=== Usage ===
 
 
Creates a link to the Flinfo tool to look up a photo by its [[wikipedia:Flickr|Flickr]] ID, to return a pre-filled {{Tl|Information}} template for the photo, along with a {{Tl|Location}} template if the Flickr photo has geocoding, and Flinfo will also guess at categories for the photo. This is not a fancy template, just an easier-to-remember way to generate the Flinfo link, so you can record it in your notes on a user subpage, or mention it on a talk page, etc. Syntax:
 
 
{{Tlx|Flinfo|Flickr ID|description|categories|destination file name}}
 
 
The first input parameter is mandatory. The last three input parameters are optional. They correspond to the input parameters in [[commons:User:Flominator/Flinfo#Input parameters]]. If you specify a value for any of the last three input parameters, the template displays different instruction text, reminding you to open the upload form from the Flinfo page. That will cause Flinfo to pass your input parameters on to the upload form so you do not have to edit them in by hand. Syntax notes:
 
 
* Separate categories with semicolons. You do not need the Category: namespace prefix.
 
* Omit the File: prefix and the .jpg extension from the destination file name.

=== Do not use in articles ===
 
{{Warning|Do not use this template in [[WP:WIAA|articles]] (as search links [[WP:EL#Links normally to be avoided|are not appropriate in articles]]). The template is only for [[Help:Talk page|talk pages]] and other process pages ([[WP:HD|Help desk]], [[WP:PROJ|WikiProjects]], [[Help:User page|user pages]], etc.). The template will produce an ugly messagebox warning if you attempt to use it in an article.}}
