Using media[edit]

Wikipedia articles aren't just text. There's also video, photographs, and illustrations.

Usually, that stuff lives on Wikimedia Commons. Commons is one of the largest collections of media files in the world, with millions of images. All of these images are under a "free license," which means you (and anyone else) can share them. You just have to follow certain rules.

This orientation will help you get started using and sharing media on Wikimedia Commons.
