Tip: Categorizing images
Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.
1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:
2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.
- [[Category:Category name]]
For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:
- [[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

There seems to be a problem regarding the description and/or licensing of this particular file. It has been found that you've added in the image's description only a Template that's not a license and although it provides useful information about the image, it's not a valid license. Could you please resolve this problem, adding the license in the image linked above? You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file. This page may give you more hints on which license to choose. Thank you.

I had a concern with File:2011 Buick Regal 2.jpg -- a quick search turned up a higher-resolution version ( http://www.thedetroitbureau.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/2011-Buick-Regal-main.jpg ) than the one available on the linked Flickr source page, suggesting the Flickr uploader might not actually have permission to use it.
Do you have a way of confirming the image's legality for use at Wikimedia, or should it be nominated for deletion?
The flickr uploader is the the company Buick itself and these photos are provided to the press for use and uploaded to flickr by the company. Hopefully this is sufficient evidence of the uploader. If it helps here is the link to the users photostream on flickr  and here is the link to the photo 
Hope this helps aaaaplay (talk) 05:42, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
