Hi, what you need to do is nothing deeper than "I made this picture myself" (with a half-million images of all sorts, we can't ever assume anything). The template {{GFDL-self}}, which you put in just by pasting in {{GFDL-self}} when editing the image page, takes care of both source and license. You can see an example of use on one of my uploads, Image:Greyia radlkoferi 3.jpg for instance. Stan Shebs 23:03, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Yes, scans from old books are fine, and are all in the public domain ("PD-old" tag). After all, if the scan is accurate, then the person doing the scanning has not added any creative material of their own... Stan Shebs 13:36, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Hi, Draco! I moved your plug photo requests for Israel and Thailand from Commons:Picture requests/Requests/Europe to Commons:Picture requests/Requests/Asia WhisperToMe (talk) 03:22, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I haven't seen that this part is dedicated to Europe. Draco flavus (talk) 08:37, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Draco flavus!

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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

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.
