Hello, Francis McLloyd!
Tip: Add categories to your images

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:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

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]]
[[Category:Comets]]

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.

Had to convert text to paths (as with all the other versions). Here's the simple 3k file as it was before I converted to paths: AnonMoos (talk) 11:05, 10 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I hand-edited the SVG file to cut it down from 11k to 3k in size, and reposition and resize some of the text captions, resulting in the file listed above. However, this file would not display correctly here, since the "Georgia" font is not installed. So I then converted text to paths, which re-expanded the file from 3k to 39k...
