Hello, Nephron!

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.

I was considering using your image of Pheochromocytoma in a presentation, who do I attribute it to?

Hi Nephron,

I would like to use your picture of the Masson's trichrome stained artery cross-section for a talk on the transcriptomic basis of atherosclerosis. Do I have your permission? If so, who do I attribute it to?

Thanks,

Shurjo

Dear Nephron,

My name is James. I am assisting in publishing an ENT review book. We are looking for permission to reprint your image of paraganglioma. Do you have a copy that's at least 300 dpi?

If this is possible, we will include the following credit line and copyright acknowledgement with your reproduction:

Image reprinted with permission from Nephron.

I have attached the image we would like to request permission to use in our book. Please feel free to contact me via email at studiojw@gmail.com

Thank you in advance for all your time and help.

Sincerely,

James

Hi James:
If you are referring to the carotid body tumour, I do have the images in higher resolution, but I am not inclined to upload them because they aren't quite in focus. I will re-take the images at some time in the future. What is the time frame of the book? Nephron  T|C 00:16, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
I re-photographed the carotid body tumour (paraganglioma). The images are here: File:Carotid_body_tumour_2_low_mag.jpg, File:Carotid_body_tumour_2_intermed_mag.jpg and File:Carotid_body_tumour_2_high_mag.jpg. Whether they are 300 DPI, depends on how large you make 'em on the page. Nephron  T|C 18:24, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Nephron- My name is Caroline and I work at an ad agency. My coworker especially liked one of your images and we were wondering how to get permission to possibly use any of your images?

Hi Caroline,
You don't need my explicit permission -- but you do have to abide by the licensing (GFDL or CC), which is notated in detail for each image (e.g. licensing info an image I created). I briefly described this on my user page. I would be happy to hear where you're going to make use of the image(s) and which image(s)-- though this isn't required by the licensing. Nephron  T|C 18:00, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Nephron, I am an italian high school student and my dream is to be an anatomical pathologist, I want to tell you that I liked each one of your images and I want to thank you because with your images I can "feed" my passion and my interest. --GBMorgagni (talk) 19:04, 20 July 2010 (UTC)

Dear Nephron, this is an advanced-feedback: for a publication (by Ernst Schering Foundation Berlin, Germany) comming out march, 24 2011, I like to use your picture "MI_with_contraction_bands". The book is about "fingerprints..." and completes the same named exhibition the Foundation’s project space, where the performative installations and live laboratories by US-American biomedia artist Paul Vanouse is shown now. Curated by Jens Hauser, the exhibition presents the world premiere of the "Suspect Inversion Center," (SIC) an operational laboratory in which Vanouse creates identical “genetic fingerprints” of criminals and celebrities from his own DNA... Please look here for more information: http://www.scheringstiftung.de/en/project-space/news/2528-paul-vanouse-fingerprints-.html. Thank you for the possibility to use your pictures for free. Kind regards Linda. (For an answer: linda . stanke @ google mail . com)

Thanks for the quick note! I'd go to the show... but, unfortunately, I'm not currently in Berlin. It would be nice if Vanouse made his this work available on the internet... so I could see it and the derivative of my work. Nephron  T|C 05:45, 8 April 2011 (UTC)


use of a photo in a commercial brochureEdit

Hi,

I work at a cell culture firm and we woudl like to use your photo of Thumus tissue on the cover of our brochure. We are happy to give you the credit in the document. I assume that the contents of the brochure, which will not refer to the photo is aggregated materials and there would not be an unlimited use of our content. Are you OK with that? Terry.taciuk@stemcell.com

You have to follow a license associated with the image. AFAIK, the GDFL does not prohibit commercial use. Nephron  T|C 05:45, 8 April 2011 (UTC)

Do you have similar photos you would be willing to liscence for our commercial use?

Re: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Kidney_cd10_ihc.jpgEdit

Hi,

Are you sure this image is of a normal kidney? To me it looks like there's pretty massive inflammatory infiltrate and quite a bit of cellular debris in the tubules, which would be more suggestive of a transplant rejection. Blahdenoma (talk) 03:31, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Melanosis coliEdit

Dear Nephron,

My name is Michael and I would like to use your histological slide on melanosis coli for a chapter in a book I am contributing to about Gastroenterology MCQs. I am looking for permission to reprint your image of histological melanosis coli. Do you have a copy that's at least 300 dpi? I will certainly insert the credit line and copyright acknowledgement. I would be grateful if you could contact me on: michaelfung@gmx.de Kind regards, Michael

Hi Michael,
I moved your text to the bottom -- as it is customary to add to the bottom of the page. You are welcome to use any of my images as is -- provided you follow one of the (copyleft) licenses (CC Share-alike or GDFL). Whether a given image is 300 dpi, depends on how big you make the image on the page, and its resolution. Generally, I don't have the images in higher resolution that on the WC. Nephron  T|C 04:19, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

LocationEdit

Dear Nephron,

can you give information about the location (organ/tissue) in your fotos? So we/I can better use them in organ specific contexts.

e.g.: File:Aspergillus_-_intermed_mag.jpg

Many thanks for sharing these great fotographs!

