Hi Jononmac46, please understand that you necessarily must categorize your images to make them findable for other users. See Commons:Categories. Keep in mind that pure uploading of images (without giving them categories) doesn't make any sense. Please don't produce data trash, categorize your images!

(That's unhelpfully rude, if true) Yes, Many thanks for these great images, and the articles you make using them, but please categorise them, or no-one will ever find them (except me). I suggest just adding one or two categories at the upload point, and further ones when the upload is finished, using the Cat-a-Lot tool (see your Preferences). I would also create a hidden category "Photos by Jononmac46", or sub-cats by date or location, which makes it easy to group them. All British Museum rooms have their own categories, which is an excellent start, and easy with the upload tool. Ideally many photos would go in about 5 categories, but by museum, by period/type of material and type of object will often cover the most important. Also I wish you would crop some a little tighter. This is really easy with the Crop tool. They appear so small on WP it's very important. I'm delighted to see someone else interested in ancient/medieval metalwork, & producing such excellent shots.

Hi Jononmac46. Please categorize your files that you has uploaded ! They are very good pictures. If you don't give a category to the file, it's like that they doesn't exist, because they are not visible. If you are not able to give the specific categories, then give at least a generic category, e.g. that of the Museum where the object is exposed. Thank you very much for your collaboration.
