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").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.

A barnstar for you!Edit
|The Photographer's Barnstar|
My name is Edoardo Bit, I am an architect and also a “young researcher” of the University of Ferarra (Italy).
I am writing a book on the “green walls technologies” and I have found very interesting a photo in your page. So, I would kindly ask you if I can use it in my book.
Obviously, if you gently decide to grant me the permission, your name (or your nickname) and the link of the picture will be correctly cited in the credits of my publication.
My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Amos - could you add a location for File:NuthatchThreat122713.jpg, please? It seems likely that White-breasted Nuthatch will be split into 3 species in the future (ref), and knowing the location is important for distinguishing which species is involved. Thanks! - MPF (talk) 18:25, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
