For

This image or logo template table shows all of the current (and proposed) templates to be used when uploading new images, or editing existing image files. Crucially, usage of the correct image template not only auto-categorises the image file correctly into its appropriate sub-category, it also highlights any specific copyright noted by the said image, and apportions the copyright to its rightful owner. This is vital, because images (and related visual media) are classed as 'art', and licensing for works of art is very different to written textual work. Many wiki logo are specifically protected by copyright.

Usage

Simply select and highlight {{File / image templates table|}}, copy (Ctrl-c on your PC keyboard or ⌘-c on your Mac keyboard), and then paste (Ctrl-v or ⌘-v) it to the relevant file / image sub-category edit box, and save your edit (Ctrl-s or ⌘-s). This will then auto-include it into the appropriate file / image category as shown in the table below.
