expose Image cards metadata

Idea

 

+issue

How to specify image ownership, copyright, and license for images? Shouldn't it be built in?

 

+solution

Every image card could have a hard form associated with it (image+metadata?) with inclusions along the lines of:

 

_left [the image itself]


_left+attribution
_left+description
_left+license
_left+taglist

 

_left+*plus cards that include

 

Clicking on any image could take you to this card.

 

May want to do something similar for files.

 

+example
http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Image:Broadway_tower_edit.jpg

Internally linking to [.[Image:Broadway_tower_edit.jpg]] will show only the image, but clicking on the image from a page where it's linked will take you to the image page by default.

Aren't there fields for attribution, description and license *in* image files themselves? Maybe Wagn could just expose those in automatically-generated cards. And if you edit the cards, it edits the file!

Images do carry automatic metadata, although I believe it's usually just the camera it was taken with, resolution and other similar data. Who took the picture, the license (such as Creative Commons), and how to legally attribute the work are human created. The only problem is you don't want this data to be transcluded along with the picture when inserting it in another card.

Something to research (metadata in image files). Whatever such stuff there is, we could expose card metadata in cards to show it, overriding the relevant cards in the above solution, or...?.
