Example multiple upload screen

Instead of uploading files one-by-one, it's possible to upload multiple images at once. Admin may upload 20 images simultaneously, while non-admin have a limit of 10 images.

Any choices for licensing templates, categories, or descriptive text apply to all images that are being uploaded. If you're uploading many images that have the same license and categories, it can therefore be a huge time-saver.

How to use it?

Go to Special:MultipleUpload on your community. Click to find the files on your computer and then fill in the summary and licensing information. The licensing and summary will be the same for the entire batch of images. Files can be replaced though you will be warned similar to uploading the files individually.

By default, the files will upload to the same file name as they have on your computer, but you can change this manually if you wish.


When using multiple upload, the file upload size limit limits the total size of all the files combined rather than the size per individual file. The current limit is 10 MB for all of the files uploaded together. Thus, multiple upload is great for quickly uploading many small files, but not many large ones.
