If you are a registered user, you can normally upload a file through Special:Upload, but it's disabled on Incubator. You have to upload it on Wikimedia Commons.

How to upload on Commons?

Here is it explained step by step:

  1. First register on Commons or log in (you might have been registered automatically via unified login already).
  2. Specify your interface language in your preferences for convenience.
  3. Go to Commons:Upload and follow the instructions. Experienced users can also use this tool.
  4. You can use all files from Commons here in the normal way under the same name.

Why is it disabled here?

Because of bug 11168! ;-)

There are several advantages:

  • You can use your image on every wiki of the Wikimedia Foundation.
    • It avoids having to re-upload missing files after importing all test wiki pages to the new site.
  • Commons is specifically for files. Consequently it has a better policy, etc. Incubator doesn't have any control on uploaded images.
