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.

Please help translating this page!

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

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

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)

Images for the new main category Category:Pictograms on thingsEdit

I have created a new category Category:Pictograms on things for images of pictograms applied on things in everyday life or special/professional applications. A few examples out of many millions in the world: Play-Symbol (Arrow) on CD/DVD/BluRay/MP3 Players, washing symbols in garment, symbols on all switches/knobs in cars, etc. Surprisingly, there were only categories for the depictions of those pictograms themselves (purely), but not for those applied in 'real life'. I made about 10 sub categories already and filled in a lot of files both newly taken by me and cropped from existing files, but there are about 99.9 % of all those existing pictograms still missing (joking). So I want to encourage to take photographs of such pictograms - which is both interesting and surprising, once you see that these little symbols are present virtually everywhere. New sub categories also very welcome, of course. Pittigrilli (talk) 09:06, 24 June 2021 (UTC)

Degrassi actorsEdit

I am looking for freely licensed photographs of the following Degrassi actors:

And better quality images of these actors:

I have gone around attempting to ask other people, including actors involved in the franchise and other image copyright holders, but have either received no response, or a blunt denial of permission. If anyone has been at a public event and taken photos of these actors and are willing to upload them freely licensed that would be greatly appreciated. ToQ100gou (talk) 08:33, 1 July 2021 (UTC)

Clifton Urban ForestEdit

Hey there, I'm looking for a picture of the Clifton Urban Forest, an urban forest currently being planted and built at Clifton, Karachi. Could someone kindly get a photo of it (preferably with the rows of saplings in the photograph)? Thanks. RealKnockout (talk) 22:38, 10 July 2021 (UTC)


Hi everyone. Could somebody find an image of Dogor that can be uploaded here? I tried to find one with a free license, but I was out of luck. Maybe someone with more experience will be able to find it.

There used to be a photo on commons (File:W6ODPAAVAII6VAGW2DFHABZHH4.jpg) but it was removed because it was missing permission.

Thank you in advance!

Susan TolskyEdit

Hey everyone! I could use some help. I would really like to include a photo of the actress Susan Tolsky in her article. I'm not at all experienced with all this public domain stuff. Could this one be used? It has no copyright markings on the back and it was taken in 1972 or 1973. I would really appreciate some help, thanks! PancakeMistake (talk) 11:56, 16 August 2021 (UTC)

Quite possible that it can be used. Ruslik (talk) 07:39, 26 August 2021 (UTC)

Michael Wincott, Bob Gunton, and David DastmalchianEdit

Notable actors Michael Wincott, Bob Gunton, and rising star David Dastmalchian need photos for their respective articles. I've done my best to search, but I cannot find any under acceptable licenses.. Edit: I did find a high school photo of Bob Gunton (, which is more than likely Public Domain, from where he attended Mater Dei High in Santa Ana, California, but I can't find the specific yearbook it's from for free online. StrangeloveFan101 (talk) 05:31, 25 August 2021 (UTC)

Derich Berck by Hans Holbein from Google Arts and CultureEdit

Hi. Google Arts and Culture has a very high resolution version of the painting we have at a much lower resolution as File:Derich Berck, by Hans Holbein.jpg. I don't know how to download them, but many of these Google-scanned art pieces are on here at Category:Gigapixel images from the Google Art Project; if someone could get this painting at extremely high resolution onto Commons in the proper way that would be great (I would love to know how you're supposed to do this too please). Thanks, DemonDays64 (talk) 08:04, 30 August 2021 (UTC)

If you are on holiday in Yumurtalık could you take a picture of the construction of Emba Hunutlu power station?Edit

If you are nearby it would be great if you could take a picture of the only coal-fired power station under construction in Turkey and hopefully the last Chidgk1 (talk) 10:21, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

Request for photograph of Abel Landén's villa on Iso VasikkasaariEdit

The article w:Iso Vasikkasaari mentions "probably the most unusual building in Espoo", a private villa commissioned by banker Abel Landén, resembling a Greek temple to the god Poseidon. However neither the article or the Finnish article it was translated from contain any picture of this villa. There should be one to illustrate what is so unusual about this building.

