This page has the basic rules for using images on the Simple English Wiktionary.

Simple English Wiktionary does not allow images to be uploaded directly to this project. All images used on Simple English Wiktionary should come from a shared collection called "Wikimedia Commons". All of the images on the "Commons" are free to use anywhere in the world, which support Simple English Wiktionary's goal of being an easy-to-read and easy-to-translate dictionary.

If you have images that you would like to put on Wiktionary, you can do that by uploading them to Wikimedia Commons -- follow the instructions on Commons:First steps.

Using images on articles[change]

To learn how to put images on pages, see Help:How to use images.

  1. The best width for a picture is 250 pixels. Less than 150 pixels wide is too small.
  2. Do not say who took a photo in an entry. That information should be on the image description page only.
  3. Use a good caption - a full sentence that describes the image.
