Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on 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 Wikimedia user, link to the person's local user page. Best to use CommonsHelper.
  • 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. Use CommonsHelper.

It is recommended to use Template:Information to put that information on the description page. Have a look at Template talk:Information for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file.

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.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Theoffice89!

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

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.

Your current uploads: Categorizing - "bad" and "good" example[edit]

Hi, please DO NOT categorize your pictures (an example of your a.m. uploads):

Category:Goa

Please spare time - yours and ours - by categorizing:

Category:Panaji (and/or for example Category:Education in Goa)

Please use as far as possible the category of the regarding city/town/village ;-)

Thank you for your assistance, Roland 13:10, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Category:Panaji Category: Churches in Goa _____________________________________________________________________________- and i added this outside the }} brackets


Category:Panaji
Category:Churches in Goa -> correct is: Category:Churches and convents of Goa 84.75.170.106 14:06, 11 October 2009 (UTC)


Is this correct?, Also under author, it says my name, but I want my name to be link to my Flickr page, not like how it is shown with an extra long link like http://www.flickr.com/photos/aaron-photoalbum/. How do you do this

Hi, if you would like to link to a category, it's absolutetly ok to use Category:xxx (i.e. ":Category:xxxx" ) inside the image description brackets, but don't forget to categorize images as (Goa) mentioned before. 84.75.170.106 14:06, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
