Welcome to the Gravity Falls Wiki's Image Guidelines.

Please refer to the Gravity Falls Wiki Guidlines for more information.

Introduction

This page will answer many of your questions pertaining to images on this wikia. If you can not find your answer please ask an administrator.

Uploading Images

Format Advice

There isn't a general rule on which format use, but the JPG format is best suited for color images, since it's a web format meant to have a good quality/size ratio, while the PNG format can be used for black and white picture, since it provides high quality and doesn't increase so much the size for gray-scaled images.

Image Informations

When you upload an image on this wikia, please provide the necessary information on the file's page by creating different section, such as:

  • Summary: this is an optionally field where provide informations on the image and his meaning or his purpose.
  • Source: this information is important and helpful, so specify where the file comes from, for example which Volume/Chapter if a manga picture, which episode if an anime screenshot or which sites if you took it from internet.
  • Licensing: please provide the right license for each image.
  • Categorization: after you upload a file add the categories by the button at the bottom, creating a section it isn't necessary. If you don't know which category is right for the image, try to look other similar images.


Acceptable and Unacceptable Images?

Acceptable

  • Screenshots of a single frame from the show and Panoramic images.
