Please give images good descriptions[edit]

I noticed you've uploaded one or more images and I thought I should turn your attention to a common error.
Please give some thought to writing a good description of uploaded images. This ensures that they can be used. It also helps those that review and improve categories do a better job, which also ensures that images will get used in novel and interesting ways. Thanks, and happy editing! __ ABF __ ϑ 12:55, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Canley!

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.

sort of confused[edit]

Hi, while going through all the SLQ images, matching the old uploads with the new dataset, I've come across File:Robert Herbert.jpg, which is nearly the same as [1]. Did you retouch the image before uploading? If so, I think I should upload the SLQ image over that file, and then revert back to your revision. John Vandenberg (chat) 12:49, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Sure, do whatever you like. I don't remember retouching that image but I may have as there seems to be a scratch on the SLQ version which isn't on that one. --Canley (talk) 12:55, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
You did a good job of it. I've uploaded the probable original and reverted. Cheers, John Vandenberg (chat) 13:21, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Autopatrol given[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. 99of9 (talk) 01:20, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
