Review and assessment[edit]

Images[edit]

WikiProject Illinois uses Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Illinois to monitor all Illinois articles needing images. In addition, this category helps Wikipedian photographers, living in Illinois, to locate those subjects near where they typically take photographs. The imageneeded= and in= parameters of {{WikiProject Illinois}} populate this category.

  • To request an image for an article, use the imageneeded=yes parameter in the {{WikiProject Illinois}} talk page template. Please use the in= parameter in the {{WikiProject Illinois}} template to specify the Illinois county, where the photograph may be taken. Up to three locations may be specified, for example:
    {{WikiProject Illinois|class=Start|importance=Low|imageneeded=yes|in=DuPage County, Illinois|in2=Will County, Illinois|in3=Cook County, Illinois|unref=yes}}

Alternatively, you may use: For Illinois-related articles needing a photograph, use {{Image requested|in=Illinois}} in the talk page, which adds the article to Category:Wikipedia requested photographs in Illinois. You can help Wikipedia by uploading freely licensed photographs for these articles to Wikimedia Commons.

The Free Image Search Tool may be able to locate suitable images on other web sites.

The Image Existence Checker shows articles in this list that have images.
