All files should be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons except those strictly relevant only to the English Wikisource (such as local project logos, copyright-free image files or OTRS secured user photographs). Images on the Wikimedia Commons can be used on all projects, including Wikisource. Further detail at Wikisource:Image guidelines

  • The preferred image formats are .jpg for photographic images, .svg or .png for drawings and other iconic images, and .ogg for audio.
  • The {{information}} template should be completed with submissions.