Permission for File:RCA atherosclerosis.jpgEdit

Hi, I wish to use your photo of File:RCA atherosclerosis.jpg in my science book. Please kindly email me at jouehuey.yeoh@pearson.com for any permission clearance I need to know. Thank you.

Joue Huey

Hi Joue Huey:
I don't generally do email -- unless it is via the Wikicommons, i.e. you are another Wikicommons user and send me a private message. I don't think the image is one of my better ones, as it has a bad asymmetric vignetting effect. I am planning to redo that image at some point in the future, if I find the time and come across a good case. Above said, you are welcome to use it as long as you follow one of the licences (CC or GFDL). If you are going to use it, I'd appreciated it if you can post a link here to the book/information about the book when it is done. Nephron  T|C 17:03, 18 May 2012 (UTC)

Hi Nephron Thank you, I will follow the licenses, I suggest to credit you as User:Nephron @ Wikimedia Commons, CC by-sa. Currently I also wish to use another photo of your File:Small intestine low mag.jpg. I will credit as well. Thank you for sharing all these wonderful photos.

Joue Huey

I put some more comments on your talk page. Nephron  T|C 13:53, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks a lot Nephron for the image and also advising me on the usage.

Published Reference for Teratoma ImageEdit

Hello Nephron,

I wish to use your teratoma image (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/11/Teratoma_2_low_mag.jpg) for a presentation of mine, but cannot use the wikipedia citation. Is this image form a published scientific article, or do you have another citation which I could use as a reference?

Thanks! Arthur

File:Keratocystic odontogenic tumour - 2 - intermed mag.jpgEdit

Hello Nephron,

for me the epithelium looks unkeratinized, because I see no superificial eosinophilic tinge, no absent nuclei and no keratin lamellae, so why do you think is this not an (unkeratinized) dentigerous cyst? --Patho (talk) 12:12, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Permission to use Images of Glycogen Storage DisorderEdit

Dear Nephron,

I request your kind permission to use images of Glycogen Storage Disorder in my book of General Pathology which will be published shortly. The images will be referenced as per your instructions. I am unable to understand the legal terms used in the webpage. Can you kindly help me. I would appreciate if you can kindly contact me at my e-mail id: drsudhashivaraj@yahoo.com

Thank you Warm Regards Dr. Sudha

Hello Dr. Sudha:
Nice to hear you find my images good enough for your book. Details about re-use of images on the Commons are here. Generally, if it is a book, you should (1) give the image credit where the image appears, e.g. Nephron (c) 2007, CC-BY-SA 3.0, and (2) print the full licence (CC-BY-SA or GFDL) in an appendix, such that your readers know they can reuse and distribute the images under the conditions specified in the license. Nephron  T|C 19:55, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Dear Nephron, Thank you. I went through your entire gallery, your images are not only good enough they are very beautiful, i loved them. You have done a wonderful job. Being in a non-academic setup I was having difficulty in finding photographs of rare disorders and tumors. Im glad I found your images. Can I please use a few more of your pictures for the chapter on Cancer Biology. They will all be referenced as per your instructions which I will be sending to my publisher. I will let you know once my book is [published]. Thanks again. Yours Sincerely Sudha

You are welcome to use any of the images (provided you follow one of the licences). I would be happy to hear from you again when the book is published. You should review the images carefully. I've done my best to take pictures that are representative of what the image is labeled -- but it is possible I didn't get the most representative field. Nephron  T|C 13:17, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks from a studentEdit

Nephron-

Thanks much for your prolific pathology posting. I've been using many of your images in crafting my Pathology reviews for local circulation between med students here at our school. Having your Creative Commons library at my disposal is exceptional as a resource to illustrate the key features of a variety of conditions. Keep up the good work! You're getting many students through to levels of understanding that would be otherwise fraught with a cacaphony of distracting or irrelevant information. Thank-you for keeping our education vividly illustrated.

--StrangeAesculapian

It is nice to hear that they are appreciated. Nephron  T|C 23:20, 14 October 2012 (UTC)


Nephron - Thank you, thank you and thank you. Your top class images in Pathology (I capitalize it because I respect it) have really made Step 1 study a lot easier, esp. with all the eponymous jargon involved. Just like your pictures, things are so much more clearer now. Thank you again. Ali

[[1]] file:Rectal prolapse - low mag.JPGEdit

TY for upload. Are you able to describe the cellular changes demonstrated? I feel it would be good to include these in the caption or the etiology section. Thanks in advance. 212.183.140.32 12:31, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

someone from WPMED has supplied this info now. TY again for upload. 212.183.128.144 21:05, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

use of image on a book coverEdit

Hi Nephron,

may we have your permission to use the photo (File:Small cell lung cancer - cytology.jpg) on the cover of our book? If we have your permission, we will give you credit for the photo. Please feel free to email me at fting.lee@gmail.com

