Most toons are framed by a border with rounded edges. When taking a full-sized screenshot, cropping the frame of the toon will leave rounded black regions in each corner. To remove these, replace each black corner with the color of the nearby part of the image (for the most part, those regions are monochromatic). This method is preferred to merely cropping the frame so that the black corners are out of image, since this latter approach omits some of the information in the scene.

The screenshot should be added as a thumbnail, as shown above. Use a caption which is fun and demonstrates the tone or plot of the toon. In most cases, the caption will be a quote from the toon; these should be put in quotes. However, when the caption is not a direct quote, do not use quotation marks. It is common, but by no means required, for the caption to match the scene the image is from. If using an image from earlier or later in the toon than where the caption was derived yields a better combination of image and caption for the article, that's what should be done.

(Please note that articles on topics other than toons normally have a thumbnail as well. The caption to these types of images may or may not be from the same toon the image is from, depending on the article; there's nothing wrong with having the caption and the image from two separate places if it works.)
