This is a general guideline for image use on the Wiki
What Kind of Images To Use Edit
- Screen captures from installments of the franchise.
- Photos of the actors, crew or behind the scenes shots.
- Publicity photos
- DVD covers
- Movie posters, calendars or other publications
- Photographs of official TPB merchandise
The wiki will accept jpg, gif, png and (I think) bmp files, possibly more.
Can I Use Photos I Have Taken? Edit
Perhaps... provided they are a) relevant, b) in good taste and c) of good quality. Such photos will most likely be reviewed on a case by case basis.
Every photo should have a license attached to it at the upload stage. If you are not sure, use the Creative Commons Fair Use license and drop the admin a line and ask. This is an area that I am still learning about.
Using Images in Articles Edit
Photos used in articles should have captions, something short and appropriate will do.
Place images on the left hand side of the page, and anchor them to the beginnings of paragraphs.
A Correct Image Tag Edit
[[File:Vlcsnap-208570.png|thumb|left|Ricky and Julian get released from jail.]] After showing the last few minutes of the original pilot (black and white footage of Julian and Ricky starting a shootout in a public street), we see[[Julian]] and[[Ricky]] being released from prison.After showing the last few minutes of the original pilot (black and white footage of Julian and Ricky starting a shootout in a public street), we seeJulian andRicky being released from prison.
Note that the code phrasing goes File:filename.jpg|thumb|placement|caption'.
What Not To Do Edit
- upload or use images in articles that are not relevant
- upload poor quality images
- alter the size of the thumbnail in an article
