Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
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.

|Pay attention to licensing
||Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content : images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose.
File:Kölnerlichter.jpg seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct. Please verify that you applied the correct license tag for this file.
If you believe this file has the correct license, please explain why on the file description page.
Would you be so kind to tell me what the difference is between licenses i have picked and the one that is supposed to be correct. My source for this was , which says "This file is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported, 2.5 Generic, 2.0 Generic and 1.0 Generic license." and the other, "more original" source says "This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Germany License.". So i guess you are saying whoever put it on wikivoyage-old.org already picked a wrong one...or the author decided to multi-license.. besides that i don't know, we can also just replace this with another free one (own work) with very similar content.
