Hello, Sky Harbor!

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.

File:Tangjiawan Station with trees.JPG[edit]

Just for info: File:Tangjiawan Station with trees.JPG: your link to "唐家湾火车站" seems to be dead. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 02:51, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

The article hasn't been created it. I'll probably create it later today. Thanks though for the heads-up. :) --Sky Harbor (talk) 04:48, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Ah! :-) Redlinking like in Wikipedia internally is a bit annoying if one does it from Commons - at least this is my opinion on it. But fine if you plan to create it soon. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 01:27, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Problem about map[edit]

Problem solved!

Hello, I have a problem about my new uploaded image. I cannot understand what is the problem. Can you help?

Photo Balkan (talk) 10:11, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Hmm...it seems that the image didn't render itself properly. What software did you use for this? --Sky Harbor (talk) 10:14, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Typical for CMYK jpegs. Only RGB color space works correctly in all browsers and with the Mediawiki scaling. We could simply resave the jpg in RGB mode and upload as a new version.
But I am sure you can also save in png (or some other lossless format and convert afterwards). jpg is only (rule of thumb) to be used for photographies. Can you export to png from your mapping program? Which one did you use? Please make a note of the program used in the file description - can be helpful to others. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 00:22, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

For this image I had used Adobe Photoshop and a bit CorelDRAW. I can convert it into RGB color mode, also I can convert it into PNG format. I thought converting PNG format but other same category images are JPEG format. So what will be the best choise? Converting RGB (JPEG) or PNG format? Photo Balkan (talk) 22:07, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

PNG (RGB) would be the best. But if possible do not convert the jpg file. Convert from your PS / CDR files since the jpg already includes compression artifacts. I tried converting your jpg to png and it was smaller despite the existing jpg artifacts - would be smaller if they were not present. Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 22:30, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Oh, very good. Now its OK. I converted it to RGB format but because of uploading, I didn't convert it to PNG (for using same name). Maybe I'll make another PNG image. Thanks a lot Saibo. Photo Balkan (talk) 23:53, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

File:Grace Poe delivering a privilege speech.jpg[edit]

Can you apply a US copyright tag to this image, as it is not clear how it is free in the US ? Thanks LGA talkedits 04:52, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi, LGA. Why does this need a US copyright tag? This is the only time I've been told that Philippine government images need US copyright tags as well, as it is presumed that foreign government works are also in the public domain in the United States. --Sky Harbor (talk) 04:58, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
In the same way as works of the US government are protected outside the US (see http://www.cendi.gov/publications/04-8copyright.html#317) is there anything to suggest Philippine government are not protected in the US ? LGA talkedits 05:23, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
