No subjectEdit

I want to upload a photo to the page of "Francisco de Paula Ribeiro" The photo was taken by the family and the original is with me. This photo was taken in São Paulo, Brasil, by one of their sons. This and other fotos are in my personal site. I am a genealogist. See the site http://www.marcosfrosa.com.br/inicialchicoribeiro.htm What do I have to do to upload this photo? Marcos Ferreira da Rosa ˜˜˜ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Marcos Ferreira da Rosa (talk • contribs) 13:53, 4 January 2015‎ (UTC)

You'll need to get the photographer (if they are alive; otherwise the photographer's heirs) to agree to publication under a free copyright license, allowing anyone to use the photo in modified or unmodified form for any purpose, including commercial purposes (from a copyright perspective at least; personality rights legislation may still prevent some uses). If they agree to that, they will need to send in a formal permission statement to our permission archive. LX (talk, contribs) 18:25, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi! I'm sorry for responding in English, but it doesn't look like anyone who speaks Uzbek is going to answer. It's a little hard to understand the automatic translation of your question. If your question is whether you can upload photos that you found on Instagram or on Fifa.com to Commons, then the answer is almost certainly "no". File:Bojan Miladinović.JPG that you uploaded four minutes after asking the question above was deleted as a copyright violation, just like the three files you had uploaded previously. If you understand any of the languages in which Commons:Project scope/Summary is available, I recommend that you read it. LX (talk, contribs) 18:38, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
he spoke in russian and asked "is it possible to upload photos from Instagram or fifa.com" this is literal translation of his. but I have one more question to you, I want to upload a picture into the wiki of my language but when I press on "upload file" it directly takes/brings me to wikimedia commons, how can I upload to my own wiki?! waiting for you answer. formerly, it was possible, but now I cant. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:UploadWizard this is the link which is set on the button "upload file" on my wiki. solve this please.

Hi! I am sorry for responding in English, but whatever language that is, it doesn't look like anyone who speaks it is going to answer. Obviously, I have no idea what you're asking (if you're even asking anything – there is no question mark), but there are several problems with your uploads so far:
  • File:IMG0009A.jpg: You've stated that the file description is in Hindi, but it's written in the Latin alphabet rather than in Devanagari. Google Translate can't make sense of it directly, but asks if I meant "मैंने इस फोटो को स्वयं लिया है", which it translates to "I took the photo itself". It's good that you created the photo yourself, but that information is already provided via the source and author fields. The description field is supposed to describe what it is we see in the photo. You've placed the file in Category:1'B'1 locomotives, but it definitely does not depict a locomotive. It looks like some kind of cave somewhere. Please give files sensible names, descriptions and categories. Files that no one has any idea what they depict are not useful to anyone. Also, please upload higher resolution versions of your photos. Even files with meaningful names, descriptions and categories aren't very useful if they're only a tiny 240×320 pixels.
  • File:IMG0027A.jpg and File:Lekhak.jpg don't have very meaningful names, descriptions or categories. Photos of low technical quality depicting people with no discernible notability are generally outside of Commons' project scope.
  • File:Daanga saa.jpg has been deleted as a copyright violation. Please don't upload copyright violations. LX (talk, contribs) 19:05, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Susanna RoxmanEdit

Hi,

I'm having some problems adding a second photo to the article "Susanna Roxman", which I wrote a few years ago. Basically, I must say that I don't quite understand why it has to be so difficult to add pictures to the Wikipedia, and so easy to add texts! I got some odd response today to the effect that this kind of file (whatever that means) cannot be uploaded. I don't see why, because, technically, it's a similar picture to the one I added earlier. It isn't possible to answer such comments directly. I have spent literally many hours trying to add the second photo. Please help. You may use this email address:

This post was your first edit here on Wikimedia Commons. It will obviously be very hard for anyone to help if you don't mention who it was that responded to what or where that discussion took place, especially if you don't provide any direct quotes. It looks like you successfully uploaded File:Susanna Roxman.Kensington Gdns.JPG after posting the question above, though. LX (talk, contribs) 19:31, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Adding a picture from an newspaper's online websiteEdit

Hi there,

I want to add a photo to a page. The photo I want to use is from a newspaper's online website. Can I add it to a wikipedia?

