Re. Category Changes[edit]

Hi! Categories on the Commons have a tree-like structure. Generally speaking, if an image is in a category further down the tree, it is not necessary to put it in any of the parent categories. Thanks, —JeremyA 02:22, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Re: Size of images[edit]

Hi! I think that the sizes of the images that you have uploaded so far have been fine. Many users of the commons like to encourage uploads at as high a resolution as possible. For the most part, I have resized my own images so that the largest dimension is 1024 pixels before uploading them, but I have been uploading larger images more recently. —JeremyA 01:52, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Re: Location Maps of Scotland[edit]

Hi there, to move the black dot just download the Hr image to your computer and open it with an image editing program. Then you can either "select" the area of the black dot and drag it to the location you want or just erase the dot and place a new one where you need it. Then just save with a suitable name, upload and add it to the location map category. I don't know what image editing program you are using but The GIMP is a nice free one which can do most thinks (windows installer here) - the additional benefit of using the gimp is that you can download the xcf map which will open with the dot preselected and ready to move to where you need it. I don't know your level of skill so feel free to ask if you have any problems with the process, SFC9394 21:42, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

user page[edit]

Hiho, just a small hint regarding your Commons user page: Maybe you want to make links like the following?
Eachuisge, Kelpie;
Amhuinnsuidhe Castle has no article yet, but a usable image here on Commons ;-)
You can make readable interwiki links easily with the syntax [[:en:Kelpie|Kelpie]] (note the colon at the beginning).

… I first wondered what Eachuisge could be, but found the nice article about it on de.wikipedia then :-) --Überraschungsbilder 19:00, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

Kitten[edit]

Hiho, you can easily look this up by typing the file name at Special:Log, see here (note: this is only possible for uploads after December 2005; before that, there was another kind of log). The reason for deletion obviously was that the author does not allow commercial use, so the image has to be regarded as 'unfree'. I hope you'll find another image to replace the deleted one with. Alternatively one could ask the author (see [8]) personally, if he would like to release this specific image under a free license – one has to find the image on his website first to ask him ... and I don't have a clue what the deleted photo looks like :-/ --Überraschungsbilder 01:17, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading Image:N18_with_drascombe.jpg. I notice the image page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you have not created this media yourself then you need to argue that we have the right to use the media on Wikimedia Commons (see copyright tagging below). If you have not created the media yourself then you should also specify where you found it, i.e., in most cases link to the website where you got it, and the terms of use for content from that page. If the content is a derivative of a copyrighted work, you need to supply the names and a licence of the original authors as well.

If the media also doesn't have a copyright tag, then you must also add one.

Thank-you for noticing the problem. I believe I have fixed it, and here are the relevant facts as I understand them. The photograph was taken by the owner of the boat on the right and I have his permission to use the image on Commons (and indeed he has seen it there). The individual concerned is not a professional photographer and doesn't have a website. It is in effect a holiday snap. If you think anything else needs to be done please let me know. W. L.

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, W. L. Tarbert!

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.
