Tip: Categorizing images
Hello, Der Golem!
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").

Hi, I saw that you frequently upload pictures from flickr, and I was just wondering if you could upload this image to use in the artical. It is a image with "Some Rights Reserved" images. And I believe that you took this?
Thanks, great job! --18.104.22.168 20:09, 4 May 2012 (UTC)
