Information Quick help
Every uploaded file should have at least a brief description to facilitate finding it. When uploading a file please try to add such a description in the text area labeled ‘Summary’. A good naming rule for files is also to describe the “what”, “from whom” and optionally “when” e.g. “File:Zygiobia carpini Loew, 1874 on Carpinus betulus (Michal Maňas, 2006).jpg”. It is also possible to provide structured metadata in description fields: please read → Structured metadata for media files if you are able to support optimal media searches. You may also want to read the recommendations for image formats (JPG for photos, PNG for line/block drawings, SVG if you are technically able...) if you have questions about the most suitable format.

After uploading: To view or search previously uploaded files go to the list of uploaded files, (re)uploads are also logged in the upload log, deletions in the deletion log. To include a file in a page, use a link in one of the following forms:

  • [[File:Filename.jpg]] to use the full version of the file
  • [[File:Filename.png|200px|thumb|left|descriptive text]] to use a 200 pixel wide rendered image with a framed box at the left side with ‘descriptive text’ as caption
  • [[Media:Filename.ogg]] for directly linking to the file without displaying the file
