Hello!

Thanks for uploading some pictures to Wikipedia. I wanted to make sure you were aware of some of the requirements and good practices for uploaded images.

  • Pick an image name.
When uploading an image, pick a file name that is descriptive, and unique. Remember that many images may be uploaded about the same topic, and remember that names are case sensitive.
  • Source the image.
On the image description page, explain where the image came from. If you created the image yourself, then say so. If it's from the web, give a URL. If it's a screenshot of a movie or game, or a scan from a book, give the title.
  • Provide copyright and license information.
This part is a little bit trickier, but it's very important. The copyright of the image generally belongs to whomever created it.
If it's a photograph you took, or an image you created (modifying an image that already exists doesn't count) in software like Photoshop or GIMP, then you own the copyright. To upload it to Wikipedia, you must agree to license it under the GFDL (which allows anyone to use it, but requires that they give credit to the original author and requires that any further edit to the image be licensed under the GFDL as well) or release it into the public domain (which allows anyone to use it for any purpose without restriction.) Do this by placing an appropriate tag on the image description page, like {{GFDL}} or {{PD}}. Be sure to mention that you created the image. If you're using {{PD}}, you may also want to use {{NoRightsReserved}}, since there is some dispute as to whether one may grant items into the public domain.
If you didn't create the image, or the copyright somehow belongs to another party (like a screenshot, which you might "create", but the copyright belongs to the author of the movie or video game), then you need to find another tag that describes the copyright status of the image. Images used on Wikipedia need to be free for our use and the use of sites which reproduce our content. This means that images cannot have a restriction such as "only for use by Wikipedia", or "for non-commercial use only", or "for educational use". Images without a free license may be usable in certain articles under fair use, but such a use should be justified on the image description page.
  • Describe the image.
To another reader, the image may not be immediately understood. A caption in an article doesn't explain the image to a visitor who sees it on its image page. Put a brief explanation of what is in the image on the image description page, similar to what you might include in a caption on an article.

Thanks again for your contributions. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me at my talk page. feydey 16:43, 23 May 2006 (UTC)


Image Tagging Image:Röyksopp.jpg[edit]

Warning sign
This media may be deleted.

Thanks for uploading Image:Röyksopp.jpg. I notice the 'image' page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then there needs to be an argument why we have the right to use the media on Wikipedia (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then it needs to be specified where it was found, i.e., in most cases link to the website where it was taken from, and the terms of use for content from that page.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag then one should be added. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media qualifies as fair use, consider reading fair use, and then use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair_use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other media, consider checking that you have specified their source and copyright tagged them, too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any unsourced and untagged images will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey 16:43, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:Röyksopp.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Röyksopp.jpg. However, the image may soon be deleted unless we can determine the copyright holder and copyright status. The Wikimedia Foundation is very careful about the images included in Wikipedia because of copyright law (see Wikipedia's Copyright policy).

The copyright holder is usually the creator, the creator's employer, or the last person who was transferred ownership rights. Copyright information on images is signified using copyright templates. The three basic license types on Wikipedia are open content, public domain, and fair use. Find the appropriate template in Wikipedia:Image copyright tags and place it on the image page like this: {{TemplateName}}.

Please signify the copyright information on any other images you have uploaded or will upload. Remember that images without this important information can be deleted by an administrator. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. feydey 16:43, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:Terence Malick.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Terence Malick.jpg. Wikipedia gets hundreds of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

David Healy shot[edit]

Hi,

You can't upload sports photos you find on the Web. They are all copyrighted. The "screenshot" tag you used for the David Healy picture is an incorrect usage of that tag.

Unfortunately, public domain or GFDL sports photos are rare. That's just how it goes. Tempshill 00:14, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

Image:Röyksopp.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Röyksopp.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link. Note that any fair use images which are replaceable by free-licensed alternatives will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --Chowbok 03:46, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

Unspecified source for Image:HenkeLarsson.JPG[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:HenkeLarsson.JPG. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, then you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, then their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Fair use, use a tag such as {{Non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 22:57, 22 January 2007 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Ytny 22:57, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Photographs[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you uploaded Image:HenkeLarsson.JPG and Image:Michael-Madsen.gif, and marked them as GFDL-Self. Please remember that if you got a picture from the web or screen capture, you didn't "create" the original image, and the copyright belongs to the website or the network.

