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"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

File:Templeborough Roman Fort visualised 3D flythrough - Rotherham.webm...
hi, nice image. hope you agree with my metadata cleanup. if you have only one image at a time, the old uploader will allow photograph template, and GWtoolset is the future, but not easy yet, i've been using Help:VisualFileChange.js to strip off the information template wrapper, as a batch process without using a bot, but it takes some tweaking. cheers Slowking4♡Farmbrough's revenge 16:35, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
- Hi Slowking4. Thanks for tidying that one! I knew I'd miss something. We're all set to use GWToolset with the York Museums Trust collection but the files I needed weren't yet synchronised to the online collection! Soon we hope! Cheers, PatHadley (talk) 12:24, 6 August 2015 (UTC)
Anubis Mask from Harrogate
I'm amazed by the quality of your photography, especially those from GLAM! As I'm experimenting with Scalable Vector Graphics to see what it can do for Wikimedia, I'm creating a 3D object viewer and would like to use your Anubis mask from Harrogate. Would you happen to have a photograph taken from the rear but higher up? I could find all 8 cardinal directions at both elevations except for this shot.
- Hi @Cmglee:! That's a great reuse of the Anubis Mask images! Unfortunately, I didn't take the images, they were taken a few years ago for an education project (link). In a classic example of unfortunate digital preservation issues, the digital 3D model of the mask has now been lost and those were the only photos the curator could find on the system! Sorry that means there's a gap in your lovely interactive! Cheers, PatHadley (talk) 12:39, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!
You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth 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 (2015) 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. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
