Seeking permission to use your image "Coccolithus pelagicus 07.jpg"Edit

Dear Hannes,

I'm writing to seek your permission to use your image "Coccolithus pelagicus" in a book to be published by Robert M. Hazen: Symphony in C: Carbon and the Evolution of (Almost) Everything. The book is written for a public audience to help them understand the important role carbon plays in our lives.

I just wanted to get confirmation that you'd be willing to provide it under the guidelines of the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license.

Cheers! --Mice of Mu (talk) 13:18, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Hallo, you are welcome to use the image under the licence as any image on commons. no need to ask. Hannes Grobe (talk) 21:15, 11 October 2018 (UTC)

inverted China photosEdit

Hello! I was just categorising China photos and saw your images. The words on the images (like File:China1982-626.jpg and File:China1982-175.jpg) are horizontally inverted. Do you mind if I request an inversion? I am also afraid that this might be a consistent problem in the same batch of photos. Would you like to check your negatives against the uploaded photos? Regards. --Roy17 (talk) 00:28, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

some of the images might be inverted during the digitalization process. you are very welcome to correct this. thank you also for categorisation. Hannes Grobe (talk) 09:00, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2018 is open!Edit

Dear Hgrobe,

You are receiving this message because we noticed that you voted in R1 of the 2018 Picture of the Year contest, but not yet in the second round. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2018) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked.

In the final (and current) round, you may vote for a maximum of three images. The image with the most votes will become the Picture of the Year 2018.

Round 2 will end 17 March 2019, 23:59:59.
