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.

Hi Ginge, please don't over-categorize your images. For instance in your File:AppleGreen.JPG
- Category:Apples is ok
- Category:Fruit is over-categorized since Category:Apples is already categorized with Category:Fruit.
Hi Ginge, don't you understand the meaning of over-categorizing? I wonder why you over-categorize again here. Btw, File:Sultanas2.JPG might better be categorized as raisins. -- Ies (talk) 15:44, 21 September 2010 (UTC)
Hi Les I uploaded a number of images at the same time so had not received your earlier message. BTW we call them sultanas here in Australia rather than raisins, hence the reason I called them sultanas. I did not even know they were the same thing until I read the article.
