File description template. Based on Wikipedia's Template:Information. Formerly known as "Template:Imagedesc".

Please be careful when dealing with which details refer to the original work, and which refer to your additional work in bringing the original work to the wiki.

When taking a photograph and uploading it, this is your original work that belongs to you and is copyrighted to you (unless waived); you are both the source and author. When scanning in a document, the paper document is the original work, whose copyright belongs to the manufacturer who produced it; you are the source of the file that was uploaded but not the author of the work in question.

For photographs, "Date" refers to the date that the photograph was taken (which may be years ago). For scans, "Date" refers to the date of the scanned document, for historical reference. "Date" never refers to the upload date, as MediaWiki records that automatically.
