Old masters paintingsEdit

Hello Jan. I am very interested in painting of old masters of Europe. especially I am a fun of portraits. You know how to download images from different auction sites, such as christies, sothebys and others. I constantly watch for updates in your gallery. Thank you for what you do. In this regard, I request to you. Display (upload) at the your gallery regularly or send me on my address high resolution images of the old masters from the sites auctions christies and sothebys. I'll be very grateful for the help.

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

hi, nice upload. i would suggest you consider using artwork template with old uploader here or for small batches com:pattypan. cheers. Slowking4 § Sander.v.Ginkel's revenge 11:25, 8 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, but the newer uploader takes information from the meta-data. I built my workflow around that. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 20:42, 8 March 2017 (UTC)


Hallo, Jan Arkesteijn, waarom opteerde je voor een portret van een schilder ipv deze afbeelding (of een andere gelijkaardige foto) in de creatorbox? Lotje (talk) 17:02, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

Hallo Lotje, er was nog geen sprake van een optie in 2013. Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 22:22, 9 March 2017 (UTC)

File:Johnny Weissmuller (1970).jpgEdit

Hello Jan Arkesteijn -- As you requested, I added a separate, greyscale version of this image. I'm pleased to extend this courtesy, since I recognize that the original version of this lovely 1970 shot is a (sort of) historical image from the Netherlands National Archive. However, you should be aware that when you upload images with the Creative Commons licence, the image is identified as being in the public domain and anyone may use or modify it as they see fit. Other editors may not feel obliged to extend a similar courtesy, and you will not have much recourse. Respectfully -- WikiPedant (talk) 18:47, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
