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.

Eine Erlaubnis für den Wikipedia Artikel ist nicht ausreichend. Der Rechteinhaber muss zustimmen, dass Jeder die Datei verwenden darf zu jeder Zeit, für immer, und zu jedem Zweck einschließlich kommerzieller Zwecke unter einer freien Lizenz. --Martin H. (talk) 20:09, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
- Hallo Martin H., ich weiss jetzt nicht genau was ich machen soll :-( Ich hab' eine Email vom Marketing Manager der Warner Music Group (der hat mir das Bild zugesendet), dass ich dieses Bild für den Artikel verwenden kann. Was soll ich denn jetzt mit der Mail machen? Grüße --Ewald (talk) 22:54, 12 March 2010 (UTC)
- Wenn dir eine Freigabe entsprechend unserer Anforderungen erreichbar scheint, siehe Commons:Emailvorlagen#Einverständniserklärung, frag nochmal nach. Die bisherige Freigabe ist, soweit ich das beurteilen kann, aus genannten Gründen leider nicht ausreichend. --Martin H. (talk) 11:58, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
