Hello, Zupftom!

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:


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]]

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.

File:Wappen Andisleben.svg, File:Wappen Beckingen.svg[edit]

When you try to optimize SVG files, please take care not to make white areas incorrectly transparent. AnonMoos (talk) 14:22, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

You're right, I'm sorry. I should have known better. --Zupftom (talk) 19:52, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

File:Wappen Bierlingen.svg Your version somehow didn't work (not only at my computer, but others complained that the coats of arms "vanished", too). Hence I had to reset the file. I have no ieda how svg works, so I cannot do any more debugging. Especially, I don't know if this was a mistake within your file, or some Commons server error. --AndreasPraefcke (talk) 08:07, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
