This page contains the Payday Wiki's image policy. It describes rules for images which are uploaded to the wiki.


  • Images should ideally be in .png (Portable Network Graphics) format because it is designed for transferring images on the Internet and it is the image format that contains the maximum amount of information about the image.
  • Images may only be uploaded for use in articles and on user pages. On talk or forum pages, please link external images instead. Images for use in one's signature are considered user page images.
  • Images are subject to the general policies and guidelines. In addition, there are some specific rules for this type of content outlined under the following sections.

Article imagesEdit

  • Images should be of good quality.
  • Images should not include parts of the UI (HUD, crosshair) where possible, unless the point of the given image is to illustrate the UI itself.
  • Images should have a descriptive name related to their subject (e.g. An image of Dallas in PAYDAY 2 could be called "Dallas PD2.png")
