< Template:Please tag images


To create a new language version of this template, create a new subpage and use this code:

{{please tag images/layout
|text=Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images and other files on Commons must be under a free license and should be useful to the Wikimedia projects. To allow others to use your files, some additional information must be given on the description page. Most importantly:
* Describe '''what it is about''' in a short sentence. (What does the image show?)
* State the '''author''' and the '''date of creation'''. If you made it yourself, say so explicitly. If it is from another Wikimedia user, '''link to the person's local user page'''. Best to use [[tools:~magnus/commonshelper.php|CommonsHelper]].
* If you did not create the file yourself, state the '''source''' you got it from.
* Add a '''[[Commons:Copyright tags|copyright tag]]''' - images without an appropriate license tag will be '''deleted'''.
* Add the image to one or more '''gallery pages''' and/or '''appropriate [[Commons:Categories|categories]]''', so it can be found by others. To find out where an image belongs, you can use [[tools:~daniel/WikiSense/CommonSense.php|CommonsSense]].

If you copied the file '''from another wiki''', please '''copy all information''' given there and say who uploaded it to that wiki. Use [[tools:~magnus/commonshelper.php|CommonsHelper]].

It is recommended to use [[Template:Information]] to put that information on the description page. Have a look at [[Template talk:Information]] for details of the use of this template.

You can edit the description page and change the text. ''Uploading a new version of the file does not change the description of the file''.

Please add as much information as possible. If there is not sufficient information, the file may have to be '''deleted'''. For more information, follow the [[Commons:First steps]] guide. If you need help or have questions, please ask at the [[Commons:Help desk|Help desk]]. 

Thank you.
