"own work"Edit

Hi. You've been extracting images from free sources, and then uploading them as "own work". That's not what "own work" means, and can screw up the provenance. The author of the original image is considered the author of the extracted image too.

When you extracted File:Bee-sting BHL.svg from File:The new bee-keepers' text-book (Page 79) BHL42109833.jpg, for instance, the author is still "King, Albert J.; King, Homer A.; King, N. H.", just as with the original.

I'll fix these later on; please be more careful in future. Thank you. DS (talk) 15:24, 3 June 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the comment. However, keep these things in mind:
  • What I uploaded were not just cutouts but vectorisations. Vectorising a bitmap requires quite some preprocessing of the original image, then fiddling with the parameters of the automated tracing tool, and then manual postprocessing of the result (in the two files you point out, zoom in well on the left zigzagging thing and look carefully to see only some of the obvious adjustments). This is work, and that work was my own.
  • The original image is in public domain, which means that technically no attribution is required in any form. Authorship is a nice to have — as you rightly point out, for provenance — but it is not required. I've linked both images both ways, making it possible to find the original for those inclined to do so. There could possibly be better templates to explain the matter — if you have those, let me know how they're called.
