Help:Submitting Images for ApprovalEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
| This help article will guide you as you edit in the Wiki. See Contributor Help for more help articles.|
Watch a video demonstration of how to add images to the wiki.
After finding an appropriate image that you want to add to the Wiki there are two possible routes to do this:
- with prior approval of the image (as described in this article), or
- without prior approval of the image (as described in Help:Uploading images and files).
This article will teach you how to get the image approved and uploaded. When the image is uploaded, it will not be added to an actual Wiki page, but rather in the image namespace, much like a storage space for the images or files. After submitting the image or file for approval, you will be notified that the image was uploaded. You will then need to insert the uploaded image into the Wiki page where you want it to appear.
| Step 1:|
Log in to Family Search Wiki.
| Step 5:
Click Browse and select the file from your computer for upload authorization.
| Step 6:
Select a Title of Image. It should be the same as the image. Include the approximate date the image was taken. Add a description of the image, including copyright or licensing details, microform numbers or call numbers, locations relevant to the image or where it was obtained, or other important details in the Description box.
