Do not template me[edit]

But please feel free to leave me a personal note. --TheFatManWhoNeverCameBack 23:13, 27 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

When uploading images it's important that you include categories and description, so that others may find and make use of your uploads. For useful links and such, see {{Please link images}}. Finn Rindahl 23:34, 27 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]
I thought I did that. But if I did it incorrectly or incompletely, can you give me a specific example of what more I should add? Thanks. --TheFatManWhoNeverCameBack 23:44, 27 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, I think I understand. I actually did categorize my first upload and place it a gallery. I did not do the same for my second upload because I realize the scan iteslf is covered in dust and debris. I kind of want to delete it and replace it later with a cleaner image. That's why I didn't apply any links to the image. --TheFatManWhoNeverCameBack 23:46, 27 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]
OK, looking forward to seeing a clearer image of those boats (with a category). Use Upload a new version of the file, bottom of the imagepage [1] when you're ready. Thanks, Finn Rindahl 00:16, 28 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Will do. But don't expect the boats to look any cleaer--it's intentionally a low-light, no-flash, long exposure. Supposed to be impresionistic (admittedly, I'm no artist). But it won't have all those dust spots. When I reupload it, I will add it to the rowboat and Portsmouth, New Hampshire categories.--TheFatManWhoNeverCameBack 00:23, 28 August 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, The Fat Man Who Never Came Back!
Tip: Add categories to your 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.

Here's how:

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]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.