Many thanks in advance, Fengting

Nice to hear you find the image good enough for your book. Details about re-use of images on the Commons are here. Usually, one puts the image credit where the image appears, e.g. Nephron (c) 2010, CC-BY-SA 3.0, but I think it is customary to put it one the page after the inside cover -- for the cover image. Beyond that, you need to print the full licence (CC-BY-SA or GFDL) in an appendix of the book, such that your readers know they can reuse and distribute the image under the conditions specified in the license. If you can place a link to a picture of the cover... I'd be curious to see it-- though that isn't necessary to use the image. Nephron  T|C 04:01, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi Nephron,

thanks for your reply. Can I confirm that you hold the copyright for the image and that we may use it in our cover? Of course, if we do use it, we will cite the source accordingly. I have a draft cover out already but I will require a high-res image file if I'm going to use it for the actual cover. Do you have a high res file for the image? I'll send you the cover via email so that you can have a look at it. My address is fting.lee@gmail.com, please do drop me an email.

Microphotographs showing effects of RadiationEdit

Dear Nephron, Hi, Im Dr. Sudha and I had written to you few months back requesting permission to use your images in my book of general pathology. The book is progressing well and will be published in 2013. I badly need microphotographs showing the effects of radiation. If you have any can you please give them to me ? I will be extremely grateful to you for the same and they will be licensed according to your instructions. Thank You Warm Regards Sudha

I don't have a good example of radiation effect -- at least not yet. Nephron  T|C 03:40, 4 February 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 openEdit

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

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. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

Case report of ASPSEdit

Dear Neprhon,

We would like to use your image of Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma in a poster presentation that will be given locally as well as nationally. In addition, we would like to ask permissions to use it in a case report manuscript. Please advise us on what the best was is to give copyright/permissions on our poster and manuscript. Thanks. Feel free to email me at studiojw@gmail.com.

Best,

jw

Hi JW - You are welcome to use my images how you see fit. How to re-use my images is spelled-out on my user page.
In the context of a case report -- if you're not using the pictures for comparison purposes, it would be more appropriate to use images from the case. I would suggest you contact the pathologist that made the diagnosis. They can probably supply you images and also help you understand the elements of the pathology report that should be in the case report, e.g. confirmatory molecular testing for the characteristic chromosomal translocation, findings from electron microscopy (if done). Nephron  T|C 04:48, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks!Edit

Hi Nephron - I just wanted to thank you for putting your images up, they've really helped with my boards studying!

I am happy to hear they are being put to use. Good luck on the boards - if you haven't written 'em yet. Nephron  T|C 00:09, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

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 »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Permission to print and attributionEdit

"Como ves" (www.comoves.unam.mx) is a science magazine for high school students and young adults published and subsidized by the National Autonomous University of Mexico. We are currently preparing an article on papanicolau tests and would like to use some of your images to illustrate it. I would like to know if this is possible and if you want to use your user name or any other. Looking forward to hearing from you Yours faithfully

Ok, but I believe it might look a little weird. Can I send you a PDF of the article so you can check it? imarmase@universum.unam.mx


Whipple DiseaseEdit

Hey -- I'm looking at your lovely images of Whipple's disease histology, but I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what I'm looking at -- are all the clear/cloudy cells under the epithelium the foamy macrophages? Are they considered PAS positive, or would those just be the occasional very-red ones? Would you consider making a labeled version of the image for the entry? (I'd whip one up myself, but I'm just a med student, and have very little confidence in my accuracy. :D) Eccentricity (talk) 01:19, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Question about "File:Periportal hepatosteatosis"Edit

Dear Nephron, My name is I, a japanese hepatologist. Thank you for providing beautiful pathologic images to Wikimedia Commons. I'm interested in your file(Periportal Hepatosteatosis) very much. Would you teach me about the differential diagnosis of periportal hepatosteatosis? I think the periportal steatosis is rare phenomenon in NAFLD and mainly present in children. In your differential diagnosis, (e.g. hepatitis C type 3, starvation, total parenteral nutrition) I think it may due to depletion of the VLDL secretion from zone 1. Please tell me the reference paper or the textbook about differential diagnosis (C-TAPES).

Sincerely, I

Hello I: I found the list on http://www.pathconsultddx.com in 2009. Unfortunately, that is no longer available. I did find something about periportal steatosis in children.[2] The classic teaching is that NAFLD is centrilobular steatosis (like alcoholic liver disease). The above said, I think it is often difficult to neatly differentiate periportal and centrilobular steatosis. There is considerable overlap from a pathologic perspective - especially if there is a lot of fatty change. In any case, the standard liver pathology reference is MacSween's Pathology of the Liver. I imagine that would describe the patterns and more. I don't know much about VLDL secretion. I find the mass transfer end of liver physiology interesting-- and wonder why portal vein pumps never were developed further. Take Care, Nephron  T|C 04:04, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
