Why is there not image of Mychal Judge in this article? Since he is dead and there are not free images a fair use image could be used. SpeakFree (talk)(contribs) 02:01, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

I found some potential images from NPR, Huffington Post, etc., but the wording on WP:NFCI confuses me with regards to commercial opportunity. Since the images are from press agencies, in order to avoid the "automatic fail", does the image have to relate to the press agency, or to the subject of the image? I'm confused.

I think the policy is stated more clearly in the negative at WP:NFC#UUI#7: Unacceptable uses include "A photo from a press or photo agency (e.g., AP, Corbis or Getty Images), unless the photo itself is the subject of sourced commentary in the article." So the title photo in Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima is acceptable even though it is an AP photo because the photo itself is the subject sourced commentary. I doubt there is any photo of Mychal Judge where the photo itself might receive coverage that could provide a source for encyclopedic commentary. Does that explain what you didn't understand? —teb728 t c 08:41, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes it does, thank you! I'll also ask NPR if they'll license the image for Wikipedia like the image you mentioned was. RegistryKey(RegEdit) 09:49, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
