Whoops! Maybe you were looking for Uncyclopedia:Reefer Desk?
For a list of unused images, see a current listing.
For requests other than images, see the more generalized requests page.

Foreword by Paulgb

RadicalX got this award for Photoshopping once. He's that good.

A picture is worth a thousand words. It can also make a good article into a very good article. If you see an article in sore need of a picture, request the image here. Surely someone out there has a digital camera and the 'shopping skills to generate original images? (N.B. copyright-related shenanigans apply when uploading pictures)


The idea of this page is that it is for photos that are original or photoshopped, or for getting help finding an image that adds a lot to a page. If you simply want an illustrative image that is already all over the place on the internet, use GIS. I have this page on my watchlist, and I am sure that there are a few other people who have more PS skill than I do, so any request will probably lead to an image.

Also, since original content is better than just copying an image from some other site, if there are any images that are already uploaded but could have something added to them, post that up too. --Paulgb 09:55, 24 Mar 2005 (EST)

Not sure if this is the place for you? Have a look at some of our recent work!


Archived Image Requests:

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10
11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 18 - 19

Note: Although RadicalX is Uncyclopedia's prize photoshopper, everyone is welcome and encouraged to help fulfill image requests.
Note: If nothing on this page tickles your creative fancy, check this Category for more pages which need pictures.
Note: This is image request. Be polite!

Note from RadicalX

RadXGod

Just a quick note for all you request makers. If I do an image for you and you see a way for it to be better, let me know! I'm willing to revise based on your vision. Seacrest out. --Strong RadX 21:54, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Yah, same goes for pictures I make. --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 23:00, 6 February 2007 (UTC)
Same here, even though I haven't made anything worth 2 pence in about a year --LinkTGF 20:49, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
And a note from me: we try to pick up what we can on here, but be patient, we're busy, and can't respond to all requests straight away!
Also, this is really image request, rather than inspiration request. So please try to have an idea of the image you want in mind. If you ask for a specific image, it's easier to produce (or just to tell you it's not something we can do!). If not, you you may be waiting for a long time! (Or you may not). --Sir Under User (Hi, How Are You?) VFH KUN 18:49, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Recently, the requests seem to have been going slower than average. Don't be shy, make requests! Our Photoshops and GIMPs will get bored without you! Sir Not A Good Username360Stress KUN 01:25, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

New requests go on top!

Spoofing Wikipedia's current site notice

Since A personal appeal from Jimbo Wales has been created and thought this might be a good oppertunity to spoof the current site notice on Wikipedia. The general idea I had was to simply substitute the Jimbo Wales photo of this image:

Picture 2 22-45-01

with other images from Category:Jimbo Wales such as

Jimbo-bikini-babes

The only problem is incorporating the "A personal appeal from Jimbo Wales" as a link. I assume it's included as part of a template but I don't know the nessessary coding. MadMax 04:12, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

MadMax 04:12, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Well, the way they have it set up, the entire thing is a link, and the text is the same link with mouse-over effects. So the question is, how well does this place support CSS? The image(s) itself should be simple enough. How many do you want, though, and do you want them of the same form as the wikipedia ones? IS this what your forever template is for? ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101116 - 05:28 (UTC)

I'll have to ask User:Splaka, or someone more familiar with the technical side of things about how well CSS works. I thought of using a single image originally, since Wikipedia is using one image, but I guess multiple ones could be used with <choose> to sort them randomly. The {{Forever}} template is just an idea I've been working on. Since Wikipedia uses it for its annual fundraisers, or at least since last year, I thought it'd be funny to have an Uncyclopedia version. MadMax 07:31, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, that's pretty good. Thanks. MadMax 07:36, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm, still can't get the text to line up along the right side of the image. Solved the alignment problem with this version but text is a little small. It'd be nice to have an exact copy, complete with the "Read Now" and hide buttons. Of course, you could insert {{fakelink}} in place of the hide button as well. MadMax 08:03, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Useless comment - there was more than one image. I've seen at least three of Jimbo Wales, and they've even started having personal appeals from contributors, too... but of the wales ones, sannse linked this on IRC the other day, if you want an idea of how good they can get.

Although now, hitting purge a bunch of times, it always comes up with the same one... maybe they ditched the fun ones. Boo. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101116 - 15:54 (UTC)

Really? I just saw the one version. Ah well. MadMax 06:27, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

In other news, I've been fiddling, and actually mimicking what they did is impossible, anyway, because wikia not only does not let us use <css>, but doesn't even allow css image backgrounds, even of site files, which is the only effective way to prevent overflow or repeat a gradient in a hypertext setting.

My idea was to use this with this repeating, as that's the only logical way to do something like this, but since it is apparently impossible here... could try talking to sannse, but as it stands, Ftiercel's method is probably your best bet, although you'll need a way to suppress the overflow. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101116 - 16:31 (UTC)

Ooo! I got another idea. Since it's, like, for the site notice, and all, you could, erm, put a couple of extra classes in the Mediawiki:Common.css for it and... um... okay, that'd probably be a terrible idea. But... er... it would work. I think. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101116 - 16:44 (UTC)

That's a good idea but I should probably have to ask around before I start fooling around with it. MadMax 06:27, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for this morning. I was in the hurry. I fixed the problem. Ftiercel 19:43, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

Nice! The only thing is the "view the content message" on the original version but I'm guessing that's probably unavoidable if you're saving it? MadMax 06:27, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Does someone know how to make a real colored link? Moreover, this may interest you. Ftiercel 21:33, November 16, 2010 (UTC)

I tried using <font color=white> but it doesn't turn out so well. You might want upload a new version of your image and just use the text from the original version. MadMax 06:27, November 17, 2010 (UTC)


  • When I saw MadMax had added a version of this to the sitenotice I thought I should give it my best shot.

I hope you like it. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 06:11, November 17, 2010 (UTC)
That's great, thanks ZB. MadMax 06:30, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

This is prettier:

Maybe ZB could use this image in place of the current one and then both versions could be used with
