Please see my comments on your several San Francisco graphs. I have delineated problems with those images, problems which are likely to be running throughout all of your city demographics images. Binksternet (talk) 17:49, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi, I want to point you on that article. Wikipedia software is able to create bar charts that everyone can edit. Please consider this while preparing data. Do Commons realy need bar chart images with data of one point of time like File:US15A009 Income.png? This file will be useless in a few years whereas a bar chart included in an article can be changed and corrected every time. --Martin H. (talk) 11:48, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for point bar chart article, i am creating this all chart using php, mysql, flash and java, so after programming (and creating main Flash file), its take very less time to create chart, i also show bar chart article, its take much time to create bar chart (at least first time when data and code added), and all this chart data based on census and census update every 10 years.
Tip: Categorizing 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.
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]]
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.
