Dear Eldarion,

There are naming rules when it comes to images: the name of the author correctly spelled and capitalized, followed by a space, a hyphen ("-"), another space, and then, again with proper punctuation and spelling, the official title (but Howe's postcards don't have that). So those two images should be aptly named "John Howe - Boromir 03" (as there are already two other pictures of Boromir in Howe's gallery) and "John Howe - Barad-dûr". Also be sure to add them to the categories "Category:Images by John Howe", "Category:Images of Boromir" and "Category:Images of Barad-dûr". Please note that TolkienGateway does not have a policy of favouring "big" artists like Alan Lee or John Howe; much more the opposite: small, independant artists deserve some screen-time too. Enjoy your stay, -- Ederchil 12:30, 8 March 2008 (EST)

Aditional note: John Howe's Barad-dûr has already been uploaded to the Gateway. ~ Earendilyon 13:48, 8 March 2008 (EST)
Thank your for your help. I added the picture of Boromir to both categories but wasn't able to change the name. I am afraid this isn't possible. Eldarion Telcontar 13:18, 10 March 2008 (EDT)
