Border. It could be trimmed and re-uploaded if we have absolute certainty that it doesn't violate copyright. Images with this type of border are usually copied from somewhere, although I can't find a source with tineye.

We don't get around having recognizable people in images by blurring faces to anonymize them.

  • Why not? LtPowers 09:27, 9 May 2011 (EDT)
Well, I would think because a) it doesn't jive with our urging "nothing but simple photography", b) it's unattractive and looks amateurish, and c) we don't have any precedent for allowing this sort of thing. texugo 11:36, 9 May 2011 (EDT)

Image:Hurshimchung Entrance.JPG[edit]

The people aren't the focus of the image, but they are recognizable, especially as a family. Maybe someone could trim off the left edge of the image, but if not...

  • Delete - texugo 11:36, 26 May 2011 (EDT)
  • I'm ambivalent whether this is kept or not, but being "recognizable" is not the sole criteria when determining privacy rights for a photo - per Privacy rights: "If a person is central to an image and identifiable, permission to publish that photo must be granted by the individual. A person is "central" if their removal or replacement would materially affect the picture, so this does not apply to crowd scenes or bystanders near monuments". In this case it seems pretty clear that the individuals are ancillary. -- Ryan 16:57, 26 May 2011 (EDT)
    • Yes, they are definitely not central to the picture even if they are clearly recognizable. Ypsilonatshared 02:17, 3 June 2011 (EDT)
  • Keep. It's a Jani contribution, is used in two articles on :en, and would be a really easy crop if one were so inclined. --Peter Talk 22:56, 3 June 2011 (EDT)

Result: Kept. -- Ryan 16:51, 6 August 2011 (EDT)


Image:Copy of local-surfer-costa-rica.jpg[edit]

  • Delete. There is no license specified, and it isn't clear that the uploader (Special:Contributions/HD_Costa_Rica) is the original photographer ("photo by pro photographer, John Ussenko"). -- Ryan 12:00, 26 May 2011 (EDT)

John Ussenko is the original photographer, you can check his website at http://www.hdcostarica.com and see the original. Where do I input the license specification? —The preceding comment was added by 71.204.133.22 (talkcontribs) .

Just WTF? Is this supposed to be on somebody's user page or what? There is absolutely no description or anything.

  • Delete - Ypsilonatshared 00:51, 27 May 2011 (EDT)
    • Are you sure it's not on someone's user page? LtPowers 19:42, 2 June 2011 (EDT)
      • I've checked through all the language versions - I've searched for the picture and then checked for possible links to the picture. There were no links from anywhere. I googled the name on the picture and I found that the picture has been on Wikimedia Commons but has been deleted from there. There has been an article on the Spanish Wikipedia about the person with the name, which then has been classified as "promocional" (advertisment) and then deleted [1] - it is still in the Google cache [2]. Interesting... Ypsilonatshared 02:09, 3 June 2011 (EDT)
        • Thorough work! In that case, I agree it should be deleted. LtPowers 16:13, 5 June 2011 (EDT)

Result: Deleted. -- Ryan 16:51, 6 August 2011 (EDT)

Image:Adlerstation.jpg[edit]

According to the uploader, this is a photograph of a wall billboard in Sochi Station. The original image that was photographed is a digitally-created artist's rendition of what Adler station will look like when it is done, and the copyright status of that image is unknown but, in my opinion, likely copyrighted, or at the very least, a very grey area that we usually try to avoid. Not to mention that the seams in the photo make it look like it was photocopied out of a brochure, which is what led me to investigate in the first place.

  • Delete - We don't typically do artist's renditions, especially secondary photographs with iffy copyright status. texugo 11:12, 22 June 2011 (EDT)
  • Delete - Yes, and I don't want to be picky but do take a look at the other pictures from the same uploader - no license specification, no information about the photographer etc. I guess they are from Wikimedia but the source should be stated. Ypsilonatshared 01:10, 23 June 2011 (EDT)
On the other photos, I have advised the user on his/her talk page. The uploader is new and has so far responded very well to advice, so I thought I'd give them a little time to rectify the situation. texugo 02:30, 23 June 2011 (EDT)

A very commercial-style image of product packaging. I don't think this really jives with our style and may border on copyright issues as it is a perfectly framed image of only the packaging.

Image:Tree framed house 2x3.jpg[edit]

Found it on Commons, where it's released into the Public Domain. So it's legal for us to host it, but a) it's way too small and b) it was uploaded to be used to promote the inn and restaurant that are now located in this historic building. LtPowers 17:32, 12 July 2011 (EDT)

Uploaded with no indication of where it was taken, linked by no articles, and with a ridiculous filename that goes far against our guidelines at How to upload files. Even if the uploader came back and told us where this was, this should be deleted and re-uploaded with a usable file name.

