I'm glad you joined! Commons is a free media repository, rather than an encyclopedia. We don't have articles here; we host images that can be used across other wikimedia projects and we have galleries instead of articles. On Wikipedia, if you upload an image it can only be used on the English wikipedia: however, an image uploaded here can be used by any-language wikipedia or other project (such as Wikispecies, Wikiquote, Wiktionary, Wikiversity, etc.). Any images you want to upload that are under a free license belong here so they can be used on other projects as well. However, Commons is not for fair use images; those should only be uploaded to the specific project they are used on. For info on what licenses we accept you can look at Commons:Licensing. If you have any more questions feel free to ask! -- Editor at Largetalk 13:07, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Nope. A lot of images uploaded to other wikimedia projects are fair use: for example, a CD cover is under a fairuse license. Basically the only licenses Commons accepts are those that fill these requirements:
  • Republication and distribution must be allowed
  • Publication of derivative work must be allowed
  • Commercial use of the work must be allowed
  • Acknowledgement of all authors/contributors of a work may be required.
  • Publication of derivative work under the same license may be required.
  • Use of open file formats free of digital restrictions management may be required.
Any image saying "For educational use only" or "fair use" or "for use on wikipedia only" are not permitted on Commons. Images like this are clearly "fair use" per the license tag, and images taged with licenses such as this are not allowed because they are not entirely "free" in the sense that they do not allow modification. For full details take a look at Commons:Licensing; it has comprehensive info. -- Editor at Largetalk 14:25, 11 April 2007 (UTC)


Hi Pizza1512, due to a discussion on German Wikipedia, I came across this picture which seems to be uploaded by you without permission of the photographer. Unfortunately, the license tag public domain is in my opinion not applicable.

Would you please check the book that you refer to as the source, what the citation in the book says about the photographer? We need his name and year of death to make sure that the picture is indeed in the public domain. If he has died less than 70 years ago, we would need permission from his heirs to publish the picture under a free license, it is only in the public domain if the photographer has died more than 70 years ago.

Here you will find further information concerning licensing.
