Each [[Help:Uploading files|uploaded file]] has an associated '''file description page''' which gives information about the source, licensing and technical details of the file.

== What are the parts of the page? ==
[Verse 1: Jake Paul]
 
  +
The description page consists of four parts:
It's everyday bro
 
  +
# The image itself, or a link to a non-image file
With the Disney Channel flow
 
  +
#* The description page shows either the full-size image, or a reduced-size version with a link to the full version labeled "Full resolution".
5 mill on YouTube in 6 months
 
  +
#* Displayed images can be slightly different to the original upload, as images are automatically optimised for use on the web. A "download" link is available to obtain the original file.
Never done before
 
  +
# An "About" tab that contains:
We pass all the competition man
 
  +
#* a description of the image/sound, which you can add or edit by editing the image page

If they ain't with the crew
 
Yeah, I'm talking about you
 
You beggin for attention
 
Talking shit on Twitter too
 
But you still hit my phone last night
 
It was 4:52 and I got the text to prove
 
And all the recordings too
 
Don't make me tell them the truth
 
And I just drop some new merch
 
And they are selling like a God church
 
Ohio is where I'm from
 
We chew 'em like it's gum
 
We shooting with a gun
 
The tattoo just for fun

Catch me at game one

== How do I update the page? ==

  +
The description text under the "About" tab can be edited like normal article text - by clicking the "Edit" button. This will also allow you to categorize the image.
It's everyday bro
 
It's everyday bro
 
It's everyday bro
 
I said it is everyday bro!
 
   
  +
The image itself can be updated by uploading a new image with the same name via upload tools, or by using the "Upload a new version of this file" link at the bottom of the "File history" tab.

You know is Nick Crompton
 
And my collar stay poppin'
 
Yes, I can rap
 
And no, I am not from Compton
 
England is my city
 
And if it weren't for Team 10
 
Then the US would be shitty
 
And I'll pass it to Chance
 
'Cuz you know he stay litty

This area allows normal article [[Help:Wikitext|wikitext]]. Initially the description automatically contains the [[Help:Edit summary|upload summary]] supplied by the user when uploading the first version (this text also shows up in the "File history" section in the "Comment" column).

If the image is licensed under a CC-BY license (or most similar licenses) it must be attributed to the copyright holder (usually the photographer).  If this is not done, your upload violates the terms of the license, and is a copyright violation.

Even if the image is public domain or is under a license that doesn't require attribution, please provide source information anyway to make verification easy. Remember that your community might be around for ten, twenty, or a hundred years, and later readers or editors may have different needs for verifying the source of an image.

== Can I categorize images? ==
IT'S EVERYDAY BRO!
 
  +
By adding a [[Help:Category|category]] tag on the image page, images can be in the same category as other pages, but are treated a little differently: they are not included in the count of articles in the category, and they are displayed in a separate section, with a thumbnail and the name for each.

  +
A category can either mix articles and images about a subject, or you can create separate image categories. An image category is typically a subcategory of the general category about the same subject, and a subcategory of a wider image category.
  +
  +
For categorizing a brand new image, the image page does not even have to be edited: the category code can be included in the upload summary.

  +
== Can images be protected? ==
  +
[[Help:User rights#Administrators|Administrators]] and [[Help:User rights#Content Moderators|content moderators]] can [[Help:Page protection|protect]] an image description page, which automatically protects the image itself, preventing users without specified rights from reuploading that image or uploading an image of the same name.

  +
== How do I link to an image page without displaying the image? ==
  +
To make a link to the image description page of an image without including the actual image, use a leading colon in the link, like: <code><nowiki>[[:File:Image.png]]</nowiki></code> or <code><nowiki>[[:File:Image.jpg]]</nowiki></code>. The colon prevents the image being embedded in the article, and instead makes an ordinary internal link.

Revision as of 22:35, 28 October 2017

An image description page.

Each uploaded file has an associated file description page which gives information about the source, licensing and technical details of the file.

What are the parts of the page?

The description page consists of four parts:

  1. The image itself, or a link to a non-image file
    • The description page shows either the full-size image, or a reduced-size version with a link to the full version labeled "Full resolution".
    • Displayed images can be slightly different to the original upload, as images are automatically optimised for use on the web. A "download" link is available to obtain the original file.
  2. An "About" tab that contains:
    • a description of the image/sound, which you can add or edit by editing the image page
    • a list of pages on which the image appears (not including pages that simply link to the image page)
  3. A "File History" tab that contains:
    • The history of uploads for that image (see also page history)
    • A link to upload a new version of that image
  4. A "Metadata" tab, when metadata of the image is available.

How do I update the page?

The description text under the "About" tab can be edited like normal article text - by clicking the "Edit" button. This will also allow you to categorize the image.

The image itself can be updated by uploading a new image with the same name via upload tools, or by using the "Upload a new version of this file" link at the bottom of the "File history" tab.

What information should be placed on the "About" tab?

This area allows normal article wikitext. Initially the description automatically contains the upload summary supplied by the user when uploading the first version (this text also shows up in the "File history" section in the "Comment" column).

Description of the image

Example: "Image of a goldfish in a small tank". This is useful for users who do not have direct access to the image.

Author and source information

Always provide as much information as you can about the creator of the image, and where you got the image (i.e. a website, scanned from a book, took a photo yourself).

If the image is licensed under a CC-BY license (or most similar licenses) it must be attributed to the copyright holder (usually the photographer).  If this is not done, your upload violates the terms of the license, and is a copyright violation.

Even if the image is public domain or is under a license that doesn't require attribution, please provide source information anyway to make verification easy. Remember that your community might be around for ten, twenty, or a hundred years, and later readers or editors may have different needs for verifying the source of an image.

Licensing information

Please include an image copyright tag, either by typing the correct template (such as {{Fairuse}} by hand, or choosing from a license selector dropdown, if available on your wiki.

If applicable, provide a link to documentation of the licensing terms (i.e. a "Terms of use" or "About" page for the website where you got the image).

Other versions

If other versions (especially a larger version) of the same image exists, it can be helpful to link to them. For example:

  • [[File:Goldfish-in-tank-large.jpg|larger version]] ([[:File:Goldfish-in-tank-large.jpg|info]])
  • [[File:Goldfish-in-tank2.jpg|different camera angle]] ([[:File:Goldfish-in-tank2.jpg|info]])
  • [[File:Goldfish-in-tank-textfree.jpg|text-free version]] ([[:File:Goldfish-in-tank-textfree.jpg|info]])

Text-free versions may be useful for using across different languages.

Can I categorize images?

By adding a category tag on the image page, images can be in the same category as other pages, but are treated a little differently: they are not included in the count of articles in the category, and they are displayed in a separate section, with a thumbnail and the name for each.

A category can either mix articles and images about a subject, or you can create separate image categories. An image category is typically a subcategory of the general category about the same subject, and a subcategory of a wider image category.

For categorizing a brand new image, the image page does not even have to be edited: the category code can be included in the upload summary.

Can images be protected?

Administrators and content moderators can protect an image description page, which automatically protects the image itself, preventing users without specified rights from reuploading that image or uploading an image of the same name.

How do I link to an image page without displaying the image?

To make a link to the image description page of an image without including the actual image, use a leading colon in the link, like: [[:File:Image.png]] or [[:File:Image.jpg]]. The colon prevents the image being embedded in the article, and instead makes an ordinary internal link.
