Is there any reason why this is a long list of images instead of a galery? Andreas Tille 12:33, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I suspect that's because the page was started when we only had a couple of featured pictures. Perhaps we should switch this page to a gallery version, and have a seperate page with larger versions like we have now for those who wish to see the images in higher resolution? What do other people think? -- Infrogmation 17:55, 14 Jan 2005 (UTC)
I've been bold and switched to the gallery system. I also created a few headings so the pictures are not completely unsorted. I had to create a heading for animations because they only show up right if they are shown in their original size. I think it looks quite ok, just revert me if it doesn't to you. Comments are welcome of course. --Conti| 03:57, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Looks fine to me. Thanks. -- Infrogmation 07:18, 17 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Unfortunately, "gallery" syntax doesn't work fine with my Opera browser. Some pictures just don't show up. Does anybody know why ? villy 16:47, 21 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Strange. Opera is what I'm using now, and it is all loading fine for me. -- Infrogmation
I have had the same experience with Firefox. I assume it is a cache problem. I have used "Open picture in new Window" and have performed a "refresh" on this window. Afterwards, the picture appears fine. --Heidas 14:10, 8 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Split to several pages?[edit]

At the moment, there are more than 100 pictures on this side and there are several featured pictures added every week. I think, we should think about splitting this page to several pages of categories (Places, Animals, People, ...). Perhaps on this page/in this template there could be some kind of portal for those categories like that:

  • Animals
Pavo cristatus head Tiger, Sumatran subspecies (Panthera tigris) Flamingo
» more ...
  • Food and drink
Barrels of Japanese sake Roasted coffee beans Assorted citrus fruit slices
» more ...

In this way, you can see some examples and browse the category you want. Of course this system has to be a template, too. Please comment, norro 15:35, 7 May 2005 (UTC)

Why haven't you started yet? :-). Support. --Avatar 15:37, 23 May 2005 (UTC)
Because I'm not too bold :) But okay, i will start at next opportunity norro 15:43, 23 May 2005 (UTC)

Page split[edit]

I did it. -- Fabien1309 22:09, 3 October 2005 (UTC)

Picture taken by satelite[edit]

All the images taken by satelite are not images of astronomy. Astronomy is the study of the sky and not the study of the Earth. A new category would be needed "Picture taken by Satelite"? --Luc Viatour 09:19, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

New format to allow translation[edit]

I have added parameters to allow translation of this list (COM:QI as reference). Please copy the following format into your language pages.

A new category was added, so the format is now the following:
