Lua error in Module:Autotranslate at line 72: No fallback page found for autotranslate (base=Template:Documentation subpage, lang=⧼lang⧽).

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. Please use template {{Artwork}} if the image is of a painting, sculpture or other artwork and {{Book}} if the image is a part of a complete set of page scans of a book (or in the case of DjVu and PDF, one file may comprise all the pages).

This template is used to provide formatting to the basic information for files (description, source, author, etc.). This template is automatically inserted by the JavaScript-aided upload tool too.

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

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Author matching Creator template, Creator template not used when appropriate

Recommendations

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

Microformat

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 {{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}} or {{Object location}}.