Here is the link to the photo http://www.vancouversun.com/business/Opinion+Renewable+energy+vital+First+Nations+remote+communities/8875596/story.html

Thanks for your help

Fabflamesfan (talk) 01:47, 18 January 2015 (UTC)Fabflamesfan

Don't upload it here (commons), unless you find a free source. The newspaper site mumbles something about "republication strictly prohibited", and fails to mention where they got the image. An even smaller version was published in December 2001. You could upload it as "fair use" on wikipedia. –Be..anyone (talk) 02:30, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Stills from music videosEdit

What would be the best type of copyright for stills from music videos? It would be best to be able to say "this is a still from the MTV music video..." I have access to original images from the music videos but I don't want to add them as just images, I want to credit them as being on television. Is that possible on Wikipedia? Johnlamint2253 (talk) 04:42, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

@Johnlamint2253: You can use Wikipedia's File Upload Wizard. In Step 3, choose "This is a copyrighted, non-free work, but I believe it is Fair Use." Then, when indicating the type of material, choose "excerpt from a copyrighted work", and then "Movie screenshot". Anon126 ( ) 17:54, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

How to update a file (specifically, a bar chart) with additional information.Edit

The archive on updating describes the case where someone wants to add a better picture of something, so the answer given there [create a new file] makes sense. That help file also says that the original editor can update, for example to improve things like crop or contrast. That doesn't apply to my file (though I am the original creator), but even if it did, the controls to do so are no longer evident.

Let me be more specific. The file I want to revise is file:BofMiltonKeynesUA-popn.png . At present, it has data up to the 2001 census. I want to upload a new version, which is exactly the same except that I've added columns to reflect the 2011 census. Please advise. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 11:44, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Hold off replying to this request for a while as I've just found Commons:Upload help/Archive/2014/03#Revising an existing file under Revise a file. Let me read that first to see if it answers my question. --John Maynard Friedman (talk) 11:51, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

MTS video format conversionEdit

I have MTS format video. What should I do with it?

  • What's the best upload format for Commons?
  • Suggestions please for a format conversion tool?

Thanks Andy Dingley (talk) 12:25, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

@Andy Dingley: Help:Converting video has all the information. WebM is the preferred format (though Ogg is also fine), and there are many conversion tools available. (My personal preference is FFmpeg.) Anon126 ( ) 17:46, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I've set up FFmpeg, converted and uploaded: File:Dancing horses, Chepstow Mari Lwyd 2015.webm
Quality's a bit clumpy though - not as good as original or the MP4 I also made. Do you know how to improve quality settings with FFmpeg? I can't make sense of the parameters. I've since tried it with Ogg File:Dancing horses, Chepstow Mari Lwyd 2015.ogv, which is much better. Andy Dingley (talk) 00:37, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
@Andy Dingley: You can use a simple "-q [0-9]" quality scale for most some output formats, for example:
ffmpeg -i input_file.avi -q 9 output_file.ogv
I didn't build my ffmpeg with WebM support, but I suspect it would work. --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 16:47, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
@Andy Dingley: Sorry, it looks like that might not actually work, according to the list of options for that codec... more explanation of how the options work together on this page. I stick to Ogg for uploads myself. --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 17:37, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
@Andy Dingley, Junkyardsparkle: According to this page, the relevant option is -crf, ranging from 4 to 63 (lower means better quality). Anon126 ( ) 18:58, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks guys, but now I'm even more confused.
The Ogg file is 26MB and the default .webm is 2.41MB. Using the -quality parameter and best, good, realtime gives sizes of 2.22, 2.41, 3.29 MB. Quality is proportionally (probably not linearly) to file size, which confused me even further. -crf does nothing. 4..63 all give the same results as the default.
I think I'll give up on .webm and just stick to Ogg. Andy Dingley (talk) 20:05, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Please check my FFmpeg options on File_talk:Wikipedia_Edit2014.ogv#FFmpeg_log, I'm desperately looking for improvements (notably 2-pass). –Be..anyone (talk) 04:21, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Wizard not allowing re-upload of imageEdit

Hello, I had an image that was deleted by a bot who believed that it was uploaded without permission (this is not accurate, but it's possible I may have labeled something incorrectly the first time).

All the three files you uploaded were deleted by User:Fastily, who is not a bot. The files were tagged by me (and I can assure you that I am not a bot) and by Secondarywaltz, who does not appear to be a bot either. You should not attempt to recreate previously deleted content yourself. If you do, you may be blocked. Instead, you may appeal the deletion at Commons:Undeletion requests.