The villa itself cannot be visited just like that as it's a private building on private property. An exterior photograph taken from a passing boat or ship will suffice just fine.

The coordinates for the island as a whole can be found in the article:

The villa itself is in the extreme northwestern corner:

Réunion hotspot animationEdit

I have come to read two articles in geophysics by Quanta Magazine each containing a great interactive animation of a geological structure accompanying the text, the respective wikipedia article for one of these structures has similar animation but not the article for the other one which contains only a image of a volcano but not of the relevant geological structure so an animation would greatly help illustrate that article.

Large low-shear-velocity provinces quanta magazine wikipedia
Réunion hotspot quanta magazine wikipedia (no animation)

-The animation for the Large low-shear-velocity provinces in wikipedia was uploaded by a user who hasn't been active since 2017

-The animation of the Réunion hotspot in quanta magazine was created with sketchfab

Boojum pattern on Helium-3Edit

The article Boojum (superfluidity) is about a visual pattern which arises in physics but contains no image and google only gives results related with boojums patterns in liquid crystals for which the article on them has plenty of images but I can't find one for Helium-3 (copyleft or copyright) which is as the text explain where term was coined, the closest is reference 3 by David Mermin which contains some drawings.

Tsunami deposit photographEdit

Hi there. I'd like a picture of a Tsunami deposit (sometimes called Tsunamiite). Thanks. Mateussf (talk) 22:17, 3 October 2021 (UTC)

Picture of a well hatch on a shipEdit

Hello! I am looking for a picture similar to shown in this article. The picture is taken on a wellship / live fish carrier. The picture is showing the well hatch / well cover.

Thanks! Vasmar1 | Marius Vassnes (talk) 12:01, 10 October 2021 (UTC)

Hello @Vasmar1. I may be able to work up a line illustration for this. Is there a particular article or context where you would like it to be included? Do you need something that shows just the hatch, or something that illustrates the location of the hatch in a vessel? Red Roan (talk) 01:57, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Hello @Red Roan. Thanks for getting in touch with me. I was looking for a picture similar to what was shown in the article i linked to, for an article on the nowiki. The picture was going to be used as an illustration of a well hatch, because the article mentions something about an accident that occurred on one of the vessels, where a crew member died because of a failure in the hatch's hydraulics. I needed the picture for this and this article, however it would be useful for other articles as well, as there are many missing pictures related to the wellship / fish carrier industry on commons. Thanks! Vasmar1 | Marius Vassnes (talk) 11:52, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Thank you for clarifying, @Vasmar1. I will work up a technical line drawing of one of the hydraulically operated well hatches shown in the photo. I realize it may not be exactly what you were looking for. Whether it enhances the particular wiki articles you had in mind or not, we can at least have one such illustration on hand. This will take a few days. I will reply with a link to the drawing in this thread when I'm done. Red Roan (talk) 05:35, 9 January 2022 (UTC)
Hello again @Vasmar1. Please see this illustration:, and please let me know what you think. Thanks again. Red Roan (talk) 07:42, 11 January 2022 (UTC)
Wow! This is great! I will use this in the Rostein article, and the norwegian article about wellships ,that i am currently working on. Thanks! Vasmar1 | Marius Vassnes (talk) 09:58, 11 January 2022 (UTC)
@Vasmar1 Great! I'm glad this image can help. For your information, I just updated it to include a white background so it will be more clear in the full-size view. Thanks again. Red Roan (talk) 15:07, 11 January 2022 (UTC)

Jack Hadley Black History Museum, Thomasville, GeorgiaEdit

I'd like a usable pic of this place for WP-use [1], please. Just the sign like at [2] would work, but I'd like to see more of the building. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 11:25, 24 October 2021 (UTC)

Alina ButaevaEdit

We have forty pictures of this figure skater, not one of which actually shows her skating. It would be nice to have one. Brianjd (talk) 11:05, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Cate FlemingEdit

