Flickr images[edit]

I noticed that you uploaded another image of Lauren Barlow. There's an awesome upload bot called User:Flickr upload bot that I strongly advise you to use when you upload from flickr. You can have a bot do the uploading for you, it's REAL easy. You just need to click on "easily transfer images from Flickr" after selecting flickr from the upload menu.

The bot is designed for uploading the complete image without modification. You probably are already using the other flickr tool. Royalbroil 15:31, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, JamieS93!

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

Your Flickr reviewer request[edit]

Hello,

As a result of your request at Commons talk:Flickr images/reviewers, I have added you to the reviewers list. This means that you can start with reviewing Flickr images. I would like to ask you to be careful and not to review images you uploaded yourself.

Did you know that there is a nice script you can use to add two Flickrreview buttons to image pages? If you add the code below in your monobook.js and then reload your browser's cache, you will see two new links (or "buttons") on image pages, either at the top as so-called "tabs", or in the toolbox in the sidebar, one for a good review and one for a failed one.

importScript("User:Patstuart/Flickrreview.js");

Please see for more information the Commons:Flickr images/reviewers page, and add {{user trusted}} to your userpage. If you still need help or information feel free to come to my talkpage.

All the best,Huib talk 17:35, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! JamieS93 15:16, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
