Tip: Categorizing 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.
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]]
When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

|File:ColinMorgan Island premiere Glasgow Sun20Feb2011.jpg has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.
If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
We keep communication on wiki so that others may follow discussions that take place. It may well be that the image is yours - I am certainly not implying that that is not the case. What I am saying is that - given it is elsewhere - it would be important to have proof of the proper sourcing of the file to protect the copyright holder. You will find that your camera automatically creates EXIF information when you take an image. This includes all the settings and the camera model. Such information is helpful in establishing the validity of the image (again protecting the copyright holder). I will alter the wording regarding the actor's website next. Be assured the image will not be deleted quickly as discussion is required and if you can upload the original image then that would be very helpful indeed. (I will see any comments here) Thanks --Herby talk thyme 14:04, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