Another figure skater with plenty of pictures, but no picture of her actually skating. Can we get one? Brianjd (talk) 11:09, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Footballers' new photosEdit

Some of the articles about footballers have old pictures of them and I request new photos for footballers like Jesus Vallejo, Andriy Lunin, Eder Militao, etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by YBE11 (talk • contribs) 08:18, 11 December 2021‎ (UTC)

Arterial line, insertedEdit

I was unable to find any free-license photos of a properly inserted arterial line, such as here. The Wikipedia page on the topic itself only shows the catheters. Lrkrol (talk) 15:23, 20 December 2021 (UTC)

Hello Lrkrol. Please take a look at this illustration and add it to the relevant Wikipedia page if appropriate: Red Roan (talk) 15:11, 7 January 2022 (UTC)
Hello again @Lrkrol. Please see my previous reply in this thread. (I forgot to @ you.) Red Roan (talk) 01:55, 8 January 2022 (UTC)
Thanks, @Red Roan! It looks good to me, although it is rather flat: the figure could be interpreted as if the whole catheter is stuck to the skin, just like (and even below) the dressing. Would it be possible to make this clearer, perhaps more 3D? Lrkrol (talk) 10:51, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
Hello @Lrkrol. I just uploaded a PNG alternative with a bit more shading and detail, particularly around where the needle enters the skin. Please let me know what you think. Red Roan (talk) 22:03, 10 January 2022 (UTC)
Thanks again @Red Roan, that looks very good. I have added it to the Wikipedia page linked earlier, and will be using it in my lecture next semester on blood pressure measurements. Could you still make the PNG background transparent, and perhaps crop the negative space from the top and bottom? Lrkrol (talk) 13:13, 13 January 2022 (UTC)
Great @Lrkrol! I'm glad this image can be of use. I just updated it with the requested changes. Please let me know if I can do anything else for this. Red Roan (talk) 21:08, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

Small detail: the part that enters the skin should just be transparent tubing; the illustration makes it look like the needle is still present, this is only used for the punction and then removed. —-WS (talk) 20:07, 31 January 2022 (UTC)

Working on it now. Will have it updated within the next couple of days. Red Roan (talk) 20:00, 5 February 2022 (UTC)
Updated file at so the tube coming from arm looks like an actual tube and not the needle. Red Roan (talk) 23:32, 5 February 2022 (UTC)

Better quality of The Music Man posterEdit

Hello! I uploaded File:The Music Man poster, 1957.jpg which I am pretty confident is PD to replace enwiki's photo and it's not horrific but it is still pretty compressed and has a watermark, both of which I imperfectly have tried to clean up a bit. I am wondering if anyone can find a better scan of the poster? Thanks! DemonDays64 (talk) 02:06, 1 January 2022 (UTC) (please ping on reply)

  • @DemonDays64: Hi! I am trying to restore your image using certain techniques, so I have a couple of questions for you:
    • Were the lines on the poster originally "broken", or they need to be full?
    • Are there any points on the original poster that were lost by the compression?

Answer if you are able, and sorry for any grammar mistakes in questions - english is not my native language.

Best regards, Dimljacic (talk) 20:55, 16 January 2022 (UTC)

Finnish Continuation War commemorative medalsEdit

I've been working through the Finnish army corps of the en:Continuation War (see e.g. en:Finnish III Corps (Continuation War) and en:Finnish VI Corps (Continuation War)). As far as I can tell, these units did not have dedicated shoulder patches (such as those used by e.g. en:X Corps (United States)) which makes it difficult to find good imagery for the infoboxes. What these corps have, instead, are commemorative crosses such as the Aunuksen risti of the VI Corps (as shown in this CC-BY-ND image) or the Pohjois-Vienan risti of the III Corps (shown in this CC-BY-ND image). Since the no derivatives licenses prevent me from using these otherwise excellent images, I'm asking for help in sourcing Commons-compatible versions. Further non-free references can be browsed on e.g. this website. Thanks, -Ljleppan (talk) 09:17, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