You could claim fair use, but for living celebrities, you're not going to have a very strong case.

Thanks. Ytny 23:01, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned fair use image (Image:ManUtdLogo.PNG)[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:ManUtdLogo.PNG. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable under fair use (see our fair use policy).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any fair use images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you.

Band Origin vs. Artist Origin[edit]

Regarding the Snow Patrol article, you really should read the Discussion page. This entry, specifically, discusses the definitions and qualifications of band origin vs. artist origin. The band itself was formed in Dundee, Scotland by Northern Irish artists. I'm/we're not disputing that the band members are from Northern Ireland. If the band, though, was officially formed in Dundee, Scotland then that's where the origin must be stated. In the case of Snow Patrol, if you were to check their website, they even state that their origin is Dundee, Scotland. Is a football team (let's make an imaginary one up... FC Belfast Blokes) Brazilian because the majority of their members are from Brazil? No. They're an Irish football team. Do they even have to have a single Irish person on the team to qualify as an Irish football team? No. They were formed in Belfast, Ireland, and as such, the team's origin is stated as Belfast, Ireland. Now, we've structured and worded the article as neutral and accommodating as possible, pointing out that while Snow Patrol's origin is Scotland, and most of their members are Irish (Northern Irish), they have a _global_ style and appeal, and aren't definitively Scotch. We welcome your contributions, but in regards to these facts – origin – it will remain as it is. -- HawkeAnyone 16:17, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Duplicate images uploaded[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Russel Gewirtz.jpg. A machine-controlled robot account noticed that you uploaded the same image twice: as Image:Russel Gewirtz.jpg and also as Image:Russell Gewirtz.jpg. The latter copy of the file has been marked for speedy deletion since it is redundant. If this sounds okay to you, there is no need for you to take any action.

This is an automated message- you have not upset or annoyed anyone. In the future, you may save yourself some confusion if you supply a meaningful file name and remember exactly which name you chose (file names are case sensitive, including the extension) so that you won't lose track of your uploads. For tips on good file naming, see Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions about this notice, or feel that the deletion is inappropriate, please contact User:Staecker, who operates the robot account. Staeckerbot 14:16, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

Possibly unfree Image:Stellastarr.jpg[edit]

An image that you uploaded or altered, Image:Stellastarr.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images because its copyright status is disputed.

You are welcome to add comments to its entry at Wikipedia:Possibly unfree images if you are interested in it not being deleted. Thank you. Butseriouslyfolks 18:07, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already.

Image:CliniqueMens.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:CliniqueMens.jpg. I notice the 'image' page specifies that the image is being used under fair use, but its use in Wikipedia articles fails our first fair use criterion in that it illustrates a subject for which a freely licensed image could reasonably be found or created that provides substantially the same information. If you believe this image is not replaceable, please:

  1. Go to the image description page and edit it to add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}}, without deleting the original Replaceable fair use template.
  2. On the image discussion page, write the reason why this image is not replaceable at all.

Alternatively, you can also choose to replace the fair use image by finding a freely licensed image of its subject, requesting that the copyright holder release this (or a similar) image under a free license, or by taking a picture of it yourself.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified how these images fully satisfy our fair use criteria. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on this link.

I have tagged Image:Clin.jpg as {{replaceable fair use}}. If you wish to dispute this assertion, please add {{Replaceable fair use disputed}} to the image description page and a comment explaining your reasoning to the the image talk page. Butseriouslyfolks 18:10, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Image licensing[edit]

Hi, I noticed you uploaded Image:The Bravery.jpg, Image:Nick Valensi.jpg, and Image:The Bravery.jpg. I was wondering if you could develop why you think these images are published under the GPL. They look much like promotional pictures to me? Could you please ease my concerns as soon as possible please, I plan to retag them as lacking a license. -- lucasbfr talk 10:10, 9 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Ballinamallard United.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:Ballinamallard United.png. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia constitutes fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. -- lucasbfr talk 10:13, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
