Sourcing and sharing photos on Wikimedia Commons
Wednesday 24 October 2018, 12:00pm - 1:00pm. Dulcie Hollyock room, Baillieu Library.
Wikimedia Commons is an online repository of free-use images, sounds, and other media files. Wikimedia Commons is free. Everyone is allowed to copy, use and modify any files here freely as long as they follow the terms specified by the author; this often means crediting the source and author(s) appropriately and releasing copies/improvements under the same freedom to others.
In this workshop, Wikimedia experts will discuss sourcing free-to-use photos and guide you through the process of uploading your photos* to WikiCommons from your computer or via a phone/tablet app. Bring some photos that you wish to share with the world!
BYO: laptop, cables, or anything you need to upload your photos from computer/phone/tablet to Wikimedia Commons.
*For photos of recognisable faces/people please ensure that you have the subjects’ consent to publish their images on WikiCommons. See the WikiCommons’ Photographs of identifiable people guidelines. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Photographs_of_identifiable_people
