I'm investigating the copyright status of some recently uploaded images ( - granit.jpg). Could you read the copyright info from here: and tell me if it permits third party use. Unfortunately my Slovak isn't great! Many thanks in advance. ed g2stalk 23:47, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

Hi, the email reads:
Good morning,

I value your offer very much, if I find time I certainly will write some articles. Of course you can  
use materials from our web, it would be nice if you would cite the source.

All the best

Image:Firefox 1.0.6 sk.jpgEdit

The Wikimedia logo is not GFDL, it is copyright by Wikimedia. The photo of John Paul II is fair use; hence the screenshot can not be GFDL. Uploaded a new screenshot. --Palica 07:57, 27 August 2005 (UTC)

About Image:Evince 0.3.1 sk.jpg; Microsoft Word is protected by copyright. WikiCommons do not allow screenshots of computer programs not licensed under an open license (GFDL etc). Thuresson 04:05, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

Firefox is a screenshots of sk.wikipedia website. So change the license to whatever. Evince is an opensource program that displays .pdf and .ps the window title saying "Microsoft Word - ..." just tells that the pdf was created from a .doc file but that doesn't mean this picture is of ms word. --Palica 17:40, 26 August 2005 (UTC)
And just a note to Thuresson - next time you delete some of my images, I would much appreciate that you drop me a note. Thank you in advance :) --Palica 08:00, 27 August 2005 (UTC)
Sorry. The GFDL logo is copyright by the Wikimedia Foundation. The portrait of the pope is "fair use" and WikiCommons do not allow fair use photos. Thuresson 09:27, 27 August 2005 (UTC)
No problem, is the new screenshot (firefox same name) ok? --Palica 11:18, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Video stabilizationEdit

I have produced a version of Image:A_wasp_eating_a_fly_DSCN2740.ogg which is motion stabilized, please take a look at Image:A_wasp_eating_a_fly_DSCN2740_stable.ogg. Your video was just the first one I picked at random, it turns out it was a good choice because it has a fair amout of motion. Do you like the change? There is some quality loss because I am reencoding the compressed content, but overall I think it is an improvement. If you like the result, I would really like a copy of the highest resolution orignal you have so that I could stabilize it before transcoding to theora. The more stable video is easier for the compressor, so the result should look even better. I'm looking forward to your comments. --Gmaxwell 08:03, 18 November 2005 (UTC)

Like it very much. Check out my user page, there are some ways how to contact me, if you don't mind. I will try to find the original somewhere :) --Palica 01:18, 20 November 2005 (UTC)
