Images Edit

Please take a moment to read the image use policy. All images uploaded to MA need a proper image licensing template as well as citations. Images without an image licensing template or citation will be removed from articles and are subject to deletion. If you have any questions about how to add the requirements or why this needs to be done, feel free to ask. Also, until the Blu-ray/DVD release of Into Darkness, we need to be able to ID the source for any screenshot from the film to make sure it doesn't come from an illegal source. - Archduk3 20:33, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

The 2 ST:ID images are from Paramount. The other is from DVD still Star Trek 2009. Thamani (talk) 20:54, August 15, 2013 (UTC)Thamani

Thanks for the response. Images also need descriptions, citations, and categories before they can be re-added to the article. For the STID images, where exactly did you get them? Are they from a promo, website, interview, etc? - Archduk3 21:07, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

Can you please tell me how to add that information? When I try to edit it, it has the template, but it isn't editable. Thamani (talk) 22:01, August 15, 2013 (UTC)Thamani

File:Nyota Uhura, 2258.jpg contains this on the file description page:

{{alt|Nyota Uhura}} on the bridge of the {{USS|Enterprise|alternate reality}}. ({{film|11}})
{{image paramount}}
[[Category:Memory Alpha images (Humans)]]

Gennerally, you can just copy the format of a similar image already in use. In the case of an image containing both her and Spock, you would have to add a link to him using "{{alt|Spock}}" and "[[Category:Memory Alpha images (Vulcans)]]". STID would, of course, be {{film|12}}. Remember, citations, descriptions, and categories are all required, not just the copyright. - Archduk3 22:36, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. Hopefully, I have them all corrected now. Thamani (talk) 23:22, August 15, 2013 (UTC)Thamani

Everyything does seem to be in order now, thank you for correcting those. It would still be nice to know exactly where these are from though, as that information isn't really explained by promotional materials (since at this point all the images we have for that film should be from promotional materials). For example this image of Enterprise shuttle 1 is from the Sulu video at the website (which is now offline it seems). Since I uploaded the image I have to be able to provide that info on request if someone claims the image is from an illegal source. The only reasons that info isn't directly on the file description page is I'm here a lot and it's less work later when the image is updated with a better one when the Blu-ray comes out. Anyway, thanks for actually sticking around and adding the required info to your images, not many people do that. :) - Archduk3 23:43, August 15, 2013 (UTC)
