Description

This template has two optional parameters:

Parameter Description
image has rationale If it is set to yes, the text at the bottom of the template requesting that the uploader provide a fair use rationale or use a free screenshot is removed.
Category name By default, images with this template will be sorted into Category:Screenshots of software. Optionally, the first unnamed parameter can also be a category name, so that a screenshot may be sorted into a more specific category. For example:

{{Non-free software screenshot|Screenshots of video games}}

will place the image into Category:Screenshots of video games.

Most used categories include:

  • Screenshots of Windows software
  • Screenshots of Linux software
  • Screenshots of Mac software
  • Screenshots of web-based software
  • Screenshots of video games

Please do not add images to "Free screenshots" or "Screenshots of public domain software" categories with this template because this template is only for copyrighted software.
