This page details the image policy on the Webcomic Wiki, including the rules for uploading an image, including it on an article, and formatting it.
What images are allowed
Generally, the images placed on a web comic page should be a cover or a single panel that illustrates what the comic is about. For webcomic websites, logos also work.
- Images must be appropriate for all ages. Images cannot have any swear words, violent actions, or sexual dialogue.
- PNG and JPG files are best for the wiki, as GIFs and other formats do not load on certain browsers.
- Images should be less than 250 pixels length and height, but larger than 25 pixels.
- Image names must be descriptive, succinct, and grammatically correct.
- For example, the cover of a comic called Gorilla Gumption: Going Bananas:
- Not descriptive: File:Image.png
- Too long: File:Gorilla_Gumption_Going_Bananas_Cover.png
- Better: File:GorillaGumption.png

- Whenever you upload an image, be sure to use the correct image copyright tag as well as an image attribution template. Those templates let a creator know how their image is being used and how to take it down if they do not want it on the wiki.
- All images on the Webcomic Wiki should be of images accessible for free. If you had to pay to get to the original image, then posting it on the wiki violates the creator's copyright.
- If a creator has clearly said they don't want their image posted on the wiki, then do not include it.

- Any photos of real-life people or of personal information are prohibited on this wiki, even if the subject has expressed their permission or uploaded it him or herself.
- Full webcomic pages are not allowed on the wiki except for covers. This wiki is not a web comic hosting site.
- Advertisements are prohibited.
