Welcome to File Requests

This page is a forum for requesting files from other Commons users for pages in Wikimedia projects, including Wikipedia articles. Recent sections with no replies for 180 days and sections tagged with {{section resolved|1=--~~~~}} may be archived; for old discussions, see the archives.

Adding a requestEdit

  • First, try to find a file on your own (see help on public domain image resources.)
  • For a file of a specific location, it may be possible to contact someone near to the location and request that they take a photo. The nearest photographer tool can help to locate users who are near to specific locations.
  • Link to a page where you want the image to be placed.
  • If possible, include an external link to a picture about the request.
  • Sign your request in case there are questions (use ~~~~).

Upload requested imageEdit

Conductor photosEdit

Hi. In my sandbox over on Wikipedia, I am working on an expansion of the Sibelius choral symphony Kullervo. Three conductors that were important to the piece's history are: 1) Jussi Jalas, in 1958; 2) Paavo Berglund, in 1970; and, Kenneth Schermerhorn, in 1979. At present, Wikimedia does not appear to have an image for Schermerhorn; and, the images of Jalas and or Berglund are not particularly good, in that they contain other individuals. Would it be possible for someone with experience in image hunting and licensing to undertake this project for me? Preferably, the images (if possible) would be somewhat close to the respective dates listed above. Thanks 2604:2D80:5902:C00:C109:28C1:8817:BA89 22:45, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Chicago L 7000 series trainEdit

I’m looking for a replacement for the image on 7000-series (CTA) which is a rendering and is non-free. As they are currently being tested in Chicago, there are lots of photos of it available online, however, I am not able to find one that has a free license.

As they are currently testing and not in revenue service, they can be testing on any line on any day. However, if you ever spot a 7000 series train (whether it is on a main track or stored at a rail yard), it will be helpful if you can take a picture of it to upload onto Commons. Thanks! -- 16:29, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Gare de MassonEdit

The former train station in Masson, Qc suffered a roof failure this past spring due to snow accumulation and will be demolished. It would be interesting to have someone document the final condition of the station for use on Wiki projects before the demolition takes place. See Oaktree b (talk) 14:34, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

Screenshot of the "b374k" web shellEdit

GitHub repository:

This PHP application is licensed under the MIT License, and this is planned to be used on the Wikipedia article Web shell to demonstrate what a web shell usually looks like.

Screenshot after you press the "quick run" button I believe. 2601:703:200:990:716F:88F8:F2DD:CB66 21:08, 30 May 2021 (UTC)


I would like to request an image of the logo for the company Sandvine. Preferably with "SANDVINE" written to the right, as seen on their website, but no text is also fine. I would like to use it in the infobox on this Wikipedia article. FreeToDisagree (talk) 12:54, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Hello, and thank you for your suggestions. I do speak swedish, however, that might be a bit out of my comfort zone. I will consider it though. FreeToDisagree (talk) 16:44, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Parliament Building (Quebec)Edit

The article on Wikipedia is in need of the following images:

  • Zoom on the the new entrance to the National Assembly of Quebec (post-2019);
  • Zoom on the fountain of Abenaki (fontaine des Abénaquis) after 2019. Note. The fountain is the one closest to the building, not the one on the roundabout of the Honoré-Mercier avenue, which is the one extensively photographed.

Thank you in advance. Szmenderowiecki (talk) 13:09, 6 June 2021 (UTC)

Photo of Bience GawanasEdit

[Gawanas] is a Namibian politician. I have no practice to organize photos and request therefore some help. Ressources with photos are:

Does it make sense to contact the United Nation? How could be the procedure? Is there anyone who can make a photo?

Thanks a lot in advance.--Weltenspringerin (talk) 15:40, 19 June 2021 (UTC)
