Tip: Categorizing imagesEdit
Hello, Tony in Devon!
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.

Hello, The issue is with the photo on the badge. Ideally we would need to know who is the photographer. Interesting problem. It is probably not old enough to be in the public domain, but we could ask for a free license, if we get more information. I can't find a copy of the same picture on Google, so it won't be easy to find its copyright status. Yann (talk) 21:20, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
