Hello, You can use [[en:name of the article]] (link in the left column) or [[:en:name of the article]] (inline). Regards, Yann (talk) 14:51, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

You link in the same way as if the image is local. You can't link to an image on Commons if an image with the same name already exists in a local Wikipedia. Yann (talk) 14:58, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello, Rsrikanth05!

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.

Here's how:

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]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

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.

Brigade Road War MemorialEdit

Hi Srikanth,

Is it possible to get images of each face inscribed in the Brigade Road War Memorial? What's written there is of great historical interest!

Will try. :) --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 05:58, 7 November 2010 (UTC)

Intentionally blurredEdit

Hello! Your file File:Kanakapura-Road-Thalaghattapura-Post.jpg is not intentionally blurred, else I would have moved it to Category:Intentionally_blurred_images. But you are right, it is questionable if this image is really that blurry for the non-intentional category, it's just just slightly out of focus. --Funfood 19:00, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

It isn't out of focus. It's clear enough. : ( --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 19:55, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Is there a rule that says so? --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 14:40, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology photosEdit

Hi Sri, You have changed the Hindi spelling of the word "Institute" from "संस्थान" to "संसथान" in my photos of RGIT. The correct spelling is "संस्थान". Please make corrections. Ref: http://swgiitkgp.in/images/iit_logo.gif Rohini (talk) 08:40, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me. I should go back to using Quillpad. The new Google is killing me. --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 08:57, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 AnnouncementEdit

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open!Edit

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth 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 (2013) 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 are all 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.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Animals and copyrightEdit

I know of no law in the UK that says animals can't hold copyrights, though my ignorance of the law does not mean the law does not exist.

My statement was based on multiple statements by Wikimedia editors and by the Wikipedia foundation that as copyright of an image belongs to the person who took the photo, and they assert both that a macaque ape is the "person who took the photo" rather than the wildlife photographer who set up the shot, and that in US law an animal such as an ape cannot hold copyright, the photos are public domain. I object to this: it seems merely a rather high-handed way of removing the legal ownership of the photos from the photographer, David Salter, and transferring the photos to Wikimedia.

Ahem, seriously @SeraphinaWinsham:, how much are you being to represent Slater? :D --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 18:20, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for uploading File:Music-2543389 1920.jpg. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the OTRS system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion. If you have uploaded other files, please confirm that you have provided the proper information for those files, too. If you have any questions about licenses please ask at Commons:Village pump/Copyright or see our help pages. Thank you.
