The File namespace is used to store metadata for images, videos, sound files and other media accessed via the Media namespace.

Each file has a corresponding page in the File namespace which is often used to hold licensing data.


Linking directly to a page in this namespace instead includes the media file inline in the page: For example [[File:Wiki.png|left]] produces the image to the left. See Help:Images for more details of this link syntax.

To create an internal link to the file page, you need to add a colon to the front of the namespace: [[:File:Wiki.png|right]] produces File:Wiki.png.

The standard MediaWiki installation has alias "Image" for File namespace - See Namespace aliases.
