This image is a JPEG version of the original TIF image at File: Constitution of the United States, page 1.tif.

This JPEG version should be used when displaying the file from Commons, as the MediaWiki software is unable to create a thumbnail or preview of the original TIF file, because it is larger than 1000 megapixels. However, any edits to the image should be based on the original TIF version in order to prevent generation loss, and both versions should be updated. Do not make edits based on this version.
