Documentation for the template: Author Image Data-PD


This template is to be placed on the image description page of a public domain photograph of a person (author, editor, or the like).


Call this template as:

{{Author Image Data-PD
|Name=<Name of author> (person shown in picture)
|NameId=<id of author> (only required for names with characters that break Template:A)
|Photographer=<Person who took the picture>
|Year=<Year of publication>
|Source=<where did we get the image from>
|Publication=<Where and when was this image published>
|Reason=<Why this image is public domain> (example: "First published prior to 1925.")

All parameter names have an initial capital letter. Case is significant in a parameter name. The order of the parameters is not significant, but the order above is suggested, as it is the order of use within the template.

Note: In all the above examples, when a parameter is shown in angle brackets, like:


then the parameter, and the angle brackets, should be replaced by the value of the parameter. For example: Title=<TITLE> should become Title=The Name of the Book (or whatever the name might be).
