Color correction[edit]

Hi, I have used the free software "GIMP" to correct the color of your image. More precisely, I have opened your file with Gimp and use one of the options of the Color menu. In the French-language interface, one can use either "Luminosité/contraste" or "Courbes". I hope this will help. If you do not manage to do this yourself, I can do it, if you want.

Thank you very much. I think I got it figured out. And the software also helped me with some other image editing issues I've been having! Rlendog (talk) 18:36, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
I have seen your modified image Image:Mantled Howler Closeup - brightened.jpg. Why is it so small, compared to the original ? It is important to keep the images as big as possible. Can you overwrite it with a larger image, please ? Frédéric (talk) 16:02, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
I am not sure what I did wrong. Maybe I exported the small image to GIMP rather than the big image, and so it kept the small size. I'll see if I can fix that in the next few days. Rlendog (talk) 20:03, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Rlendog!

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.
