetzt kompatibel. Hast du das Bild schon hochgeladen? --Túrelio (talk) 07:23, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Es ist das hier File:Twelve Local Heroes display.jpg, oder? Dann wäre ja alles o.k. Du kannst dem Flickr-User jetzt sagen, dass er das Bild auf Flickr wieder auf die ursprüngliche Lizenz zurücksetzen kann, wenn er möchte. Unser Flickr-bot hat die zum Upload-Zeitpunkt gültige Lizenz geprüft und registriert. --Túrelio (talk) 07:25, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Yep, photos are all sorted. But I was ambiguous about Bob's question. Here's what he's asking: "I have changed the licence settings for all of these images to 'Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons' as you suggested. I guess I might as well do this for all of my photos. What are the main differences between the two options you suggested? Is one better than the other?" I've been using the photos with the Twelve Local Heroes article. Schwede66 17:43, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:

  • Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
  • State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
  • Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
  • Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.

If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

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.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk.

Thank you.

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.

Woolpress[edit]

Hi, next time you are at Okains Bay can you get another good shot of the press but this time show the mechanism that is used to compress the wool? The current one looks authentically messy but is just a couple of boxes! Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 23:54, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

Ok. I shall try and remember that. So far, I've been to Okains Bay once in my life, so the frequency of visits isn't that great. Schwede66 07:10, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

My photos from flickr[edit]

Hi, After you pointed out on flickr that you had uploaded some of my photos here I've uploaded higher resolution ones here as flickr won't display full resolution since my account expired there. So far I've found the Okau Tunnel one (obviously) and now I found the Moki Tunnel ones and also added another one here: File:Moki Tunnel on SH43.jpg but maybe I missed some others I could provide better resolution. Also, if you could geocode them that would be helpful :-) Karora 09:35, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Also, feel free to e-mail me: andrew -at- mcmillan, net, nz if I missed stuff. Karora 09:47, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
Great stuff. What happened is that I came across the group 'Creative Common New Zealand', went through the 750 or so photos and uploaded everything that might be useful for Wikimedia Commons (and was suitably licensed). I can't say whether I uploaded other photos of yours; there were heaps that were useful. Schwede66 18:58, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
I found another 19, mostly from my Taranaki visit last year, but some around Porirua where I live (I suppose I should upload more local images :-) - sometimes I forget about uploading to Commons, but perhaps I should just upload here in the first place, given how flickr don't make the full resolution available, and only show people the last couple of hundred of the several thousand I uploaded there. Anyway I'll try and upload better versions of the ones you found. Karora 07:07, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Video conversion[edit]

I could help you on this matter. It would be kind if you uploaded the two? original source files created by the camera somewhere else. --McZusatz (talk) 21:42, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

I have replied on your talk page. Schwede66 22:00, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Changing Help pages[edit]

You proposed to add some changes to the Video-Help pages of commons to be more user friendly. I think the first aspect was to add a note about the Video editor of YouTube. I could not find a place to put this by now (I don't think there is anything about Video editing (How to) on commons). Maybe a new section in Commons:Video would be good. --McZusatz (talk) 11:24, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Alternatively a new section could be placed in Help:Converting_video#Editing_tasks? --McZusatz (talk) 11:43, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
Yes, possibly prior to all the OGV manipulations. Schwede66 18:27, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Feel free to change anything. --McZusatz (talk) 16:28, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Welcome, Dear Filemover![edit]

Commons File mover.svg

Hi Schwede66, you're now a filemover. When moving files please respect the following advice:

  • Use the CommonsDelinker link in the {{rename}} template to order a bot to replace all ocurrences of the old title with the new one. Or, if there was no rename-request, please use the Move & Replace-tab.
  • Please do not tag redirects as {{speedy}}. Other projects, including those using InstantCommons, might be using the file even though they don't show up in the global usage. Deleting the redirects would break their file references.
  • Please know and follow the file rename guidelines.

