Celsus articles may include photographs and other images. For information about managing images, see the detailed portion of the Help feature of this platform: click on the links in this order:
  • "Help" toward the upper right of the navigation bar at the bottom left of the page
  • "Editing a Page" and finally
  • "Adding Images and Uploading Files"

Format and Size


Images should be no larger than about 1/3 of the width of the article's page. See "Adding Images and Uploading Files" (see paragraph above) for information about adjusting the size. You can change the size in two ways:
  • In edit mode, click on the image to activate it and then click and drag on one of the corners to re-size it larger or, usually, smaller.
  • In edit mode, click on the image to activate it and you'll see a little dialog box, which provides two arrows you can use for the purpose of making the image larger or smaller.

Location


Images may accompany the text at any point. For consistency, images should receive right margin justification. To do this, click on the photo while in "edit" mode and it will activate the photo and make a little dialog box appear. Choose "right" alignment and it should align on the right side of the page. You can then click and drag it to its location to the right of relevant text: click as close to the upper left corner of the image as possible and drag it just to the right of the last word you want to see before the image box appears. The text after that point will reformat.

Captions


Captions can contain the following elements, separated by semi-colons, ending with a period:
  1. a brief description of the contents of the image
  2. the name of copyright holder or status
  3. a permission statement
Example: Newberry Library, main entrance; Copyright owner: The Newberry Library; Used by permission. Or
Abbey Public Library, children's department; photo credit: Abbey Public Library.

Copyright and Permissions


Contact the institutions for permission to post photos, if they are the copyright owners. Request contact information for others (photographers, architecture firms, etc.) if they are the copyright owners. Post a statement in the "Discussion" section (see the list of tabs at the top of each article) about the state of progress in determining copyright ownership or permissions. A standard form may be used to request permissions (coming soon...).

Wikimedia Commons has millions of images made available under the terms of the very flexible GNU Free Documentation License. Contributors may find appropriate photos or other images of libraries or other topics there, in which case it would not be necessary to request permission from copyright holders. A two-part caption would be attached to such images posted to Celsus articles:
  1. a brief description of the contents of the image
  2. a statement about the image source and license type

Example (using an image from Wikimedia Commons):

Example (using an image from flikr):

Additionally, link the photo to the original source. To do this:
1) While in editing mode, click on the photo and the dialog box appears.
2) Choose to link to an external source, paste the image's URL from the Wikimedia Commons (or similar) source, then save.
When a user clicks on the photo, it links directly to the site of origin (example: the photo of the Newberry Library, above).
