What is meant by the metadata source is indicated on the Template:Metadata page. In the example on the page, they say the source is either "private image or enter url of the source". There have been instances when I want to remember a bit more about how I created an image. In those cases I included a more detailed explanation. See my outlier image - click on the image to go to the page:

The description contains two links. Also note that I listed the source as "screencapture". I guess this implies private image, maybe I'll change it to "private image."

The only images that are recommended for wikieducator are those with open copyrights, CC-BY, CC-BY-SA, public domain, GNU Free Documentation License. Note that images with the Creative Commons NC indicator (meaning for non-commercial use only) should not be used in wikieducator. An explanation of "free content" is at What is free content. When I was learning about wikieducator a few months ago, I also went to the Creative Commons site to better understand these concepts.

There are a few websites with open copyright images. See the list at Wikieducator_tutorial/Images_and_Media/Tips for image sites that are searchable by keyword and copyright designation. I've used Flickr and Commons Wikimedia.

WE is also working on categorizing images. See the explanation at Category:Images. This is also a good place to look for images. Interestingly, I was uploading an image of visicalc (the first spreadsheet program) when it said the image already existed. Turns out it was the exact one from Commons Wikimedia that I was trying to upload. I hadn't thought to look first.

Lastly, I suggest naming images with very unique names. And if you see a notice that the one you are uploading is a duplicate, cancel your request and check out the image that already exists. If yours is different, then upload with a different name.

Yes, math is the same in all languages. And so are images. I'm glad you are braving the English language. I suspect that your English will get better the more work you do. Hope this explanation of images has been helpful.

Warm Regards, Alison
