Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Jonathan Cardy!

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.

Your deletion request of File:CIMG0747.JPG[edit]

No need to re-upload files, just add a {{rename}} template with the new suggested name. If you have already uploaded a new version then use the {{badname}} template on this file to let us know where the new copy is. Thanks :-) --Tony Wills (talk) 11:11, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Camden Passage isn't in Camden[edit]

I reverted your move of File:Camden Passage in 2009.jpg to Category:Camden Market. Camden Passage isn't in Camden. edward (talk) 22:56, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Sorry about that, I didn't realise there were two London markets called Camden. Jonathan Cardy (talk) 10:43, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Commons Autopatrolled.svg

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. Ben.MQ (talk) 05:28, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Ben, much appreciated. Jonathan Cardy (talk) 05:30, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for your work in categorizing some of the images I've uploaded here at Commons, including the Suffolk church pictures. Much appreciated. MarmadukePercy (talk) 01:26, 19 July 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the pictures, and for sharing them. I've really enjoyed going through them. Jonathan Cardy (talk) 07:45, 19 July 2011 (UTC)


Hello. I notice that some time ago you created a new category for Surbiton, which I welcome. I must have failed to check my watchlist for more than a month! You moved one of my Surbiton pictures into it and I have now moved the others. However, I see that there are several pictures of St Raphael's Church in it. This is not in Surbiton postal district and was never in the old Borough of Surbiton, although it is very much tied up with the history of Surbiton Park, an area which remained in Kingston after the split of 1855. It seems to me that Churches in Kingston upon Thames is the appropriate category. How do you feel about this? LynwoodF (talk) 10:45, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi LynwoodF, I'm sure your right. I'm no expert on that side of the river, but thanks for asking. Jonathan Cardy (talk) 22:23, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Hello again. Thank you for your friendly reply. I am not surprised you are not too sure where the boundaries are. There is no clear break and much of "Surbiton riverside", as people sometimes call it, is actually in Kingston. LynwoodF (talk) 22:53, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

St Michaels Anglican Cathedral Wollongong.jpg The St Michael's and All Angels' Gong
Dear Jonathan, I love you very much! You have put up a wonderful, straight-on picture of the East Window of Lincoln, much better than mine, and I am about to use it in the relevant articles. (having sorted out its perspective first. From the sublime to the minuscule: this little building is the Pro-Cathedral of Wollongong, seat of the Regional Bishop.

Georgian National Museum[edit]

Hi. It is a bit sad, that your images of objects of the museum nearly not usable. At first: a thank to the museum is fine - but not a description. But second: a description is the most important part between the image itself. We need to know, what is to see on the image. Of which culture is this "vessel"? Found where? Produced where? Material? The date don't work. In B.C. times first comes the 8, than the 6. It is not a "vessel", a vessel is an open shape. This is a jug. What is a Tamada? Which culture? Date? How someone should use the image without knowing, what is to see? It is sad, you made a lot of work , but in this way for nothing. So please give some more informations for your images! Marcus Cyron (talk) 19:52, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi Marcus, glad you like the images, some of the descriptions will go at the category level - the category for Tamada already existed and I think should answer your questions, others I have created. Part of my lack of descriptions has been due to a some mistakes in my photography that left me with some very out of focus shots of the museum descriptions, and I didn't want to add descriptions from memory but I have more info now including one of the books from the museum, so more info will be coming. As for whether the museum is correct to describe that object as a vessel rather than a jug, well Wiktionary defines vessel as "A container of liquid such as a glass, goblet, cup, bottle....." That object could be used as a small jug and poured from into cups, but it could also be used as a large cup and drunk from directly. So in this case I agree with the museum in describing it as a vessel as that word works for either, there are other descriptions where I doubt that the museum is correct, but other than obvious typos I won't put my opinions over their expertise.
