I googled this, but have not found any answer.

I created a pictogram for the kneipp_water_cure and want to upload it. Unfortunately I havent't found any upload site like it exists for wikipedia commons

You have two alternatives.

First one is to upload to our wiki:

  1. Log in
  2. click "Upload file" in the left menu - or use this link:
  3. read the info
  4. fill in the form
  5. upload

If you cannot see "Upload file", then your wiki account is too new. It must be at least 4 days old and have at least 10 edits.

Second alternative is to upload to Wikimedia Commons (needs an account there). You can use the image in our wiki pages like if it was uploaded in our wiki directly - see for more info.

Ah, thanks, the reason is, that I'm no autoconfirmed user yet. So there is no "file_upload" button and the link doesnt work. Bu at least I know why it isn't working.

@MaestroGlanz: Thanks for the feedback. You should be autoconfirmed in some days (see ). Possibly you can upload at Commons already.

You can add images to wikimedia commons and use them or upload them as a file (option LHS) to the OSM wiki

I'm not an autoconfirmed user yet. That's the problem. So there is no upload button for me.
