ដើម្បីផ្ទុកឯកសារឡើង ដំបូងអ្នកត្រូវបង្កើតគណនីមួយនៅលើ Wikimedia Commons បន្ទាប់មកអ្នកត្រូវកត់ឈ្មោះចូល (log-in) ។
ប្រសិនបើអ្នកមានគណនីស្រាប់ហើយនៅលើគម្រោងវិគីមេឌាដទៃទៀត ឧទាហរណ៍ នៅវិគីភីឌា, នោះអ្នកនឹងត្រូវបានឡុកអិនទៅក្នុង Commons ដោយស្វ័យប្រវត្តិ បន្ទាប់ពីអ្នកបានឡុកអិននៅក្នុងវិគីដើម (home wiki) របស់អ្នក។ You also should be able to log in here using the same name and password. When not logged in to an account, by default a person edits instead by their IP address, assigned by their internet service provider (ISP). Nevertheless, creating an account is quick, free, and non-intrusive, and it is generally considered a good idea to do so for a variety of reasons.

If you create an account, you can pick a username provided it is available and unique. Edits you make while logged in will be assigned to that name. That means you will get full credit for your contributions in the page history (when not logged in, the edits are just assigned to your IP address). You can also view all your contributions by clicking the "My contributions" link, which is visible only when you are logged in.
You will have your own permanent user page where you can write a bit about yourself. While Wikimedia Commons is not a homepage provider, you can use this to display a few free pictures, write about your hobbies, etc. Many users use their user page to maintain a list of the pages they are most proud of, or to collect other valuable information from Wikimedia Commons.
You will have a permanent user talk page you can use to communicate with other users. You will be notified whenever someone writes a message on your talk page. If you choose to give an e-mail address, other users will be able to contact you by e-mail. This feature is anonymous; the user who emails you will not know your e-mail address.
Reputation and privacy
You do not need to reveal your offline identity, but having an account gives you a fixed Wikimedia Commons identity that other users will recognize. While we welcome anonymous contributions, logging in under a pseudonym lets you build trust and respect through a history of good edits. It is also easier to communicate and collaborate with an editor if we know who you are (at least, who you are on Wikimedia Commons). It is also easier for veteran users to assume good faith from new users who take the effort to create an account (and you may well become a veteran user yourself some day!). You may well be afforded a great deal less leeway if you do not go to the trouble of making up a username.
You are actually more anonymous (though more pseudonymous) logged in than you are as an "anonymous" editor, owing to the hiding of your IP address. You might want to consider various factors, including privacy and the possibility of offline harassment, when selecting a username.
The privacy implications of this vary, depending on the nature of your Internet Service Provider, local laws and regulations, and the nature and quantity of your edits to Wikimedia Commons. Be aware that Wikimedia Commons technologies and policies may change.
