Add image attribution info to the image metadata of Share a Fact images
Open, LowPublic


It may be worthwhile to add proper image attribution to the image metadata of Share a Fact images. We lose nothing in terms of presentation by doing so, and it may be useful information for third parties.

I imagine the licence and the author of the image would be pretty good, as well as a URL to the file page of the image. The CommonsMetadata API should be able to provide us with this information.

This might be tricky on iOS for technical reasons. It might be easier on Android.

There has been some related discussion on T71941.

I disagree that this is the duplicate of the other task. This task is about metadat, the other task about the data every user can view if he sees the picture.

I support this concept, but curious if this wouldn't make more sense being done on the backend so that all clients get an image with the right meta-data?

Sorry if there's a wrinkle I'm missing, just seems it would be better to do this right once, rather than multiple times locally.