Uploading images from the National Library of New Zealand[edit]

Hello. Do you remember, how have you got the hi-res version of File:Brigadier Kippenberger and Captain McPhail examining a captured gun.jpg? Ain92 (talk) 14:17, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

File:Whatarangi Station.jpg image[edit]

Hi, I've just been fiddling with the description etc. The link back to Tapuhi seems to have rotted off. I put the question mark behind your date because NatLib says c. 1850 and the artist was born 1833 (I'm no artist and I may have done as well at age 12 but . . .). Fascinated that you have sufficient cheek to upload one of these so sacred images to Commons(!) If you don't like anything I've done there please let me know. Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 04:03, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. That's not cheeky of me; I'm simply playing by the rules :) I take it you've seen the link in the talk item above? Schwede66 04:57, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the info above. I tried it but was puzzled by the result which seemed to be no improvement but I do use a Mac. Anyway please would you tell me if you agree with me that these images are out of copyright: Cobar, Duchess and Skelleys and so will be available under the PD-NZ licence. If so I will try harder with your recommendation. Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 13:39, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Cobar and Skelleys are definitely ok, but I'm unsure about Duchess. It's ok as far as PD-New Zealand is concerned, but I once ran into trouble because a file did not meet the requirements of US copyright, and given that Commons servers are hosted in Florida, US copyright also applies. I haven't been able to track down that discussion, and neither can I find the relevant US rules. So in short, you are fine from a New Zealand perspective, but you may not meet US requirements. So you can go ahead free of trouble from our library friends, and if we find out what the US requirements are, we'll add that to our instructions for further reference. I'd be interested to know how far you get with the instructions before you get stuck. It may well be that things are different for you because you are on a Mac, or it could be that they have made subtle changes to their website. Either way, we should update the instructions to suit, and I'd appreciate your help (don't regard the instructions as being owned by me; edit them as you see fit).

I've just updated your instructions as requested but I don't know how to achieve a separation between item 9 (PC finish) and item 10 (Mac) if you see what I mean. Your instructions worked perfectly unless, like me, one has difficulty getting one's limited IQ into gear. I don't see why I thought I'd found a problem but I certainly hadn't followed the perfectly clear instructions. You know how it is, when all else fails . . . again. I've uploaded the Duchess image File:Duchess ferry beside HMS New Zealand.jpg which I now see was against instructions. Should I arrange a speedy delete? I think around 1910 their captains got drunk and drove angrily into each other (or just "refused to give way") which is why Cobar's appearance suddenly changed. I think they had rival employers. I must try to find out more. Thanks for your help. Eddaido (talk) 10:06, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
There is a good collection of old photos from The Evening Post and here is an example. Is there any way I can legitimately upload these Evening Post images to Commons? Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 22:24, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

Hm, I wouldn't go there. The Evening Post existed until 2002, was continued as the Dominion Post and belongs to Fairfax. As such, I'm guessing that the copyright sits with Fairfax, and I wouldn't take them on. I don't know whether you are placed in Wellington, but if you are, maybe have a chat with the Dom Post editor. I once nearly talked The Press into making their historic photos public domain; it's worth a try. Schwede66 23:23, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

The time lapse is just because I've been mulling over what you say. I suspect in this case your guess isn't quite right. Shouldn't there be somewhere in the New Zealand project where these things could be reported to have been ascertained and the knowledge shared? No, not volunteering, just wondering if it has already been done. Cheers, Eddaido (talk) 10:27, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
I've often wondered why there isn't an equivalent to Wikiproject New Zealand on Commons. It certainly would make sense to have it. Category talk:New Zealand is the closest that we've got; two of us seem to have it on our watchlists. Schwede66 18:51, 26 April 2014 (UTC)
Brooding about the various restrictions I came on an Evening Post photo that has been uploaded using a PD-NZ template and the only excuse I could find was that the photographer was unidentified yet presumably an employee of the Evening Post just doing his job. Here's the image File:Selwyn Toogood at the opening of the Self Help store, Lambton Quay, Wellington, 1956.jpg. Then, and this made me laugh out loud, I tripped over another which had an uploader with a familiar name, File:Cecil Wood, Rt Rev H St Barbe Holland and Will Appleton.jpg. So how is this image different from example? I expect there is an explanation but I'd love to know what it is, please tell me. Regards, Eddaido (talk) 22:11, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

File:Ford Motor Company building Wellington.jpg[edit]

Hi, we need to talk about the use of this pic on the Ford Motor Co page. Is this the right place to do that? Cheers, Eddaido (talk) 23:56, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

If you want to discuss the use of the photo on the Ford Motor Co page, it would be best to start a discussion on the related talk page on Wikipedia. If you want to discuss the image itself, it would be best to do so on the related talk page on Commons. I have now watchlisted both talk pages, so go ahead wherever that is most appropriate.
