User talk:IFCAR

Return to "IFCAR" page.

Hi!Edit

OK, didn't occur to me you could make it all capitals, Wiki is case-sensitive, so User:Ifcar is not the same as User:IFCAR (except for the first letter, that gets capitalized by default).

I couldn't resist browsing through the pics you've uploaded - some really good photos here, and I guess quite a few were badly needed!

To see all your pictures, click "gallery" when on your user or talk page. As concerns categorizing, you just need to add [[Category:Sumfink]] to the description - it won't appear in the body, but rather add the description to the light gray box at the bottom of the image page and the image will be added to the category! Browse the categories by using the search box - for example, if the image is of the Kia Sportage, type in "Kia Sportage" - you'll get some Kia Sportage images, click on one of them and you'll see they are categorized as "Kia vehicles". So, add the [[Category:Kia vehicles]] to your image description! (remember about case sensitivity)

As concerns adding images, you can go to WP, register there too and browse articles on the vehicles you made photos of. If you find one doesn't have a picture, has a non-free picture (like manufacturer's photo) or has a bad picture, or that your picture could be a good addition to the article, e.g. presents a different generation/body style/important version of the car, or perhaps the car from a different angle (like rear when there is already front pictured), add the pic! You need to use the following WikiLink:

[[Image:ImageNameFromTheCommons.jpg|250px|thumb|Caption]]

Where:

  • 250px sets the width of the pic for 250px, a generally agreed-upon standard for WP articles
  • thumb makes the photo displayed in a nice light gray box with the caption beneath - DO NOT use the thumb parameter if you insert an image into an infobox or table
  • Caption should be a good description of the photo, like "2002 Chrysler 300M" or "Third-generation Ford Explorer"

Remember to click "Show preview" before you save and make sure everything's OK.

I hope this helps! Do let me know how's it going and whether you need any other hints!

Have fun and thanks for contributing to WP!

Bravada 22:31, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

PS. Please check if there's a more specific category within the category you choose - e.g. instead of "Mercedes-Benz S-Class" it would be more appopriate to directly add the two you just uploaded to "Mercedes-Benz W126".

CategoriesEdit

wouldnt you mind looking for the right category in wich your images could go in? by being in a category your images are more probable to be found and used. have a look [here] and you will surely find the right one in each case... thankyou LadyofHats 22:36, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

A warm thanks from EuropeEdit

Hello IFCAR! Thank you so very much for posting all these pictures! I wrote a couple of dozen entrys for the German WP in the last weeks, mainly concerning US cars, and your photographs have been very helpful, indeed, to illustrate them. --- Bought myself a digital camera the other week, but I found that owners and passers-by here get totally nervous and aggressive when you go ahead photographing their car. --- Keep on your good work! Sincerely, Michael

--328cia 00:38, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Thanks again for your kind words. Just returned from an afternoon prowl and got some new pics, including a rare Lancia Kappa Wagon. --- I´ll use a lot more of your pictures once I´ll have completed the respective articles. The pages on US cars on our Wikipedia are mostly in terrible condition or do not exist at all. If you happen to see third-gen Toronados/Eldorados/Rivieras (1979/85), please don´t hesitate to shoot them...Also, some pics of a 2005/2006 Pontiac GTO (with "nostrils") would be fine...And I sincerely wished someone in Australia or New Zealand would shoot all these interesting Commodores and Falcons. They seem to have other priorities in the Outback, however.

A pleasant Sunday to you!

--328cia 16:07, 4 November 2006 (UTC)


Yeah, I´ve seen the Riviera convertible pics; very nice to have that rare car covered. I will do a German Riv article as soon as the book I´ve ordered (Standard Catalog of American Cars 45-75) will arrive. Very strange, though, that I´ve overlooked the black 05 GTO so far...inexplicably, really, for I´m especially fond of the Monaro/GTO. Getting old that´s called, I think.

Here´s to you!

--328cia 21:37, 4 November 2006 (UTC)


Hi again,
thanks for keeping up your good and useful work.
If there is a need for any particular Euro model to be covered, just let me know.
--328cia 17:12, 26 November 2006 (UTC)

ConstructiveEdit

I hope you take this as constructive criticism because that's my intention with bringing it up. I'm very happy that you are enthusiastic about shooting vehicles to be used for free use and the number of images is impressive, but I do deeply wish you emphasized quality over quantity. The poor composure, poor quality, and poor environments you shoot these vehicles in is such an easy thing to overcome if you were to simply put a little effort and time into each shot. Since you obviously have the time to do this kind of shooting, I highly suggest putting in this extra time. It's a very apparent and identifying trait to the random vehicle article throughout Wikipedia with your images and it would just be nice to see some of these articles have half-way decent images. Now whether you think it's a good or bad thing to be identified this much and in this way is your own thing, but considering the time people put in to create the factual content of these articles, they deserve equal time on the images. I think the first thing I would suggest (as if you asked for my opinion in the first place) would be that if it's raining outside or all of the cars are still wet, it might not be the greatest time in the world to start shooting vehicles. Food for thought I guess. RichN (talk) 07:56, 26 December 2006 (UTC)

