This is a user template for providing information about my photographs in accordance with the Commons guidelines for user templates. It produces relevant parameters for the {{information}} template, as well as additional fields such as camera model. As this template does not directly contain the licensing tags, it does not need to be substituted.

This template automatically provides interlanguage links to sister projects that use the images, and also automatically categorises images into relevant date related categories, e.g. Category:4 November, as well as my user category. It also enables me to keep an external database of my images, which in turn is used to create my personal gallery, etc.

Changes can be trialled in the sandbox.

Please do not make any changes to this without discussing it with me first. Thank-you.   An optimist on the run!