Jesenice (Dugi Rat)Edit

Good evening, I'd like to request a photo of Jesenice in Croatia. It's a quite big tourist resort, but there are absolutely no free domain photos anywhere. It's located in Dugi Rat municipality between Split and Omiš - this area is really poor for any pictures, as you can see in neighboring resorts Dugi Rat and Duće. But they at least have some pictures; Jesenice doesn't have any. Here is the location. I would be really grateful if you had any picture from this area. Moson81 (talk) 17:55, 4 January 2022 (UTC)

I've requested Flickr user Linda 2409, she was really kind and gave me a permission to use this file. Therefore, this file request is solved. Moson81 (talk) 16:45, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

The New Waiting Room Picture of Ogyu Station (荻生駅) and Higashi Yatsuo (東八尾駅) in Toyama Prefecture (富山県), JapanEdit

It seems that Ogyu Station has been request for nearly 3 years but still no one can take or find a CC photo of the new Station/platform house.

Also the reconstruction of Higashi Yatsuo Station's waiting room has been done for 3 years and again no any updated.

Highway Shields for the Lincoln Alexander Parkway and Red Hill Valley Parkway in Hamilton, ONEdit

If anyone with graphic design skills could recreate the highway shield for the Linc and RHVP in Hamilton, Ontario, that would be greatly appreciated as that would enhance their respective Wikipedia pages greatly.

This coming COMICON Toronto; need photographs of Degrassi High guestsEdit

Hello! I edit a lot of pages related to the show Degrassi High. A few of the actors could do with better infobox images on their pages, and it happens that three of them are to appear at the upcoming COMICON in Toronto on March 19th; Pat Mastroianni, Stacie Mistysyn and Amanda Stepto. I've been looking for higher quality and updated images for these guys for months, so would somebody on this site who is already going with a camera be able to photograph these guys at the panel?

Women engaged in oil wrestling?Edit

Hello, it looks like (Turkish) oil wrestling is also practiced by women, and there are female competitions. To illustrate the fact it would be nice to get an image of female oil wrestlers in the typical outfit. Note: I am not talking about the erotically-inclined showfights showing women in bikinis, or nude women wrestling. I really mean women in the typical combat dresses (which resemble one-piece swimsuits). -Eptalon (talk) 19:45, 20 March 2022 (UTC)

Images at EOLEdit

This refers to images (photos and illustrations) at EOL (Encyclopedia of Life) I don't understand their license conditions. Please could someone kindly check if an upload might be possible and if yes upload the images at the following pages:

Some are microphotographies and some are illustrations/drawings. I'm just translating en:Mastigamoeba into german lang. However there are only a few illustrations available currently, no photos. I'd like to add new images to the en article also after upload. Thanks in advance! --Ernsts (talk) 05:44, 2 April 2022 (UTC)

Ernsts, hello. Unfortunately all the images you linked are licensed under {{Cc-by-nc}} licences. These licences are not compatible with Wikimedia Commons and can't be uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. Hulged (talk) 06:23, 2 April 2022 (UTC)
@Hulged: Thanks for the answer anyway! I'm stll working on the article and found that a lot many figures in current illustrations are doubtful members of the genus and there is still need for further images. So I looked for other sources that may contain images usable for wikimedia commons. I found the following candidates (I'd like extract the relevant parts by myself later :-) ):

Puffball skirtEdit

wikt:puffball skirt (possibly synonymous with "bubble skirt"). There might be images of this already, but none have that label. 19:35, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Bladed stance (martial arts)Edit

wikt:bladed stance. Could not find any image with that label. 20:50, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Bemaraha woolly lemurEdit

Bemaraha woolly lemur. 20:58, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Acacia catenulataEdit

Acacia catenulata, vernacular name bendee. A tree commonly found in Queensland, Australia. 21:01, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

It's painful that iNaturalist has several licensed as CC BY-ND/NC but nothing libre. 08:52, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

Margaritaria nobilisEdit

Margaritaria nobilis, vernacular name bastard hogberry. We have one image of this, File:Margaritaria nobilis.jpg, but it would be good if we could find more. (I'm not trying to be too critical, but the lighting could be better.) 21:33, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

