DomainFiles that have been created with a specific technique such as long-exposure photography (Q1082855), microscopy (Q1074953) or many others. Note it should be reasonable to set a type constraint "instance or subclass of" technique (Q2695280)

With the gradual establishment of the Structured Data in Commons, it would be good to have such a property that will allow to make an infinity of interesting queries. Christian Ferrer (talk) 18:10, 11 August 2019 (UTC)


  • It could be labelled image-making technique, since photos are a type of image, and other types of image also have techniques. It would be a sub-property of fabrication method (P2079), or perhaps that property could just be used directly? Ghouston (talk) 21:43, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
OK for the label "image-making technique", I did not think about fabrication method (P2079), though maybe a bit too generic. See what others think. Christian Ferrer (talk) 05:05, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
