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.

Thanks for finding the photos of Samara on Flickr! I photographed the house last November, but I didn't have time to do anything except for a quick photograph from the street, so my picture is quite inferior to the ones you've found. Nyttend (talk) 19:44, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for catching my right-left error in the description of the photo of the Pavillion Hotel in Taylor, Nebraska. I copied the caption from a different photo of the building, and didn't catch the change. (My inability to match the terms "left" and "right" to the appropriate directions doesn't help, either—my friends are used to asking me "Which left?" when I give them directions.)
