Hi, Farry

I'm currently translating the above file into Afrikaans for the article about the solar systen and was wondering if you could remember which font you used for the names of the bodies? Some of the names needn't be translated and I can still use the first half of Mercurius (which means less time trying to smooth the grading the background near the sun).

My contribution was only to add the newest dwarf planets to the existing image. I identified the relevant font using the tool at [1] (but don't buy from them because they scam payments for free fonts as do most of the font sellers on the web). It was "Folio Bold Condensed BT" which I got free from [2]. The original size was approx 27pt at -50° rotation, but the labels of the dwarf planets at the bottom right looked as though they were at a shallower angle to my eyes due to an optical illusion, so I increased the angle for those to -55° which then looked OK to me. --Farry (talk) 12:26, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Farry!

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.
