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").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.

Permission to use figure in a book.
Hi I am working with Prof. Steven LaValle to help obtain permissions for borrowing figures or pictures in his upcoming book Virtual Reality, to be published by Cambridge University Press. The book is online here:
We are hoping to include the picture of yours (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/Dcel-halfedge-connectivity.svg) in this book (Chapter 3, Figure 3.3). Could we please have your permission for this? Thank you.
- Hello Adam! The current license for that image (see the page for that image) already grants anyone the right to include it in books etc. under a few conditions. You can use https://www.lizenzhinweisgenerator.de/?lang=en to easily generate a proper text snippet. Please use "Nico Korn" as the author instead of "Accountalive". Another thing: if you can, please convince Prof. LaValle to use the PNG or SVG version of the image to avoid those absolutely unnecessary JPG-compression artifacts. Have a nice day! --Accountalive (talk) 19:47, 22 January 2017 (UTC)
