Template:Image requested

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template is placed at the top of an article's talk page to request that someone take a photograph for an article or add an image (from another source) to an article.

It is not a general-purpose "no image present" indicator. Editors placing this template on a talk page should provide information about what photographs are wanted.

With "|small=yes" Parameter {{Image requested|small=yes}}

Explain your requestEdit

If the subject matter isn't perfectly obvious (such as an article about a physical object), please explain your request on the talk page. It is very helpful to give photographers your ideas, particularly for abstract ideas, such as legal and philosophical concepts.

If you have a specific idea for another image, then use the |of= parameter to name the specific picture that you would like. This is particularly helpful if there are already images in the article.

Unexplained and uncategorized templates may be deleted by any editor.


The template employs several optional data field parameters as described below.

{{Image requested


  • This template adds the article to Category:Articles needing pictures.
  • To avoid needlessly cluttering up talk pages, it is usually appropriate to remove any unused parameters from the template. A common initial configuration for the template includes the following basic parameters:
{{image requested| |of=|in=|in2=|in3=}}