Robin Windsor and Kristina Rihanoff Image Copyright ViolationEdit

Hello

I am working on behalf of these Artists as well as Artem Chigvintsev, I have uploaded images with their permission, all images are linked to their websites and are in the public domain unfortunately these are now all listed for possible copyright violation. How can this be resolved please as we would rather not have to go through this process everytime we upload to either Artem, Kristina or Robins Pages. Images are photoshoots by our clients and so they have sole copyright.

First of all, you may wish to read Commons:Guidance for paid editors. That will probably answer most of your questions.
You say that you work for these people. Unfortunately, it's common for people to impersonate other people in order to upload copyright violations, so for previously published and professional content, we need to take additional verification steps to ensure the integrity of this project and those who use it, especially if there is no external indication that the content is free (and I can't see any indication at either https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=800213026657705 or any of the websites mentioned that any of this content is in the public domain). Therefore, you will need to e-mail our permission archive volunteers. (Full instructions are on that page.) Also, and this is not really an issue here on Commons, but it looks like you have an undisclosed conflict of interest on English Wikipedia given your edits there. You should probably read up on their stance on that.
Now, I can see from your log that you have uploaded nine files, six of which have been deleted. Please do not recreate any deleted files yourself. Doing so may lead to your account being blocked. If you send in evidence that you have the legitimate copyright holder's approval to release this content into the public domain (or to publish it under a free license), it will be restored by an administrator. If the copyright holders are not the photographers but the subjects of the photos, you will also need to include the contract stating that the photoshoot was a work for hire or the copyright transfer agreement, whichever applies.

When you say you own the photograph, do you mean that you just own a copy of the photograph, or did you actually create it yourself? If it's the latter, just go to Special:UploadWizard and follow the instructions there. If someone else created the photo, it's easiest if they upload it themselves.

I had a mistake in setting the image license and want to change it. Please help.Edit

Hi. I am new to this site, and I wanted to upload a map image (which I had modified). The image I had used was an original svg file by another user.

But, being a newbie here, I used the Upload Wizard which asked "Is this your work?" (or something like that). And I was thinking, yes and no. Yes because it was a derivative work (I modified it), and no because it was an original file created by another user. I opted to stay safe and choose NO, because it wasn't my original work. Upon successful uploading of the file, I checked the license which attributed the author of the modified image solely to the original creator/person (Felipe Aira) I had cited during the upload process, without any attribution to me (except as the mere uploader).

In a nutshell, I would want to ask help in changing the license of the image I had modified and uploaded into something like "Derivative (modified) work by Sanglahi86, and original file by Felipe Aira".

Thank you. Sanglahi86 (talk) 12:07, 27 January 2015 (UTC)


Ok, it's fixed. I just edited the image license the way I wanted it to appear. I had no idea it could be edited.

Ich blicke bei "Panoramafreiheit" nicht recht durch, auch nicht in AT. In DE wäre die Regel, dass von öffentlich zugänglichen Orten ohne Tricks (Leiter, Drohne, etc.) aus Fotos erlaubt sind, also der Fotograf allein ansagt, was Sache ist. Falls Menschen zu sehen wären, bräuchte es evtl. Vorlage {{personality rights}} oder Einwilligung, aber das trifft hier wohl nicht zu. Der Architekt kommt ins Spiel für andere Fotos ohne Panoramafreiheit. Deine Ansage auf allen Seiten, dass der Architekt ohnehin alle Rechte hat, leuchtet mir spontan nicht ein, aber wenn's so ist, was ist dann Deine Frage? –Be..anyone (talk) 14:37, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Three masted Barqu eEngland's GloryEdit

I am interested of the current home of the England's Glory. I see she was sold by Christies? in 2007 and may reside in USA. My grandfather sailed in her a cabin boy in 1881 on her last run to New Zealand where she was wrecked at Bluff. I am compiling a history of my grandfather, Capt John Peter Bollons and would appreciate a photo of the painting to incorporate as she was such a beautiful sight, certainly in Tudgay's rendition. My email address is: advocacy2007.14@gmail.com. thank you Suzanne Paul — Preceding unsigned comment added by 103.224.129.1 (talk • contribs) 23:36, 27 January 2015‎ (UTC)

This doesn't seem to have anything to do with uploading media files to Wikimedia Commons. It sounds like you may be looking for en:Wikipedia:Reference desk and/or Category:England's Glory (ship, 1869). LX (talk, contribs) 00:05, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