  • Delete - Riggwelter 17:51, 20 April 2011 (EDT)
  • Weak keep. This is trickier than that. We can easily add the location (Kennett Square, PA), but we cannot easily indicate that the original uploader released the photo into the public domain if we delete & re-upload. We really would benefit from an image move tool... --Peter Talk 23:05, 3 June 2011 (EDT)
    • I believe the current version of MediaWiki allows image moves via the same process as page moves. But now I'm curious -- what does happen if we try to 'Move' an image under this version of the software? LtPowers 16:13, 5 June 2011 (EDT)
      • You get the error message: "Source or destination title is of a special type; cannot move pages from and into that namespace." --Peter Talk 12:33, 7 June 2011 (EDT)

Deleted. If you disagree, feel free to restore the image. Riggwelter 13:45, 10 August 2011 (EDT)

Time-stamped, poorly composed photo of a restaurant exterior with people and traffic in the way.

  • Don't delete - Poor composition isn't a reason for deletion. --Tiagox2 06:37, 10 April 2011 (EDT)
But the fact that it is a photo of a business and that it has text on it probably are. texugo 00:30, 11 April 2011 (EDT)
  • Don't delete - crop the image to remove the time and date stamp. Riggwelter 17:54, 20 April 2011 (EDT)
Is it really worth the trouble? The image doesn't really show anything at all except for the sign of a restaurant, something we typically discourage... texugo 12:47, 21 April 2011 (EDT)

Lorain County images[edit]

Several uploads from User:Visitloraincounty have problems. (And thanks to Google Image Search's new drag-and-drop feature for helping me out; their database is much larger than TinEye's.)

There are a few that come from a Flickr account that is also named "Visit Lorain County". That indicates they may be legit, but they're listed "All Rights Reserved" on Flickr. Just because the user is named similarly doesn't mean the two accounts are connected in any way.

The rest of the user's uploads may be okay. I can't find an obvious source for any of them, so they could very well be original. I have not marked them with a VfD template, but I'm listing them here for completeness.

  • Image:LorainCountyFair.jpg - Found it in use on the Visit Lorain County blog, but at a lower resolution. The one we have is the highest-res version I could find.
  • Image:FAVA.jpg - Can't find this one anywhere except our own mirrors. Could be legit.
  • Image:Kayaker.jpg - Can't find it anywhere
  • Image:BRaBsign.jpg - Not particularly useful, and Google Image Search returns too many false positives to find a source.

I wouldn't be terribly surprised to find out that all of these are legit, but we would need an affirmative statement, at least, from the uploader that he/she understands the licensing requirements, and that these meet them. And that Google image matching service is impressive! --Peter Talk 19:50, 13 July 2011 (EDT)
The uploader has been non-communicative on :en despite at least two attempts to contact him/her and repeated reversions of his/her additions. He/she does appear to have e-mail enabled, though, so that might be worth a go. LtPowers 09:24, 14 July 2011 (EDT)

I am not sure what to do with this image [4]. It was a perfectly legit picture, until Wikimedia Commons decided to delete it, as shown here [5]. They deleted many of the user's pictures, as he has uploaded copyrighted pictures, but it's unclear what the status of this particular image is. They seemed to have just deleted all his pictures to be sure. What do we do with it? --globe-trotter 04:22, 5 September 2011 (EDT)

  • Delete. We assume that uploaders are paying attention to/following the licensing requirements up until the point where it has become clear that they have not. After that, the onus is on them to show where the images are coming from, and that they understand the licensing requirements. I'd follow Commons' decision. --Peter Talk 19:35, 5 September 2011 (EDT)

Probable copyright violation - tinfoil found it on a blog at namaku-popshie.blogspot.com.

This appears to have been clipped from somewhere. The uploader didn't give any info other than the claim to own the copyright, but I think there is a lot of room to doubt that claim.

Uploaded without source. Appears to have been lifted from http://www.todaytourism.com/travel-guides/Holiday-in-Tomohon.html along with some text from there. A copyright notice is posted at the bottom of the page. On top of that, it is a black-and-white image (for no apparent reason) and has a postcard-style border.

Uploader put that it is under a Creative Commons license, but didn't give source info. The company's website [6] displays a copyright notice, and tineye turns up several hits, none of which are Creative Commons-licensed websites. Even if the image licensing was OK, I can't think of a reason why it would be helpful to the travel to know the design that's going to be on their bus pass.
