Proper use of pages in the File namespace

Elder Gunn, on the File:Lighthouse.jpg page you included wikitext that caused the image to be displayed again. I'm not sure what you were trying to accomplish with that, but that's not really within the purpose of pages in the File namespace. The File namespace already has special handling for images and displays the image, so there's no reason to have the image displayed twice.

The text portion of a page in the File namespace is set aside for describing the file (an image in this case). You might mention where the picture was taken, who took it, why it's important, the licensing for the image, etc.

For this particular image, it's not clear to me what it has to do with the LDSTech wiki. It's not linked to from any other page. The only reason to upload a file to the LDSTech wiki is because it is needed on some other page. If you think it's important to include this image on some other page, then do so, but remember that the LDSTech wiki is not a place for storage of personal files.
