The Image Policy of Encyclopedia Gamia outlines the formatting of filenames for files to be uploaded, and also details the formats that should be used.

Formatting

  • Box Art (such as covers, etc) should start with "Box-Art-" with hyphens used instead of spaces. The name of the game should follow next; hyphens are to be used instead of spaces (Such as "Super-Mario-Bros-3"), and punctuation should be removed. The region should follow next (Such as "NA" or "EU") should be added on after, followed by the acronym for the platform(s) the box art was released for.

If the artwork includes a provisional rating, append "-P" to the end of the file, before the file extension. If the box art specifies PC DVD-ROM or PC CD-ROM, use "PC", however if the box mentions Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Mac OS X, Linux or DOS, use the correct suffix.

Formats

Certain formats are more appealing for use than others, for quality reasons. For icons and other such small images, SVG vector images are preferred, as they scale with bigger sizes much better. Failing that, PNG images are to be used. JPEG images are preferred not to be used if possible, and GIF images should ideally not be used at all (with the exception of animated GIF images).
