This template is used in the "Date" parameter of the {{Information}} template to indicate that a JPEG photo has wrong or incorrect date and/or time information in its Exif metadata. The template should steer bots and users away from using the invalid Exif metadata. (For the future, the template should allow transposing the date and time using a parameter to specify the time difference between the Exif date and time and the correct date and time.)

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Incorrect Exif date


{{Invalid Exif date}}

There are two possible ways to use this template:

  • Use the template without any parameters. It just renders the words "Date and/or time in the file Exif metadata are incorrect/invalid." in the language specified in the user's preferences.
  • Give the time difference of Exif as a parameter. The template displays the corrected date (localized by {{ISOdate}}) and renders the words "according to Exif metadata (corrected)" in the language specified in the user's preferences. (not available yet)

The template takes no parameters.
