Question about an uploaded image

Hi Walter, I'm quite ignorant about copyright issues here, and wonder if you can point me in the right direction for explanations of policy. This image was recently uploaded and has been used in the English wikipedia. In appears to be a photo of a painting; the person shown was born in 1802, so copyright would seem to have expired. What are the requirements here for verifying that copyright has expired, listing the artist (if known), etc.? Thanks in advance for your help. Nadiatalent (talk) 13:52, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Nadia; For images of art, two copyrights exist, in principle: (1) For the artwork itself. (2) For the photograph. For paintings, the photograph (without the frame) is unusually ineligible for copyright. That is because in Bridgeman Art Library v. Corel Corp. (1999), the New York District Court held that "a photograph which is no more than a copy of a work of another as exact as science and technology permits lacks originality. That is not to say that such a feat is trivial, simply not original".
For File:Agustin Montilla.jpeg, the copyright tags should be {{PD-Art}} and {{PD-old-100}}, if the painter died prior to 1912. {{PD-Art}} may be omitted if the uploader took the photograph. This image should be tagged {{No source since}} with the explanation that the name and date of death of the painter must be given so that the PD-old-100 status can be verified.
It is a pleasure to hear from you. Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 18:15, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Moehringia lateriflora

Hello Walter, you should try Macro Focus stacking. For Moehringia lateriflora with f/11 it you need 3 photos ... --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:45, 11 September 2012 (UTC)

I've done some focus stacking with handheld photos. They invariably require some touchup. I use Helicon Focus. I don't yet own a tripod. Can you send me E-mail with some advice? --Walter Siegmund (talk) 16:04, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Your problem can be solved in a single word: Monopod! Between 20 and 50 €, no need to spend more the most expensive are not the most practical. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 05:42, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

{{Category redirect}}

Hello my friend,
Could you copy the content of {{Category redirect/sandbox}} into {{Category redirect}}?
Here is what I did:

Step 1 and 4 are really vital.
Cheers Liné1 (talk) 12:51, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Done.[1] Thanks for making these corrections. --Walter Siegmund (talk) 15:43, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
Thanks to you my friend. Cheers Liné1 (talk) 15:51, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

Again ;-)

Hello my friend,

  1. Could you copy the content of {{Liné1SandBoxTemplate2}} in {{Category redirect/en}} ?
    I added a parameter to allow to explain the redirect (I like justifications ;-))
  2. Could you copy the content of {{Taxonavigation/sandbox}} in {{Taxonavigation}} ?
    I added a parameter nocat to allow desactivation of automatic categories

Cheers Liné1 (talk) 08:04, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi Liné1;
  1. I made the change in {{Category redirect/en}}. I see that you were able to change the many similar templates, e.g., {{Category redirect/fr}}.
  2. I changed {{Taxonavigation}}.
Thank you for doing this work.
Best wishes, Walter Siegmund (talk) 15:10, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
Looks like a great job. I suggest to test with HotCat and cat-a-lot and till RussBot have done some transfers after the cooldown period before making promotion for it. --Foroa (talk) 15:57, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
