At the bottom of the page are two buttons. One of these buttons must be clicked prior to sending the file. The file will not be sent unless one of these buttons are selected. If the image is a Family History Library acquisition, please click the bottom button. If the image or file is not a Family History Library acquisition, and the image is not copyrighted by anyone other than you, click the top button. The top button verifies that you take responsibility for submitting the image or file. Click Send File.
Your image file will now be sent to a computer for the Family Search wiki support staff. Upon receipt, an email will be automatically generated and sent back to you acknowledging the receipt. It will also give a Case ID number, but because the name of the image is not given, the Case ID number is not much help at this time.
It is a good idea to only send a few images at a time to the Family Search Research Wiki. It may take longer, but you will feel better about the process. Anything over a few and somehow your image files may be dropped from the system.
In about a day's time, another email will be sent from the Family Search wiki support staff. This email will either state that the image has been approved or will request additional information in order that it might be approved. In either case the official name of the image is given along with the Case ID number. If you have any further questions about this image for the support staff, use the name and the Case ID number.
An image file may be searched by name like any article on the Family Search Research Wiki. Type the keyword(s) into the search box and hit the Enter button. A list of article shows, but look to the left and hit the Multimedia link. Now a list of image files shows. Scroll down to the one you want and open it.
There are sections of the image file that a regular contributor cannot change. But the sections below the image file and above the "File History" can be edited. Add a "Summary" section explaining what your image shows. Then change the "License" section to include all the Categories where you feel your image maybe useful. After you save your image file, the actual categories will show up at the very bottom of the file. Check out a Category, the images are shown at the bottom.
