Image edit

Mr. Ashcraft, this picture that I uploaded for my creationwiki has a border around it. Should I remove it and if so, how should I do so? Here's the picture Porthidium lansbergii.jpg Aton 18:23, 23 December 2007 (EST)

Whether or not you can edit a Creative Commons Licensed image is stated by the copyright holder. Check the license to see if you can "Make Derivative Works" or "Remix" the work. I checked already and you can edit it. Crop it using an image editor, swivel it to straight, and upload it again.
You can upload a newer version of any image. Look for the link below the picture description on the Pool. Note however, that when uploading a newer version, the form fields are useless. If you need to change that text, do so after uploading by clicking the edit link.

Lichen images

The vast majority of them on the Wikipedia page are identified - by form - if not by species. You should do your best to do the same.

A couple of pictures that arent identified are acceptable, such as the main image, or where a bunch of different lichen are present in the same picture, or if its a super cool shot.

Feel free to upload this image from flickr.

We'd really like all of these (Ernst Haeckel lithographs) on the CreationWiki. Place it here (if you use it) and categorize it the same as the others.
