Images[ | ]

Images make an article memorable. They can speak where words fail. At the same time, misplaced or untidy images can detract from an article. When choosing images, keep in mind placement, size, and the appropriateness of the image to the section. Let images flow with the text instead of break it up.


  • Use the "Destination filename" box to name the in line with DayZ:Image Prefixes policy.
  • Keep copyrights in mind when uploading images. Screenshot are considered to fall under fairuse.


  • Images should be of the highest quality possible. See User:Tatanko guide to screenshots.
  • When taking Screenshot, set the absolute highest graphical options possible and Change your 3D resolution to 100%.
  • Crop if necessary, don't leave a ton of 'empty' space for the image.
  • Use JPEG format for screenshots and PNG/SVG format for icons, logos, drawings, flags and other images with relatively few colors, but sharp color transitions.


  • You should always be watchful not to overwhelm an article with images by adding more just because you can.
  • Unused images should be deleted.