On iNaturalist, the only freely licensed images are [3], [4], and the others from the same set as the one we already have: [5]. Also, the first one has both "CC BY" and "All rights reserved". I'm not sure what the uploader's intention was. 08:40, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

can I speak to the manager haircutEdit

wikt:can I speak to the manager haircut. The description on Wiktionary is "a layered, asymmetrical bob with blond highlights". The closest I could find is File:Short blonde hair with highlights.jpg. This may be adequate for a rough depiction, but if you look up the term on DuckDuckGo or Google, the hairstyle being referred to seems slightly different, but I am far from an expert on hairstyles. If my nitpicky perception is wrong, or if no more precise image can be found, then I'd happily default to that other one since it's pretty close, as I said. 21:47, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, that seems to be a synonym. Thank you. :) 23:37, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

cedar closetEdit

wikt:cedar closet. Nothing relevant with this label on Commons. 22:16, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Possible photo: I guess this is a decent cedar closet picture. 15:24, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

chain binderEdit

wikt:chain binder. Searching on DuckDuckGo or Google reveals that this is a very particularly shaped object. 22:25, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Possible lead: If this is PD, then Figure 2-4 in [6] is a good photo of a ratchet chain binder. I also found an illustration of what I believe to be a lever chain binder (the other main type) in [7]. 15:26, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

caulking ironEdit

wikt:caulking iron. Once more, a specific tool with a particular identifiable shape (based on DDG and Google results). All I found here was File:Kalfatrevaektoej.jpg. Based on the other images I found online, the caulking iron is the small triangular object inside the box. I'm not trying to be too picky, but the photo is not ideal for illustrating the tool because of the framing/resolution of the caulking iron within the larger scene, and the lack of contrast. 22:34, 9 April 2022 (UTC)

Never mind, there are good photos already: File:Musée d'histoire de Nantes - 497 - Burin à calfater.jpg, File:Kalfateisen.jpg. Although if we wanted to upload yet another, [8] is one (not as distinctly triangular at the tip, but I believe it is the same type of tool). 19:47, 14 April 2022 (UTC)
The photos requested were already available, one additional from Museums Victoria has been added - File:Caulking iron.jpg.

chef's kissEdit

wikt:chef's kiss. File:Chef icon.svg is pretty good, and I'll default to using that in the absence of anything better. But an image where the fingers are closer to the lips would be ideal. That seems to be what you get when searching on Google or DuckDuckGo. Without that aspect, it's pretty much just the basic OK symbol. 00:41, 10 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:brouilleur. Note that I'm referring to the English term for a bowl-like device related to absinthe, not the French word for "jammer" which brings up images like File:Jammersprocom-jammer-b97-2.jpg on Google. 00:58, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

Brachiaria ramosaEdit

Brachiaria ramosa, vernacular name browntop millet. Apparently a common crop in South Asia. 01:03, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

  • Possible lead: Photos with CC BY license on iNaturalist: [9]. Note that Urochloa ramosa is the same species, per [10] and various other sources. 08:45, 14 April 2022 (UTC)


Citrumelo, wikt:citrumelo, X Citroncirus spp. Searching for "Citroncirus" does bring some illustrations up, but I think these are for citranges which are a distinct cross per Citrus taxonomy. 01:30, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

conduit benderEdit

wikt:conduit bender. There appear to be two meanings for this, although Wiktionary only has the first currently:

  1. A tool with a thin handle: [11]
  2. A bulky object on wheels: [12]

I don't know what if anything the connection between these tools is. Currently, we only have one image with the tag "conduit bender", File:Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant Immobilized Cell Bioreactor Area (12795582483).jpg, which is referring to the second meaning. It's not a bad photo, although the angle and framing may not be ideal for illustrating the concept. We have nothing for the first sense AFAICT. 01:59, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

