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.

I amelorated with Photoshop this picture since a very little photography (in an old newspaper) of my personal familial collection, scanned. I think this photography for the newspeper, is made around 1930 by one of my grand-uncles. No other one exists in the public domain !
Hi, this chart of the universe's composition is a useful idea but the figures for dark matter and dark energy are a little out-of-date, so they conflict with articles that use the chart...any chance you could update with more up-to-date figures from the latest WMAP analysis given in the "Parameters" section of wikipedia's Lambda-CDM model article? Also, do you remember where you got the breakdown of baryons into gas/stars/neutrinos/heavy elements? Would be useful to have a reference for that. 184.108.40.206 17:17, 5 December 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for the great images! Could you please add a length scale to each, in Mpc or Mly?

Hi, Dear Azcolvin429.
Could you make the .svg version of your images about earth place?
That will be good step to easy translation of your images.
Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2015 is open!Edit
You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2015 Picture of the Year contest.
Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2015 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the tenth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2015) to produce a single Picture of the Year.
Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.
There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1322 candidate images. There are 56 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category. In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.
Round 2 will end on 28 May 2016, 23:59:59 UTC.
