Please tag images
Thank you for providing images to the Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on the Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:
- Describe what it is about in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
- State the author and the date of creation. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikipedia user, link to the person's local user page.
- If you did not create the file yourself, state the source you got it from.
- Add a copyright tag - images without an appropriate license tag will be deleted.
- Add the image to one or more gallery pages and/or appropriate categories, so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use CommonsSense.
If you copied the file from another wiki, please copy all information given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki.
Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be deleted. For more information, follow the Commons:First steps guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the Help desk. Thank you.--Panther 13:40, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Imagens sem origem
Indicou uma licença. A licença indica que a foto a fizo voçê, mas é preciso que, se é assim, o especifique escrevendo eu sou o autor (self made). O motivo é que muitos usuários põem uma licença ao azar, pelo que se exige indicar com clareza a origem da imagem.
Se a imagem não é sua, coloque uma hiperligação ao lugar da origem ou indique onde aparece para poder comprovar que a licença que coloca é adequada. Se têm alguma dificuldade, não duvide em comunicar comigo. Saudações--Lmbuga gl, pt, es: contacta comigo 15:04, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

|Image deletion warning||Image:Casaemcasa.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 image, 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. If the file is up for deletion because it has been superseded by a superior derivative of your work, consider the notion that although the file may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new file.
