Welcome to the Gravity Falls Wiki's Image Guidelines section.

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

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.
  • Animations showing a single event from the show.
  • Fanart showing a single symbol used with the consent of the original maker, used where the manga/anime could did not provide a decent enough image.
  • File extensions: .JPG, .GIF, .PNG this is standard requirement for the wiki system and many file extension types (such as .BMP) are not uploadable.

Unacceptable

  • Fanart art of any form - from fan colour images to full character depictions, though there is one exception (see "Acceptable").
  • Doctored images of any form.
  • Images unrelated to this wikia, we're not an image host, sites like Flickr exist for this purpose.
  • Animations showing more then one event.
  • Watermarked images, these are claimed by an owner as their property and they may be offended if the image was taken without permission.
    • Note: TV, DVD and sub watermarks are excepted from this rule. However, no image taken from Youtube may be used.
  • Both porn and nudity.
