Tip: Categorizing images
Hello, The Land!
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.

Photo of Larry Sanger
Hi there, I am wondering why you think the photo of Larry Sanger is a better image than File:Actress Anna Unterberger-2.jpg. Just curious on your thoughts as to why you think it's a good idea to have photos that meta in this page. russavia (talk) 06:08, 3 November 2014 (UTC)
- Basically because the top two photos on that policy page are now of a (female) actress and a (female) model, which is an odd indication of the kind of photos of identifiable people that Commons has. I have only just appreciated that this is as a result of your switching out a photo of Jimmy Wales in a fundraising campaign for someone else! I'm not particularly tied to the Sanger photo but I do feel we shouldn't use two consecutive images of young, attractive women in the entertainment business to illustrate the policy.
