They explain how to customize the interface (for example the language), how to upload files and our basic licensing policy (Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content). You don't need technical skills in order to contribute here. Be bold contributing here and assume good faith for the intentions of others. This is a wiki — it is really easy.

Flickr2Commons and Crop ToolEdit
In the future, when uploading images from Flickr, I would suggest using Com:Flickr2Commons to upload them and then using Com:CropTool to crop them. That way, they will go through the automated Flickr Review process without as many issues. Also, please use more specific categories than Music, as well as the author's category, Category:Files from Justin Higuchi Flickr stream. Thanks, Elisfkc (talk) 19:02, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
- @Elisfkc:I tend to select individual files to suit the corresponding wiki article. To crop or remove the watermark I prefer to use image editing software for better results. I have added categories where they are applicable. Did not realise Higuchi had one and will add that in future. Thanks. Karst 22:51, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
