Watermark Crown CA.png This image contains digital watermarking or credits in the image itself. This image (or all images in this article or category) should be adapted by removing the watermark. The usage of watermarks is discouraged according to policy. If a non-watermarked version of the image is available, please upload it under the same file name and then remove this template. After removing the watermark, ensure that the removed information is present in the EXIF tags, the image description page, or both, and then either remove this template or replace it with {{ Attribution metadata from licensed image}} or {{ Metadata from image}}, whichever is appropriate to the image.

If the old version is still useful, for example if removing the watermark damages the image significantly, upload the new version under a different title so that both can be used (e.g. [[File:Mount_Everest.jpg]] → [[File:Mount_Everest - no watermark.jpg]]. After uploading the non-watermarked version, replace this template with: {{ superseded|File:Mount Everest - no watermark.jpg|image without watermarks}}, replacing the italicised name with the file name in question.
