Tip: Categorizing 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.
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.

Hi! Thank you for uploading to commons. License om Picasa does not match the one on Commons. If you are the photographer you can of course license it differently on Commons. However to be sure that you control both accounts can you change the license on Picasa or make an edit so we can verify that? Thank you. MGA73 (talk) 19:27, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Concernant l'INSA de Rennes
Bonjour Monsieur, apparament nous sommes en conflit concernant les images de l'INSA de Rennes. Je tiens à vous signaler que notre équipe est débutante sur wikipedia, et je vous rappelle que ces images nous apparitiennent. Au lieu de les supprimer constamant, pourriez vous au moins nous expliquer la démarche afin de les rendre "légales" à vos yeux. Cordialement.
PS: Avec ce genre de comportement, vous allez finir par dégouter les gens de participer au projet wikipédia.
