The Upload Wizard can upload files directly from Flickr.

This feature was deployed on Wikimedia Commons in December 2012. It was originally accessible to administrators and image-reviewers, then to extended uploaders in 2017[1]. Since February 2019, it is accessible to autopatrolled users.


  • Allows uploads of individual files or whole Flickr albums (up to 50 images)
  • Commons filename choice:
    • Use filenames created from Flickr metadata by default
    • Upload Wizard allows to modify each name or specify single name and add automatic numbering
  • Categories, geolocations, date and description can be added individually or to the whole batch
  • Descriptions can be provided in multiple languages
