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!

Please note the vehicle image gallery have very specific (and restrictive) requirements to ensure a consistent view over all vehicle articles. They are detailed here. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 22:24, December 19, 2017 (UTC)

Image naming

Your vehicle gallery images aren't bad but all have invalid names. If you want to keep helping contribute to the missing galleries, please see: GTA Wiki:Media Policy/HowTo#Naming. As a general rule of thumb, filenames should have 3 parts: Page Subject Name-GTA game version-Optional Description.png

If you look at other uploads, you will see the correct naming:

  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Underside.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Top.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Side.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-RearQuarter.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Rear.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Open.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Inside.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-FrontQuarter.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Front.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Engine.png
  • File:Ingot-GTAV-Dashboard.png

Please also note that png image format is preferred over jpg as they scale better when Fandom resize them for thumbnails. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 22:57, January 31, 2018 (UTC)

Current Design Galleries

Nice galleries! however, may I ask that you do not remove the CDG hidden notice, as some of your galleries lack some of the images required, so the notice still applies to users who may obtain these images in future. Thanks! Monk Talk 19:41, February 10, 2018 (UTC)

Car manufacturer logos

Hey. Although the logos that you uploaded have a great quality and look great, they souldn't be added to the articles of their respective manufacturers, as they aren't official. Logos obtained directly from the game files are the ones that should be used, regardless of their quality. Seems like you've spent a lot of time doing them, but I hope you understand. Thanks. – Ronalddmjunior (talk | contribs) 23:59, June 24, 2018 (UTC)

I disagree. Myself, SecretPower and many other contributors at VanillaWorks create high quality recreations of logos and although indirectly sourced from the game, if they are 100 percent accurate and do not mislead the reader, and aren't fanon, there shouldn't be a problem with having higher quality recreations. It's when decals are made up and aren't based on anything in-game that becomes an issue, or when an existing decal is manipulated in such a way that makes them inaccurate. Monk (Bureaucrat Bureaucrat) Talk 00:11, June 25, 2018 (UTC)


I have reverted the latest bunch of changes - the existing Company Logos are accurately obtained by former staff member Dodo8 and are the actual company logos that appear in game in advertising etc. Vehicle badges are not necessarily synonymous with a company logo.

As for the subjectivity of allowing so-called "high quality recreations" when there are in-game and game-file images available to accurately document the logos without it, that sets an extremely dangerous, policy-violating precedent for this wiki.

Image licences

Your last 2 San Andreas casino screenshots are missing licensing. Smurfy: illuminate - communicate - spectate 02:18, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

Hi, how did you got V-Rock satin jacket? I can't find any info about it, except your screenshot —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mxsch (talkcontribs) 20:26, 7 November 2018 (UTC) Please remember to sign your talk page messages with ~~~~.

Thank you!

These two GIF files were improperly named and did not include licenses. Please refer to the names as they are now to see how they should have been named, and ensure that you add the pertinent license in the future. Thank you.

Regarding an image that you uploaded

Good day, I wish to note that you made a minor error with the image name of this image: there should not be hyphens between the words in any particular section, as they are used to separate sections only. In this case, the description should be "FilterMachine", not "Filter-Machine" (I have fixed this for you). Secondly, may I ask where that particular machine is found? I do not recall seeing it before.

TAlim 1994 - Konan T-A Lim 林道安 (talk | contributions) 06:06, March 13, 2019 (UTC)


You still appear to be making the error that I mentioned above with this image. Please remember to only put hyphens between the sections defined in the Media Policy, leaving all other parts joined without spaces or hyphens.

Product Images and Logo needed

Hi there, I was just wondering if you can help me with these two additions:

  1. I just need a help from you to find images of product named "Ear Bleeds" from Sumo in GTA Online and images of the products it has which can be found at warehouses in GTA Online just like Tenshun and also the images of Fruit products next to it. And also if possible product images from warehouse for DeludamolPower Metal and others etc.
  2. The logo of Ratatat Drums which is a drumset manufacturing company featured in both Grand Theft Auto IV & Grand Theft Auto V. It could be a lot of help if you could provide it. Thank You!!! Steve316 (talk) 08:26, June 1, 2019 (UTC)

I see. I've just seen the logo forever and it's been changed, so I was curious if Rockstar retconned the logo to avoid copyright infringement or something. Either way, that piece of trivia should be deleted as well, since the logo really doesn't look like the UA logo. Thank you for clarifying. Call me "OliCoon" (talk) 15:20, July 11, 2019 (UTC)