After sleeping on my comment and re-reading them a couple days afterward, I need to apologize for my tone. It came off insulting which was exactly what I was trying to avoid and, for that, I'm sorry. The images you shoot are actually perfect catalysts for viewers and editors to attempt to bring their own content to the articles which was something that I didn't think of when I first saw them. I really like that idea and hope that if better content is brought forward, you don't mind having some of the more intermediate quality content replaced. RichN (talk) 23:49, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Image:85-90 Buick Electra.jpgEdit

This car is actually a '90-'91 LeSabre. Electras had a more-formal roofline, and the rear quarter window was more or less rectangular with a rounded corner on top. That rounded style of grille was unique to the '90-'91 LeSabre and was never used on Electras. I'm not sure what the deal is with renaming images here, so I'll let you take care of it. Thanks. --Sable232 16:37, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

How come you keep posting F-150s on the F-Series category?!! If you wanna post an F-150, do it on the Ford F-150 category. For an F-250, do it on the F-250 category. For an F-350, do it on the F-350 category. -- Bull-Doser 23:42, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Image:Oldsmobile-Omega.jpgEdit

This is actually a Cutlass Supreme. I think it's a 1979 model, but I'm not 100% sure. I'll try and find out soon. --Sable232 16:13, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Yep. That car is a 1979 Cutlass Supreme. --Sable232 15:24, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Horizon lineEdit

Hello IFCAR. While going through your gallery, I was noticing a large number of images you've contributed had very misaligned horizon lines. Examples include the following:

08-Subaru-Legacy-SpecB.jpg

While I can appreciate the number of images you contribute to Commons, I think they could be a whole lot more valuable if they were just composed correctly. An image I really like was a Legacy SpecB (as shown to the right), but it was shot misaligned with the horizon. I took the liberty of uploading an improved image that was straightened, recreated, white balanced, and tonal ranges corrected. Just a little constructive criticism I guess. RichN (talk) 02:21, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:Mitsubishi Montero Sport.jpgEdit

There already was an image with that name, so I reverted your upload. If you want to use another image of that Mitsubishi model, please upload your file with another name. /Ö 15:47, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

It looks like the warning message has been moved. It used to be shown when the upload button was clicked. Now I see a warning before the upload button when I have entered a name for the "Destination filename". (I don't know when this change was made.) /Ö 16:02, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Unecessary CategoriesEdit

Please stop this categorization of automobile images. They are already correct categorized and there is no need to put them in their supercategory to. And would you please help me, to undo the edits you did? Thank you --MB-one 21:14, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Useless categoriesEdit

Hello, why did you add the Category:BMW 3-Series to very much images of cars of the BMW 3 series? They are already categorized to subcategories. This category is useless and it is a duplicate of Category:BMW 3 Series! So I want you to remove them. I have already removed the useless categories of all the images of the Audi 100 because they are sorted in subcategories. If you want to see how much time I lost because of undoing the useless categories, please see my user contributions. Would you help me with removing these categories? --217.224.121.190 20:25, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Would like to aquire some of your photosEdit

Dear IFCAR,

Zurock is currently looking for images of vehicles, mostly from 1989 thru 1997, but we are also interested in more recent and older models for our uDrive application on Facebook.

I have been scouring the wikipedia commons to obtain images one at a time, but it is a tedious and time-consuming project. I realized it would be far more efficient to contact you directly to see whether you might be willing to send us your collection directly.

Do you have a list of the images you have available? How is it organized? Would you be willing to work with us on making sure the right image is associated with the right vehicle?

Please let me know if you'd be interested in helping us make your images more visible and usefull to more people.

With warm regards, uDrive Chauffeur

Cutlass SalonEdit

IFCAR,

I found this image of yours. It's actually an '86 Cutlass Salon (you can tell by the black trim instead of chrome on the front, plus the emblem on the C-pillar looks to say Salon on it. '85s had an eggcrate grille.) Even though it's the same basic car as a Supreme, maybe the image should be renamed so it's more accurate? Not a big deal, just a little detail.

Hello, IFCAR!

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.

File:2011 Buick Regal 2.jpgEdit

I had a concern with File:2011 Buick Regal 2.jpg -- a quick search turned up a higher-resolution version ( http://www.thedetroitbureau.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/2011-Buick-Regal-main.jpg ) than the one available on the linked Flickr source page, suggesting the Flickr uploader might not actually have permission to use it.

Do you have a way of confirming the image's legality for use at Wikimedia, or should it be nominated for deletion?

Thanks! IFCAR (talk) 01:05, 2 April 2011 (UTC)


The flickr uploader is the the company Buick itself and these photos are provided to the press for use and uploaded to flickr by the company. Hopefully this is sufficient evidence of the uploader. If it helps here is the link to the users photostream on flickr [1] and here is the link to the photo [2]

Hope this helps aaaaplay (talk) 05:42, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
