Hello, Skb8721!

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:


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]]

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.

Svg image[edit]

It is in .svg format which I can't do otherwise I could fix. If it is just the fair use image at the English Wikipedia you could have someone in your graphics department upload a newer image to that file page: "Upload new version of this file" under the file history section. That will replace it in the article. The old one can be deleted then. Is it in use in other language wikipedias as well? I should be able to upload to those once I have a copy of the newer .svg file.--Canoe1967 (talk) 01:05, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

The file came from You may wish to contact them for an update fix as well.--Canoe1967 (talk) 01:15, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
I bought a bottle, took a picture, cropped it to logo, and uploaded to commons. It shows in the article now. Feel free to overwrite the image page with a better one in .jpg format. Scaled vector (.svg) files take a bit of work as they are created digitally from scratch usually. They also can't be uploaded to replace a .jpg file.--Canoe1967 (talk) 19:26, 22 February 2013 (UTC)
Thank you again, Canoe1967! --Skb8721 (talk) 16:37, 4 March 2013 (UTC)
You are very welcome. Penyulap actually did the work though. We tagged it as public domain because it was published before 1923 and the copyright has expired. This won't effect your trademark rights though because that is a different law. I live in Canada so I don't qualify for the free sauce giveaway but I have enough to last a while now. --Canoe1967 (talk) 18:22, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Please give images better names[edit]

I noticed you've uploaded File:41qXz2azF1L. UX250 .jpg and I thought I should draw your attention to a common error.

Please give uploaded images meaningful names. Otherwise they are difficult to track and it is hard to tell what the image is about without actually looking at it. I suggest you rename your image with an intuitive name that describes the image itself. Thanks, and happy editing!

Thanks for this note. I should have known better about naming the file, since I've been a Wikipedian for a while and the rules are the same. It looks like you already renamed the file. I will replace the image, however, with one without a border, per request from a bot (I think). Sincerely, --Skb8721 (talk) 19:52, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
