Your message to me said that album covers cannot be used here. Is this a new policy, or has is never been the case? I was under the impression that album covers and book covers can be used freely at Wikipedia. --Roland Longbow 08:24, 26 March 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Copyrighted images under fair use are allowed on some Wikipedias (for example English).
Commons allows only images that anybody could use for any purpose. This mean that copyrighted images could not be hosted here. Again, please read Commons:Licensing for details.

Hello, Roland Longbow!
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.
