Are you new to Wikitravel Shared? Please click here to begin!

Wikitravel Shared is the central coordination point and shared repository for images and other media for all language versions of Wikitravel, the free, complete, up-to-date and reliable world-wide travel guide. Wikitravel Shared currently contains 58,227 files uploaded by Wikitravellers.

Wikitravel strives to be a leader in travel research with up-to-date and complete articles, and images can often convey more than a thousand words. Some articles may already have images, however, should you happen to have an image that captures the soul of the destination please replace the current image with your own. Additionally, some articles don't have any images at all and we welcome any contribution you can make. Please visit the list of the articles without an image at Requests for images.

How to use Shared images

To use a Shared image on any Wikitravel language version, just use the normal syntax [[Image:filename.jpg]] to include it. Either the English Image: or the local language (Bild:, 画像:, etc) can be used as the command.

The Wikitravel software will automatically check both the Shared and the local image repositories for the image. Note that if the same filename exists on both the local site and the Shared site, the local image has precedence.
