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.

Hi! Mógłbyś pisać przy kwalifikacji pliku do zmiany nazwy coś w rodzaju "more descriptive name"? Ułatwiło by to mi pracę i byłoby jaśniejsze dla "non Polish speakers". Dziękuję za zrozumienie i pozdrawiam. Electron <Talk?> 13:37, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
Your given cause for a renaming was Change from completely meaningless names into suitable names, according to what the image displays. - this is completely untrue. The image name was completely valide. The photographer is a german, so the use of the german name is also in no way a problem. Against the will of the photographer we don't rename such images! And one thing more: I made an adminstrative decission. You can request a second opinion - no problem. I may be not right in what I've done. But you are not allowed to undo my decission! The next time I have to report this as vandalism! Marcus Cyron (talk) 13:34, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
