Wikimedia Commons is a repository of free images, videos, sounds and other multimedia files. Uploaded files can be used as local files by other projects on the Wikimedia servers, including Wikibooks, Wikinews, Wikipedia, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity, Wikivoyage, and Wiktionary. The InstantCommons feature also supports imports on other wikis.

This page is an index of all Wikimedia Commons' maintenance and Help pages. The following articles contain guidance and information about reading, authoring, and participating in the Commons community.

Avun saaminen:

  • If you have a general question about editing, uploading, the scope of the Wikimedia project, or anything else, you can post a question at the Help Desk and another user will reply.


The function of MediaWiki itself (the software of Wikimedia Commons) is described at the MediaWiki User's Guide in Meta-Wiki. If you suspect a software bug, ask for feedback at the village pump, and then report it using the Bugzilla bug report system. This is the only way to get MediaWiki developers to notice your bug reports.

The database of Wikimedia Commons can be downloaded. There is currently no dump of the media files available.
