Hello. Could you please upload your version of File:4MeasuringSpoons.jpg under a different name? You can add something like "highlighted" to the name. I need to revert the existing file to its previous version as that is in use in several languages. I hope you understand, but if you have any questions, please let me know. Regards. Jonathunder (talk) 23:05, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I can definitely do that, sorry about that! I'm not using the computer that the file is on at the moment, but I'll be sure to do that soon. Sorry :) -Newyorkadam (talk) 23:21, 13 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam
Sorry, I'm pretty inexperienced on Commons-- do I make it a new version on the same image page, or just reupload entirely as a new image? If I reupload entirely, should I mention somewhere that you took the picture? -Newyorkadam (talk) 23:30, 13 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam
Go ahead and upload it like a brand new image, with a different name. After you do that, I can show you how to make a link to the existing image in the "derived from" area. Jonathunder (talk) 00:50, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok, I've uploaded the image under the name File:HighlightedTeaspoon.jpg. What do I do now? -Newyorkadam (talk) 04:51, 16 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam
If you look at this edit, you'll see I added a couple of templates that let me plug in who the original photographer was and what changes were made. In general, that's how you do it. Jonathunder (talk) 00:36, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
Ok, thanks for all of the help! :) Is this new image that I uploaded ok?-Newyorkadam (talk) 04:12, 17 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam

That's ok! I wasn't using it on any articles yet anyway. -Newyorkadam (talk) 23:22, 13 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam

Hi. Thank you for uploading File:Wmflabs Winter 1-20-14.png. :-) I cropped the image because I found the browser chrome to be distracting and possibly misleading. Someone may complain about the inclusion of the Wikipedia logo, though I personally think such complaints are petty and baseless. --MZMcBride (talk) 19:07, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi, that's ok :) -Newyorkadam (talk) 15:49, 27 January 2014 (UTC)Newyorkadam

Picture of the Year 2013 R2 Announcement[edit]

Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category have continued to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »
