Image:Coriolis.mpg(cut here).jpg[edit]

Sadly, it is not possible to upload MPEG movies to WikiCommons, video must be Ogg Theora. See Commons:File types for allowed file types. The reason is, I believe, that MPEG is a proprietary format.

Also, since the University of Illinois do not allow commercial use of this video, it will have to be deleted. Thuresson 01:20, 23 July 2005 (UTC)

Ok, thanks[edit]

Image:San Francisco STS058-083-023.jpg[edit]

I have absolutely no idea if any better pic exists of the San Francisco Bay area, and I have no intention of searching the world for one. I leave that to you if you are set on featuring a pic of the area. All I know is that the composition of that pic is far from great. Whether or not it does, it appears to cut the Bay off, and offers no appropriate framing, real focus, or other intriguing aspect. I appreciate that it shows all the relevant areas in good detail and so on, but that does not, in my opinion, mean it should be featured, or the FP section would be inundated by pics of Earth from space.

Image:Vulva anatomy.jpg[edit]

Hi - thanks for providing images to the commons. I just noted this picture you uploaded - it's a good illustration, but the image quality is pretty bad (gray fuzz around black lines, etc). I guess this is because of the JPG compression - please provide drawings as PNG, or even better, as SVG. JPG is only good for fotos.

Also, please remember to put images into categories and/or gallery pages. That way, they can be found and used by others. I have added this picture to Category:Female genitalia. If you are not sure about the category, choose a more general one, such as Category:Anatomy.

Hi - thanks for your response. I'll try to explain a little about SVG (maybe i'll put this info on Commons:SVG in the a little while, these questions come up frequently). So, here goes:

  • SVG is not really a programming language but markup-language for graphics. It's for drawings what HTML is for text: instead of storing pixels, it stores shapes. For more information, see en:Scalable Vector Graphics.
  • The advantag is that because it stores shapes, it can be scalled at will without any loss, and it can be edited later much easily - you can just take shapes, move them around, change colors, etc. The files are also much smaller.
  • SVG files can be created and edited "by hand", as text files. But there are several graphics programs that support SVG directly. You can find a list of SVG viewers and editors at <http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/SVG-Implementations>. I can recommend InkScape (Linux) and SodiPodi (Linux/Windows). There are other editors for windows, but I have not tried them.
  • You may also want to look into OO-Draw (part of the OpenOffice suite, free software). It supports PNG (I think), PDF and also SVG (but rather badly, i'm told). The native format of OO-Draw is also accepted on the commons, but it can not be used as an image directly.
  • There is no good way to convert pixel-graphics to SVG. It's like trying to create HTML from a text you scanned: there are pixels, and the software has to guess what is meant by them. There are programs (called "tracers" or "vectorizers") that try to do this, but the results are often not what you expected. Re-Drawing is usually the better choice. (Note that bitmaps can be included in SVG images - but that does not help at all, it just puts a useless wrapper around the original file. This leads to confusion sometimes).
  • if you want to work with pixel graphics, please use JPG for fotos only - PNG is a good choice for draings (but SVG is better). MS Paint is one of the worst graphics programs out there - good alternatives would be The Gimp (free software), PaintShop (freeware) and PhotoShop (for money). All of those (and any serious graphics program) support PNG.

I hope I have clarified things a bit. And thanks again for providing images to the commons! -- Duesentrieb(?!) 20:08, 3 October 2005 (UTC)


I just found SVGMaker - it costs $50, and allows you to create SVG from many windows programs by providing a "Pseudo-Printer". This would not help you with Paint, but you could create SVG from a drawing created in MS-Word, etc. -- Duesentrieb(?!) 20:11, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

Excuse me, I need your opinion[edit]

Well, i said that because we can't find anything, probably is more educational something what gives us all names vulva, labiae minora/majora, clitoris, etc. But is only for that.

The another picture is now no useful, you see?? Now we can use this, and this is more educational.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Roger469!

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.
