Batch uploading LOC images
Hi Fae - I could see you have plenty of experience uploading Library of Congress photos. I don't want to do things improperly (and slowly) by manually downloading and filling in information for potentially 1,042 images, 258 of which are "No Known Copyright" Jack Delano photographs. I am working to improve Chicago Union Station, and would really appreciate these images on Commons! Best, ɱ (talk) 22:22, 19 March 2020 (UTC)
- Not been very focused. However this is my second week in isolation and it looks like it's going to be official that I have to remain this way for a minimum of another 12 weeks, so I'll probably revisit the general loc batch routine soon. --Fæ (talk) 08:52, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
- Thank you, I'd really appreciate it. These images are important to my reworking the station article. ɱ (talk) 14:30, 22 March 2020 (UTC)
- I'm also looking to upload a bunch related to the Empire State Building. Is this something feasible soon, or should I start some individual uploads? ɱ (talk) 19:16, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
- There's no harm in getting on with selected images if you wish, the batch upload should be able to work out where files have already been uploaded, in fact I think it's the unique image ID that invariably filters these out rather than the more complex process of checking for existing SHA1 values.
- However the forecast is pretty cold today, so although I'll spend some time in the garden, I should have more time today to spend at the keyboard. --Fæ (talk) 09:55, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
- Okay thanks. Turns out the incredible Carol Highsmith also has some great photos of the High Line at the LOC that would be a great addition to Commons. ɱ (talk) 16:50, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
- Also, how do you accomplish the batch uploading, is it something I could attempt? Is it something I could translate to other digital archives? I've found innumerous PD images on the Columbus Metropolitan Library and Ohio History Connection websites, which would take me too long to upload individually, so I've only done a handful. ɱ (talk) 06:29, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
- If you know python, then you could create a script using mw:pywikibot and do almost anything you can imagine.
- If you want something off the shelf, then c:Commons:Upload_tools#Pattypan is probably the most popular way of doing this semi-automatically (I am no expert in these tools).
- Aware it's been a long wait, but the LOC update is still of my list of things to get around to. In day 77 of isolation, as we are finding out, being locked away with one's own projects is not necessarily productive. --Fæ (talk) 11:18, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
