This documentation is transcluded from Template:BadGIF/doc.


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

{{BadGIF/layout
|text=This image was (or all images in this article or category were) [[Commons:Upload summary|uploaded]]
 '''in the [[w:GIF|GIF]] format''', while a different format would have been more suitable. Commons discourages 
the use of GIF files, except for animations. See [[Commons:File types]] for more information.

If possible, please upload a PNG version (or JPEG for some photos) of this image, and mark the GIF image 
as {{tlp|superseded|Image:new image name}}. If you like, encourage 
[http://tools.wikimedia.de/~daniel/WikiSense/CheckUsage.php?w=_100000&i=Image:{{PAGENAMEE}} 
other Wikimedia projects using the GIF] to use the new version instead.

<small>If this image is a diagram or other image suitable for [[w:Raster to vector|vectorisation]], please tag 
this image with {{tl|convert to SVG}} instead of {{tl|badGIF}}. If not suitable for vectorisation, use {{tl|convert to PNG}}.</small>