Wait, immediately after posting this I realized that in the existing Commons photo there is actually a very long lever, although it's not too prominent due to the perspective (it extends away from the camera). So maybe this is the sense Wiktionary is referencing. Or maybe this is the conduit that is being bent, not a distinct lever. Note that in the operation of the object #1 the conduit is placed similarly: [13]. So, reconsidering, I think Wiktionary's sense is still #1 as that object involves a lever/handle and a conduit, but I could be wrong. 02:03, 10 April 2022 (UTC)
Possible leads (for #1): [14] (seems fine), [15] (shows its use, but one cannot discern the tool itself as well). 07:52, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

desktop mascotEdit

wikt:desktop mascot. Might be difficult to find something existing that's not copyrighted, since the phenomenon generally involves the use of anime characters. But maybe someone can make one of Wikipe-tan. Reminds me of BonziBuddy... 04:07, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

Disney pointEdit

wikt:Disney point. Note that we have Category:Pointing and even Category:Palm pointing, and this is a similar gesture. I also looked through Category:Two-finger gestures. This photo has the right general finger placement, but better examples could be found/produced (and the description indicates that the intended context was quite, uh, different). 04:25, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

donkey stoolEdit

wikt:donkey stool, also known as a 'drawing bench' and various other terms. I think this is something like [16], not [17]. 04:39, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

Not ideal, but there's a 1975 patent for "artist's horse" which may be in the public domain per {{PD-US-patent}}, and this has an illustration: [18], [19]. The illustrations in these patents may be even better, but I don't know whether they're PD: [20], [21].
It's surprisingly hard to find a free photo of the object, even though there are lots of non-free ones. 19:47, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Aplatophis chauliodusEdit

Aplatophis chauliodus, vernacular name fangtooth snake-eel. 15:53, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

finish nailEdit

wikt:finish nail, also known as 'finishing nail'. A specific type of nail (fastener). Home Depot explains: [22]. 17:36, 10 April 2022 (UTC)

Figure 161 here at least illustrates the concept, but I'd prefer a photo. 15:55, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

flooring nailerEdit

wikt:flooring nailer. Tool. This is a specific subcategory of Category:Nail guns that seems different from the photos currently listed, cf. Google Images. 21:06, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Not ideal, but this 1966 patent has an illustration that seems to be the same tool: [23] (note the angle and how they describe it as "particularly adapted for use in the nailing of hardwood flooring"). 20:14, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

fudge wheelEdit

wikt:fudge wheel. Shoemakers' tool (cf. Google Images). 23:55, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

wikt:gyrogonite. I'm aware of the files that already mention this, but I think more illustrative pictures would be ideal. 06:33, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

half-up half-downEdit

wikt:half-up half-down. Hairstyle. 23:27, 14 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:hoverhand. There's one photo with this label already, File:Hummingbird Project 10 (31026355598).jpg, but maybe something with a more obvious gap would illustrate the idea better. 00:05, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Can this be considered a "hoverhand" File:Two Women Pose (35871168511).jpg? howdy.carabao 🌱🐃🌱 (talk) 04:16, 2 May 2022 (UTC)
User:howdy.carabao, I like it. Thanks. 23:36, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

inbox, in-trayEdit

wikt:inbox, wikt:in-tray. "A container in which papers to be dealt with are put." Apparently someone tried looking for a good image of this in 2019 but was unable to find anything. Compare Google Images. 01:15, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Pixabay from before 2019: [25]. Flickr has some possibilities too. 22:08, 20 May 2022 (UTC)


w:da:drømmekage, wikt:drømmekage. A specific kind of Danish cake. 02:55, 15 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:gajol. A specific brand of Danish licorice. We have a photo of the packaging, but an image of the licorice itself is desired. 02:57, 15 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:بركان#Etymology 2, wikt:barracan. A specific thick fabric popular in the Middle East. Originally, but not always nowadays, made of camel wool. 03:31, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Aquilaria malaccensis (agarwood) seedsEdit

wikt:قرنوة‎. 03:41, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Hlawga (Burmese boat)Edit

