Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Alvesgaspar!

Tip: Add categories to your 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.

Here's how:

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

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.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

question[edit]

Hi Alves, May I please ask you, if of course you have a time, take a look at this [1] and tell me, who in your opinion is the copyright holder of that map? Thank you for your time.--Mbz1 (talk) 16:48, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

FP discussion[edit]

I think you are basically right, FP is a little indulgence by people participating here, and the FP images and pages have little importance to the project apart from the enjoyment of the Commoners and as a source of pretty good images for our 'shop window'. What do you think of having FP categories by year which would allow us to keep that history but also highlight the improvements of technology (and perhaps skill ;-) ? --Tony Wills (talk) 02:15, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't say that 'FP images and pages have little importance to the project'. In many fields there was in the last two or three years a dramatic improvement in the quality of the available images due to the stimulus of FPC. Macrophotography, reproductions of old engravings and panoramas of both nature and urban themes are significant examples. Many of these are now part of WP's articles and other languages wikis. Other have appeared in important non-Wikimedia projects, lke Encyclopdia Britannica, and have been printed in numerous publications around the world (I have received several requests myself). As for organizing the FP galleries by year I think it is an unnecessary complication. I agree that all FP's should show the year of promotion in the template though. -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 08:36, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
Ok you think the improvement is due to FPC rather than QIC. Yes, I see what you mean with things like macro photography, the competition certainly drives people to put in more work. But apart from the relatively few people who actually enter the FPC competition, does it have much effect on the quality of the other 5 million photos here?
How do you think people go about finding our FPs ? That is: do you think they just use google etc to find a good image, or are they finding them in a wikipedia article, or are they coming to Commons and searching through the FP pages? Do any of the people inquiring after your images say where/how they found them?
Yes I would put the year on each FP promotion template. I would put each into a year category too so that a whole cohort can be seen together. No I wouldn't try to order FP galleries by date. The more contentious question is what to do with the FP galleries. If people do actually go there to find good images of the technical quality expected today, are we doing them a dis-service by giving them old, inferior images as well? If people seldom wade through FP galleries in the hope of finding what they want, but instead use search functions or categories, then perhaps it doesn't matter if the galleries contain a mixture. --Tony Wills (talk) 11:00, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Galleries[edit]

Hello,

Per Commons:Galleries, I do not see the point of Zicca : there is only one picture in Category:Zicca. Galeries are not meant to duplicate Categories.

Of course, this is not a rule of thumb : even if something like Orthetrum brunneum has the same content than the category, it does have a layout that brings relevant additional information. Hence, though I would have not created it myself, I find it perfectly fine.

But I do not the point of having a gallery with only one picture ? Jean-Fred (talk) 20:26, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Just working ahead. Very often gallery pages are not created for pure laziness. Yes, I could live with a rule limiting the display of pictures to either galleries or categories, but such rule will never be consensual -- Alvesgaspar (talk) 20:32, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
