Hey there Templates!

It appears that you may have forgotten to assign a license to the pictures you recently uploaded. I just wanted to verify whether you made these pictures yourself or got them from somewhere else:

{{{1}}}

If this is a screenshot of computer software, let me know so I can tag the image as Fair Use. If you got it from a search engine, like Google or Bing, or a website you found, please let me know which site - images that are copyrighted can't be used on wikiHow and have to be removed, but you can search for images we already have permission to use by entering search terms in the Search area instead of uploading using the "Browse" button. For more information, see Import Freely Licensed Images Into wikiHow. If you're searching for images on the web, check to make sure they have a "Creative Commons" or "Public Domain" license associated with them (might be found near the picture, or in the site's Terms of Use), rather than "All Rights Reserved". If using Google Images, you can click on "Search Tools", then "Usage Rights", then "Labeled for Reuse".

Thanks again! If there's anything I can help you with now or in the future, don't hesitate to contact me or someone else in the wikiHow forums. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
