This page is for uploading images and other media files to the English Wikipedia.
Are you uploading a free image or media file?
Please consider uploading it to the Wikimedia Commons.
Items uploaded to the Commons can be used on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects, helping to create a central repository of free images and multimedia.

- For experienced users
If you are familiar with our image policies and already know which license applies, you can go directly to the plain upload form.
You must be an autoconfirmed user logged in here on the English Wikipedia before you can upload files directly to this project. If the image you are attempting to upload is free content, please consider uploading it instead to the Wikimedia Commons as explained above; it can then be displayed directly on all Wikimedia projects, including here on the English Wikipedia. Alternatively, requests for image uploads can be made at Wikipedia:Images for upload.
