  • Tagging looks OK for me.
  • I think will be good idea to create template for historical images. It'll allow internationalization and also split data and it's representation. Is it possible to translate data to other languages (English, Russian, etc) to make images more useful in other projects?

Template would be good indeed. The table, e.g. in smf 3761 345, isn't really easy to use. --  Docu  at 11:57, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Switched to Template:Artwork --WikedKentaur (talk) 15:45, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Actually with table I meant:

Muuseumikogu </td><td> Maalikogu</td></tr>
Autor </td><td> 
Köler, Johann</td></tr>
Olemus </td><td> 
Kunstiese </td><td> </td></tr>
Säilivus </td><td> rahuldav</td></tr>

Sample from EKM00457 M01783. I suppose it should be possible to map this to {{artwork}}. BTW, for photos, {{artwork}} isn't ideal. --  Docu  at 11:59, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

  • For paintings I would suggest also filling in the artist parameter to {{artwork}}, as you already add a correct author category. You could use an expression like {{subst:#ifexist:Creator:Johann Köler|{{Creator:Johann Köler}}|Johann Köler}} to automatically use a creator template, if one exists. Of course, deriving other {{artwork}} parameters, like medium (with {{Technique}}) template, you could use Template:Technique/et for translations) and dimensions (with {{size}} template) would be nice too. You could also add the date parameter to {{information}} based on the "Daatum" field. Don't feel pressured to add them, if it's too much work, though. One more thing: create a single table instead of multiple ones (looks a bit messy otherwise).
If you are interested in additional Estonian historical image sources, have you seen / considered importing from Anyway, nice work, I'm certainly glad to see someone write a bot to improve Estonian content on Commons. —Quibik (talk) 22:37, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Some of the images have possible copyright/PD-labelling issues. For example File:Riigitegelane_Jaan_Tõnisson,_ERM_Fk_2827-662.jpg is author unknown, taken in the 1930s, and claims definitively that the author has been dead for 70 years already. Others don't even have dates or date estimates, or date bounds. We need at least something to know if we can host a file as PD. --99of9 (talk) 00:00, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
