< Commons:Batch uploading


  • Describe the works to be uploaded in detail (audio files, images by …):

Photos taken by site owner Yinan Chen. Mostly landscapes of several travel destinations (North America and China): Landmarks, wildlife, landscapes, fossiles, artifacts.

  • Which license tag(s) should be applied?

Author Yinan Chen says:

All photos on this site were taken by me and I have chosen to license them under the Public Domain license to form a free photos database. This means you are free to use them personally or commercially(except for photos that require a model or property release) on any project without asking for permission. Please consider giving credit to when you use the images. Please note that any trademarked models or logos that are in these pictures do not have release authorization(such as brand name cars, etc) so you may have to obtain permission from the trademark holder for such photos.

I’d say {{PD-author}}, or {{CC-zero}}; better opinion sought.

  • Is there a template that could be used on the file description pages? Do you think a special template should be created?

No, and no. File description and categorization for these seems to be trivial. An author hidden category should be created.

License-wise, this is {{cc-pd}}. darkweasel94 22:34, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
The template page say that «Creative Commons has retired this legal tool and does not recommend that it be applied to works. You may want to use {{cc-zero}} instead.». -- Tuválkin 21:47, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
That's true, but it is still what these images are licensed under. We can't just invent licenses; if the source site says it's {{cc-pd}}, then it's {{cc-pd}} and not {{cc-zero}}. darkweasel94 23:32, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

OK,I will fix it when all uploaded. I dislike to break the batch at the moment. They are "only" ~3600 images. --Slick (talk) 19:01, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
I break and all newer uploads got fixed to Category:Images from All older I doing fix now and move to the right cat. --Slick (talk) 21:20, 28 June 2014 (UTC)   fixed --Slick (talk) 21:59, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
