Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Ks0stm!

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.

Oklahoma tornadoe outbreak[edit]

Hi,

I've seen that you want to change the map used in the article about the may 3rd Oklahoma City tornadoes. I was wondering why you want to use a map that shows Kansas and Oklahoma, thus reducing the resolution on the important part around OKC. You probably want to shows the larger picture but I think that both images can be used in different parts of the article : the actual for the details around OKC and yours for the larger description. Pierre cb (talk) 12:13, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Sounds ok to me, I was just thinking that the larger one would give a better picture of all the tornadoes that occurred. Perhaps mine could be used in the summary and/or infobox and the smaller one in the Oklahoma section? I'll change the graphics lab request on WP to reflect this. Ks0stm (T) 14:48, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
OK. Maybe you can ask for a svg version of the original image too. Pierre cb (talk) 04:19, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

File:05june-dow7-wide.ogv[edit]

Shouldn't this be renamed to something like File:05june-dow7-wide.gif, seeing as it's not actually an Ogg Video like the extension implies? My browser kept trying to open it in a video player, which then couldn't figure out what to do with the animated GIF. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 11:17, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Is it an animated GIF? I couldn't tell because my computer didn't recognize the file all together...I had to open it in internet explorer. I just assumed that it was a video, but if it is an animated GIF, then yes, it probably should be named as such. Ks0stm (T) 18:35, 13 April 2010 (UTC)
OK, done. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 18:49, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

File:05june-rapiddow-wide.gif[edit]

Hi,

You have changed the File:05june-rapiddow-wide.ogv into File:05june-rapiddow-wide.gif. Originally it was a loop, now it is only a single image. It is possible to reload that GIF into an animated GIF ? Pierre cb (talk) 10:55, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

I renamed the file (see discussion above), since the filename suffix was incorrect. It's the exact same image.
The MediaWiki software was recently changed so that GIF images, including animations, are properly thumbnailed again. (Previously, everyone viewing any article this file was used in would've been made to download the entire unscaled 70 megabyte animation.) One side effect of that change was that one the first frame of very large GIF animations like this one is shown when they are thumbnailed.
One workaround would be to scale the animation yourself to the desired size and upload it under a different filename. This would also let you optimize it (using programs like GIFsicle) for faster downloading. Also, if you scaled it to 382×166 px or less, it would pass the current MediaWiki size limit for GIF scaling (which is 12.5 Mpx divided by the number of frames). Another possibility could be to convert the GIF animation into an actual Ogg Theora video. It would still not loop (but then, it's not really supposed to, anyway), but there would then be a button below the thumbnail allowing users to play the video. Also, I expect that the total file size would be a lot smaller.
Either way, if you need any help with the conversions, I'd be glad to assist. Just let me know on my talk page. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 17:56, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Adamite[edit]

We are together to learn and I hope that you will not take my comments wrong. The specimen is very poor but this is not the subject matters for IQ Avoid working with flash for minerals because of reflections, which gives overexposed areas often with chromatic aberrations. It is better to surround the specimen several LED lights and work in continuous light. If possible take photographs in RAW that will correct the CA and some areas overexposed. To label it is distorted upwards. Which must be taken strictly perpendicular or after the correct perspective. The best solution is to make a single photo for the label and make a montage. The background must be worked. A black background is the easiest mineralogy. Was always a pleasure to answer your questions --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 07:00, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

On a panoramic view like thate, one can assume that the poles are straight, and the buildings too. If you look at the center of the picture, there is a pole behind the green sign. This pole should be parallel to the vertical borders of the picture. Pleclown (talk) 06:44, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee
