Ambox warning orange.svg Note: This template is used on a lot of pages. In order not to put too much load on the servers, edits should be kept to a bare minimum. Please discuss proposed changes on the talk page first.
  • Editing a template causes all pages that use the template to be re-rendered. If the template is used often, this can put a lot of load on the servers since it fills up the job queue.
  • Keep in mind that templates that are used on file description pages also show up on other wikis.

Please give full information for the date, source and author fields. The date of a photograph must be when the original photograph was created, and not the date of upload, nor the date of any scan or other derivative action. If the photographic image has been modified please give author, date and license for each modification.

This template is used to provide formatting to the basic information for files (file content, license, authorship information etc.). This template is automatically inserted by the Javascript-aided upload tool too.

For a full usage description of the template, see commons:Commons:First steps/Quality and description.

Example for photograph

For example the source code of the description of photograph File:Piers Sellers spacewalk.jpg is:

{{Information
| Description    = {{en|Astronaut [[w:Piers Sellers|Piers Sellers]] during the third spacewalk of STS-121, a demonstration of orbiter heat shield repair techniques.}}<!--
                -->{{fr|L'astronaute [[:fr:Piers Sellers|Piers Sellers]] durant sa troisième sortie dans l'espace au cours du vol STS-121, une démonstration des techniques de réparation du bouclier thermique.}}
| Author         = NASA
| Date           = 2006-07-12
| Source         = [http://www.nasa.gov/news/highlights/index.html NASA News & Events] - http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/121_gallery/hi-resjpgs/14.jpg, from http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/121_gallery/index_noaccess.html

Recommendations

For many media it is desirable to use a geocoding template in addition to the Information template.

Parameters

Parameter name Description (this part of the documentation is only available in some languages) Default value required or optional?
description description of the image (and/or title if text file) (using multilingual templates like {{en|}}) empty required
author original author or creator of the file; where appropriate, use [[Author:Name Surname]] or apply {{Creator}}. If the work is derivated, the author of the original (e. g. depicted or retouched) work should be mentioned as well. empty required
date date of publication or creation by one of the following methods:
  • using {{date}} or {{other date}}
  • in ISO 8601 format, e.g. "2006-01-15" for "15 January 2006". The following formats are recognized:
    • YYYY ← YEAR is the minimum date you must provide.
    • YYYY-MM
    • YYYY-MM-DD
    • YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm
    • YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss

If needed, the date have to be furnished with some specifying text (e. g. „date of taken“ or „date of creation“, „date of the first publication“, „date of modification“ etc.). If you use such text specification or more dates, the ISO format is unusable and the date template is needed.

empty required
source information about where the file is from (own files should be tagged with {{own}}); if the file is derivated work, the original work(s) should be designated empty optional
permission license information, eventually other usage limitations and warnings blank field presented as „see-below“ text optional
other_versions links to files with very similar content or derivated files; use<gallery></gallery>. empty optional
other_fields additional table fields (in [escaped] wiki syntax) empty optional

Microformat[edit]

This template also emits an hCalendar microformat marking the creation of the image as an event. To do this, it requires the {{Date}} template, and takes the file name as the "summary" property. Optionally, it can include the {{Photographer}} (soon also {{Creator}}) as an attendee and an hCard microformat, and use the contents of {{Description}} as the hCalendar's "description" property. Coordinates may be included by use of {{Location}}, {{Location dec}} or {{Object location}}.
