Hello No scaled down dupes,

I noticed you've uploaded multiple images that differ only in size, and I thought I should draw your attention to a certain feature of our software. MediaWiki, the software which drives Commons and other projects like Wikipedia, is able to handle reducing the size of the images automatically. For example, even though File:Red Apple.jpg is a very large picture (2418 × 2192 pixel), MediaWiki can automatically generate thumbnails in all sizes (example: 50-pixel thumbnail). You can include a thumbnail of an image in a Wikipedia article using [[File:Red Apple.jpg|thumb|Description here]]! If you need it a bit smaller in width – for upright / portrait aspect ratio images – use [[File:Red Apple.jpg|thumb|upright|Description here]].

Thanks to this feature, you only need to upload the highest-resolution image you have available. That's why File:Example.jpg will be deleted soon, while your larger image will remain available for use and resizing. I also recommend reading the picture tutorial (you will find answer for nearly all your questions regarding use of images there). Thank you and happy uploading.
