The '''image tagging policy''' deals with the proper identification, categorization and tagging of photos used in the wiki.  For the policy on proper image use on this wiki, [[Battlestar Wiki:Image use policy|click here]].
:''Moved to [[:md:Battlestar Wiki Media:Image tagging policy|Battlestar Wiki Media:Image tagging policy]]''
 
== Rationale ==
 
In order to properly identify images, as well as to offer the proper credit, the images need to be tagged.  This page covers how to tag a photo.
 
== Tags ==
 
=== Fair use ===
 
Since Battlestar Wiki doesn't actually own the rights to ''Battlestar Galactica'', these images are used under the [[Wikipedia:fair use|fair use]] clause of United States copyright law.  Thus all these tags reflect this.
 
* {{tl|promo}} -- Used for promotional photos released by Universal/Sci-Fi. Images are placed under [[:Category:Promotional images]].
* {{tl|screencap}} -- Used to identify a generic screen cap. All images in this category are placed under [[:Category:Screen captures]].
* {{tl|HD-screencap}} -- Used to identify captures from DVD and HDTV broadcast sources. All images are placed under [[:Category:HD screen captures]]. This category has been '''deprecated'''.
