Images Licensing/Naming

Danger-icon
We kindly ask all of our contributors to please properly name and/or license all images that you upload to the wiki. Image licensing and naming is part of our official Media Policy, and as such, it is asked of all users to respect the policy and add a proper name & license when uploading as described here.

Licenses
Whenever you upload an image to the wiki, towards the bottom of the page there is an option to add a license.

  • For images that are game screenshots, use the appropriate Screenshots & in-game logos.
  • For non-game screenshots (pictures taken from the web etc.), select This image is used under Fair Use.
  • For images that are not licensed, e.g. images you have created from scratch yourself, select This is in the Public Domain.

Names
As a general rule of thumb, image names should follow the following pattern:

"PageSubjectName-GTAgame-OptionalDescription.png"

The name can be modified in the bar right above the "add license" option when you are uploading it, and must match with the Media Policy (a table of correct names can be seen here).

What you should do now
Because your recent upload was non-compliant, you are now expected to take steps to fix the issues with your file(s). There is a detailed tutorial on how to do this here.

If you have any questions about the policy, please use the dedicated section, or if you need assistance fixing your files, please contact me on my talk page or that of any other staff member.

Ignoring this message can lead to the file(s) you uploaded being deleted and possibly to a block if you continue to ignore the policy on subsequent uploads. For more information on licensing and copyright, see here.

Thank you!

If I have to be frank, you did try to comply with our Media Policy from the beginning, a rare sight coming from new editors these days. Keep up. :) NoirlimeTalk | Contribs 18:28, August 22, 2019 (UTC)

Brands

Please stop removing the gallery caption formatting I applied to most vehicle sponsor sections on branding pages. The format keeps things tidy, standardized and neatens up the gallery. Monk Talk 15:41, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

I have just spent 30 minutes cleaning up the Burger Shot article to find out you have added a single file link to the page, and as a result, conflicting my edits, given I just alerted you for removing content from the Gallery. Thank you for wasting my time. Monk Talk 16:01, September 14, 2019 (UTC)

Warning

Danger-icon
You have been warned for violating the policy. If you repeat your actions, you will be issued with a block.

• ­Given reason: Failing to license files even after reminder.

Block

Block-icon
You have been blocked for violating the policy.

• ­Given reason: Ignoring Staff messages and failing to comply to Media Policy
• ­Issued by: Noirlime4L (talk)
• ­Expires: 3 days

It pains me to say it, but eventually it had to come to this. When uploading photos, you also have to select licensing by clicking on the dropdown menu. I'm giving you a 3-day block to hopefully let you get a better understanding of our policies. You edits have been promising so far, I don't want this to discourage you from continuing to do so, thanks. NoirlimeTalk | Contribs

Forgive me for not being proficient in English and having little experiences in editing, leading to a lack of careful read of media policy and even ignored reminders at my talk page unitil now. I feel very sorry to cause these troubles that unnecessary, I didn't mean to do that. :( GTA Wiki helps me a lot, I truly hope I can make more contribitions for our community in the future. And thanks for gave a 3-day block that warned me, I'll pay attention next time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheS424 (talkcontribs) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.
Thank you for taking the time to look over the policy. As Noirlime already said, we don't want to discourage you from editing, especially since you're editing GTA Online content, a game quite a few regular editors are not particularly interested in. Also, I would kindly ask you to name any future Rockstar newswire vehicle image uploads as CarName-GTAO-Advert and not CarName-GTAO-Screenshot. This is not anything related to the Media Policy, but it would help with standardisation, thank you. Matrexpingvin (talk) 20:21, October 13, 2019 (UTC)
Sure, no problem. TheS424 (talk) 04:14, October 14, 2019 (UTC)

RGSC Images

So Rockstar is doing a makeover for their vehicle preview images on Social Club, followed with action shots. I appreciate the effort you're trying to put into with keeping them up-to-date on the wiki as well, but for now please upload them with separate names, for example
GauntletHellfire-GTAO-RGSC2.jpg
for the new preview image, and
GauntletHellfire-GTAO-RGSC3.jpg
for the action shot. Thank you. NoirlimeTalk | Contribs
OIC, OK. S-424 (talk) 12:27, December 13, 2019 (UTC)

Licences

Hey there, if you are uploading textures extracted from game files, please use the "This file is copyright to Rockstar Games" licence template {{Rockstar}}, not the {{Artwork}} licence you have been using. That licence also adds the image to the Artworks Category, and they aren't appropriate there. I know you're not the first/only one who has been doing it and I'll get onto the others too. Can I ask you to update your own files with the correct licence? Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 11:54, April 11, 2020 (UTC)

Oh, okay, I'll change the licences later, thanks for your reminder. S-424 (talk) 12:09, April 11, 2020 (UTC)
Thanks very much. I know there's probably quite a few you'll need to update. Sorry I haven't picked up on this sooner. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 12:11, April 11, 2020 (UTC)
That's alright, I will change the rest of 'em when I'm free.S-424 (talk) 12:25, April 11, 2020 (UTC)

RE: About the File Paths for the Clothing Logos

Hi, for all of the clothing item textures and/or logos you may be looking for, you will have to know what update the clothing item came from, since it will be located in that update's file. The directory should look something like this:

update > x64 > dlcpacks > (file of update with the clothing item or logo you're looking for) > dlc.rpf > x64 > models > cdimages

For shirts and pants, those will be under (update filename)_male.rpf or (update filename)_female.rpf, depending on whether you want male or female clothing. For most accessories like hats, glasses, and watches, those will be under (update filename)_male_p.rpf or (update filename)_female_p.rpf.

Then, if you go into the folder marked freemode, the files under "Texture dictionary" (Drawable dictionary are the models of the clothing) will be marked with prefixes telling what type of clothing it is:

  • lowr = bottoms
  • jbib = tops
  • feet = shoes
  • berd = masks
  • p_rwrist/p_lwrist = Bracelets & Watches
  • p_head = Hats
  • p_eyes = Glasses
  • p_ears = Earrings


TL;DR: Using import/export as an example, your entire directory should look like this:

update > x64 > dlcpacks > mpimportexport > dlc.rpf > x64 > models > cdimages > mpimportexport_male.rpf > mp_m_freemode_01_mp_m_importexport_01

Always glad to help!
