This documentation is transcluded from Template:Milim/doc.

A military image template for preserving the most relevant fields for photographs and other media available on the website https://dvidshub.net or other Department of Defense websites that provide the same metadata. Note that https://defenseimagery.mil had a public interface before 2015, but has been hidden, effectively superseded by dvidshub. Existing links on Commons can be usefully swapped over to DVIDS links where they exist.

Please ensure the VIRIN is always provided in this template. This ensures that non-identical duplicates can be found. As photographs from the Department of Defense may have varied EXIF data, the normal file hash check will not always find these duplicates.