wikt:လှော်ကား. This may be a long shot, since I'm not even able to find non-free images, but I'm sure some representation of it exists somewhere. I'd like confirmation that the boat depicted is a hlawga, since there are various other kinds of ornamented ancient Burmese boats. 04:21, 15 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:spænde ben. Based on the usage example at talking about how it is unsportsmanlike for athletes to do it, intentional tripping may be intended. I saw Category:Tripping but only one of the images really illustrates this action, namely this one, and that is kind of grainy and not of optimal quality (but if nothing better is found, I'd happily use it). I'm surprised there aren't more photos of people tripping as it is a rather basic verb (whether by accident, or by someone else's malice as in the Danish verb). 05:01, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Mnemonic diagram (Japanese)Edit

wikt:みはじ. I think they're looking for a diagram like this. Should be possible to replicate from scratch even if no free copy exists already. 07:01, 15 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:anyżek. Polish cookie made from anise. 15:29, 15 April 2022 (UTC)


wikt:kinnikinnick. I believe sense 1 is requested. If you put "kinnikinnick herb" into Google Images you can see what it looks like. 22:43, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

LØREN,Alissic and Drop DeadEdit

Hi everyone. I'm currently working on an article about the South Korean musician LØREN on Wikipedia and I'd like to have some pics of him.

  • A pic from the Paris Fashion Week Show 2022
  • A pic from one of his songs (Empty Trash, Need or All My Friends Are Turning Blue - I would prefer one from All My Friends Are Turning Blue if it's possible)
  • Lastly, one pic of him while he is singing or playing guitar would be really useful.

Also, I'm writing an article about Brazilian musician Alissic. I do not have a specific image to request but any that is recent is OK. A specific one would be if there was a pic of her while she is singing. 3 I think are enough but as many as you can are welcome.

To conclude, for my future project, the logo of the brand Drop Dead and in one picture the symbols of the collections.

To be honest, I would do it on my own but I don't understand all the license things but if I did, I wouldn't have the time to do so. For any questions, you can ask me on my Talk Page on Wikipedia. Or, on my Commons Discussion, but I generally prefer Wikipedia's one because I log in there more often than Commons'. (if you upload something close to that, please inform me on my talk pages) Thank you in advance for everything. Fisforfenia (talk) 16:21, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

Jordan ClarkEdit

Hi! I need a photo of Jordan Clark. To differentiate her from the football player, she has big red hair 👩🏼‍🦰 Preferably a large(ish) headshot, something pretty and simple.

Looking for a good quality image of Putin "sporting" a Hitler (toothbrush) moustache. The purpose is to illustrate how the toothbrush is used in society. Examples include: [26][27][28][29]. It's OK if the magazine cover or advertisement is fake. Thanks. -- GreenC (talk) 15:35, 2 May 2022 (UTC)

Power Rangers commandEdit

I'd like to request an image of the Power Rangers Command. In reality it a building "House of the Book" designed by architect w:Sidney Eisenshtat located at the Brandeis-Bardin Institute of the AJU Los Angeles, which has appeared in w:Brandeis-Bardin_Institute#Filming_locationsvarious film and television productions. I think an image of this location could potentially be used in several articles. I found a Creative Commons licensed image at Flickr that might be suitable: If this file is acceptable I think uploaded page name should be House of the Book, ie no "the" prefix[31]. If not perhaps there are students from AJU active in the project and they might be willing to provide an image? Thanks in advance. -- 02:17, 1 July 2022 (UTC)

Tanner NovlanEdit


I would like to request an image to be uploaded of model and actor Tanner Novlan. I found that without an image of the actor, his main Wikipedia biography page as well as other articles are severely lacking and do not serve to inform the readers properly on what the content of those pages. An image of the actor would be added to many articles. I wonder if I could get some help in finding an image of the actor that adheres to Wikipedia licensing guidelines and copyright policies? The actor also recently attended the 61st Monte Carlo TV Festival, that occurred this past June, thus I was hoping that an image or a photographer who also attended the event may have uploaded a Creative Commons licensed image. If not from this event, any other image of the actor would be suitable. Thank you so much! — AwardShowFan123 (talk) 21:28, 2 July 2022 (UTC)
