It contains usage information, categories and other content that is not part of the original template page.

This template is added to pages or sections that require updates to one or more images.

Usage

Place {{UpdateImage}} at the top of a new page to produce the default message box.

Alternately, the following optional variables can be used to adjust the generic message:

| contact     = URL of forum or user
| contacttype = forum or user
| section     = yes
| talk        = yes
}}
