The FIST tool (Deadlink, July 2022) allows you to search for Free Images based on the topic. Note that queries that include a large number of images can be very slow.

WDWP a new tool developed for the WPWP has an index of articles with missing images in certain languages (This tool is very useful)


The WDFIST tool allows to assign images to Wikidata items. Any Wikidata item that is used in an Infobox can possibly automatically show the image, depending on the language infobox logic.

File Candidates

FileCandidates has pre-compiled lists of potential images on Commons (as well as free images on Flickr that can be transferred to Commons) for Wikidata items. A Commons image found for a Wikidata item can then be used on the corresponding Wikipedia article.


WikiShootMe shows Wikidata items, marked as with and without image, Wikipedia articles, Commons images, and others on a map. Ideal if you are physically in a location and want to see what objects around you need an image on Wikipedia and Wikidata. The Commons mobile app also shows nearby articles needing a picture.
