Hello, Uxbona!
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.

16th century Portuguese Spanish trade routes[edit]

Hello I've made some suggestions for the map you made about 16th century Spanish and Portuguese trade routes, you can check them out here. I hope you'll find them useful. Greetings, --Victor12fromWikipedia (talk) 14:29, 30 August 2011 (UTC)[reply]

a question about the map[edit]

Hi! I am a Master student of Uppsala University in Sweden and I am writing a paper on Portuguese identity. I found the map with Portuguese discoveries on wikipedia and you showed up as the creator of the image. Let me ask, did you create the map on your own? I would like to use it in my presentation, so I would need to provide the sources. Thanks!

Hi! Glad to ear that the map is helpful. I've compiled it by plotting the chronology of the Portuguese discoveries on a world map. My main source - one I found the most complete and helpful was Diffie, Bailey (1977). Foundations of the Portuguese Empire, 1415–1580. University of Minnesota Press. ISBN 0-8166-0782-6. For the territorial empire display I've used wikipedia's maps, and corrected it upon comments of fellow wikipedians (you can see the discussion here http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File_talk:Descobrimentos_e_explora%C3%A7%C3%B5es_portuguesesV2.png. Sorry for the late answer. Hope it can help. You can also see the chronology compiled and sourced here: http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cronologia_dos_descobrimentos_portugueses.--Uxbona (talk) 23:49, 29 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]
