All your images in Commons & flickr[edit]

I've noticed that the Flickr images are tagged as Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 2.0 which isn't a free licence, and the images in commons are tagged as {{cc-by-sa-3.0}}.

I hope you're the same person who took the pictures, but to make sure, you should add a link in the Flickr page to your user page in commons, and also write some information in your user page, including a link to your flickr page.

Now I'd ask you to edit your your flickr profile, writing something like "My page in Commons - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Kuribo"
I guess you wouldn't like othrer people to upload your images to commons, but if you do, please write it in your flickr profile as well...

I changed licence of Flickr photos, and edited my Flickr profile.
Thank you for advising!--Kuribo 01:56, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Hello, Kuribo!

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").

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.
