Thank you for uploading new content to the Image Comics Database project!
We have lots of images in our database, 7,579 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.
Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
As a guide, look what other images in a character's gallery are called, and continue with the same name and number. If you upload a first image of a character, use "[Name] [Universe] 001". We didn't always use Universe, so it's best to stay consistent with what existing characters use in your character line. Example: Spawn characters do not have a universe like "Al Simmons", while Chew does use a universe like "Anthony Chu (Chew)".
Issue covers should be given at least the title of the series, the volume and the number. A name similar to the issue is preferred: "Title Vol 1 1". Textless covers should be called "Title Vol 1 1 Textless". Files that do not indicate the issue number will be deleted.
Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
Selecting the proper license is vital to properly maintaining our images. Please choose the license which best describes the image you are uploading. The most commonly used are 'Comic Single Panel' and 'Comic Cover', respectively.
Other fields that should be filled in: Issue, Subject1, Artist. Add Source if you've taken it from a different site. If you've taken it from a different site and don't know the issue, DO NOT UPLOAD IT.
You're doing great and I would love to help you learn. I have recently had my first kid and find myself with little time to work on things, unfortunately. We need someone with a passion for Image to help take on editing or even over administration and I would love to help train those that can help carry the torch on.
Usually all the buttons for the templates are above the page in edit mode. So clicking edit on any page will show you what templates are available (for the most part). There is one for images if you click it. It's also proposed when you upload an image via "Contribute -> Add a Photo" on the upper right hand side of the screen.
I'd rather not give it up as I'd love to get back to reading Image. Unfortunately my tablet broke and that's the only way I can read them. I also had a kid so most of my free time has been absorbed by changing diapers and bottle feeding.
So while I don't need to go anywhere, I obviously haven't been able to help as much as I want. Brian is around too but he's taking a break from Image, he can answer questions too. So we can help you or anyone else that would have the passion to learn. You're welcome to ask as many questions as you want, just be aware the time intensive ones may not get answered just due to time right now. There's no commitment for required edits or anything like that, it's really just those who really want to improve image comic knowledge for others. No pressure.
