The visitor gets to view images related to the topic from open repositories. She can open the image in the local image viewer or the original location. She can remove images that are not related to the topic, but then she must provide a reason, which will add info to the image. She can add the image to a collection, edit the metadata, identify people, places and time in an image. An image which is acted upon is registered in the database and made available for metadata editing and eventually upload to Wikimedia Commons.
Images displayed are generally considered Free Cultural Works. It may be possible to display images with Creative Commons ND or NC restrictions, but they can not be enriched or used in any way.
Images module is different from the Gallery module, as the Images module focuses on single images, whereas galleries contain items.
- 1 Image search
- 2 Choice of main image
- 3 Image grid
- 4 Curating – gamified tasks
- 5 Browsing the images
- 6 Module toolbar
- 7 Image
- 8 Navigation
- The search result is an image
- The subject is the creator of the image (or the work depicted in the image)
- The subject is a location of the image
- The subject location is the location of the image
- The subject is the topic of the image
- Images from the Wikimedia Commons category of the item
- Flickr images with a keyword search
- ~geographic_facet:"Place name"
- ~author_facet:"Author name"
- The search now produces 20 images from each repository. They are not ordered.
- The ordering should be enhanced. Data from the services about popularity, amount of use...?
- pdf (at least for the main image)
- Signatures, flags, sounds etc. could be filtered out and displayed in the header section instead
- Location maps are problematic as well
- Non-free could possibly be displayed but they could not be reused, or they could be filtered out altogether.
Textual search term
- The languages of the repository could be saved as the search languages, in the Wikibase
- The search term will include the administrative unit, if it is stated in the Wikidata item
- Add Wikimedia Commons subcategories
Choice of main image
- Image P18 in the Wikidata item
- Main image in one of the related Wikipedia articles
- The first image in the images listing, not a pdf
- The result set is displayed in a justified view. Use the Flickr grid code available for Vue here? The script requires the image dimensions to be known to produce the grid. Can we get any of this info in the API results or must we wait until we have the images loaded?
- 60vh and two rows of images are displayed and more can be viewed (by scrolling horizontally or by querying more images gradually).
- Possibility to open a separate Images discovery window for browsing images in a full page window.
- Rephoto and original photograph are displayed as a pair.
- Adding images via an action in the Images toolbar Actions menu. > Add image tool / modal?
Curating – gamified tasks
- Grouping – Select a group of photos that were shot at the same occasion (could be automatically suggested by exif data?)
- Record common disambiguation items and tag those images – "Different from".
- Identify portraits (without computer vision)
- Tag images as good header image
Browsing the images
Image browser will be used to enrich media metadata and prepare for Structured Data for Commons. See an html mockup.

Images can be filtered based on their properties. Initially everything is selected. Selections filter out content. UI for selecting has not been fully developed. Unselected may be dimmed or selected may be highlighted. It must be possible to make several choices. There must be a way to see the full selection of properties. Reset by section may be needed. Number of images by facet is needed. Sorting uses the same controls, and is attached to only a few properties. Sorting by location means sorting by distance. Sorting by several criteria has not been defined.
The result set can be faceted and sorted.
