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.

- lieber leyo, sehe erst jetzt diesen eintrag, sorry. ich habe vier cameras und meine tochter hat drei und meine freundin zwei. das ist aber nicht alles. entsprechend der wiki-kriterien nutze ich für biografien auch mal fotos eines anderen ursprungs und lasse mir sie (schriftlich bestätigt) schenken. dann sind es meine! wenn das nicht gelingt (Aida Lorenz z.b. war von meiner bedingung enttäuscht) lade ich kein foto hoch. gruß --Joker.mg (talk) 21:00, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
- Danke für die Erklärung! --Leyo 07:19, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
Hallo Joker.mg, die Bildunterschrift von Image:Rain wagner.JPG und die EXIF-Daten des Bildes selbst legen weit auseinander (2010 vs. 2002). Stimmt die Bildbeschreibung nicht oder ging der Kalender deiner Kamera extrem falsch?--Hagman (talk) 13:18, 26 June 2012 (UTC)
- o.k., danke- wohl ganz falscher camera-automat, es ist 2010. gruß: mg
