I was going through the Wiki pages making minor corrections and trying to get an overview of it's contents.

Add the addig pictures to the Wiki page it said that it was currently not possible to add pictures to the new wiki. I wanted to test this so attempted to upload a picture at a testsite I made. It turned out that it is possible to add pictures and use them in the Wiki, but unfortunetaly it is impssible to delete the pictures again.

Could somebody who has access to do this please remove the following picture:

I simply added this picture to test whether or not the "Adding pictures" part of the wiki needed to be updated, and it seems like it does face-wink.png

It is by design that you cannot delete images. This gurantees that old wiki pages/revisions that reference them stay valid. I deleted the picture you mentioned.

I was not suggesting to make it possible to delete pictures face-wink.png

What is the restriction on size and type of picture for upload?

No restrictions. Remember though that most browsers will only show a subtype of images (TIFF is not very common for example). Best idea is png or jpg.
