Tip: Categorizing images
Hello, H2 Brad!
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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

|Wikimedia Commons does not accept derivative works of non-free works such as File:MEGO 1976 Batgorl.jpg. It only accepts free content, which is images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose. Reproductions of copyrighted works are also subject to the same copyright, and therefore this file must unfortunately be considered non-free. For more information, please read Commons:Derivative works and Commons:Freedom of panorama. You can ask questions about Commons policies in Commons:Help desk.
The file you added has been deleted. If you believe that this file was not a derivative work of a non-free work, you may request undeletion.
- Hi Brad, the relevant policy is COM:TOYS, Category:Action figures is eplicit in stating that pictures of action figures are derivative works, yes you own the toy and the copyright of the image you took, no one is denying that, but the creator of the figure holds the copyright to it, and when the company went bust these most likely reverted to DC or were sold on by the administrator for what they could. If you feel that this image has been wrongly deleted, I can undelete it if you wish and list it under a regular deletion review.--KTo288 (talk) 14:55, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
