Picture of francium[edit]

@Jd52102 and Double sharp:. I just removed File:Picture_of_Francium.jpg. This is not just a picture, it also has the periodic-table-cell like additions. Introducing that would be confusion, given our wiki-wide common presentations of chemical elements & the periodic table.

However, it would be OK if that picture itself were isolated. Is it free? Can we ask WP:Graphics lab to cut it out? That would be great. -DePiep (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

I notice that the image was uploaded today by Jd52102, and that a free-use declaration is missing. That is a Wikipedia:Non-free content issue that must be solved anyway. I like the Fr image, would be ice if we can use it. -DePiep (talk) 21:04, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
That would be a great idea! I don't know why there was a picture of francium before, but, if all goes well, There will be Yours Truly (talk) 21:46, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Of course, when I wrote would be ice if we can use it I meant to say 'cool'. As in: nice ice, neat to eat. ;-) -DePiep (talk) 21:51, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Now it is an ore? I'm not sure. -DePiep (talk) 22:16, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
I have removed the picture, on the grounds that it does not show Fr as an element, but rather a mineral which does not even contain any meaningful quantity of Fr, just a few atoms. Now I realize this makes it absolutely impossible to have a picture for the article, but I think a somewhat misleading picture (the only implication that this is not actually Fr comes from the small caption) is worse than not having one.
